Confirmed: Hal Turner Was A Paid Informant

Hal Turner

Two weeks ago, I wrote that blogger Hal Turner was not just an FBI informant, but a paid one. Yesterday, his lawyer confirmed in court what I alleged two weeks - Turner was on the FBI's payroll.

Ashman's ruling came despite Monday's revelation by Turner's lawyers that the FBI paid Turner "tens of thousands of dollars" to work as an informant from 2002 to 2005. Last year, Turner told a U.S. marshal of a threat by someone to lob mortars into Grant Park during Obama's election celebration...
