The Durham Investigation Moves Slowly but Surely
"The Durham investigation let's just say is not moving at a speedy pace. But in its excruciating attention to detail, it is showing us things little by little bit. We didn't know before. Now, we've known that there was a dossier compiled by a British agent named Christopher Steele, the so called Steele dossier, and we know that the dossier is full of lies and false information intended to frame the Trump campaign and make it look like Trump was colluding with Russia. We also know that the deep state, the FBI, took the information in the dossier and without notifying the so called Pfizer court. This is the court that gives warrants to secretly do surveillance of people, surveillance of people like Carter page, George papadopoulos, our friend George, and so all of these shenanigans have been coming out one by one by one. But what was not known fully was, well, who started this? I mean, who was the who was the initiator, the author of this whole operation? And it seems like Durham is working his way back. What we now know is that the author of this operation was basically the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Investigative Reporter Julie Kelly on the Criminalization of Conservatism
"Julie Kelly. Welcome to America first one on one. Hi Seth. Thank you for having me on. I appreciate it. We're going to go through all the incredible things that you have documented in your investigative journalism and American greatness. The specific cases Americans should know about. But let's start with the 50,000 foot picture. I didn't come up with this phrase. I use it every day on the radio show. Do you believe is it hyperbole to say that what we are witnessing in the United States is an attempt to criminalize conservatism? No, it absolutely is accurate. And I think that that's something that really started in the Trump era, what we're seeing is just really have a progression of crossfire hurricane, which started in July of 2016. What explain explain cross fire hurricane for those who don't live in the swamp, don't follow the minutiae of the weaponization of law enforcement and intelligence. What is operation crossfire hurricane and who did it target? It's a great point. Thanks for saying that, because, you know, we throw away throw these terms around like everyone is supposed to know. So crossfire hurricane is the counterintelligence probe that Jim Comey's FBI opened up against four Trump campaign associates, Mike Flynn, George papadopoulos, Carter page and Paul Manafort. And that was really just the conduit to spy infiltrate sabotage the Trump campaign. And that resulted in a Pfizer warrant against Carter page where the FBI and DOJ went to the secret court that is supposed to root out foreign terrorists called Carter page a foreign agent of Russia got a fisa warrant to spy on him that was in October 2016. And that just really accelerated this criminalization of Donald Trump, his associates, then his cabinet, his administration, and now we have almost 5 years later, four and a half years later. Now criminalizing his supporters and his

Loyola Law School professor Jessica Levinson says This is a breathtaking list. The pardons that President Trump issued here really have nothing to do with the national interest or with trying to fulfill justice. They have to do with President Trump's personal proposals and personal game. Trump also pardoned four men who worked as security guards for Blackwater and had been convicted in relation to the

Trump grants full pardon to Russia probe figure George Papadopoulos
"Granting 15 pardons. This includes full pardons to two men who were convicted in the Mueller investigation. George Papadopoulos and Alex Vander is one tough.

Stew. Gators Gators from from the the special special counsel's counsel's office office also also pardoned pardoned former former GOP GOP congressman congressman Duncan Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins, both convicted on corruption related charges. I asked Kyle Cheney, congressional reporter for Politico if President Trump pardoning Papadopoulos and Vandals. Juan is rebuke of the Mueller. Russia investigation question. I mean, we saw him pardon Mike Flynn a couple of weeks ago, which was sort of part of that long running effort. He's also commuted the sentence of Roger Stone, his longtime ally. Both of those men were caught. Up in the Mueller investigation and convicted or pleaded guilty. And in this case, you know Evander's Juan is sort of a bit player. But Papadopoulos is very interesting because he was the whole basis for the origin of the investigation. His interactions with the Russia linked figure led the FBI to probe the Trump campaign first place. So this is really the origin story of the Mueller probe and Trump pardoning him is really a shot at its existence in the first place. Other convictions of Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins essentially centered around corruption that they were convicted on. Why do you think the president chose toe? Pardon these two former congressman? This is pure, rewarding political loyalty here. I mean, Chris Collins was the first member of Congress to endorse President Trump and his 2015 2016 campaign. Hunter with the second, So it's pretty clear political payback here for loyalists and you know, doing in the lame duck when it would have been politically explosive to do it earlier. It's sort of a tried and true thing and other presidencies. But clearly what happened here, Kyle, I know that many of the president's supporters defend these decisions He's making by saying he's used the pardon less often than many other presidents. I guess that is true. But are you expecting Morva? Four? Mr Trump leaves office. I would anticipate it. I think it is fair to say he's used it less often, but he's used it more to three or or he let off the hook. People who are closely allied with him, like very deeply connected with him personally. In terms of politics. And yes, there are others out there that have not been issued People like Paul Manafort, Steve Bannon and others that we had on our watch list for a while now, so I would expect this is not the final round of the That's politico Congressional reporter Kyle Cheney. 10 13.

