Papadopoulos’s Trial Shreds Obama Administration Claim That He Was Predicate Reason for Spying on Trump

Elder Patriot – Paul Sperry is one of the truly great investigative journalists and reader of political tea leaves.  He is a true national treasure so when he writes, or tweets, on a subject it’s well worth considering what message he’s conveying.

Special counsel Robert Mueller had been seeking a six-month sentence for junior Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos but Federal Judge Randolph Moss gave him a mere 14 days.  Whoa Nellie. Something doesn’t add up here.

The entire pretext for the special counsel’s appointment was Papadopoulos’ involvement in helping the Trump campaign gain dirt on Hillary Clinton from Russia.  Fourteen days in lock-up isn’t commensurate with that level of sedition or treason.

The judge obviously saw through Mueller’s ruse.

As another pretext is stripped away, and additional evidence of Obama administration wrongdoing continues surfacing, other lies by Obama’s appointees now become obvious.

None other than the official swamp mouthpiece, the New York Times told us that it was Papadopoulos’ drunken rant in a London pub that moved the FBI to open an investigation in the Trump campaign:

How the Russia Inquiry Began: A Campaign Aide, Drinks and Talk of Political Dirt

WASHINGTON — During a night of heavy drinking at an upscale London bar in May 2016, George Papadopoulos, a young foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, made a startling revelation to Australia’s top diplomat in Britain: Russia had political dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Except, now with the virtual exoneration of Papadopoulos, we know that the only thing he did wrong was make some misstatements to FBI agents.  Even the man he was alleged to have told of Russian dirt on Hillary, Australian diplomat Andrew Downer has said the conversation never went there.
