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.

          This is the most productive advice a lot of people need to hear. This needs to be investigated just as many other facts uncovered in this site by Sundance and others. Don’t just write Members of Congress and Senators. Go on Twitter and send Tweets to investigative reporters with large audiences. Spread the news far and wide. Maybe someone with a large following will pick up on it and cause a chain reaction.

      “Certain persons in the government only recently came into possession of these phones that had been given to Mifsud to use. Of course, pretty sure bad actors knew of them previously–certainly the operation that gave them to him!”

      And there’s the start of getting the most important question answered, who had the phones and when, but it has to go from “pretty sure” to “positive” on exactly who those bad actors were and when they took possession of them because those phones would have shown that he was working for Western intel, potentially kneecapping early on the Russian collusion’s “justification.” Of course, those bad actors probably WERE Western intel personnel.

          I called him “The Maltese Dummy” since Mifsud started his grooming of Papadopoulos too early in March 2016. Mifsud’s handlers should have told him to wait until Papadopoulos’ name was announced publicly as being on the list of “foreign policy advisors” to candidate Trump. By starting ahead of the public knowing, Mifsud revealed he had inside information about the Trump campaign.

      At first I thought perhaps FBI or CIA had been sitting on them & Barr learned of them in Italy. But, as she goes on to say they were known about by the people that gave Mifsud the phones, I am leaning towards Barr/Durham getting those phones in Italy. If they had been in govt possession all this time I think she would have worded 2nd sentence differently

      @Sundance: To answer your question: These Blackberry’s were issued by the CIA who is running the current coup against president Trump.
      These phones were programmed by CrowdStrike and Imran Awan remember him/them?

      Mifsud was not the only one having this CIA encrypted/programmed phone: Fiona Hill the CIA spy and ringleader of the spy ring in the white house has/had one. So did the other congress critters involved in the coup. All coup plotters used these phones.

      Even our twin of no name aka Lindsey Graham used/uses such a CrowdStrike phone.

      Since Mifsud is fearing for his life and hiding I would guess that he turned his phone back over to Coats/Sue Gordon/CIA or whoever is threatening his life or Durham and Barr picked up this goodie in the second visit to Italy.

    As to how ANYBODY found out,…..
    Who do we know who IS investigating, and in the past, while investigating Gov. employees use of cell phones, refused to take “no” for an answer,…THREE TIMES, and as a result uncovered a veritable GOLD MINE of information, from the page/stroxz texts?

    And, rather then keeping that info under wraps, released it?

    So, for that reason my GUESS would be that perhaps this starts with I.G.Horowitz.

    How Sidney found out?,…no idea.

    I also recall PapaD saying when he was talking to one of the IC operatives trying to entrap him (Misfud?) the operative kept holding out his cell phone, making PapaD suspect he was recording their conversation.

    But, he certainly wouldn’t have known the serial #. This is like a # of things that have ‘come out’ that Sundance has written about. Things he can NOT detirmine WHO authorised the release of, and that seem to help ‘our’side.

    IIRC, the Page/Stroxz texts is another.
    At one time, Sundance was speculating it MIGHT be someone in the DNI office, but that was months ago.

    Would be interesting to review all such info, to try to figure out who. But, perhaps not on a public forum, …

        One of the problems with the I.C., among many is there USED to be a ‘natural’ rivalry, a competition between the FBI and CIA.
        Along the lines of the Founders thoights, on dividing the government up, and establishing a dynamic tension, between the branches (to avoid tyranny) the rivalry actually was a GOOD thing.

        After 911, when they were ordered to ‘play nice together’,…well, they did!
        And, just look at the result!

        So, I don’t think we want one agency that operates both inside AND outside the U.S.

    I keep saying they have been spying on Trump for YEARS! Ever since the FBI wiretapped Trump Tower in 2013 to listen into the Russian who had rented a suite there. He was arrested for money laundering etc, but I believe they overheard Trump in 2013 saying he was running for President, and they then kept the wiretap going.

    The motion seeks to compel the government to “… produce evidence that has only recently come into its possession…” (Motion, Page 1, par. 1). Since the evidence has only recently come into the governments possession, I surmise that Barr and Durham recovered the phones when they met with the Italians this month and viewed the Misfud deposition. May be wrong, but seems probable. The next question is did the DOJ itself disclose the recent acquisitions to Sidney or did she learn of such through some other source, and if so, who. Interesting to say the least.

