But he doesn’t LOOK like a pee tape.

Ever since special counsel Robert Mueller sweetened the pot Monday by unsealing a surprise confession and guilty plea from Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, a lot of new questions have arisen! Wonk pal Charlie Pierce is wondering whether Papadopoulos will go down in history as the first major crack in the Trump-Russia scandal, the one that inevitably leads to bringing all these fuckers down. It’s a valid question, since the kid’s statement of offense implicates a lot of Trump people, who are unnamed in the document, but whose names are coming out nonetheless.

Papadopoulos’s name first hit the news in an August Washington Post scoop about how he was constantly emailing everybody on the Trump campaign begging them to go to Russia and have sexxx with Vladimir Putin. It’s very likely Paul Manafort leaked the campaign emails to WaPo, because it made Manafort and others, like campaign co-chair Sam Clovis (the weird guy who is #NotAScientist but is Donald Trump’s nominee to be the head science guy at the USDA), look very good, and it made Papadopoulos look like a bad kid trying to peer pressure the campaign into colluding with Russia.

… [t]he new emails reveal that Manafort had rejected a request from Papadopoulos … to set up a meeting between Trump and Russian officials. […]

Papadopoulos forwarded [an email from one of his Russian contacts] to Manafort, the newly named campaign chairman.

“Russia has been eager to meet with Mr. Trump for some time and have been reaching out to me to discuss,” the adviser told Manafort.

Manafort reacted coolly, forwarding the email to his associate Rick Gates, with a note: “We need someone to communicate that DT is not doing these trips.”

See? Paul Manafort is a good boy and didn’t mean no harm! A 68-YEAR-OLD VERY GOOD BOY who’s currently not allowed to leave his house LOLOL.

Thing is, whoever (Manafort) leaked to WaPo left out a very important part of the email, that makes him look very bad. Mueller, on the other hand, had access to all the BUT THEIR EMAILS! Look at this footnote:

Oh, so it wasn’t “No Russia, no Russia, YOU’RE THE RUSSIA!” It was, “We’d better send the underlings to do the Russian dirty work, and keep our dirty Russian paws clean!” VERY INNARESTING.

In the original August WaPo piece, Clovis came off pretty well too, saying, “Oh I dunno, my mom says I’m not supposed to meet with Russians unless I talk to NATO first.” BUT, as WaPo points out now, the emails quoted in the statement of offense released Monday also make Clovis look bad:

Several weeks after Donald Trump secured the Republican presidential nomination, his national campaign co-chairman urged a foreign policy adviser to meet with Russian officials to foster ties with that country’s government.

“Make the trip, if it is feasible,” Sam Clovis wrote in an August email to George Papadopoulos.

DO IT, BRO! Report back to HQ!

Another time Papadopoulos promised the campaign Russian joy and collusion, Clovis responded that he would have to work it through the proper channels, but nonetheless, “great work.” But don’t let this change your opinion of Sam Clovis, who is still a very good boy. A VERY GOOD 68-YEAR-OLD BOY.

But as WaPo notes, these guys weren’t the only ones who knew Papadopoulos was doing “great work” trying to hook the campaign up on Bumble dates with Russians. Another person knew, a person who is very orange and has very tiny hands:

Trump himself knew of Papadopoulos’s claims that he had a pipeline to Moscow: During a March 2016 meeting of the campaign’s national security advisers in Washington that Trump attended, Papadopoulos said he had connections that could help arrange a meeting between the then-candidate and Putin.

UH OH! This meeting?

AND THEN THERE IS ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS (pictured above with Trump and Papadopoulos!), who still cannot recall whether he’s ever met a Russian or who what why now, SLOW DOWN, YOUR DEMOCRAT FAST-TALKIN’ QUESTIONS ARE MAKIN’ HIM NERVOUS! And it is unfair to make Jeff Sessions nervous, because he is a very good boy. A VERY GOOD 70-YEAR-OLD BOY.

Charlie Pierce harks back in his piece to Sessions’s confirmation hearing, where he lied to Senator Al Franken by answering a question Franken did not ask, about Russian collusion:

FRANKEN: If there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?

SESSIONS: Senator Franken, I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I didn’t have — did not have communications with the Russians, and I’m unable to comment on it.

