Sidney Powell says that the government should deal with the treatment of the former National security Advisor, Michael Flynn every American.

The lawyer Michael Flynn, in the case against the former national security adviser demanded prosecutors turn over any two phones, a shadowy professor, whose role in the Trump-Russia research was for a long time shrouded in mystery.

Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, filed a motion on Tuesday the devices, claiming to be in possession of a Maltese Professor Joseph Mifsud, addiction, that they contain imperative information for the defense of their clients.


“This information is material, exculpatory, and for the defence of Mr Flynn,” Powell submission wrote in a court.

She claimed that the phones could contain specific information in respect of the Western secret services as “the task of [Flynn] to agree on, probably as early as 2014 unbeknownst to him – “connections” with some Russians, they would then use against him in their false claims.”

She added: “The phones were Mr Joseph Mifsud.”

The submission amounted to the latest salvo in an escalating fight between his defense and the government, with the Flynn’s conviction is still in the air for his confession about false statements to the FBI about his contacts with the former Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak. The government said in late August that the case was ready for prosecution, after months of delays. U.S. district judge Emmet Sullivan has a Dec. 18 of the sentencing date, although it is unclear whether it could be fired again.

Powell told Fox News on Wednesday that the Ministry of justice is currently in the possession of Mifsud phones.

When asked if they thought prosecutors would think, in accordance with your request, you said: “I, the prosecutors in our case is looking for them, but due to your previous responses, I expect to say that they are continuing, they are not relevant.”

Powell has said that Flynn is not the case, “not ready for the day of the judgment,” relying on their timeline will receive the necessary files and documents of vital importance for the defense of their clients. Powell also claimed in an earlier submission, to deny that the government “further, our desire for security clearances” needed to review classified information in regard to Flynn, including transcripts and recordings of telephone calls, the “allegedly substantiate the accusations against” him.

The DOJ attorneys have argued, however, that Powell ‘ s requests “seeking access to classified information, which may or may not exist.”

Powell, however, told Fox News on Wednesday that Emmet G. Sullivan, the judge presiding over the case would not rule on the motion until a hearing on Nov. 7.

Mifsud played a prominent role in the origins of the Russia-investigation. It has been submitted a long time been suggested in court documents by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the team, from the Democrats on Capitol Hill and in the media– that Mifsud was connected with the Russian intelligence, if others insist that he was more closely with Western governments and their intelligence services.

With regard to the special counsel’s probe, Miller’s last report noted that Mifsud said the former trump campaign as a foreign policy adviser to George Papadopoulos, the Russians had shaft “dirt” in the form of E-Mails, the damage to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential campaign. Papadopoulos later, to make himself guilty of known false statements, as part of this investigation, and served a short two-week detention last year.

The false statements were in January 2017 to FBI agents regarding his contacts with Mifsud. Papadopoulos, in his confession, admitted that Mifsud shared the information that Russia had “dirt” on the Clinton campaign.

George Papadopoulos (left) pleaded guilty in October to lying to the FBI about his conversations with the Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud (right).

Papadopoulos met with several foreign persons abroad, including Mifsud, and the former Australian diplomat Alexander Downer. Papadopoulos Downer said his meeting with Mifsud, and told that the Russians had possibly incriminating information against Clinton. Downer later said the Americans, who allegedly helped the request of the FBI ‘ s original Russia investigation.

Papadopoulos, though, has suggested that the Downer was part of the plot, to lay the Foundation for the Russia-probe.


Attorney General Bill Barr, earlier this year, suggested that “spying to occur, have” early on in the Russia of the probe, and the job, U.S. attorney in Connecticut, John Durham with the investigation of any misconduct in this counterintelligence investigation, and unauthorized monitoring of the Trump campaign in 2016, as well as whether or not the Democrats were the ones who were wrong, in cooperation with foreign actors.

Fox News reported last week that Durham explores known to a wider timeline than in the past. It was initially believed that Durham was checking the days before the election in 2016 by the inauguration. However, based on his findings, Durham, is expanding its probe, adding of agents and resources, several senior administration officials.

The timeline has from the beginning of the probe by the election and is now a post-election timeline through the spring of 2017, up to when Robert Muller was named special advice.

Barr and Durham, and Italy, traveled recently to speak to law enforcement authorities on the probe, and also had discussions with authorities in the United Kingdom and Australia concerning the investigation, which, according to several sources familiar with the meeting. The President of Italy, Sergio Mattarella, is in Washington on Wednesday to meet with President Trump.

It is unclear whether Mifsud mobile phones were revealed as part of the Durham probe.
