We were all shocked when President Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was indicted on charges that he funneled millions of dollars through overseas shell companies and used the money to buy luxury cars, real estate, antiques and expensive suits.
Manafort surrendered to federal authorities in Washington, D.C. Monday morning after a grand jury approved the charges brought by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller Friday!
In addition to Manafort and Gate, former Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos was arrested for making false statements to FBI agents.
Papadopoulos was a volunteer whose repeated attempts to set up meetings between Trump’s camp and Russians were outright rejected. Who is this guy? Was he a plant?
Reporters are now saying Papadopoulos being a ‘proactive cooperator’ means he wore a wire for dirty cop Mueller.
Investigative reporter for USA Today covering law and justice, Brad Heath tweeted, “Mueller’s office said in a court filing that Trump aide George Papadopoulos “indicated that he is willing to cooperate with the government.”

Also, attorney Jordan Sekulow points out that Papadopoulos told the FBI he had been conversing with Russians and he even tried setting up a meeting with Russians. Since this isn’t a crime, he was only charged with lying to the FBI agents about some of the specifics.
But it gets more interesting, not only has he been lying to the FBI, he lied on his resume to get his job as a foreign policy aide.
Newsweek reports that one of Papadopoulos’ employers has noted huge inconsistencies in his Linkedin profile. His profile states that he worked as a research assistant at a conservative think tank, the Hudson Institute, for nearly five years, from 2011-2015.
In reality, Papadopoulos was a lowly unpaid intern in 2011 and later worked as a contractor in 2013 and 2014. Then, with his trumped-up resume, Papadopoulos was picked up by the Ben Carson campaign. Carson’s campaign manager Barry Bennet had this to say about his former employee:
“Here’s this 28-year-old kid who is not terribly sophisticated, but he solved my problem of needing to put a bunch of names on a list.”
“I’m sure he wrote some things for us, but I don’t know that we used any of it.”
Papadopoulos was later picked up by the Trump campaign, during that time he contacted a Russian professor in order to obtain “dirt” on the Clinton campaign.
President Trump, for his part, has disavowed Papadopoulos and his work for the campaign, saying:
….came to the campaign. Few people knew the young, low level volunteer named George, who has already proven to be a liar. Check the DEMS!

Mueller’s charges ironically prove his witch hunt isn’t based on U.S. law. Rather, his entire investigation is a witch hunt spurred by Hillary Clinton’s $9 million fake Russia dossier.
This is the weirdo that Mueller is using to take down Trump.
According to the plea agreement, Papadopoulos was arrested on July 27th and signed his deal with the Feds October 5th. The public was unaware of this since the records were sealed.
Papadopoulos may have been wearing a wire and working for the Feds for the last few months.
Mueller’s witch hunt must be shut down. It is out of control and unconstitutional.
