Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos meets with a Russian national in London who tells him that the Kremlin has thousands of emails with dirt on Hillary Clinton.

“They have dirt on her,” Papadopoulos said he was told. “They have thousands of emails.”

In 2017, when the FBI questions Papadopoulos about meeting Russian officials, he tells them that any contacts he’s had with Russians took place before he joined the Trump campaign. That’s a lie, and he goes to prison (for only 12 days) because of it.

The Trump campaign knew about and encouraged his communications with Russia.

When Papadopolous told one campaign official about his early attempts to work with the professor and the Russian woman to orchestrate a meeting, the supervisor told him in an email: “Great work.” 

The campaign supervisor also encouraged him to take an “off the record” meeting with Russian officials “if it is feasible,” according to the emails.

A second campaign official at one point said Trump himself shouldn’t take any trip to meet with the Russians; instead, “it should be someone low level in the campaign so as not to send any signal.”
