@SethAbramson has recently posted a monster 100 tweet thread that gives the best outline I have read of what is known about Papadopoulos and the Trump campaign’s aiding and abetting Russia’s criminal hacking. It turns out George is a Middle East oil expert who suddenly became a Russia expert, helping Trump with his first big foreign policy speech. Then he was told he could have any job in the Trump admin, only to see that promise vanish after Flynn’s public troubles began. Now he’s just a coffee boy.
(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. pic.twitter.com/vHDvlxkqsF
