Former Trump advisor George Papadopoulos whose odd story played a big role in the Mueller report findings has some shocking news. While a guest on Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo’s show yesterday for an exclusive interview, Papadopoulos said he is “heading back to Greece to retrieve $10,000 that he suspects was dropped in his lap as part of an entrapment scheme by the CIA or FBI- and federal investigators want to see the marked bills, which he said are now stored in a safe place.”
On Fox News yesterday Papadopoulos said:
I was very happy to see that Devin Nunes brought that up…A man named Charles Tawil gave me this money [in Israel] under very suspicious circumstances. A simple Google search about this individual will reveal he was a CIA or State Department asset in South Africa during the ‘90s and 2000s. I think around the time when Bob Mueller was the director of the FBI.
Papadopoulos added “I have my theory of what that was all about…The money, I gave it to my attorney in Greece because I felt it was given to me under very suspicious circumstances.” His concerns were that there was collusion to “bring a FARA [Foreign Agents Registration Act] violation against me.” FARA violations aided in the prosecutions of other former Trump aides, including Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort.
It is imperative for anyone and everyone that is part of the Trump circle to be cognizant of trickery by individuals they are not familiar with, and in some cases people that are close acquaintances. Following the old adage of “if it’s too good to be true it probably is” would be a good rule anytime you suspect intelligence agents are stalking you.
