Trump points the finger at the UK and Australia in his document declassification

Some of the formatting I cannot change whatever I do.

Is there ANOTHER reason why Theresa May resigned?

A few days ago I came across the following article in Zero Hedge but didn't not pay too much attention.

Trump Targets UK, Australia And Ukraine Over 'Greatest Hoax In The History Of Our Country' 

26 May, 2019

President Trump on Friday said that he wants Attorney General William Barr to investigate the UK, Australia and Ukraine for their roles in the 'greatest hoax in the history of our country.'
Speaking with reporters at the White House on Friday before his trip to Japan, Trump discussed his decision this week to issue a sweeping declassification order - leaving it in the hands of Barr to determine exactly what happened to Trump and his campaign before and after the 2016 US election. 
"For over a year, people have asked me to declassify. What I've done is declassified everything," said Trump, adding "He can look and I hope he looks at the UK and I hope he looks at Australia and I hope he looks at Ukraine." 
"It's the greatest hoax probably in the history of our country and somebody has to get to the bottom of it. We'll see. For a long period of time, they wanted me to declassify and I did."

"This is about finding out what happened," said Trump. "What happened and when did it happen, because this was an attempted takedown of the president of the United States, and we have to find out why."
"We're exposing everything. We're being a word that you like, transparent. We're being, ultimately we're being transparent. That's what it's about. Again, this should never ever happen in our country again."
After the Mueller report made clear that Trump and his campaign had in no way conspired with Russia during hte 2016 election, Democrats immediately pivoted to whether Trump obstructed the investigation. Trump and his supporters, however, immediately pivoted to the conduct of the US intelligence community, including the involvement of foreign actors and possibly their governments. 
According to a report last week, the discredited "Steele Dossier" - assembled by former MI6 spy Christopher Steele - was referred to as "crown material" in an email exchange suggesting that former FBI Director James Comey insisted that CIA Director John Brennan pushed for the inclusion of the dossier in the intelligence community assessment (ICA) on Russian interference. 
Moreover, much of "Operation Crossfire Hurricane" - the FBI's official investigation into the Trump campaign - occurred on UK soil, which is perhaps why the New York Times reported last September that the UK begged Trump not to declassify 'Russiagate' documents 'without redaction.'  
Shortly after he announced his involvement with the Trump campaign, aide George Papadopoulos was lured to London in March, 2016, where Maltese professor and self-described Clinton foundation member Joseph Mifsud fed him the rumor that Russia had damaging information on Hillary Clinton. It was later at a London bar that Papadopoulos would drunkenly pass the rumor to Australian diplomat Alexander Downer (who FBI agent Peter Strzok flew to London to meet with the day after Crossfire Hurricane was launched).

Two weeks laterPapadopoulos would be bilked for information by Australian diplomat (another Clinton ally) Alexander Downer at a London bar, who relayed the Russia rumor to Australian authorities, which alerted the FBI (as the story goes), which 'officially' kicked off the US intelligence investigation. 
We have now pinned Peter Strzok’s boss, Bill Priestap, in London the week of May 6th, 2016 and on the 9th. The day before Alexander Downer was sent to spy on me and record our meeting. Congress must release the transcripts and embarrass the deep state.
As for Ukraine, a Ukrainian court ruled in December that the country meddled in the US election when they revealed details of suspected illegal payments to former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort. 
In 2016, while Mr. Manafort was chairman of the Trump campaign, anti-corruption prosecutors in Ukraine disclosed that a pro-Russian political party had earmarked payments for Mr. Manafort from an illegal slush fund. Mr. Manafort resigned from the campaign a week later. -New York Times
Last week, President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani met with a former Ukrainian diplomat, Andril Telizhenko, who has previously suggested that the DNC worked with the Kiev government in 2016 to dig up 'dirt' on then-candidate Donald Trump. Giuliani told the Washington Post in a Friday interview that Telizhenko "was in Washington and he came up to New York, and we spent most of the afternoon together," adding "When I have something to say, I'll say it." 
This comes on the heels of Giuliani canceling a trip to Ukraine to meet with President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky to discuss the Manafort situation. 
According to The Hill's John Solomon, 
A former DNC operative steeped in Trump-Russia research approached the Ukrainian government looking for 'dirt' on then-candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 US election, citing written answers to questions submitted to Ambassador Valeriy Chaly's office. 

Chaly confirmed that DNC insider of Ukrainian heritage, Alexandra Chalupa, approached Ukraine seeking information on Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's dealings inside the country, in the hopes of exposing them to Congress.
Chalupa, who told Politico in 2017 that she had "developed a network of sources in Kiev and Washington, including investigative journalists, government officials and private intelligence operatives," said she "occasionally shared her findings with officials from the DNC and Clinton's campaign.

