Michael Flynn's legal counsel says phones that belonged to Joseph Mifsud likely contain exculpatory evidence
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has obtained two phones of Joseph Mifsud, one of the central figures of the 2016 Russia investigation, and the lawyer of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn has requested them, saying they likely contain exculpatory evidence.
The phones, two BlackBerry models, only recently came into the governments possession, said Flynns lawyer, Sidney Powell, a former prosecutor, in an Oct. 15 court filing (pdf).
Data and metadata on the phones is material, exculpatory, and relevant to the defense of Mr. Flynn, she said.
Mifsud allegedly told a Trump campaign aide in April 2016 that Russians had dirt on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the form of thousands of emails. This information was ultimately used by the FBI to open a counterintelligence investigation that involved extensive spying on Trump campaign staff.
Mifsuds lawyer, Stephan Roh, confirmed to The Epoch Times that the DOJ obtained the cellphones and said he was informed that Mifsud used them to communicate with at least one person in the U.S.
I was also told that it was possible to retrieve a lot more data and information from the phones, he said.
Neither Roh nor Powell would say how they learned about the phones or who gave them to the DOJ.
It isnt clear how Mifsud obtained the phones, although Powell wrote in an Oct. 15 tweet that the phones had been given to Mifsud to use.
Of course, pretty sure bad actors knew of them previouslycertainly the operation that gave them to him! Powell wrote.

Wiped clean with a cloth?
Wouldnt be surprised if phones get misplaced.
Its also legal to destroy them with a hammer...
A thing like that could ruin your whole day.
Hope Fort Marcy Park wasn’t planning on using any of the dirt paths or areas around old cannons for the next six months.
Do the serial numbers match the ones lost by Hillary?
The FBI will DESTROY THEM!
