Steven Schrage, the man who unwittingly set up former Trump foreign-policy adviser Carter Page with federal informant Stefan Halper while he was a Cambridge University PhD candidate, is speaking out about the unethical process that went into setting up the deep state’s spying operation against Page.
“I had had a long background working on crime and terrorism at the White House and Congress, and went to Cambridge to finish a PhD I started years earlier at Harvard, and my intent was always to have a conference that looked at presidential campaigns and national security risk,” Schrage said to Maria Bartiromo on Fox News.
He explained that the Cambridge Four, a bumbling crew of disreputable spies including Halper and infamous phony dossier writer Christopher Steele, used his conference as a way to subvert the Trump administration and boost their sagging careers.
Schrage said that Halper grew intently involved after Page joined the conference as a Trump administration representative and tried to work Page to get into the White House fold. Big League Politics broke the story of Halper being an intelligence operative deployed by the deep state to inform on the Trump administration years ago.
“The spark that I really think set this off was when Stephan Halper, Christopher Steele’s old boss Richard Deerlove, and Page were all together, and Trump was portrayed to my surprise as a national security threat, and that’s when the interest really started to bubble in terms of where this took off,” Schrage said.
Halper served as Schrage’s PhD supervisor while at Cambridge. Dealing with the man, Schrage noted the tremendous incompetence and poor temperament of Halper, and how individuals who reach the heights of academia and the intelligence community are often buffoonishly inept.
“One thing I will say that was quite unusual is even after Carter Page had been kind of smeared improperly as a ‘Russian spy,’ Stefan Halper would profusely thank me for introducing him to him,” Schrage said, noting that Halper received multiple six-figure federal payouts for his assistance in the operation.
Schrage expressed outrage that the Republican-controlled Senate has refused to subpoena these spies despite the fact that they were responsible for much of the illegal surveillance against Trump’s associates that occurred at the behest of the departing Obama administration.
“None of the Senate has subpoenaed these or called these people to talk in four years. I think that’s the smoking gun. How are these people being protected? And how are we at a point so close to the election, and with Flynn’s hearing coming up, that nobody has called these people and gotten to the bottom of this?” he wondered.

In addition, Schrage wrote an op/ed on the blog of journalist Matt Taibbi detailing exactly what happened while he was embroiled in a scandal that would go on to put Watergate to shame.
“The remaining mysteries of Russiagate are too important to be turned into a game of political football, or buried until after the election when unsubstantiated allegations could be dug up to sabotage Vice President Biden if he is elected president — as I believe was done to President Trump,” Schrage wrote.
“An FBI source had information that should have stopped Carter Page’s invasive surveillance in August 2016 before it started. A covert anti-Trump operative sought to be appointed to one of the world’s most powerful positions that could be used to undermine the president,” he continued.
“This should not be turned into an “October surprise” or later used to throw any new presidential administration into chaos.Allowing politicians and national security officials to cover up or even profit from abuses of power, puts us on course for even greater disasters. America can’t afford another government and media strike out, after four years of too much denial, incompetence, and coverup,” he concluded.
Blue-state voters will not want to hear this, but this investigation of a major-party presidential candidate (and later a president) by a combination of the FBI and hired Democratic Party oppo researchers is much the same story as Watergate, only worse. https://t.co/LaaTcfgaOR

If the truth about this deep state spying operation is heard and fully understood by the public before November, Trump is looking at another four years in the White House.
Disgraced Former CIA Chief John Brennan: Biden White House Will Use Homeland Security to Crush Trump ‘Insurgency’
A Soviet-style regime is taking shape.
Disgraced former CIA Director John Brennan is promising a Big Brother crackdown against Trump supporters throughout society following the successful installation of the Biden regime by the deep state.
Brennan made the psychopathic, authoritarian declaration during an appearance on MSNBC.
“This is the most relaxed I’ve been in the course of the many inaugurations I’ve watched,” Brennan said, reveling in the fact that he got away with all of his crimes without repercussions.
“I know looking forward that the members of the Biden team who have been nominated or have been appointed are now moving in laser-like fashion to try to uncover as much as they can about what looks very similar to insurgency movements that we have seen overseas,” he said.
Brennan is laying the groundwork to treat President Trump’s supporters like ISIS militants, which Democrat officials have been openly pining for many years to accomplish. He named “religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, nativists, and even libertarians” as the type of groups that will be targeted, profiled and ultimately deprived of their 1st Amendment rights during the Biden administration.
“I really do think that the law enforcement, Homeland Security, intelligence, and even defense officials are doing everything possible to root out what seems to be a very, very serious and insidious threat to our democracy and our republic,” he said.

Big League Politics has reported about the many crimes of Brennan, who was influential in setting up the Russia-gate scam that ultimately failed in unlawfully overturning the results of the 2016 presidential election:
Former CIA director and Deep State-linked career bureaucrat John Brennan praised the willful insubordination of the “intelligence community” when speaking at an event at the National Press Club with other military-industrial complex figures on Thursday…
Brennan’s remarks make it clear that the career national security bureaucratic elite couldn’t care less about fulfilling their traditional role of carrying out the democratically elected President’s policy. The Deep State instead seeks to impose an unpopular and stale agenda against the wishes of the President, preventing the American people any real say in directing the national security policy of their own country…
The use of the phrase ‘Deep State’ by Brennan is telling. For years critics of the permanent Washington, D.C shadow government were told such a thing didn’t exist. For the intensely partisan former CIA director to not only describe the intelligence community apparatus with such a phrase- but to even endorse them as such- reveals how fundamentally disconnected legacy institutions such as the CIA and FBI are from democratic oversight.
It’s hard to paint the Trump administration as anything but a colossal failure with criminals like Brennan gloating and reveling in the destruction of America. Trump did not even have the courage to pardon whistleblowers Edward Snowden and Julian Assange on his way out of office. The deep state wins again.
