Look, there’s way to spin the latest season of “Trump Administration Shenanigans” so let’s get straight to it: Donald Trump asked Scott Morrison to help dig up dirt on Robert Mueller’s investigation into the US Cheeto-in-Chief’s Russia ties.
According to a bombshell report by The New York Times, Trump phoned up Scotty and “pushed” our PM to call up US Attorney General William Barr to help gather information for a Justice Department investigation into the origins of Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation in hopes of discrediting it.
It is reported that the White House restricted access to transcript of Trump’s and Scotty’s call, which took place “weeks” after the US Cheeto-in-Chief hit up Ukraine to dig up dirt on Joe Biden’s son, the fallout of which subsequently kicked off an impeachment probe.
To sum up, Trump wants to dig up dirt on his enemies because he’s a vindictive POS and is leaning on America’s closest allies to further his own interests, and now Scott Morrison is part of whatever this whole mess is.
This latest development brings everything back in an ironic full circle as Australia played a pivotal role in the eventual kicking off of Robert Mueller’s investigation into Trump’s Russia ties.
It all kicked off in 2016 at a London pub when Trump lackey George Papadopoulos drunkenly spilled the beans to Alexander Downer about having Russian dirt on Hilary Clinton.
Downer later alerted the FBI about this, which kicked off an investigation into Trump’s shady dealings and a whirlwind of scandalous events that would eventually lead to the appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel.
So in essence, Trump is basically asking Australia to investigate itself because everything around him is slowly caving in and he’s getting desperate.
There may be bombshells dropping from Trump’s side but there’s no shortage of explosive reveals from Australia’s side either.
In response to this latest orange-coloured bombshell from the NYT, a Federal Government spokesperson has confirmed that Trump and ol’ mate Scotty did indeed have a chat over the phone about investigating Robert Mueller’s investigation:
“The Australian Government has always been ready to assist and cooperate with efforts that help shed further light on the matters under investigation.
“The PM confirmed this readiness once again in conversation with the President.”
According to the ABC, Australia and the US had communications about assisting the US Government’s probe into the origins of Robert Mueller’s investigation in the form of a letter dated May 28, 2019, in which Australia’s ambassador to the US, Joe Hockey, wrote to Barr confirming Australia’s assistance in the matter.
In conclusion, it seems like Scott Morrison and Australia is officially embroiled in whatever fustercluck scandal is going on with Donald Trump and America right now.
Stay tuned folks because at the way this latest season of “Trump Administration Shenanigans” is unfolding, the next season is going to be even more ridiculous.
