Skip to comments.Trump Pressed Australian Leader to Help Barr Investigate Mueller Inquiry’s Origins

The discussion was another instance of the president using American diplomacy for potential personal gain.
President Trump pushed the Australian prime minister during a recent telephone call to help Attorney General William P. Barr gather information for a Justice Department inquiry that Mr. Trump hopes will discredit the Mueller investigation, according to two American officials with knowledge of the call.
The White House restricted access to the calls transcript to a small group of the presidents aides, one of the officials said, an unusual decision that is similar to the handling of a July call with the Ukrainian president that is at the heart of House Democrats impeachment inquiry into Mr. Trump. Like that call, the discussion with Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia shows the extent to which Mr. Trump sees the attorney general as a critical partner in his goal to show that the Mueller investigation had corrupt and partisan origins, and the extent that Mr. Trump sees the Justice Department inquiry as a potential way to gain leverage over Americas closest allies.
And like the call with the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky, the discussion with Mr. Morrison shows the president using high-level diplomacy to advance his personal political interests.

Mueller was a traitor and a fraud as was his “investigation”
So why wouldn’t Trump seek help from anywhere, anyone?
Oh such a SINISTER HEADLINE, Slimes
Probably more BS but so what if he did. It’s getting ridiculous. The MSM is like a gossipy old crone.
and...so??...Barr testified he was going to investigate this whole thing...even named a US attorney to take charge...they just keep acting like Trump has no power over this. Hilarious.
Maybe all this crap is that they want to scare the leaders of other countries into not cooperating?
Thinking that they might impeach Trump and then it will be back to business as usual...
Bringing justice to these criminals is not personal gain. These bastards are pushing the envelope and are going to get the nightmare scenario from which they will not survive.
“potential personal gain”
LOL..this is really SO SAD To purposely falsely opine
All the while hiding behind The First Amendment, masquerading as “journalism”
So who is the so called “whistleblower” for this sedition smear job?
Arrest them all NOW = it’s WAR!
And we know for a FACT that Australia donated multi millions to Hillary’s campaign.
Because Australia said so.
That’s his job.
The New York Times has gone from being the “Old Gray Lady” to the “Dorian Gray Lady” over the past few years.
I get more truth reading the National Enquirer these days than 98% of the MSM. Maybe the “Men in Black” knew what they were doing!
This is just going to go on and on and on.
This is all pretty disgusting. This will be the big news item tonight and of course it is more moving the goal posts.
It’s getting real close to that. This scenario is what the military considers to be a domestic enemy of the Republic one. These traitors can be labeled as enemy combatants tomorrow thus opening the door to full scale destructive suppression.
This is such an obvious attempt at spinning of the report that is coming down the pike. The Democrats know that the whole Russia collusion hoax is about to come crashing down.
DRUDGE in big red letters
TRUMP PRESSED AUSTRALIAN LEADER TO INVESTIGATE MUELLER
They are trying to criminalize the president for defending himself? Saying that defending himself is self serving? What do the dems call impeaching a president based on an anonymous source claiming to have info from anonymous sources. Who benefits politically from that?
