Giddy Up – Devin Nunes Questions Political Alignment of Joseph Mifsud…

This is interesting…. because it strikes at the heart of the CIA/FBI construct around George Papadopoulos.  The impetus for the early 2016 CIA/FBI investigation motive of George Papadopoulos surrounds Joseph Mifsud as a Russian asset; who supposedly told Papadopoulos that Russia had ‘dirt’ on Hillary Clinton.

Professor Mifsud being a Russian asset underpins all of their subsequent activity. If Mifsud is not a Russian intelligence asset, the FBI and CIA have a problem within their narrative.  If Mifsud is a Western asset, well, that proves Papadopouls was being set up.

(Fox News) House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is scrutinizing the findings in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report about Joseph Mifsud — the mysterious professor from Malta who helped ignite the Russia probe in 2016 – and wants to know exactly who he was working for when he spoke with former Trump adviser George Papadopoulos.

It has long been suggested that Mifsud was connected to Russian intelligence. But Nunes, in a Friday letter obtained by Fox News, questions that assumption, saying Mueller’s report “omits any mention of a wide range of contacts Mifsud had with Western political institutions and individuals.”

Mifsud is a crucial figure in the report: Mueller’s report states that Mifsud was the one who told Papadopoulos in April 2016 that the Russians had “dirt” in the form of emails that could damage Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

As the story goes, Papadopoulos then told Australian diplomat Alexander Downer about his conversations with Mifsud. Downer then informed U.S. officials, leading the FBI to open its investigation into whether Trump associates were coordinating with Russia during the 2016 election.

Nunes also is seeking information about the FBI’s contacts with Mifsud – asking how the bureau knew to question Papadopoulos specifically about Clinton’s emails if it hadn’t already spoken to Mifsud. The congressman said, “it’s still a mystery how the FBI knew to ask Papadopoulos specifically about Hillary Clinton’s emails…”

Nunes’ letter is addressed to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Central Intelligence Agency Director Gina Haspel, National Security Agency Director Paul Nakasone and FBI Director Chris Wray. It asks them to hand over all information they have on Mifsud by May 10.

In his letter, Nunes presents photographic evidence of Mifsud in close proximity to influential Western political and government officials.

“If Mifsud has extensive, suspicious contacts among Russian officials as portrayed in the special counsel’s report, then an incredibly wide range of Western institutions and individuals may have been compromised by him, including our own State Department,” Nunes wrote.  (read more)

    Who is Azra Turk?
    and So Who Was ‘Azra Turk’ Working For?

    As I said Papadop must sit down with a sketch artist skilled in drawing faces and get a sketch of her

    “The FBI obtained little useful information from the operation, The Times reported.

    Turk has not responded to emails seeking comment. A phone number she used during her interactions with Papadopoulos was disconnected after The Daily Caller News Foundation began contacting her in March 2018.

    A Facebook account belonging to an Azra Turk who claims to live in Los Angeles has been active since at least 2014. A profile photo on the account is of a blonde woman whose face is obscured. When shown the Facebook account, Papadopoulos said it is possible the photo is of the woman he met in London.

          I’m too lazy to look this up, but Sundance nailed this down at least 4 to 6 months ago. Not that Mifsud was at the same dinner, but that Gen. Flynn told the DIA he was going to Russia, was briefed by DIA before he went to Russia and was debriefed by the DIA when he came back.

          Jill Stein sat at the same table with Gen. Flynn and Pres. Putin. She’s not in deep s**t–she’s a leftie. It didn’t even come up in her campaign in 2016.

          Gen. Flynn is in trouble because of (1) his lobbying for Turkey and not doing the paperwork; and (2) his son didn’t do the paperwork either. Mueller should be twisting at the end of a rope.

          Maybe some Republican will do the right thing and ASK HIM when did you know there was no Russian-Trump conspiracy and WHY didn’t you tell the American people around Aug. 2, 2017 when Mueller testifies before the House or the Senate???

        El Foglio has an excellent article (April 18, 2019) on Mifsud and Link University. According to the article, Mifsud owns 35% of Link. The Founder of Link, Vincenzo Scotti, was a former Minister of the Interior.

        “One of the key turning points in the investigation happened in Italy. It is no coincidence that US Senator Lindsay Graham, one of Trump’s closest allies and one of the leading critics of Mueller’s investigation, has been visiting Rome over the last few days. ”

        “Mifsud is a central player in Russiagate. According to Mueller’s investigation, Mifsud is “The Professor” who informed Trump’s campaign manager at the time, George Papadopoulos, about the “thousands of emails” revealing dirt on Hillary Clinton that had come into Russian hands. This happened in April 2016, long before the Democrats discovered that their system had been hacked. Mifsud introduced Papadopoulos to figures close to Vladimir Putin, such as Ivan Timofeev, a member of the Russian International Affairs Council (a think tank founded by the Kremlin). Link Campus, the university founded by former Italian Minister of Home Affairs Vincenzo Scotti is a crucial place in this spy story, which resembles a Le Carré novel.”

