Sketchy Simona Mangiante, Papadopoulos Wife (?) Asks President Trump to Interfere in Mueller Investigation…

Given the fact we are certain that George Papadopoulos was working as an informant for Special Counsel Robert Mueller as an outcome of a plea deal in July 2017, it is rather sketchy for his wife-not-wife Simona Mangiante to be requesting a pardon for her husband, the “proactive cooperator“.

Robert Mueller is looking for a reason to create the “obstruction” case against President Trump; a pardon for George Papadopoulos would play right into that effort; and Papadopoulos is working with Mueller.  Hmmmm?  Sketchy. All of it.

      MM you are absolutely right! He and his so called wife can both go pound sand. If Mueller decided he would become a “provactive cooperator”, he can tell the judge to go easy on him.

      In my book, the POS became a traitor to our President and our country when he decided to work for the other side. I could careless if he spends a good chunk of his adult life in prison. His wife is more than welcome to visit as often as she likes.

        Tracy thinks the whole Papadopoulos thing with the wire is evidence that Mueller is a “White Hat” working with Sessions and Trump against the Deep State and the Hillary organization.

        Others see Papadopoulos as proof of the exact opposite.

        • farrier- whatever respect for Tracy Beanz that I had is gone. For someone that has put out a lot of factual information that is backed up by hard copies of documents, she is woefully unable to connect the dots when it comes to Herr Mueller.

          Talk about not being able to see the forest for the trees! How could anyone with even half a brain think for one minute that this ultimate Swamp Devil is a white hat Good Guy???

          Tracy needs to go back and review some of her own research. Mueller has been responsible for high crimes and misdemeanors going way back including everything that was documented by Louie Gohmert in his excellent report.

          Tracy is doing herself a grave disservice by claiming there is even the chance the Grand Inquisitor is a white hat.

            Here’s an example of what can be missed when looking for confirmation of something like this. The big thing about Papadopoulos was that he was never seriously a “foreign policy advisor,” yet Obama had the NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL briefed about the people on that list Trump came up with in early March 2016. Somehow, the Obama people got hold of the list before the media and the general public. Shortly after, Papadopoulos and Page started receiving the Halper/Mifsud/Downer treatments, leading up to Papadopoulos lying like he frequently does.

            Late last week someone asked how the Obama Administration got the list that early. I thought it was hilarious that dumbass Comey thought it was real. Then it hit me that it might be evidence of an INTERNAL SPY in the campaign. Well, there is an article out there, I think the Daily Caller, that JEFF SESSIONS was in charge of the fake foreign policy advisors like Papadopoulos. So, now we have our first logical suspect as a potential leaker of the list to someone in the Obama Administration, or someone who took the list to the Administration. I can’t remember when a candidate’s advisors were subject to a NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL meeting.

            I can’t prove it was Sessions, but he’s a logical suspect since he was Papadopoulos’ “Little Bo Peep” along with all the other fake foreign policy advisors on the list.

            Tracy is the kind of mind that would seize on that unless distracted. The Mueller issue is a distraction. Let the evidence do the talking.

        • farrier: here’s a quote from a Federalist article by Mollie Hemingway, April 19, 2018:

          “Another black mark on Mueller’s record at the FBI was the pursuit of what the bureau dramatically claimed was an Israeli spy ring operating out of the Pentagon. The news broke in August 2004 that a spy working for Israel was in the Department of Defense.

          It turned out that the bureau had gone after a policy analyst who had chatted with American lobbyists at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). Charges were also pursued against two AIPAC employees. Those charges were later dropped and the sentence of the first person was dropped from 13 years to 10 months of house arrest and some community service.”

            Tracy doesn’t want to hear about Mueller’s past in relation to whether or not he is a White Hat in this investigation. She wants people to focus on evidence relating to only the Trump case and such events as Mueller and Rosenstein having a long conversation in the White House with Trump sometime before Mueller was made SC and such things as how Papadopoulos has been handled. She isn’t 100% sure, but in trying to find evidence in support of the idea she can miss more important facts during research.. She is an effective researcher when she hones in, but there is no way to prove this.

        Articles out today claim that Mueller is investigating an Israeli-owned and operated information-gathering company called Wikistrati (?), for actually being a spy shop. Supposed met Trump, Jr. Now Mrs. P is saying that the FBI pressured P to plead guilty to the lying charge versus being charged with spying for Israel. Perhaps the “proactive cooperation” by P was directed at Wikistrati (would fit the no contact with the Trump team and the sealed court filings). Do these threads connect? Time might tell. [I still suspect that Halper baited P with the $3000 “research paper” (perhaps Halper had special requirements for content?) so the FBI could use the paper as evidence of “spying”, thus to make him their spy].