In short, a DNC operative of Ukrainian heritage, who shared information with the Clinton campaign and worked with a convicted terrorist to spread misinformation to undermine the legitimacy of the 2016 election, approached the government of Ukraine in the hopes of obtaining "dirt" that would hurt the Trump campaign.

And Trump wants AG Barr to look at it all. He'll be visiting the UK next month, meanwhile, where he can ask outgoing PM Theresa May, or the Queen, all about it. 


And the I came across this...

I found the idea quite interesting but blew hot and cold on it. Without looking any further it looked like something out of the QAnon stable.

Then I looked a  little further and found this.

  • Mr Trump declassified documents that prompted Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian collusion
  • It's believed these documents could relate to a meeting Mr Downer had with a Trump campaign official in 2016
  • The US Attorney-General has the power to reveal the documents publicly, drawing criticism he will present misleading information favouring Mr Trump
Donald Trump says he has declassified documents about the origin of the Mueller probe, which may include a conversation former foreign minister Alexander Downer had with an official from the US President's election campaign.
The US leader addressed reporters on the White House lawn, telling the press he authorised his Attorney-General William Barr to examine what could be "millions of pages".
"I hope he looks at Australia and I hope he looks at Ukraine," Mr Trump said.
"I hope he looks at everything, because there was a hoax that was perpetrated on our country.
"Somebody has to get to the bottom of it."
Mr Trump alleges Robert Mueller's probe into Russian collusion was payback by "sore losers" upset by his election win.


And from the Guardian...


This was the only item from the British media that I could find. There appears to be silence on this apart from the Guardian item that talks only about Australia.

But Trump pointed his finger also at Ukraine, but most importantly the United Kingdom.

I mean - where did the Steel Dossier come from.


For reliable voices I went to this interview with NSA whistleblower, Bill Binney who is impeccable and one of the most credible voices I know.


This video discussion goes into the Five Eyes - the five-headed hydra.

At the beginning they reference Alexander Downer, the Australian politician who is right there involved in the attempt to use fake intelligence (provided by the British) to bring down an elected president.

I had to go back to November last year to find a reference to the start of this affair.

This, from one of the great Russiagate propagandists...

President Donald Trump has said that he will declassify documents that will be “devastating” for Democrats if his political opponents “want to play tough” next year when they take control of the House of Representatives.
Once they take over the House in January, Democrats will be able to launch investigations into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and the president’s personal finances
“If they want to play tough, I will do it,” Mr Trump said. “They will see how devastating those pages are”.
“If they want to go and harass the president and the administration, I think that would [be] the best thing that could happen to me because I’m a counterpuncher and I will hit them so hard, they’ve never been hit like that,” Mr Trump said in an interview with the New York Post. “You know what? I think that will help my campaign. That will be the beginning of my campaign as president.”
In a recent interview with Chris Hedges Stephen Cohen talked about the origins of Russiagate and put the blame at the feet of the CIA's Brennan and the NSA's Clapper and opined that it was a mistake to go after James Comey of the FBI who was a minor player.

Last year Trump revoked the security of ex-CIA chief ( and prime mover in Russiagate), John Brennan.

Now we learn that although President Trump revoked his security clearance he still has it!

Former CIA Chief John Brennan still has his security clearance even though President Trump revoked it last summer.

Last July White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced at a press briefing that President Trump was reviewing the process to revoke the security clearances of several Deep State critics for abusing their post-government retention of security clearances by lying about Trump and Russia, as well as politicizing and monetizing their security clearances.

A month later Sarah Sanders announced at a presser that John Brennan’s security clearance had been revoked.
Historically, former heads of intelligence and law enforcement agencies have been allowed to retain access to classified information after their government service so that they can consult with their successors regarding matters about which they may have special insights and as a professional courtesy. Neither of these justifications supports Mr. Brennan’s continued access to classified information,” Sanders said.

According to a report out by the New York Times, John Brennan still has his security clearance because the White House never followed through with the complex bureaucratic work it would have taken to strip the clearance.

Attempts to revoked Brennan’s security clearance were “hampered by aides who slow-rolled the President and by Justice Department officials who fought Trump, warning he was jeopardizing national security,” reported the Times.
John Brennan regularly attacks President Trump on Twitter and in media appearances.

Brennan has accused Trump of committing treason and has warned him many times that Mueller would be taking him down.

Mueller finished his investigation without indicting President Trump and the tables are turning on the Deep State.

Brennan has gone into overdrive attacking President Trump since he issued a declassification order of Spygate documents.

Brennan still has his security clearance!” Tom Fitton said. “Trump should demand answers why.”

Fitton added, “John Brennan should have his security clearance revoked immediately.”

After all of the previous material it would be hard to say Trump is wrong.

This was a report someone did on You Tube just a few days ago.