His name became very familiar every American about two years ago and boy did he go through a roller coaster. Ride I good morning. How are you today morning? John on doing great. How about you I find very you? You're out in California here in California where we're doing a lot of events a lot of TV out here Speaking to my Constituents that I'll be Hope hopefully representing and it's been a tremendous raw whirlwind The last couple of years. That's absolutely right thousand people that don't know you are running for Congress in a year's Orange County And you were running for field. SISI RESIGNED TO COUPLE OF WEEKS MONTHS AGO and look out that. Yeah so I'm a I'm going to be running. I am running announce my candidacy Formerly on Fox and friends. I filed my paperwork offer. California's twenty fifth Congressional district correct. It's a district which was represented by the Republican Party for twenty six years So it's one of those few remaining Republican enclaves in this great rage state of California Before Katie Hill took the seats a couple years ago we all know Katie hills story her infamous story and her Behavior Hager that resulted in her ultimate resignation. And I saw an opportunity given that I live right next door to the district. I spent a lot the time in the district since I've moved over to California a year and a half ago and I had a great team reached out and say why don't you run for Congress and Bring it back to the Republican Party. And that's exactly what I'm hoping that bill now putting Americans that go. No you were put through a roller coaster ride. The last three years won't started when you're working for trump for president in twenty sixty. You know in a minute or so to tally. American people What you went through? Yeah that's true because unfortunately most of the American people know me Because of What I like to call the witch hunt? I definitely go. The president's statements ends when he calls When he called the molar probe a witch hunts and it all started in February of twenty six a month after I left The Ben Carson campaign and I joined the trump campaign and all of a sudden. I'm In London and meeting with various foreign diplomats and governments and I see that they all have the cards stacked up against the campaign and they all and they obviously all have their horse in the race they wanted to win and that was Hillary Clinton so whether it was the Ukrainians which we've obviously had a lot of reporting recently only on Ukraine's involvement in Possibly interfering in the election in twenty sixteen the British. Australians the Italians now These are all governments that were reaching out to basically trying to probe me for Info one donald trump campaign and later we found out. And that's actually what the whole. Durham WPRO business Actively trying to figure out is lured these foreign governments out to get the campaign from the beginning and set us up. And that's exactly what it looks like given that many. FBI officials are currently under investigation for criminal purposes including Kevin Kline Smith who was the the OJ attorney who interviewed me February twenty seventeen and obviously John Durham his pro more sense of criminal investigation after he Went to Italy where he spoke to Italian officials about this infamous professor. Who was meeting with me more characterized as a Russian agent so it was an incredible story? be be reverberations from twenty sixteen are still being felt to this day and in my opinion the scandal that happened in twenty sixteen is is probably going to affect twenty twenty more so than even trade talks with China. It almost looked like the the tempted to on the United States of America. Yeah under president of the United States Do you think that that the whole thing. It should be cute up at Justice Department. Or do you think they'll they'll they'll take a few victims chop them away and then life goes on while it's very interesting because there's a there's two things happening at the moment as a AH Durham's probe advances and now it's a criminal. Investigation and Horowitz is about to releases Long Way to the I G report. We were getting reports in the conservative media. Accurate reports that spies like Stefan Helper And the Pentagon office that was funding him to spy. Why on the campaign is under investigation? Right now by Durham. We also the same day or have information from the I G that Kevin Kline Smith Smith was the OJ attorney was altering documents to get Faisal warns on individuals associated to the campaign which is a criminal act so we have that information and then the next day. We have newspapers which you know. I respect The New York Times and the Washington Post basically providing cover for was that behavior of the FBI in twenty sixteen and saying Oh. We already know what's coming out in the G. report nothing bad is GonNa happen and You know basically providing uncover. I don't believe that I don't think The I G has investigated for over a year and a half and they're basically going to come out and say the the I did nothing wrong. There's a reason as I explained that you also have the Durham probe which is looking into the origins of the investigation. And how that whole thing started and it's not gonNA be pleasant for the FBI and It's an unfortunate situation because You know the very trust we hold as Americans in the institutions that we think for Protects us are now possibly going to be hurt and You know we need to replace people over there then so be it because We need to reinstall that Revered Reputation tation. y'All ones had how high up you could go. I mean my opinion told me was involved. Muller was evolve. Here's what I really think And the reason that's very confusing story is because people are focusing on the trees in the forest they're only focusing on individuals Peter Struck Lisa page etc.. They're not looking at the global nature of what happened in twenty sixteen with