Aussie Downer: You might not know the name of Alexander Downer, but you should. The former Australian Foreign Minister and current Australian ambassador to the United Kingdom, Downer is the person who actually started the ball rolling in creating the anti-Trump dossier. And, it turns out, he's a Clintonite.
Downer sat down for a pint or two in a London pub with former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos back in 2016. Papadopoulos claimed to Downer that the Russians had some nasty information on Hillary Clinton.
Downer subsequently told the FBI. And the FBI then began investigating not Clinton, but possible ties between the Trump campaign and the Russians.
When it became known that a foreign diplomat had informed the FBI, it was treated as if it was a simple act of diplomatic chivalry by an ally tipping us off to dirty tricks by the Russians.
It turns out it's a bit more complicated than that. In fact, as The Hill has reported, Downer is a Clintonista, and signed over $25 million in Australian government funds to the Clinton Foundation to fight AIDs in Southeast Asia. It was one of the biggest gifts ever to the foundation.
Today, nation after nation that once tapped their taxpayers to give money to the Clintons on the assumption that she would be president are walking away from the scandal plagued global Clinton charity, which has been shown to be a front for enriching the Clinton family. The Clinton Foundation today is a shell of its former self.
Meanwhile, the plot thickens further, as's Mark Tapscott reports that Downer "is himself closely tied to a Chinese firm experts say is deeply involved in espionage against America."
Tapscott notes that just last month, the heads of the six main U.S. spy agencies warned Americans not to use equipment made by Huawei, a chinese maker of smartphones.
"We're deeply concerned about the risks of allowing any company or entity that is beholden to foreign governments that don't share our values to gain positions of power inside our telecommunications networks," FBI Director Chris Wray told members of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
The Australian, a newspaper down-under, reports that Downer became a member of the board of directors of Huawei's Australian unit all the way back in June of 2011. So Downer is himself compromised, as everyone who exists in the Clinton web appears to be.
Recall, now, that Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee both ponied up to have former British spy Christopher Steele gin up a phony dossier on Donald Trump, to be used as the basis for the current ongoing investigation of ties between the Trump campaign and the Russians.
And that former FBI Director James Comey dutifully took the dossier to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to approve a wiretap of former minor Trump aide Carter Page, as the entry point into a much larger investigation of Trump's entire campaign.
As of today, that year and a half old investigation has yielded nothing, but has taken down a bunch of peripheral players in and around the Trump administration on technical violations of the law.
What neither the FBI nor the Mueller investigations revealed to the public or Congress was that the FISC application to spy on Page was based on information from four Clinton supporters: Steele, Downer, former Clinton Foundation employee and Clinton administration official Sidney Blumenthal, and Clinton dirty tricks operative Cody Shearer. Journalist Michael Isikoff's reporting on the matter was also used, but it turned out to be sourced from Christopher Steele.
In short, the whole investigation — all of it — was a product of Clinton and her followers, both inside and outside of the FBI and Justice Department.
Let's put this all together. Downer, a Clinton supporter, tells the FBI that the Russians have dirt on Hillary, based on a conversation with a Trump adviser. The FBI launches an investigation.
Hillary Clinton pays a former British spy to dig up dirt on Donald Trump, with Russian officials' help. The resulting dossier is used as a pretense for launching a spying operation against Trump.
Meanwhile, Comey and a variety of high-level openly anti-Trump FBI officials, including James Strzok and Bruce Ohr, collude to drop the investigation into Hillary Clinton's clear breaches of the law with the unsecured, homebrew email server she used while secretary of state. Intelligence officials later say it was almost certain that Clinton's server was hacked by either the Russians, the Chinese or both.
The entire "investigation" of Trump, start to finish, seems to have been propelled by Hillary Clinton and her minions. At some point, Congress, which is responsible for this corrupt and likely illegal mess, should step in and end it by either defunding Mueller, forcing him to focus on the original aims of the investigation, or by simply shutting it down.
If not, it's likely to end up with trumped up charges, pun intended, against a sitting president and demands for his impeachment.
