“The core of the conspiracy theory against Donald Trump has been that Joseph Mifsud had some ties to the Russian government, relaid information to Trump campaign member George Papadopoulos, and that set off this tide of the FBI investigatory trail,” explained in his opening Dan Bongino the host of ‘Hannity’ on Tuesday evening.
Bongino went on to point out that “Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his report said ‘Mifsud had Russian connections’ and that was far different from him being a Russian agent, what are we missing on that'” Bongino asked Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), a House Intelligence Committee ranking member.
“I have no idea whether Mifsud is a Russian asset or a Western intelligent asset, or a double agent…or what?” said Nunes. “All I know is that after $40 million, we still don’t know anymore than we knew before…and this is supposedly the guy who knew about Hillary Clinton’s emails.”
This is an excerpt from a previous story of mine on Papadopoulos and Joseph Mifsud:
Around the same time, a London professor named Joseph Mifsud, who has been in hiding since his name surfaced in the news, had already told Papadopoulos that the Russians had thousands of emails from Clinton that could expose her wrongdoing.
also introduces Papadopoulos to a Russian woman, who Mifsud claims later to be a niece of Putin. But Papadopoulos said he didn’t buy that claim either, saying she was an “obscure young girl…who barely spoke English to all of the sudden writing in fluent English in emails to me.”
