We all know that disgraced former FBI Director and swamp rat James Comey conducted a secret investigation on Donald Trump.
But there is so much more to the story. And George Papadopoulos may have another critical piece of the puzzle.
Maria Bartiromo of Fox News tweeted:
BREAKING NEWS: @GeorgePapa19 just told me he is going back to #Greece to retrieve the $10-k that was dropped in his lap as part of the #FBI‘s entrapment. It’s in a safe in Greece. It’s marked bills and the intel committees want to see it. @MorningsMaria @FoxBusiness

Papadopoulos believes and federal investigators want to see the marked bills, which he said are now stored in a safe.
Papadopoulos said on “Sunday Morning Futures” he was “very happy” to see Devin Nunes, R-Calif., grill former Special Counsel Robert Mueller about the summer 2017 payment during last week’s hearings. In his response, Mueller contended that the matter was outside the scope of his investigation.
“I was very happy to see that Devin Nunes brought that up. A man named Charles Tawil gave me this money [in Israel] under very suspicious circumstances. A simple Google search about this individual will reveal he was a CIA or State Department asset in South Africa during the ’90s and 2000s. I think around the time when Bob Mueller was the director of the FBI.”
“So, I have my theory of what that was all about,” Papadopoulos added. “The money, I gave it to my attorney in Greece because I felt it was given to me under very suspicious circumstances. And upon coming back to the United States I had about seven or eight FBI agents rummaging through my luggage looking for money.”
Smart move. And one the FBI or crooked John Brennan’s CIA didn’t anticipate.
Papadopoulos expanded on how the money drop occurred.
“I was reached out to once again by another person who wanted to do business with me. And I was on vacation with my then girlfriend now wife, in Greece, and he comes to me he says why don’t you come to Israel with me and let’s talk about working together. I go to Israel with him, and he drops $10,000 in my lap in a room, in Tel Aviv. And I don’t understand what is happening, I am very disturbed by the events. I fly to Athens the next day and give the money to my lawyers and this person tells me he doesn’t want his money back, so immediately I thought there was something wrong.”
And like with all the Trump people Mueller questioned, Papadopoulos too was forthcoming. And In a court filing last year, Mueller’s prosecutors wrote that Papadopoulos “provided information about $10,000 in cash he received from a foreign national whom he believed was likely an intelligence officer of a foreign country (other than Russia).”
So why then was Papadopoulos indicted? For optics.
Mueller gave Papadopoulos a slap on the hand of a fine and incarceration. But Mueller had “bragging rights”, and the red meat Democrats needed.
