Maria Bartiromo Interviews ‘SpyGate’ Predicate George Papadopoulos…

One of several interesting interviews by Maria Bartiromo today surrounding the predicate for surveillance of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.  In this interview Bartiromo interviews George Papadopoulos.

.

The FBI claims their counterintelligence operation known as “Crossfire Hurricane” began in July 2016 based on the activities of Papadopoulos and reports from the U.S. intelligence apparatus (CIA Director John Brennan) who provided an originating “EC” memo.

Overwhelming evidence indicates the 2016 operation against Papadopoulos was an entrapment scheme using Western (U.S, U.K, Italy and Australia) intelligence assets to give the illusion of Russian involvement.  Timeline Below:

 

♦June 2015 Papadopoulos reaches out to Corey Lewandowski for job in Trump Campaign.

♦Sept. 2015 Papadopoulos again reaches out to Corey Lewandowski.

♦Sept. 30, 2015, Michael Glassner informs Papadopoulos campaign not currently hiring foreign policy advisers.  Papadopoulos goes to work for Carson campaign.

[Note: Carson’s campaign is run by Barry Bennett; a DC political consultant partnered with Dick Cheney’s daughter Mary Cheney “BKM Strategies” (Yes, that Dick Cheney).

♦Early Feb. 2016 Papadopoulos leaves Carson campaign.

♦Early Feb. 2016 Papadopoulos joins London Center for International Law Practice (LCILP)

♦March 2, 2016, Papadopoulos emails Trump campaign again, looking for role.

♦March 3, 2016, Sam Clovis sets up interview with Papadopoulos.

♦March 6, 2016, Sam Clovis interviews Papadopoulos.

♦Mid March, 2016, Papdopoulos travels to Rome as part of LCILP role. During visit Papadopoulos introduced to Joseph Mifsud.  Mifsud introduced as professor for London Academy for Diplomacy, London England.

♦March 17,2016, Papadopoulos returns to London.

♦March 21, 2016, President Trump names Papadopoulos amid list of foreign policy advisors, with focus on energy sector.

♦March 24, 2016, Papadopoulos meets Mifsud in London.  Mifsud accompanied by Olgya Polonskya who Mifsud introduced as former student/Putin niece. [sketchy]

♦March 31, 2016, Trump campaign foreign policy team meeting, Washington DC. Trump International Hotel.  [famous table photograph with Papadopoulos, Sessions, Trump]

♦Early April, 2016, Mifsud continues contact w/ Papadopoulos via email.  Ms. Polonskya also emailing Papadopoulos; however, later discovered Mifsud actually writing Polonskya emails.  Papadopoulos returns to London, U.K.

♦April 11, 2016, Mifsud emails Papadopoulos about his upcoming travel to Russia.  Suggests meeting for following day, April 12.

♦April 12, 2016, Papadopoulos and Mifsud meet at Andaz Hotel in London, U.K. This meeting is in advance of Mifsud traveling to Russia.

♦April 18, 2016, Mifsud emails Papadopoulos from Russia.  Introduces Ivan Timofeev.

♦April 25, 2016, Mifsud returns to London after stopover in Rome.

♦April 26, 2016, Papadopoulos and Mifsud meet again at Andaz Hotel in London, U.K.  During meeting Mifsud claims Russians “have dirt” on Hillary Clinton; “emails of Clinton”; and “thousands of emails”.

♦May 6, 2016, Papadopoulos gets call from Christian Cantor (Israeli Embassy) wanting to introduce his ‘girlfriend’ Erika Thompson (Australian Embassy aide to Ambassador Alexander Downer).  They meet at a London Pub.

[NOTE: Mueller cites the content of May 6, 2016, meeting as communicating “clinton emails” from Papadopoulos; however, Mueller conflates and falsely attributes the content material of this Erika Thompson meeting. Mueller attributes content to Ambassador Downer meeting with Papadopoulos on May 10, 2016.  Conflation appears intentional]

♦May 6, 2016, Following initial meeting Papadopoulos gets email from Erika Thompson suggesting meeting with her boss, Australian Ambassador Alexander Downer.

