Special Counsel Robert Mueller alleges that Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud lied to the FBI about the timing of his contacts with Trump campaign volunteer George Papadopoulos, according to The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross.

Ross also points out another report about Mifsud from an Italian newspaper which revealed the professor went into hiding for months after he was connected to Papadopoulos and lived in an apartment in Rome owned by Link International. That company, Ross notes, “controls Link Campus, a university in Rome that partners closely with Western intelligence agencies.”

The Daily Caller reporter writes:

The developments raise several questions about Mifsud, including whether he is more closely affiliated with Russia or with the West.

It is also not clear why Mifsud was not charged in the Mueller probe.

The report does not discuss whether charges were considered against the Maltese mystery man. But his treatment is in contrast with how the Mueller team handled Papadopoulos. The former Trump aide pleaded guilty in October 2017 to making false statements to the FBI about Mifsud during an interview Jan. 27, 2017.
