It can now be said that the FBI’s Special Counsel Robert Mueller is hot on the trail of anyone who could have any possible connection to Nigel Farage, Roger Stone or anyone who could have been associated with Julian Assange of WikiLeaks, the conduit for the leaked emails to US media in 2016 which were hacked by Russians from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager’s computer systems.

A friend of Nigel Farage who had participated informally in President Donald Trump’s campaign, Ted Mallock was met by FBI agents as soon as his feet touched US soil at the Boston Logan Airport. He was questioned at the airport and then subpoenaed for further questioning by the FBI.

Here’s the rest of the story…

On March 30, 2018, Stephanie Kirchgaessner of the Guardian penned the following report, “FBI questions Ted Malloch, Trump campaign figure and Farage ally” (‘American once touted as possible ambassador to EU tells of being detained at Boston airport and subpoenaed by Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia inquiry”)

Excerpts:

“A controversial London-based academic with close ties to Nigel Farage has been detained by the FBI upon arrival in the US and issued a subpoena to testify before Robert Mueller, the special counsel who is investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.”

“Ted Malloch, an American touted last year as a possible candidate to serve as US ambassador to the EU, said he was interrogated by the FBI at Boston’s Logan airport on Wednesday following a flight from London and questioned about his involvement in the Trump campaign.”

“In a statement sent to the Guardian, Malloch, who described himself as a policy wonk and defender of Trump, said the FBI also asked him about his relationship with Roger Stone, the Republican strategist, and whether he had ever visited the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has resided for nearly six years.”

“In a detailed statement about the experience, which he described as bewildering and intimidating at times, Malloch said the federal agents who stopped him and separated him from his wife “seemed to know everything about me” and warned him that lying to the FBI was a felony. In the statement Malloch denied having any Russia contacts.”

“Malloch said he had agreed with the special counsel’s office that he would appear before Mueller’s grand jury in Washington DC on 13 April.”

“Malloch became a source of controversy in 2016 when he was floated in media reports as a possible US ambassador to the EU, following an aggressive campaign in which, according to several reports at the time, he promoted himself as a strong candidate. European officials, alarmed by the possible pick and his lack of diplomatic credentials, openly criticised Malloch, particularly after he compared the EU to the Soviet Union.”

“Malloch’s campaign for the diplomatic post came to an end after a report in the Financial Times detailed several apparently misleading claims made in Malloch’s autobiography, including that he was a fellow at Wolfson and Pembroke colleges at Oxford, that he had once been called a “genius” by Margaret Thatcher, and that he was the “first” to coin the phrase “thought leadership”.

    • Dear Suzanne,

      Let’s hope so. At least we know that the FBI’s Special Counsel Robert Mueller III is hard at work, uncovering every possible link. The question has always been, how did the Russian hacked emails that were leaked, get into the hands of Julian Assange and then how did he decide when and what to leak.

  1. Mueller leaving no Stone unturned, pun intended:

    Mueller asking if Trump knew about hacked Democratic emails before release –

    “Mueller’s investigators have asked witnesses whether Trump was aware of plans for WikiLeaks to publish the emails. They have also asked about the relationship between GOP operative Roger Stone and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and why Trump took policy positions favorable to Russia.”

    “The line of questioning suggests the special counsel, who is tasked with examining whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election, is looking into possible coordination between WikiLeaks and Trump associates in disseminating the emails, which U.S. intelligence officials say were stolen by Russia.”

    • Dear 1EarthUnited,

      The nexus is going to be between President Trump and Roger Stone. All those who knew them know that they were in regular contact. This means if Roger Stone is connected to Julian Assange, then President Trump knew about it.

      A Keith keeps mentioning, it is the same names who keep popping up. But this Mr. Malloch is a new one on me. What this story tells me is that the FBI were waiting for an opportunity to grab him whenever he hit US soil. They had their eye on his movements.

      Thanks for the reference.

      Hugs, Gronda

  2. Gronda, it is interesting that the same names of people who have dubious histories (Stone, Farage, Mannafort) keep cropping up. These men are not known for the integrity. Keith

    • Dear Keith,

      Somehow the Russian hacked emails ended up in the hands of Julian Assange and someone had to have given Mr. Assange instructions as when to release which emails.

      You are right in that the same players keep popping up, Nigel Farage, Roger Stone, Steve Bannon and now this other guy, Mr. Malloch. My money is on Roger Stone and/ or Nigel Farage.

      Hugs, Gronda

  3. The plot thickens, as they say in the movies. Every thread Mr. Mueller follows leads to 10 more, it seems, and opens a veritable Pandora’s box. I wonder if we will ever know the whole truth. As long as Mueller gets all his ducks lined up, comes up with enough evidence of criminal misconduct that is prosecutable on the part of Trump and all the other nasties involved, I will be satisfied. What an incredible mess! Hugs!!!