              Actually she does sound Italian to me. Not American (x-th generation) Italian but like a University educated younger Italian female.
              I know quite a number of Italians, most still do not speak English, but for the (young) ones that do it has improved quite a bit. Most older Italians do not speak (nor can even read) English and many that do speak with such an odd accent that it can be difficult to follow what they say.

              Elements in her speech that do sound more Eastern European: the use of L and o, sometimes th.
              But the rest of the accent is fairly typical for a well educated young Italian female. Extra i or y inserted at places and e-s added at the end (or ende as she would saiye). They way Clinton is pronounced is very typical. And then the slurring or the s (sszz).
              Males may sound a bit different, older people quite a bit. You probably would not be able to understand what a lesser educated older person said in ‘English’ and he or she would not be able to form complete sentences anyway.

              Typical Italian (female):
              geiorgje (or any other mix between george and giorgio)
              particuliairyi partikoeliairyi

              The language learned is British English not American yet they rarely hear British or American TV in the original language.
              Her verbal training practice mostly likely comes from Brussels (where she worked before London AFAIK), not Italy. You can barely get useful verbal training in Italy; the accent of even the professor of English of Bologna University around 2000 was so bad that you could hardly understand what she was saying.
              So some elements are ‘EU English’, that is with more a French style accent to the English. All the youngsters from all EU countries speak mostly English between one another now (in international settings like University or EU admin), although the Southerners may still slip into French and the Easterners may slip into German (less common). They all have different accents which can be funny, but you learn to ignore that.

              The L & o maybe more from the region of Italy she came from. Most people I know are from the north of Italy, so I can’t really say.

                Not only are pronunciations different, so is some of the spelling (i.e. music vs. musick). I am waiting to hear back from an acquaintance that is living in Italy right now for her evaluation.

                “Her verbal training practice mostly likely comes from Brussels (where she worked before London AFAIK), not Italy.”

                If you learned English from someone who had an eastern European accent, that would explain a lot.

                People under stress do strange things. However, if innocent these two should have just avoided publicity (like Gen. Flynn) for the time being, instead of doing this, which cast even more uncertainty on them as was previously. Not helpful in their situation.

                  Recently Mangiante has given US TV interviews defending Papadopoulos, who is back in Chicago on bail. Her active media strategy is not without risk, with some wondering why she has chosen to speak out. Sceptical Twitter users accused her of sounding Russian during an appearance on ABC News – an idea she finds ridiculous.

                  Mangiante says she has been to Russia once – for a child protection conference in St Petersburg – and never visited Moscow.

                  Her parents – a professor and a teacher of English – are “scared” about her predicament, which she too finds somewhat bizarre. “I just happened to meet all these people,” she says.

      Wow. I cannot put all of that together. But this may be part of it all:

      Since before the Enron debacle, the CIA has had two curious sources of funding: first, U.S. budget which is opaque and second, their “entrepreneurship” – some say they were involved in entrepreneurship of Afghanistan’s flower industry – not so much tulips as poppies.

      We now know that American sub-contracts a great deal of high-level intelligence work – via FBI / FISA court, access given to contractors to snoop around NSA data base.

      So, here is where Suspicious Cat may be getting that look:
      Large investigations such as Enron, or 9-11, create a pool of individuals familiar with contractor-intelligence interface / how things work.
      CIA has an interface with Deep State politicians.

      Deep State politicians have an interface with CoC, China, etc. In the long run, I see a handful of actors such as CoC and China as string-pullers for the Deep State. Their motive is strictly profit: market access, monopolies, etc. Motivation of Deep State politicians is two-fold: 1 carrot/stick (blackmail/get cut in on deals), 2. remain elected in order to satisfy desire for power. A distant third: serve constituency.

      So, the private intel contractor world is arms-length from the Deep State pols, but is ready to carry out introductions, to be intermediaries, etc., on behalf of Deep State pols, doing this on behalf of powerful string-pullers such as CoC and China.

      This would work very well if a bunch of the actors were readily shifting from government employ such as FBI to private firms – intel or legal – and back. As this Enron legacy story notes.

      Who knows – maybe Enron was Ground Zero because FBI or CIA may have been IN on the Enron rise to Fortune and Fame? Once the burning ship was seen to be going down, they simply shifted to being the prosecutors versus enablers?

      Before at Enron, Ken Lay, Enron founder, was in Federal Power Commission. (My memory said “Department of Energy” but I cannot find that now). Ken knew how government regulation worked.