LOOK. AT. THAT. PICTURE. JEFF. SESSIONS. IS. SITTING. RIGHT. THERE. IN. THE. ROOM. WITH. PAPADOPOULOS. AND. TRUMP. AND. SOME. OTHER. JIZZ-SNORTING. SHIT-GOBLINS.

(Of course, your $5 Feminist harked back to the Sessions confirmation hearing too, in her post on Trump and Sessions’s light treason lunch yesterday, because YOUR WONKETTE KNOWS STUFF ALSO, TOO, CHARLES P. PIERCE!)

One other thing of note is that Robert Mueller kept Papadopoulos’s arrest and confession sealed, according to a filing, because disclosure would have “undermine[d] his ability to serve as a proactive cooperator.” Whatever does that mean? Well, for one thing, it means after Papadopoulos was arrested back in July, Mueller might have gotten him to wear a wire and go back and chit-chat with Trump people about their bad Trump-Russia deeds. Allahpundit at Hot Air (we are all such strange bedfellows these days, aren’t we?) posits a scenario:

Imagine Papadopoulos phoning a former top Team Trump official in early August to say, “They’ve arrested me! I don’t know what to do! I think I should tell them everything and make a deal!” He might have been told no, no, no, stay calm, deny X, Y, and Z, we’ll make sure Mueller never finds our emails from the campaign. And meanwhile, unbeknownst to the target, Mueller’s recording the entire conversation on Papadopoulos’s end.

We can imagine that! AllahPundit also notes the timing, considering how the original emails on Papadopoulos were leaked to WaPo in August. Manafort or Clovis trying to cover their big asses? Maybe!

Now, when we ask if Papadopoulos is the real pee tape, we don’t mean to suggest Donald Trump didn’t literally go to Moscow and get peed on or around by the finest Russian pee hookers. We’re saying the more we find out about this early “get” by Robert Mueller, in the form of a young little dicknugget named George Papadopoulos, the more it sounds like it might end up being the trickle of Russian pee that turns into the full gusher, to coin a phrase.

But if the real pee tape is out there, we’d be down for that to get leaked too, like maybe when Trump is in Asia next week or something.

    • Creepoman

      Alright, sorry, but can’t miss this opportunity to be a bit of a dork. Clovis points are incredible works of art – over 10k years old, and were later supplanted by Folsom points, which feature a distinctive, full-length flute on each face. This flute was produced by striking a single flake of each side of the nearly finished point. A larger percentage of these points snapped at this final step (no idea what the paleo-American word for “FUckinG GODdamiTQ!” is). The blades are so difficult to make that modern archaeologists cannot replicate them with stone age tools. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/149048afff0fde7217fa2a5d200c7ece592a115d31e99b8855487dd396d64573.png

        Folsom? I wonder if Clovis Culture hunters ever shot a man, just to watch him die.

      • Rags

        They were traded hundreds of miles because of their quality. I can imagine some young NA dude hiking up to Colorado and going “Hey, bud, got me some righteous Clovis points here. Wanna do a deal ?”

      Good point. ETA: Shit! as usual, shoulda read down

      However, Clovis points are exquisitely crafted tools unlike any of Trumps appointees. They are crude sledgehammers meant to do one thing.

        That was fun.

    before I read the article, I have to say it freaks me out how much Papadopoulous looks like a sickly version of TX Land Commissioner, son of Jeb! and only Bush Family member to publicly endorse Trump in the 2016 election: one George P. Bush. I am also too curious as to what is over-riding his Greek genes to make him look so freakish. (full disclosure: Panika did a summer program in Greece in 2005 and thinks many Greek men are FUCKING HAWT!)

      The decision by U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, Moore said in a statement shared with TPM, “is absolutely ridiculous and is a perfect example of the outlandish doctrine of judicial supremacy whereby judges exalt themselves over the Constitution they are sworn to uphold.”

    I think it’s not 100% clear that the “low level” person was supposed to travel to Russia as opposed to communicate that Donnie wasn’t doing so. The reply (I think from Gate) was that he would have the communications person who handles unimportant shit do it, making it more likely he meant the low level person was supposed to reply, not travel.

    • Ω cynmac’s reclaiming her time

      Does it matter?

      • ariel_gee_398

        Sure, it’s the difference between that email being proof that Manafort wanted to set up meetings with the Russians (likely after being told they claimed to have emails) or not.

