Wait, What… DOJ Has Possession of Joseph Mifsud Cell Phones (Blackberries)?…

Inside an otherwise innocuous court filing (full pdf below), General Mike Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, files a motion to compel (MTC) in an effort to gain discovery of the content from two cell phones belonging to Joseph Mifsud.   [Hat Tip Techno Fog]

Apparently, according to the information within the filing, the DOJ has somehow gained custody of two cell phones belonging to Mr. Mifsud:

(Source Link)

The filing notes that “western intelligence” likely tasked Mr. Mifsud against General Flynn as early as 2014 in order to set up “connections with certain Russians” for later use against him.  Essentially, an intelligence entrapment scheme.

Unfortunately the filing only identifies the cell phones along with the request for production of the content therein.  However, the fact the DOJ has two cell phones belonging to Joseph Mifsud opens up a whole bunch of questions:

#1)  How did the US Dept of Justice gain custody of Mr. Mifsud’s cell phones?

#2) Were these Blackberry cell phones issued by U.S. intelligence? (unknown agency)

#3) Why has the U.S. DOJ taken custody of those cell phones?

#4) If #2 is yes, wouldn’t that automatically destroy the “Mifsud as a Russian intelligence asset” narrative?

#5) [Less important] How the heck did Sidney Powell find out about them?

Something is certainly happening here. The cell phone models are from 2011 and 2014.

With U.S. Attorney John Durham and U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr traveling to Italy to listen to the taped deposition of Joseph Mifsud last month….. and now the discovery that the DOJ has his cell phones from a period of keen interest in the Russia collusion-conspiracy framework….  It would appear Mr. Mifsud might just be the Maltese Fulcrum.

In response to the defense Motion to Compel, the U.S. Dept of Justice told Ms. Powell: “if they determine the information is discoverable or relevant to sentencing” they will produce them.

      I think DOJ has had them. Misfud probably turned them over to Italian officials when he recorded his statement and asked for protection. My guess is the phones got the Hillary treatment and/or got lost. They’ll never see the light of day if Misfud is who he says he is. Although FBI could have put whatever they want on them to point toward Russia.

      If Barr had just come into possession of them I doubt Ms Powell would know that yet.

        Why wouldn’t Mueller’s sham of an investigation have given them the same treatment he gave the untecovered Strozk/Page texts then? If Misfud is and has been afraid for his safety, his phone(s) could have been leverage for him. I’m of the mind that he’s the source of the phones that he’s given to the Barr DOJ. If so, that tells you a little bit of what thought about Sessions/Rosenstein DOJ.

      • Cocfefe999, you ask, “Where are you seeing that different wording?”, with regards to the sentence in the filing that states, “If we [the prosecutors] determine that they contain information that is discoverable or that is relevant to sentencing, we will produce them to you.”

        The United States Government has just ADMITTED that they actually possess the telephones. The Government is NOT arguing about whether they do or do not have the phones, or whether the phones even exist. They admit to having possession of the phones, and the only thing they are arguing about is whether they should or should not have to turn them over to General Flynn.

        This is a very unusual thing for the Government to state. The expected position would be for the Government to deny that the phones exist. This would seem to indicate that the Government knows, that Sidney Powell KNOWS, that the phones are there, and it’s pointless to pretend that they don’t have the phones.

    People identified in the IG report are given an opportunity to review the report prior to release. Since the IG is looking at FISA abuse and likely the monitoring of US persons, it seems plausible that Flynn appears in the IG Report, that the IG discloses DOJ possession of the phones, and Flynn/lawyer found out in their review.

    Also possible this info was leaked surreptitiously to Flynn’s lawyers, but that’s risky whereas the IG Report seems more plausible to me.

      I do hope that everything eventually comes out so powerfully indisputably damning to the Derp State that many if not all the surviving victims of Obama and friends are exonerated and made whole.

          • Kent– Did you actually read the book? Brigadier General Robert Spalding repeatedly states that the book is written as ‘a wake-up call’, ‘an alert’, a ‘call to arms’. Multiple times the author cites a need for Americans to become aware of the China problem, but there isn’t a single instance where Brigadier General Spalding concedes defeat, and that there isn’t time to still remedy the situation.

            It’s disingenuous of you to assert otherwise; you ask, “How do we back the Chinese and their corruptive(sic) influences out of our economy?”. The book is very current, copyrighted in 2019, but time is required to write a book and get that book published. Brigadier General Spalding wasn’t able to see the progress, especially the exfiltration of U.S. dollars from China, that President Trump has accomplished in the previous 18 months. As more decoupling from China continues to progress, PDJT is doing the very thing that the Brigadier General stresses need to be done.

            Your sense of defeat is misplaced and unwarranted.

    I’m guessing that the following situations apply:

    – If the DoJ has the phones, then how did Powell know?
    – If Powell knows, then she likely knows why they were used and what numbers and messages might be on them.
    – If Powell doesn’t know, this is a World Series of Poker Final Table, Heads-Up, All In Bluff
    – The Small Group in the DOJ is “running the numbers” now to see if they can get away with lying about the phones.
    – At some point, this thick headed judge has to have an “Aha” moment and see this for what it is. I can’t believe a person can make it to a Federal Judgeship and be as stupid/clueless as this one appears to be.
