Peter Navarro, a former Trump Administration Trade Official made a prediction on Maria Bartiromo’s Fox News show “Morning Futures” on Monday predicting that there will be at least three indictments coming from the investigation being run by Special Counsel John Durham concerning the Trump-Russia hoax perpetrated by Obama Administration officials at the request of Hillary Clinton to get her illegal private email server out of the news back at the beginning of the summer of 2016 in an effort to help Clinton get elected in spite of her atrocious mishandling of classified information that would have landed anyone else in prison as a clear violation of the Espionage Act.
Navarro was a trade and economics guy brought into the Trump administration who helped the president turn our economy around and send the Obama/Biden years of economic misery to the ash heap of history, so how would he be privy to such inside information of a special counsel investigation?
Don’t forget that Donald Trump was a businessman and he kept Navarro inside his inner circle Navarro built relationships with the other insiders who would know about such things as how the Durham investigation is going.
Navarro said he has been a registered Democrat who supported the Clinton/Gore administration and he supported Hillary Clinton’s first failed presidential campaign back in 2008. The former Trump adviser also ran for office as a Democrat in California several times and the Hildebeast even endorsed him. Believe it or not, Navarro asserts that he holds progressive views on many social issues, but I think he confuses progressivism with liberalism because he doesn’t seem at all like an evil person.
He joined the Trump campaign as an economic adviser because of Trump’s nationalist economic policies and he too opposes trade deficits and trade deals termed as multilateral. Trump himself preferred to have separate trade deals with individual countries rather than one-size-fits-all because you can negotiate individual trade deals easier than having multiple countries team up on you which gives you less strong of a position. This is why he is anti-China on trade and other foreign policy matters which are important for the United States, something Trump understood from the beginning.
After the election, Trump appointed Navarro to be the Director of the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy within the White House.
Navarro’s influence in the White House grew as other advisers dropped off because they forgot that the president is the one who makes policy and not them. He used his influence to move his China foreign policy ideas to be a centerpiece of Trump’s renegotiating trade deal moves with the Chinese communists.
When Bartiromo asked him about his prediction of three indictments, his response was less than exciting. Navarro told the host that he is making the prediction based on reports by John Solomon last week where it was reported that additional FBI internal documents surrounding the FBI’s spy Stefan Halper and what he did during the summer of 2016 leading up to the election when he targeted Trump campaign members to either find out if any of them knew anything about working with the Russians to dig up opposition research political dirt on Hillary Clinton.
Halper was sent in by the FBI to spy on the Trump campaign. This is not up for dispute. Two months prior to the election George Papadopoulos got a meeting request from Halper, who at the time was a University of Cambridge professor, who asked Papadopoulos to fly to London to discuss international relations and the possibility of Papadopoulos writing a paper on the gas field in the Mediterranean and be paid the sum of $3,000. Halper paid for his flight, which could be construed as entrapment. Papadopoulos flew to England and met with Halper. While discussing the reason he traveled to London, suddenly Hapler switched the subject to Russia, asking Papadopoulos, “You know about hacking the emails from Russia, right?” It was so out of the blue that Papadopoulos saw it as a red flag that something was up. He offered Halper no information and later said it was an absurd question in the first place. George said that Halper was not the only suspicious person to reach out to him, claiming there were two others. According to Papadopoulos’s wife, one of those contacted offered to pay George $30,000 a month during his time with the Trump team, the wife recognizing the offer as something nefarious saying, “It looks to be one among a series of attempts to entrap George. The question today to me is whether these people are simply shady businessmen or are they part of a greater attempt to entrap George in illegal activity.”
And the Halper scenario is just the tip of the iceberg for what the Obama DOJ and intelligence community did to stop Trump, and we know who did what and when they did it, enough to bring dozens of indictments.
