- United States. From 'Russiagate' to 'Ukrainegate' and now to 'Australiagate'
After months of speculation and rumors, it turns out that the FBI's investigation into the investigations that the agency carried out about the links between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia was fully justified. The official report of the Chief Inspector of the Department of Justice, published today, throws another jug of cold water on conspiracy theories - frequently accompanied by the #QAnon tag on social networks - that insisted that the FBI invented the links between the team of the President and Moscow in order to have an excuse with which to spy on his campaign and pass on information to Hillary Clinton's.
The document focuses on two people from the president's campaign, Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, who not only had contacts with the Russian Government, but even boasted about them (Papadopoulos even told Australia's ambassador to Britain, Alexander Downer , which in turn was the one who alerted the US authorities). What the text does state is that the FBI exaggerated the suspicions against Carter in order to monitor his movements. Even so, it is not a serious infraction.
The director of the FBI - an agency that has suffered a 'purge' in his direction to make it more prone to Donald Trump - Christopher Wray, has described the document as " constructive criticism that will help us to be a more efficient organization."
