George Papadopoulos made the walk into the hallowed halls on Capitol Hill today. And behind closed doors he gave testimony to Congress.
Papadopoulos was a policy adviser for the Trump campaign when he was ensnared by the Russian collusion gang. (VIDEO BELOW.)
Papadopoulos went behind closed doors for hours today with three lawmakers.
The three Congressmen were Mark Meadows (R-NC), John Ratcliffe (R-TX) and Jamie Raskin (D-MD).
The Mueller witch hunt team caught Papadopoulos lying to the FBI and jailed him for two weeks last month.
And today, Congressman Raskin, a Democrat, played partisan politics.
“Raskin, meanwhile, reminded reporters of Papadopoulos’ conviction — he pleaded guilty last month to lying to the FBI about his communications with a foreign professor and was sentenced to 14 days in federal prison — suggesting his testimony should be taken with a grain of salt,” as reported by Politico.

The Republican’s are trying to figure out how a young man on the job for a month has became ensnared in the witch hunt.
Meadows reported, “What we’re finding without talking about specifics of what’s going on is that the whole reason that this investigation was opened up was certainly not one built on a solid foundation,” per Politico.
John Ratcliffe (R-TX) who is the Chairman for the House Homeland Cybersecurity committee and member of the Judiciary & House Ethics committees and a former Federal prosecutor certainly knows his way around a court room and D.C.
Ratcliffe was in the closed-door session today with George Papadopoulos and he said, “My questioning with Papadopoulos confirmed that he was a 28-year-old policy adviser who’d been on the job a month at the time the Trump-Russia investigation was launched, and to this day he’s never been to Russia nor met anyone associated with the Russian government.” (VIDEO BELOW.)
