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.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.

Glenn SNAPS over Dem corruption: ‘It’s NOT OVER!’

Glenn has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just for everyone to look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China...the list goes on, but no consequences are ever paid. So while the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, and insists no one can question it, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair. But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands.
