“I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or if they try, they will shortly be out of office.”
― Milton Friedman

“Human beings are born with different capacities. If they are free, they are not equal. And if they are equal, they are not free.”

Gettin' by with a little Halp from his friends

Well, I think we know the source of the $3K Stefan Halper paid George Papadopoulos. See below if you wonder what that means.

Note: the date of the payment is contemporaneous with Halper's meeting with Papadopoulos.

Update, 4:41PM.
I want to qualify that last sentence. I don't consider "contemporaneous" to be a year later.

Halper was "investigating" Papadopoulos in July 2016. Halper was on a $411K retainer.

May 17, 2017 is the date Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as Special Counsel.

July 2016 is the date Stefan Halper "reportedly begins meetings with Trump advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, secretly gathering information for the FBI."

The "investigator" started early, or the investigation was already in progress. Same point, but emphasized.
