WASHINGTON, DC – George Papadopoulos, who had served as a foreign policy advisor for Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign, had also told Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias (at the end of May 2016) that a mysterious Russian professor had revealed that the Russians had Hillary Clinton’s emails in their possession.

This claim was made by Papadopoulos during an interview on September 9 with Greek-American journalist, George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week, as well as on a CNN broadcast on September 7. As it turns out, this disclosure had been made by his lawyers and in the memorandum they filed a week before in court.

Papadopoulos, however, claims he does not remember informing anyone in Donald Trump’s campaign about the information provided by Professor Joseph Mifsud.

On This Week, Papadopoulos did not mention Kotzias by name, but referred to him as the “Greek Foreign Minister,” admitting he told him about Hillary Clinton’s emails allegedly held by the Russians and though he met with Australian diplomat Alexander Downer in London he could not recollect sharing the information about the emails with Downer. The Australian diplomat’s name is not included in the memorandum filed by Papadopoulos’ lawyers.

It is unknown whether Greek Foreign Minister Kotzias shared the information elsewhere. The fact that Papadopoulos remembers telling Kotzias about the information from Mifsud and meeting with Downer but not sharing the information with any official of the Trump campaign raises many questions.

It is noted that on September 7, Papadopoulos was sentenced to 14 days in prison for lying to the FBI. Papadopoulos was the first to be arrested by the special counsel, Robert Mueller, and plead guilty for his involvement in the probe of Russian officials tampering in the United States presidential election.

Mueller’s team of prosecutors was demanding six months imprisonment for Papadopoulos, while his defense attorneys asked for probation only. Andrew Goldstein of the special counsel’s office said Papadopoulos “chose to lie again and again to advance his personal interests,” and his lies were “purposeful, calculated and caused harm to the investigation,” ABC News reported, adding that as a result of the “deliberate lies,” FBI agents had to “painstakingly piece together facts” by going through “100,000 emails and eight gigabytes of data.”

U.S. District Court Judge Randolph D. Moss said during the sentencing that Papadopoulos lied to “place his own personal ambitions above the interests of the United States,” ABC News reported.

It should be noted that in the interview with Stephanopoulos, Papadopoulos appeared with his wife, Simona Mangiante, who admitted that special counsel Mueller’s investigating team suspected that she might be a Russian spy.

In the interview, Stephanopoulos asked, “You were questioned, as well, by Robert Mueller’s team and from the start, they suspected you were a Russian agent. How did that manifest itself?”

Mangiante replied, “I come from a political background myself. I used to work as a diplomat at the European Parliament for a few years and this could be a red flag because many officials at European Union actually — it’s a cover-up for spy jobs,” ABC News reported

She added, “Of course this connection was highly suspicious. I respect the, I always said I respect Mueller’s interest in my profile because clearly it’s quite alarming, the fact that I marry George Papadopoulos in the middle of this storm.”

After serving his 14-day sentence, Papadopoulos plans on writing a book while his wife noted that she is ready to start a family after the couple relocates to California.


  1. Papadopoulos is currently a mysterious figure. Nevertheless, regardless of what we might think of him, the goal of normalization of US-Russian relations remains a worthy one.

    1. To John Sakelaris…. normalization of U.S -Relations …is not only a worthy goal …..but promised by the elected President of the United States …..Donald Trump…. during his campaign for President! Hence, the efforts of the Republican and Democratic globalist from the swamp….and their cult appointees in the C.i.A , Justice Department , FBI, State department and Pentagon! to use the Russian narrative to discredit Russia …and sabotage those worthy goals! The ideological degenerates… are no different ..infiltrating our government…or what I will call …Regime, and far worse than anything the Nazi’s were guilty of it in …waging war for economic , political and military control of the countries of Europe …including guess who…Russia!

      Far worse…in their caliphate includes the entire world …and have the capability of destroying humanity with …. weapons of mass destruction …and demonstrated on Nagasaki and Hiroshima! This the same Evangelical cult …who had no problem…in dropping these weapons on civilians of the world…and by today’s standards …. the leaders of America…will be facing a war crimes tribunal!

      But let me …. show you what the real reason for the hostility with Russia… and accidentally revealed by our National Security members of the Regime in Washington….as testified as follows by Wess Mitchell……..and as transcribed by independent press!

      In testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on 21 August, Wess Mitchell, the successor to Victoria Nuland, gave an extraordinarily honest statement of real US geopolitical strategy towards Russia. It revealed a bit more honesty apparently than the US State Department wanted, because they quickly sanitized their published version on the department website.


      In his opening remarks to the Senate committee members Mitchell stated:

      “The starting point of the National Security Strategy is the recognition that America has entered a period of big-power competition, and that past US policies have neither sufficiently grasped the scope of this emerging trend nor adequately equipped our nation to succeed in it.

