Trump-Supporting Pentagon Analyst Had Security Clearance Stripped By Obama Admin
Pentagon analyst Adam Lovinger had his security clearance stripped by the Obama admin after he questioned the contracts with a man the FBI had spying on Trump campaign.
Psst, um MSM? This is an improper revocation of a security clearance to get back at someone. Will you be covering this story anytime soon?
I love that Sarah Sanders named names of those Trump is thinking about pulling clearance.
Trump-supporting Pentagon analyst stripped of security clearance after Stefan Halper complaintshttps://t.co/6l1frwpFn5

A Trump-supporting Pentagon analyst was stripped of his security clearance by Obama-appointed officials after he complained of questionable government contracts to Stefan Halper, the FBI informant who spied on the Trump presidential campaign.
Adam Lovinger, a 12-year strategist in the Pentagon’s Office of Net Assessment, complained to his bosses about Halper contracts in the fall of 2016, his attorney, Sean M. Bigley, told The Washington Times.
On May 1, 2017, his superiors yanked his security clearance and relegated him to clerical chores.
Mr. Bigley filed a complaint July 18 with the Pentagon’s senior ethics official, charging that Mr. Lovinger’s superiors misused the security clearance process to punish him. He said his client complained about excessive “sweetheart” deals for Mr. Halper and for a “best friend” of Chelsea Clinton.
“As it turns out, one of the two contractors Mr. Lovinger explicitly warned his ONA superiors about misusing in 2016 was none other than Mr. Halper,” Mr. Bigley wrote in his ethics complaint, which called the contracts “cronyism and corruption.”
Mr. Lovinger filed a whistleblower reprisal complaint in May with the Defense Department inspector general against James Baker, director of the Office of Net Assessment. The complaint also singles out Washington Headquarters Services, a Pentagon support agency that awarded the Halper contracts totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars.
In an internal October 2016 email to higher-ups, Mr. Lovinger wrote of “the moral hazard associated with the Washington Headquarters Services contracting with Stefan Halper,” the complaint said. It said Mr. Baker hired Mr. Halper to “conduct foreign relations,” a job that should be confined to government officials.
Of course, actual corruption on the part of Obama’s regime gets ignored.
Obama can do this but Trump can’t?
Democrats lie, cheat and steal regularly and it’s always someone else’s fault.