    • puredog

      I see the ambiguity, and went back and forth, but have now come down in the “low-level person traveling” camp. It does not really make sense that, if the message is “NO, DJT IS NOT COMING,” how it would be a “signal” of some kind that should be avoided for DJT to issue the message. It makes more sense that, if a low-level person were to do the travel, that would be less of a signal than if DJT did the travel. But I will agree that it is less than 100% clear.

      • ariel_gee_398

        This is from the original Washington Post story on the emails:

        Manafort reacted coolly, forwarding the email to his associate Rick Gates, with a note: “We need someone to communicate that DT is not doing these trips.”

        Gates agreed and told Manafort he would ask the campaign’s correspondence coordinator to handle it — “the person responding to all mail of non-importance” — to signify this did not need a senior official to respond.

        I think the signal they were talking about could have been to people surveilling emails. If we’re talking about a higher up in a campaign sending emails to a foreign national, that’s probably going to get flagged, whereas if it just looks like standard communication it might be let go.

      • Lascauxcaveman

        Problem with that is, Trump voters are by a vast majority, low-information voters who can’t tell what’s real from what’s fake (otherwise, they wouldn’t have voted for him, obviously). These people will either be unconcernedly shrugging their shoulders or angrily believing ‘bitch set him up’ till the day they die.

        They are incapable of feeling the pain we’ve gone through because they are unthinking people who don’t realize what’s been lost here.

      I would assume Muellar will or has, and I don’t think Butterbeans is as stupid as to lie to or play games with the SP. But I thought Hillary would win, so take that into consideration.

  • Jeff Ackerman

    I think for Mueller to go public with the Popadopoulus guilty plea etc. he has to have wrung all the information he needs out of him, he is also putting everyone on notice as to what he has in the way of information.

    • I guess Mueller hopes they’ll all resign in disgrace?

      • Jeff Ackerman

        I think he’s used him up as a source of information and is using him to put the rest on notice, otherwise, why make the information pubic.

        • Beanz&Berryz

          Because pubic information is generally not private…

    • IdRatherBeDancing

      Could Flynn be cooperating?

      • Put On Your War Paint!

        I think so.

      • Jeff Ackerman

        I hope so, not much news about Flynn, I think there would be enough information to bring him in too.

      • TimResistit

        He’s been practically begging to cooperate. Maybe they finally allowed him to.

      • Poorly Behaved Pérsistanista

        Personally, I’d prefer Flynn not cooperate and go down in big fiery flames (assuming Mueller has got the goods on him).

    Let’s look first just above Jefferson Beauregard’s pointy little Keebler noggin: there’s a view of a street scene, maybe what might be out a window. But – it’s not a window. It’s not in the same plane as the rest of the photo. It appears either pasted in, or as if some staff flunkie (lower than the coffee boy!) was carrying in a large photo blowup and just oopsie happened to photobomb their staff portrait. Then back behind whoever that is at cheetohlini’s right hand, there’s another one. *That* one is just floating back there – a portal to the hotel ballroom, perchance, or maybe a dangling travel poster for someplace that isn’t federal prison (one assumes).

    Can anyone essplain to me what’s going on here? Is this originally a collage of some sort? Were there Compromising Items in the original that some flunkie (still not the coffee boy!) had to hastily paste over and just used whatever was on the clipboard? I has a confuse!

          It looks like the inside of a hotel or conference center. it’s entirely possible there was an event of some kind there, and Jeffrey T Boreagard was vigorously defending the chicken nuggets on the menu.

  • Swampgas_Man

      Just as soon as the professor from Malta becomes a Russian government official and the event planner becomes a representative of the Russian government, maybehe will

      • AnnieGetYerFun

        Can you try to keep the cutting and pasting to a minimum? This is a pretty outstanding non sequitur, even for you.

        • Yo T

          Ohhhh, that’s right. I keep forgetting you idiots don’t know anything because reading source information is too hard.
          So you don’t know that the “Russians” Papadopoulos was meeting with consisted of a professor, from Malta, and an event planner in a Russian think tank….which wouldn’t be representatives of the Russian Government…read Session’s answer and see if you can figure out why having someone meet with people, who aren’t in the Russian government, would require additional explanation.

