Robert Mueller is on a crusade to bring down Trump.
His Russia witch hunt has been a favorite topic by the fake media.
And one person he’s now using to take down Trump is sure to give his investigation legs.
Until this week nobody really knew who George Papadopoulos was.
But now he’s the mainstream media’s darling.
Papadopoulos was a foreign policy advisor for the Trump Administration, and he just pled guilty to colluding with Russia to gather dirt on Hillary Clinton.
The media has been milking this story to try to prove President Trump’s guilt in colluding with Russia.
This can be seen in a recent report by the New York Times:
“Buried in the first wave of blockbuster reports about the indictment of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates was the revelation that a close foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign had pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I. about his contacts with Russians. Most Americans had never heard of the adviser, George Papadopoulos, before Monday afternoon, but his is the name to remember. That’s because his guilty plea is far more immediately ominous to the president and his inner circle than the charges against Mr. Manafort and Mr. Gates.
Why? Though the White House will surely try to deny it — indeed, on Monday, its spokeswoman, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, insisted that Mr. Papadopoulos was merely a volunteer — the plea agreement says plainly that Russia reached out to Mr. Papadopoulos because of his status as a named foreign policy adviser to the campaign. For all of the talk about collusion with Russia since Mr. Trump’s election, this is by far the most damning evidence of it.”
There are a few problems with this allegation.
First, a former employer claims that Papadopoulos lied on his resume to get the advisor job in the Trump Administration.
That nugget of information was reported by Newsweek:
“George Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his attempts to get dirt on Hillary Clinton from the Russians, claimed on his resume to have worked as a research assistant at the Hudson Institute for almost five years. His LinkedIn profile said he worked with three senior fellows from March 2011 through September 2015 and led energy security projects for Eastern Mediterranean countries until accepting a role on Ben Carson’s presidential campaign.
But the conservative think tank said in a statement that Papadopoulos was just an unpaid intern in 2011 and only worked as a freelance contractor for one Hudson senior fellow in 2013 and 2014. A former manager for Papadopoulos did not respond to comment on the timeline inconsistencies, but the Hudson Institute said he exaggerated his time there.”
And his position in the Trump Administration itself has been heavily overplayed.
President Trump and his Administration have referred to him simply as a low level volunteer.
….came to the campaign. Few people knew the young, low level volunteer named George, who has already proven to be a liar. Check the DEMS!

All of this information is fueling speculation that Papadopoulos is nothing more than Robert Mueller’s pawn, working as a useful idiot to help in his crusade to take down the President.
Do you think that Papadopoulos is lying about collusion with Russia?