♦May 10, 2016, Papadopoulos meets Ambassador Downer at the Kensington Wine Rooms in London, England. MEDIA CLAIM: “Downer met with George Papadopoulos, where Papadopoulos — having been introduced through two intermediaries, Christian Cantor and Erika Thompson — mentioned that Russians had material on Hillary Clinton.”  Both Papadopoulos and Downer refute their May 10th meeting discussed Clinton emails.  Papadopoulos notes that Ambassador Downer is recording their conversation.

♦May 11, 2016, Ambassador Downer files notes to Australian government about the content of the conversation and the outlook of the Trump campaign foreign policy.

♦July 2016, Alexander Downer decided to inform the United States Embassy in London, England about his conversation with Papadopoulos, upon the release of the Democratic National Committee’s e-mails by WikiLeaks on July 22, 2016.

♦July 26, 2016, Mueller says (pg 89, fn465) Australia informs U.S. government of Papadopoulos statements about Clinton emails.

♦July 31, 2016, A few days after receiving notification from Australia, the U.S. intelligence “EC” [Electronic Communication (possibly authored by Peter Strzok)] is used to begin FBI counterintelligence operation “Crossfire Hurricane.”

♦August and Sept., 2016, U.S. intelligence officials use FBI/CIA operatives (ie. spies), including a woman named Azra Turk (alias), together with FBI/CIA operative informant Stefan Halper to coordinate multiple operations against Trump campaign.

      Well technically he was with the Trump campaign when he met Mifsud, but just barely, right? The traitors worked very quickly to set him up, just days after he was interviewed by Clovis to join the Trump team. The traitors probably thought he was young and stupid. What a disappointment for them, he could smell the rats. The best move was leaving the $10k in Europe so that when the Feds were waiting for him at Dulles and wanted to grab the money it wasn’t on him. 🙂

        It doesn’t really make sense, does it? Who was PapaD working for that they would set him up in this way and he would go for it? He quit his job and they direct him to Rome, even though they are upset with him? And yet, he didn’t take the bait about Hilary’s emails, so the plot has failed…and yet he got 2 weeks in jail? Was his role in this so innocent?

          Yeah, how could the FBI, CIA set up a scam entrapment that fast? All they need is a phone call to mifsud? That isn’t the ususl way a bureaucracy works. Maybe they were spying on Ben Carson, thinking he could be the VP candidate, and papadoc just happened to land in the Trump campaign? That would mean that there are other “setups” or spies in all repub campaigns, and that there were other, as yet undisclosed” entrapments and/or spies in the Trump campaign. If Papadoc was an addon to the Trump spy list, that means the FBI/CIA could hold back one of their infiltrator spies in the Trump campaign. Likely at least one “deep cover” spy, who still may be present. .

      According to the book, PapaD got the job on 3/6, told Idris at his employment, Idris insisted he go to Rome where he introduced PapaD to Mifsud.

      My guess is PapaD was already on the radar (along with Flynn) because he wrote a paper suggesting the Israeli nat. gas pipeline go through Cyprus and Greece NOT Turkey. In the book he says he was told the State Dept was not happy about this recommendation.

      As Military Intel. Dir. Flynn notified the Obama Admin that he had intel suggesting a caliphate would rise if we armed Syrian rebels. We armed Syrian rebels. A caliphate arose. Trump gave a foreign policy speech blaming the rise of ISIS on Obama (3 months after Flynn joined campaign). I think both he and PapaD were on the radar BEFORE they joined Trump.

I think Trump was led into nominating Kavanaugh and the Repubs who talked him into it were STUNNED at the Dems response to Kavanaugh. I am, too. Since going on the court, Kavanaugh has been the mini me of Roberts, so I see no reason why the Dems shouldn’t be totally happy with him.

      Absolutely! I think the light bulb regarding the worldwide coup finally went off for me after the last few days.

      I knew it was world wide but couldn’t really understand why. I knew Globalism played a huge part but now I realize, at least IMHO, that it was the entire European Union, and especially NATO, angry about their power being threatened..afraid that Nationalism might catch on with others besides Americans. Brexit really pissed them off, as they could see the writing on the wall that their citizens were rising up against their elitist, corrupt asses.

      Donald John Trump was the ultimate threat to their power and bank accounts. His election threatened to expose everything they have been doing to screw their citizens for decades. He had to be destroyed before their NWO was. So they ALL worked with Barrack Obama and team, to make sure he would go down. He threatened not only the American power structure but all the world governments power as well.

