Confirmation that Trump Aide Inspired the Russian Investigation


George Papadopoulos in London. US officials told the NYT it was Papadopoulos’s revelation, not the infamous Steele dossier, that lead to Russia inquiry.
It was the end of October of 2017 that the name “George Papadopoulos” appeared in multiple articles across the internet.  Trump first identified Papadopoulos as one of his advisers in a March 2016 meeting with The Post’s editorial board, describing him as “an energy and oil consultant. Excellent guy.”  After Papadopoulos plead guilty, Trump described him as a “low energy guy.’

Papadopoulos was charged under seal in July and was arrested when he arrived at Dulles International Airport on July 27. His plea agreement indicates that he is cooperating with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III. He pleaded guilty last October to lying to federal agents about his contacts with people with connections to the Russian government.

Sam Clovis, Trump’s national campaign co-chairman urged a foreign policy adviser to meet with Russian officials to foster ties with that country’s government.
“Make the trip, if it is feasible,” Sam Clovis wrote in an August email to George Papadopoulos.The email, included in court papers that were unsealed shows how an otherwise low-profile adviser has become a focus of the federal probe into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

Papadopoulos was in contact with several senior Trump campaign aides about his efforts to broker a relationship between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. In addition to Clovis, who now serves as senior White House adviser to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Papadopoulos wrote to campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
