Here’s What You Should Know About George Papadopoulos

What happened?

A former foreign policy adviser on the Trump campaign has pleaded guilty to making a false statement to the FBI about the “timing, extent and nature” of his interactions with people he knew could connect him to senior Russian government officials.

Tell me that name again …

George Papadopoulos: He joined the Trump campaign in March 2016.

CNN reported:

The statement from Mueller says that Papadopoulos falsely claimed he met with an overseas professor before joining the Trump campaign in March 2016 about “the Russians possessing “dirt” on Hillary Clinton in the form of “thousands of emails.”

During a March 31, 2016, foreign policy meeting with Trump and other campaign foreign policy advisers, Papadopoulos introduced himself to the group and stated “he had connections that could help arrange a meeting between then-candidate Trump and President Putin,” according a factual statement signed by Papadopoulos in connection with his guilty plea.

Anything else I need to know?

It’s a complex story that’s still developing. Learn more with our explainer here.

Glenn’s take:

Glenn compared the Trump campaign’s reported connections to Russia to the Clinton campaign and DNC’s funding of the infamous “Trump dossier.”

“What’s the difference between what he just did and what Hillary did and Fusion GPS? Except somebody laundered the information,” Glenn said. “The term everybody is looking for is ‘opposition research.'”

GLENN: Who exactly is George Papadopoulos? Well, not since Carter Page has such an obscure foreign policy adviser for the Trump campaign garnered such hype. The media is in full a-ha mode this morning. Look at the headlines: Why George Papadopoulos is more dangerous than Paul Manafort. From the Washington Post: Russia's outreach to George Papadopoulos just went how -- how spies would have done it.

I could read all of the headlines, not even the stories. But I've only got three hours. According to the court records, unsealed yesterday, Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI. The FBI said he quote falsely described his interactions with a certain foreign contact who discussed dirt related to emails, end quote.

Concerning the Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, we would presume. The interactions with the Russians included a woman claiming to be related to Vladimir Putin. Spoiler alert, she wasn't. All of this was allegedly to gain damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

Okay. What's the difference between what he just did and what Hillary did? And Fusion GPS. Except, somebody laundered the information.

The -- the term that everybody is looking for is opposition research. Oh, yeah. Note to the Trump campaign, if you want to engage in opposition research, do it like the DNC and Clinton campaign does it: Just have your lawyer contract a former British spy, and that way you have that extra layer of deniability that way.

So why is every single media outlet fully on board with the Papadopoulos hype train?

What could they possibly be doing? Perhaps it's just irony or maybe fate, but in addition to Halloween, today is national magic day. The mainstream media, in reverence to this most hallowed day is pulling off a little sleight of hand. So the question is, what's in the other hand that we're being distracted from?

If you read the 30-plus pages of the Manafort indictment, you might have noticed a reference to company A and company B. Apparently, most of the media missed that. NBC was the only one that, you know, decided to take notice.

Sources told NBC that company A is the Podesta Group. They were working hand in hand with Manafort lobbying for the Ukrainian government. Tony Podesta, the founder of the Podesta Group and brother to former Clinton campaign chairman and good friend, John Podesta, announced that he was resigning from the firm that he founded in order to fight the Mueller investigation.

Wait a minute. Wait. Wait. What?

There's more people involved in the Russia investigation besides Manafort and Papa what's his name? And someone with heavy connections to the Clintons? Surely not. Can't be.

Well, now I'm in trouble because I broke the national cardinal rule of magicians on national magic day. And that is the mainstream media will never let me in their club now, because I've revealed a secret.

Don't be fooled by the hand they're showing you. The truth is, there is something else that for some reason, nobody really wants you to see.

The New Red Scare & Our 'Reality Czars'

The American Red Scare of the 1950s may be one of the most important — and most terrifying — events in our nation's history. It was a witch hunt — an all-out assault — on any American citizen deemed to be a threat simply because of their thoughts.
Led by Senator McCarthy, the House of Un-American Activities Committee destroyed lives. Mere accusations sometimes meant you were stripped of your job and your dignity. Sound familiar?

On Glenn TV tonight, Glenn Beck outlines how we've gone from pursuing alleged communists to pursuing "right-wing extremists." But how are our new "reality czars" defining that? Is it Trump supporters, red-state Republicans, conspiracy-theorist "nut jobs"? Our new Red Scare is here, America. Are you on the list? Later, Donald Trump Jr. joins Glenn to call out this modern McCarthyism and explains the real reason for President Trump's second impeachment trial.

Watch the special in full below:

Only BlazeTV subscribers can watch the full, unedited interview with Donald Trump Jr., free from "reality czars." Glenn asks Don Jr. how President Trump is handling the impeachment, what happens to the conservative movement going forward, and whether it will be led by a Trump.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Jewish Space Lasers & Deplatforming 'MAGA Media' | Ben Shapiro | Ep 96

Behold Ben Shapiro, the Great Wrecker of Libs himself. From the growing contempt for free speech to the fatal excesses of cancel culture and the forcefulness of so-called racial equity, Ben smashes claims that conservatives don't battle censorship. All of it is fueled by the Left's need for constant revolution and their habitual gaslighting. Seriously, the gaslighting is nonstop: At this very moment, makeshift fencing (aka a wall) surrounds the Capitol. Democrats used to hate walls and borders, but thousands of National Guardsmen occupy Washington, D.C., for unclear reasons, for an indefinite amount of time, and the Democrats are happy about it?

Ben also addresses some of the more "creative" conspiracy theories of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, like Jewish space lasers. And what about the obsession to rid this "cancer" from Congress? Ben says it's all politics: "We're all old enough to remember [before] Marjorie Taylor Greene, it was Steve King, and when it was not Steve King and it was Christine O'Donnell, and when it was not Christine O'Donnell, it was Todd Akin. Meanwhile, I got Nancy Pelosi on the cover of a magazine with Ilhan Omar, and it's like, well, 'that's just the way things go' five minutes after she was about to censure her for her anti-Semitism." Ben ends the show on a strategy to help Democrats and tearful journalists at Politico stop treating conservatives as domestic enemies.

How Biden will COMPLETE Obama's radical transformation of America

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal the moment in history we went from "America the Free" to "America the Oligarchy." He runs through a terrifying checklist of how much damage has been done since former President Barack Obama promised to "fundamentally transform the United States of America," and argues the Biden administration is really just Obama 2.0 on steroids, and progressive ideals are being executed at a hyper-accelerated pace.

While Joe Biden signed record numbers of executive actions, the World Economic Forum gathered to further push the Great Reset, and the ideas are nearly identical. There's a very specific reason why the first keynote speaker last week at the World Economic Forum wasn't an expert on free market capitalism, but the president of ... CHINA.

We are hurtling toward an oligarchy where Big Government merges with Big Corporations. They'll have all the power, and according to our betters behind the Great Reset, "You'll own nothing and you'll be happy."

Democrats are using the GameStop, Reddit saga to CRUSH the underdog

Glenn explains how — despite what Democrats will tell the public — they care NOTHING for the little guy...all they want is control, and the GameStop & Reddit saga is showing us how much control they want. Because right now they're doing everything they can to CRUSH the underdog. Glenn says that when the government gets heavily involved in the stock market & when you can only invest in a company (like GameStop) from the stock exchange in MEXICO, it means we no longer have a free market here in America anymore...
