Coffee Boy To Interview With US House Investigators

Politico reports:

George Papadopoulos, the former Trump campaign aide whose overseas interactions set in motion a series of events that triggered the FBI’s Russia investigation in 2016, is slated to interview with House investigators on Oct. 25, his lawyer Caroline Polisi confirmed Friday.

The voluntary interview, part of a GOP-driven investigation into the FBI’s handling of the Russia probe, will come less than two weeks before the midterm elections and is likely to provide more fodder for Republicans who have accused former officials at the bureau of letting anti-Trump sentiment fuel the investigation. The probe is being led by a task force run by Republican leaders of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees.

Papadopoulos and his wife, Simona Mangiante, have raised increasingly pointed questions about whether encounters with suspect figures overseas as well as an outed FBI source suggest a Western conspiracy to entrap him and implicate the Trump campaign.
