Note the Statement of Offense justice.gov/file/1007346/d… states "traveling in Italy"
GP met Mifsud at (Link) University in Rome. "He took a liking to me right away. He was introduced to me as somebody who could help me organize meetings with the Russians..."
GP "My understanding is he brought up Russia"
As it was later explained to him?? Who explained it to him? Where was GP? IS that just a weird turn of phrase?
GP Jake, Ive uh according to public documents today it seems that there were many there were a lot of tradecraft, spy craft going on around my life during that time
GP was not in Rome for that conference.
GP said Mifsud was introduced as someone who could help him meet Russians. Mifsud's attorney said that was Mifsud's mission.
