Convicted Trump advisor Papadopoulos begging for $250K to ‘live normal again’

Published

on

Former Donald Trump presidential campaign advisor George Papadopoulos is hoping Trump supporters will donate $250,000 to him because he’s been “the victim of the biggest plot in American political history.”

In October of 2017, Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to lying to the FBI about contacts he had with Russian agents during the 2016 campaign.

In September, Papadopoulos was sentenced to 14 days in prison, a fine of $9,500 and 200 hours of community service. He’s complained of being unemployable since his indictment.

On Thursday, Papadopoulos again took to Twitter to request contributions.

On the fundraising page, Papadopoulos is fancied as the victim of an international espionage scheme.

“George Papadopoulos, a young man who has devoted his bright career to serve his country and help Donald Trump to become our President, has been the victim of the biggest plot in American political history,” the page reads. “While honestly working for the Trump campaign, he became the target of many shady forces to sabotage the President.”

“He had a brilliant career that was violently interrupted,” the page claims.

Devin Nunes (R-CA) had been covertly communicating with indicted Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas, as well as right-wing reporter John Solomon, who was responsible for disputed reports attacking former Vice President Joe Biden's son and former Ukrainian Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.

A hateful defense: Republicans can’t exonerate Trump — and so they’re relying on primal loathing

Published

on

Republicans have nothing: That is the only reasonable conclusion one can draw after Monday’s impeachment hearing before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s clear that Donald Trump is guilty of running an extortion scheme against Ukraine in order to gin up false accusations against his potential 2020 rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. The evidence, which has been laid out in a series of hearings and in a 300-page document released last week, is voluminous and crystal-clear.

Internet laughs out loud after Trump press secretary Stephanie Grisham says ‘let’s be honest’

Published

The credibility gap that has plagued official spokespeople for Donald Trump resulted in hilarious responses after she began her latest defense of the president with, "Let's be honest."

It started when Washington Post reporter David Nakamura noted an unfortunate young man who was stuck sitting next to Trump as the commander-in-chief issued a lie-filled rant about the "overthrow of government" in America.

This young man was invited to a White House roundtable on school choice but he had to sit there as Trump denounced the FBI's Russia investigation as an attempted "overthrow of government"--even though IG called probe legitimate and not political. pic.twitter.com/WdaYLudGnx
