April 15, 2020.  Breitbart reports:….  “A transcript between a confidential source working for the FBI and George Papadopoulos, the former adviser to then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, shows numerous instances of the FBI source clearly trying to lead Papadopoulos into linking Russia with the Trump campaign.” That’s ENTRAPMENT…

“In the conversation that was recorded in the final days of the 2016 presidential campaign, Papadopoulos repeatedly scoffed at the idea of Russia interfering in the presidential race to help Trump. He was even recorded saying that Trump is not beholden to outside forces and that the billionaire is seeking to make America more independent.

“Papadopoulos went so far as to suggest Hillary Clinton was being controlled by other parties, claiming “she’s sold out to [George] Soros and all like these, uh, multi-billionaire like, unsavory secretive society like people.”

“Papadopoulos’s repeated denials of any indication that the Trump campaign was involved in Russian interference are particularly instructive since the exculpatory comments were never provided by James Comey’s FBI to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court when seeking successive warrants to carry out surveillance on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, according to the Justice Department’s Inspector General.

“The FISA warrants were granted due to claimed suspicion of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, with some purported evidence consisting of the discredited anti-Trump dossier financed by Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

“The conversation spotlights the previously documented issue of the FBI team investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election cultivating and maintaining numerous sources close to Trump during the election and the transition period when Trump was entering the White House.

“CBS News first published excerpts of the full transcript of the hours-long conversation between Papadopoulos and the confidential human source. The ensuing news media coverage largely focused on Papadopoulos’s remarks and not the manner in which the FBI source seemed to repeatedly try to lead the Trump adviser on to make remarks about Russia.
