Kam Williams

“Echo in the Canyon”

Very Good (3 stars)

Rated PG-13 for suggestive content and drug references

Running time: 82 minutes

Production Companies: Mirror Films

Distributor: Greenwich Entertainment

In the wake of Beatlemania exploding across America in 1964, many aspiring musicians were inspired to start their own rock band. Some settled in Laurel Canyon, a low-rent suburb of L.A that resonated with the hippy’ philosophy.

Among those flocking to the region were future icons like Bob Dylan, Jackson Browne, Roger McGuinn, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Frank Zappa, Michelle Phillips and Cass Elliot. Some of these musicians forged great groups, like The Byrds, The Mamas and the Papas, and CSN&Y, while others became rock gods in their own right.

Now thanks to producer Lou Adler and Dylan’s son Jakob, we have a sensational rockumentary revisiting that era. The film features both archival concert footage and interviews with most of the above. What a treat it is to see Ringo Starr reveal how close he and David Crosby were back in the day! And how about Dylan’s discussing what it was like growing up in such a rich cultural environment? So, this makes for a magical walk down Memory Lane offering a fun ride for young and old alike.

The film’s only flaw rests with performances by several next generation artists such as Beck, Jade, and Jakob Dylan who prove to be talented, but inappropriate for a movie focused on that time period. Furthermore, Jakob serves as interviewer of his fellow celebs, a task for which he is woefully prepared.

Otherwise, what a wonderful trip to remind us all of a pivotal moment in U.S. history!

The Brooklyn Bridge: Michael Novakhov – SharedNewsLinks℠: James Comey calls Clinton ‘dirt’ tipster Joseph Mifsud a ‘Russian agent’

.

Former FBI Director James Comey made a bold assertion about the Hillary Clinton “dirt” tipster’s ties to Russia that goes further than what special counsel Robert Mueller said in his report about his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

In an op-ed on Tuesday, Comey referred to Joseph Mifsud as an “agent” of Russia.

“In April 2016, that adviser talked to a Russian agent in London, learned that the Russians had obtained ‘dirt’ on Hillary Clinton in the form of thousands of emails and that the Russians could assist the Trump campaign through the anonymous release of information damaging to Clinton,” Comey wrote in the Washington Post.

Comey did not name Mifsud, but Mifsud is known as a London-based professor and former Maltese diplomat who has long been suspected of deep ties to Russian intelligence. The original counterintelligence investigation into Trump’s campaign began in July 2016 after Papadopoulos repeated what he heard from Mifsud to Australian diplomat Alexander Downer, who informed the U.S. government.

Mueller repeatedly mentions Mifsud in his 448-page report, released last month with redactions, but does not call Mifsud an agent of Russia. The special counsel does say that Mifsud has “connections to Russia” and noted that he “traveled to Moscow in April 2016” and “met with high-level Russian government officials” while he was there before telling Papadopoulos in London about the Clinton “dirt.”

Mueller wrote that “Mifsud maintained various Russian contacts while living in London,” “offered to introduce Papadopoulos to European leaders and others with contacts to the Russian government,” and worked with two Russian nationals, including Russian International Affairs Council member Ivan Timofeev, to arrange a meeting between the Trump campaign and the Russian government that never came to pass.

Mifsud has been an elusive figure who has stayed out of the spotlight over the course of the 22-month Russia investigation, which found no criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, but in recent weeks he has been subject to renewed scrutiny by GOP investigators who believe he may be tied to Western intelligence.

Rep. Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, says Mifsud likely has links to “U.S., British, and Italian intelligence services” and accused Mueller’s team of deciding to “cherry-pick” information from news reports to portray him as a Russian agent, leaving out that he was described as a Western intelligence asset.

In anticipation of Trump’s trip to the United Kingdom next month, Nunes provided a list of questions to ask Prime Minister Theresa May, which touches on Mifsud. “Describe any communications or relationship, if any, Joseph Mifsud (potentially also known as Joseph di Gabriele) has had with British intelligence and any information the British government possesses about Mifsud’s connection to any other government or intelligence agency,” Nunes wrote to Trump last week.

Nunes also said the FBI has “something to hide” after sending two letters to the Central Intelligence Agency, the FBI, the National Security Agency, and the State Department asking for all documents they have on Mifsud, and all but the bureau cooperated.
