New York Times Identifies Second Spy Who Targeted Trump Campaign

Papadopoulos also argued that the administration of former US President Barack Obama had colluded with Australia, Italy, Turkey, Ukraine and the United Kingdom in a bid to overthrow Trump, who became a president after the November 2016 election.

The New York Times reported on Thursday that as part of the investigation into Trump's campaign, the FBI dispatched an undercover agent to London to meet with Papadopoulos, a Trump foreign policy adviser.

The New York Times broke the story that the FBI sent a woman to meet with Papadopoulos at a bar in London in 2016, which has fueled the president's argument that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into him was politically motivated.

Ms. Turk helped oversee "the politically sensitive operation", working alongside Halper, according to the Times. He maintains that he knew Turk to be a spy from their first meeting, and figured her for a Central Intelligence Agency operative. When Papadopoulos met with the two spies, Turk bluntly asked him whether the Trump campaign is working with Russian Federation. And top bureau officials were enduring fresh attacks over their handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

"I'm not going to abjure the use of the word "spying.' I think, you know, my first job was in Central Intelligence Agency". There is no evidence that a spy was implanted inside Trump's campaign. "They have it all", Papadopoulos wrote on Twitter. "Finally, Mainstream Media is getting involved", he tweeted on Friday. "This is bigger than WATERGATE, but the reverse!". Barr has directed a team to determine whether the spying was adequately predicated.

Meanwhile, Pence said he fully supports Attorney General William Barr in his decision to not testify before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday. The warrant was obtained based on unproven allegations contained in the now-infamous Democrat-financed 'Steele Dossier:' Allegations that former FBI Director Comey admitted later that the agency knew were uncorroborated.

The Federalist's Molly Hemingway discovered that three agents publicly identified as speaking at that intelligence seminar, and one of them now serves as the special agent in charge in the FBI's NY office, and at one time worked closely with Preet Bharara, former USA attorney for the Southern District of NY, "a virulent anti-Trump activist whom the president fired in 2017".

At issue are the origins of the Russian Federation investigation that led to a two-year special counsel probe that found the Trump campaign did not collude with Russian Federation.
