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.

LIVE NOW: Golden State Gulag: California's pursuit of Communism is a WARNING for America

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists. But if the Biden administration believes there's a grave danger to the American people, WHY are they not providing us with the information we need to protect ourselves? Or is it all due to politics? Glenn has four questions he believes our officials in DC must answer. For example, WHY are the Capitol rioters being treated like prisoners at Guantanamo?

Big Tech now censors the stories of WW2 VETS too?

Rishi Sharma, founder of Heroes of the Second World War, has spent years interviewing as many World War II veterans that he can. His life passion, he says, is making sure these heroes' stories are recorded and preserved so future generations will never forget their sacrifices. But — perhaps unsurprisingly — Big Tech now stands in the way. Rishi describes to Glenn alleged censorship he believes his YouTube page — which contains many of these WW2 vets' stories — has experienced in the last year. "Makeup tutorials get a billon views, but the men who fought for our freedom...why can't they get the same attention?"

Glenn Beck CALLS OUT companies working with China as HORRIFIC new details emerge about concentration camps

An upcoming book, "The Chief Witness: Escape from China's Modern-Day Concentration Camps," details one woman's "fight to survive" inside one of China's 380 unspeakably horrific concentration camps.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" this week, Glenn asked why, after seeing horrors like this in history before, aren't we taking acting to stop this? Companies like Apple, Google, and Facebook not only continue to work with China, but have sometimes even given the Chinese Communist Party the tools it needs to spy on its people.

Glenn read an excerpt from the book in which co-author Sayragul Sauytbay describes the concentration camp where she was incarcerated for the "crime" of being one of the China's ethnic minorities and the shocking details of what she witnessed and experienced as a prisoner.

"I can't tell you how disgusted I am. ... It means nothing to say 'never forget' if you won't talk about the things that lead to the Holocaust. 'Never forget' doesn't mean just remember their names and remember what happened, but look at the seeds that are being planted today so we don't go down that road," Glenn said after reading the disturbing details.

"How do you make sure that that doesn't happen, if you won't talk about the seeds that are being planted? It's too late when the tree has its vines all around your neck. It's too late. Silence in the face of evil, is evil itself. Not to stand, is to stand. The world is becoming more and more deaf to evil. It is all becoming perverted. What is happening in China is evil, and I don't care if it's Disney, or Apple, or Facebook, or anybody else that is doing business in China ... you're part of the problem," he went on to say.

"We must stand together ... to stand for the Jewish people. To stand for the Chinese Uighurs. To stand against another coming Holocaust, wherever it might happen in the world. To stand against this evil of critical race theory. It is evil."
