Papadopoulos received $10,000—with a promise of more—at a meeting in Tel Aviv with the CEO of Israeli company Terrogence at a time (mid-2017) when he was still wrongly thought to be a viable Trump agent. What does Terrogence do? Harvest data from Facebook.…
2/ In August 2016, George Nader—repping a cabal of Middle Eastern leaders including Egypt's Al-Sissi—went to Trump Tower with the CEO of *another* Israeli company that harvests Facebook data to offer to collude with Trump. 6 weeks later, Papadopoulos introduced Trump to al-Sissi.
3/ When George Papadopoulos was working for Ben Carson—only because he'd unsuccessfully tried to get a job with Trump in mid-'15—somehow an Israeli company that... harvests Facebook data... came to be under contract with Carson. Boy—that's a lot of coincidences. But there's more.
4/ During the Trump transition, as Papadopoulos was said to be working "closely" with Flynn—who'd himself, in 2015, been recruited to join the Israeli intel company that visited Trump Tower in mid-2016—that very company publicly announced a partnership with...Cambridge Analytica.
5/ A question: why the *hell* were Israeli intel firms swarming *all over* Trump and his national security advisers *during a presidential campaign*—not once but *over and over and over again*, at various points offering jobs, money, domestic disinformation schemes and collusion?
6/ Papadopoulos' 2017 meeting with Terrogence was attended by Charles Tawil, who admits Papadopoulos came onto his radar screen... when he introduced Trump to al-Sissi in 2016.

That's odd, given that there was no public reporting of Papadopoulos' role in that meeting until 2017.
7/ Papadopoulos' wife says the Russia-investigating Mueller *began* investigating Papadopoulos as an Israeli agent—which is really interesting when you consider that all Israelis Papadopoulos was connected to offered social media-harvesting schemes *identical* to what Russia did.
8/ All this would only interesting if Papadopoulos' mate on the Carson and Trump campaigns—Mike Flynn—had a "Middle East Marshall Plan" that involved getting the governments of Israel and Russia on the same page with Saudi Arabia and the UAE, which he didn't.

Oh no, wait—he did.
9/ But all this would only be interesting as to *Trump* if Trump lied about having one-on-one talks with Papadopoulos, offered Papadopoulos a "blank check" for a job in his administration, and kept Papadopoulos aboard longer than any NatSec adviser besides Flynn.

Oh wait—he did?
10/ Papadopoulos may be done with Mueller, but I'm not at all sure Mueller is done with Papadopoulos. /end
SOURCE/ Listen everyone—we all better start reading foreign media. Because American media clearly *isn't*, with the result that we get like 5% of the story. International news stories require knowing international news *reporting*—basically Journalism 101.…
PS/ We keep forgetting Flynn was illegally negotiating—at the Trumps' direction—US policy involving *two* nations in December 2016. What were they? Russia and Israel. US media leaves out Israel every time it discusses Flynn's illegal acts, thus cutting off the story at the knees.
SOURCE/ I've said all along that either Jared has been cooperating since even before Flynn *or* Flynn's cooperation with Mueller has made Jared a target. It's basically one or the other, as Jared was up to some *nasty* work prior to and after Election Day.…
SOURCE/ Flynn's lawyer, after Trump fired Flynn: "Gen. Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it." A defense lawyer doesn't make a public cooperation offer like that unless he can damn well deliver. And Mueller now says he has.…
SOURCE/ Of course, there's *no* evidence Trump was worried that Flynn's "story to tell" would implicate him *personally*, which is why he didn't stay in touch with Flynn after he fired him.