the involvement of foreign governments right now with this whole Ukraine scandal that all starts from two thousand sixteen and I think in order to get foreign earn government involvement to interfere in a domestic political campaign as we now have evidence happens that had to go directly to the top I think the CIA was running this with the White House. And eventually the fake information that they were providing to the I to get warrants this how this whole thing down and that's exactly why I think the I G report is only the start and Durham is going to finish it off and get to the bottom of what really happened. And he has the ability to see people. People are misunderstanding. The power of the issue versus for the I G does not have the power to empanel ranch jewelry to issue subpoenas or even prosecute individuals yet. They still discovered criminal wrongdoing. Durham has that ability forty. And he's going after the CIA and that's why the CIA is terrified. And you see Brennan basically coming on hinged on national television trying to explain the Durham's probe is a nothing burger and there's no reason to fear anything even though he's lawyering up as we speak well I. It's scary. What oh you went through I even hurt story when you That you were set up a ten thousand dollars and did we. I put it was ten inches lifting for ten thousand and other times. It's complete at noon as brought that issue up to Muller during his customer you know a Lotta people quickly forgotten all about Bob Muller when he was You know the most talked about individual in the world after he testified and there was one person. Yes and actually to Congressman Jim Jordan. Nuno's that really knew my story very well. Obviously read my book and it probably hurt me on TV and they were asking the pertinent questions. uh-huh that had to do with these various setups and part of that was ten thousand dollars which currently is under scrutiny by both Congress and I believe the DOJ will be looking at it soon to bet your book. You just mentioned your your book. I it came out our couple months ago. It's called deep state target. How I got caught in the crosshairs of the PUCK and bring president trump in my wildest dreams? I never thought I'd be writing a book like this but but by face Ways I ended up Writing as a book has been received very. Well it's probably more relevant now than even what it was first published because getting into exactly exactly what's John Durham is looking into what these foreign governments were. All doing. Which State Department officials were involved in Y and what the motivations were for these foreign governments actually get skin in the game to basically try and hurts it presidential campaign it obviously has backfired backfired? I explained why the president has called out the UK. Australia Italy Ukraine. And you know. Initially when my book was published in that was talking about office people were kind of questioning if there was any truth behind it and then all of a sudden you have even the mainstream media explaining that John Durham and Some of these other investigators are following my leads into How this whole spying operation against the campaign happened I covered in my book the President and has endorsed it which I'm very grateful for and It's great to see it come to life and headlines Weekly just before we about to congressional race when Moreton what time you're running for the congressional seat that you know has As Syrian up and your opponent is who right now I'm dealing with To to Republicans I have to get through I and We might see A and Steve Nights and and These are good guys. Steve Knight was the congressman before Katie Hill he is a never-trumper and and Mike Garcia. Who's the other Republican who I'm dealing with war veteran excellent guy another never-trumper and we can have agrees type of Republicans or us in this district? When I go and talk to The people in the district. They are just telling me look you. You need to work with the president to get things done because if you don't And we have another rhino like Steve Nights. We're going to lose this district conservative district I'm running on policy. I'm running on a strong middle class economy on the strong foreign policy. And I wanNA rebuild the feeling infrastructure and the district and in California in general some of the domestic issues that are affecting my District are wildfires as you probably have seen in the media over the last month or so. We have homeless problems. We have water issues. We have the state of California which is essentially become the resistance state. You know we have state here. We're probably the most potential out of any other state in the in the Union. And they have instead of working with the president advanced policies and make a real life changes for the constituents. They're suing the federal government's fifty times instead of providing water to farmers in the district that I wanNA represents represents To continue to make California the bread basket of the country Gavin newsom is deciding the sue the federal government because The the environmentalists say. Hey that specific fish will go extinct if foul water goes to the farmers so we're dealing with a lot of this kind of stuff here. People are tired of it. There's a reason I I jumped into this race. Because people want a person who's GONNA run on policies and The people ahead of party not the other way around. And unfortunately as we've seen through this impeachment sham the Democrats are looking out for their constituents. They're looking to do anything. Possible with as flimsy evidence as possible to impeach impeach this President and Undo Twenty sixteen election. And that's not going to have them George Popadopoulos thank you so much coming. You're under Sunday morning. Joy to rest of victory. We could have Let's talk real so thank you so much on and happy Thanksgiving and I'll talk to you soon appreciate.

