Former Trump Campaign volunteer 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 repeatedly rejected.
** Here is a copy of the Papadopoulos indictment that was filed back on October 5, 2017.
Papadopoulos was reportedly wired by Robert Mueller to spy on Trump campaign officials after his arrest in July.
George Papadopoulos was in contact with Sergei Millian, who was the Steele “source” for the anti-Trump dossier.
According to Reddit contributor GeminiSi:
From the Statement of Offense.
1. 10 – 11 April – George Papalopoulos (GP) emails the Russian female contact trying to set up a ‘foreign policy trip’ , which she agrees to eagerly.
2. 26 April – GP meets Russian woman who tells him they can arrange a Putin-Trump meeting & have ‘dirt’ on HRC -/…
3. The Russians have another go. On June 9, the Trump Jr sting. A Russian woman promises dirt on HRC, but never delivers. Sound familiar?
4. And here’s an interesting fact. GP had another contact he never disclosed,- Sergei Millian.
And from an anti-Trump tweeter (Louise Mensch) who connects the two on 15 Aug 2017, but doesn’t quite get the significance: George Papadopoulos, who repeatedly tried to set up a Putin-Trump meeting per @WashPost, is tied to Sergei Millian… YES. Millian of Steele Dossier fame, see Sergei Millian.
Sergei Millian is one of 240 GP’s Facebook friends.
Millian told several people that during the campaign and presidential transition he was in touch with George Papadopoulos, a campaign foreign policy adviser, according to a person familiar with the matter. Millian is among Papadopoulos’s nearly 240 Facebook friends.
Papadapoulos was told Russia had breached Clinton correspondence by Moscow-connected academic. P's chum Millian was a Steele source.