          Someone may have wanted to get this information to the public, but didn’t want to try leaking to the msm, and gave it to Sidney or Flynn to use in his defense? Trump could have given it to them or Rudy, if he knew about it. Would not be illegal for Trump to allow Flynn to use in his case.

        What if Barr is in a fight with Wray and the Flynn prosecution team about declassifying documents and information about the phones? If Barr takes his Brady obligations seriously, then he gives Powell the information about the phones and her motion to compel becomes the hammer for Barr to win the fight with Wray and the Flynn prosecution team. If that is what is happening, I am not sure what the ethics of this are.

        Try tracking the serial number along with the name of the person supplying the Blackberry. There is ALWAYS PAPER about this stuff inside the bureaucracies. These Blackberries are on a paper or electronic record somewhere. Someone/some entity has to pay the Blackberry bill. This is where CIA Proprietary Companies, and entities that launder CIA money (Soros organizations, various tax exempt foundations, etc.) might be the ones paying the Blackberry bills.

    Flynn was forced into retirement in 2014 due to a set up by Stephan Halper over a rumor he fabricated about Flynn and a Russian woman/agent. Flynn, in his book, maintains he was fired by Obama for taking a stand against radical Islamism. The thin skinned Obama with Brennan could have used Hapler involvement to justify. I’m not aware that Flynn ever was involved with a “Russian woman”.
    The counter intel ops started in 2014. Both Halper and Misfud were agency assets who worked together in these kinds of ops….with Brennan directing them. So it can be safely reasoned that Brennan set the op under orders from Obama. It’s a classic agency ops.
    Obama knew all of this. He had to approve the op since it was counter intel.

    Here’s the silver lining. Insiders are leaking to Sidney Powell…just as they are leaking to John Solomon. Thank God for the few patriots still left at these various agencies.

    Quick PS…this is exactly the same op going on with this so called whistleblower. My red flags went up when I read that the “WH” source was very upset about the call. That had to be a woman. No man would react so emotionally. Enter Soros puppet Fiona Hill. Then the Bolton news that has not been corroborated yet. I don’t doubt that Bolton is somehow involved given his Global size ego. But I’m going to wait since this would be the end of Bolton for any position ever again in any capacity with the gov and I don’t think he’s that stupid to burn all bridges.

    Something to consider when pondering why some evidence, i.e. cell phones or other I/T, still exists. When a conspiracy consists of so many rotten people (who are not imitate associates), hidden but known “Doomsday or Deadman Files” are created. That is the weak link in this entire rotten enterprise. The coup consists of essentially an ad hoc group of bad actors, who do not trust each other.

    If the President has a sizable, reliable DoJ and IC leadership core, this coup would have been smothered in the cradle. Tracking down hidden doomsday files would not be hard with this group of conspirators.

      Every phone call, block of data, and SMS creates a call detail record or CDR for billing (even if the user has an unlimited plan) the CDR includes the phone number (MDN) and the IMSI, and the IMEI (or the ability for a carrier to associate the IMEI). For law enforcement it’s a simple phone call to the carrier to get the info.

    Gen Flynn isn’t the only Trump related person that the DOJ and Intel spooks have been hiding exculpatory evidence from at every evil intended opportunity. They’ve been doing it to the President since before he was elected and are still doing it with relative ease by caterwauling the word “classified,” so the public can’t learn more about the truth. The intention is to maintain their political fantasy; not discover the truth. The corrupt spooks still in office are apparently preparing to hide as much inculpatory evidence against their former corrupt spook colleagues and as much exculpatory evidence as possible if it benefits POTUS from Horowitz’s IG Report.

    Nothing’s really changed except for the 2 recently added Rudy “associates” to the tally of the SDNY indicted while the Coup side remains at an unchanged and cozy zero. The corrupt spooks can now leak 1st, 2nd 3rd, 4th hand etc. classified info or make it up completely at will and with impunity but the public are still forbidden to learn all the facts.

    If the spooks manage to redact 10-20% of Horowitz’s semi-watered down report can P Trump still read it all or would the howls of Obstruction and interference in an Investigation emanate from every Dem blabbermouth and every corrupt and aligned media source. Every day another chip is hacked out of the foundation that bares the weight of the Constitutional Republic. How many more unopposed hacks will it take for the tumbling to begin in earnest is uncertain, but it’s getting closer to that turning point every day and those that can prevent it are powerless to stop it or not yet noticeably and seriously engaged. It’s only the greatest country ever created in the world. What’s the big deal?

