Robert Mueller was stunned.
A new threat to ruin his rigged witch hunt against the president emerged.
And this could be the one wildcard that ruins Robert Mueller.
A Judge sentenced former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos to 14 days in prison for lying to the FBI about when he met with a professor who told him the Russians had dirt on Hillary Clinton.
The fake news media made this out to be a massive bombshell.
But Mueller asked for up to six months in prison. However, the judge came back with 14.
Critics believed it showed Papadopoulos was really a bit player and has no involvement with Russian collusion.
Now Papadopoulos wants to back out of his plea deal.
He claims he was framed.
But Mueller is pushing back hard. He knows if Papadopoulos wins this motion it could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.
Special counsel Robert Mueller urged a federal court on Wednesday to reject former Trump campaign policy adviser George Papadopoulos’ last-minute attempt to postpone his upcoming prison sentence.
Papadopoulos is scheduled to surrender Monday to the Bureau of Prisons to begin a 14-day sentence stemming from his guilty plea last October for making false statements to the FBI.
But after hiring new lawyers, the 31-year-old Papadopoulos has shifted course and tried to reopen his case by citing a pending appeal from a longtime aide to Roger Stone who is challenging Mueller’s underlying appointment to investigate connections between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia.
In a six-page reply filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Mueller’s prosecutors shredded Papadopoulos for trying to back his way out of his original guilty plea while noting point blank to the judge that there is “no pending appeal in this case” for him to even rule on.
