Sources: Durham's Expanded Investigation Into Brennan and Clapper Based on "New Evidence"

New evidence with an Italian accent, forse?

Is this why we've seen such a furious attack on anyone daring to ask about Joseph Misfud?

The sources said Durham was "very interested" to question former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan, an anti-Trump critic who recently dismissed the idea.

...

In Italy, Barr reportedly told embassy officials he "needed a conference room to meet high-level Italian security agents where he could be sure no one was listening in."

A source in the Italian Ministry of Justice told The Daily Beast earlier this month that Barr and Durham were played a taped deposition made by Joseph Mifsud, the professor who allegedly told ex-Trump aide George Papadopoulos that the Russians had "dirt" on Hillary Clinton. Mifsud reportedly was explaining to authorities in the deposition why people would want to harm him, and why he needed police protection.

Papadopoulos has suggested he was connected with Mifsud as part of a setup orchestrated by intelligence agencies.

Yesterday I wrote about "Fusion Nat" Bertrand's breathless attempt to protect her source and meal-ticket, former Communist John Brennan.

But I missed something. Deb Heine, and others, caught it.

That piece is worth reading in full; she rebuts everything that Fusion Nat writes.

But here she alerts supposed national security expert Fusion Nat about some not-so-long-ago events in the realm of national security. She noted that someone had charged Brennan with having previously been accused of lying to Congress -- and then denied such a thing never happened at all!

"It's not clear what Gidley was referring to--Brennan has not been accused of lying to Congress," Bertrand and Kippman reported.

Allow me.

In written testimony to the House Intelligence Committee, Brennan in May of 2017 falsely claimed that he had briefed each member of the so-called Gang of Eight about "Russian attempts to interfere in the election" between August 11, 2016 and September 6, 2016.

At the time, the Gang of Eight--congressional leaders who are briefed on classified intelligence matters by the executive branch--was comprised of Senators Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Richard Burr (R-N.C.), and Representatives Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), and Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).

"Again, in consultation with the White House, I personally briefed the full details of our understanding of Russian attempts to interfere in the election to congressional leadership," Brennan wrote. "I provided the same briefing to each Gang of Eight member. Given the highly sensitive nature of what was in what was an active counterintelligence case, involving an ongoing Russian effort, to interfere in our presidential election, the full details of what we knew at the time were shared only with those members of congress; each of whom was accompanied by one senior staff member."

Representing herself as some kind of expert in national security while not even having the most superficial knowledge of national security is very on-brand for Natasha Bertrand, as the kids say.



As I mentioned yesterday, the Leftwing Media/Deep State partnership is really going into overdrive to discredit anyone looking into Joseph Mifsud.

Remember: You're only safe when they're afraid.
