Fox News’ Tucker Carlson interviewed former Trump campaign co-chair Sam Clovis Tuesday about his interaction with FBI informant Stefan Halper.


“Several days before the September 1st meeting I had the opportunity to receive emails from Steven Halper, Dr. Halper, sent emails using the imprimatur of him knowing Carter Page, and asked for a sit-down with me,” Clovis said.

“He just wanted to come in and discuss foreign policy and to provide some–what he thought might be his–some of his writings that would be able to contribute, help us, in the campaign. I arranged that meeting. We had that meeting in Washington, D.C. on the 1st of September. It lasted about an hour.”

He continued:

“I had the opportunity to discuss over coffee with him his research, and it mostly was focused on China. And then I think after that meeting, and then on the 27th of September I received an email from him with several attachments, and I can be honest with you, Tucker, I haven’t even opened those attachments to this day. I have no idea what was in them, but they were mostly titled papers that dealt with China. I think he used my meeting as a–using my meeting as a bona fide with George Papadopoulos, to have a meeting with him, that I did not know about, that was subsequent to my meeting with him on the 1st of September.”

Clovis, along with Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, were approached by Stefan Halper, an FBI informant and Cambridge professor, The Daily Caller reported last Friday. (RELATED: Cambridge Professor Spied On Trump Campaign Advisers)
