SHS is lying, according to the Papadopoulos plea deal. He was encouraged by campaign officials to make the trip to Moscow. Like, verbatim.
Like clockwork, Fox has already begun attacking the judge in the Manafort case & the judge is a black woman.
Ex-Watergate prosecutor guarantees Papadopoulos has been ‘wearing a wire for months’ and playing ‘dial-a-crook’
