  • FBI's Trump Investigation Codenamed 'CROSSFIRE HURRICANE'

On his radio show Wednesday night, LevinTV host Mark Levin discussed new revelations about a "secret cabal" of Federal Bureau of Investigation agents that began surveillance of President Trump and his campaign over three months before the November 2016 election.

The paper had previously reported that in May 2016, Downer had a drink in London with Trump's then foreign policy adviser, George Papadopoulos, who allegedly told Downer Russia had dirt on Hillary Clinton.

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 United States election.

"Within hours of opening an investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation in the summer of 2016, the FBI dispatched a pair of agents to London on a mission so secretive that all but a handful of officials were kept in the dark", the New York Times reported on Wednesday.

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

The investigation added to the political firestorm started earlier that year by the agency's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server, which has been credited with pushing Trump toward electoral victory.

'Their assignment, which has not been previously reported, was to meet the Australian ambassador, who had evidence that one of Donald J. Trump's advisers knew in advance about Russian election meddling. 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.

"Crossfire Hurricane", a reference to a Rolling Stones lyrics, continued in secret as Trump publicly railed against the investigation, calling it a "witch hunt".

He is co-operating with Mr 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.
