I see speculation that Joseph Mifsud has vanished... maybe killed

I RECALL the guys at The Duran reporting that he was in ROME a few months ago. In fact Barr and Durham travelled to Rome... I thought to interview him... but maybe that was just to listen to Recordings by him??

Most recent article mentioning him is......

Mysterious Professor at Heart of Russian Investigation Returns for Impeachment Proceedings

HE’S BACK

Joseph Mifsud has returned from the abyss just as impeachment proceedings begin against President Donald Trump—or has he?

Barbie Latza Nadeau, Correspondent-At-Large
Published Nov. 13, 2019 3:51PM ET

ROME—Joseph Mifsud, the erstwhile professor from Malta whose promise to help then-candidate Donald Trump’s campaign aide George Papadopoulos get his hands on Russian “dirt” about Hillary Clinton has reportedly resurfaced.

On Wednesday, the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera posted a six-minute audio recording in English it says Mifsud sent from an anonymous email account late Tuesday night. A short time later, the Italian news agency Adnkronos published a clip it received. Whether other publications received the Mifsud missive is not clear, nor is the more important question of whether it’s genuine.

Last summer Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham traveled to Rome twice to learn what they could from Italian secret service officials about the professor as part of their investigation into the Russian investigation led by Robert Mueller. Mifsud has not been seen for two years and speculation has swirled around the question of whether he is still alive and, if he is, who is supporting him.

The Corriere clip starts with a brief introduction. “Today is the 11th of November 2019” and continues, “I am Joseph Mifsud speaking, this is my voice.” It does sound like other recordings of Mifsud.

He goes on to say that he has had “no contact with friends and family for a number of months now.” While he doesn’t say where he is or where he has been, it is clear that—if this is Mifsud—he hopes that he can come back out from under whatever rock he has been hiding under for the last two years.

“It is extremely important finally … that I am given the possibility of coming back to life,” the voice says. “It has been very, very difficult for me to live like this, without any human contact, without a human experience, and I believe that I should be given the opportunity to do that. It is extremely important that somebody somewhere decides to let me breathe again.”

He does not say who is keeping him from resurfacing or why he has chosen to go underground. But he does make a laborious attempt to explain that he is “just a networker” who connects people who might be interested in “similar topics.”

Recap......

Barr & Durham travel to Rome, as walls close in on mysterious Professor Mifsud
Oct 8, 2019
The Duran





Two top guys would NOT go to Rome just to listen to a tape.
Not Mifsud himself... so the Duran guys think that means Mifsud is under protection of some agency... Italian? or UK MI5
Sure that Durham and Barr would have only gone to SEE Mifsud... confirm he was there (and alive).
NOT likely a US agent.. else Barr and Durham would have access.. so likely MI5, MI6

Notes from Papadopoulos Podcasts...

Image

The OIG report claims the "Counter Intelligence" investigation "Crossfire Hurricane" started 31st July 2016
But... clearly there was SPYING on Trump and Trump people way before then.

- Flynn Case has revealed that Flynn "spied on" by Halper and Mifsud in 2015.
- Papa must have been spied on while still working on Ben Carson Campaign, because his personal info (such as his pending job with Trump) known BEFORE there was any announcement about him joining Trump campaign. So his personal communication known while still with Carson (Feb 2016?)

February 2016
After agreeing to take up job with Trump.....
Papa quits job in London with Center for international law practice. They question Trump as suitable Candidate, but also suggest Papa meet some people (in Rome) before he finally leaves them

March 2016
Invited by Aravinda Sambei to come to Rome
Vincenzo Scoti (former Italian foreign Minister) Introduces Papa to Mifsud
Avinda Sambei has previous ties to Robert Mueller, also connection with Bruce Orr

Mid March 2016
After returning to London... Papa informed By the COMPANY that Mifsud has somebody important he should meet. "Vladamir Putin's Niece", Olga. (She turned out to be the "manager of a wine store" in moscow and a student?... or maybe less reputable than that according to some Russian media. A guy like Mifsud might raise suspicions but the Company "Center for international law practice" was supposedly VERY reputable including ex-high officials from Western governments/ ministers/diplomats. So Papa took this as creditable. Thought he had potential very useful contact. Note Trump had been open about seeking "good relations" with Putin and Russia.. in the normal International relations sense... so perhaps turning that into a a (false) sinister thing to discredit Trump make sense to intel types.

