Have you ever heard the name – Joseph Mifsud?
I hadn’t, but he seems to be the origination or the primary source that led to the FBI investigation into the alleged Russia-Trump collusion issue.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) happens to be the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee and he is exploring all avenues to learn as much as he can about the infamous Mifsud.
Nunes has contacted the FBI, CIA, State Department and the NSA, requesting everything they have on Mifsud.

Nunes search for Mifsud stems from the Mueller report, who identifies him as Maltese professor who Mueller portrayed as a Russian asset.
The Epoch Times – Nunes Seeks Documents on Maltese Professor at Genesis of Russia Probe – House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) is looking to learn more about Joseph Mifsud, the mysterious Maltese professor whose statements reportedly trace back to the origin of the FBI’s Russia-collusion investigation.
Nunes wrote a letter (pdf) on May 3 to the heads of the FBI, CIA, the State Department, and the National Security Agency requesting all documents related to Mifsud.
In the indictment against Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, special counsel Robert Mueller portrayed Mifsud as a Russian asset. In the letter, Nunes points to evidence of Mifsud’s extensive ties to Western governments and intelligence, including the U.S. Department of State and the FBI. Nunes argues that Mifsud’s true allegiance should be ascertained.
“If Mifsud has extensive, suspicious contacts among Russian officials as portrayed in the Special Counsel’s report, then an incredibly wide range of Western institutions and individuals may have been compromised by him, including our own State Department,” Nunes wrote…
How does Mifsud fit into the Russian collusion picture?
Supposedly, in April 2016, Mifsud told Trump associate George Papadopoulos that Russia had thousands of emails that provided dirt on Hillary Clinton.
Papadopoulos then told Alexander Downer, an Australian diplomat what Mifsud had told him.
Downer then told US authorities which in turn caused the FBI to launch their investigation into Russian collusion.
