George Papadopoulos, the former foreign policy adviser who pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), knows a lot more than the public may think, fiancée Simona Mangiante told reporters.
According to Mangiante, “[t]here’s a lot to come.”
Calling Papadopoulos the John Dean of the Russia scandal — meaning that he will be compared to the White House counsel who helped officials with Watergate — Mangiante said that her fiancé “was the first one to break a hole on all of this.”
After Papadopoulos agreed to cooperate with FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Trump’s White House called him a “low level” volunteer. To Mangiante, the dismissal really hurt her future husband.
“I know what it means as a young person to do all the efforts you do to build your career and be dismissed as a coffee boy,” she said.
While she didn’t get into any details regarding the bombastic information Papadopoulos may have, she explained that he was “constantly in touch with high-level officials.”
Perhaps Trump and his posse should have thought twice before dismissing Papadopoulos in such a callous way. If his fiancée’s interview is any indicator, Trump's former adviser seems ready to go full force against the administration.
