George Papadopoulous drunken bragging in London wine bar started Trump collusion investigation: report

Published

on

According to the New York Times,  the investigation into collusion between Russian operatives and members of President Donald Trump’s campaign staff  had its beginning in a London wine bar where Trump adviser George Papadopoulos bragged about having “dirt” on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The report notes that the foreign policy adviser made the boast to Australia’s top diplomat in Britain in May of 2016.

According to the report, “Exactly how much Mr. Papadopoulos said that night at the Kensington Wine Rooms with the Australian, Alexander Downer, is unclear. But two months later, when leaked Democratic emails began appearing online, Australian officials passed the information about Mr. Papadopoulos to their American counterparts, according to four current and former American and foreign officials with direct knowledge of the Australians’ role.”

Since Papadopoulos made a plea bargain with special counsel Robert Mueller, the White House has attempted to paint him as a “coffee boy” who was barely involved in Trump’s campaign.

The co-author of the president's 1987 autobiography Trump: The Art of the Deal on Friday revealed "all you need to know" about the commander-in-chief.

Tony Schwartz offered advice on how to respond to Trump as his behavior becomes even more erratic.

"As we all know, Trump is shameless and compulsive liar. Here's the solution: ignore everything he says -- everything," Schwartz counseled.

"Don't waste any energy in outrage," he continued.

"Just know nothing he says is ever true," Schwartz said. "That's all you need to know."
