From late 2016 through late 2017, the liberal media narrative surrounding alleged electoral collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government centered on a FISA court warrant against a marginal Trump campaign figure named Carter Page, a U.S. businessman with ties to Russia.
But in late 2017 the media narrative suddenly shifted away from Page and toward another marginal Trump campaign figure, George Papadopoulos, who was allegedly offered “dirt” on Hillary Clinton by a U.K. professor with links to Russia. That professor, Joseph Mifsud, who serves as something of a linchpin to the entire Trump/Russia collusion narrative, is missing and is now believed to be dead, according to a court filing.
The news of Mifsud’s presumed death was revealed in a court filing Friday from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) which noted that DNC attorneys had been unable to serve Mifsud with a complaint as part of the DNC’s ridiculous lawsuit against the Trump campaign, the Russian government and WikiLeaks.
In a court filing on Friday, the DNC lawyers asserted that “with the exception of Mifsud (who is missing and may be deceased),” all of the named defendants in their lawsuit had been served with a copy of the complaint.
The U.K. Independent reported that the 57-year-old professor at Stirling University, who was originally from the island of Malta, has allegedly been missing since November 2017, right around the time his name began to pop up in media reports about Papadopoulos, who’d been indicted for lying to the FBI and Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation about his contacts with Russia-linked individuals.
Papadopoulos just received a 14-day jail sentence for that crime, a significantly shorter sentence than the six months Mueller’s team had requested.
Papadopoulos was alleged to have met with Mifsud in 2016, who is alleged to have offered the Trump campaign “thousands of emails” that would incriminate Clinton via the professor’s “substantial connections with Russian government officials.”
It was further alleged that Mifsud had arranged meetings between Papadopoulos and two individuals purported to be influential Russian figures, a woman named Oleg who falsely claimed to be Russian President Vladimir Putin’s niece and a man named Ivan Timofeev who was purported to be connected to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Missing, presumed dead
Mifsud is believed to have gone missing in November 2017, shortly after Mueller unveiled his indictment against Papadopoulos and others. The last known sighting of him was in Rome, Italy, when he took part in an interview with Italian media outlet La Republica on Nov. 1, in which he disputed the allegations against him as “nonsense,” though he did admit to having met with Papadopoulos “three or four times.”
However, Mifsud hasn’t been heard from since that interview, either by Italian prosecutors seeking him on unrelated matters or his Ukrainian fiancee, who reportedly gave birth to their daughter this year but hasn’t seen or heard from him in months.
If Mifsud truly is dead, it will likely forever remain unclear exactly what sort of role he played in the 2016 election — notably, whether he really did attempt to facilitate the exchange of “dirt” on Clinton between Russia and the Trump campaign, or whether he was actually a Western intelligence “cut-out” who set up Papadopoulos and the Trump campaign to be linked to Russia for purposes of the FBI and Democrat plot to play up Russian links to bring down Trump.
His disappearance is suspicious, considering how integral he has become to the collusion narrative, and how his testimony would almost certainly either confirm or completely destroy that narrative.
