Proof Boris DID meet ‘ Rus­sia in­ter­me­di­ary’

The Mail on Sunday - - Brexit: The Russia Connection -

BORIS JOHN­SON has been at the cen­tre of more than his fair share of em­bar­rass­ing pho­tos, but this one is more awk­ward than most.

It shows him with Pro­fes­sor Joseph Mif­sud, the mys­te­ri­ous Mal­tese aca­demic sus­pected by the FBI of be­ing a link be­tween Don­ald Trump’s cam­paign and Rus­sia. Last week, a For­eign Of­fice source said Mr John­son had ‘never know­ingly met this per­son… or ever heard of him’.

But yes­ter­day, af­ter this photo emerged of the pair at a Tory fundraiser last month, the source said: ‘He has his photo taken with count­less peo­ple he does not know.’
