George Papadopoulos — a low-level former 2016 Trump campaign aide — denied reports suggesting that Maltese professor, Joseph Mifsud, is dead.
“Lil Joey Mifsud is not sleeping with the fishes. More to come,” Papadopoulos tweeted in response to rumors that his former European contact had died.

Italian newspaper il Giornale sparked the rumors of Mifsud’s death by speculating on Dec. 20:
“There has been no trace of Mifsud since 31 October 2017 and now, as highlighted on InsideOver, a tragic suspect is winding through the corridors of the Agrigento court: Mifsud may be dead.
A hypothesis that sources of the prosecutor believe “80%” true: “The chances that he died confirm by the court are very high.”
Joseph Mifsud, who’s originally from Malta, was a professor at the London Academy of Diplomacy. Before he disappeared in late-2017, he was reportedly teaching at a private university in Rome.
Mifsud mysteriously vanished after his name was raised in connection with Robert Mueller’s failed “Russia-collusion” investigation.
In May 2016, George Papadopoulos — then a low-level Trump campaign aide — casually spouted off a self-aggrandizing lie in a London bar that Mifsud had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton.
Papadopoulos later confessed that he lied, but his boast was one of the triggers that led to the Obama FBI’s fruitless investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign.
In September 2018, Papadopoulos pled guilty to lying to the FBI when he bragged that his European contact (Joseph Mifsud) “had dirt” on Hillary. Papadopoulos allegedly used that lie as leverage to raise his profile inside the 2016 Trump presidential campaign.
Papadopoulos was sentenced to 14 days in jail for lying to the FBI. President Trump reacted by trashing Mueller for wasting $28 million in taxpayer money to sentence Papadopoulos — a low-level former campaign aide — to 14 days in jail.
Legal experts say the miniscule 14-day jail sentence was a damning indictment of what a colossal waste of time and money Mueller’s “Russia collusion” investigation was.

As for Joseph Mifsud, this is not the first time that rumors of his death have circulated. In September 2018, the Democratic National Committee speculated that Mifsud was dead after trying unsuccessfully to serve papers on Mifsud to compel him to testify in Mueller’s Russia collusion hoax.
In court filings, DNC lawyers wrote Mifsud “is missing and may be deceased.” No further details were provided.
The reason why the Obama FBI was even aware of Papadopoulos’ lie about Mifsud is because they repeatedly defrauded the FISA Court (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court) to illegally spy on 2016 Trump campaign aides Carter Page and George Papadopoulos.
The Obama FBI (under then-director James Comey) even used a “honey pot” to entrap Papadopoulos.
This week, FISA Court chief judge Rosemary Collyer trashed the Obama FBI for defrauding the FISA Court to obtain bogus warrants to illegally spy on Trump aides.
In an unprecedented public smackdown, Judge Collyer expressed shock and disgust at the abuses uncovered in the report by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz (an Obama appointee).

The IG report indicates that the Obama FBI intentionally acted in a corrupt manner to illegally spy on Trump campaign aides. A mountain of evidence suggests that the FBI knowingly and willfully misled the FISA Court.
This is problematic because FISA requests are approved almost 100% of the time because the judge relies on the good-faith representations of the FBI and CIA that the surveillance is necessary to protect national security.
Surveillance by government intelligence agencies is not supposed to be abused in order to illegally spy on political opponents.
Judge Collyer underscored in her volcanic beatdown of the Obama FBI: “The FISC expects the government to provide complete and accurate information in every filing with the Court.”
