Bombshell Claim Raises New Questions: Mueller Threatened To Charge Papadopoulos As Unregistered Agent Of Israel

Special Counsel Robert Mueller threatened to charge former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos as an unregistered agent of Israel, according to his wife.

Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos, an Italian attorney who married Papadopoulos roughly 90 days ago, claimed that Mueller had evidence her husband had worked on behalf of Israel without registering as a foreign agent during his time as an energy consultant, and prior to joining the Trump campaign. The claim was made in interviews with the Daily Caller and the Washington Post - where Simona also said George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to avoid the Israel-linked charges.

“I know he doesn’t have anything to do with Russia,” she told The Post. “We know he was under scrutiny because of his ties to Israel, not his ties to Russia. So what’s this about?

In October 2015, Papadopoulos wrote a column for the Israeli publication Haaretz entitled “Natural Gas Isn’t Just about Israel.” He also attended a series of energy conferences in Israel, including one held in April 2016, just days after he was named to Trump’s campaign, according to Israeli media accounts.

During those years, he became acquainted with Eli Groner, who has served since 2015 as a top aide to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. -WaPo

Simona's new claims are vastly different than what she said in January before she and George married - when she suggested to the Washington Post that Papadopoulos would be remembered like John Dean, the former White House counsel who flipped on Nixon's administration and became a key witness. 

“There’s a lot to come,” she said then. “He was the first one to break a hole on all of this.”

On Tuesday, however, her tune had changed - saying that her earlier comments were misinterpreted and that she and George had reassessed events after learning that Cambridge professor Stefan Halper had been conducting espionage on the Trump campaign for the FBI. Halper hired Papadopoulos to write an energy paper in London in the fall of 2016, paying him $3,000 for his efforts.

George took responsibility for lying to the FBI and cooperated with the government. Cooperating doesn’t mean following an agenda,” she said. “Cooperating doesn’t mean against the president. . . . It means cooperating with the truth.” 

Simona says George has been wronged and deserves a pardon from President Trump - that he is “a victim, honestly,” who "made a mistake. He pleaded guilty for that mistake. It would make sense for the president to pardon him.”

Before joining the Trump campaign in March 2016 as a foreign policy advisor, George Papadopoulos lived in London, working as a researcher for the Hudson Institute think tank, and later as an independent energy consultant. Despite his work on Israel, Cyprus and Greece while at the Hudson Institute, a person familiar with the Institute told the Washington Post that nobody from the Special Counsel's office has ever contacted them regarding Papadopoulos's work there

Meanwhile, it was Papadopoulos' May 10 alleged "drunken barroom admission" to former Australian diplomat Alexander Downer that the Russians had information which "could be damaging" to Hillary Clinton. Papadopolous was originally told of the allged Russian plot two weeks earlier on April 26, by Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud (missing since October 2017) - whose organization George Papadopoulos met his wife through.

Which brings us to an interesting thread...

Noting that Papadopoulos and his new wife met on LinkedIn, Twitter user @rising_serpent makes the case that some things just aren't adding up. The 27-part tweetstorm is condensed underneath the first post: 

2. That connection was Joseph Mifsud, a most mysterious former Maltese government official who ran an institute called the London Centre of International Law Practice in Britain. THE Joseph Mifsud now made infamous by her husbands indictment by Robert Muller.

3. Mangiante, started working at the organization after meeting Mifsud while she was employed at European Parliament in Brussels. Papadopoulos, who had worked for Mifsud’s organization as well, reached out to say he liked her profile picture.

(articleGeorge Papadopoulos, his bride-to-be, and the Russia-linked ‘professor’ who brought them together)

4. Mangiante left the London Centre of International law after three months, after concluding the law office was “a facade for something else.” But the two continued to talk over the Internet, before meeting in person for the first time in New York in spring 2017.

5. Mangiante was introduced to Mifsud in 2012 by Gianni Pittella, a well-known Italian MEP who in 2014 became president of the Socialists and Progressive Democrats group. “I always saw Mifsud with Pittella,” So, Mangiante knew Mifsud for many years before she did Papadopoulos

6. Mangiante worked for 2 European parliament officials, Mairead McGuinness, a vice-president & McGuinness’s Italian predecessor Roberta Angelilli. She was also admin to home affairs committee under Martin Schulz, then a German MEP & now leader of Germany’s Social Democrats

7. So Mangiante moved within the corridors of power within Europe's Italian Democrats & German social democrats. When her contract expired, Pittella suggested she go work for Mifsud in London who offered her a job in 2016 at the London Centre of International Law Practice

8. in September 2016, Mangiante received a message on the LinkedIn social network from George Papadopoulos. Papadopoulos had worked at the same London Center of International law centre briefly before joining Trump’s campaign. That was the beginning of their acquaintance.

9. It appears that Mangiante started her job around September 2016, the same time as she started corresponding with Papadopoulos. Mangiante was not happy with her work in London.

(articleThe boss, the boyfriend and the FBI: the Italian woman in the eye of the Trump-Russia inquiry)

10. The entire institution seemed “fake”, “artificial”, with Mifsud interested solely in organising political meetings. “I didn’t smell a culture of academia" Mifsud’s diplomatic activity, Mangiante now believes, was a facade. “I never met any Russians there”

11. Mangiante quit her post there after three months, in November 2016. In the meantime, Mangiante’s romance with George began. After several unsuccessful efforts to get together in London, they met in March 2017 in New York. They hit it off, began dating and fell in love

12. Prior to meeting Mangiante, FBI had interviewed Papadopoulos Jan 2017 in connection with the collusion investigation. Papadopoulos gave federal agents a false account of his meetings with Mifsud. So he deleted his Facebook account and changed his cellphone number.

13. So almost 3 months prior to Papadopoulos actually meeting Mangiante he was already in the crosshairs of FBI, he was deleting facebook, changing phone numbers and like James Bond, was actively romancing a beautiful woman. Plausibility check # 1, what do you think ?

14. On the day Papadopoulos pleaded guilty, Mangiante was at her boyfriend’s family home in Chicago. There was a ring at the door. A casually dressed man informed her that he was a federal agent. He was serving her with a subpoena from Mueller.

15. Mangiante decided not to hire a lawyer after discovering they cost $800 an hour. She turned up alone at Chicago FBI headquarters. the FBI was interested in her relationship with Papadopoulos. Was it genuine? “They asked: “Do you love him?” “Yes”. They replied: ‘He is lucky’”

16. Plausibility check # 2. Do you think about how much lawyers cost when the FBI tells you that your boyfriend is chin deep in legal manure and you may be too? Stormy Daniels gets a lawyer for free, but someone being investigated by the FBI thinks about a lawyers cost?

17. March 2016 Papadopoulous learned he would be Trumps foreign policy advisors, he ended up meeting Mifusud on March 14 2016 while he was traveling in Italy (where Mangiante was, coincidentally). Important: He met Mifsud first in Italy, see indictment (click here)

18. Mifusd's interest is piqued when he learned that Papadopoulos was going to be involved with the Trump campaign. They meet again subsequently in London on March 24th 2016 when Mifusd was accompanied by the "Putins niece" Olga Vinogradova, who like Mifsud has now disappeared.

19. Papadopoulos met Mifusd again on April 24th 2016 for breakfast at a London hotel. This is the first time that Mifsud tells him he knows the Russians have "dirt" on Hillary. Mind you the DNC leaks weren't published till June/July 2016. Important point right there.

20. That DNC was hacked by the Russians remains a matter of great contention and those with exquisite expertise in cybersecurity don't agree with the assertion that Russians hacked it. Remember the only people that conducted the investigation into the hack were CrowdStrike

21. Now we turn the bizarre dial to 11, why did Papadopoulos say to Mangiante when he was looking at her LinkedIn profile that they worked for the same company? Two things wrong with this: I couldn't find any evidence that Paps worked for the London center of international law

22. and if he did, he would have known Mifsud from his work, so the whole theory of his being introduced to Mifusd falls flat.

23. The BIG question: by the time Papadopoulos began corresponding with Mangiante in Sept 2016, he was a part of the Trump Campaign, what was he looking at LinkedIn profiles of people working at the London center of international law for? What am I missing here? 

24. I have more questions than answers, but the timeline just doesn't add up, there is a lot missing here apart from my functioning neuronal circuitry. All of this is important in the context of Mangiante's recent media blitz and her asking for Trump to pardon Papadopoulos.

25. Feel free to add to what I have just outlined. Things are not only a little askew here but seems that we are seeing this whole matter askance and many facts are obscured by layers of hearsay disguised as factual information. -fin.

26. Addendum: anybody else find it most peculiar that Mangiante worked for Italian and German social democrats? Especially now that we know that MI6 (Downer/Steele/Halper) were probably involved with the genesis of the Steele dossier?

27. Mifusud appears to be more aligned with the UK than he is with the Russians, Mangiante herself said so. Also she has since dialed down her touting of her husbands role in the Trump campaign, why?

Questions? An even deeper analysis into Papadopoulos and Mifsud can be found here.

Maybe what's really going on is that it's not an investigation about Russia, but about Israel?

Have the FBI and CIA been using "Russian election meddling" as a cover to conduct an investigation about how Israel/Netanyahu infiltrated the Trump campaign and the Trump White House?

Everyone every single person who is lobbying my government on behalf of any foreign government or foreign-registered Corporation who has not registered as a foreign agent should go to jail right fucking now.

These motherfuckers lobbying my government for favors, while Americans do without, lose their jobs to foreigners, and pay 20 times what everybody else in the world pays for pharmaceuticals, and all the other things that zero hedgers can list.

"why did Papadopoulos say to Mangiante when he was looking at her LinkedIn profile that they worked for the same company?"

Because that "company" is MOSSAD duh!!!

Just fucking nuke that steaming pile of pig manure to the ground till there's nothing left there but ashes. Even the Palestinians would thank you for that. Heck, they'd be the first ones to!

You know I’m with you and your comment makes sense but don’t these Israeli connections concern you at all? Think about it, what was Flynn busted over? They SAY lying but they insinuated it was because he tried to influence Russia through the UN angle but it turned out Flynn was influencing the UN for ISRAEL. I remember that very clearly. Plus some other things have been puzzling me, if I allow myself wild speculation, and if you replace “Russia” with “Israel” some of those puzzles make a lot more sense.


I’m much more inclined to agree with you this is actually evidence of the “Russian Professor” being connected to Britain not Russia, but what the fuck is all this Israeli shit? It could be the reasons the left is attacking Israel these days as they can make a much better case of the Trump Team colluding with Israel and if the left succeeds at demonizing Israel then it sets things up nicely for the busted FBI leadership that’s being found out. However, this Israeli connection concerns me and I’m not so sure it would be wise to turn a blind eye towards it.


WHY did Trump say one day, I’m taking all our soldiers out of Syria, then the VERY NEXT DAY a “chemical attack” occurs and he decided to bomb Syria and keep our troops there? It took me for a loop, a very BIG fucking loop and it wasn’t lost on me that right after that Israel openly went to war with Iran in Syria and no longer “hid” their attacks. The only reason it didn’t escalate into a Third World War was because Putin didn’t fall for their trap. 


If you’ve read my comments at all, you KNOW I am a die hard Trumptard and proud of it too. But this is worrisome. Trump bombing Syria was out of order and NOT what I voted for and it confused the hell out of me. I DO believe Trump honestly has run for President because he cares for this country, but look at what he’s up against. Wouldn’t it make sense he would turn to Israel for help against the DNC machine? Wouldn’t it make sense they own him now and that is why he keeps winning? Think about it, HE NEVER LOSES! 


Holy crap, what will I do with myself now? Sit back and observe as always I guess, but I’m not closing my eyes to possibilities I may not like. I admire Jews, I respect Jews and I could never hate Jews but I don’t want ANY foreign government running MY country! Holy Crap! We HAVE to know! Israel wants to go to war with Iran and we CANNOT do another Iraq. We will NEVER survive it.

Obviously you have trouble reading. The article CLEARLY ties Joseph Mifsud with BRITISH INTELLIGENCE not Russia and since sweet Olga didn’t turn out to be related to ANYONE in the Russian government it’s plainly a set up. ONCE AGAIN EVIDENCE OF A SET UP, it’s just clear now why all those FBI agent’s went to Britain in March 2016. Papa begging for a pardon, through his “wife” no less seems to me more of the set up. Ain’t a chance in hell Trump will pardon him because that’s exactly what they want him to do so they can get him on obstruction of justice. Remember Congress only needs a “reason” or “appearances” to impeach Trump, they don’t need a real crime.


