George Papadapoulos Tells Hannity What You Need to Know About Russian Collusion

Former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos was sentenced to a minuscule two weeks in prison on a single count of lying to the FBI. Papadapoulos was purported to be a Trump campaign figure central to colluding with Russia – and yet he got off with only a two week sentence?

Of course, that’s because there was no collusion at all. Papadapoulos was set up, and he didn’t walk into the trap that was set for him.

In April 2016, Papadapoulos met with a Maltese professor named Joseph Mifsud in London. During one of those meetings, Mifsud would claim to have damning information on the Russians, including Hillary Clinton’s hacked emails (which he did not have). Mifsud also claimed to have all sorts of connections to the Russian government.

In reality, the only connection we know he has for sure is to the Clinton Foundation, of which he’s donated to in the past.

In May, Papadapoulos met in London with Australia’s top diplomat in the United Kingdom, Alexander Downer (at Downer’s request). It was there that Papadapoulos, reportedly while drunk, would make a comment in which he claimed to posses Hillary Clinton’s hacked emails (which would’ve been impossible). Downer then reported that comment to the FBI, which they would use as one of their excuses to spy on the Trump campaign.

Like Mifsud, Downer has ties to the Clinton Foundation, and to a much larger extent. Downer used his influence as ambassador to broker a $25 million donation from the Australian government to the Clinton Foundation in 2007.

Did Mifsud plant a bogus idea in Papadapoulos’ head for him to repeat? Or were both on a fishing expedition, hoping to pry out anything from Papadapoulos that could bolster a mythical narrative of Russian collusion? Papadapoulos shed some insight into the situation with Sean Hannity last night.

As BizPacReview reported: “Papadopoulos said he didn’t know what Mifsud’s purpose was, but he described it as ‘incredible shady.’ Citing the man’s lawyer, he left open the possibility that Mifsud was working on behalf of somebody else. It was in London that Papadopoulos also met former Australian diplomat Alexander Downer. Papadopoulos, who told Hannity it felt like a bomb was dropped on him, said he was so suspicious of what was going on that he notified the FBI that he suspected Downer was illegally recording their conversations. As for whether he was set up, Papadopoulos tweeted that is was ‘laughable’ to think their meeting was random.”

Robert Mueller’s special counsel has been going on for over a year, and yet there there hasn’t been a single shred of evidence found that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.
