nearvideo George Papadopoulos talks about what next after Müller probe finds no collusion
The former trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos clarified that the “misinformation” about his confession in the Russian probe, said on Tuesday that the whole thing was fabricated “in principle” by the Western intelligence services.
The 31-year-old, who pleaded guilty in October 2017, to making false statements to FBI agents, said on “Fox & Friends” that he knew that the probe by Robert Müller was a “hoax”, but can’t talk about it until after he was sentenced.
“There has been so much misinformation about what is my real case. It was a professor I met in London, said the FBI, the world was a Russian agent,” he said.

Papadopoulos was talking about Joseph Misfud, who has told the FBI, was a Russian agent with ties to high-ranking Russian officials. He was declared as missing by Italian officials in September 2018.
“I met this man through an intermediary, the FBI in the UK, and I met him at a University in Rome. I never expected that this guy is a Russian agent,” said Papadopoulos. “Then, one day, this person tells me that the Russians have Hillary Clinton the E-mail out of the blue. I don’t believe in him. This was not a credible person.”

Papadopoulos said that the meeting followed by a “bizarre” encounter with Alexander Downer, the top Australian diplomat in the United Kingdom, where he commented on the assertion that Russia has Clinton the E-Mails triggered the FBI investigation into Trump’s presidential campaign.
“I was actually the one who reported, Downer, both the FBI Bob Mueller, because of his bizarre, strange behaviour during my session with him. He pulled out his cell phone, he was recording me. It was very bizarre,” he said.

Papadopoulos, who served 14 days in a prison in Wisconsin, said he was questioned for more than 20 hours where they allegedly tried to force him to confess that he had said that someone on the Trump presidential campaign, about his meeting with Misfud.
“Because, if I would have said, someone in the campaign, it could have been a conspiracy, but it would have been, based on Western intelligence services, basically, the production of the whole thing,” he said. “I speak to Müller ‘ s people and they are trying to tell me something, what I know is not true, I just could. I had to stay to the facts, the truth.”