B. I. said prompted them to open up a investigation that became known as operation crossfire hurricane in which gave us this whole bogus Russian collusion narrative for two and a half years so he is the starting point of this entire investigation and in the great lawmakers who questions director Mahler drew out some very important information during the hearing which is they kept asking why didn't you charge Mister if you believe he lied the man who starts the entire investigation you don't charge come in but you can use them of lying and director Mahler could not provide an answer why you charged everybody else of lying but but not miss you and of course that predated by one day the story I had which in which missions lawyer says John there on the new turn US attorney rubber investigating the Russia collusion misbehavior that abuses by the potential boosted by the F. B. I. has reached out and sought an interview with Missy what does that tell us it means that the justice department isn't confident with Mahler's conclusions about Mr into we know from Mister lawyer that Mister lawyer is prepared to provide evidence of the justice department said back but here's the bell for this that his client wasn't some Russians dudes he was a long term western intelligence cooperators collaborator who was passed passed directed to approach George Papadopoulos an offer to make introductions in Russia meaning it could be a set up a western intelligence set up that would flip the entire case on its head okay now it's listed in and it goes to the heart of the issue something we have discussed from the get go to eat where people talk about it as the five buys an alliance our intelligence with United States Great Britain Italy and Australia Australian right and by the way interestingly did we out source some intelligence gathering in ways that would circumvent American law but our friends do it for us but basically ordering it done for us is how big a story is that likely to become here that's a great Russian this I think is a multiple fairy throwing a first off we don't know Mifsud or is water telling the truth and I've seen some documentation which I put in my store you can go to and download the actual documents that would suggest that there's some credence to what they're saying there's some clear evidence that misty was being directed to you introduced Papadopoulos too the Russians and secondly there was some trickery chicanery going on remember everyone in the media was gasping couple years ago the Papadopoulos might have met with Russia with what Amir Putin's needs a woman who is is supposed to be Vladimir people's needs I have seen clear and convincing evidence that the woman who was introduced by Mifsud too Papadopoulos with not a niece but in fact a student posing as a niece that that Mr took off of his campus that's the sort of trickery or OR undercover work and often goes on and either private intelligence ops or government ops I think one of the theories here it could be a government run MI six America who knows another theory was a private intelligence up someone had paid to have this dirty tricks states we don't know yet but the fact that John during his looking at it tells us the answers mother gave the justice department don't seem to be satisfying enough to be Attorney General let me ask you this I was recently got a call from somebody and I've always felt the George Papadopoulos you know he even said and it was reported that he said just the opposite of what people accused him of saying when they use them of lying he said I would I would find a traitorous if somebody alluded with the Russian column that was your column John Simon correct ball and a friend and so many reasons no don't trust this guy don't trust this guy and I looked at them and I said well it arm I have no reason to doubt what he said here and I've been told that there might actually be exculpatory evidence that proves him right that's exactly right remember we've heard multiple times on your show about lawmakers are come on your show referencing transcripts John and I as I many times before you have called for the release of those transcripts they exist I think those are in the process of being declassified I think we're gonna see some news on that the next few weeks but if there are transcripts before the FISA warrant was issued in which the FBI knew that George Papadopoulos not only was was not interested in in getting a Russian dirt and email for the Russians he actually said of doing it the campaign will consider to trees and they would never do that if you use those words it would have undercut the entire allegation they're asking the court for permission to to investigate it's the sort of information you're required under the law to tell the court we think something went on here but we have some evidence it goes the other way we need to show that to you we've heard from deafening as we've heard from John Radcliffe said there's a belief that some of this evidence was not given to the court if that gets the classified in we see really what the FBI knew about Papadopoulos it could really go to the heart of abuse by the FBI and the justice department in the fall of twenty

"george papadopoulos" Discussed on News 96.5 WDBO
"George Papadopoulos, who's our guest in LA, author of deep state argue, George before we moved back to your book. What do you see head with a Trump, Joe Biden battle for the presidency next year? Oh well, I think don't from has a great nickname for him. Sleepy joe. I like the home Shanghai, Joe and Shanghai Joe, I call them because of all of his extensive Tyson, the Chinese and look, China. And have you just watched Joe Biden for five minutes on the campaign trail? You're going to see two three things one out of touch guy to a person who just doesn't understand what threats China is to the middle class in this country and three just a person who has a lot of baggage and that includes, you know, just the way he deals with women. And how women have come out and then aggressive manner against him and his harassment and I just think that he represents a an old America, that doesn't exist anymore that America was the American abroad. Co Bama, when I remember, you couldn't even get a job at Starbucks. If you wanted to students couldn't find jobs with three degrees China, was ripping America, with horrible trade deals immigration was unvetted, and it was just not an really pleasant time to be in this country, at least for Mike respective, and that's why I knew the Donald Trump would win. So I think what Joe Biden is going to do is going to try and relaunch President Obama, two point. Oh, except he's just doesn't have the charisma that Obama dead. He doesn't have the energy and we're, we're past that. I think Donald Trump has issued structural changes to both the. Economy in this country, global trade agreement security partnerships that are going to be really hard to take back. And I think they're really paying dividends for America today. I think Americans feel more prosperous than ever more secure the number. And I don't think they wanna lose that and hurt their livelihood or their wallets. So I don't think Joe Biden has a chance against Trump and quite frankly. I don't see any other democratic candidate standing up to President Trump and, and beating twenty twenty. Let me get back to your book, George before the break the next topic is called love among the ruins in this book, deep