Mifsuds Cell Phones Obtained by Durham Could Answer Key Russiagate Questions

If Mifsud was indeed a Russian asset, it would be surprising for the DOJ to have been able to obtain his devices. An analysis of the full record of Mifsud’s ongoing texts and calls during the period when he met with Papadopoulos could provide evidence as to whom Mifsud was working with. If Durham successfully determines that Mifsud was not a Russian asset, as has been alleged, it would provide a major blow to the credibility of the launch of the FBI’s probe as well as the integrity of the Mueller Report.

Durham’s acquisition of Mifsud’s phones also begs the question of how he was able to obtain them so quickly when the investigation led by Mueller failed to do so after more than two years of work and more than $30 million in costs.

Durham, who recently broadened the timeline and added agents and resources to his ongoing investigation into the origins of the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation, traveled in late September to Italy along with Attorney General William Barr to meet with law enforcement officials.

Both Durham and Barr have also reportedly spoken with officials from the UK and Australia as part of their ongoing investigation.

Barr and Durham’s trip to Italy occurred at the end of September and appears to have been planned only a few days in advance. According to the Daily Beast, an official at the U.S. embassy in Italy noted that “they had to scramble to accommodate Barr’s sudden arrival.”

The Guardian reported that Barr and Durham’s meetings with Italian intelligence officials occurred “after getting authorisation from the Italian prime minister, Giuseppe Conte.” According to the article, they were in Italy in order to “find out whether Italy had played a role in the so-called Russiagate affair, whether secret documents had been obtained and, in particular, to collate information on Joseph Mifsud.”

Barr and Durham reportedly had at least two meetings with Italian intelligence officials on Sept. 27 where they listened to a tape recording of a deposition given by Mifsud after he had applied for “police protection in Italy after disappearing from Link University,” the Daily Beast reported. Additionally, they were reportedly “shown other evidence the Italians had on Mifsud.”

The Daily Beast also noted that “Several mainstream Italian newspapers on Tuesday reported that Mifsud is cooperating with Barr and Durham’s investigation and some even suggested he met them in person in Rome last week.”

A significant question that remains is whether Durham obtained Mifsud’s Blackberrys prior to, or during, the Italy trip, and whether the data on the phones played a role in the sudden visit.
