Papadopoulous: Joseph Mifsud Was BRITISH Agent, Not Russian

One of the men at the center of the bogus Russian “collusion” narrative claimed that the person who originally engaged him regarding Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails was a British intelligence officer, not Russian as reported.

“To be clear: Australian media is reporting on air that ‘the professor’, Joseph Mifsud, the man who told me about ‘Clinton’s emails’, was not a Russian agent, but a British agent. If this is confirmed, this is the biggest scandal in modern political history,” George Papadopoulous said on Twitter.

If true, Papadopoulous is right. U.S. intelligence partnering with British intelligence in an attempt to entrap a staffer for a political opponent, making it appear as if the campaign was allied with a hostile foreign power, is indeed damning.

Mifsud has disappeared since he made international news as a supposedly-Russian agent who tipped off Papadopoulous, saying that he had “dirt” on the Clinton campaign. Papadopoulous held a meeting with Mifsud after the tipoff, which according to declassified memos, triggered the counterintelligence investigation into Trump and alleged collusion with Russia. That investigation eventually became special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe after Trump was elected.

Papadopoulous further clarified in another Tweet.

“If Australia’s highly respectable media is indeed correct in their reporting on the “professor”, I don’t think the US-UK security partnership will ever be the same. Very big problem for MI6 to be running operations against Americans and opposition presidential campaigns,” he said.
