The big news today is all about one-time Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort being arrested and indicted on twelve counts of tax fraud with his business partner Rick Gates, including one very serious charge of conspiracy against the United States.

What hasn’t been blasted all over the airwaves and print media is a legal situation that appears to be far more dangerous for President Trump than the Manafort indictment involving the arrest and plea bargain of former Trump advisor George Papadopoulos.

The Democrats, their complicit confederates in the liberal mainstream media, and corrupt special prosecutor Robert Mueller will not rest until they have removed President Trump from office.

And the witch hunt continues.

An early advisor to President Donald Trump‘s campaign has pleaded guilty to making false statements to FBI agents, according to court filings released Monday.

The U.S. alleges that George Papadopoulos made contact with foreign nationals tied to the Russian government and subsequently lied to federal agents about those meetings.

Papadopoulos was arrested on July 27 and entered a plea deal on Oct. 5.

According to the documents, Papadopoulos met with a female Russian national in March 2016. This woman was allegedly introduced to Papadopoulos, then foreign policy advisor for the Trump campaign, as a relative of Russian President Vladimir Putin with ties to senior Kremlin officials.

The filings also say that Papadopoulos is cooperating with the U.S. government in its ongoing investigation of Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 election.

Papadopoulos’ attorneys declined to comment on the case.

News of Papadopoulos’ plea deal comes on the heels of a separate indictment unsealed Monday of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his longtime business partner Rick Gates.

Earlier Monday, Manafort and Gates surrendered to authorities after being charged on 12 counts related to concealing foreign payments, including one count of “conspiracy against the United States.”

The two men had been the first people charged in the Russia investigation led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller.

Trump responded to the news on Twitter, saying that the alleged crimes occurred well before Manafort joined the Trump campaign in 2016.
