Trump Denies Collusion with Former Campaign Aide George Papadopoulos

As rumors continue to fly about former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to once again deny any collusion between he and the former staffer.


Trump chalked up the rumors flying around about Papadopoulos — who recently pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators about his Russian contacts — to the “Fake News” media. Trump reasserted Manafort’s lawyer saying there was “no collusion” that took place, and that Papadopoulos’s dealings with his Russian contacts happened before he came to the campaign.

Trump also once again called for everyone from investigators to the media to “Check the DEMS!”

As it stands, any suggestion for collusion by Papadopoulos seems to have been shut down by then-Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, the chairman of the Trump campaign’s national security advisory council. It’s unlikely that Trump even knew who Papadopoulos was.
