NYT Reporter Clams Up On Whether Azra Turk Was FBI Agent

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. But she was actually a government investigator posing as a research assistant, according to people familiar with the operation.

"They didn't use one of these "investigators" with the Hillary Clinton campaign", Levin remarked. Papadopoulos believes Turk worked for the CIA and has ties to Turkish intelligence.

"I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal", Barr told a Congressional hearing.

"What is the media going to do when Congress reveals that Alexander Downer was an asset sent to make contact with me?" Inconvenient truths about the Central Intelligence Agency and FBI's espionage campaign against Team Trump are about to break loose and some complicit Deep State actors are trying to get ahead of the narrative. The woman, who identified herself as Azra Turk, reportedly asked Papadopoulos point-blank if Trump was collaborating with Russians to swing the 2016 election. Indeed it references Papadopoulos' book, Deep State Target, in which he wrote that he immediately realized that the woman claiming to be Aza Turk was definitely not "a Cambridge professor's research assistant". The president responded to the report on May 3, calling the revelation "bigger than WATERGATE". An FBI agent accompanying an FBI informant to try and glean information from Papadopoulos is hardly proof of the grand conspiracy, SPYGATE, that has made its way from Trump's Twitter feed onto the air at Fox and back onto Trump's Twitter feed in a self-propelling cycle.

Attorney General William Barr echoed that characterization in testimony to Congress, saying that he will open an inquiry into "spying" against Trump by the Federal Bureau of Investigation at the origins of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election. "The question is whether it was adequately predicated". Barr told Congress that Horowitz's investigation is due to conclude in May or June. 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. Mueller finished his probe last month, concluding that neither Trump nor anyone in the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation.
