Ted Malloch is a UK-based political scientist and longtime Trump supporter.
Malloch, who has ties to Nigel Farage, was detained by FBI investigators in March 2018 at Logan International Airport in Boston. He was served with a subpoena from the special counsel, and was reportedly questioned about his ties to former Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone and Wikileaks. During the transition, Malloch told reporters that he had been a consultant for Trump’s campaign, and that he was in consideration for the position of U.S. Ambassador to the EU. The Trump administration later denied these claims. In November 2018, a leaked plea deal reportedly offered to Jerome Corsi by the special counsel revealed that in July 2016, Stone contacted Corsi and directed him to go to the Ecuadorian embassy in London to see WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and to “get the pending [WikiLeaks] emails.” Corsi passed this request along to Malloch, instructing him to “see” Assange. A little more than a week later, Corsi reportedly emailed Stone to tell him that WikiLeaks had damaging information on Hillary Clinton that would be released in October. Malloch has denied visiting the Ecuadorian embassy, and has not been accused of any wrongdoing.
