May be deceased / contacts book

"Missing Link In Papadopoulos Conspiracy "May Be Deceased"" (Durden).  He'll reappear after the next American presidential election.  Tweets by Rising serpent describe a bizarre situation that could be put in the Big Encyclopedia of Espionage under 'honey trap'.  Rising serpent notes that Mangiante moved in European social democrat circles.  14 Days.  "Simona Mangiante, George Papadopoulos’ Wife: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know".  Despite the name, she appears to be Russian.

"The boss, the boyfriend and the FBI: the Italian woman in the eye of the Trump-Russia inquiry" (my emphasis in red):
"A native of Caserta, near Naples, she insists that she never played a part in Mifsud’s murky world. But she acknowledged to the Guardian that she may have inadvertently been sucked into a Russian intelligence plot.
Long before Mifsud and Papadopoulos ever met, it was Mangiante who was introduced to the mystery professor while she was working in Brussels, in the European parliament, as an attorney specialising in child abduction cases.
She was introduced to Mifsud in about 2012 by Gianni Pittella, a well-known Italian MEP who in 2014 became president of the Socialists and Progressive Democrats group. “I always saw Mifsud with Pittella,” she says. Pittella had no comment.
Mangiante worked for two high-powered European parliament officials, Mairead McGuinness – a vice-president – and McGuinness’s Italian predecessor Roberta Angelilli. She was also an administrator to the home affairs committee under the presidency of Martin Schulz, then a German MEP and now the leader of Germany’s Social Democrats.
When her contract expired, Pittella suggested she go to work for Mifsud in London, a city she loved. The professor offered her a job in 2016 at the important-sounding London Centre of International Law Practice. She was recruited, she now thinks, because of her extensive Brussels “contacts book”."
And she played Bridgette Bardot in a 2018 movie. If she's a Russian spy she's one of the all time greats, having carved a swath through much of Europe.

Another romantic interest of  Papadopoulos:  "‘Putin’s Niece,’ Olga Polonskaya, Disappears From the Internet".