        Nobody knows where Mifsud currently is, and many suspect he is no longer alive. The last time anyone saw him was last May, according to the Associated Press, which was sent a photo of Mifsud by his lawyers. There has been no news since. The Italian government should probably be more transparent about an international spy story that has disrupted an allied country such as the US. Clarification should come from Defence Minister Elisabetta Trenta and Deputy Foreign Minister Emanuela Del Re, who come from Link Campus. Ever since the scandal broke out and Mifsud disappeared, all roads lead to the university in Rome. Whoever wants to solve the Russiagate enigma – whether they believe that Mifsud plotted with the Russians to help Trump or that he conspired with Western intelligence services to weaken Trump – should look for evidence at Link Campus, the small university presided over by Vincenzo Scotti.

    Mifsud might be one of those guys described in CIA slang as “triple hatters.” They can work with almost any country’s spy agencies at different times. Sometimes they are tolerated by both sides because of their amphibian natures. These free lance operatives have credentials with both sides, can be used as go-betweens in secret negotiations between governments (probably during the Cuban Missile crisis of 1962), and in hostage exchanges, etc.

    What Mueller leaves out is everyone in Western intelligence knew about Mifsud all along if he was working for Moscow from time-to-time (or Tel Aviv or Beijing). Apparently Mifsud went back-and-forth to Moscow with complete ease, so all they had to do is ask him to go to Moscow on some errand. After his return, they ask Mifsud to make contact with hapless Georgie and just dirty him up with Russia. That incriminates Mifsud and Papadopoulos. Mifsud disappeared himself when things went sideways since the scheme was both stupid and incompetently executed. His ability to vanish like that makes the analysis of him being a free lance operative with some skills stronger.

    What is most interesting about this scenario is that Putin might just know what the NATO boys were up to, and maybe he was helping out, too. Could work either way.

    Some Mifsud trivia–If you stick it out through the ending credits of “U-571,” the WWII submarine flick, you will see that name come up a few times since the movie was partly filmed on Malta. Must be like Smith or Brown in this country.

Although Mifsud has traveled many times to Russia and has contacts with Russian academics, his closest public ties are to Western governments, politicians, and institutions, including the CIA, FBI and British intelligence services. One of Mifsud’s jobs has been to train diplomats, police officers, and intelligence officers at schools in London and Rome, where he lived and worked over the last dozen years.”

    Can the sleuth treepers please assist with this ? that has been bothering me re the narrative of the Russians stealing Hillary’s emails? The Russian hoax premise is based on Hillary’s stolen emails and who said what, when. If you recall, WikiLeaks only released the 30k odd emails, not all 63+. It’s a known fact that numerous folks were coping all her emails but those were never published.
    When Hillary had to hand over the emails she had her lawyer (David Kendall) go thru and bleach bit the ones she didn’t want anyone to see. How could anyone steal these limited emails when they were on a hard drive or perhaps a new server? It seems the deep state needed a narrative and that was it – as these emails would have been released anyway under the FOIA act.
    So if one takes away the Russian narrative, the Russian collusion is baseless. In other words, were these limited emails deliberately hacked or handed over to Wikileaks?

      Russians might have been in the DNC in 2015, pilfering the Debbie Wasserman Schultz letter about Loretta Lynch telling Hillary aide Amanda Renteria that the Hillary email investigation would not go too deep. That got them scrambling and they came up with this stupid scheme to divert attention to Russia and Trump, frame Assange as a Russian asset and not a journalist, and cover up the operation all at the same time. The only reason the public doesn’t see the wheels come off the thing is their dependence on the MSM to tell them what reality is.

    “If Mifsud is not a Russian intelligence asset, the FBI and CIA have a problem within their narrative. If Mifsud is a Western asset, well, that proves Papadopouls was being set up.

    Papa-D was set up either way. If Mifsud was a Russian mole, which I think he was, he was providing the bait for western intel to start or ENHANCE an already begun Russian “poison pill” operation possibly initiated via phony, Russian-provided Five Eyes “incriminating” traffic in 2015, a poison pill that has obviously been -HUGELY- successful in the disruption it has sewn. The Russians simply provided all of the ammo needed for a known to them to be massively corrupt and “turnkey police state” US deep state to do its thing.

    Il Foglio – 2018-04-26 – by Luciano Capone
    https://www.ilfoglio.it/esteri/2019/04/26/news/lavvocato-di-mifsud-ci-spiega-cosa-centra-la-link-con-il-russiagate-251507/
    [translation aided by Google Translate]

    Mifsud’s lawyer explains to us what LINK has to do with Russiagate
    Confirmation (with coverage) of the meeting with Papadopoulos in the Roman university. The lawyer of [the] Prof[essor who] disappeared into thin air.