March 21st 2016
Popadoplus job with Trump campaign announced publicly. So all the previous appraches from people who clearly knew about his Trump job seem to be as a result of "spying" on Papa's private communications.

March 31st 2016
Infamous round table meeting with Trump and team. Papadopolus said he could broker a Phot-op with Trump and Putin. Trump not that keen.. but Sessions interested and suggests working more on it. Papa gave Sessions his business card.. and spoke to Steven Miller also.

Image

April 20th 2016
3 weeks after joining Trump Campaign...
With Israeli embassy official and his "girlfriend"...Australian Government reached out to Papa for first time. While he was in London. Out of the blue.
Papa NO links to Australia, nothing about Australia had come up in Trump rallies etc, yet Australian Diplomat sought meeting?
Meeting with Erika Thompson. Australian London embassy "diplomat".. actually has intel. background.
She says Australia hate Trump, cant let him win. Australia want TPP deal etc. Cameron had also called Trump stupid and UK could not work with him

April 26th 2016
Mifsud make contact again.
Over lunch in London.. Mifsud told Papa that he just got back from Russia and, Russia had 1000's of Hillary emails. This was a widespread RUMOUR everywhere at the time (even Napolitano on Fox had said Russia (and others) had hacked Hillary's Home-brew server.

May 2nd 2016
UK Foreign Minister Tobias Elwood.... wants Info on Trump

May 5th (3rd??) 2016
Terrance Dudley and Greg Baker (US Intel) contact Papa with info about Trump

May 6th 2016
Israeli embassy official and Erika Thomson want to meet again. Calls Trump a treat.
After that lunch Erika Thompson emailed to suggest Pap meet "her boss" Alexander Downer.

May 10th 2016
Downer met with Pap to discuss "any issue".
WARNED Papa 9and his boss Trump) to STOP dissing Cameron in public? (There had been public comments after Cameron had critisized Trump in UK Parliament)
Papa has no specific recollection.. but he is said to have mentioned that RUSSIANS had dirt on Hillary (the emails that Mifsud (and pretend Putin's niece) said Russia had copies of. Downer appeared to be obviously using his phone to RECORD the convo.

July 2016
After Wikileaks release of DNC and Podesta... Supposedly they looked closer at Downer info on Papa? But... the Hillary emails refer back to 2014... on Hillary server. Nothing to do with DNC sever in 2016. According to James Comey Op edMay 28th 2019 in WaPo... Mifsud was a "Russian agent". but clearly he was not.

Some time after.. Downer is supposed to have REPORTED to US dept? that Papa had said the Russia has dirt on Hillary.
THAT (in theory) is what caused US to open "Crossfire Hurricane"
IF Downer and his info were creditable enough to launch CFH... why did they try to get Halper to repeat it all? Maybe just to protect Downer/Australia? Halper got exposed as a spy so that did not work out as planned.

September 2016
Papa contacted "out of the blue" by Halper inviting him to UK. (HALPER = SOURCE 2)
Papa traveled to London, Met "blonde bombshell" Azra Turk, Halpers girfriend? Handler? Agent?
SHE is omitted from mention in OIG report? So not part of FBI, or protected from mention for some reason? Maybe she is working for CIA.
Back to OIG report... "Source 2" is HALPER. Crossfire Hurricane already started. Halper was directed to make contact with Papa. To "play to his ego" to "take part in a project". Said to be related to Papa's writings on oilfields in Turkey/Israel and NOT related to Trump (but those issues were why Papa was working for Carson/Trump). FBI trying to claim they are interested in Papa... not going after Trump as such.
Halper is tasked with trying to get Papa to repeat what he had said to "Friendly foreign government" (Australia... Alexander Downer)

----------------------
From Wikiprdia....

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Papadopoulos

January 27, 2017
Papadopoulos was interviewed by FBI agents
After the interrogation, on the advice of his counsel, Papadopoulos deactivated his Facebook account, which contained correspondences with Russians, and created a new account.

