Levin breaks down the FBI's secret 'Crossfire Hurricane' 'cabal' against Trump

On the anniversary of Robert Mueller's Russia investigation US President Donald Trump has repeated claims the FBI spied

On Thursday the New York Times reported that within hours of the FBI opening its investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation in the summer of 2016, it had flown two agents to London to meet Downer for a highly secretive interview, after Australian officials cleared the meeting.

The meetings had not previously been reported authoritatively by a major outlet.

According to a previous Times article, it was Mr Downer who held his booze better - extracting an admission from Mr Papadopoulos that Russian Federation was shopping dirt on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to her political rivals.

"After tense deliberations between Washington and Canberra, top Australian officials broke with diplomatic protocol and allowed the ambassador, Alexander Downer, to sit for an Federal Bureau of Investigation interview to describe his meeting with the campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos", the paper reports.

Downer reportedly notified US intelligence officials of his run in with Papadopoulos after the emails, which contained damaging information about Trump's former opponent Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonOregon governor to face state rep in November Progressive pick Wild wins Dem primary for Pa.

Dieter Holterbosch who emigrated to the USA from Germany, where he built an empire that encompassed a family vineyard. Then Duff chose to try and use what information she had about this guy to track him down on social media.

Donald Trump's relations with Australia were tested when he took office previous year over a refugee swap deal and the FBI's investigation into his 2016 campaign has the potential to cause a new diplomatic rift.

Levin referred to a report at the New York Times earlier that day which outlines the origins of the FBI's secretive probe into what it suspected were the Trump campaign's dealings with the Kremlin. The investigation is now run by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III and is no longer known by that code name, and although it hasn't impacted Trump directly, it has brought charges against former Trump campaign officials and more than a dozen Russians.

Trump has repeatedly slammed the probe as a witch hunt.

Mr Papadopoulos became one of Mr Mueller's first scalps, pleading guilty to lying to officials.

He is co-operating with Mueller's investigation. According to the story, what was then known as "Crossfire Hurricane" amongst the handful of agents involved, began months before election day.
