In New Book, Papadopoulos Claims He Was 'Duped' By FBI Into Guilty Plea

In a new book obtained by the Wall Street Journal, former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos is attempting to rewrite history.

In the book, “Deep State Target,” Papadopoulos reportedly outlines his interactions with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of investigators and suggests he was “duped” by agents into admitting guilt for lying to the FBI, a charge that he served 14 days in prison for.

“I realize I misspoke to the FBI,” he reportedly wrote. “The ‘lie’ I was charged with … certainly wasn’t intentional. … I had to use those words and own them because those were the charges the prosecutors insisted on hitting me with. I am truly sorry I didn’t get the dates right when I talked to the FBI agents. Still, I was never told what my false claims were.”

Papadopoulos — whose drunken conversation with an Australian diplomat during the 2016 campaign helped spark the Russia probe — was charged and pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with a professor named Joseph Mifsud, who allegedly told him that the Russians had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton.

1. It would be nice to codify all the pieces of information out there that led people to believe

 

that suspicions of "collusion" were NOT UNFOUNDED. This is one of the pieces.

2. You would think that the questions were pretty straight forward in his interrogation

and we can even bring in the people that he bragged to...............from the Australian government, this continued attack to smear is just amazing..................

3. They all say that don't they? Every convicted person it seems like says 'oh, I've been ...

misled by my attorneys', 'I was told wrong', etc. etc. etc. and blames everybody else but themselves it seems like.

I believe Cohen (because he confesses and has nothing else to lose) far more that I believe this idiot (Papadopoulos) who drunkenly bragged to others about his acts to a diplomat, no less.
