CLOVIS now *confirms*—as many of us said from Day 1—his "private citizen" email wasn't shutting PAPADOPOULOS down but negotiating logistics.
2/ I'm still unclear on why media first reported Clovis as "shutting down" Papadopoulos—rather than helping set terms for a Kremlin meeting.
3/ That poor reporting delayed the realization that Page's Moscow trip—during which the IC says he met Kremlin officials—met Clovis' terms.
4/ The timeline isn't complicated: Kremlin requests meeting; Papadopoulos passes on word; Clovis and others deliberate; Page sent to Moscow.
