Rodney Joffe is not the only CHS deserving a close look. And to date, it appears Stefan Halper and Christopher Steele received, as most, a glance in their directions by the special counsel’s team.
The Crossfire Hurricane and Robert Mueller Special Counsel teams undisputedly had a problem with confidential human sources, or “CHS.” The question remains whether John Durham’s team also has a problem — with double-standards.
Yesterday, The Federalist reported that on Friday a federal judge concluded, “[D]ocuments suggest that Stefan Halper ‘may have made clear misstatements to the FBI’ and may be responsible for ‘some falsehoods’ about Michael Flynn and Svetlana Lokhova…” The judge’s comments came during proceedings in Lokhova’s defamation case against Halper, with the potential “misstatements” and “falsehoods” concerning Halper’s interviews with FBI agents in August of 2016.
According to electronic communications documenting the agents’ interview with Halper on August 11, 2016, Halper claimed to have witnessed Lokhova leave a dinner with Flynn, after which she “surprised everyone and got into [Flynn’s] cab and joined [Flynn] on the train ride to London.” Halper further “recalled that LOKHOVA ‘latched’ onto Flynn when he was at the [dinner.].”
The FBI’s summary of Halper’s comments added that he claimed to be “somewhat suspicious of LOKHOVA” and that he “believes that LOKHOVA’S father may be a Russian Oligarch living in London.” Halper repeated the story of Lokhova joining Flynn in a cab the next day during a second interview. But contrary to Halper’s claims, he did not attend the dinner at which Flynn spoke, Lokhova did not leave the dinner with Flynn, and she did not jump into a cab with him nor accompany him to London on the train.
In addition to Halper’s alleged lies to the FBI, Lokhova claims he repeated his false allegations about her and “General Flynn to various members […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