state target, what is level ruins me. Oh. Probably some of your listeners including you maybe probably saw my wife, Simone defending me on TV when I couldn't talk even after I talk, you know, she's a beautiful person, and she's a wonderful person inside and out, and I give the story of how I met the love of my life, and how we ended up getting married in the middle of this chaotic situation, and how her defending me the way she did on shows like Hannity or George Stephanopoulos or Tucker Carlson, really gave me credibility that I probably wouldn't have had had I come out on my own and wrote a book like this after I was sentenced is no one would believe me. And so, I think, you know, the readers are probably going to enjoy the these chapters allotted brings the readers who I'm sure had there. Oh, love stories that they could relate to and some hardships, that they went through including money issues. Family issues, legal issues. We had it all. But we got married in the middle of it, and we're stronger than ever four it and we're very happy. What about the chapter simply called the arrest while the arrest basically that's still chapter where explained in the previous or what it was like to have the Teradata and the fright of the arrest? But then that chapter goes into the meetings with a special counsel. And all of that was all about. And how the special counsel basically a ready knew that I was in a sense from the beginning. And I'm pretty sure they have the same information on other people like Michael Flynn, and yet they still try to get me to incriminate president from any way they can, and when I would have liked to them to make. A case for them. They said basically, you're not going to lie. You're not going to, you know, help make our tastes were, we don't need you just we're going to send them to jail. And I said, well, I'm not going to lie. So I stood my ground I could have lied. My could've done probably what people like Michael Cohen, did, or what other people have done, then tried to embarrass themselves in the president publicly, I stood my ground. I kept very quiet modest throughout this ordeal. And I think that's. After massive protests in local government officials announcing today, they're hitting the pause button on a Bill that would allow suspects to be handed over to mainland Chinese authorities for trial kief executive Carrie Lam says that the local government wants to hear opposing opinions on the Bill and restore peace after days of protests.

"george papadopoulos" Discussed on News 96.5 WDBO
"We're on the air today because of Aaron Berlin. Skills behind the glass. Andrew, her Liska is our producer, and my guest in the first segment is George Papadopoulos. He's in LA. Former advisor to President Trump and secretary of housing and urban development. Dr Ben Carson, his book is out, deep state, target George welcome to central Florida. How are you doing? Oh, thank you very much for doing great high from sunny. LA. Deep state target a title how he got caught in the crosshairs of the plot to bring down President Trump. What does that subtitle mean George? Well, basically, what that subtitle is all about is what we've been living as a country for the last two years. And now was William bar Durham, Horowitz, and Huber who I like to call the four horsemen at the DOJ now are an inspector general are investigating. And that is government, malfeasance surveillance abuse and other corruption that was taking place at the highest levels of the Obama administration and intelligence agencies in two thousand sixteen seventeen your book begins with this chapter a beginning, what are you writing there? In the beginning. It's exactly that it's two things. I bring the readers into the room with the set with the savage like arrests that happened as airport where I had no idea why I was being arrested. I was probably narcoterrorists was treated better than I was. In fact, I think a lot of the Trump associates, or caught up in this, including myself, Roger stone manafort's, we're probably treated worse than even some of the most hardened criminals in the world because I don't think some of the most hardened criminals in the world, have twenty swat team officers, and pull body armor, coming to their home at five in the morning like this hopes for Roger stone, or you don't have seven agents, basically, a bum rushing you at an airport and not tell you either arresting did me in the summer of two thousand seventeen among other things. So the beginning highlights and bring you the reader into the room. Room of what that terrifying. Experience was like, and then it goes into. Of course, my background my childhood, how I got involved in politics y what my motivations were to give back to this country and starts to explain how I ended up joining both the Trump in Ben Carson campaigns. And that moves to Mr. pumping, dopoulos goes to Washington Philipson. Yes. So after I, I explained my background of it. George popadopoulos goes to Washington explains my career in, in the tank industry and the energy business, which I was in for six years, leading up to my work with Mr. Trump. And Dr Carson where I worked with people like Doug fights, south crop. See and scooter Libby in DC. These were people who basically ran the White House and the Pentagon under the Reagan Bush administration's, I give the reader's some interesting. Highlights and how it was to work for those establishment figures segue from working from people like that, who are very renegade type of campaign in Ben Carson, and Donald Trump, what are you write about under the topic campaign fever, so in campaign? That's exactly what it was. We were going into the summer and the fall of two thousand fifteen obviously, there was a presidential campaign season underway Curtly similarly how there's one now slowly emerging on the democratic side. And obviously next year it's going to be into high gear. And that's what happened. It was the summer of two thousand fifteen. I saw an opportunity to leverage. What basically were my ties in DC by ties in the energy industry into working on a winning campaign. Donald Trump came down, those escalators in June of two thousand fifteen. I knew he was going to be the president under the heading power games. Can you explain that? Yeah. So in, in power games, it was all about trying to join these campaigns. So initially when I reached out to Corey Lewandowski, in June of two thousand fifteen I thought I had a very strong background. And he reached out to me, and the campaign was on two or three people. And no one was hiring at that point. He reached out. He said I like your background. Let's keep in touch as the campaign expand. This was the summer of two thousand fifteen I said, of course. So then I the power of going to London where I was working as an energy consultant trying to join the Trump campaign, but then joining the Ben Carson campaign and using that experience the finally joining the Trump campaign, which was, which was an incredible experience, working for the for darker person, George popadopoulos, our guest is book deep state target. The next topic, I went you've explained Georgia's simply called target practice. Oh, well target practice is where I started to understand by the fall of two thousand fifteen. So now we've left the summer of two thousand fifteen I leave Washington, I'm in Europe in the fall of two thousand fifteen and I'm joining Carson's campaign on Carson's