What Bill Barr Said About the Deep State That You Might Have Missed

Bill Barr revealed key information about the counterintelligence probe into the Trump campaign that the public did not know until now. In addition to Ukrainian and British operatives, Australian government officials have been outed as conspiring against the Trump campaign. The Daily Caller reports:

In a little-noticed exchange during his Senate hearing Wednesday, Attorney General William Barr made a surprising disclosure that could allow the public and press to obtain sensitive details about the origins of the Trump-Russia probe.

During a back-and-forth with Democratic Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, Barr identified Alexander Downer, a former Australian diplomat, as the FBI’s source for the information that sparked the bureau’s counterintelligence investigation into George Papadopoulos and other Trump campaign associates.

The federal government had not officially identified Downer as the source until Wednesday. His role in the investigation was publicly known, but only through press reports and his own statements to the media.

Federal agencies could deny requests for information about Downer and his role in the opening of “Crossfire Hurricane,” the FBI’s name for the counterintelligence investigation, without official confirmation from U.S. government officials.

Now it is clear that British, Ukrainian and Australian agents were involved in a counterintelligence operation against US citizens working on the opposition’s presidential campaign. Would Democrats stand for this if the roles were reversed? It’s time for those responsible to be punished and legitimacy be restored in the government.
