Oh boy. Looks like they actually had their first guilty plea at the beginning of the month.

Former Trump Foreign Policy Adviser Pleaded Guilty in Mueller Probe


A former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, George Papadopoulos, secretly pleaded guilty as part of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Bloomberg News' Tom Schoenberg reports.

Papadopoulos had suggested that Donald Trump meet with top Russian leaders during the campaign. He pleaded guilty to making false statements during an interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

BREAKING: Former Trump campaign advisor George Papadopolous has pleaded guilty to making false statements to FBI agents.



10:15 AM - 30 Oct 2017


Papadopolous was described by President Trump as an "energy adviser" and an "excellent guy." Now this happened back on October 5. Furthermore, CNN is reporting that he was actually arrested back in July upon returning to the US from abroad. (no source for that yet)

EDIT to add:

To refresh your memories...

Russia Update: Trump Campaign Official Under Investigation


Papadopoulos sent an email to seven officials on the Trump campaign titled “Meeting with Russian Leadership - Including Putin,” according to a report from The Washington Post in August. He attempted to arrange a meeting between the Trump team and “Russian leadership to discuss US-Russia ties under President Trump.”

In ensuing months, he continued to request more meetings via email, according to The Washington Post. When Buzzfeed News asked Warren when the committee planned to interview Papadopoulos, he said, “He is not often in the country.”

Papadopoulos first worked as an adviser to the Ben Carson campaign before switching to the Trump team in May 2016, according to a previous report by Newsweek. During the election, Trump revealed his name as one of the advisers for his foreign policy team to the Washington Post in March 2016.


That's a recap from about a week ago when it was reported by Newsweek that Papadopolous was a person of interest in the Senate probe.

EDIT #2:

Papadopolous indictment here. Reading it now.

He's the one in the indictment listed as the other that Manafort and Gates persuaded to do so. Again...nothing relating to Trump knowing anything and all Manafort.

Either way, the indictment goes back to 2006-2014 for the meat and majority of its charges....and Trump wasn't doing any political dealings or lobbying then, but I do know some who were!

It ain't going to be that simple my friend. While Manafort left the campaign in August of 2016, Rick Gates hung around. He hung around for the transition, he was part of AFP, he went to work with Trump's buddy Tom Barrack and he's been making visits to the White House.

Uh Papadopoulos lied to the fbi and was used as an informant most likely for two months.

Well he's a pretty light weight player, so maybe he can be the lettuce on the nothingburger.


Oh, oh Manafort's pretty stinky he can be the cheese, his buddy Gates cheese grease.

It bears repeating: don't talk to the FBI. If they ask "how's the weather" don't answer. If they ask "how are you doing today" don't answer.

If they can't get you on a substantive crime they'll get you on a process crime (lying, obstruction). Their job is not to exonorate people, it's to convict them.

So, a hopeful presidential candidate is not allowed to discuss foreign policy with a foreign government official-even if meetings are disclosed-but the details can't be kept private as it is an election?

And all the other disgustingly dirty politicos for other candidates and their dastardly deeds don't get indicted with plenty of evidence? for decades?

Nah, nothing dirty politics about that-especially with the highly moral Mueller.

I think we can assume that Trump did not otherwise he wouldn't have kept asking. However, he was making these suggestions three months before Don Jr's meeting.

That fact that he plead guilty three weeks ago bolsters my suspicion that the GOP push to focus attention to Clinton was triggered by knowledge that things were going down with the Mueller probe.

And you have to wonder how that might also relate to the recent uptick in calls for Mueller to step down.

And the sealed charges were leaked three days ago.

Wait till you see what happens at 3 oclock today............

For anyone not blinded by partisan liars, the recent push by the Republican Congress/RW media/their minions here and abroad to dredge up anything and everything to muddy the waters was clearly initiated by the knowledge of arrests and coming indictments.

If the Congress persists in this political theatre, we are going to have a Constitutional Crisis on our hands.

Howso?
This political theatre has been ongoing for at least 1 1/2 years now. How have we come to "a Constitutional Crisis"?

This is far more interesting than the obvious criminality of Manafort. Especially since Papadopolous may have been an informant since his arrest back in July.

More to come.

It just goes to show that the right has an organized system to push propaganda to the far reaches of the internet. I'm not sure how many of our resident ATSers are paid vs. simply useful idiots, but the system exists either way.

Is the "campaign supervisor" here a reference to Manafort?



So not really Putin's niece as he thought. Was the ambassador they were promising to hook him up with the Russian Ambassador to the UK (Alexander Vladimirovich Yakovenko)?

Looks like he introduced himself in a meeting — that included Trump himself — as somebody with the connections to arrange a meeting between Trump and Putin.

Plus several "members"?

Considering the scope of this mans duplicity (Putins Niece?), the charges against him are pretty light.

This man testified & is now considered a witness in an ongoing criminal investigation.