campaign. And that's what I started to understand that there was a target already on not just me personally. That's why my, my title of my book, deep state target, but also likely on other presidential campaigns of two thousand sixteen season including Ben Carson Donald Trump, and Blake leave and others. And people forget that Ben Carson was the only candidate that was actually leading in the poll against Donald Trump from the Republican side. So I give some details of some of these operatives who were starting to reach all ready and inquire about the inner work. Of the Carson campaign, which made me very suspicious, including from the US government. What is the devil from down under me the double from down under is this infamous Australian diplomats named Alexander Downer? And the reason he comes after that chapter of target practice or I started to understand that there was something suspicious going on and something wrong was happening when I kept having all these overtures by people from the State Department, the CIA basically, in London inquiring about Carson's campaign as soon as I joined Trump's campaign in March of two thousand sixteen sensually have the kitchen sink thrown at me and part of the kitchen being thrown at me was this double from down under Alexander Downer who at the time, of course, I didn't know that he was a good friend of Hillary, and Bill Clinton. He donated twenty five million dollars of Australian of Australian taxpayer money to the Clinton. Foundation, and that he was well, embedded and worked with various intelligence agencies, including the CIA six, so he wanted to meet with me. After I had incredibly strange encounters from a lot of these people. I just explained and I felt that he was recording my conversation and he was asking me, very strange questions about Trump Russia about my personal background. And this person. I don't know how he ended up becoming some sort of trigger or some setup meeting. But so what I do in the book is, I give an inside look into what that infamous meeting at the Kensington wide rooms was that allegedly helped spark the investigation, at least that's what was the narrative two years ago. I think that nerve is changing a bit. So the reader is going to get an inside look, unlike they've ever seen before of what was probably one of the most disturbing meetings of the entire campaign season. George popadopoulos is our guest. He's the author of deep state target quite a read, folks, how I got caught in the crosshairs of the plot to bring down President Trump George, we've arrived at this topic, I want you to get into Greece. Cleveland and million explain. Yes. So I made Downer in may of two thousand sixteen just like any, I was a foreign policy adviser and the campaign. So part of my responsibilities I hit three responsibilities. One was hoping rights, Donald Trump's foreign policy speeches, which I did I co-authored his first speech, he gave at the Mayflower Hotel that famous speech he gave I wrote it with Stephen Miller. The second thing was meeting government representatives on behalf of the, the campaign, and the third was introducing Donald Trump to foreign leaders which I ended up doing with the president of Egypt. This aspect of Greece was during a I give the reader in understanding of the behind the scenes work that people in campaigns have to do to actually get meetings. Like the one I just explained setup. So when I set up the meeting between Trump and Egypt. The president's and September it all started in Greece. Actually, in may of two thousand sixteen through the Greek defense minister, the US embassy, they're connecting me to the gyp shin. So what I do is basically give up behind the scenes. Look at how I was networking with the US government porn governments to basically not only get information assist the campaign. You know, in terms of what the world was, what was happening in the world in two thousand sixteen but also to basically shows foreign governments that Trump was serious and, you know, he should be met with eventually, what is the hall per setup about? That's a very interesting chapter and it's probably many of the listeners saw heard of the front page New York Times story three weeks ago or two weeks ago or they stated that, that the sun, some sort of blonde us agents or something to come meet with me in London. So helper was actually the one leading that operation, and why this is very disturbing is because this person stuff on helper. Who's now I think under investigation by the new attorney general for spying on the campaign, including myself and others. In the actually enjoying the actually even spied on the transition team. He paid me money to fly me out to London where I met with this very beautiful blonde person grow over. She was who was also part of the operation, and then we later find out according to a front page story of the New York Times three weeks ago. That it was part of a CIA operation against me. So I give the readers but inside look into a CIA operation targeted against me in that chapter. It's a fascinating. One is one of my favorite actually. And then you then you move to the topic victory spoils tell us about that. So victory spoils is basically after the Donald Trump is elected president in November of two thousand sixteen I'm basically some, the people that I had been in touch with or had been reaching out to me and up getting on front page stories as part of either the steel dose, CA or involved in, you know, some sort of bad information related to the doctor for Mr. Trump so victory spoils highlights some of the strange characters that I explained Obita earlier in the conversation who are reaching out to me from November of two thousand fifteen all the way through the, the election and how they ended up biting me in the back of gun when the FBI came to my house, and I later found out that all of the people that FBI talk to me about were actually indeed working either directly or indirectly with FBI themselves trying to. Set me up and Mr. Trump. And then you move move into the topic men in black attack. What's up? Well, you could imagine what that means is that I give the reader, an inside look into what the very intense FBI interogations are all about how they looked like what kind of questions they were asking me. I explained that basically the FBI had no interest in my connections to Russia. Because I have no connections to Russia. In fact, they were probing me and basically, very hostile to me for me, working in the energy business in Israel, which is what I was doing as part of my career. I never quite understood why the Obama administration was spying on me for my Thais Israel. And that's something that not only I covered my book. But the Muller report covers it also the very short paragraph that many people overlook, but I cover it extensively in my book, and I basically goes and explains what the interrogation are all about how I was being followed at the airport by these. Agents even in Europe how I was followed. Why I believe they arrested me the way they did at the airport, including because they caught me in some sort of sting operation. And it's, it's just really a step-by-step, how terrifying it is to, you know, really be part of a witch hunt, and how the government treats you when they want to get the president. George Papadopoulos is our guest. We've another segment with George. His book is called deep state target just a reminder,.
