Arkancide? Man at the Center of Clinton ‘Dirt’ Claim Mysteriously Disappears

Joseph Misfud is the Maltese academic who told ex-Trump camp volunteer, George Papadopoulos in April of 2016 that he has ‘dirt’ on the Clintons, according to a U.S. affidavit.

Misfud is referred to as ‘Foreign Contact 1’ in the affidavit. He said the Russians have thousands of emails relating to Hillary Clinton.

Misfud disappeared three days after the affidavit was unsealed according to CNN.

CNN reported:

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.
Last Thursday he disappeared from the private university in Rome where he teaches. Repeated attempts to reach him since have been unsuccessful, though he appears to have read some messages from CNN.
But more details are emerging of the background and contacts of the man who emerged last week as “the professor” in court filings relating to charges brought against former Trump aide George Papadopoulos.
In the US affidavit, Papadopoulos claims Mifsued — referred to as “Foreign Contact 1” — told him in April 2016 that the Russians had “thousands of emails” relating to Hillary Clinton.
In an email to fellow colleagues, Papadopoulos wrote that he had a good friend in Russia who introduced him to Putin’s niece and a Russian ambassador. This ‘good friend’ of his turned out to be Misfud and he supposedly had tons of dirt on the Clintons.
CNN also reported last week, in his last words to the public before disappearing, Mifsud described Papadopoulos’ claim that he knew about Russia’s material on Clinton as “baloney.”
“I absolutely exclude the fact that I spoke of secrets regarding Hillary Clinton,” he told La Repubblica.
Papadopoulos was an unpaid volunteer in the Trump camp who was recently charged with making a false statement to the FBI. He was not charged with communicating to Russians since that is not a crime.
