Mueller let the cat out of the bag – now Barr’s going to catch the cat.
Mueller made an epic faceplant while testifying before Congress.
The former special counsel couldn’t keep his facts straight. Some have suggested he didn’t even know the contents of his own report.
Or maybe he’s just feeling guilty of the sham of a probe he ran for two years, spending millions of dollars.
Regardless of the reason, Mueller didn’t have much of a response when Jim Jordan hammered him over a key figure, Joseph Mifsud.
Apparently, Mueller just overlooked this man and the role he played in all this.
But now Barr’s bulldog is going after him for answers.
From Washington Examiner:
The Department of Justice seeks an interview with Joseph Mifsud, the Maltese academic who told former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos that the Russians had damaging information about Hillary Clinton, to determine if he was part of an intelligence operation.
Uh-oh! John Durham, Barr’s bulldog, is going after Joseph Mifsud and his role in the Russian scandal.
Mifsud was the one who approached Papadopoulos with the story that Russians had dirt on Clinton. We know that during their conversations, Papadopoulos was recorded.
The intent was to get the former Trump aid to admit something damaging on tape.
But it looks like Mueller didn’t bother to dig deep into Mifsud’s connections, even though some believe he has ties to Russian intelligence.
It’s clear that Russia was up to something. Were they working with Clinton to craft her dirty dossier on Trump? Was Mifsud a part of this?
We know that Russia tried to spread disinformation during the 2016 Election. We know rumors and slander were spread to make Trump appear to be colluding with Russia.
Mifsud’s name pops up an awful lot during this entire story. Yet Mueller didn’t do much to find out his real connections.
That’s changing, now that we know Durham is getting to the bottom of this.
Could Mifsud reveal more that we need to know? Will the AG’s investigation prove who was really colluding with whom? And will Trump get justification for the ongoing witch hunt?
Hopefully, we’ll find out soon.
SHARE if you want Barr to start charging Mifsud and the investigators!
