WARNING: Italy was NOT one of the SEVEN allied nations that helped us ward off Russia's attack by supplying us with intel. Italy OPPOSES sanctions on Russia; the Italian ambassador went to a secret Trump VIP event in April 2016 with the Russian ambassador.  https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/apr/13/british-spies-first-to-spot-trump-team-links-russia 

WARNING2: Throughout the Mueller Report, Italy is cast as the country in Europe (alongside Hungary and Greece) in which Russia is MOST comfortable running its covert operations. Bill Barr working with Italian intelligence should NOT comfort any one of us. Italy is a RUSSIAN ally.

WARNING3: Most of Russia's contacts with Trump agents happened in Italy or the UK. Now Russia has just made contact with a Trump agent (Barr) again by getting its allies in Italian intelligence to give Barr undoubtedly false testimony from a Kremlin agent. This is...beyond words.
