He was arrested by the FBI immediately upon arrival.
No warrant, indictment or criminal complaint was used during his arrest.
Papadopoulos made a same-day appearance in court.
No defense attorney was present.
The entire sequence of events appears to have been rather rushed.
Papadopoulos was in jail from 1:45am to 8:27am on July 28, 2017.
Papadopoulos was in front of a judge, agreement in hand that same day.
Papadopoulos had been interviewed by FBI Agent Robert Gibbs exactly six months earlier, on 1-27-17.
During the interview, Papadopoulos made “material false statements and omitted material facts”.
The next day, Papadopoulos deleted his Facebook account.
A few days later, on Feb. 23, 2017, Papadopoulos got rid of his cell phone and changed phone numbers.
Individuals are referred to differently in each document & sequences differ.
But overall presentation of events remains fairly similar through June 1, 2016.
“From mid-June through mid-August 2016..."
Gibbs version lists 4 contacts with Timofeev in July 2016 and one belated contact with Mifsud in October 2016.
"Papadopoulos messaged Foreign Contact 2 on Facebook to ask whether Foreign Contact 2 knew a particular individual with extensive ties to Russian-based businesses and persons."
[Sergei] Millian is the individual Papadopoulos described in a July 22, 2016 Facebook message.
Papadopoulos and Millian met days after the July 22, 2016 Facebook message.
The fact that he was meeting with Papadopoulos in July 2016 is MATERIAL.
So why did the Mueller team ignore this entire sequence of events.
The Gibbs version also fails to note the Millian meeting.
That same day Australia supposedly told the FBI of comments Papadopoulos made during his Alexander Downer meeting.
These comments were supposedly used to open the FBI’s Counterintelligence investigation.
But the legal descriptions of events specifically ignore the meeting.
The May 10, 2016 meeting between Papadopoulos and Alexander Downer.
The same meeting the FBI used as justification in opening their Counterintelligence investigation into an opposing candidates presidential campaign...
It was set up through a chain of two intermediaries linked to Downer.
“He didn’t say dirt, he said material that could be damaging to her. No, he said it would be damaging. He didn’t say what it was,”
Downer also said nothing indicated Trump had any knowledge of what was being discussed.
“We would LATER LEARN in Papadopoulos’ [October 2017] plea that the information the Russians could assist by anonymously releasing were thousands of Hillary Clinton emails.”
However, according to a WSJ article, it was Downer who conveyed his information directly to the U.S. Embassy in London.
This means that neither Australian intelligence nor the Australian government alerted the FBI.
…It has not yet been distributed abroad, including to Trump.”
Downer has long-standing ties to UK intel firm Hakluyt.
Hakluyt’s top officials come from MI6. Board members come from GCHQ.
Former MI6 head Dearlove has ties to Hakluyt.
Stefan Halper is tied through Clarke.
This was the first time Papadopoulos landed on the FBI’s radar.
A conversation that differed little from details in the June 20, 2016 Steele Memo.
Which the FBI already HAD.
Five days after the arrest of Papadopoulos, Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein quietly issued the Aug. 2, 2017, revised “Scope of Investigation & Definition of Authority” memo to special counsel Mueller.
