Prof Joseph Mifsud, a suspected spy for Obama, has said that through his lawyers, that he is willing to testify before the US Senate. In September, lawyers for the DNC filed a lawsuit against Russia for interfering in the 2016 election.
They went on to say that they believed Prof Joseph Mifsud was dead. Or at least they hoped he was. He can shed a lot of light on the scheme to use George Papadopoulos to set up the Trump campaign. Mifsud has close ties to British intelligence that worked together with the Obama administration, along with other British intelligence assets, Christopher Steele and Alexander Downing.
Mifsud met with Papadopoulos in London during the 2016 presidential campaign. Papadopoulos was sentenced to two weeks in prison for lying to the FBI about his Russian contacts. The professor claimed the Russians had “dirt” on Clinton, and his conversation with Papadopoulos reportedly prompted the FBI investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Months later, WikiLeaks released emails stolen from Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta and other Democratic officials. An indictment from special counsel Robert Mueller alleged that Russia stole the emails and gave them to WikiLeaks, which released them in the weeks leading up to Election Day.
Federal prosecutors said in a court filing in August that Papadopoulos’ lies to the FBI about his contacts with Russians prevented authorities from potentially arresting Mifsud before he left the U.S.
Investigators had located Mifsud in Washington, D.C., two weeks after Papadopoulos was interviewed by the FBI in January 2017, the filing said. Mifsud then left the U.S. on Feb. 11, 2017, and has not returned.
He could give the Senate some valuable insight into why he went out of his way to make contact with Papadopoulos, after being recommended by known Obama spy, Stefan Halper.
