A lawyer working to get charges against now-infamous Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos dismissed has claimed that special prosecutor Robert Mueller tried to have him killed.

As the New York Times‘ Adam Goldman noted, this lawyer tried to do the same for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
Earlier in the day, legal reporters had expressed confusion after discovering that someone had filed a motion to dismiss the indictment against Papadopoulos.
