Convicted Trump foreign policy advisor announces he’s ‘uncovered a massive plot’

Published

A former foreign policy advisor to President Donald Trump who pleaded guilty to making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation is now alleging he has uncovered a “massive plot” against him.

George Papadopoulos was arrested by FBI agents at Washington-Dulles Airport in July of 2017 and pleaded guilty that November. On September 7, he was sentenced to 14 days in prison, 12 months of supervised release, 200 hours of community service and a $9,500 fine.

Papadopoulos has claimed he was set up “to try and sabotage Donald Trump” after Australia alerted U.S. officials to his claims that Russia had damaging information on Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Former CIA Director Michael Hayden was shocked to see Papadopoulos make his allegation.

Papadopoulos argues that the tweet by “Obama’s former CIA director” vindicates his “massive plot” conspiracy theory.

Gen. Hayden was actually appointed CIA Director by Republican President George W. Bush, though he served 24 days during Obama’s presidency as a hold-over.

Published

on

House Republican impeachment inquiry attorney Steve Castor on Friday baffled viewers with a line of questioning that appeared to be beneficial to House Democrats' case for impeaching President Donald Trump.

Among other things, Castor referred to ambassador Bill Taylor as a man of integrity and also didn't challenge former ambassador Marie Yovanovich's story that she had been the subject of a smear campaign launched by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.

In fact, Castor's line of questioning was so friendly to House Democrats, that some Twitter users joked that he was a "deep state plant" who's secretly helping to impeach the president.

CNN legal analysts rip apart Jim Jordan’s ‘nonsensical’ defense of Trump witness intimidation

Published

on

CNN legal analyst Elie Honig blasted Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for arguing that President Donald Trump hadn't engaged in witness intimidation by tweeting attacks on a former ambassador as she testified against him in the impeachment inquiry.

Jordan argued the tweet can't be witness intimidation because Marie Yovanovitch wouldn't have known about the attack if Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) hadn't read it to her, but Honig said the GOP lawmaker's claim was ridiculous.

"His point is nonsensical," Honig said. "Of course, she was going to find out about a tweet that went out to 60 million people-plus. The law covers any way you look regarding timing."
