Interesting Tweets From Representative Mark Meadows and FBI Target George Papadopoulos…

Earlier today House Judiciary Committee member Mark Meadows (hopefully the next chairman) tweeted out a troubling concern regarding the FBI and George Papadopoulos. Additionally, Meadows sent the Presiding FISC Judge Rosemary Collyer a letter of inquiry and notification from the committee. [More on that in another post]

Meadows notes there is a likelihood the FBI have tapes of Papadopoulos as part of their counterintelligence scheme to target the Trump campaign.  The importance of this comes from within the timeline of events in July 2017, when President Trump was in office – and AFTER the Robert Mueller special counsel was in place.  ie. “The insurance policy.”

In response to the FBI issues; and giving a peek at the likely closed-door testimony; George Papadopoulos responded via twitter drawing attention to the background of a series of events CTH previously outlined.  It would appear Mr. Papadopoulos is now aware the FBI was conducting a sting operation, and setting him up using an FBI/CIA asset.

On page #9 of the Papadopoulos Sentencing Memo from Special Counsel Robert Mueller there’s an interesting paragraph about a $10,000 payment made to George Papadopoulos.

(pdf link)

The Daily Caller, via Chuck Ross, dug into that payment and outlined the specifics :

[…] The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned that a man named Charles Tawil gave Papadopoulos $10,000 during a meeting in an Israeli hotel room in July 2017.

Sources familiar with the matter told TheDCNF Tawil flew to the Greek island of Mykonos to meet Papadopoulos and his now-wife, Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos. Tawil invited the pair to Israel, but Mangiante Papadopoulos stayed behind.

Papadopoulos gave the money to an attorney in Greece before traveling back to the U.S., a source told TheDCNF on the condition of anonymity. Papadopoulos was arrested at Dulles International Airport on a return trip from overseas on July 27, 2017.  (read more)

CTH dug a little deeper – Mr. Charles Tawil, the guy who reached out to Papadopoulos in Greece; and who ultimately gave Papadopoulos $10,000 in cash; was a previous intelligence asset of the CIA and FBI.

SEE WIKILEAKS Cables (circa 2006): Paragraph #8, note:

“These undisclosed sources told Zuma that American citizens (not connected with the U.S. Government) were involved. This in part, coincides with another Embassy contact, Charles Tawil (protect), who told our Economic Counselor on November 29 that Zuma had received information from the mother of the King of Swaziland about CIA attempts to kill Zuma using poisoned clothes from the FBI” (link)

Who was the FBI Director in 2006?  Why, Robert Mueller of course.

The $10,000 payment to Papadopoulos was almost guaranteed to be a sting operation; a set-up.

Federal agents were waiting for Papadopoulos at the airport upon his arrival and re-entry into the U.S.  If Mr. Papadopoulos had carried that $10k into the U.S. without declaring a U.S. treasury filing, the FBI/DOJ would have nailed him on a treasury violation.

Bringing $10,000 (or more) cash into the U.S., without reporting, is major trouble; add into that aspect the likelihood the set-up included use of an intelligence asset, and the issue can be compounded into laundering money.  That’s just the type of leverage Robert Mueller was looking for:

[…] Stanley said Papadopoulos arrived on a Lufthansa flight from Munich that touched down at about 7 p.m. on July 27, and the FBI intercepted him as soon as he got off the plane.

“He was arrested before he got to Customs and he was then held at the airport before being brought to a law enforcement office,” Stanley recalled. (link)

The Mueller directed federal agents were waiting for him; but P-dop left the cash in Greece.  I suspect Papadopoulos likely sensed something was askew.  The absence of the cash foiled the FBI’s initial plan and that’s likely why they kept him for questioning.

Jail records obtained by POLITICO show that Papadopoulos was booked at the city detention center in Alexandria, Virginia, at 1:45 a.m. the next day.  (link)

It was a classic set-up; a classic entrapment sting operation.

Back to the Daily Caller:

[…] Papadopoulos and Tawil met through an Israeli political strategist named David Ha’ivri.

Ha’ivri told TheDCNF said that he introduced the pair “at my own initiative” to facilitate a business deal involving an oil and gas project in the Aegean and Mediterranean seas.

Ha’ivri said that Tawil “is a part time consultant for companies that operate in Africa and Middle East.” He believed when he introduced Tawil to Papadopoulos that the former Trump aide had “good connections” in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East.

[…] Mysterious encounters have become a theme for Papadopoulos, a 30-year-old energy consultant who joined the Trump campaign in early March 2016 after a stint on the Ben Carson campaign.

