Papadopoulos’ Russian Contact Has Just Been Linked To Brexit & Global Russian Political Interference

Former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty last month to lying to the FBI about his contacts with “London professor” Mifsud, who told Papadopolous in early 2016 that the Russian government had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton, in the form of “thousands of emails.”

In what is undoubtedly a shocking new development, Boris Johnson, British foreign secretary, was photographed last month with Joseph Mifsud. Johnson was a strong advocate for Great Britain leaving the European Union leading up to last year’s vote on the issue. It is alleged that Mifsud was a key link between Russia and the Trump campaign.

The photograph above shows British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson with the “London professor” linked to special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian influence in the 2016 election.

This is big because we did not know about Mifsud’s connections to former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, until Mueller unsealed documents related to Papadopoulos’ guilty plea to the FBI. Mifsud was one of Papadopoulos’ main Russian contacts he spoke of to candidate Trump, Jeff Sessions, and the rest of the campaign.

These photos are significant because many have believed that Brexit, the popular term for the prospective withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, was heavily influenced by the Russians. The photos in and of themselves show that Mifsud is closely connected a strong advocate for Great Britain leaving the European Union.

Gavin Sheridan, and Irish reporter, first dug up this photo by searching through social media accounts he believed belonged to Russian actors described in Mueller’s probe. More of his posts can be seen below.
