Papadopoulos Never Told Trump Campaign Of Kremlin “Dirt” On Hillary

In a Friday night court filing trying to spare their client from a lengthy prison sentence, attorneys for George Papadopoulos claim that he never told the Trump campaign about claims of Kremlin “dirt” on Hillary Clinton, and that a month before he knew about said dirt, Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions positively responded to a March, 2016 proposal that the young energy consultant facilitate a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Eager to show his value to the campaign, George announced at the meeting that he had connections that could facilitate a foreign policy meeting between Mr. Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. While some in the room rebuffed George’s offer, Mr. Trump nodded with approval and deferred to Mr. Sessions who appeared to like the idea and stated that the campaign should look into it.

Other attendees at that meeting, “including former Pentagon spokesman J.D. Gordon, say that Sessions shut down Papadopoulos’ suggestion,” according to the Daily Caller‘s Chuck Ross. Sessions himself testified in November 2017 that he “pushed back” against the proposal.

A month later at an April 26, 2016 breakfast in London, Papadopoulos learned from Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud (who bragged last year that he was on the Clinton Foundation – and has been missing since October 2017), that Moscow possessed “dirt” on Hillary Clinton.

According to Papadopoulos’s Friday night court filing – he never told this to the Trump campaign, while continuing to push for a Trump-Putin meeting.

Papadopoulos lied to FBI agents in a January 27, 2017 interview – claiming that Mifsud told him about the “dirt” on the Clinton campaign before he joined the Trump campaign. He also told federal investigators that he never revealed this to anyone within Trump’s orbit:

“He told the agents he was unaware of anyone in the campaign knowing of the stolen Hillary Clinton emails prior to the emails being publicly released,” reads the Friday night court filing.

Papadopoulos would later tell the Greek Foreign Minister about the Kremlin “dirt” on Clinton, as well as Australian diplomat Alexander Downer at a May 10, 2016 London dinner in which he “drunkenly” admitted that Russia had information that could hurt Trump’s opponent. The FBI claims it was the meeting with Downer which resulted in the agency opening a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign on July 31, 2016.

Lawyers for Papadopoulos also argue that he didn’t hamper the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling – and only “misled investigators to save his professional aspirations and preserve a perhaps misguided loyalty to his master.”

“In his hesitation, George lied, minimized, and omitted material facts. Out of loyalty to the new president and his desire to be part of the administration, he hoisted himself upon his own petard.”

Friday’s filing also reveals new details about the FBI’s initial interview with Papadopoulos. According to Papadopoulos’s lawyers, FBI agents showed up to interview Papadopoulos at his mother’s house in Chicago.

The agents asked Papadopoulos to accompany them to their office to answer “a couple questions” about “a guy in New York that you might know[,] [t]hat has recently been in the news.”

Papadopoulos believed that the agents wanted to ask him about Sergei Millian, a Belarus American businessman who is alleged to be a major source in the Steele dossier. Millian approached Papadopoulos in July 2016 and the pair met several times during the presidential campaign. –Daily Caller

FBI agents reportedly assured George that the focus of the discussion would be on Sergei Millian – however the conversation quickly turned to the Russian “dirt.”

Less than twenty minutes into the interview, the agents dropped the Millian inquiry and turned to recent news about Russian influence in the presidential election. George told the agents he had no knowledge of anyone on the campaign colluding with the Russians and it would not have been in anyone’s interest to undermine the democratic process. George was surprised to be answering questions about Russian interference in the election and told the agents the topic caught him off guard. The FBI agent confirmed that the Sergei Millian inquiry was just a ruse to get him in a room when he told George that:”

… the reason we wanted to pull you in today and have that conversation because we wanted to know to the extent of your knowledge being an insider inside that small group of people that were policy advisors who, if anybody, has that connection with Russia and what, what sort of connections there were.

  1. Even if the Russians did share dirt on Hillary, so what? That is NOT a crime! There is no there there! Based on what is slowly coming out regarding Hillary and the DNCs financing of the phony “dossier” and the “collusion” of Democrats with the Obama admin, including the CIA, the DNI, the FBI, and the DOJ, all of which were enlisted to help prevent Trump’s election, that’s where the real scandal lies. Agencies that should never become political weapons were in fact made so. This “Russian collusion” story is nothing but a diversion created by the really bad guys to focus attention on the opposition rather than themselves. It needs fully exposed and any crimes committed prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

  2. Geez, lying and obfuscating is what the entire dem wit party does constantly. How is that a crime these days? If it is, then by all means bring in all the dem wits Mueller. Put them under oath not pretend oath and document their lies via a real honest investigation. That would be worth your time.

    As it is, you are aiming low and missing the real target; but then, we all know the truth and a real investigation into all things Russian or Chinese was NEVER your goal.

  3. I do not care who has evidence of a crime especially one’s involving political subjects. These political scumbags, white, black, brown or whatever mixed are no different from any other American Citizen. Therefore, I believe the ones that have the dirt on these scumbags in the swamp stealing and giving away our Tax Dollars or breaking the law should be given medals for their bravery in keeping our systems Honest and with Integrity.

    They have not had any significant information on Trump. But they have had lots of information on Hillary Clinton and because she is a woman they are staying clear of her! Is this our Democracy at work? There are a lot of people on both sides who came to congress making less than $100,00. Now look at there Free Perks on Health Care, Retirement, and other perks. How many are now millionaires and how much is in each of their war chests to take home? Now do you want to know why they are all silent during certain investigations?
    EITHER VOTE MY WAY OR YOU GET THE HIGHWAY! OUR PARTY WILL NOT BACK YOU UP!

    1. Hellary has led many charges of EQUAL RIGHTS FOR WOMEN so the fact that she, I guess is a female, that should be all the more reason to bring her to justice. Let her be the example of equal rights, even when those rights include severe consequences for breaking the law!
      Hellary is as evil as they come, I believe she sold her soul decades ago. It’s time for her to go & take the rest of her cartel with her!

  6. From where I sit, I suspect DOZENS of Countries had/have dirt on HRC. Her dealings for decades have led to her being hated around the world. Perhaps, had she not chosen to be shady and use a private server, many with dirt woukd not have said dirt on her. I’ve long seen her as the truly evil Clinton. Slick Willy has a lying silver tongue & an appendage he cant seem to keep in his pants but Hellary is the power hungry, do anything to get that power Witch, she must be stopped & brought to real justice. Even if sentenced for a few of her crimes should put her away for life!

  7. 14 days was to long! Let me tell who violated the law; it is Meuller’s cabal. He daily violates 18 USCA 241 & 242. What lies to the get and use FICA to violate US citizens rigts for a Globalist agenda, in support of a Coup d’etat!

    1. This is treason as it was a power grab by her, with the assistance of Pakistani Intelligence Service, she was seeking to gain control over her colleagues in Congress and that is why she was threatening Capital Police about her laptop, and that is why she and Obama pushed Awan’s TOP secret clearance on a fast track. This is clearly why the Awan’s were paid over 5 million dollars and why James Comey and Andy Mc Cabe told the FBI agent in the airport police to release Awan’s wife from custody after she had been caught with $12,400 in United States currency in violation of currency transaction reports; how do you think she knew to call Comey and Mc Cabe?!
