A BLITZ ON STEFAN HALPER
Stefan Halper has been in the news recently as he was the one who reached out to George Papadopoulos in September 2016 to arrange a meeting in London.

In 1967, Halper graduated from Stanford University with a B.A. with high honours.

Halper then studied at the University of Oxford, graduating with a doctorate in philosophy in 1971.

iwp.edu/faculty/detail…
Presumably shortly after graduation, Halper then began working as a member of the White House Domestic Council as a member of the Nixon Administration, holding the position from 1971 to 1973.

iwp.edu/faculty/detail…
After this, Halper's position evolved, and he joined the Office of Management and Budget as Assistant Director of the Management and Evaluation Division, holding the position from 1973 to 1974.

iwp.edu/faculty/detail…
On August 9, 1974, Gerald Ford was inaugurated as the President of the United States, due to the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon.
Halper was then moved from the Office of Management and Budget to join the office of the Chief of Staff, working as the Assistant to the Chief of Staff. This was a position he held from 1974 to January 20, 1977.

iwp.edu/faculty/detail…
As such, Halper worked as an assistant to three Chiefs of Staff - Alexander Haig (until September 21, 1974), then Donald Rumsfeld (from September 21, 1974 to November 20, 1975), and then Dick Cheney (from November 20, 1975 to January 20, 1977).
On November 2, 1976, Jimmy Carter was elected to become the President of the United States.
Carter said he would not hire a White House Chief of Staff, and he held onto that position (for roughly two years), and as such, Halper left his position on January 20, 1977.
Halper worked as a legislative assistant to Senator William Roth of Delaware holding this position from 1977 to 1979.

Because Halper was working with Senator Roth, he also became a Special Counsel to the United States Congress' Joint Economic Committee.

iwp.edu/faculty/detail…
In 1979, Halper left both positions to become the National Director for Policy Development for George H. W. Bush's Presidential campaign.

iwp.edu/faculty/detail…
At the 1980 Republican convention, Richard V. Allen, then Ronald Reagan's foreign policy adviser for his Presidential campaign, searched for a potential Vice President for Reagan, and spoke with Halper about considering H. W. Bush for the role.

nytimes.com/2000/07/30/mag…
Halper then became the National Director of Policy Coordination on the Reagan / Bush Presidential campaign.

On November 4, 1980, Ronald Reagan was elected to become the President of the United States.
From 1981 to 1984, Halper worked as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State.

iwp.edu/faculty/detail…
As such, Halper served under three different Secretaries of State - Alexander Haig (from January 22, 1981 to July 5, 1982), Walter J. Stoessel, Jr. (from July 5, 1982 to July 16, 1982) and George P. Shultz (from July 16, 1982 to 1984).
After this, Halper became a Senior Advisor to the Department of Defense, and a Senior Advisor to the Department of Justice, positions lasting from 1984 to 2001.

However, in 1982, Halper helped organise Palmer National Bank while working as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, then left his role shortly before the bank opened. By 1984, Halper was Palmer National Bank's chairman.

nytimes.com/1984/11/01/us/…
The idea for Palmer National Bank came about after a conversation between Halper and Harvey D. McLean, Jr. in 1980, both of whom worked on H. W. Bush's Presidential campaign. McLean later became the Vice Chairman of Palmer National Bank.

nytimes.com/1984/11/01/us/…
Halper also became the chairman / majority shareholder of two other banks - the National Bank of Northern Virginia in Leesburg, VA; and the George Washington National Bank in Alexandria, VA.

iwp.edu/faculty/detail…
Oh, apparently Halper's former father-in-law was Ray Cline, who was the Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

Also, Palmer National Bank made loans to customs who then used it to channel the money to a Swiss bank account controlled by Colonel Oliver North, who then used the same bank account to provide military assistance to the contras.

books.google.co.uk/books?id=OhdZC…
Apparently while working on H. W. Bush's Presidential campaign, a member of Halper's research staff was Robert Gambino, a veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency.

books.google.co.uk/books?id=pqevD…
Stefan Halper was indeed married to Ray Cline's daughter, Sibyl Cline, now known as Sibyl MacKenzie.

nytimes.com/1996/03/16/us/…

Several Central Intelligence Agency related people were on the H. W. Bush campaign, including Ray Cline, Sam Wilson, Howard Aaron, Henry Knoche, Robert Gambino, Bruce Rounds, Jon Thomas, Jack Coackley and Richard Stillwell. All working with Halper.

Halper was on the Board of Directors at the National Intelligence Study Center, alongside Ray Cline, in 1983.

Halper also began writing a weekly syndicated column for 30 newspapers, hosting "World Wise", a television program, and "This Week From Washington", a radio program, from 1986 to 2000.

iwp.edu/faculty/detail…
"World Wise" was hosted on NET Television.

The President of Palmer was Webb Hayes IV, and Halper also received assistance in organising Palmer National Bank's foundation from a Texas real estate mogul he met during his trips while working for the Department of State.

washingtonpost.com/archive/busine…
Apparently Halper and his team of Central Intelligence Agency people during the Reagan / Bush ticket actually collected inside information on the Carter Administration's foreign policy - with Halper in charge - although Ray Cline rejected this account.

nytimes.com/1983/07/07/us/…
The real estate mogul involved with Palmer National Bank was apparently Herman K. Beebe, who gave a $2.8 million loan to Harvey McLean.

I will be stepping out the house soon so I'll stop there for the time being.
