On Saturday, Democratic congressman Ted Lieu of California cautioned that special counsel Robert Mueller “knows far more than people think,” with reference to a new report on the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
Pointing to a Saturday New York Times report which stated that former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadapoulos was unknowingly the catalyst for triggering the FBI’s investigation into Russian collusion. By drunkenly telling an Australian diplomat that the Russians had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton, Papadopoulos drew concern and attention that the Trump team most certainly did not want.
“Important story below,” Lieu tweeted. “Keep in mind no one was really aware of George Papadopoulos until his guilty plea was revealed. That tells us Special Counsel Mueller knows far more than people think. And Papadopoulos is cooperating with Mueller. The White House should be scared.”
