Papadoupolis was the dupe in a classic "sting" operation. It turns out the guy who gave him the "Russian collusion" goods, Professor Joseph Mifsud, has ostensible ties to British intelligence that would seem to discount the theory that he was working for Russia when he told Papadoupolis that the Russians had "dirt" on Hillary and they wanted to use it to help Trump win: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018...vidence-emerges-mifsuds-links-uk-intelligence Yeah, I know, it's Zerohedge, but facts are facts. So what we have here is a likely Brit intel asset telling Papadoupolis that "the Russians wanted to help Trump" which he then drunkenly spills weeks later to an Aussie with strong ties to the Clinton Foundation. That is a classic set-up with the patsy in the middle. Where are the, you know, actual Russians in any of that???
