JOHN SOLOMON: Newly Declassified FBI Memos Directly Conflict with Mueller Team Claims in Papadopoulos Sentencing Memo

Newly declassified FBI memos contradict court filings Mueller’s prosecutors made in asking a judge to send George Papadopoulos to prison.

George Papadopoulos was a former Trump campaign foreign policy advisor who was targeted by Deep State spies and ultimately indicted and imprisoned by Mueller’s thugs for “making false statements and omissions” to the feds.

The FBI memos released under FOIA, put the focus on Aaron Zelinsky who recently resigned after Bill Barr smacked him down for recommending Roger Stone serve 7 to 9 years in prison.

Zelinsky ‘resigned in protest’ after the DOJ, in a rare move, refiled the Roger Stone sentencing memo he signed — and Judge Amy Berman Jackson ultimately agreed with Bill Barr that 7 to 9 years was an excessive and harsh sentence for Roger Stone.

Zelinsky was also one of Mueller’s prosecutors who signed the sentencing memo seeking prison time for George Papadopoulos.

Zelinsky and two other prosecutors argued that Papadopoulos lied in order to hinder the feds’ ability in February 2017 to question and or arrest a Maltese professor named Joseph Mifsud.

But what Mueller’s prosecutors wrote in the Papadopoulos sentencing memo directly contradicts what Papadopoulos actually told the feds in newly released FBI memos, according to award winning investigative journalist John Solomon.

John Solomon reported:

According to the sentencing memo signed by Zelinsky and fellow Mueller prosecutors Jeannie Rhee and Andrew Goldstein: Papadopoulos’ “lies undermined investigators’ ability to challenge the Professor or potentially detain or arrest him while he was still in the United States. The government understands that the Professor left the United States on February 11, 2017 and he has not returned to the United States since then.” added as link.

But FBI 302 reports detailing agents’ interviews with Papadopoulos show that he had in fact supplied information that would have enabled investigators to challenge or potentially detain or arrest  Mifsud while he was in the United States.

Papadopoulos, a former volunteer foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, told agents during an interview on Feb. 10, 2017 that he “inquired to Mifsud about how he knew the Russians had [Clinton’s] emails, to which Mifsud strangely chuckled and responded, ‘they told me they have them.’”

According to the Mueller Report, in an interview with the FBI on the same day, Feb. 10, Mifsud “denied that he had advance knowledge that Russia was in possession of emails damaging to candidate Clinton.”

Mifsud did not leave Washington until the next day, Feb. 11. Papadopoulos’ information should have enabled investigators to confront Mifsud with conflicting testimony on a point of critical importance to the stated purpose of the Russia collusion investigation before the professor’s departure. But this information was not mentioned in Team Mueller’s original statement of offense, or plea agreement, filed Oct. 5, 2017 nor its later sentencing recommendation. In contrast, those documents portray Papadopoulos as trying to thwart the investigation.

According to Mueller’s prosecutors’ August 2018 sentencing memo,  “the defendant’s false statements were intended to harm the investigation, and did so.” Papadopoulos’ “lies negatively affected the FBI’s Russia investigation,” they argued, “and prevented the FBI from effectively identifying and confronting witnesses in a timely fashion.”

The FBI memos however, show Papadopoulos engaging and showing willingness to cooperate and help the feds locate Mifsud.

Papadopoulos told the FBI that Mifsud reached out to him via email on February 10, 2017 and told him he was in Washington, DC — this was completely omitted from the sentencing memo.

None of Mueller’s indictments implicated any underlying crime. Every indictment stemmed from a process crime that derived from Mueller’s witch hunt.

In other words, Mueller’s witch hunt created all the crimes since there was no underlying crime and the prosecutors lied and omitted information in order to put Trump’s associates in prison.
