The Reason for Barr and Durham’s Trip to Rome Last Week? To Hear a Secret Tape from the Mysterious Mr. Mifsud
Post Date: 2019-10-02 20:35:08 by Tooconservative
Attorney General William Barr may have intended for his trip to Rome last week to go unnoticed, but it was pretty hard to keep it under wraps after he and U.S. Attorney John Durham showed up at the U.S. Embassy requesting a secure conference room. Several key events from the Russian collusion story took place in Rome. The Link University campus in the city provided the backdrop for many of those events. The faculty of Link University is closely connected to the British intelligence community. Moreover, the FBI held a training program at Link in the fall of 2016, an interesting fact which the Mueller report conveniently omitted. And it just so happened that in March 2016, ...

Post Date: 2019-09-29 17:37:26 by IbJensen
