I am a 'veteran' of reading Adam Goldman (NYT) articles about Halper's role with the FBI so here are pointers. You always have to ask:
1) Why did he write the article?
2) When did he write the article?
3) What is the narrative he is placing?
4) What has he left out?
2/ You might remember that McCabe picked Goldman of all people to interview him about the use of 'Confidential Human Sources' in Operation Crossfire Hurricane - funny that!
3/ Goldman made it his life's work to spin for the FBI on Trump/Russia Hoax newyorker.com/news/q-and-a/f…
4/ Goldman's (McCabe's) argument is that the President was a national security risk because he fired Comey. "Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security." nytimes.com/2019/01/11/us/…
5/ By the time of this article by Goldman 'F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia' dated Jan. 11, 2019, Trump and his team have already been investigated for nearly 3 years, and nothing has been found. Desperate!
6/ Goldman is the go-to guy whenever the heat about the FBI spying on the campaign gets too much. Trump smokes Halper out in May 2018:
7/ This is Goldman's implausible explanation for spying. The President is portrayed as nuts. nytimes.com/2018/05/18/us/…
8/ What was it that prompted Goldman (ie McCabe) to publish his latest article on the FBI Russia investigation? Answer: Barr's criticism's of the FBI.
9/ The message by NYT (McCabe) is that the FBI threw their best guys at this, hence sudden reference to Operation 'Ghost Stories'.
10/ The main message is that the Russia investigation was legally predicated, started on 31 July 2016, and was conducted properly. if only it were true..
11/ What is completely left out is the espionage by Halper against Gen Flynn. It is referred to in earlier article by Goldman/NYT but is suspiciously absent now.
12/ The reason why spying by Halper on Gen Flynn is absent from the latest FBI propaganda piece by NYT is because it predates the official timeline by many months and was not legally predicated.

CNN are really quiet about their part in the Russia Hoax.
No investigation, no firings and no “self-reflection”.
Let's take a look at how CNN promoted the collusion myth
On July 24-25, Jake Sullivan, Hillary's chief foreign policy adviser, was briefing CNN's "on air talent" and producers about the whole Russia hoax narrative. /2
July 24, 2016: CNN's Jake Tapper enables Hillary campaign manager to proclaim Russia was helping to elect Trump, Republican platform was changed to aid Russia and push other Hillary/Fusion GPS talking points.
This was repeated by other media outlets. /3

Jonathan Chait (NY Mag) published the below today. "No, the Steele Dossier Did Not Invent the Russia Scandal The report was faulty, but Trump was very, very guilty." nymag.com/intelligencer/…
Why? Because he is one of the original Russia Hoaxers trying to memory-hole what he did /1
In APRIL 2016, Chait was already on message pushing Fusion GPS, i.e. Hillary/McCain narrative:
"Why Is Donald Trump a Patsy for Vladimir Putin?" Apr 28, 2016

In his April 2016 article describing Trump as "Putin's stooge" Chait builds on two other Fusion GPS-placed stories by Franklin Foer and Michael Crowler.
The first sign of their targeting is the appearance of Trump advisors Gen Flynn and Paul Manafort in these articles. /3

Hillary campaign lawyer Sussmann is indicted by the grand jury. The indictment was sought by Special Counsel Durham.
The specific count is lying to the FBI by not disclosing that Sussmann was acting on behalf of a client when he made anti-Trump allegations before the election
The indictment says that Sussmann's alleged lie made the FBI open an investigation and waste resources/time
Everyone should read the full indictment to appreciate the scale of the alleged deception operation undertaken just before the 2016 election
