Last November “Professor” Joseph Mifsud emerged as a key figure in the Trump/Russia affair — a middleman who provided George Papadopoulos, one of Trump’s foreign policy advisers, with Russian contacts and told him the Russians had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton in the form of “thousands of emails”.
Maltese-born Mifsud, who has since disappeared, is a puzzling figure — an active networker who had multiple links to universities and other “educational” bodies but appears to have done little academic work himself.
Since Mifsud’s role in the American election came to light I have written more than a dozen articles investigating his many connections — especially in Britain and Russia. For the convenience of readers I have compiled links to all the articles here:
