Devin Nunes may only represent a small portion of Californians, but he’s done more for all Americans than just about any other congressman in regards to uncovering the seemingly endless layers of deceit, lies, obfuscation, and skullduggery regarding the deep state coup attempt against POTUS Donald Trump.

On Friday, Nunes continued his quest to expose the guilty with a demand for documents from the NSA, CIA, State Department, and the FBI regarding an operative named Joseph Mifsud after casting doubts on conclusions about his role contained in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

Fox News‘ Catherine Herridge and Alex Pappas reported:

House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes is scrutinizing the findings in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report about Joseph Mifsud — the mysterious professor from Malta who helped ignite the Russia probe in 2016 – and wants to know exactly who he was working for when he spoke with former Trump adviser George Papadopoulos.

It has long been suggested that Mifsud was connected to Russian intelligence. But Nunes, in a Friday letter obtained by Fox News, questions that assumption, saying Mueller’s report “omits any mention of a wide range of contacts Mifsud had with Western political institutions and individuals.”

Mifsud is a crucial figure in the report: Mueller’s report states that Mifsud was the one who told Papadopoulos in April 2016 that the Russians had “dirt” in the form of emails that could damage Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

As the story goes, Papadopoulos then told Australian diplomat Alexander Downer about his conversations with Mifsud. Downer then informed U.S. officials, leading the FBI to open its investigation into whether Trump associates were coordinating with Russia during the 2016 election.

In addition, the California Republican wants information regarding the FBI’s contacts with Mifsud, and specifically how agents knew to question Papadopoulos regarding Clinton’s emails if they had not already talked to Mifsud.

Nunes — now ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee after being its chairman for the first two years of the Spygate probe — said, “It’s still a mystery how the FBI knew to ask Papadopoulos specifically about Hillary Clinton’s emails.”

Right; it’s as if the bureau knew to ask because it was all…preplanned?

Nunes sent his letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Central Intelligence Agency Director Gina Haspel, National Security Agency Director Paul Nakasone and FBI Director Chris Wray. In it, he requests they provide all information they have on Mifsud by May 10.

Nunes, in the letter, also provides photographic evidence of Mifsud in close proximity to influential Western political and government officials, Fox Newsnoted.

“If Mifsud has extensive, suspicious contacts among Russian officials as portrayed in the special counsel’s report, then an incredibly wide range of Western institutions and individuals may have been compromised by him, including our own State Department,” Nunes wrote.

Importantly — and this goes directly to POTUS Trump’s reluctance to simply declassify everything, we’re sure — Nunes added, “In fact, this could entail a major scandal for U.S. and allied governments.”Mifsud disappeared from the public’s eye after his name began appearing in news reports.
