U.S. Attorney General William Barr Was in Rome To Investigate the Mifsud Coup Connection
Oct. 2, 2019 (EIRNS)—Mainstream media are sweating bullets at the mission of U.S. Attorney General William Barr to Rome, as Barr is coming close to the smoking gun of Russiagate perpetrators. Barr visited Rome two times recently and met the heads of Italian foreign and domestic intelligence, to find out whether Italian assets played a role in the Russiagate operation against the President. In particular, Barr is investigating the role and the backers of Josef Mifsud, the British agent who entrapped George Papadopoulos. According to Papadopoulos, Mifsud was deployed by Italian intelligence under the Renzi and Gentiloni governments (Italian Democratic Party) to do a favor for the Obama gang.
According to Italian media, Barr was in Rome first in mid-August and he met Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte together with the intelligence chiefs. During those days, Trump wrote the same “Giuseppi” tweet, in which he endorsed Conte’s effort to form a new government. Conte’s cooperation in the investigation might explain Trump’s endorsement.
Barr was again in Rome on Sept. 27, accompanied by U.S. Attorney John Durham, and met again the intelligence chiefs. The Department of Justice officially confirmed the visit: “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,” Kerri Kupec, the Justice Department spokesman said in a statement. “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.”
Mainstream media claim that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit to Rome yesterday also has to do with the anti-Russiagate investigation.
