Trump Pushed Australian Prime Minister to Help Investigate Mueller Inquiry's Origins
It's deja vu all over again!
According to The New York Times:
President Trump pushed the Australian prime minister during a recent telephone call to help Attorney General William P. Barr gather information for a Justice Department inquiry that Mr. Trump hopes will discredit the Mueller investigation, according to two American officials with knowledge of the call.
This is awfully similar to the "favor" that Trump recently asked Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky.
Instead this time around, Trump has asked Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, to help Attorney General, William Barr, gather information that could discredit the Mueller investigation.
President Trump initiated the discussion in recent weeks with Mr. Morrison explicitly for the purpose of requesting Australia’s help in the Justice Department review of the Russia investigation
It's important to recall how the Mueller investigation started. It began after Australian officials told the FBI that the Russian government had made offers to the Trump campaign about releasing political damaging information about Hillary Clinton.
And once again, The White House has restricted access to this call's transcripts. Let's be clear - this type of restriction is unusual. It was unusual for The White House to restrict access to the Ukrainian call transcripts and it is unusual again for the White House to restrict access to this call.
So, why is this happening?
It's because the administration knows that the President should not be asking foreign governments to interfere in our own.
