The liberal left is doing everything they can to push this phony Russian collusion story. Unfortunately for them, it is clear to every rational person that it’s a big nothing burger.
Democrats have latched on to an irrelevant and obscure Trump adviser named George Papadopoulos and Mueller was recently able to get him to plead guilty to lying.
From Fox News:
George Papadopoulos, a former foreign policy adviser to President Trump’s campaign, pleaded guilty earlier this month to making false statements to the FBI.
Papadopoulos, 30, was charged with willfully and knowingly making false statements to FBI agents regarding “the timing, extent and nature of his relationships and interactions with certain foreign nationals whom he understood to have close connections with senior Russian government officials,” according to court documents.
Papadopoulos was arrested on July 27 and pleaded guilty on Oct. 5.
Liberals are very excited about this news. However, it’s really got nothing to do with Trump and there is still zero evidence of Russian collusion.
Friday, an interesting story broke. One of the people that Papadopoulos met with, who allegedly promised ‘dirt’on Hillary, has disappeared.
From The Daily Wire:
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.”
Joseph Mifsud, the Maltese academic suspected of being a link between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, was once a regular on the foreign policy circuit, attending conferences the world over.
Now, after being identified as a key figure in the US special counsel investigation into Russian influence over the 2016 US presidential election, Mifsud has gone to ground.
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.
A strange story.
Why did he disappear? Is he trying to avoid the investigation?
We will have to wait and see.
