The @dbongino/@GeorgePapa19 interview was the biggest sh*tshow I've ever heard on a podcast. Papadopoulos said he has "no reason" not to believe Mifsud's Kremlin-linked lawyer, Stephan Roh, that Mifsud works for the FBI.

@dbongino @GeorgePapa19 2/ Every sixty seconds there was a howler like this during the interview. Essentially you had one person *involved* in the Trump-Russia case who acted like he knew nothing about it, and another guy who says he's researched it for two years and *definitely* knows nothing about it.
@dbongino @GeorgePapa19 3/ Mueller's theory seems to be that the Kremlin-linked Roh (whose wife is a high-profile Russian, and who regularly travels to Moscow) worked with the Kremlin-linked Mifsud and Timofeev to get to Papadopoulos as soon as he was on Trump's campaign. All the evidence supports this.
@dbongino @GeorgePapa19 4/ The question is who decided to "launder" Papadopoulos post-Carson campaign by giving him a BS title with the Mifsud-linked LCILP. It was that "job" that made him a "legitimate" NatSec pick by Trump mere days later. Was it Papadopoulos' Carson campaign-mate Flynn who set it up?
@dbongino @GeorgePapa19 5/ Here's a May 2018 article by the excellent @NatashaBertrand on Roh. I recommend to her, and to everyone, listening to the George Papadopoulos interview with Bongino because Papadopoulos inadvertantly reveals a few facts important to serious journalists.…
@dbongino @GeorgePapa19 @NatashaBertrand 6/ For instance, it appears the Saudi-connected brass at the LCILP set Papadopoulos up with Mifsud in Rome. If *those* people have ties to Trump, Clovis, Flynn, or key Saudi/Israeli nationals, we've got some *big* news now about how Putin/Trump used Papadopoulos as an an asset.
@dbongino @GeorgePapa19 @NatashaBertrand 7/ @NatashaBertrand/others know the timeline:

Jan16: George ("GP")/Flynn leave Carson campaign
Feb16: Flynn to Trump campaign, GP to LCILP
Mar 6: Clovis for no reason chooses to interview GP—a M.E. "expert"—for role focused on Russia
Mar 14: LCILP sends GP to meet Russian agent
@dbongino @GeorgePapa19 @NatashaBertrand 8/ It's fairly clear that Flynn told Clovis to interview GP, but why would Flynn know (and how did he convince Clovis) GP was helpful on *Russia*? Because *within 8 days* GP working for LCILP made him helpful on Russia. And don't forget—Flynn had dined with Putin 90 days earlier.
@dbongino @GeorgePapa19 @NatashaBertrand 9/ The *obvious working theory*, which I'd suspect is Mueller's as well (unless he has contradictory evidence the public has never seen): Trump NatSec adviser Flynn, post-dining with Putin, worked with his Russian contacts to *position* Papadopoulos as a Trump-Putin intermediary.
@dbongino @GeorgePapa19 @NatashaBertrand 10/ In his Bongino interview, Papadopoulos falsely calls Timofeev "low-level" and falsely says Mifsud had no Russian ties and never represented he had any—his lies are *so* bold one actually wonders if someone has told Papadopoulos he can expect a pardon for any *future* charges.
