Elder Patriot – We had been informed by leakers from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of political assassins that Joseph Mifsud, the professor at the center of the allegations that George Papadopoulos who working for the Trump campaign, had met with Papadopoulos to discuss accessing Hillary Clinton’s missing emails.
According to an article by investigative reporter John Solomon writing for The Hill, that wasn’t true. That’s because recently uncovered FBI documents reveal that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Mueller lied about the substance of the Papadopoulos-Mifsud meeting:=
“Documents I obtained from sources show Mifsud told the FBI in February 2017 that his contacts with Papadopoulos a year earlier, during the 2016 presidential campaign, were mostly innocuous. He made that point both in an FBI interview and a follow-up email to agents.
“He described the contacts as an academic exercise in pursuit of peace, not a global plot to hijack the election. And he went out of his way to say there was no talk of sinister cybersecurity intentions such as a plot to hack Hillary Clinton’s emails.
“‘I reaffirm that the content of our conversations was always on wide geo-strategic issues,’ he wrote FBI agents on Feb. 11, in an email that was quickly sent to the very top of the FBI’s counterintelligence division. Mifsud sent the email just hours after agents interviewed him.
“He said the conversations mostly centered around ‘how the Trump then-campaign team looked to develop a conversation on Europe/UK … and with Russia’ and ‘the fallout in policy in the deteriorating relationship between the major countries in the world today.’”
Rosenstein knew this when he appointed Mueller as special counsel, and when he signed the final FISA warrant.
Rosenstein’s failure to disclose this exculpatory evidence to the court is an unpardonable sin and shows just how desperate he is to prevent President Trump from dismantling the criminal cabal that rules over our federal treasury and state secrets.
As we’ve stressed before in response to Rosenstein’s claim that he gets hundreds of FISA applications and relies on his staff’s word to affix his signature, that just doesn’t pass the smell test in this case.
To begin with, this isn’t “just another” application. Rosenstein is smart enough to know that he would be charged by at least half of America with conducting a coup against a sitting president if this came up empty.
Secondly, now that it has come up empty, we don’t hear Rosenstein calling for anyone’s job for making him perjure himself to the secret court.
It’s clear, DAG Rosenstein appointed the most ferocious bulldog he knew to take down President Trump. He chose a man with as much of his own criminal involvements to protect as almost anyone in the swamp. And, a man who had a track record of breaking the law to obtain convictions of even innocent targets.
Solomon’s article squares with President Trump’s stated desire to advance world peace rather than just pay lip service the ideal as have so many previous leaders who grew rich accepting money for defense contractors.
What Solomon revealed also squares with a number of historical truths as well as empirical evidence.
Let’s start with the fact that Mifsud went into hiding last November:
CNN: Academic at heart of Clinton ‘dirt’ claim vanishes, leaving trail of questions
Why would a man suddenly disappear at a time when the government is relying on his testimony to justify the opening of the counterespionage case that resulted in four separate FISA warrants against Carter Page and the Trump presidency?
Was he concerned about a Deep State reprisal if he refused to perjure himself over his original email and 302 statements?
This type of roughshod treatment by Mueller has been documented in the past so, in what is unquestionably the most important case of his life, no one should question his willingness to bend, or even ignore, the rules of evidence.
The fact is that, as much as Mueller has been hired to shield the DOJ and FBI from complete exposure by President Trump, he has really been entrusted with saving the entire corrupt establishment cabal – elected and appointed – from being exposed for the worldwide criminal conspiracy that it became.
