Australian diplomat whose tip prompted FBI's Russia-probe has tie to Clintons

Australian diplomat whose tip prompted FBI's Russia-probe has tie to Clintons | 05 March 2018 | The Australian diplomat whose tip in 2016 prompted the Russia-Trump investigation previously arranged one of the largest foreign donations to Bill and Hillary Clinton's charitable efforts, documents show. Former Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer's role in securing $25 million in aid from his country to help the Clinton Foundation 'fight AIDS' is chronicled in decade-old government memos archived on the Australian foreign ministry’s website...Downer, now Australia'’s ambassador to London, provided the account of a conversation with Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos at a London bar in 2016 that became the official reason the FBI opened the Russia counterintelligence probe. But lawmakers say the FBI didn't tell Congress about Downer’s prior connection to the Clinton Foundation.
