After the New York Times revealed that the FBI sent a second spy to infiltrate the Trump campaign during the 2016 US election – a ‘honeypot’ who went by the name of Azra Turk who posed as a research assistant to the first spy they sent in, Stefan Halper – the rest of the MSM has been virtually silent.

Both the Washington Post and CNN – which breathlessly reported on their peers’ anonymously-sourced anti-Trump propaganda for two years – have somehow failed to write a single article mentioning Azra Turk.

It’s been 24 hours since the New York Times reported that the FBI sent a honeypot with a fake name and job to entrap a Trump campaign advisor overseas, and the Washington Post is still refusing to report on it. Any thoughts, @ErikWemple? pic.twitter.com/Alpc8XmEWU

Rather than admit they were wrong and that Barr was right about the Obama administration sending spies overseas to entrap Trump campaign advisors, the Collusion Truthers have apparently decided to just ignore the news entirely. pic.twitter.com/GnMVqxkS5B

As the Times revealed on Thursday, the FBI operative who went by the name Azra Turk repeatedly flirted with Trump aide George Papadopoulos during their encounters as well as in email exchanges according to an October, 2018 Daily Caller report, confirmed by the Times.

While in London in 2016, Ms. Turk exchanged emails with Mr. Papadopoulos, saying meeting him had been the “highlight of my trip,” according to messages provided by Mr. Papadopoulos.

“I am excited about what the future holds for us 🙂,” she wrote. -New York Times

And as the Times makes clear, “the FBI sent her to London as part of the counterintelligence inquiry opened that summer” to investigate the Trump campaign.
