The wife of former Trump adviser George Papadopoulos has garnered much attention for her media appearances in which she proclaimed that Papadopoulos was set up by the FBI and other allied intelligence agencies. She is the leading voice behind the conspiracy theory that the Maltese professor who told Papadopoulos about dirt on Hillary Clinton was actually working for Western intelligence. Mangiante worked for the Professor from September-November 2016, according to her own accounts.
