REPORT: Papadopoulos Lied To FBI Out Of Loyalty To Trump, Didn’t Want To Contradict Him On Russia

ABC News reports:

George Papadopoulos, the Trump foreign policy aide who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, initially misled agents out of what he claimed was loyalty to President Donald Trump, according to a person with direct knowledge of the investigation.

Trump had publicly denied that there had been any contact between his campaign and Russian officials, and Papadopoulos did not want to contradict the official line, the source said. “It’s all fake news,” Trump said of any alleged connections in January. “It’s phony stuff. It didn’t happen.”

      And Trump showed his thanks by calling him the coffee boy and telling him to fetch his shoeshine kit. He’s got the instincts of a Mafia Don.

        He isn’t smart enough to be a Mafia Don.

        In all honesty I’d run in a heartbeat.

        However, I’m open and honest about being a bisexual, atheist, sexual submissive/BDSM practitioner, and, uhm, yeah those hardcore S&M porn videos. Proud of it all, but may make my run a tad contentious.

      • Reality.Bites

        Bill Clinton’s campaign got a boost when he played the sax on the Arsenio Hall show. This article quotes him from an appearance on Conan. It strikes me that with his talk show appearances he’s like the Betty White or Tony Randall of presidents. He’ll be a good talk show guest as long as he’s alive and healthy.

        As for Trump, while some will continue to embrace him post-presidency, the list of those who’ll shun him has grown tremendously.

      Newsflash, it’s not endangered, it’s already dying. So say we all outside the U.S.

      We don’t say it with glee, but we do say it with a sense of both relief coupled with sadness. A nation that once knew how to balance power without being a bully is now a nation lead by a bully with access to power. The relief comes from knowing he will soon be toppled, the sadness is from knowing that the damage done by his election, the wounds it opened and the cesspool that existed under the veneer now exposed, makes the U.S. a much less trustworthy ally going forward. The stench of his failure and that of the GOP will linger…
