George Papadopoulos says that he and Congress both know the name of the person who the Obama administration placed in the Trump campaign to spy on him. This is totally new information and could go a long way in determining just how much Obama was responsible for the spying.
Papadopoulos says that he is not at liberty to release the spy’s name but that he is sure Congress will name the person in its upcoming report if it doesn’t leak before then. Papadopoulos is also casting doubt on his guilty plea and he is thinking about possibly rescinding it after he has learned some of the extraordinary steps Obama and company went to set him up.
Papadopoulos pleaded guilty last year to lying to the FBI about his communications with a Russia-linked professor on dirt on Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton. A judge sentenced him to 14 days behind bars, but since then, he has alleged that the circumstances surrounding his plea weren’t on the up-and-up.
He and his wife Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos have churned out social media posts casting aspersions on Department of Justice officials, the Obamaadministration, Trump dossier author Christopher Steele, Australian diplomat Alexander Downer, and others.
Papadopoulos has taken to claiming that he got set-up. He said Friday that he might withdraw from his plea deal, and he claimed that the government performed committed some misconduct.
“Given certain information that I learned just yesterday, that I can’t publicly disclose right now, I’m actually even considering withdrawing my agreement I have come to with the government.”
“While I cannot disclose the information publicly, it’s a fact that both me and congress know who the SPY within the campaign was. Congress will likely include it in a report later on. Eyes were everywhere during 2016.”
