More details have begun to emerge about the Cambridge professor who allegedly acted as an FBI informant on the Trump campaign, including how much money the federal government paid him in 2016, when he was allegedly attempting to draw out information from campaign advisers about "collusion" with Russia.

According to public records, Stefan Halper, a 73-year-old American-born professor at Cambridge University with ties to both American and British intelligence stretching back decades, received $282,000 and $129,000 in 2016 and 2017, respectively, from the Department of Defense’s Office of Net Assessment, the internal think tank that reports directly to the secretary of defense (then Ash Carter).

As the New York Post notes, it is unclear how much of the money if any from the Office of Net Assessment was directed to Halper for his alleged role as an informant on the Trump campaign.

Halper was identified by multiple outlets after reports published Friday by the Washington Post and New York Times provided enough details about the Trump campaign "spy" for other outlets to connect the dots. Both reports described an American-born British academic who met with Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, two Trump campaign advisers who have since been ensnared in the federal Russia probe.

In response to the allegations, President Trump announced Sunday that he is calling on the Department of Justice to investigate "whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purpose" and to find out who in the Obama administration may have played a role in the alleged operation.

"I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes - and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!" he tweeted Sunday.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 20, 2018

On Sunday, the DOJ responded to Trump's demand by saying they were going to "expand" their ongoing FISA application review to include "whether there was any impropriety or political motivation in how the FBI conducted its counterintelligence investigation of persons suspected of involvement with the Russian agents who interfered in the 2016 presidential election."

"The Department has asked the Inspector General to expand the ongoing review of the FISA application process to include determining whether there was any impropriety or political motivation in how the FBI conducted its counterintelligence investigation of persons suspected of involvement with the Russian agents who interfered in the 2016 presidential election," DOJ spokesperson Sarah Isgur Flores said in a statement Sunday. "As always, the IG will consult with the appropriate U.S. Attorney if there is any evidence of potential criminal conduct."

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein also responded to Trump's call for an investigation, saying in a statement, "If anyone did infiltrate or surveil participants in a presidential campaign for inappropriate purposes, we need to know about it and take appropriate action."

Seems outrageous, but keep in mind they all thought Hillary would win and none of this would ever come to light.

If Obama's involved, does he still get a Presidential library?

Here's How Much The Federal Government Paid Alleged Trump Campaign 'Spy' In 2016

Biased and misleading headline.....

objective journalism 101 Headline:

Here's How The Much Department of Defense’s Office of Net Assessment Paid national security asset In 2016.

You see, Russia is not our friend. Russia has been actively working to weaken our government for years, perhaps decades. To benefit themselves.

They finally found the easiest entry into hacking our elections....an idiot white nationalist candidate who's only interest is himself....

So the Russians did everything they could to make sure dumb-ass donnie was elected.....

Our defense department was aware of this and wanted to find out who, if anyone was actually selling out....

Based on dip-shit donnie's response.....I think we know the answer....

most easy to take advantage of

You snowflakes are a fucking joke. One day you sell to your enabled sheeple voters that Putin is in bed with Trump, and the next day you fear monger your sheep that he’s gonna start a war with Russia over Syria. You stupid assholes can’t sell it both ways. Did they pick Trump to have differences over Syria... just because he was the easiest to take advantage of... or did Putin truly loath that dishonest whore?

Time for you to be honest... ain’t no enabled inner city potatoes, illegal chalupas, enslaved welfare rats posting here for you to shovel your shit too... for votes. Might as well be honest.

It's racist even to think that.

He gets his own library even if he's in prison. 'Cause racism.

Yes,but it probably won't include his homosexual porn.

Then they would have picked JEB or Bubbette! to back. Both are for rent to anyone with the money.

As I stated, Russia did all they could to swing the election to DD45 because he will be (and has been) the easier of the two to manipulate.

For the 2020 Presidential race, Trump should announce that he placing several FBI "surveillance" agents in the Democrat campaign simply to ensure that the Russians aren't trying to influence the election.

You'd think the Dems would desist before they teach Trump every dirty trick in the book for subverting the CIA/FBI/NSA for partisan purposes.

I forget...it's only illegal or unethical if a Republican does it. If a Dem does the same things, it's just noble public service daring to push the legal boundaries to stop Orange Hitler and his marauding gang of Deplorables.
