Stefan Halper, the man suspected of acting as an FBI informant after infiltrating President Trump’s 2016 campaign, tried to get a job in the administration after the election.
Hapler reportedly eyed an ambassadorship in Asia.
According to Axios:
President Trump’s top trade adviser, Peter Navarro, recommended appointing Stefan Halper, an academic and suspected FBI informant on the Trump campaign, to a senior role in the Trump administration, Axios has learned.
During the presidential transition Navarro recommended Halper, among other people, for ambassador roles in Asia. A White House official said Halper visited the Eisenhower Executive Office Building last August for a meeting about China.
