In the classic movie, “Goodfellas”, Big Pauly, the local mob boss, brilliantly played by Paul Sorvino, never conducted “sensitive business” over the phone because he was always afraid that the Feds were listening in.
In this case, it is the phones used by an undercover agent of Obama’s FBI that may nail the Deep State “Feds”.
WashingtonTimes.com reports that
It was special investigator John Durham who acquired two BlackBerrys used by Joseph Mifsud, the Maltese professor who jumped-started the FBI’s long Russia probe into President Trump’s campaign.
Sidney Powell, attorney for retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, filed a court motion on Monday disclosing the phones’ existence while tying them to Western intelligence.
She told The Washington Times on Thursday that she has confirmed that it was Mr. Durham’s office who obtained them.
Attorney General William P. Barr assigned Mr. Durham, the U.S. attorney for Connecticut, the mission of finding out the origins of the FBI’s counter-intelligence investigation known as Crossfire Hurricane. She told The Times that a “source,” whom she declined to identify, told her about the BlackBerrys.
Mr. Mifsud, a university professor and well-traveled lecturer, told George Papadopoulos, a Trump campaign adviser, in London in April 2016 that Moscow owned thousands of Hillary Clinton emails. When the news reached the FBI in July, agent Peter Strzok initiated the probe.
The FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller have always contended that Mr. Mifsud was a Russian asset. Mr. Mueller’s final report made no mention of the numerous associations Mr. Mifsud maintained with Western diplomats and intelligence figures.
Mr. Papadopoulos contends Mr. Mifsud was a Western agent sent to entrap him.
By the spring of 2016, the FBI knew that Russian intelligence was hacking Democratic Party computers.
Ms. Powell has added to the Mifsud intrigue with her motion before District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan asking him to order the government to turn over the BlackBerrys’ data. The filing lists the two phones’ model number, PIN and SIM card information.
She told the judge that on Oct. 11 she asked the prosecution for phone data. She was ignored until she sent notification days later that she planned to file the discovery motion.
The motion says: “Michael T. Flynn requests the government be ordered to produce evidence that has only recently come into its possession……… This information is material, exculpatory, and relevant to the defense of Mr. Flynn, and specifically to the “OCONUS LURES” and agents that western intelligence tasked against him likely as early as 2014 to arrange—unbeknownst to him—‘connections’ with certain Russians that they would then use against him in their false claims. The phones were used by Mr. Joseph Mifsud.”
“OCONUS LURES” is an FBI acronym for an operation to lure a person back to the U.S.
Flynn headed the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency until the Obama White House forced his retirement in August 2014 over disagreements on fighting Islamic extremists.
Flynn, Mr. Trump’s national security adviser in early 2017, pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents, including Mr. Strzok, about discussions he had with the Russian ambassador during the presidential transition.
It did not relate to election interference. No Trump associated was ever charged in a Russian conspiracy which Mr. Mueller said he didn’t find.
Ms. Powell has been filing motions demanding the government turn over exculpatory evidence. She wants to show it was withheld early on, violating Judge Sullivan’s order.
Reacting to the BlackBerry disclosure, Mr. Papadopoulos tweeted: “I lived this spy story. The government’s of the UK, Australia, Italy sent their agents: Mifsud, Downer, Halper, Azra Turk and many more. With the new info on Mifsud’s phones with the DOJ, my story was the one that exposed the greatest spying scandal in history. Downer is next!”
Alexander Downer was the Australian ambassador in London to whom Mr. Papadopoulos relayed the Mifsud gossip. Mr. Downer denies he was a spy. Stephan Halper and Azar Turk were FBI/western intelligence spies assigned to Mr. Papadopoulos in London.
Justice Department spokesperson Kerri Kupec declined to comment on the Flynn motion.
When news broke that Mr. Durham was in Rome, she released a statement:
“As the Department of Justice has previously announced, a team led by U.S. Attorney John Durham is investigating the origins of the U.S. counterintelligence probe of the Trump 2016 presidential campaign. Mr. Durham is gathering information from numerous sources, including a number of foreign countries. At Attorney General Barr’s request, the President has contacted other countries to ask them to introduce the Attorney General and Mr. Durham to appropriate officials.”
Mr. Mifsud taught at Link University in Rome. Students included NATO personnel.
Let’s look at one of the FBI/Western intelligence spies assigned to Mr. Papadopoulos in London, shall we?
To call Stefan Halper a “Washington Insider” and a member of “The Deep State” is an understatement.
This guy’s curriculum vitae reads like a Who’s Who of the American Political Scene from the Reagan Years until now.
According to The Institute for World Politics, where he is a Research Professor…
From 2001 to the present:, he has been employed at Cambridge University as a Professor in the Department of Politics and International Studies where he also serves as Director of American Studies.
His work in the field of Politics is a lot more interesting that his accomplishments in Academia
Halper served in the White House (1971-1977) during the Nixon and Ford Administrations.
1971-1973 White House Domestic Council;
1973-74 White House Office of Management and Budge. Assist. Director, Management and Evaluation Division
1974- January 20, 1977 White House Office of the Chief of Staff. Assistant to the Chief of Staff . (responsibilities included summary and analysis of foreign developments and security issues)
1977-79 Legislative Assistant to Senator William Roth (R-Del.) and Special Counsel to the Joint Economic Committee.
