The request for the resignation of FOUR directors and TWO deputy directors of the Italian Intelligence Community was requested on May 15, 2019, by the Council’s President.
The news of the request of resignation of these directors if true indicates that this is a grave situation indicating that the structure of our intelligence community which must be a rigid may in fact have political influence and or political “subdivisions” and that is cause for concern since they are entrusted with the highest security matters in our country. Simply posing the question of political affiliation and the possibility of partisan behavior would risk the image of our intelligence community and destroy the credibility they have domestically and as part of the international intelligence information sharing network that relies on professionalism, independence and the absence of political interests we may have in the countries of which we share information with.Senator Luigi Zanda
The Democrat senators all expressed their concerns and demanded the President of the Council to either withdraw the requests for resignation or offer immediate assurances and plans for the replacements for these key positions of the Italian Intelligence community are non-partisan to ensure just and effective operational efficiency.
If what is being reported is true and indeed these resignations have been requested, this will humiliate our Intelligence Community domestically and to our international intelligence partners, creating a grave precedent and dangerous practice for a democratic country.Senator Roberta Pinotti (Democrat Party) – FRM Minister of Defense
The Democratic Party is complaining that the intelligence community’s corruption and overuse of authority have never been questioned and that moves like this were always political in the past yet, the Republican party applauds this move to purge non-Italian foreign interest-driven activities of the Italian Intelligence Community.
I spoke to a source at the public liaison office of the House in Italy earlier today. I asked if they believe Joseph Misfud being harbored in Italy is responsible for these resignation requests. The response I received is :
The Italian Intelligence Community has done more for our “partners” than they have for Italy in the past decade. If indeed is Misfud being harbored in our country it is not in Italy’s interest as per relations with the United States of America. If in fact he is being harbored against the interest of Italy but for the interests of the other “allies” this indicates a problem. Our intelligence community should have Italian interests above all and if this is not the case then our Intelligence Community is compromised both at home and abroad. I cannot confirm or deny the presence of Joseph Misfud in Italy at this time.Public Liaison
The Directors of Department of Information for Security (Dis), External Security Information Agency ( Aise) and Homeland Security, Information Agency (AISI), and the Internal Information Security Division have been asked to resign as information about Joseph Misfud, who has been missing for some time is allegedly being harbored by the Italian Intelligence Community in Italy.
Joseph Mifsud has well-known and established high-level connections to the Russian state and European politicians, specifically those in the UK. Mifsud is a former employee of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Malta, a former principal in the London Centre of International Law Practice, a professorial teaching fellow at the University of Stirling in Scotland, and director of the Diplomatic Academy of London. Misfud has been named and implicated during the investigations of the #RussiaHoax by Mueller. Misfud was hired by the US Intelligence Community and /or FBI to entrap George Papadopoulos by attempting to broker “dirt on Hillary Clinton,” Which Misfud had with Papadopoulos to assist them in obtaining surveillance warrants under section 702.
Mifsud went missing in 2017 after his relationship with George Papadopoulos was exposed. Many thought he was dead.
Reported by the Daily Caller:
The Mueller report does not include any evidence to support Papadopoulos’ claims that Mifsud has links to the FBI. But Stephan Roh, a friend, and adviser to Mifsud has told The Daily Caller News Foundation that Mifsud has some affiliation with Western intelligence agencies. He has said Mifsud was instructed to lay low until the Mueller investigation blew over.
Mueller’s report stated that Misfud provided false testimony to the FBI regarding his relationship and interactions with George Papadopoulos. Most recently, it was reported by Il Foglio that Misfud was living in an apartment owned by Link Campus (Rome). Link Campus is widely known to have extraordinary ties to European and Western intelligence.
Our sources say that the residential property where Misfud is allegedly being housed is known to be a hotbed for the activity of Aise and western intelligence agents, which are part of the 9 Eyes Partnership.
It looks like John Owen Brennan is being offered up to save the embarrassment of the soon-to-come declassification. So Italy is indeed a US ally. Hopefully, the UK, AUS, NZ, France, and Germany are taking notes.
It looks like across the globe, President Trump is setting trends, and countries are beginning to trim the fat and put their country’s interests above global ones.
