Papadopoulos Email Claims Trump Campaign Approved Meeting With Putin's Office

George Papadopoulos

Papadopoulos had received an email from an individual with close ties to the Russian government in April 2016, and concealed that from FBI investigators.

In a statement provided to Reuters, attorney Victoria Toensing said Clovis never said that "a principal foreign policy focus of the campaign was an improved US relationship with Russia" and that Clovis opposed any Russian trip by Trump or campaign staff.

Papadopoulos, who had no formal responsibilities, communicated most with Clovis and campaign chairman Paul Manafort, an official involved with the group told the Associated Press.

The Washington Post reported on Monday that Sam Clovis was the unnamed "campaign supervisor" mentioned in a court filing that said George Papadopoulos, a foreign policy adviser on the campaign, pleaded guilty to making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "I am willing to make the trip off the record", Papadopoulos writes.

The filing coincided with a grand jury's indictment of Manafort and his associate Rick Gates for money laundering, tax fraud, and conspiracy against the United States, among other charges. Both men have been placed under house arrest, pending a bail hearing Thursday.

"Look, there is a lot of email all over the place when you're in a campaign", he said.

Papadopoulos continued to email high-ranking campaign officials about a request from Russian Federation to meet Trump.

The FBI affidavit details how Papadopoulos cultivated at least three Russian government-linked contacts who had promised "dirt" on Hillary Clinton and expressed interest in brokering a meeting between Putin and Trump.

He also asked Stretch why Facebook delayed taking down an account that purported to be linked to the Tennessee Republican party. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., that would bring political ad rules from TV, radio and print to the internet.

Page came under scrutiny in the past for a trip he took to Moscow during the campaign, which he has consistently claimed was a personal trip that had nothing to do with Trump or the election.

Papadopoulos emails an unidentified Trump campaign supervisor and several Trump foreign policy advisers to say that he had met with the professor, Putin's niece and the Russian ambassador to Britain (who was not actually present) to discuss a meeting with Russian leaders on U.S. -Russia ties under a Trump administration.

But CNN is told Papadopoulos attended another campaign policy meeting, though Trump was not in attendance. Papadopoulos and the individual have multiple conversations through Skype and emails over the next weeks about setting the "groundwork" for a possible meeting between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

Jason Maloni, a spokesman for Manafort, told Bloomberg Tuesday that his client had rebuffed overtures to meet with Russians.

As the White House dismisses Papadopoulos' role as minimal, new indications are emerging that the voluntary adviser was trying to raise his stature on the campaign.

Even if it was proven the Trump team colluded with Russia, Republicans just don't care.

Page said it was not him who encouraged Papadopoulous to travel to Russian Federation nor was he the "low level" campaign member mentioned in court documents who went to Russian Federation "so as not to send any signal".
