Democrats and the Fake News Media are in a panic.
Their impeachment strategy is already starting to backfire.
And now William Barr held one meeting that just put Hillary Clinton on the hot seat.
The Fake News Media led by The New York Times is trying to manufacture an impeachment-worthy scandal out of Donald Trump’s phone calls to foreign leaders.
The latest example is the so-called “New York Times bombshell” that Donald Trump asked Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison to assist with Attorney General William Barr’s investigation into the 2016 election.
Australian diplomat Alexander Downer helped kick off the Russia Collusion Hoax when he met with Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos in London.
The New York Times reports:
As part of his efforts, Mr. Barr in recent months has asked the president to facilitate communications with foreign officials and has made at least one trip to Italy to secure cooperation, according to a department official. The inquiry is examining American intelligence and law enforcement activity around the Trump campaign and whether it was legal.
Mr. Trump initiated the discussion with Mr. Morrison in recent weeks explicitly for the purpose of requesting Australia’s help in the review, according to the two people with knowledge of the discussion.
In making the request — one of many at Mr. Barr’s behest — Mr. Trump was in effect asking the Australian government to investigate itself. F.B.I. investigators began examining Trump ties to Russia’s 2016 election interference after Australian officials reported that Russian intermediaries had made overtures to Trump advisers about releasing information that would damage Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
The Fake News Media took this as another example of Trump pressuring foreign leaders to advance his personal, political agenda.
This was a lie.
William Barr was conducting a legitimate, government-authorized investigation and it was perfectly appropriate for the President to ask for Australia’s help.
What the Fake News Media is worried about is the fact that Downer was a Clinton Foundation donor.
So they’ve invented this Trump scandal because the growing evidence is the Papadopoulos meeting was a set up.
