BREAKING: Aussie Downer who Set Up Papadopoulos Disputes Claims He Was Part of Plot Against Trump

Alexander Downer, the former Australian Ambassador, was reportedly interviewed in London a month ago by AG Barr’s US Attorney John Durham.

In a recent interview in Australia Downer refused to give details about that interview.

In an interview in Australia Downer says he ‘plays for team Australia’ – the interviewer on Australia TV who admittedly worked for Downer in the past, bashed George Papadopoulos and President Trump as Downer laughed in agreement – 
According to reports at The Washington Examiner has more on Downer’s meeting with John Durham.
While in London, Durham viewed a confidential cable Downer sent to Australia’s capital Canberra in May 2016 after speaking with Papadopoulos. He also interviewed another Australian diplomat in London, Erika Thompson, who arranged and attended Downer’s meeting with Papadopoulos.
The Justice Department declined to comment following a request for confirmation from the Washington Examiner.
Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty in October 2017 to making false statements to the FBI about his contacts with Russians and served 12 days in prison late last year, claims the man who informed him that the Russians had “dirt” on Clinton in the form of “thousands” of Clinton’s emails was Maltese academic Joseph Mifsud. Mifsud denied to the FBI he knew or mentioned anything about emails.
Durham’s team is also looking into Mifsud, who has not made a public appearance since 2017. Barr and Durham recently flew to Rome to meet with Italian intelligence to obtain government information on Mifsud and listen to a secret recording of the elusive academic.
Mueller said in his Russia investigation report that Mifsud may have ties to Russian intelligence, but Papadopoulos, Republican allies of Trump, and Stephan Roh, a lawyer who claims to represent Mifsud, all believe he was actually cooperating with Western intelligence services in the U.S., United Kingdom, Italy, and Australia. Papadopoulos has said Downer was working with Mifsud in an effort to undermine Trump’s campaign. The Australian government and Downer have denied this accusation.
“This sort of idea that there is a kind of a ASIS-ASIO-MI6-MI5-FBI-CIA-Ukrainian government conspiracy to bring down the Trump administration, that this is treason, that I should be in Guantanamo Bay … I mean, it’s a little bit sad that people take that kind of thought seriously,” Downer said earlier this year.