If you had ANY cognitive abilities you’d understand why all these comments are MUCH more concerned about the revelations about the Israeli ties. Everyone on here knows I am absolutely against the “Jewish conspiracy” rhetoric and admittedly I still haven’t researched a trilogy of articles yet; however, even I can’t deny the connections to Israel laced throughout the Trump Campaign and Presidency.  This IS a very interesting report. HAD the FBI accused Trump’s campaign colluding with Israel I think the Trump White House would have had a lot of difficulties explaining themselves. This all boggles the mind, but I’m eager to read that trilogy now. My gawd, can you imagine if all along these Jew haters have been right? Holy fuck!

At least that part is pretty damn transparent. How could all of these intelligence people have let this unravel so completely? This is being laid bare as a pure set up and the dots are stringing together like a pearl necklace. NEVER have we seen the FBI, CIA so stripped in the open to where even the main stream populace can see it. But that begs the question: how is Trump doing it without the FBI or the DOJ on his side? 


Gawd, I HATE saying this but Trump turning to Israeli when he saw what he was up against with the “Russian Narrative” and the insanity of the deep state and the DNC makes sense. If Israel reached out to him he’d grab it in a second, wouldn’t he? Wouldn’t you? I don’t hate Jews, I would, innocently I would. Doesn’t it ALSO make sense that Israel intelligence has ALL the secrets and that’s why the FBI, NSA and CIA and all their power cannot make one inch on Trump? Not one fucking inch, does that puzzle you?


I’ve even commented here perhaps the Religous folks are right because it DOES seem like divine intervention Trump is so consistently winning. BUT if you put the power of Israel behind him, it ALL makes sense that he’d win hands down with THEIR intelligence agencies at his service. Gawd, I hate speculating all of this but don’t we have to consider it? What if Israel ends up owning our President? Even if he’s a decent guy, do YOU want Israel influencing our President on a personal level? 


I ask you these things because I want different answers than what is swirling around in my head right now. Give me different reasons Trump would be winning SO completely when EVERYTHING powerful is against him. Think about it, Israel intelligence would know ALL as it was happening. Gawd, if I was Trump I would welcome their help, how could he not? But IF he did, doesn’t that mean they now own him? Fuck, tell me something to get my mind out of this Jewish gutter cause I don’t like being here.

Lubavitchers are the world money laundering cartel, the nexus between Putin, Russian/jew/Israeli oligarchs,Trump/Kushner/Cohen/Hannity real estate financing, Israel and the pending Trump attack on Iran at Israel's direction. Everybody wins, oligarchs and real estate sleazes get wealthy, Putin recovers Ukraine for his USSR Lite wet dream, Israel has US attack and occupy Iran at great expense. The only losers are US taxpayers and GIs and Ukrainian and Persian populations who will get Iraqi style bloodbaths.

Now see, that’s what I DON’T buy because it doesn’t make sense EVERYONE in EVERY level of EVERY government on EVERY subject is a Jewish conspiracy. If you have any real experience at life, things are not and can never be that successful, never. That’s why it’s always been easy to discount you guys. If you think one group can control everything then you’ve never had any true experience with governing (nor life for that matter.) It NEVER works smooth for anyone ALWAYS ALL THE TIME no matter how slick or powerful they are. It’s the exact same as: You can fool some of the people all of the time. You can fool all of the people some of the time. But you CANNOT fool all of the people all of the time. It works the same way in government, you can get a good run but you can’t keep it up forever nor completely without totalitarianism. We do NOT have a totalitarian government no matter what you think. 


However, if you put the “you can fool all of the people some of the time” in the forefront this just MIGHT (and I say MIGHT) be one of those times. Putin isn’t in league with the US and he would NEVER be in league with us no matter what banks would offer him. He absolutely supports Iran and so do all his buddies, but it is THAT fact which would make forces come together to annihilate Iran. Remember not everyone is a banker so you would HAVE to have other carrots available than just money. Russia makes a mighty fine carrot.


GAWD, I cannot believe I’m typing this shit!! I like Jews! I admire Jews! But hmmmmmmmmmmm . . . I cannot believe I’m considering this shit. Somebody PLEASE explain to me why this can’t be, I don’t want to be here but I need something to convince me why this Jewish conspiracy shit cannot be true. It’s going to take more than, you just hate Jews, because I don’t!
