This morning we were all shocked when President Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was indicted on charges that he funneled millions of dollars through overseas shell companies and used the money to buy luxury cars, real estate, antiques and expensive suits.
Manafort surrendered to federal authorities in Washington, D.C. Monday morning after a grand jury approved the charges brought by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller Friday!
In addition to Manafort and Gate, former Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos was arrested for making false statements to FBI agents.
Papadopoulos was a volunteer whose repeated attempts to set up meetings between Trump’s camp and Russians were outright rejected. Who is this guy? Was he a plant?
Reporters are now saying Papadopoulos being a ‘proactive cooperator’ means he wore a wire for dirty cop Mueller.
Investigative reporter for USA Today covering law and justice, Brad Heath tweeted, “Mueller’s office said in a court filing that Trump aide George Papadopoulos “indicated that he is willing to cooperate with the government.”

Washington correspondent for the Toronto Star responded to Heath, “Papadopoulos is described as “proactive cooperator.” Former prosecutor tells me that sometimes means “wore a wire.””

According to the plea agreement, Papadopoulos was arrested on July 27th and signed his deal with the Feds October 5th. The public was unaware of this since the records were sealed.
Papadopoulos may have been wearing a wire and working for the Feds for the last few months.
Mueller’s witch hunt must be shut down. It is out of control and unconstitutional.
Were Manafort and Papadopoulos a plant by Podesta and the Obama gang into the Trump campaign?I am not sure but this fellow is a loser and why would Manafort work for the Podesta Group and then just happen to apply for campaign manager, wonder who suggested him to Trump?
