Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) accused the FBI of "hiding" information on Joseph Mifsud, the Maltese professor that allegedly met with Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos to offer him "dirt" on Hillary Clinton.
"He is the first person that we know on earth that supposedly knows something about the Russians having Hillary's emails," Nunes told FOX News' Shannon Bream in an interview Monday. "He has since denied that but Mueller in his report claimed that Mifsud was or insinuated that Mifsud was some sort of Russian asset. Well, we know that this is not the case. In fact, we know that he was in the U.S. Capitol just months into the Russia investigation, just steps away from the House Intelligence Committee."
Nunes said it is impossible for Mifsud to be a Russian asset because he has a history of working with and training FBI agents.
"The FBI is not cooperating, per usual, which means they've got something to hide," Nunes said.
"It is impossible that Mifsud is a Russian asset," Nunes continued. "He is a former diplomat with the Malta government. He lived in Italy. He worked and taught FBI, trained FBI officials, and worked with FBI officials."
