(Gateway Pundit) – An FBI investigation dubbed “Crossfire Hurricane” was opened into Trump’s campaign 100 days before the Presidential election.
Five agents, including Peter Strzok traveled to London in the summer of 2016 to interview with a diplomat after Papadopoulos drunkenly claimed to Australian Ambassador Alexander Downer he knew who had Hillary’s emails, reports the NY Times.
What the fake news media doesn’t want to report on is the fact that the FBI was also approached by Christopher Steele on July 5th, 2016 to discuss memos he penned on Trump’s so-called Russian connections which he eventually compiled into a 35-page dossier.
Four men from Trump’s team were under investigation by the FBI because of their so-called obvious ties to Russia. General Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, current and former officials said.
The FBI is now admitting to having obtained Trump’s campaign phone records through secret subpoenas and even admitted to spying on Trump’s camp with an informant.
The New York Times reported:
Within hours of opening an investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia in the summer of 2016, the F.B.I. dispatched a pair of agents to London on a mission so secretive that all but a handful of officials were kept in the dark.
Their assignment, which has not been previously reported, was to meet the Australian ambassador, who had evidence that one of Donald J. Trump’s advisers knew in advance about Russian election meddling. After tense deliberations between Washington and Canberra, top Australian officials broke with diplomatic protocol and allowed the ambassador, Alexander Downer, to sit for an F.B.I. interview to describe his meeting with the campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos.
The agents summarized their highly unusual interview and sent word to Washington on Aug. 2, 2016, two days after the investigation was opened. Their report helped provide the foundation for a case that, a year ago Thursday, became the special counsel investigation. But at the time, a small group of F.B.I. officials knew it by its code name: Crossfire Hurricane.
The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters — a secret type of subpoena — officials said. And at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said. That has become a politically contentious point, with Mr. Trump’s allies questioning whether the F.B.I. was spying on the Trump campaign or trying to entrap campaign officials.
The FBI has no choice but to admit they spied on Trump’s campaign.
The American public is angry and demanding answers; we deserve to know the truth about Obama’s corrupt FBI and DOJ.
CONFIRMED: The Obama intelligence apparatus was spying on the Trump campaign. FBI seems to have obtained @RealDonaldTrump campaign phone records and had a spy on the Trump campaign! https://t.co/SriAG8ZFty

This is amazing…
Amazing. FBI tells me it will not provide comment or guidance on some of the claims made in this NYT article which appears to be based on comment and guidance from the FBI. https://t.co/8SN96EbBDE
