The following article, Investigation Into Origin Of FBI Russia Probe Expanding Based on ‘New Evidence’, was first published on Flag And Cross.
U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the FBI’s Russia probe has reportedly uncovered “new evidence” that is leading to an expansion of efforts to look into the matter.
The evidence was apparently unearthed during a trip Durham took with Attorney General William Barr to Italy.
Here are more details from TheBlaze:
Sources told Fox News that Durham is now “very interested” in talking to former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, two of President Donald Trump’s most vocal critics who served in the Obama administration.
Barr and Durham traveled to Italy on extremely short notice, according to the Daily Beast. Once at the U.S. Embassy in Rome, Barr requested “a conference room to meet high-level Italian security agents where he could be sure no one was listening in.”
Inside that conference room, Barr and Durham reportedly listened a taped deposition from Joseph Mifsud, an Italian Ministry of Justice source told the Daily Beast. Mifsud is the professor who allegedly told Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos that he had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton.
The reason this is so significant is because Papadopoulos spoke with Fox News where he suggested that Mifsud contacted him “as part of a setup orchestrated by intelligence agencies.”
“So clearly, there was some sort of global or at least European radar on me while I was living in London and as soon as I was joining the Trump campaign — which not even the media knew at the time — I’m being introduced to Joseph Mifsud, in Rome, at a school that trains the CIA and the FBI. So, why I was introduced to Joseph Mifsud, and why this company introduced me to Joseph Mifsud, now that we know they’re connected to MI6 and the FBI, makes things even more suspicious and a lot more damning, in my opinion,” Papadopoulos said.
Fox News reported just last week that the scope of Durham’s investigation into the Russia probe has widened. The investigation previously focused on FBI actions preceding the 2016 presidential election, but that has now changed to include events that transpired after the election and leading up to Robert Mueller’s appointment as special counsel.
