“Justice Department prosecutor U.S. Attorney John Durham is questioning personnel connected to the Pentagon’s Office of Net Assessment, which awarded multiple contracts to FBI informant Stephan Halper. Halper, who was informing the bureau on Trump campaign advisors, is a central figure in the FBI’s original investigation into President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, SaraACarter.com has learned.

(…) Multiple sources confirmed to this news site that Durham has spoken extensively with sources working in the Office of Net Assessment, as well as outside contractors, that were paid through the Pentagon office.

(…) In 2016, Halper was an integral part of the FBI’s investigation into short-term Trump campaign volunteer, Carter Page, and George Papadopolous. Halper first made contact with Page at his seminar in July 2016. Page, who was already on the FBI’s radar, was accused at the time of being sympathetic to Russia. Halper stayed in contact with Page until September 2017.

(…) According to the DoD Inspector General’s report the Office of Net Assessment (ONA) Contracting Officer’s Representatives (CORs) “did not maintain documentation of the work performed by Professor Halper or any communication that ONA personnel had with Professor Halper; therefore, ONA CORs could not provide sufficient documentation that Professor Halper conducted all of his work in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. We determined that while the ONA CORs established a file to maintain documents, they did not maintain sufficient documentation to comply with all the FAR requirements related to having a complete COR.” (Read more: Sara Carter, 11/22/2019)   (Archive)

August 24, 2018 – Pentagon whistleblower claims DoD official awarded investigators of his case with military medals

“A Pentagon whistleblower claims that a Department of Defense official inappropriately incentivized investigators to target him, according to documents sent to Congressional lawmakers and obtained by the Daily Caller.

The security clearance of Adam Lovinger, a Trump-supporting, 12-year Pentagon analyst, was revoked after he questioned why politically connected contractors and FBI-informant Stefan Halper, who spied on the Trump campaign for the bureau, received well-paid contracts to conduct “inherently governmental functions.”

Through a Statement of Reason (SOR) response, drawn up by his lawyer Sean Bigley, Lovinger claims Jim Baker, the Department of Defense’s Director of the Office of Net Assessment (ONA), targeted him through several tactics, one of which was recommending two military officers for prestigious military medals as motivation to look into Lovinger as the target of a classified leak probe.

One of the investigators Baker assigned to the probe, ONA Chief of Staff Cmdr. Anthony Russell (USCG), received a “Recommendation for Award of the Defense Superior Service Medal.” Russell, according to Lovinger’s SOR, was the architect of two national security inquiries targeting Lovinger.”

(,,,) “Russell’s investigation of Lovinger, however, seemed retaliatory even to Washington Headquarters Service General Counsel James Vietti, when Lovinger was up for a senior directorship at the National Security counsel and his superiors stopped the process.

Vietti told Russell in an e-mail on January 17, 2017, that his probe “could look like you’re trying to interfere with or hinder his advancement in some way—and that the e-mail would be sent after he complained  (I think I’m recalling this correctly) that Mr. Baker violated the Hatch Act.”

(..) Russell was not the only military officer reporting to Baker who was instructed to investigate Lovinger and to be nominated by Baker for a military medal. Baker designated Marine Lt. Col. Brian Bruggeman as investigating officer of the probe against Lovinger back on January 12, 2017.” (Read more: The Daily Caller, 8/24/2018)

February 10, 2017 – Lisa Page edits General Flynn’s FBI 302 reports

Late last week General Michael Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell released her filing to the court. …It is clear that as requested by Powell, General Flynn’s case must be dismissed based on the many crimes committed by the government to set him up.

Techno Fog was first on the Internet to release and analyze the document –

Powell describes how the Flynn 302 was altered –

Powell also notes in a footnote that James Clapper was related to the illegal leak of General Flynn’s phone call with Russian Ambassador Kislyak  –

(Timeline editor’s note: We’re including a clipping of Lisa Page (incoming) and Peter Strzok’s (outgoing)  February 10, 2017 text messages that are included in Sidney Powell’s court filing.)

On page 26, Powell states the government’s case against Flynn is “so fundamentally unfair as to be shocking to the universal sense of justice.”

Powell also asserts that the government has the original 302’s that the FBI agents prepared as a result of their illegal interrogation of Flynn in the White House. The FBI’s system does not lose these documents. The only way they could be lost is through tampering. The government doesn’t want to provide them because it is clear that they will exonerate Flynn and it will be “game over” for the Deep State.

A few days later, Sidney Powell retweets the following:
