Former Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer helped to bring in $25 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation…before he prompted the FBI to spy on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
From Conservative Post:
the former Australian Foreign Minister helped put together on of the Clinton Foundation’s biggest foreign donations ever back in February of 2006. Both he and former President Bill Clinton signed the “Memorandum of Understanding” which stated that the money was going towards providing screenings and medical drug treatment for people in Asia suffering from AIDS.
The donation was initially meant to go to the Clinton Foundation… however, it was then handed to an affiliate, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI). As Breitbart put it, “The project was lauded for its help in China, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and Vietnam, but auditors criticized its “management weaknesses” and inadequate budgetary oversight.”
Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee, Representative Jim Jordan, stated, “The Clintons’ tentacles go everywhere. So, that’s why it’s important.” Jordan has been very vocal about his support for the Trump administration during the entirety of the Russia investigation. He continued, “We continue to get new information every week it seems that sort of underscores the fact that the FBI hasn’t been square with us.”
Interestingly, The New York Timesfailed to disclose these details in a May 16 story entitled “A Secret Mission, a Code Name and Anxiety: Inside the Early Days of the F.B.I.’s Trump Investigation” in which they detailed Downer’s involvement in “Crossfire Hurricane,” the code name for the interview which led directly to an investigation into ties between Russia and then Presidential candidate Donald Trump.
They did, however, manage to capture something that Representative Matt Gaetz of Florida once told the Fox Business Network: “It’s like the deep state all got together to try to orchestrate a palace coup,” he said.
