Trump grants full pardon to Russia probe figure George Papadopoulos

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.

"But if that was likely Russian disinformation from the beginning in the dossier and then we see what they did with it I mean just all right to hookers urinating in a bed in in the Ritz Carlton in Moscow Donald trumps bad which you know that's why they had the spreadsheet John Solomon reported ninety some odd percent of this is all garbage the about new was all garbage but in spite of warnings multiple warnings Kathleen calve like Bruce or everybody else steel hates trump Hillary paid for it it's not verified now we know what's on verifiable the dossiers author Christopher steal those same by it okay but you use it any way you use it it gets disseminated to the American people of the poker is hearing it urinating in the bed story that's it doesn't sound like the Russians if it was if it was Russian disinformation likely from the beginning it sounds like the Russians weren't trying to hold Donald Trump which is banned one of the main points and main conspiracies a mainline is from the get go anyway joining us now good friend of the program is done great work all boy do we have news coming next week isn't it great when you know something awesome is come then you can't share with everybody to tell your audience your he's like you jerk you know only because we we are very careful I am you know I said this last night on TV we we double check triple check every source we don't want to get a story wrong thankfully we have not on this big you know two and a half years above I'm feeling layers of an onion but let me start with this you're the executive vice president investigative columnist at the hill right and you broken so many of these stories but I think what you really hit on just this week prior to Mahler could be the biggest piece of the puzzle and that is about George Mitchell said is a guy that well didn't the mother reports suggest he was part of Russian intelligence and the person he's a he's a flash point the start of the entire Russia collusion narrative if you don't have Joseph miss through writing out reaching out to George Papadopoulos in March of twenty sixteen and offering to introduce him to the Russians you don't have a predicate because as we know it was that conversation sort of conversations in March and April that the F. 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

It gives his account of his work on Trump's twenty sixteen campaign popadopoulos tells CNN he did not know the Turkish woman who allegedly sought to seduce him. I have no idea who this person is. And I think some of the investigations into what happened in twenty sixteen probably going to bear that answer for for everyone on we now know that she was in some sort of research associate as I explained she just didn't fit that profile. She really match the profile of some sort of agents. So I was very suspicious right away about her popadopoulos says he believes the woman was CIA affiliated with Turkish until

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

"And every American should be concerned about this if it were reversed and this was a and this was a democrat, a democratic president who was being treated this way by the by the DOJ, the press would be going crazy. Mike wanna wrap up because we've had enough scotch and time to go on with the rest of the day. But I want to end this round because I, I hope you'll come back five or six months from now, and I wanna try to each densify something that if it comes out that that happens, we will concede that we have to move some ground. So here is mine that I will say if this happens, I will say, okay, I have to buy the scotch next time if it emerges that. In fact, the investigation started with Carter page not with George Papadopoulos and that that. The dossier was in fact the origin story of the whole thing. I don't know that I will say my, you know my God, the whole thing is illegitimate, but I will be deeply shocked and I'll be concerned because I think that's counter to everything every representation that has been made, and I would be very shocked to learn that your world is right about that. And so my question is, what's the reciprocal thing that if you were to learn, you'd have to say, while maybe I've drunk some some of the Kool aid here, and you know that spawn of Satan witness may may have been more onto certain things than I was. You know, we're, we're, we're in such different places because in my view, it has already been firmly established that the dossier is what allowed them a to launch. Investigation into the campaign in general. This wasn't just an investigation of Carter page. An important thing to realize is that they needed Carta. They could've brought Carter page and interviewed him and work with them like they didn't hard page wasn't even still part of the campaign at the time. Yeah, but but all of his all of his contacts, allow them a allow them to investigate others under the under the pretext of investigating Carter page. So all of the, the Carter pay the, the Carter page, Faisal warrant is the door that allows them to go into into into the Trump administration into the Trump campaign in general. So what we also have to loss so that it's also it's also the administrative step, the the, the, the legal step necessary to validate the dossier in the eyes of the press who have seen it. All right. It's all been distributed to them. What would you have to learn? I'd have to learn. I have to learn that. There was actually co luge in between Putin and Trump between Putin and Trump or between Putin and people in Trump's orbit. So what if like tomorrow, it won't happen tomorrow because because it say no, it has to be. It has to be Putin and Trump. It's not Roger stone isn't good enough. No, it has. It will. If you could show, if you could show that Roger stone was was acting on direct orders of Donald Trump and close and close contact. You'll never be able to do that. So the collusion with the kind of circle of people around Trump not good enough for you no way, no way for the all the reasons I look this thing this think about all of the press around. Let me just give you one issue when when it came out the popadopoulos had pleaded guilty to line to the FBI. Look at all the press commentary that that came out about that Papa dopoulos is wearing a wire..

"Well clearly what is of most interest is any collusion that did exist in actuality between the trump campaign and the russian government of that's all to be determined in the days weeks months ahead but this is the beginning of it and mr papadopoulos is someone who clearly has relevant information which should be made available not only to miss the mullahs but also to the united states congress because we're investigating as well so multinationally what the influence is that the russians sought to and perhaps successfully had on our election but again just to make it clear that if there's any attempt to to remove uh robert muller or to give a pardon to any of these witnesses it would cause a constitutional crisis in our country because i think there would be a bipartisan response of that would be volcanic from a capitol hill in objection to what the white house might attempt senator before i let you go i your committee the senate foreign relations committee heard testimony today for defense secretary mattis secretary of state tillerson a new authorization for the use of military force what can it tell us about this this latest effort well again under the united states constitution the congress has the sole and exclusive right to declare war and since two thousand in one and the authorization for the use of military force in afghanistan it has been used like an elastic ban to take united states into country after country after country without up for the vote by the united states congress so that is what we are debating and in fact.

"There will be no point in doing it let me make another point about people who flip about cooperators there are two kinds there are proactiv cooperators at historical collaborators a historical cooperator is somebody who is prepared to testify about things that happened in the past and the record has been set in his or her recollection is what it is and the cooperation is what it is a proactive cooperator which is kind of the holy grail of federal prosecution is somebody who become who flips and becomes a cooperating witness for the government nobody knows and that person can at the direction of law enforcement on an ongoing basis in real time collect evidence whether it's by wearing a wire we're talking on the phone with somebody when that phone calls accorded to get incriminating evidence of other people higher in the food chain in real time and as the paperwork reveals george papadopoulos was picked up in july at the airport in didn't plead guilty until early october so what likely went on during that period of time will likely went on was a lot of negotiation with him and with his lawyer i'm assuming that the a special counsel's office wanted to make sure the papadopoulos was going to admit culpability for the lies he told in for the other actions he took and then also had real information to give to other folks and sometimes it takes a while to evaluate sometimes it takes a while to do all the debriefings you had to do i think at the end of the paperwork it makes clear papadopoulos has met on a number of occasions with law enforcement officials and investigators and so it takes a bit of time to have an information be vetted and make sure that it's an arrangement that everyone can live with.