"george papadopoulos" Discussed on WSB-AM
"To be true that President Trump's foreign policy adviser, unpaid George Papadopoulos wasn't indeed spied on. We got the details. And we also have the excuses that are built into the story. Shannon bream makes no excuses. A quick turnaround after last night's eleven o'clock show where she featured Catherine Herridge is exclusive interview with the president. She has a book called finding the bright side out next week the art of chasing, what matters, Shannon. Welcome back. Good morning to you, Bryan, Chatham thinks certainly urge you had this story last night because it broke, but I'm reading the George Papadopoulos story, and I'm thinking to myself. Okay. He. Wrote that in his book, we've been talking about this for at least eighteen months and the New York Times is pretending as if they had this story. What do you think is significant about them running it on the first page? Well, I've seen a lot of it has to do with the fact that the Horowitz report, the inspector general at the Justice department is view within the next few weeks. We think according to what we heard from the attorney general, and it's very much like some people the agency wanting to get ahead of whatever's in that report. Wow. That's a little cynical would basically shares his Georgia, George Papadopoulos in September was asked lured into London to meet with Stephan helper who has been working with the FBI, and he was basically setting up Georgia Papadopoulos to see how much he knew about the Trump administration. This Trump campaign's links to Russia. They also had a Turkish assistant there. He was able to see through that and see that she was she had a different agenda. Nothing came of it quarter page experience the same thing with Steph Anapa. Specifically and Michael Flynn as well. So now, we know there was spying in the campaign. Michael Schmidt is one of the three authors on this story. He was on MSNBC this morning. Listen to it. He said cut three if you're a Trump supporter, if you're Trump himself you look at this new say.
Barr grilled about Mueller letter in heated Senate testimony
"And extrordinary revelation by the New York Times that in late March the special prosecutor, Mr. Muller wrote a letter to the attorney general complaining thought they're complaining. The matter here is Russia gate, the context and here is the molar report. The weekend of the complaint was the one where the attorney general received the Muller report, and then issued an executive summary, pending the reduction of the Miller report, which came some weeks, later, gentlemen, a very good evening to you. Go to the letter that we now have written by we're told the special prosecutor. Mr. Muller, he signed it. But the sentence that seems to have the most complaint in it, quote, the summary letter the department sent to congress and released to the public late in the afternoon of March twenty fourth did not fully capture the context nature and substance of this offices work and conclusions and quote and a. I'm puzzled about this complaint to the attorney general. The word context throws made the word nature is a total. Puzzling and substance of this offices work is this something that's regular exchange between serving a prosecutors and the in the office and the boss himself. Does this happen all the time? Good evening to you. Andy. Good evening, John. No, it's extrordinary. I guess part of it is explained by, you know, people do all kinds of things when they're on their way out the door as some of the staff of this mullah's, and this more self they're apt to do all kinds of stuff when they're going out the door and no longer even cells in the chain of command. But they wouldn't dare have done before that maybe a little of that going on my sense, John is that the sequence of events that's important as attorney general bar pointed out in his testimony was that before bar put out his March twenty four th letter outlining conclusions of Muller's investigation, which he received on two days early on much second before the March twenty four bar letter goes out he gives molar these special counsel an opportunity that we've you the letter before issuing it and Muller declines that opportunity. Bars letter conveys, and this is not something I think that's contestable. That Muller did not make decision on the obstruction charge. Which was quite surprising since that was the main thing that he was brought in I believe to the side. And I think what happened was when bar revealed that Muller had abdicated on the main job that Muller was given to do. There was a lot of press criticism that arose from that. And after hearing all that stuff couple of days, they got miffed, and they sent this letter in and then when bar confronted baller about the letter the day after receiving it PS and quite blank point blank, rather. Are you saying that the letter is inaccurate and Muller, according to bar said, no the letter the complaint was not that. The letter was inaccurate. Was that the press? Coverage was an accurate. So here I think we get to the two things that are of concern to the tender sensibilities of people on Muller staff. One is that they got negative press coverage and because they were the avengers against Trump. They didn't get any negative press coverage. So this was something that was new to them, and I think probably difficult to deal with. And then the second thing is that. Bar is a prosecutor in the old school mold of the Justice department, which is at the prosecutor's job, which is the one that that Muller didn't do on obstruction is to make determination about whether there's enough evidence to charge. Well, whether there's not that's what we need to hear from. Prosecutors not the mood music around the determination, we need that