      Lay and Bush Sr. had a bromance early in Bush’s tenure – you can google this – supposedly over monkeying with electricity prices in California. Here, I see Lay understanding how government regulatory policy can be used to make money, if string-puller industry can collaborate with policy-makers. As always, Congressmen must either be in the loop, or un-suspecting.

      The Mother of all government-regulatory-money-making schemes, Lay was the architect of Cap and Trade. The web has communications form Lay in Kyoto back to his Enron colleagues as the Original Kyoto Protocol was first initiated. 1997. Again, Lay knew how to use government regulatory power to build private business, the Good of the Country be damned.

      Cap – and Trade: the Ground Zero point of discussion for Man-Made Global Warming was the Hockey Stick, a study that modeled influences upon global temperature that provided evidence that, in recent decades, a new influence, human-contributed CO2 from oil/gas, was to blame for the supposed recent up-tick (the hockey stick blade).

      Here is where the Hockey Stick came from: a pair of published studies: “MBH1998″ and MBH1999.” ’98 “authenticated” the principal-components analysis statistical technique used to derive a meaningful signal from the coincidence/overlap of a host of related, but not parallel, data sets across time, and ’99 used that technique to yield the infamous Hockey Stick graph.

      Where did MBH98 and ’99 come from?

      Michael Mann – this work was his dissertation. Here is how this ties in: Mann was supported in his dissertation by the Alexander Hollaender Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship. Where does the money come from for that Scholarship? (Why does a Pre-Doc get funding that has post-doc in its title?)

      Department of Energy. So, DOE supported a dissertation that led directly to the hockey stick. Not so unlikely. The global warming idea had been around a while, and Mann’s mentors were believers.

      Mann’s career, upon publishing ’98 and ’99, is nothing but unlikely skyrocket path.
      He immediately gets named to be an editor of a couple chapters of the underway IPCC 2001 Third Assessment Report, and the Hockey Stick makes its impactful debut there.

      IPCC is THE prominent international group examining global warming. So, Mann leapfrogs over all kinda scientists to be chapter editor of a couple chapters of that report – manmade global warming had been around for a while, but that report was a Ground Zero for international BUY-in.

      So, is man-made global warming just another scheme for profit-motive companies to use regulatory powers to make a buck, while scratching the back of politicians? With some pols and government employees moving fluidly from private investigation agencies to CIA or FBI, and back? The profit-motive actors – China and CoC – need a private intelligence / legal / consulting community – revolving door-like – with the government in order to interface with each other? And everyone knows what the game is? Except the voters?

        Well, yeah. I do thank you for putting it together this way, but this result has actually been obvious since day one to anyone who has been paying attention to this scam. Why did our “Man-Bear-Pig” Gore-baby get involved in the first place? Cap and trade was simply a “create-money-from-nothing” scam.

    One would think that a quick peek into the behind the scenes life of a foul mouthed, supposed mafia cohort, billionaire NYC real estate mogul would turn up all sorts of criminal activity. If not, at least boatloads of sketchy deals, fraud, and business relationships would most certainly surface. The fact that Mueller has to resort to such laughable tactics to manufacture some “impeachable” crime is really quite comical. Good job Mr. Trump. We now see your decades long plan to run for president and save our country, as you have said, when we needed you most. Your business life was probably just a cover for you to give you a position on the world stage, study the deep state tactics, and raise enough money to fund your own campaign in order to not have to trade campaign donations for sketchy political favors.

    I think Obama’s comment (from Rhodes’ new book) that he thinks he was 10-20 years too early was just his way of saying “I would have gotten away with my fundamental changing of America had I been president after Trump was dead.”

        Unfortunately, since Sessions was the shepherd of Page and Papdopoulos, as fake foreign policy advisors, he is a witness to their various antics, so he HAS to be recused. It is Rosenstein who has to recuse as he is a witness to the firing of Comey, which they tried to paint as obstruction. Just how can anyone say this circus of Mueller’s has in any way been obstructed. It just keeps motoring forward. No one lifts a finger to stop it, so how can there be obstruction? How could a pardon of Papadopoulos be obstruction? Didn’t his vaunted wire turn up anything incriminating? The wire recording would live on after the Liar was pardoned, so pardoning him could never be obstruction.

        As long as Mueller shows up for work every morning and proceeds with the investigation unimpeded, the jackass hasn’t been obstructed. This is getting stupid beyond belief.

      Mueller will indict Sessions for lying to Congress if Sessions unrecuses himself. The move to impeach POTUS was predicated on them controlling Sessions. And that is what they have done. That being said, if Sessions unrecuses AND shuts Mueller down simultaneously there is nothing Mueller can do.

