BREAKING: Former Trump Campaign Aide Pleads 'Guilty' During Mueller Probe...
Today we all woke up to an explosion of newsiness. In case you need to be caught up, here's what happened this morning so far: JUST IN: Paul Manafort Turns Himself in to the Feds During Mueller Indictment and The Paul Manafort Indictment Is Unsealed... With No Mention of Trump?
Looks like we've got more news coming your way already. And it's not even lunch time yet. Happy Monday.
George Papadopolous, a former foreign policy advisor to Donald Trump's presidential campaign, has pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI, according to court papers unsealed today.
Papadopoulos was one of several foreign policy advisors to Trump during his campaign.
You can feast your eyes on the unsealed document here.
From the Papadopoulos filing...April 2016 he finds out from Russia gov-connected source that Rs have Clinton "dirt"… https://t.co/R2rO5oRsCx— Olivier Knox (@Olivier Knox) 1509374366.0
Also notable that it’s a guilty plea and not only an indictment https://t.co/0pJCXVNlXs— Maggie Haberman (@Maggie Haberman) 1509374521.0
Okay, so rather damning at a glance. I can already hear the cacophony of leftist screeches growing stronger with each passing moment. Lying to the FBI? Not a wise move. Unless you're Hillary. But upon further inspection, it still appears this has actually little to do with Trump himself:
Final line of Papadopoulos filing - I'm not a lawyer but this cooperation seems notable. https://t.co/7TI5KOGDnd— Olivier Knox (@Olivier Knox) 1509375046.0

Aaaaand then there's this. Because of course.
Sorry, but this is years ago, before Paul Manafort was part of the Trump campaign. But why aren't Crooked Hillary & the Dems the focus?????— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump) 1509373509.0

I hate to be "that guy," but Trump kind of has a point here. After all that investigating, this is all that has been found (or at least unsealed). The media and the left have been harping on about Trump-Russia collusion for what seems like eons. But they've entirely ignored an actual Russian NUCLEAR PLOT which took place under Obama and largely involved Hillary. The bias is almost as blatant as Hillary's hair plugs. Still, we hear nary a peep on the matter.
