Rep Devin Nunes joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday for an interview in which he said that Alexander Downer lied about the start of the Russian collusion investigation.
According to the FBI and DOJ as well as Downer, the investigation began July 31st, 2017, but evidence in the public record shows it began no later than April of 2016, meaning that Papadopoulos could not have possibly been the reason for opening the investigation. Seems like the Deep State has a whole lot of lying going on. Their problem is no one tried to cover their tracks because no one believed Trump could win.
Here is a part of that interview:
Rep. Devin Nunes: We know that the counterintelligence investigation was opened in July. Well, that’s fine so if that’s all the information you have then why are there all of these strange activities leading up to late July, particularly in the spring?
Maria Bartiromo: I’m trying to understand this because you broke the news on this program more than a month ago that you’ve looked for reasons and catalysts to understand how an investigation was opened and launched into the Trump campaign. And you said to us, based on the Five Eyes Intelligence of all of our partners across the world, that there was NO intelligence that you could find that launched that investigation…
Rep. Devin Nunes: … There’s new information this week that the media is ignoring. So The New York Times has reported in the past that the Australian ambassador, the Australian High Commissioner, is the one that brought this to the attention of the United States government. Now typically that would have gone through FBI channels, it would have gone through the embassy in London, it would have come across officially. It would have come across the pond officially. And it didn’t. And that’s what we would like to have seen. Now, this week we now know that Mr. Downer, the former Australian ambassador, high commissioner in London, said that he had given the information to the Australian ambassador in the US. Well, now we know that that’s not true. So, Mr. Downer now has claimed that in an Australian newspaper. But we now know from sources that have now spoken to different media outlets that the Australians are denying that that’s how this happened. The Australian ambassador in the United States had nothing to do with this…
Now that we know everyone is lying about the start of the investigation, we need tp start impeaching every member of the Deep State that is blocking or selectively redacting the information that is reaching congressional investigators. Once we have the truth, we can sic the federal prosecutors on them and get them off the street.
