Bush Chief WH Lawyer Says Papadopolous Cooperating On Collusion With Feds Is Bad News for Trump

Even as Republicans tour cable news to declare that the indictments against two people who worked for his campaign and reports that one adviser pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about Russia isn’t about collusion, Chief White House ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush from ’05 to ’07 Richard Painter said this is about collusion and it’s bad news.

“Papadopolous is the big one – lesser charges but it is about collusion. And he is cooperating. Bad news for Trump,” Painter wrote on Twitter.

Republicans are trying to point fingers at Hillary Clinton without evidence, but logic itself says this is ridiculous – what would Clinton have colluded about with the people who were working to undermine her and help Donald Trump get elected.

George Papadopoulos lied to the FBI about talking to the Russians while working for the Trump campaign.

The fact that Papadopoulos is cooperating with the FBI means bad things for the Trump campaign.
