His Name Is George Papadopoulos … No, The Other One

His Name Is George Papadopoulos … No, The Other One

Papadopoulos' attorney did not respond.

Emails obtained by the AP show that George Papadopoulos' conversations, cited in court papers, were with Joseph Mifsud and Ivan Timofeev.

Papadopoulos graduated from college in 2009, before moving to London to get a master's degree in security studies.

The adviser also was present at a meeting of Trump's foreign policy team; a picture shows him three seats from Trump.

He is now an oil, gas and policy consultant, according to his LinkedIn page.

US investigators said that the following day, Papadopoulos then emailed a Trump campaign policy adviser, "Have some interesting messages coming in from Moscow about a trip when the time is right".

The lawyer's statement said Clovis opposed any trip to Russian Federation for Trump or his campaign staff but noted that Clovis may not have made his opposition known when "a volunteer made suggestions on a foreign policy matter". After entering his guilty plea he was ordered not to contact other Trump officials and prohibited from foreign travel.

The incident echoes elements of a June 2016 meeting involving Donald Trump Jr. and other campaign officials at Trump Tower.

"He didn't say yes and he didn't say no", the official said, declining to be more specific about Trump's response to Papadopoulos.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes pressed Page twice throughout the 15 minute interview about whether he was on email chains with former Trump adviser George Papadopoulos that discussed Russian Federation.




George Papadopoulos was approached by people claiming ties to Russian Federation and offering "dirt" on Hillary Clinton in the form of thousands of emails, according to court documents unsealed.

At that point, however, he was already working for the Trump campaign - the professor only took interest in Papadopoulos because of his status on the campaign, according to the statement.

On March 31, 2016, Trump tweeted a photo of his meeting with the advisory board, with Papadopoulos among a handful of advisers at the president's table.

Former Trump 2016 campaign chairman Paul Manafort (L) leaves U.S. Federal Court after being arraigned on twelve federal charges in the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election in Washington, U.S. October 30, 2017.

Records made public Monday in Papadopoulos' case list a gaggle of people who were in touch with him during the campaign but only with such identifiers as "Campaign Supervisor", "Senior Policy Advisor" and "High-Ranking Campaign Official".

The Trump campaign's national co-chairman had an interesting excuse when it was revealed he had urged another campaign staffer to meet with Russian officials.

In an interview on MSNBC, Page, who's scheduled to testify behind closed doors before a House intelligence committee panel Thursday, said he "might have been" on email threads with Papadopoulos where Russian Federation "may have come up from time to time", but clarified that "nothing major" was discussed.

Papadopoulos was arrested in July and has been interviewed repeatedly by authorities, the filing said.

"We need someone to communicate that DT is not doing these trips. It should be someone low level in the campaign so as not to send any signal".
