Former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos was on CNN’s “New Day” show on Wednesday and claimed that he was “horrified” after being told by an alleged Russian agent that the Russian government had obtained emails that would damage Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Then he got yelled at by his host.
Special Counsel Bob Mueller has slowly been disclosing a very broad and extensive pattern of deception by Donald Trump’s aides and associates, according to the Associated Press.

George Papadopoulos said on ABC's This Week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was an excited supporter of a potential Trump/Putin campaign meeting, which means that Jeff Sessions might have been caught telling a big lie to the Senate.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, urged George Papadopoulos to cooperate with both Mueller and the congressional investigations after he gets out of prison in two weeks.
MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace, host of Deadline: White House, has had it with Donald Trump’s propaganda, and has reached a point of utter frustration, as a direct result of it, so much so that she refused to share with her viewers any more of the plethora of Tweets Trump spewed Friday morning regarding the Russian investigation.
Page appeared to have incriminated himself by casually admitting that, yeah, he was on email chains about Russia with George Papadopoulos.
George Papadopoulos has pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents, the federal special counsel said on Monday, becoming the third adviser to President Donald Trump's campaign to face criminal charges in its investigation.
The former Trump foreign policy adviser who flipped and is cooperating with FBI on the Russia investigation was supervised by Attorney General Jeff Sessions during the campaign.
It is all falling apart for Trump as one of his foreign policy advisers has pled guilty to a charge of making false statements to the FBI related to efforts to set up meetings between Russians and Trump.