February 2017
Clinesmith interviewed Papa.... trying to get him to repeat stuff claimed by Downer and Halper etc

July 27, 2017, Papadopoulos was arrested upon landing at Washington-Dulles International Airport, placed in handcuffs and leg shackles, and put in a prison cell overnight for his arraignment the following day. He was released without bail and subsequently cooperated with Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation.

October 5, 2017
Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to making false statements to FBI agents relating to contacts he had with agents of the Russian government while working for the Trump campaign.
The guilty plea was part of a plea bargain reflecting his cooperation with the Mueller investigation.

October 30, 2017
Papadopoulos's arrest and guilty plea became public, when court documents showing the guilty plea were unsealed. Following his guilty plea, Trump described Papadopoulos as a "young, low level volunteer named George, who has already proven to be a liar" and said few people in his campaign had heard about Papadopoulos.
During the campaign, Trump named Papadopoulos as one of his five foreign policy advisers—alongside Keith Kellogg, Carter Page, Walid Phares and Joseph Schmitz—and described Papadopoulos as an "excellent guy".

August 17, 2018
Sentencing memorandum released.
Prosecutors stated that a sentence of zero to six months was "appropriate and warranted," noting that Papadopoulos had repeatedly lied to investigators and did not provide "substantial assistance" to the investigation, and that his lies had interfered with the investigators' ability to question and if necessary detain Joseph Mifsud, who left the United States two weeks after Papadopoulos's first interview with the FBI.

September 7, 2018
Papadopoulos was sentenced to 14 days in prison, 12 months of supervised release, and 200 hours of community service; he was also fined $9,500.

November 26, 2018
He began serving his 14-day sentence on, at FCI Oxford in Oxford, Wisconsin, and was released 12 days later on..

December 7, 2018.
Released from Prison

--------------------------------
The LIE that Mifsud was a RUSSIAN AGENT
... trying to feed (false) info through Popadopolus into Trump Campaign is what is the seed for the entire debacle.
CLEARLY Mifsud is feeding Popa info and other agents are trying to TRAP Popa into repeating that (on tape).. but also clearly they are all WESTERN AGENTS.. working in cahoots (conspiring)

Joseph Mifsud
"Maltese Professor" with many Strong ties to Western Intelligence

NOTE...

May 2017
Robert Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel (May 2017) he took over the Crossfire Hurricane investigation, adding additional DOJ lawyers to staff but retaining the FBI team which included Peter Strzok and Kevin Clinesmith.

June 29, 2017
Clinesmith manipulated the CIA email to gain the third renewal for the Carter Page FISA (June 29, 2017) he was working on behalf of the Mueller

February 2018
Clinesmith was removed from the special counsel team in February 2018 after his biased texts were identified by the inspector general.

Sept 2019
Clinesmith resigned in/around September 2019 “after the inspector general’s team interviewed him.” Not coincidentally that Sept ’19 exit timeline aligns with the first notification to FISC Judge Coller.

Sundance is speculating (again):
Obviously, special counsel Robert Mueller would know the issues regarding Clinesmith prior to removing him in February 2018; and well in advance of his report published in March 2019.

.....a big flashing CYA footnote from the Special Counsel – going out of their way to proactively state that FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith worked under FBI legal supervision, not the Special Counsel’s supervision?

It seems clear in hindsight that Weissmann and Mueller knew the FBI misconduct that was likely to surface, as it has; so they made sure to position blame on FBI Director Chris Wray and FBI Legal Counsel Dana Boente back in March 2019.

------------
Sundance speculates it was Clinesmith who tried to set Popa up with $10,000 (that Popa left back with lawyer). then had him searched as he returned to USA (money laundering charge set-up)

Ex-Trump aide Papadopoulos, who went to jail in Mueller probe, announces a bid for Katie Hill’s seat
Published Mon, Nov 25 2019

  • George Papadopoulos, an ex-campaign advisor to President Donald Trump, said on Monday that he will run for California’s 25th Congressional District seat.
  • Papadopoulos went to jail for 12 days after pleading guilty to lying to the FBI during special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and the Russian government.
  • The seat was vacated by Democrat Katie Hill, who resigned less than a year into her freshman term amid a sex scandal.


