Another home run by Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures.” If ever there was an interview to be viewed in its entirety it’s this one with George Papadopoulous. After a few minutes of watching, I guarantee you will not be able to put it down. The Russia spy pieces all come together. It should scare the dickens out of all of us and new information is riveting. The interview starts a few minutes from the beginning.
Further on in the program, Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member of the House Intel Committee, speaks about his investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation and why the tale of Joseph Mifsud and George Papadopoulos is key to understanding what happened.
DEVIN NUNES: Well, it’s beyond me. I never knew you could use counterintelligence capabilities, these are the capabilities in our government to go after and target terrorists. I never knew that you could actually go out and use those capabilities to spy on Americans, and we don’t know all of this yet for sure, but we have strong suspicions that that is exactly what was happening. And you really only have to look at the text messages from Strzok and Page who were the FBI agents who were the lead that ultimately served on the Mueller dossier team. They were texting about this stuff.
MARIA BARTIROMO: They wanted an insurance policy.
DEVIN NUNES: That’s right.
Note the timeline for George Papadopoulos. He had several “run ins” with Western (UK, Italian, Australian) intel agents well before he met with Alexander Downer, the Australian diplomat that the FBI claims is the reason they had suspicions about him and other Trump aids.
In truth, Papadopoulos had never met with anybody from Russia prior to the FBI running secret agents at him. And to date, he has never met with anyone from Russia. Yet, we are somehow supposed to believe that the FBI was so “concerned”about Russian efforts to infiltrate the Trump campaign? There was absolutely no evidence to even investigate Papadopoulos.
