Robert Mueller has filed a 10-page sentencing memo in the case of George Papadopolous (embedded below via Scribd). In the revised authorized version of the origin of the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign, Papaoplous looms large. He is allegedly the man. Having reviewed the sentencing memo, however, Bryon York concludes that “Papadopoulos emerges as bit player in Trump-Russia affair.” Margot Cleveland explores the perplexities of the sentencing memo in “FBI Reveals It’s Either Lying Or Incompetent.” Cleveland’s column is deeply troubling.
I can’t explain. Trying to understand what is revealed here, I despair that we will ever truly penetrate what emerges ever more clearly as the greatest political scandal in American history.