[.....]
“It’s a district which the Republicans held for 26 years up until recently, when Katie Hill, the now-disgraced congresswoman recently resigned due to her unethical behavior both in the halls of Congress and in the district that she represented,” he said, making the announcement on the Fox News program “Fox & Friends.” Trump is known to be a fervent viewer of “Fox & Friends.”

The Trump administration did not immediately respond to a CNBC request for comment asking if the president would endorse Papadopoulos.
[....]
Steve Knight, a former two-term representative who held the seat until Hill won in the 2018 midterms, said he will run. On the Democratic side, four candidates have filed to run, including commentator Cenk Uygur of the ultra-progressive “Young Turks” program.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom said the special election primary will be March 3.

Intel probe puts CIA’s Haspel in a bind

The review led by U.S. Attorney John Durham is making life uncomfortable for America’s cautious spy chief.

Image

The prosecutor appointed by Attorney General Bill Barr to examine the origins of the Russia investigation is focusing much of his attention on the CIA, placing the agency’s director, Gina Haspel, at the center of a politically toxic tug-of-war between the Justice Department and the intelligence community.

The prosecutor, John Durham, has reportedly asked the CIA for former director John Brennan’s communications as he examines the January 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment that concluded Russian President Vladimir Putin intervened in the election specifically to help Donald Trump.
[.....]
Haspel’s plight, though, may depend on how deeply Durham investigates an uncorroborated theory pushed by Trump allies that a key player in the Russia probe, a Russia-linked professor named Joseph Mifsud, was actually a Western intelligence asset sent to discredit the Trump campaign — and that the CIA, under Brennan, was somehow involved.

Haspel was the CIA’s station chief in London in 2016 when the U.S. Embassy there was made aware of Mifsud’s contact with a Trump campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, by Australian diplomat Alexander Downer. Haspel was briefed on Downer’s outreach to the embassy, according to a person familiar with the matter, but it’s unclear whether she was then made aware of the FBI’s plans to interview him or knew about the bureau’s use of an informant in London.

I posted a Papa tweet.... which turns out to be FALSE... and Papa has been told
I get the impression he does a LOT of embellishing... to boost his story for his book, and get more sales.

I see conflicting explanations of when Papadopoulos LEFT the Trump campaign,,,

https://www.emptywheel.net/2019/05/27/t ... -campaign/

Quote:
Papadopoulos was dismissed from the Trump Campaign in early October 2016, after an interview he gave to the Russian news agency InterFax generated adverse publicity. *492

*492 George Papadopoulos: Sanctions Have Done Little More Than to Turn Russia Towards China, Interfax (Sept. 30, 2016).


Papadopoulos told HJC/OGR something different: He told them he never left the campaign.
Quote:
Mr. Ratcliffe. How did you leave the campaign? First of all, when did you leave the campaign?

Mr. Papadopoulos. I don’t know if I ever really left the campaign. I think I was involved throughout the whole way in different ways. I mean, one — in one manner I’m helping edit the first foreign policy speech and I’m setting up, helping set up this meeting with the Egyptian President, and then I’m kind of just feeding information into the campaign from March until — all through the transition, quite frankly. So I don’t think I really ever left the campaign, if that makes sense.

Mr. Ratcliffe. Okay.

Mr. Papadopoulos. I was considering leaving, but I don’t think I ever submitted some sort of resignation to the campaign that would — that would suggest I would formally abdicate my duties on the campaign.


Papadopoulos was never paid, so in a sense, he could never really be dismissed

Episode 3 will cover Kevin Clinesmith aka #MrCool

Episode # 3 out this week! We will be covering Kevin Clinesmith, my interactions with him, and how he fits into the FISA scandal! This guy is now under criminal investigation.

