Barr Went to Rome to Hear a Secret Tape from Joseph Mifsud, Professor Who Helped Ignite Russia probe

Barr Went to Rome to Hear a Secret Tape from Joseph Mifsud, the Professor Who Helped Ignite the Russia Probe

ROME–When Attorney General William Barr showed up at the U.S. embassy’s Palazzo Margherita on Rome’s tony Via Veneto last week, he had two primary requests. He needed a conference room to meet high level Italian security agents where he could be sure no one was listening in. And he needed an extra chair for U.S. Attorney John Durham of Connecticut who would be sitting at his right hand side.

Barr was in Rome on an under-the-radar mission that was only planned a few days in advance. An official with the embassy confirmed to The Daily Beast that they had to scramble to accommodate Barr’s sudden arrival. He had been in Italy before, but not with such a clear motive. Barr and Durham are looking into the events that led to Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, and suddenly all roads were leading to Rome.

The Daily Beast has learned that Barr and Durham were especially interested in what the Italian secret service knew about Joseph Mifsud, the erstwhile professor from Malta who had allegedly promised then candidate Donald Trump’s campaign aide George Papadopoulos he could deliver Russian “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. The Italian Justice Ministry public records show that Mifsud had applied for police protection in Italy after disappearing from Link University where he worked and, in doing so, had given a taped deposition to explain just why people might want to harm him.

A source in the Italian Ministry of Justice, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told The Daily Beast that Barr and Durham were played the tape. A second source within the Italian government also confirmed to The Daily Beast that Barr and Durham were shown other evidence the Italians had on Mifsud.

1. "The Daily Beast reached Stephan Roh, Mifsud's Swiss lawyer, by phone Tuesday who said he hadn't see

"The Daily Beast reached Stephan Roh, Mifsud’s Swiss lawyer, by phone Tuesday who said he hadn’t seen his client “for quite some time” but that he “doubted” he would show his face in Rome."

8. Yes, on Freeper sites. Papadopoulos is once again working with tRumpland

They're up to creating their own international narrative or some other cuckoo stuff. I didn't get much into it, because you know, it's a BS waste of time.

7. I guess I'm not following

Are they there to bury this kind of evidence? Or are they trying to do a hit job on Popadopoulos?

10. They're trying to find dirt on Hillary and

Follow conspiratorial “leads” that the mueller investigation was a fraud

IOW, what is really true they want to claim is false and vice versa

11. OK. Sorry. It's been a long day.

Because he said he had dirt on Hillary, they went to hear what he had to say. These people are pathetic.

9. They're trying their best to make this appear a Democratic Party sting operation

...without acknowledging that a sting operation never entraps the innocent-but if they want to make this a case for entrapment they should be aware the evidentiary bar is much higher than smoke and innuendo.