      I shudder every time I think how close they came to pulling this off. I know God above had a hand in making sure that President Trump was elected and remains in office today.

          Is so, and it is obvious you are right, why has no-one asked the FBI and CIA for ALL records of surveillance of political candidates since 2012 when Sally Yates prevented the Inspector General from reviewing the obama administration’s spying behavior?
          Not Judicial Watch, not Devin Nunes, not Jim Jordan, not PDJT’s lawyers, no news organization (FOX/WSJ/…)
          The spying is likely massive. The files are likely massive, like the legendary J. Edgar Hoover Files on congress long before digital electronic spying was possible (IIRC, he liked to listen to Martin L King recordings).
          There must even be files on “loyal” democrat schemers including Jerry Nadler, Chuck schumer, nancy pelosi, dianne chi-spy-fi, and cummings.
          No one is even asking. Just a request by congress, now the senate, would mean they have to be refused and approximate generic scope identified. .

PapaD goes to jail, Flynn is awaiting sentencing, Mifsud has vanished and Page wasn’t even indicted. Stinks to high heaven. That’s how stupid Mueller thinks we are. The subject of the FISA warrant is the ONLY one who wasn’t indicted. Was he even questioned?

He outsmarted the “seasoned” “intelligence” operatives.

      I just don’t see Papadopoulos being anything more than what he seems on the surface. A young and low-level energy analyst that caught the wrong people’s attention. His media appearances really don’t have any tells. His original career is likely ruined, which is why he’s milking his ten minutes of fame for a book and the media circus.

      The CIA and FBI clearly checked into his background and believed he would make a perfect patsy and target for entrapment. He was likely already on the CIA’s radar before he had even thought about working for Trump for one reason – one of his papers about an energy pipeline to Europe had geopolitical implications.

    Some random thoughts and opinions.

    – The FISA warrants were only sought to do two things:
    1. “Legalize” the “counter-Intelligence investigation” that was COMPLETELY ILLEGAL
    2. Make up for the loss of the contractors illegal access to electronic surveillance.

    This goes back to 2010 and the Tea Party. The Democrats suffered a bloodbath at the polls in 2010, especially in the House. The rise of the Tea Party SCARED THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS out of Democrats AND Republicans. This was a grass-roots rebellion that they could not control through normal political means. So, Obama used the IRS to shut down the Tea Party organizing. If you remember, there were Republicans who got fingered in that also. The hearings on the IRS/Tea Party Targeting started getting ugly, then that investigation died in it’s track.

    I believe that is when Obama and his administration started REALLY breaking the law (they already were in the IRS).

    I believe they started the illegal Electronic Surveillance in the lead up to the 2012 Elections. My first two exhibits are John Roberts and Mitt Romney. John Roberts inexplicably goes off the rails and saves ObamaCare in the Summer of 2012. Then, Mitt Romney has the opportunity bury Obama in the 2nd debate. Romney absolutely tanked it. I believe those were test runs to see what they could get away with.

    Obama was determined to cement his legacy AND the Democrats being in control of the Government for a long, long time. So they began setting up the Intelligence Apparatus to assist Hillary Clinton. When Admiral Rogers initiated the audit, people deep in the administration found out and became alarmed. They knew they “could” get found out.

    On April 18th, 2016, Admiral Rogers shut down contractor access to the Intelligence Database. The next day, April 19th, 2016, Donald Trump won a landslide victory in New York, virtually sealing the GOP nomination. The loss of Illegal Contractor Access was a huge blow and kept them somewhat in the dark. They had to get the FBI and their informant network involved to keep tabs on Trump. Hello, Halper and Downer and the other coup plotters.

    But as the summer turned into fall, they kept getting more desperate and more desperate. The Clinton Email Scandal was an ENOURMOUS driver of the actions of the coup plotters. Clinton was a dead duck, legally. They knew it. So they told Comey to let her go and tried to use the media to pull Clinton across the finish line.

    The day Admiral Rogers went to Trump to tell him what was happening…. I can only imagine what Clapper, Brennen and Comey were thinking.

    Trump is fighting to drain the swamp. Obama, Clinton, Clapper, Brennen, Comey and the rest of the gang are fighting to stay out of jail. They will pay any bribe, tell any lie, set-up any person, do WHATEVER IT TAKES to stay out of jail.

