Australian Diplomat Whose Tip Prompted FBI’s Russia-Probe Has Tie To Clintons

Former Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer’s, now Australia’s ambassador to London, provided the account of a conversation with Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos at a London bar in 2016 that became the official reason the FBI opened the Russia counterintelligence probe.

But lawmakers say the FBI didn’t tell Congress about Downer’s prior connection to the Clinton Foundation, securing $25 million in aid from his country to help the Clinton Foundation fight AIDS. Republicans say they are concerned the new information means nearly all of the early evidence the FBI used to justify its election-year probe of Trump came from sources supportive of the Clintons, including the controversial Steele dossier.

  1. Hillary’s criminal activities and corruptions are world known. So what? It’s not as if Mueller or anyone in the FBI has time to investigate the criminal-in-chief now that they’re still sooooo preoccupied in finding who helped put Trump into power. Whatever the case, even if they have nothing better to do, Mueller is not ready to get suicided, neither is anyone in the FBI. So their only option is to continue “investigating” Trump for the next 7 years unless they’ll assassinate him beforehand.