          • AnnieGetYerFun

            You clearly don’t understand how law works; there’s the matter of intent. If Papadopoulis thought he was arranging meeting with the Russian government, then that matters more than the fact that he was too stupid to realize that he wasn’t. No one here is suggesting that the Teump campaign meme era were competent or intelligent. What is clear is that they were trying to work with Russia to get some stolen information from Clinton. And then ol Papi lied to the FBI about it. And now they can lean on him and Manafort to get to the criminal activities of others.

            I am sorry that you are too stupid to grasp this, but you’re clearly a Trump supporter and I guess stupid goes with the territory.

  • Yo T

    It’s comical to watch liberals turn a professor from Malta into a Russian government official. Almost as comical as Papadopoulos pretending he had spoken to anyone who actually worked for the Russian government.
    The closest he got was a government funded think tank employee whose job it was to host events.

          • Yo T

            U2 didn’t sing the song,dingbat. It was Sting on the album Dream of the Blue Turles. The name of the song is “Russians” and it was released around 1985.
            U2 put out a live album to support Live Aid, in the same year, and they never, not once, sang that song on any album they made.

            The Dixiecrats returned to the Democratic party in 1952. Only 1 member of the Dixiecrat party became a Republican and that wasn’t until 1978.

            Oh, this trope again, eh?

            This trope completely ignores the fact that the Democrats abandoned white supremacism in the 1960s–but the Republicans were so desperate to get back the near lock on the White House they enjoyed from 1860 to 1932, that they abandoned the heritage of Lincoln to become the party of dog-whistle white supremacy, until Cheeto Mussolini exchanged the dog whistle for a bullhorn, and his master Putin managed to give him the “election” in spite of that.

          • amrak63

            Well, for one thing, the Fairness Doctrine was not repealed until 1987. Plus, it took some time for the AM radio station owners to become so desperate for material–having lost popular music to the superior sound quality of FM radio–that they would turn to “news” formats which largely featured wingnut political content like Rash Limpbough, Crazy Alex Jones, and their ilk.

            So, the brainwashing machine took a while to get up and running.

          • Yo T

            soooo the Democrats abandoned white supremacy until talk radio brainwashed them?

          • amrak63

            Washington (CNN) — Computer technicians have recovered about 22 million Bush administration e-mails that the Bush White House had said were missing, two watchdog groups that sued over the documents announced Monday.

            The e-mails date from 2003 to 2005, and had been “mislabeled and effectively lost,” according to the National Security Archive, a research group based at George Washington University. But Melanie Sloan, executive director of the liberal-leaning Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, said it could be years before most of the e-mails are made public.

            or is it more todo ith the fact that through watching fox new the working class have been stripped of all class consiousness and are convinced that if they found their bootlaces they wouldnt be living in devestated southern towns were there is nothing but drug addication, poverty and hopelessness?

        I have to write that word as “pin~atas” because either my computer can’t make that squiggle over the “n” that Spanish uses for the “n” plus “consonant y” sound found in that word, or I don’t know how to make it. If I am not mistaken, French writes that sound “gn”, and Portuguese writes it “nh”.

            Getting a special prosecutor appointed to investigate election malfeasance is easier than making an admission of error on Clinton’s part? Now that is fucking laughable.

    i love how they are saying this all nothing, nada…but Monday morning, you wouldn’t think so given how mad Trump was/still is.

    they lied about the meetings, saying there were no meetings.
    then it was proven there were meetings.
    they lied that this George fellow was a nobody but we have the Liar in Chief’s OWN FUCKING WORDS mentioning him….yes i hire the bestest people and even the ones on the low end of the totem pole are sitting close to me in a picture….but right…he was just a nobody.

    but more importantly….WHY DO REPUBLICANS CLING to this lying sack of shit?
    the GOP got a bad deal….and apparently don’t know what to do?

    it’s like they bought a flashy looking riding mower, brought it home, and it doesn’t work except to spit out a noxious fume, and then refuse to return to it to get it exchanged or their money back.

        hey dumbfuck , DONNIE JUNIOR MET WITH RUSSIANS!!!

            “it ain’t trolling when you’re using facts.”

            Why would I ask Halderman and Erlichman about the claims made by an idiot in the comments section on a website.

            It doesn’t matter what the nationality of the professor is. The professor is a cut out.