      More or less. From their viewpoint, Obama and his reputation must be protected at all costs. He’s going to be the Democrats’ de facto leader for decades given his age and a symbol of the party drawing in young minorities. If the Republicans were truly smart, they would expose some of Obama’s personal failings sooner rather than later.

      I believe Comey is the least politically connected of this gang and the most vulnerable. The cryptic messages on Twitter and the like from him scream a desperate man in over his head. He better have saved up some blackmail info from his days as FBI chief, because I see him in real legal jeopardy.

    Here is where the FBI’s “had to do it” excuse completely falls apart.

    By any reasonable measure, even if the FBI had “legit” suspicions that people like Chris P. were possibly compromised, they would have gone to the Trump Team, and given them support early on that protects them from any influence or compromise. That’s their job to serve and protect the United States.

    The only reason to take the route they did take, was because they weren’t trying to protect the United States. They were framing and entrapping US Citzens to overthrow the presidential election/results.

        I think this strikes to the reaction from Meuller himself. He thought he laid it out that even minus real evidence Congress has what they needed to continue with an investigation that would execute the insurance policy. I believe this is all part of that policy albeit that the ideal objective was to execute the claim on that policy in September of 2016 by getting PDJT off the ballot; Mifsud will ultimately confirm this IMO. Unfortunately for Mueller this is taking a turn, thus the March 27 letter crying foul to Mr. Barr who deftly is if not controlling the narrative is at least ensuring it doesn’t run hard left (impeachment). The left and the media are disarmed at this point and have to fall on impugning Mr. Barr. I suspect what will now happen is Mr. Meuller will get implicated in running a failed investigation complete with violations and the messaging will be that strzok, page, McCabe et al undermined what should have been a slam dunk on impeachment proceedings. Dems are hitting the reset as we speak and not only have to discredit Mr. Barr in order to distract from a truth reveal, but they have to discredit Mr. Meuller in order to reactivate the “real” investigation. Just my opinion, but I think this will be the crux of why indictments ARE coming…the pressure is far too great NOT to clean up their dirty laundry to start anew.

      Because the set up failed and they don’t want to highlight their failure? That was the reason they grab him at the airport. The intent probably was to find the money on him then use that obvious illegal act to turn the screw and get him to compose. Once he showed up without the money they had to find a reason to detain him hence the he lied to FBI charge.
      As I said up thread, the members of the cabal are corrupt to the core. They assumed everyone else is as corrupt as they are. Hence the traps they set out for Papadopoulos.

  11. After seeing this interview, it seems to me that they were already spying on the Trump campaign in 2015. They picked Papadopoulos as one of their targets to entrap. They now had to get him hired by the Trump campaign. In steps Sam Clovis, who abruptly quit the Perry campaign to work for Trump. This completely shocked Perry’s people, because Clovis, a former military intel officer, was very anti-Trump. And then a few months later, Clovis hires Papadopoulos. How convenient. Of course I could be dead wrong too!

      Clovis helped Whitaker get a job with Sessions and eventually become acting AG when Cohen was raided. Whitaker was the chairman of Clovis’ own campaign back in 2014 for state treasurer in Iowa.

      Here’s another interesting tidbit about Clovis:

      Clovis is “an important witness in the Russia probe,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the incoming chair of the House Intelligence Committee, wrote. That’s no exaggeration. Just look to Papadopoulos’ plea documents provided by Mueller in federal court. Clovis served as Papadopoulos’ supervisor. When Papadopoulos told Clovis of his initial contacts with the Russians, Clovis was very supportive, telling the young national security adviser “Great work.” Papadopoulos later proposed to arrange a back-channel, “off-the-record” meeting between Trump campaign representatives and senior Russian officials. In June 2016, when Papadopoulos emailed Paul Manafort about his efforts with the Russians, Manafort referred him to Clovis who Manafort described as “running point.” You read that right. In mid-August 2016, Clovis instructed him: “I would encourage you” and another foreign policy advisor to the Campaign to “make the trip[], if it is feasible.” Three days after Papadopoulos’ guilty plea was made public, Clovis withdrew from consideration for a Senate-confirmed position in the administration; his nomination hearing was already scheduled and would have taken place the following week.
