When Bill and Hillary Clinton have a problem, that problem often seems to disappear.
Joseph Misfud was alleged to have ‘dirt’ on Hillary. Now, he’s gone – POOF!
Check it out…
The man at the center of a key allegation in the Russian investigation has suddenly “vanished,” according to a new report by CNN. Joseph Mifsud, the academic who supposedly promised former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos some “dirt” on Hillary Clinton from Russian sources via leaked emails, “has gone to ground” after publicly denying that he had ever “spoke of secrets regarding Hillary Clinton.”
“Last Thursday [Mifsud] disappeared from the private university in Rome where he teaches,” CNN reports. “Repeated attempts to reach him since have been unsuccessful, though he appears to have read some messages from CNN.”
In its report, CNN details Mifsud’s sketchy dealings, which include several false and exaggerated claims about his own status and connections, and warnings from his associate “about the danger of being played by the Russians.”
Mifsud became a central figure in the Russia investigation after being identified by Papadopoulos as “Foreign Contact 1,” the man with Russian connections that enticed him with offers of damaging information on Clinton. CNN reports:
In the US affidavit, Papadopoulos claims that Mifsud told him in April 2016 that the Russians had “thousands of emails” relating to Hillary Clinton.
Joseph Mifsud met with the Russian ambassador to the UK Alexander Yakovenko in May 2014.
An associate also told CNN that he repeatedly bragged about how Moscow had “compromising material” on the Clinton campaign in spring 2016, contradicting Mifsud’s assertion that he never talked about Russian “dirt” on the Democratic presidential bid.
More, via Western Journalism:
The account was corroborated by Mifsud in an interview last week with Italian newspaper La Repubblica, in which he referred to a discussion held with the FBI.
During the interview with the newspaper, Mifsud refuted the claim regarding the Clinton emails that Papadopoulos made in the affidavit.
“I absolutely exclude the fact that I spoke of secrets regarding Hillary Clinton,” Mifsud said.
Those were the last words Mifsud spoke in public about the subject, with CNN suggesting that the professor’s past actions are coming back full circle.
“Mifsud’s history of exaggerations, and his enthusiasm to be seen as an important player in demand at conferences the world over, may now be coming back to haunt him.”
How does a man associated with the Clintons suddenly disappear?