determination that is. Well, part of the problem that it seems from this letter that they've inverted the master server relationship is not the special counsel work for the attorney general. Yes. The the normal chain of command is that the the special counsel reports to the attorney general, but I think that is what happened here was first of all we shouldn't have had a special counsel because there was no crime, and there was no conflict, which the two things you need under the rigs to justify special counsel. They were given that as the Democrats who complained about the firing of me were given a special counsel. Anyway, by Mr. Rosenstein, the the then deputy attorney general, and he made a commitment to the Democrats because they were saying mean things about him in the media. And he wanted them to stop that. He would give Muller basically carte lunch. Muller would have no restrictions. He'd be able to take the investigation wherever he decided to take it. So that would no crime no crime, no parameters. No restrictions on Muller. And then what happened that of importance in the last two months? Is that you know, we got an actual attorney general now who thinks that his job is to be the attorney general, which means he gets to supervise the prosecutors and Muller and his staff got used to operating for two years without any real to provisions, and as a result of that they did things like for example, the microcosm. I think that captures best with the report is like is the George Papadopoulos or the Roger stone indictment. You can pick either one. But both of them are the same thing, you have basically a relatively tiny in the scheme of things process crime that a normal prosecutor would charge a one half power graph indictment saying on you know, on such and such day, the defendant knowingly willfully lied to the FBI, you know, by saying X, and that would be the end of it. Instead with Muller what we got was fourteen. Pages of almost collusion. Nearly collusion. Lots of Russians around here who knows when collusion will happen. And then you put to the last page, and it's got nothing to do with collusion process crime. So that was the way he ran the investigation. And then when we got to the end, he hopes that that would be the way his report would go out. And instead what bar told him essentially was, you know, this is like a prosecutor's office would not writing screenplay and the public with the bottom line in the investigation, which is what you're supposed to get. The attorney general has now spoken to the Senate Judiciary committee and two members of the committee following the end of the testimony Senator Harris of California's Senator Geraldo of Wii have called for the attorney general's resignation. So this matter is now partisan contest is no longer. Just a search for the facts. However, I mentioned that. In addition, the House Judiciary committee. Cities expecting to turn general to testify and the latest news. The attorney general will not because of unusual demands by the house committee for the terms of that testimony. So we're thrown back on this dispute, and I want to identify the dispute in common in terms of what of us was not a lawyer, which is make you to our lawyers. It very much looks like and the word rift was used in an interview on the New Yorker with a Mr. mazzetti and Mr Schmidt, the two times reporters working this story and first revealed the bar. They Muller letter the word rift was used it very much looks to me as those who seek the president's unhappiness impeachment removal from office are siding with Mr. Muller those who seek to support right now. The Trump administration are siding with Mr. bar that looks? To me. I'm non lawyer to be an. An unequal match Mr. bars, the attorney general, and Mr. and Mr. Mueller is a serves the attorney general, do you believe that there is a head of us that scale of contest he said he said they're going to pick these two men against each other in a pending impeachment inquiry. Well, I think John that the way that that that is being teed up as if it was a contradiction makes an assumption. That's not true. And that is that what congress would have to find for impeachment is the same thing that a prosecutor would have had to sign for indictment and important. A fact they're very different. So what I think happened here is not necessarily that that bar and Muller are in conflict, at least in terms of what the facts love, I think they have some legal disagreements, but I think the thing to keep your eye on here is that bar as the attorney general is conducting himself as a prosecutor. And what prosecutors concern is is is there enough evidence beyond a reasonable doubt. To prove a penal offence in court. That was supposed to be Muller's job too. But I believe, and this is the whole thing about, you know, context and substance, and what I call mood music, and and narrative what Muller decided to do and to make his investigation was not the finding of charges or the decision. Whether charges were justified or not what he decided to do with to craft the narrative, and what you know, the the if there's a conflict here, it's that mo- that bar believes consistent with the with the old line Justice department way of thinking about the job of the prosecutor your job is to find out. There's enough evidence to charge or there, isn't what Muller seems to think is that a prosecutor's job is to write a screenplay of a narrative, which is peppered occasionally by things like processed primes. But otherwise what what your job is is to is to crap a story. That paints the president in as unflattering alive as possible mindful of the fact that congress doesn't need a penal offence in order to impeach. So I think they're serving different purposes more than being in in sexual
