FBI's Trump Investigation Codenamed 'CROSSFIRE HURRICANE'

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

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.

The revelation the Australian government broke with diplomatic protocol and allowed Downer, then Australia's ambassador to the United Kingdom, to be interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation could damage Australia's recently repaired relationship with US President Donald Trump.

In January the Australian prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, did not deny the first New York Times report that information from Downer had helped to spark the FBI investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 USA election.

The Times previously reported that a young foreign policy aide on the Trump campaign, George PapadopoulosGeorge Demetrios PapadopoulosWe must get to the bottom of Russian efforts to interfere with the 2016 election Intelligence report defends Trump, draws attacks from Dems Schiff on Intel report: GOP "chose not to seriously investigate" collusion MORE, revealed he knew of hacked Democratic Party emails to Australian Ambassador Alexander Downer over late night drinks in London.

The FBI agents summarised "their highly unusual interview" and their report helped provide the foundation for a case that became the probe headed by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Agents reportedly avoided interviewing Trump associates and subpoenaing documents to keep the investigation secret.

Trump has repeatedly slammed the probe as a witch hunt.

He has pleaded guilty to lying to officials, who he is now cooperating with. "Their report helped provide the foundation for a case that, a year ago Thursday, became the special counsel investigation".

The FBI codenamed their probe Crossfire Hurricane, a reference to lyrics in a Rolling Stones song. According to the story, what was then known as "Crossfire Hurricane" amongst the handful of agents involved, began months before election day.

In thousands of pages of interview transcripts with the participants of the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting shed new light on how eager Donald Trump Jr. and senior members of the Trump campaign were to obtain damaging information on Hillary Clinton - and how frustrated and angry they were that the material did not come to fruition.
