Robert Mueller’s collusion investigation suffered a fatal blow.
A surprise witness just stepped forward and blew a giant hole in the special counsel’s investigation.
And this shocking testimony proves Trump is innocent once and for all.
Robert Mueller’s team trumpeted the guilty plea by Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos as a significant development in his investigation.
Papadopoulos allegedly kicked off the Russia investigation by blabbing to Australian diplomat Alexander Downer about the Russians offering him dirt in the form of emails on Hillary Clinton.
Although Papadopoulos was never charged with colluding with Russia, the media took his guilty plea as an article of faith that the Trump team had advanced knowledge of Russia possessing hacked emails obtained from Democrats.
This was the alleged silver bullet that proved collusion.
But Mueller’s case just collapsed.
Mueller’s case against Papadopoulos hinges on an interaction with Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud.
The plea agreement states Papadopoulos understood Mifsud to be connected to the Russian government when they met and Mifsud claimed the Russians had “dirt on Hillary.”
But that does not appear to be the case.
The truth is Mifsud is connected to Western intelligence and he has strongly denied any connection to Russia.
Papadopoulos’ wife Simona Mangiante – who is a former attorney in the European Parliament – gave an interview to the Daily Caller where she stated that Papadopoulos had no involvement with Russian collusion and did not believe the “dirt” he was offered by Mifsud were the hacked emails from the DNC.
According to Mangiante, Papadopoulos believed Mifsud –who offered the information unprompted – was talking about the 30,000 emails Hillary Clinton said her legal team deleted from her private server.
Magiante also claimed Papadopoulos only pled guilty to a process crime of lying to the FBI about when he met with Mifsud because Mueller and his team threatened to charge him with being an agent of the Israeli government.
The Daily Caller reported: “George had nothing to do with Russia,” said Mangiante, who has acted as a sort of spokeswoman for her husband in the months since his plea deal.
Mangiante also said Papadopoulos “pled guilty because [Mueller’s prosecutors] threatened to charge him with being an Israeli agent.”
Mangiante also shot down any rumors that Papadopoulos possessed any damaging information on Trump or his campaign.
The Daily Caller reports:
“On Dec. 8, she told CNN that the White House wanted to “disassociate” from Papadopoulos because he had “decided to actively cooperate with the government, on the right side.”
Mangiante said she was limited at the time in what she could discuss about Papadopoulos’ case. But she said she did not intend the reference to Dean to be an indication that Papadopoulos would reveal information about collusion.
“I wasn’t saying that the campaign was trying to collude.”
Based on this interview, Mueller’s case is nothing more than a house of cards.
The press hyped up the Papadopoulos’ guilty plea because it allowed the anti-Trump forces to present forward momentum in the Mueller investigation.
But like the entire collusion scam, there is no “there, there.”
Papadopoulos – who never colluded with Russia or knew anything about alleged Russian interference – pled guilty to a minor process crime because Mueller threatened him with a costly and life-changing legal battle.
So Papadopoulos copped to a minor crime that could see him in jail for up to six months.
Far from being a Russian agent, Papadopoulos was an innocent victim of a maniacal and blood thirsty anti-Trump prosecutor out to score victories at any cost.