    And for what it is worth, the perjury case against Papa is pretty weak. Surprised he folded. The things he was charged with as lies were pretty debatable (when he was on the campaign, how important he thought Mifsud’s connections were, and how important his contacts with some Russian lady were).

    I think all these underemployed schemers are just BSing, so I can see how he didn’t think what he did was serious. That said…he did plead guilty.

    What was the lie that Papa GP pled guilty to telling the FBI? That he’d met Mifsud before rather than after he joined the Trump campaign, both occurring in March 2016. The indictment says Mifsud had no interest in him until he learned that GP had joined Trump’s campaign. So what, GP was puffing over his importance? “Off with his head?”

    So Mifsud had no interest in GP until he was on board with Trump. Now how would the FBI know that? How other than talking to Mifsud himself and crediting his account over GP’s?

    The indictment fails to mention that GP had joined this squirrely London International Law Practice Academy (or whatever it’s called) in late February or early March (after leaving Ben Carson’s campaign when it folded in mid-February), in a position he appears underqualified for, with no apparent responsibilities, and that Mifsud had a senior position at this same place. Looking as if to burnish his resume to get him hired on by the Trump campaign, needing FP “experts,” according the MSM. And, of course, Mifsud went into hiding when GP’s indictment was publicly announced.

    Now we learn that GP’s wife, supposedly Italian, but speaking with an Eastern European accent knew Mifsud, used to work for him before she met GP. Claims she met GP through LinkedIn. And she’s now joined the news cycle pleading for leniency for her hubby, in a Russian accent. Why didn’t Tucker ask her how her husband came to work in London, what was his account of the sequence he was accused of lying about, what she thinks Mifsud was doing?

    And we don’t know who GP spoke to while wearing a wire and working undercover for his handlers, between August and October. Were they his close allies in the Trump campaign? Who was that, exactly? Or were they the never-Trump conspiracy who engaged him, Halper and Mifsud in the first place? It’s all too curious, and a waste of time, waiting for IG reports and indictments. BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM says Q’s latest post. Big week ahead. Well, I hope her Tucker interview doesn’t count as a BOOM.

    It’s just another piece that fits nowhere in the jigsaw puzzle.

So…I think they sent Mifsud in to try to get Papa to promote a Russia meeting. Papa did so. And the monitored it with NSLs and saw Papa reaching out to the campaign. It was all pretty much being pushed by FBI. Trying to get the Trump campaign to bite.

    Mangiante worked for two European parliament officials, Mairead McGuinness and McGuinness’s Italian predecessor Roberta Angelilli. She was also an administrator to the home affairs committee under the presidency of Martin Schulz, then a German MEP and now the leader of Germany’s Social Democrats.

    Gianni Pittella, an Italian European Parliament member and Socialist-Democrat, introduced Mangiante to Mifsud in about 2012.

    Gianni Pittella is one of the few professors at Mifsud’s London Academy of Diplomacy

    At the 2016 DNC convention at Philadelphia Pittella addressed a group of Clinton supporters “I have taken the unprecedented step of endorsing and campaigning for Hillary Clinton because the risk of Donald Trump is too high”

    When Mangiante’s contract expired Pittella suggested she go to work for Mifsud in London. Mifsud offered her a job in 2016 at the London Centre of International Law Practice.

    At around the same time that she started the job, in September 2016, Mangiante received a message on the LinkedIn social network from Papadopoulos. Papadopoulos had worked at the law centre briefly before joining Trump’s campaign.

    “He said ‘I see you work at the centre’. He told me he liked my picture,” she said. The exchange was “really casual”. An attempt to meet fell through.

    After several unsuccessful efforts to get together in London, they met in March 2017 in New York. They hit it off, began dating and fell in love, she says.

That’s ridiculous! Sessions has turned out to be a feckless ineffective “pathetic” bureaucrat. He’s been in office 15 months and has pretty much been useless. Rod Rosenstein is, and has been, the Attorney General for all practical purposes. Sessions had NO right to accept an appointment to AG knowing was going to recuse himself on the most important event the AG’s office would ever undertake. Sessions is worse than a deep state swamp rat. He’s effectively undermining whatever this administration is trying to accomplish by allowing Rosenstein and others to do the dirty work without governance. I’ll bet even the people of the Great State of Alabama are surprised and perplexed by this man’s obvious incompetent job performance. As far fetched as this may sound, I believe there’s a good chance Sessions was an informant in the Trump campaign. A snake in the grass if you will… He’s certainly done a great deal of damage to the President who appointed him.
