The guilty plea of George Papadopoulos (no, not Webster's dad), where he signs off on a narrative summary admitting that he and other "high ranking" officials of the Trump campaign colluded with Russian government officials (or at least people they thought were) trying to get their hands on Hillary Clinton's emails. Those "high ranking officials" were not named, but I'm sure those indictments will follow.
This involvement came STRAIGHT FROM THE "FAKE DOSSIER". No matter how many times the Republicans claim 'the dossier is fake', charges keep coming from the information contained therein.
Former Trump campaign officials dismissed Mr. Papadopoulos as someone freelancing without campaign authorization.
“I was surprised to learn today what George Papadopoulos was up to during the campaign,” said J.D. Gordon, a Trump campaign national security adviser who worked under then-Sen. Jeff Sessions, who is now the attorney general
“He obviously went to great lengths to go around me and [Sen.] Sessions,” Mr. Gordon told The Washington Times. “Presidential campaigns are like that. I have been senior staff, senior advisers on three. Very hard to know what every single person is doing, especially since some folks deliberately go around the chain of command or circumvent it. George Papadopoulos obviously represents an extreme case.”
The Mueller filing said that Mr. Papadopoulos was arrested last July on his arrival at Dulles International Airport. Since then, the former adviser “met with the government on numerous occasions to provide information and answer questions,” the document says.
The document does not disclose the information provided by Mr. Papadopoulos to Mr. Mueller’s prosecutors.
Mr. Papadopoulos is not mentioned in the Steele dossier on Mr. Trump, though it does accuse Trump people of working hand-in-hand with Russian intelligence to hack into Democratic Party computers.
The people named by Mr. Steele deny the charges and call the dossier fiction. A source close to the congressional inquiry told The Times that none of Mr. Steele’s Russia-Trump charges has been verified.
Just keep listening to the voices in your head. I might note that even if Trump or one of his higher staff had gone to a meeting, quite a few lawyers have opined that meeting foreign leaders or their underlings to hear opposition research is not a crime unless goobermint secrets were given away or some other treasonous thing occurred. The only thing Papadopoulos ran afoul of in his dealings is that he lied to an FBI agent. As usual the cover up is worse than the act that got the FBI's interest.
