Skip to comments.Donald Trump wants investigation into Australia's role in 'Russian hoax'
Posted on 05/24/2019 5:03:04 PM PDT by ameribbean expat
It is a potentially explosive development for the historically solid US-Australian alliance and the first time Trump has publicly named Australia while discussing what he calls the Russia hoax and witch hunt.
Trump said on Friday he had declassified potentially millions of pages of intelligence documents related to surveillance activities on his campaign and Barr would be in charge of analysing it.
So what Ive done is Ive declassified everything, Trump told reporters at the White House on Friday before leaving on a trip to Japan.
He can look and I hope he looks at the UK and I hope he looks at Australia and I hope he looks at Ukraine.
I hope he looks at everything, because there was a hoax that was perpetrated on our country.

Thats pretty stupid. Just because these are historic allies doesnt mean we share the same national interests. The Brits and Aussies and Ukrainians were all colluding with Obama for their own national interests. They all had their reasons for contributing to the witch hunt and Russia hoax. They never thought it would ever be revealed.
Its going to be revealed. These people are not our friends. In international relations you dont have Friends. You have people with mutual interests and enemies.
If I were a true blithering idiot, I would be unable to perceive or understand hyperbole.
I believe you are wrong. Do you have a source? Papadopolis has said publicly, and in his book, that he did not request the meeting. I strongly suspect he said this under oath as well. Maybe Downer legitimately thought he was on an honest and righteous mission, but if so, got played.
His Excellency the Honourable Alexander Downer, Companion of the Order of Australia, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, High Commmisioner of the Commonwealth of Australia to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
His Excellency? Seriously? You're really gonna post that? You know that "Excellency" carries less than zero credibility here, right?
The idea that he was going around seeking meeting with 30 year old nobody lawyers is honesty pretty absurd. He agreed to meet Papadopoulous because Papadopoulous said he worked for Trump and asked for a meeting and used a social connection to ask for a meeting. He had no reason to expect Papadopoulous would say anything particularly interesting and certainly not that he'd say anything important - but it was just possible the man might be a useful connection given that he did work for Donald Trump.
The American media seems to be constantly downplaying who Downer is, because I think they know their conspiracy scenario becomes quite absurd when it's understood who and what he is and his history.
A rockhard conservative politician who has been a friend to the United States for decades. A man who describes Barack Obama as a disappointing US President while praising Donald Trump's foreign relations skills.
Australia has never denied being part of the Russia hoax story - let the whole truth come out.
Hyperbole my ass
Your opinion is immaterial. If we determine that an enemy of ours is on your soil, you will give him up or we will come get him.
Alexander Downer has denied it in interviews.
The Australian government in general is treating the allegation as the ridiculous joke it is.
It wasn’t the whole of Australia or even the entire government. It was a few bad apples just like in the US.
It’s not Australia that’s bad but it absolutely is a few Australian diplomats, politicians, and IC members that _will_ be held to account.
Overthrowing a government is no small, innocent thing. Conspiring to do so is going to leave a mark. Best would be to excise the cancerous ones publicly and viciously. This cannot ever happen again.
I couldn’t love this man more! #TRUMP2020
Downer was tricked, instructed, or coerced to meet with Papa. That does make sense.
What doesn’t make sense is why would Papa just up and request a meeting with Downer to say “hey mate, I’ve got some dirt on a candidate of a foreign election....”
Something stinks. Both of them were likely corralled into this.
Downer was a Clinton toady.
The Clinton Foundation was an international jugernaut. It had conections with communists , socialists and progressives all over the world. And so the People voted serendipitously to end the governmental subjugation of America. The elected Donald Trump.
Now the world wide movement skeleton is being revealed to encompas Obama, Hillary, and prominant politcians in Britain, Australia, Cnada, and elsewhere. They supported an intelligence operation designed to usurp a duly elected president of the United States, under the cover of a non existant “Russia Collusion” narrative, back up by false documentation composed and arrayed and incestuously verified by a press which had information leaked to it.
we are very fortunate to have DOnald trump. And I hope he continues to unveil this nefarious attempt to subjugate the American people. Indictments need to be issued.
Deep State Target: How I Got Caught in the Crosshairs of the Plot to Bring Down President Trump
Excellent book about the Deep state and the Russia investigation.
Downer from Australia was directly responsible for threats and manipulations for the Deep State.
That's right -- an American idiot who was so stupid he left the $10,000 with his attorney so he couldn't be entrapped into bringing it into the US.
Actually it seems out of character for the man, others who know him agree, but he behaved out of character for a reason.
Great Britain was involved in a major way. Downer was just a messenger.
Sorry, the moron would have to be Downer. Let's be honest here. Hillary Clinton had a homebrew server in the basement/bathroom or whatever. The fact that Papadopoulos said the Russians had dirt on Hillary is news? That's laughable. It would be news if he said they didn't.
How terrible must the Austrian Government's Intelligence Service have to be to take gossip and blow it out of proportion? They would have to be the stupidest intelligence service on the planet.
The FBI started it's the investigation into Clinton's bathroom server nearly a year before. It's absurd to think that the Russian's didn't have this information and didn't hack the server. Hell, the emails were also on creepy Wiener's laptop.
Papadopoulos wasn't providing groundbreaking news. News so important that Downer had to report it to the intelligence services immediately. What a joke. It was widely speculated that her wide-open unsecured server had to have been hacked by every intelligence service in the world.
Downer expects everyone to believe that he was shocked, dumbfounded when he heard this gossip from a low-level Trump aid. He must have peed his pants when heard Russians want to interfere in an election (shocking, I tell you). Something that was common knowledge to anyone with two braincells.
