Novi CPA wants to make clear he's not 'that' George Papadopoulos

Andrew Cummings | 03 November, 2017, 01:05

"NONE!" the verified account for George Papadopoulos, financial planner and CPA, tweeted.

"For the nth time, I am NOT Trump's foreign policy adviser!".

He is now an oil, gas and policy consultant, according to his LinkedIn page.

Former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, third from left, appears in a photograph released on Donald Trump's social media accounts.

Candidate Donald Trump did not dismiss the idea of arranging a meeting with Russia's president when it was suggested in a meeting with his campaign foreign policy advisers a year ago, according to a person in the room. Papadopoulos told the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to court documents, that in a national security meeting attended by Trump and campaign advisers, he "in sum and substance" said that "he had connections that could help arrange a meeting between then-candidate Trump and President Putin". After entering his guilty plea he was ordered not to contact other Trump officials and prohibited from foreign travel. For instance, an attorney for Sam Clovis, the campaign's national co-chairman, suggested he was just "being polite" when he encouraged Papadopoulos to meet with Russian officials, and was actually trying to brush him off.

This official said Papadopoulos exchanged emails "constantly" on foreign policy matters with the Trump team during the campaign. Carter Page joins me now.

The charges are a result of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

He also argued that U.S. sanctions against Russia over the annexation of Crimea "have done little more than to turn Russia towards China as a primary market for Russian goods, services and energy". Clovis told Papadopoulos to "make the trip, if it is feasible".

Papadopoulos also met with a Russian woman in March 2016 along with the professor, according to the statement, and he relayed that information to the campaign. Papadopoulos has pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents about his contact with a professor who has ties to the Russian government. Coinciding with emerging evidence of Clovis' involvement with Russian officials during the Trump campaign, the letter calls the nomination of Clovis to be undersecretary for research, education and economics (which includes the role of chief scientist) "an abandonment of our nation's commitment to scientifically informed governance", and urges the Senate Agriculture Committee to reject it.

In late April, Papadopoulos learned about the "dirt" on Clinton, and the following day he emailed a senior campaign policy adviser: "Have some interesting messages coming in from Moscow about a trip when the time is right", according to the statement.

A separate former campaign official said the national security team was assembled "to demonstrate that then-candidate Trump was becoming more informed on foreign affairs issues".

That's a hard claim to swallow, since Papadopoulos was in regular contact with top campaign officials and met with a number of foreign officials as a Trump surrogate.

Papadopoulos was arrested in July and has been interviewed repeatedly by authorities, the filing said.
