Sekulow: Papadopoulos Charged With Lying to FBI Proves ‘Collusion’ Not a Crime (VIDEO)
An attorney for Trump Jay Sekulow and his son, attorney Jordan Sekulow of the ACLJ discussed Mueller’s recent charges on their radio show Jay Live.
Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was indicted Monday. Former campaign volunteer, George Papadopoulos also plead guilty to lying to federal agents.
Attorney Jordan Sekulow points out that Papadopoulos told the FBI he had been conversing with Russians and he even tried setting up meeting with Russians. Since this isn’t a crime, he was only charged with lying to the FBI agents about some of the specifics.
Mueller’s charges ironically prove his witch hunt isn’t based on U.S. law. Rather, his entire investigation is a witch hunt spurred by Hillary Clinton’s $9 million fake Russia dossier.
Criminal codes based on ‘collusion’ simply do not exist and Mueller’s charges are proof of that.

The Gateway Pundit’s Joe Hoft reported on attorney Gregg Jarrett’s interpretation:
Shortly after the indictments were unsealed, the media’s spirits were suddenly boosted when the special counsel revealed that a former adviser to Trump pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with a Russian national during his time on the Trump campaign. Surely this was evidence of illegal “collusion,” right?
Wrong. George Papadopoulos pled guilty to a single charge of making a false statement to the FBI. He was not charged with so-called “collusion” because no such crime exists in American statutory law, except in anti-trust matters. It has no application to elections and political campaigns.
Jarrett points out that Mueller’s charges actually give legal standing to argue in court the appointment of Mueller was illegal:
Until now, no one had legal “standing” to argue in court that the appointment of Mueller was illegal. The criminal charges change all that. The two defendants will be able to argue before a judge that Mueller’s appointment by Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein violated the special counsel law.
It’s time to end this farce now. Mueller should be investigated for his role in the Uranium One scandal along with the other Deep State operatives.
