As we said when we told you about the Paul Manafort and Rick Gates indictments, Mueller Time is just beginning. So here's another thing! A low-level Trump campaign "policy" adviser named George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI on October 5, in news that Robert Mueller just now allowed to be unsealed today FOR SOME REASON. Can't imagine why! And it's only a one-count guilty plea. Legal experts are saying that's a signal that maybe this kid is officially a cooperating witness in the Mueller investigation, and maybe Mueller is sending a signal to all of Trump World that he means serious business right now. Legal expert "Wonkette.com" is saying there is no MAYBE about it, since it fucking says so in the very last line of the plea, all, quote, "he is soooo cooperating and giving us soooo much information, sooooo many numerous times." LEARN TO READ, LEGAL EXPERTS, LIKE YOUR WONKETTE.

George Papadopoulos might not be a Trump campaign idiot you think about every day. He was listed as a foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump in March 2016, as part of the team that included Dumbest (Until Now) Russian Spy Ever Carter Page. Papadopoulos seems to have spent most of his tenure at the campaign trying to bug Paul Manafort and others about setting up meetings between Donald Trump and high level Russians, up to and including Vladimir Putin. At the time, it seemed like he was a little dumb pipsqueak, and since emails showing what Papadopoulos was up to were actually turned over by the Trump administration, people figured he was a minor player in the #scandal.

But maybe there's more to this story! And maybe it is a VERY STUPID STORY, if Padadopoulos's statement of offense is any indication.

Papadopoulos said all the lies to the FBI on January 27, 2017. (For context, former DOJ official Matthew Miller notes this is the same day Donald Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to sign a loyalty oath in blood and jizz. OK, Miller did not say the "blood and jizz" part.)

Lie numero uno:

OH GOD IT'S HER FUCKING EMAILS AGAIN. Remember how the Russians approached Donald Trump Jr. claiming to have sexxxy dirt on Hillary? That meeting was in June of 2016. In May of 2016, a Russian military intelligence officer was picked up in surveillance bragging that Russia was about to fuck Hillary Clinton the fuck up. Also in 2016, Trump data gurus Cambridge Analytica approached Trump-Russia data gurus Wikileaks to see if they could help find Hillary Clinton's mythological "33,000 deleted emails." Meanwhile, Michael Flynn's alleged buddy Peter Smith, who is currently dead, was ALSO bragging about working with Russian hackers to find those emails.

We are sensing a theme here.

So PAPADOPOULOS had a PROFESSOR with "ties to" RUSSIA, and the PROFESSOR was going to give him all the dirty Hillary Clinton emails. And the kid lied to the FBI and said he wasn't part of the campaign at the time, when he totally was.

The second lie was that Papadopoulos tried to tell the FBI his professor friend was just some nobody, when in reality he believed his professor friend was a super-cool secret powerful "ties to" Russia person who was trusting him and only him to share THE SECRETS. Papadopoulos also lied to the FBI about another Russian contact, who was an actual bona fide lady Russian (!!!).

It all started on March 14, 2016, when Papadopoulos was on holiday in Italy, just like in every spy movie ever, and met the PROFESSOR, who didn't give two shits about him until he revealed he was joining the Trump campaign. A week later the PROFESSOR brought the LADY SEXY RUSSIAN PERSON with him to meet the kid. PROFESSOR said she was related to VLADIMIR PUTIN!

Over the course of the next month, there was much back and forth between the idiot kid and his Russians, and the kid dutifully reported back to "advisers" and "senior advisers" and "senior campaign officials" and such as on the Trump campaign about setting up meetings with high level Russians. Then in late April, the PROFESSOR told the kid about the sexxxy Hillary Clinton dirt they had to share:

THIS WAS SO 'SCITING! HILLARY DIRTS! And he was Skyping with the Russian Lady Human Spy all the time too, about doing a top secret foreign policy trip to Russia too! But her emails! Lady Russians! Maybe lose virginity in process?

(The trip never happened. Awwwwww.)

Note also that when the Russians told him about these alleged "thousands of emails," we did not yet know Russian hackers had infiltrated the DNC or the Hillary Clinton campaign. But the Trump campaign mighta had a clue, seems like! (FYI, the hack of the John Podesta emails happened in March.)

After Papadopoulos lied to the FBI about all this in January of 2017, he suddenly deleted his Facebook and threw away his Obamaphone, because that's what innocent people do. He was arrested on July 27, 2017, and has met with the government "on numerous occasions to provide information and answer questions," which lends more credence to what we said above, about how it looks like he's an official cooperating witness, which Jesus of course he is.

Trump idiots are reacting predictably to the Papadopoulos news. They don't know her, just like they don't know Paul Manafort:

It's going to be really weird when they try to claim they've never met Jared Kushner.

Deutsche Bank shitcanned its own internal compliance reports to disappear suspicious Trump and Kushner transactions and make sure Treasury never got wind of them? You mean the bank that continued to make loans to Trump after every other lender tapped out, that accepted his overnight doubling of his "net worth" by claiming his brand was worth $4 billion, that continued to write him checks after he defaulted and then sued them claiming the 2008 financial crisis was an "act of God?" Those prudent beancounters cut corners to benefit their wealthy clients? FAM, WE ARE SHOOK.

No, not really. It would be shocking to find out that the private wealth managers let algorithms work their magic on high net worth individuals and turned the reports over to Treasury like they would for some guy making $75,000 who got a $19,000 wire from the Isle of Man. The rules for rich people are different, and Deutsche Bank did not get to be part of the "Global Laundromat" by taking all those anti-money laundering statutes literally. (And if you think the other big banks aren't doing the exact same thing, the Easter Bunny has a bridge to sell you. This is why Elizabeth Warren freaks the finance guys out -- she knows where all the bodies are buried.)

At the same time, this story in the New York Times about Deutsche Bank compliance officer Tammy McFadden getting fired for pointing out Trump and Kush's hinky transactions in 2016 -- including some with Russians, natch -- is pretty ridiculous. With regulators on two continents breathing down their necks for laundering Russian money, DB's private wealth bankers were allowed to swoop in and save their clients from any of that icky federal snooping into their questionable transactions.

To be honest, we're not 100 percent sure who's right in the argument over whether 2020 Democratic primary candidates should do town halls on Fox News, though we suspect it's Elizabeth Warren, because she's usually right. But if you are going to do it, then Pete Buttigieg showed us all how you should do it, which is to make sure you get all the way under the skin of Fox News's most regular viewer, the chunk of human cells and pigshit who lounges around the White House all day watching TV and apparently not (thank God) doing much work.

In fact, the president was whining hours before the town hall even started:
