Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu (Calif.) warned on Saturday that special counsel Robert Mueller “knows far more than people think,” pointing to a new report on the Trump campaign’s alleged dealings with Russia.
Lieu pointed to a Saturday New York Times report that found former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos inadvertently triggered the FBI’s investigation into Russian collusion by reportedly drunkenly telling to an Australian diplomat details of Russians possessing Democratic Party emails.
“Important story below,” Lieu tweeted. “Keep in mind no one was really aware of George Papadopoulos until his guilty plea was revealed. That tells us Special Counsel Mueller knows far more than people think. And Papadopoulos is cooperating with Mueller. The White House should be scared.”
