Very interesting plot points @Pet_Proletariat
…and Papadopoulos got caught red-handed with his lies.
It seems as of Jan 2017 that FBI was already hot on the trail of Russian contacts and the T campaign.
We know that a counter-intelligence FBI search was underway when Papadopoulos was drunk-splaining the Hillary emails to the Australian diplomat - that must have been pre-Trump win.
Here’s another link re: timeline and who the Professor is…(not Stefan Halper who Papadapoulos exposed as an FBI informant)
Some key dates and contacts
Feb. 28, 2014. Michael Flynn participates in a national security seminar at Cambridge University organized by Halper and Richard Dearlove, the former head of Britain’s intelligence service.
The Trump campaign begins
June 16, 2015. Trump announces his candidacy.
Summer 2015. Hackers believed to be linked to the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) gain access to the network of the Democratic National Committee, according to U.S. intelligence agencies.
March 6, 2016. Papadopoulos is asked to join the Trump campaign as an adviser on foreign policy issues. He had previously been advising Ben Carson’s unsuccessful presidential campaign. His initial conversation about joining the campaign was with Clovis, who, Papadopoulos told prosecutors, suggested that improving relations with Russia was a key campaign goal. (Clovis has denied that.)
March 14, 2016. Papadopoulos meets in Italy with a London-based professor named Joseph Mifsud, director of the London Academy of Diplomacy. Until he learns that Papadopoulos is tied to the Trump campaign, Mifsud is uninterested in talking.
March 21, 2016. Trump publicly identifies Papadopoulos and Page as part of his foreign policy advisory team.
March 31, 2016. The foreign policy advisory team meets. Trump tweets about it.