    [PHOTO] Joseph Mifsud, the Maltese lecturer who, according to prosecutor Mueller’s investigation, played a key role in Russiagate.

    Rome. “Mifsud is not a Russian spy, he is a victim. He hid and is silent because under threat. He’s still in danger. ” And then: “It is Vincenzo Scotti who asked him to manage the dinner with Papadopoulos. But he never talked about Clinton’s emails “.
    And again: “His friends at Link Campus organized him a place outside Rome to hide in November / December 2017 and have been in contact with him at least until January …

    #1: Mifsud is not a Russian spy.
    #2: HE NEVER TALKED ABOUT CLINTON’S EMAILS !
    #3: Vincenzo Scotti asked Mifsud to arrange the dinner with Papadopoulos

    Vincenzo Scotti is a former Minster of the Interior of Italy (hence in charge of a.o. the Italian police & intelligence services), and co-owner of LINK university (together with Prof. Mifsud, who is also a professor there and later (also) at Sterling University (UK)).

      Mifsud didn’t have any such information. There was speculation around that time (April 2016) that foreign agents may have had compromised her server to take those emails.

      See my post above (when it comes out of moderation): Mifsud’s lawyer denies that he even spoke about any emails.

      Possibly Mifsud’s purpose (whether he knew it or not) was to plant the seed that the Russians had some or all of Secretary Clinton’s 33,000 deleted emails (or other, unproduced emails that passed through her unsecured server). I suspect the Obama WH/ Clinton Snydicate/DNC/Progressive movement/DonorClass colossus was VERY concerned about who might have those. That concern predates the DNC and Podesta document thefts (whether via downloading, phishing, “hacking” or otherwise).

    Sounds to me like Nunes is indirectly trying to shine light on the five eyes arrangement used to spy on citizens of each country, then trade that information. Part of draining the swamp. Clean up that aspect, if possible. Different aspects of his approach center around the common theme of government agencies, in multiple countries, illegally spying on citizens of their own country.

    I had to read before that Papadopoulos was sent to this Paris Paris conference by the Clinton state department. How odd that almost all of these Trump campaign figures who were targeted actually have prior connections with Clinton, Obama, FBI or CIA: Paige, Papadopoulos, Manafort, Michael Cohen and even Flynn.
    So, did Hillary Clinton send Papadopoulos to represent the state department at Union school in 2011?

    This report says liberal bias in US Intel organizations is rife and could be damaging intel reports.

    I think America has won big time by electing Trump and letting all of bias show. I do feel bad for McCabe’s family and other families who will suffer when perps quilty of misuse and coverup are finally brought to justice.
    But those folks took it upon themselves to try to defraud Trump supported of meaningful votes.
    They must be held accountable.

    Hope Potus sees this. Must be done.

    • In mindset, the CIA departed Americans shores decades ago. It’s better I think to say they’re internationalists who struck more deep-rooted relationships stateside with Clintonism which is now a quarter-century old.

    I made this point last night but did not do a good enough job explaining my theory. Here goes again. This is the initial reason I thought Mueller was questionable:

    Papadopoulus was approached at an airport and voluntarily went with team Mueller agents for a FBI interview. I can look up the date but is was sometime January 2017. He didn’t bring a lawyer.

    2 weeks later in February 2017 Mifsud was at a State Department conference in DC and was interviewed by FBI and released, He made clear at this meeting that his Papadopoulus meeting was inconsequential.

    Shortly thereafter Papadopoulus was interviewed by FBI again in a more aggressive tone. FBI went over his story about the date of meeting Mifsud. After 12 hours they got him to change the date to correspond to a date after him informally joining Trump campaign. They were also mad because he hid his Facebook history. One of the reasons for the FBI agents aggressive tone was the FBI claim that they would have never let mifsud go if Papdopoulus had been truthful with them in his first interview WTF?

    BTW this was one of the two FBI agents that were married during Mueller probe and made extremely biased Trump comments on social media. Can’t recall the name but easy to look up.

    The point I didn’t make clear last night was why was either Papadopoulus or Mifsud released. One of these dudes was a Russian agent and the other a colluder or Mueller would have never been in their lives. They were credited with starting the Russian scandal. One of them had to be a major criminal. and they would have us believe it was the mysterious Malta professor. So why did they turn him loose?

    Final aside, I bet the $10,000 Papadopoulus left in Greece has a receipt at FBI someplace. Why was Mueller so anxious to retrieve that money? Nunes should request any internal accounting for these dollars.

    These above 2 incidents have always made me question Mueller’s motivation.