---------------
There is no sign of Ep. 3 posted anywhere. As a WEEKLY podcast it was due 27th December, yet NOTHING and it's 31st now :doh

Papa did tweet a pic of himself recording Ep3 and said it would be out "this week".. which was the week that has gone :roll

I have gone right off Papa... his twitter has little info... he could, for instance, update when he intends to post Ep. 3.
Instead he RETWEETS people responding to his own book promo tweets saying how marvelous his book is.. and they look like fake reviews (mostly). He retweets the SAME thing over and over.. just timed as recent.

    EG: THIS book connects all the dots. It’s a must read! I got my signed copy!

I read that he has changed details of his narrative, and I do get the impression he is a bit of a "con-man". NOBODY thinks his role in things was that important. The FBI and Mueller hyped it up as an excuse (in retrospect) for spying. And Papa has hooked on to this made-up inflated role in things to hype himself... sell a few books... seek donations/funding. He claims to be running for Congress. I have no idea if he has a chance of being a nominee, let alone winning.. but meanwhile he is seeking Campaign funding :roll


My comment at Ep 2 on YT (Uploaded 20th December):
Quote:
Rumpoleful
31st December

Where is episode 3??
I assume this is not really a weekly "Podcast" just promo vids for a book.

The Curious Case Of Joseph Mifsud’s Lost Passport And Wallet

A lost passport at a Portuguese airport is the latest bizarre clue in the search for the elusive Maltese professor.

Alberto Nardelli, Christo Grozev
Posted on December 5, 2019

Image

LONDON — While the world was looking for Joseph Mifsud, the Maltese professor who allegedly delivered word of Hillary Clinton’s stolen emails to Donald Trump's campaign, his passport and wallet sat for 17 months in a lost-and-found office in a Portuguese airport.

The items were found by police in a picturesque coastal town in Madeira, a Portuguese island off the coast of Morocco that's popular with tourists and best known for being the birthplace of soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. The passport and wallet were found on Aug. 5, 2017, some three months before Mifsud disappeared from public view and six months after he was questioned by FBI officers investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The bizarre discovery, reported here for the first time, is the latest crumb encountered on the trail of the elusive academic.

A police report reviewed by BuzzFeed News shows that Malta’s embassy in Lisbon was notified of the missing passport on Jan. 24 this year. But a senior Maltese official said that authorities back in Malta did not become aware that a passport belonging to Mifsud had been found in Portugal until late October.

It’s not known whether the items were dumped on purpose or simply mislaid.

Portuguese police said the passport and wallet had been sent to Madeira airport after being found in the town of Câmara de Lobos, and the Maltese embassy was only informed once the time period for them to be claimed had expired.

Searching for Mifsud info I was REMINDED that there was testimony that "Somebody was killed" as a result of the "Muh Russia" stuff.

It was speculated that it was a reference to Seth Rich... but with talk of Mifsud being a gonner... it could be him?

FWIW........ came across a blog... featuring a "Joseph Mifsud Map"

Claims to show connections... I have not studied it, so dont know how valid they are :)

Looks like there have been several updated versions... up to version 11 BUT... this is back in 2017

Joseph Mifsud. The “professor” in the Papadopoulos – Manafort revelations.

Kevin Clinesmith & the $10,000 Setup | Punching Back Ep. 3
Jan 3, 2020
PUNCHING BACK with George Papadopoulos



Feb 2017
Papa interviewed by Clinesmith


All getting a bit silly...

early 2017.....FBI (2 agents?) asked Papa to go to London and "wear a wire" against Mifsud.
Papa refused and was threatened.

Next interview was with Clinesmith and 2 or 3 FBI agents
Nobody interested in Mifsud.... asking about.. who did he (Papa) tell on the Campaign.... what they wanted was a person and "collusion"


Later meeting with businessman George Towel?
Same guy meets Papa while on holiday in Greece with girlfriend. Invites him to Israel.
In Israel gives Papa $10,000 ($100 bills)

June 11th gets cash... June 12th flies to Cyprus
On those dates Weizmann initiates a money laundering investigation.
Papa leaves Cyprus and flies to Greece... still has money, but not detected at customs.... Gives money to his lawyer
Phones The guy to give money back.. who suggests Papa flies to Cyprus to return money.
Papa flies to USA without money and is arrested at airport.
