Skip to comments.After Mueller Comes Up Empty, His Targets Speak Out (Cliensmith interviewed Papadopoulos)
Posted on 11/23/2019 10:11:29 AM PST by CaptainK
A junior member of the Trump foreign policy advisory team in 2016, George Papadopoulos was approached by FBI agents in Chicago, where he lived with his mother after the election while waiting for what he hoped would be an offer to join the new administration. The agents said they just wanted to talk to him about contacts hed made with people in London during the campaign.
He spoke to them without a lawyer or the benefit of notes, emails or a calendar to refresh his recollection a decision he would later regret. One of the interviews was run by FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who was later pulled off Mueller's team after the inspector general exposed his anti-Trump text messages. Clinesmith zeroed in on Papadopoulos' conversations with a supposedly Kremlin-tied diplomat in London, Joseph Mifsud.
Then on July 27, 2017, while returning to the U.S. from a trip to Greece, at least a half dozen of Muellers agents stopped him at Washington Dulles International Airport. They searched his bags, confiscated his passport and slapped handcuffs and leg shackles on him. They also seized his cellphone and demanded he tell them his passcode to access it.
This is what happens when you work for Trump, growled one agent one of several Mueller investigators Papadopoulos described as mean, nasty and underhanded.

I transposed by mistake!!!
I watched Rudy on Fox today. I believe he has the goods on everyone. I hope he has good security.
I think George P should be asked to identify the FBI agent tha made the comment. He should thus be fired on the spot.
Just think what they would do to the rest of us who won't bend a knee to the Fascist state if they manage to get rid of President Trump. Even now, how many people will not work for Trump because of the fear of what will happen to them.
I believe he was stopped at the airport because they thought he had 10K that they had baited him with. PapaD smelled a rat and left the money there.
This is why there have to be consequences for the bad actors. 20 and 30 year prison terms, executions for treason and sedition.
“PapaD smelled a rat and left the money there.”
That was a good story. I guess GP’s girlfriend (now wife) was the one who encouraged him to turn the $10K over to his attorney in Italy before traveling. Good instincts there; smart man to marry the girl.
He left the 10K with a lawyer in Greece (or Cyrus. I forget which). I think the money is still there.
He thought that the money might be marked and I agree with him. I think the FBI or the CIA marked it.
NEVER talk to the Feds without your lawyer being present. They tricked Gen. Flynn the same way. It can cost you millions, as well as your freedom.
She is not only smart. She is stunning. To his credit, George P. did not fall for their temptation to sin with the Russian honeypot, proving he was a much better man.
She worked for MIFSUD at one time!!!!!WEIRD!!
Agree, but I suspect there will be no indictments or jail terms for any of the major coup plotters. There will only be Justice if the citizenry rise up and administer it. The DOJ will not do the job IMO.
The last 3 years have taught me never to speak to any law enforcement officer, starting from a lowly crossing guard up to the head of the Alphabets.
It’s a good flashback which is suddenly relevant again, but you’re supposed to enter the original date of the article in the date field, not today’s date.
I did post the original date.

Have to agree with this. Local LE as well. Trust in our “protectors” has taken a blow it will never recover from, thanks to the 0bama regime’s SS.
