(Tea Party PAC) – The New York Times recently reported that, according to a leak, President Trump “pushed” the Australian Prime Minister in a September phone call to help Attorney General Bill Barr to gather information that could potentially undermine Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel “collusion” investigation.
The Times reported, “[T]he 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 America’s closest allies.”
A letter from Australian Ambassador Joe Hockey addressed to Barr in May of this year, however, completely refuted the New York Times’ wild assertion, however.
The Australian Ambassador, in May, acknowledged that Trump had announced Barr would be conducting an investigation into the origins of Spygate, and even offered Barr assistance.
Hockey wrote on May 28 to Barr that “The Australian government will use its best endeavors to support your efforts in this matter. While Australia’s former High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, The Hon. Alexander Downer, is no longer employed by the Government, we stand ready to provide you with all relevant information to support your inquiries…”

Now, Lifezette is reporting that Michael Smith provided Barr with information regarding Alexander Downer and the Clinton Foundation. The documents go back to a 2006 memorandum establishing an understanding between the Australian government and the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton HIV/AIDs Initiative (CHAI).
Lifezette reported on the information that Australian investigator Michael Smith gave to FBI investigators regarding Alexander Downer and the Clinton Foundation:
The materials Smith is giving the FBI focus on a 2006 memorandum of understanding between the Australian government and the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton HIV/AIDs Initiative (CHAI). Smith claims the foundation received a “$25M financial advantage dishonestly obtained by deception” as a result of actions by Bill Clinton and Downer, who was then Australia’s minister of foreign affairs.
Also included in the Smith materials are evidence he believes shows “corrupt October 2006 backdating of false tender advertisements purporting to advertise the availability of a $15 million contract to provide HIV/AIDS services in Papua New Guinea on behalf of the Australian government after an agreement was already in place to pay the Clinton Foundation and/or associates.”
A third complaint concerns what Smith describes as “the $10 million financial advantage dishonestly obtained by deception between April 1, 2008, and Sept. 25, 2008, at Washington, D.C., New York, New York, and Canberra Australia involving an MOU between the Australian government, the “Clinton Climate Initiative,” and the purported “Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute Inc.”
There is much more to the investigation into Alexander Downer than we suspected!
