The Daily Beast is reporting that Attorney General Barr went to Italy to listen to a recording of professor Joseph Mifsud. According to the report, both he and U.S. Attorney John Durham went to Rome to look at the events that led to the start of the Russia investigation. News reports say that Mifsud had met with George Papadopoulos and offered to give him dirt on Hillary Clinton. Mifsud apparently then arranged for Mr. Papadopoulos to meet with others including someone that he and his contacts falsely claimed was Vladimir Putin’s niece.
At some point, Mifsud went to the police and asked for protection. According to the Daily Beast, a recording of Mifsud was made in which he describes the reasons why he would need protection and described why people would want to hurt him.
If this is true, why is the media outraged that the Attorney General of the United States is investigating the possible threats against the individual’s life whose actions started one of the biggest investigations in U.S. history? It is surprising that the extremely biased media has not jumped to a false conclusion and accused President Trump, or one of his supporters, of threatening harm to the professor.
An anonymous source told the Daily Beast that AG Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham listened to the recording and were shown other evidence that the Italians had on Mifsud. With this report readily available, the media has decided to report that AG Barr flew around the world chasing a conspiracy theory.
What he was really doing was simply his job.