            These dumb “arguments” always are dependent on the assumption that there was no espionage going on. But we know it was because all these bizarre contacts with agents of a foreign power in the fucking middle of an election campaign!! And the changing of the platform, and now Trump and Tillerson not imposing the sanctions that were passed by Congress. This is like one of those Chinese box science-fiction show episodes. 😳🤤

      • AmazingProfessionalCrastinator

        Did Papadopoulos know he met with a professor from Malta who was living in London and not a Russian or a member of the Russian government? No? Well then, that kinda messes up your argument, doesn’t it? You do know what “conspiracy to commit [insert specific crime]” means, right?

        • Yo T

          He was a professor at a school in London. He wasn’t Russian. Those two items alone would be enough to conclude the guy wasn’t a member of the Russian government. The person the professor introduced Pap to, wasn’t a member of the Russian government.

          There were no accusations of conspiracy. The lie was about th timing of the initial contacts with the professor.

          You guys are so desperate you’re inventing things that aren’t supported by the court documents or subsequent reporting on the people involved

          • AmazingProfessionalCrastinator

            In other words, Papadop thought he was in contact with a Russian, but you’re going to keep repeating “professor in London”, who, by the way, apparently lied to Papadop that he *was* some Russian something. I believe this was noted in the indictment or somewhere. Your professor lied to Georgie, and Georgie lied to the FBI.

      • (((Jgmurphy)))

        Pap admitted HIMSELF—i.e. pled guilty—to lying to the FBI. And your point is…?

    • Sakonyachen

      “the GOP got a bad deal….and apparently don’t know what to do?”

      I’m not A expert on Presidential History, but I’m pretty sure there is no precedent for how worthless Trump is. They most likely have no clue what to do, and it is understandable. They probably assumed they could just explain to him how things work in Washington and he would play along by signing all the things. They most likely had no idea that “Trumpanzee” was more than a slur.

      • Blackest Noobs

        but has been over 6 months, Trump has done them no favors, i just don’t see the point in keeping a dead horse.

        there is already enough to impeach him.

        • Sakonyachen

          I agree, but I don’t think either party has ever been in a situation where they had to say, “So we fucked up bad! Sorry bout that.” regarding impeaching their own party “leader”.

          • Blackest Noobs

            but it would be the right thing, and a step in the right direction.
            however these cowards are afraid of the base. 20-30% of the population is holding us hostage.

          • Sakonyachen

            Certainly true. I wonder if the 1% that are responsible for this clusterfuck are cheering, or shitting themselves?

          • Yo T

            Where does the constitution contain the “we fucked up” as a reason to impeach?
            Is it in the same place as the “do over”election liberals were calling for after losing?

          • Sakonyachen

            Believe it or not, many things can be constitutional without being written in the constitution. If it isn’t written in the constitution that you can’t do it, there is no reason you can’t. There’s no provision for half the things the Senate and House do regularly, but they consider them rules. Filibusters are pretty regular anymore, they aren’t in the constitution. If the Republicans decide Trump is killing their party, they will find a way to twist the wording for removal to Trump.

            Right now, they want a tax bill and a few other things to go their way. They are afraid of being primaried from the right over not being Trumpy enough. When those things are no longer important, you can bet on a unanimous Republican vote for impeachment and removal. Of course that may not be enough when Dems see Trump as the destruction of a Republicans.

            The constitution is not computer code, and our elected officials in either party are not afraid to twist the lines to meet their needs. I’m not guaranteeing his impeachment, but the reason given doesn’t have to match the constitution in sentence structure.

        • Yo T

          Enough to impeach? What high crime or misdemeanor has been committed that would support the charges?

          • gffish

          High crime OR misdemeanors. All they need is the political will. There is none, zero, zilch, nada criminal standard that has to be met to impeach. Remember the Clinton thing? Also the pivotal person to start impeachment is Nunes.
          We’ll know the GOP is ready to move against trump/return the crappy riding mower when Ryan removes him as head of that committee. And when they start softening up the ground with talk that makes trump sound like a figurehead. Let’s hope they start too soon.

    • RugzYaBurnt

      Apparently Mr. Cancerous Moles up there attended DePaul, where he racked up the Mock U.N. experience that propelled him directly into the Trump foreign policy circle.

    • Petunia Cat

      Exactly! Thank you for putting it so well. They are shit stupid.

      The sick part is, a lot of the Congresss-critters are from districts where they live in fear of being primaried if they go against Trump.
