And, the "Coffee Boy" Spoke

On October 5th (2017) Geroge Papadopoulos, a Trump campaign adviser, and probable campaign operative pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI. His plea agreement document is linked, here.

While the White House dissed Papadopoulos as a "low-level volunteer", some associated with the Trump Administration referred the young operative as a "coffee boy." Michael Caputo, the former campaign official told CNN's Chris Cuomo Papadopoulos was a (mere) coffee boy. While we know Caputo is yet another Trump presstitute who lies for pay on CNN, the one-minute segment is worth an embed. It is interesting to note the on-camera segment was broadcast on Halloween.

"Low-level volunteer", "coffee boy", or ex-Ben Carson adviser, it seems the young operative, is typical of the quality of staff and advisers hired by Trump and his incompetent transition team. Apparently, George has a penchant for drinking and running his mouth after a few too many sips of his favorite libation. The New York Times is reporting Trump's international operative while visiting Australia Papadopoulos got drunk and spilled a few administration killing beans (secrets)  to an official who reported his remarks to the US FBI.

During a night of heavy drinking at an upscale London bar in May 2016, George Papadopoulos, a young foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, made a startling revelation to Australia’s top diplomat in Britain: Russia had political dirt on Hillary Clinton.

About three weeks earlier, Mr. Papadopoulos had been told that Moscow had thousands of emails that would embarrass Mrs. Clinton, apparently stolen in an effort to try to damage her campaign.
 The Times reporting is stellar press reporting and a possible tsunami wave against Trump's efforts to claim and advance his "no collusion" rhetoric. 

If the Times piece doesn't fit our reading preference, I have posted (below) a Twitter thread from Seth Abramson.

(THREAD) BREAKING: The NYT has published a bombshell report on George Papadopoulos—the biggest Trump-Russia news since Flynn's plea. This thread dissects the new revelations—as well as some major implications for the Trump-Russia collusion narrative. I hope you'll read and share.

During Trump's recent impromptu interview with a writer for the New York Times, he stated "no collusion" 16 times in 30 minutes.  Amazingly, the 16 proclamations accompanied 24 verifiable instances of Trump lies ( in the brief interview).
