Absolutely!!! However, local partisan interest has been unabated since the PN were kicked away from the national coffers, in two instances by ever increasing historical margins. The PN's 25 year long power era, characterised by institutionalised corruption, led to all these constant attempts at COVER-UP, by blowing even small matters to absurd heights. Is it any wonder many PN insider people, supporters, media and covertly associated sympathetic media houses (playing at being independent!) have lost a huge value from their credibility?

Mifsud served as Michael Frendo's personal assistant. Did he learn the ropes at Stamperija or around the PN's foreign office team? jacarandafm com news

I remember this Mifsud moving in the University inner clique and PN circles at the time of Malta's application to join the EU. One of the many Maltese opportunists and resourceful characters who always try to curry favor where the going is good. As long as these characters play the local blue and red pendulum or cippitatu game they often survive but the world outside our shores is much more dangerous whether it is Sicily, Russia,Panama or the USA.

I don't know about either of you, but to me it seems like there really is no divide when it comes down to Malta and Russia. The iron was hot enough to strike for our government given that the Russians have even infiltrated their way into American politics. Whether you wanted this or not, the last few years have been a clear indication that our culture is no longer functional given the international communist interest(s) by both the Chinese and the Russians who have put money in front of our faces and used our good name to soil everyone who opposes their uncontrollable authority. jacarandafm com

The point is even if all is true, these things happen, and are done by all citizens of the world. Even if it was reported that he is Maltese....These are international intricacies. No one knows in what other sagas private Maltese citizens are involved. And no one should care much neither, other than tabloidal interest. If it was not a Maltese, it could have been a French or an Italian, as an example. What would any one think the French would have done, beat their chests. Small country, small minds really.

I had some contacts with Joseph Mifsud when he worked for Foreign Minister Michael Frendo and I was ambassador to the Council of Europe in Strasbourg. I was impressed by Mifsud’s ability to boast and project a larger-than-life image of himself. He definitely has talents. He also has the ability to make his interlocutors into believe that his talents are a multiple of what they really are. I would not be surprised if, talking to Mifsud, Papadopoulos concluded that Mifsud’s contacts, knowledge and outreach could lead him to the treasure trove of information he was looking for. Indeed Mifsud’s CV (available on http://www.europarl.europa.eu/meetdocs/2009_2014/documents/afet/dv/201/201101/20110126_3_cv_mifsud_en.pdf), is a reflection of the man. If I were interviewing him for a job I would ask him to explain, and be more specific about, the following high-sounding phrases in his CV : «Joseph Mifsud is the President… more than two hundred academic institutions … enhance the cooperation between higher education institutions, contribute to the intercultural dialogue, stimulate the mobility of professors and students and build a challenging and innovative teaching and learning environment … Our objective is to create a network of specialised postgraduate study programmes … International comparability will be ensured … Mifsud is also considered as one of the pioneers in the setting up of EuroMediterranean Professional School … gain international and intercultural experience... Joseph Mifsud has worked, cooperated with and taught extensively in a number of Universities and countries in the Mediterranean and in the world… He was the prime mover of Malta's entry into the EU from the Educational point of view … He has also served in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Malta and represented Malta… In the course of his career he has also participated and/or coordinated most of the Euro-Mediterranean initiatives in higher education organised in the region… Mifsud was also one of the experts in the think tank for the G8 meetings… He currently chairs the Conseil d'Orientation Scientifique … and has chaired a number of conferences in Europe and the Mediterranean.»

Once you peel back the hysteria, the entire Papadopoulos story is "A low-level Trump campaign staffer wanted to arrange a meeting with someone who claimed to be related to Putin, but the meeting never happened". Think about how unimpressive that is.

It's not an overreaction, I did say "could be ". If the collusion, interference is true,then it's the first time in recent American history where the democratic voting has been interfered with by another country,an enemy . Personally I think it's great, the boot is on the other foot, no regime change, assassination, colour revolution,etc was needed, just $100000 on FB ads, and the release of hacked emails.. The investigation into Trump has moved to another level, charges brought against people close to him, Muller is looking to flip someone, so they tell all, for now they are moving their way up, through people close to Trump. Muller and his team are clutching at straws, I'd say there is no concrete evidence ,even in the so called Steele dossier, but that doesn't mean they will let this go, unless Trump makes a deal,like we saw other week with the JFK files. The thing is, the Russians are very good at this, they know how to hide their tracks and put out deflecting news..

Mifsud, who once served as personal assistant to then foreign minister Michael Frendo, is believed to have introduced Papadopoulos to a Russian who said he was close to officials at the Russian foreign affairs ministry. Mifsud had once addressed a news conference with Labour leader Joseph Muscat ' The professor 's motto is ' VIVA CHE REGNIA '

Fake news as usual. This indictment has nothing to do with the US election. Gates and Manafort are being accused of acting as unregistered agents of the Ukrainian government, hiding tens of millions of dollars in income for that work from the U.S. government, and laundering the proceeds.

Rocking the foundation of America, let's not overreact. There is nothing that deals with Trump here, as I said, it's a low-level staffer trying to push something that never even happened. I am finding it hard to know how someone who, according to his enemies, colluded for years with Russia needs to have two people talk up a low-level staffer simply so he can ask to arrange meetings with Russians. Then he's shot down. And this proves Russian collusion?

Edward Caruana, 57, formerly a chief canvasser of education minister Evarist Bartolo, will be charged in court on Monday over allegations of fraud and corruption in public procurement. With your same reasoning, the Education Minister Saliba is a culprit in the allegations of fraud and due to the Minister is a close aid of the Prim Minister he is a culprit dur to association. We can go further and say that all those that worked with caruana at FTS are all guilty and so forth. Get a life! Everybody is a father of someone, a son of someone a friend of someone and colleague of someone and so forth. We might as well put everyone in jail, you included as along the line you had a friend who evaded taxes which makes you a tax evader!

It's probably not a big deal for you, but this whole Trump -Russian collusion is to a certain group of people who still can't believe Trump won. A Maltese guy is now involved in what could be one of the biggest cases to rock the foundations of America, Malta Today is just doing what they do, reporting the news.. Of course they are going to run with the headline "Maltese" in it..

You tried to brand him as PN and I am just telling you that if he appeared alongside Joseph Muscat during the election campaign, he is not PN. The number of times he did so is irrelevant. In an election campaign you support the candidates you prefer. But you don't seem to want to understand that. Who was the first person who called you Crackers? Wise observation.

It is irrelevant to the story!!! What has his birthplace to do with any connection he might have had, which as Sansone reports: "Mifsud told the Washington Post that he had "absolutely no contact" with the Russian government." Of course, if your ultimate intention is to damage the Administration and consequently Malta's economy, then you would bring in this extremely unimportant fact. NO OTHER RESPONSIBLE MEDIA DID THAT, naturally except the local partisan media. So much for fair and independent and responsible reporting. HUH!

So let me get this straight. Some professor nobody cares about, met with some low-level Trump staffer, whose idea for Trump meet the Russian was shot down by the Trump campaign itself. The meeting never happened. And the title MaltaToday goes by is: "Maltese professor was link between Russians and Donald Trump's campaign team"????? "He was even applauded by the supervisor for the work done."... I mean seriously, why are you outright misleading people, Sansone? This is dishonest. You rely on people not reading the indictment you linked, where it says the staffer acted alone and the Trump campaign rejected the meeting. It's like if some Mafia boss asks your intern to meet you, you never meet him, and the headline is "Links found between the Mafia and your Company".
