Donald J. Trump, 45th US President of the United States

Recommended Posts

Prosecutors painted a picture of an eager young political operative who appeared to be currying favor with his superiors in the Trump campaign by repeatedly trying to set up a meeting between Trump and Putin or other senior Russian leaders. He sought himself to meet with top Russian officials, and he plied his bosses with promises that the Russians had "thousands of emails" full of "dirt" on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

 

Those meetings never occurred, and those emails never materialized, at least not through Papadopoulos' efforts, prosecutors said.

At one point, they said, a campaign official made it clear in an internal message that "DT" — presumably Trump — "is not doing these trips." That message should be conveyed by "someone low level in the campaign," wrote the unnamed campaign official — who suggested that ignoring Papadopoulos was a reasonable option, according to prosecutors. 

 

In an Aug. 21 interview with the Russian news site Gazeta, Timofeev said Papadopoulos approached him sometime in spring 2016 seeking to arrange "a visit to Russia either for Trump himself or for a member of his team 'to discuss Russia-U.S. relations.'" He said Papadopoulos represented himself as a member of the Trump campaign.

 

Timofeev described Papadopoulos as "an enthusiast with little experience."

 

"Our conversations made it clear that George was not well acquainted with the Russian foreign political landscape," Timofeev said.

 

"You obviously can't just go and set up a meeting with the president, for instance. Things just aren't done that way." He said he recommended some public reports and "analytical materials" for Papadopoulos to read to get up to speed.

Ah, so you're responding with deep denial then?

 

I'm not a Hillary lover but I don't expect you to be able to understand anything with a shade of nuance to it.

There's nothing to deny. The feds scared a mail room kid into wearing a wire to entrap Trump's team.  It should be a laugh to see what they come up with. Pathetic move when they have collusion and pay to play staring them right in the face on the dem side. 

 

The Manafort charge was expected. This type of weird charge has only been levelled six times in 50 years and resulted in only one conviction. His lawyer sounds good. Listen....

Sure Pence is clean.  Maybe a good evangelical cleansing is what you're looking for? Trump's too smart to get beat by these clowns though, rest easy.

 

Saving this for future laughter.

If Trump was innocent he wouldn't be trying so hard to discredit witnesses or go on his pathetic tweet rants, he's be giving Mueller all the resources he needed to get to the truth.

I don't think so. Trump doesn't think or behave like a normal person. Feels more like business as usual. 

 

Once one of his lawyers convince him to stop Twitter, then I think we're getting somewhere.

I see the Trumpists are in major deflection mode..Hillary Hillary..Obama Obama.

Donny Jr. showed up to a meeting in hopes of getting hacked Russian info, which is technically attempting treason, this is all leading up to that little weasels indictment. I hope it drags out until the next US election so he can't get pardoned.

George Papadopoulos Was a Campaign Volunteer – All Attempts to Get Trump to Meet With Russians Were Rejected

 

Sure, and Manafort was a volunteer. So is Kushner. So is Trump.

 

Whatever spastic flailing deflection Trump or Fox News wishes to go with doesn't matter in the slightest. The charges are what is important.
