On the day Donald Trump’s former foreign-policy adviser George Papadopoulos was sentenced to two weeks in jail for lying to investigators about his contacts with a U.K. professor peddling dirt from Russian officials about Hillary Clinton, lawyers in an unrelated case raised the prospect the professor, Joseph Mifsud, may be dead.

The Democratic National Committee, which is suing Russia, the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks for interfering in the 2016 election, said in a court filing Friday that it believes all the defendants in the case have been served with the complaint, “with the exception of Mifsud (who is missing and may be deceased).” The lawyers didn’t elaborate.

If in fact this is true, and Putin had Mifsud “disappeared,” then it likely means that the Kremlin is covering their tracks and preparing to block investigations which might prove the Russian collusion.

And this is important since Trump’s approach to all of this is to assert that the investigation was inspired by the Steele dossier, which they claim has been discredited, and not the drunken ramblings of Papadopolous to that Austrailian diplomat as has been previously reported. 

Losing access to Mifsud means that the feds will have more trouble proving that Russia worked with the Trump campaign to use those hacked DNC emails to help their candidate win. 

They still might have the evidence to prove that case, but this shows the lengths to which the Russians might go to protect their asset in the White House. 

Manafort, Papadoplous, and Cohen might want to get themselves into the federal witness protection program just as soon as they can.

    Could this be why Manafort is suddenly willing to play “Let’s Make a Deal?”

    “Papadopoulos said he was at a campaign security team meeting on March 31, 2016 where the team discussed his proposal of a summit between then-candidate Trump and Russian President Putin.

    He said Senator Jeff Sessions liked the idea and was enthusiastic about his proposal for Trump-Putin summit.
    “Trump was open to this idea, and he deferred, of course, to then senior Senator Jeff Sessions, who I remember being quite enthusiastic,”
    ““All I can say is this is a meeting from about two years ago. My recollection differs from Jeff Sessions.”

    Papadopoulos also said that many people in the Trump campaign were aware of his work to set up meeting with Russians, such as campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, and professor Sam Clovis, a senior adviser to the campaign.

    And also, Papadopoulos said, there was Donald TRUMP him$elf, who was very well aware of what he was doing.”