Papadopoulos, who lives in Chicago, has met with several key players in the Russia investigation.

In an interview in June with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Mangiante Papadopoulos described several “shady characters,” who she said approached her husband during and after the 2016 presidential campaign.

Without naming Tawil, she mentioned “someone we met in Mykonos, an Israeli person who flew to Mykonos to discuss business.”  (read more)

Summary:  George Papadopoulos and his wife Simone Mangiante approached in Greece by a known CIA/FBI operative, Charles Tawil.  Mr. Tawil enlists George as a business consultant, under the auspices of energy development interests, and hands him $10,000 in cash to take back to the U.S.  Upon arrival at the Dulles airport Robert Mueller had FBI agents waiting.  Papadopoulos was stopped and searched; however, he never had the cash because he smartly left it in Greece with his lawyer. Further:

[W]hen he was arrested at Dulles Airport on July 27 after coming off a flight from Munich, prosecutors had no warrant for him and no indictment or criminal complaint. The complaint would be filed the following morning and approved by Howell in Washington.

And when prosecutors filed the complaint the next day they got a spoken order from Howell to seal it, but followed up with a written request that they could take to the magistrate in Alexandria, where they showed up almost an hour later than she expected.

All of it suggests something of a scramble, rather than a carefully prepared plan to take Papadopoulos into custody. (more)

The FBI who met Papadopoulos at the airport had no warrant, no indictment and no criminal complaint…. because they believed George would be carrying the evidence they would need to structure their legal leverage.

The FBI behavior became a scramble, and the DOJ needed their hastily constructed indictment to be sealed, because their initial leverage fell through.  The $10,000 was a set up.

It is important again to note here that this activity took place in July 2017.  Again, we note that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein WOULD HAVE TO HAVE BEEN notified of the airport operation and part of the decision-making for the DOJ rushed indictment.

      Carter Page still smells like a low-level spook to me that was a bit player. I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw him. He is someone’s intel asset.

      Most of his public appearances on Fox and such look like theater to me by someone that isn’t a very good actor.

      People should realize there were likely more intel assets inside Trump’s campaign than we know about – the Establishment Deep State was deathly scared of his independence since they had no leverage over Trump. It’s why they’ve waged war on him non-stop since earning the Republican nomination.

      I think that the Meadows letter to the FISC , linked from this post-https://www.scribd.com/document/391986413/Letter-From-Rep-Meadows-to-the-U-S-District-Judge-Rosemary-M-Collyer
      has put the spotlight squarely upon the DOJ-OIG, Judge Collier and the Chief Justice.

    Sundance , Id like to pass on to our fellow treepers there is a website called Target Early, which is calculating actual early voting that has already taken place. Florida shows about a 105k early vote lead for GOP registered voters. Ohio also shows similair numbers. Pa shows about a 50,000 early lead for GOP registered voters. Since DJTs numbers amongst GOP voters are around 90%, this bodes fairly well early.

      No disrespect to your comment, but I fail to understand how early voting totals show anything other than the numbers that won’t be voting on the actual election day. The more people that vote early just means they won’t be voting later. The actual final totals that are compiled following election day are all that matter.

      MutantB,
      I hope those numbers are right on. On election day even more wins on the Right side. The socialists may show some progress early until the Republicans get off work and go vote. Hopefully that will make dim’s heads explode, Crying, hissy fits, wailing and gnashing of teeth will commence about 9 pm. Let’s hope no real rioting, but do not be surprised if Antifa/BLM/ Occupy whatever is not on overtime that night and next days. Patriots keep your heads on a swivel and your powder dry. Be righteous and fear not.

    Just did a quick count. In 41 states with early voting. Gop registrnats whove already voted are leading in 24 of those states. AZ has a 125k vote lead for GOP registered voters so far in early voting. RATS lead in 17 states, but in 3 of them the leads are slim(Iowa, No Carolina, Colorado,). RAT voters in North dakota have numbered under 1800 so far, compared to 48k GOP voters, so it looks like Hide Scank is going to get an enforced retirment. If these numbers hold up GOP will pick up4-5 Senate seats and likely even keep the house.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned already in the comments. Dan Bongino does a masterful job in saying how the arrest of “PapaD” was on a probable cause basis. That’s the basis that a cop on the beat uses if he sees something suspicious. He explains it’s very unusual for an FBI officer to arrest people this way. They usually have a warrant. That’s why they arrested him on a probable cause basis on a Martha Stewart type violation.
