Stephan Roh—the lawyer for Joseph Mifsud, a central figure of the #MuellerInvestigation—denied a slew of alleged connections to Russia, though has acknowledged some.

(Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/mifsuds-lawyer…
In April 2016, #Mifsud allegedly told a Trump campaign aide that #Russians had “thousands of emails” of #HillaryClinton.

This info was ultimately used by the #FBI to open a counterintelligence investigation that involved extensive #Spying on Trump campaign staff.
#Mueller took over the probe in 2017 and after 22 months concluded that the investigation didn’t establish that President #DonaldTrump or anybody from his team conspired or coordinated with #Russia’s efforts to meddle in the 2016 election.
As #Mifsud’s name emerged in media reports in 2017, Roh put forward a claim that Mifsud was likely a Western intelligence asset used to connect the Trump campaign to #Russia.

While Mifsud denied being an agent, he was indeed rubbing shoulders with…
…the Western political, diplomatic, security, and even counter-terrorism circles, including with former Italian interior minister #VincenzoScotti.

There’s also some evidence that Scotti supervised or at leasast w aware of Mifsud’s contacts in #Russia. theepochtimes.com/mueller-report…
#Mifsud also rubbed shoulders with former #British prosecutor Arvinder Sambei, who used to work with the @FBI on counter-terrorism extradition cases. theepochtimes.com/mueller-overlo…
Meanwhile, media scrutinized #Roh’s background, finding he ran several businesses, and has offices in #Switzerland, #Germany, #London, #HongKong, mainland #China, #Russia, #Monaco, and the #UAE.

Of particular interest to many media were contacts #Roh may have had with #Russia.
#Roh has been open about his sympathies for #Russia.

His wife is a #Russian fashion designer and he’s been pursuing business in Russia too. He’s rejected, however, speculation about a more extensive Russian involvement in his business ventures.
Between Dec 2011 and Oct 2016, Roh’s company acted as a legal representative, to Helena Investments, a UK investment company that became the owner of small #Russian oil investor Finrusinvest.

Roh said he only got a “small service income” for the work with Helena.
In 2005, #Roh bought a small resource company, Severnvale Nuclear Services, from #British nuclear scientist John Harbottle.

Roh said he used Severnvale for a “new opportunity” to partner with #Swiss and #German “established well known commodity traders”—no #Russians or uranium…
…involved. He declined to name the partners.

“A trading contract can easily generate millions,” he said, noting that his margin was about 10% so the resulting profit was not “exciting.”

As for the lack of employees, he said the company was backed by his energy consultancy.
#Roh’s name has recently popped up in the media after US Attorney John #Durham reportedly requested a recorded deposition that #Mifsud entered with Roh in May 2018.

Roh said he provided the deposition to Durham’s team as well as some #Congress members.
#AGBarr told #Congress in April about his intent to review “both the genesis and the conduct of intelligence activities directed at the Trump campaign during 2016.

#Durham’s investigation is most likely a part of that effort.