1979-80 National Director, Policy Development. George H.W. Bush. Presidential campaign
1980 National Director, Policy Coordination, Reagan-Bush 1980 (presidential campaign)
1981-1984 Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Politico-Military Affairs.
(Portfolio included China-US relations, Taiwan, non-proliferation, technology transfer, unconventional warfare.)
1984-1990 Chairman and majority shareholder:
The Palmer National Bank, Washington, D.C.
The National Bank of Northern Virginia, Leesburg, Va.
The George Washington National Bank, Alexandria, Va.
1990-2000 Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Halper, Roosevelt and Brown.
1984-2001 Senior Advisor to the Department of Defense and a Senior Advisor to the Department of Justice.
With a list of accomplishments like those above, Halper made the perfect “mole” to be embedded in the Trump Presidential Campaign.
You realize what the bottom line in all of the revelations which are beginning to be made public, don’t you, boys and girls?
It means that a sitting President embedded a spy in the opposition party’s Presidential Campaign in order to sabotage their operations, thus insuring the victory of his hand-picked successor and retaining the seat of power for his political party. Of course, according to the raving Liberals at the New York Times, that was done to “protect” Trump.
And, if you buy that, I have stock in the Hillary Clinton School of Grace and Charm to sell you.
Obama made Nixon look like an amateur.
And, for those Liberals among you who insist that Obama had no idea what the FBI and DOJ were up to during Spygate…
I have two bridges over the Mississippi River at Memphis to sell you.
I have written a lot of posts detailing just how petty and vindictive a person that Barack Hussein Obama is. However, even I had no idea the extent to which “Chicago Politics” had invaded the inner workings of our Federal Government under Petulant President Pantywaist.
Looking back on Obama’s rise to political power, however, these accusations are not far fetched, at all.
In 2004, Illinois State Senator Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) decided to run for The United States Senate.
In order to have a successful Senatorial campaign, Scooter had to secure tremendous financial backing and be the recipient of astute political mentoring. No problem.
It is now very well-known that George Soros, evil genius, major Democratic Party donor and anti-Israel crusader, has been a generous contributor to Barack Obama. However, not too many people know that a loophole in McCain-Feingold allowed Soros and his family members to be extremely generous in their support of Obama’s 2004 Senatorial campaign.
Obama had to run against Blair Hull in the primary and then Jack Ryan in the general (both multi-millionaires). Obama received huge donations from individuals, to so-called “millionaires exception.” Usually, individuals are limited to giving $2300 to candidates in federal elections, but if the candidates are running against millionaires, these limits do not apply and candidates are allowed to receive up to $12,000 from a single individual. Soros and his family gave Barack Obama $60,000. This does not count the money that Soros was funneled to so-called 527 groups (Moveon.org, for example) that have also been politically active; nor does it include money that Soros raised from tapping a network of friends, business associates, and employees.
Besides garnering unlimited campaign funds, as the campaigns entered their closing rounds, the news ”happened to be” leaked to media outlets that both Hull and Ryan had “personal scandals” in their past. The timely release of this news wiped out both of their campaigns, leading to an easy victory for Obama in the primary and then in the general election.
The New York Times Magazine revealed that David Axelrod, Obama’s chief political and media adviser, may well have been behind the leak of the story that doomed the Hull candidacy as the primary reached its home stretch. I’m shocked.
As he has shown over the years, Axelrod was right at home operating in this gray area, part idealist, part hired muscle. One can not bring up Axelrod’s name in certain circles in Chicago without the matter of the Blair Hull divorce papers coming up. Approaching the 2004 Senate primary, it was clear that it was a two-man race: the millionaire liberal, Hull, leading in the polls, and Obama, who was the figurehead of an impressive grass-roots campaign. One month before the vote, The Chicago Tribune “just happened” to reveal, at the end of a long profile of Hull, that during a divorce proceeding, Hull’s second wife filed for an order of protection. This revelation proceeded to erupt into a full-fledged scandal. This scandal destroyed Hull’s campaign and handed Obama an easy primary victory.
The Tribune reporter who wrote the story later admitted in print that the Obama camp had “worked aggressively behind the scenes” to push the story. However, a lot of folks in Chicago believe that Axelrod leaked the initial story. They will tell you that before signing on with Obama, Axelrod interviewed with Hull. They also point out that Obama’s TV ad campaign just happened to start at almost the same time. Axelrod swears up and down that “we had nothing to do with it” and that the campaign’s television ad schedule was in the works for a long time.
An aura grows up around you, and people assume everything emanates from you.
The lowdown political chicanery that was used to gain Obama his Senate Seat was just the beginning of a career of political corruption, Chicago Style.
I would love to see Obama, Hillary, Comey, and the rest of the Deep State Conspiracy indicted, sentenced, and then frog-marched to jail.
I wrote when all of this first started coming out t`hat I thought that we were all in the middle of a Tom Clancy Novel being played out in real life.
Evidently, there were several “novels” “published” that we never even knew about…until now..