    Can General Flynn be restored to his rightful place as national security advisor to the Trump administration? I hope there is a large book contract in his future as well, as I would pay good money to get the inside scoop of how this cabal of seditious snakes was disentangled and chopped into little pieces. If things keep moving in this direction I’m not going to need all that extra ammo; maybe we could have CTH short and long-range shooting contests! Not until we see some arrests and convictions.

    “If we (the prosecutors) determine that they contain information that is discoverable or that is relevant to sentencing, we will produce them to you.”

    So, our justice system is at the point that the prosecution can use information that was illegally obtained against a defendant, hide exculpatory evidence if it’s damaging to their case, and decides on it’s own what and when they will or will not produce, even though ordered by the court to expedite.

    No wonder the Feds rarely if ever lose a case, and when they do, Weissman gets to shrug it off and continue using his law license to persecute rather than prosecute.

      Excerpt
      SHE WAS BORN IN THE UK

      She had served in the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations in similar policy positions earlier. She had been affiliated with the center-left Brookings Institution, which is no Republican redoubt. She came from a leftwing part of northern England.

      She spent her entire academic time in the states in the faculty lounges of woke Harvard University. She also had an affiliation with Soros front group, the Eurasia Foundation, and Soros is very much at odds with Russia over precisely his NGO activity. So, it’s likely she never interacted with a conservative in her entire life.

      But someone, apparently one of the managerial generals of the Trump era, decided ideology didn’t matter. Hill was bright, she hated the Russians like he did, and he brought her onboard. Trump, in this lefty report, wouldn’t allow her in in his meetings with Putin out of fear she would leak.

      She came on in April 2017 and apparently left in July 2019, depending on the report, before President Trump’s Ukraine call was made. Here’s a report that claims she even got McMaster fired. I am not convinced that that report is even true, because why would a meeting with former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice be a firing offense?

      Rice is a Russia expert and Trump has had only warm words for her. But I get a funny feeling when I read all the leaks that have come out about her supposedly secret Schiff committee testimony which focuses primarily on all the things NSC chief John Bolton told her. If true, these things are embarrassing to him, which means a political cost to him, not to her.

    There are a couple of reporters in Italy doing a decent job in covering this story.

    “Lawyer Powell had already asked in September “any information, including records or 302s , about the presence and involvement of Joseph Mifsud in involving or reporting the presence of Mr. Flynn and Mifsud himself at the Russia Today dinner held in Moscow on 17 December 2015 ″. This is the dinner for the ten years of the magazine, during which Flynn met Russian President Putin. The photograph portraying them at the same table was fundamental to argue that the former general was a Russian agent and, therefore, to feed the narrative of the collusion between the Trump Campaign and Russia.

    But what are the documents called 302 ? These are reports in which FBI agents summarize the content of the talks they had with their informants and “non-primary agents”. Which would mean, if there were 302 reports with Mifsud of that dinner, that the FBI had questioned the Maltese professor of Link Campus since at least 2015 and, therefore, he already knew exactly then who he was, even before he met in Rome then advisor of the Trump Campaign George Papadopoulos (March 2016). From the request of the lawyer Powell we learn that Mifsud would also have been present at that dinner and, therefore, his role in the Russiagate would be backdated to December 2015 compared to the first meeting with Papadopoulos.

    The two phones used by Mifsud could contain evidence that exonerates Flynn, according to his lawyer, demonstrating that it was framed, or in any case “material relevant to the defense, with particular regard to the OCONUS lures ( Outside Contiguous US lures , ed) and to the agents that Western intelligence used against him probably as early as 2014 to organize – unbeknownst to him – ‘connections’ with some Russians they would later use against him in their false accusations. Telephones that were used by Mr. Joseph Mifsud, “Lawyer Powell writes in the petition presented Tuesday.

    “If we determine that they contain information that is detectable or that is relevant to the conviction, we will provide it to you,” the Justice Department responded.

    The existence of 302 of talks with Mifsud and two of his telephones in the hands of the Department of Justice are important for the defense of Flynn because they show that the information of the Maltese professor ended up at the FBI, at the DOJ, while they claimed he was an agent Russian. Former FBI director James Comey called Mifsud a “Russian agent”, while in his report the special prosecutor Mueller merely presented him as a person with Russian ties and contacts. If during the whole Russiagate investigation these elements were not shown, then, it was because we wanted to avoid that it turned out that it was, instead, a “provocative agent” and that these “agents” had been employed against Flynn already in 2014.”
