WASHINGTON — 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 name, a reference to the Rolling Stones lyric “I was born in a crossfire hurricane,” was an apt prediction of a political storm that continues to tear shingles off the bureau. Days after they closed their investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, agents began scrutinizing the campaign of her Republican rival. The two cases have become inextricably linked in one of the most consequential periods in the history of the F.B.I.
Wikipedia has it too, never really thought about the name but clearly Sean & Donald think of it constantly.

What's scary is they have Bill Barr and a conservative SCOTUS majority. It breaks my heart people didn't get out and vote in 2016, but the bottom line is everyone who's commented said the investigation was appropriate. Once again the GOP is trying a BENGHAZI! and gosh I hope people are sick of that and remember for next year's election.
This isn't official so link may go down but this is the full episode from last night, only made it to 3:26 with the graphic "trouble for COMEY?" and the crawl "AG BARR ASSIGNS U.S. ATTORNEY JOHN DURHAM TO INVESTIGATE THE ORIGINS OF THE RUSSIA PROBE"
