All indications are 👇THIS IS THE GUY 👇, Stefan Halper, redacted from the originating "EC"; that contacted C Page; that started the CoIntel investigation into Trump; that is now under debate by @DevinNunes , and being protected by the DOJ/FBI as a "source".— TheLastRefuge (@TheLastRefuge2) May 11, 2018

HOLY BLEEPING BLEEP: About That FBI ‘Source,’ by @KimStrassel https://t.co/T81ZXuAGOt via @WSJOpinion— Mollie (@MZHemingway) May 11, 2018
To quote Indiana Jones "I've got a baaaaad feeling about this..." - if this is what I think it is, an FBI asset or "spy" paid to collect on the Trump campaign was not only illegal it confirms the FBI was trying to support one candidate and diminished another Candidate https://t.co/th5DnVDEoC— Tony Shaffer (@T_S_P_O_O_K_Y) May 11, 2018

The Department of Justice lost its latest battle with Congress Thursday when it allowed House Intelligence Committee members to view classified documents about a top-secret intelligence source that was part of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign. Even without official confirmation of that source’s name, the news so far holds some stunning implications.
Among them is that the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation outright hid critical information from a congressional investigation. In a Thursday press conference, Speaker Paul Ryan bluntly noted that Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes’s request for details on this secret source was “wholly appropriate,” “completely within the scope” of the committee’s long-running FBI investigation, and “something that probably should have been answered a while ago.” Translation: The department knew full well it should have turned this material over to congressional investigators last year, but instead deliberately concealed it.
House investigators nonetheless sniffed out a name, and Mr. Nunes in recent weeks issued a letter and a subpoena demanding more details. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s response was to double down—accusing the House of “extortion” and delivering a speech in which he claimed that “declining to open the FBI’s files to review” is a constitutional “duty.” Justice asked the White House to back its stonewall. And it even began spinning that daddy of all superspook arguments—that revealing any detail about this particular asset could result in “loss of human lives.”
This is desperation, and it strongly suggests that whatever is in these files is going to prove very uncomfortable to the FBI.....