      Then he continues with the following extraordinary admission:

      “Contrary to the hopeful assumptions of previous administrations, Russia and China are serious competitors that are building up the material and ideological wherewithal to contest US primacy and leadership in the 21st Century. It continues to be among the foremost national security interests of the United States to prevent the domination of the Eurasian landmass by hostile powers. The central aim of the administration’s foreign policy is to prepare our nation to confront this challenge by systematically strengthening the military, economic and political fundamental of American power.

      If we pause to reflect on the meaning behind the words of Wess Mitchell, it’s pretty crude and wholly illegal in terms of the UN Charter, though Washington today seems to have forgotten that solemn document. Mitchell says US national security priority is to, “…prevent the domination of the Eurasian landmass by hostile powers.” He clearly means powers hostile to efforts of Washington and NATO to dominate Eurasia, ever since the collapse of the Soviet Union more than a quarter century ago.

      But, wait. Mitchell earlier cites the two dominant powers who combined, he says, are the current prime foe of US global control. Mitchell states explicitly, “Russia and China are serious competitors that are building up the material and ideological wherewithal to contest US primacy and leadership.” But US control of Eurasia then means US control of Russia, China and environs. Eurasia is their land space.

      John and Pavlo…right from the horses mouth…why Greece and Cyprus …have no sovereignty…and no future ….since, the will be kept impotent and weak ….to simply comply with the U.S and Nato plans to discredit Russia, add more vassal states to their control , and impose hostile policies ….which can only , be the acts of degenerate evangelical white supremacist members of this regimes… who could care less about the consequences of the ethnic and Orthodox religious populations of Eastern Europe and in Greece…by inciting wars to simply take control of Russia …because the represent one of the only countries …who can pursuit their economic and political interests ….as any sovereign nation is entitled to!

      That is why Greece…. has no sovereignty and the enemies of the United States….are mandated to be those of the people of Greece by the United States and Nato! That is why….. you have the culture of Greece sold off to Fyrom…to add another base to this war march! And that is why the Governor of Nato …Tsipras…. despicably, impose the false script of Russian meddling in Greece…and to sickly, suggest that the Orthodox Church and Monks fo Mt.Athos …were collaborators! KIll two enemies of the war plans of the U.S. and Nato!

  2. He like all of the parasites that came out the woodwork to be a detriment to Trump, is mysterious ,all these opportunist, and their alterior motives, of money and power…..Can someone work for the President in an honest and loyal way, instead of working for themselves, and who knows what country..

    1. John…..this whole narrative and investigation ….is about the normalization of U.S and Russian Relations……….but unfortunately . the degenerates…and I mean degenerate Fascist Sadist….. and I mean fascist sadist…who are prepared to take the entire world to war ….in order to enact another foreign policy of Regime change …on any independent country of the world, who is not compliant to the economic, political and military policies of these ….white supremacist globalist….who are a cross between fascist and communist who are called the different name….Neo Cons of the Republican Party with bi-partison Neo Liberal support from the democratic party….run by Hillary Clinton!

      It is a stain on humanity ….that American people have allowed for 25 years the systematic corruption of our democracy….and ignoring the fact ….that we are at war with the entire world …not just Russia… to consolidate , our grip on the sovereignty of the world….an no better example of the complete compromise of Greek sovereignty with the help of Tsipras!

      America is a Myth….and has been for over 200 years….. it is a hollywood production …which only practices a democracy….which makes you free to make as much money as you can …thru lying, cheating, and any other means ….. that feeds this government …….and provides the executioners of their foreign policies …. the military with about 800 billion dollars, more than the combined budgets of the remaining top 15 countries of the world …including Russia. with an enormous budget of …..66 billion dollars! What a danger Russia is …Right ! Like China, Iran, libya, Iraq etc ….they have one thing in common….they are and were growing economic threats ….to the monopoly and dominance…o of country…who parades around the world …running a protection racket ….no different than the best organized crime families of the black hand!

      George Papadopoulos….. as Pavlo …. is what in political circles…is one of those political parasites or leaches….who is in government for money and power….the only question for George…who did you actually represent ….the new power base of Donald Trump….or the real degenerate power brokers …of the Swamp…like Hillary Clinton , John McCain, and the usual suspects in the Democratic and Republican parties!

      Rostein, Mueller and their sick collaborators on the FbI, Justice Department, State department and C.i.A are mobilized ISIS jihadist representing the secret society of billionaires and Royalty ….that dictate how fascsit work…. in this case …Robert Mueller …is now in charge of the SS interrogation wing to extort …. any information useful to doing …what they have demonstrated in all the government change of the world …fabricate lies and misrepresentations to remove another government ….who is unreliable and not a member of their little club…despite the fact …it remains to be seen…if he also …is an acceptable Fascist member!
