Angleton redux

"Stefan Halper’s Role In Crossfire Hurricane More Significant Than Previously Known" (Falun Gong).  It was Halper who directed the FBI to include Page, and, through the creation of a probably phony story (or at least a story based on a meeting he falsely claimed he attended), Flynn.  The same group who set the trap then ratted out those caught in the trap.

"In Final Days, Trump Gave Up on Forcing Release of Russiagate Files, Nunes Prober Says" (Maté).  Lots of key material still hidden, often on the usual bogus 'national security' rationale - phony claims of protecting sources and tradecraft - employed by the CIA, etc.  There's even a Nosenko-type, a probably phony 'defector' who purports to provide insider knowledge of the Kremlin (believing Nosenko through thick and thin is what eventually ended Angleton's career).
