Robert Mueller is going for broke.

He’s all in on taking out Donald Trump.

But he just got caught using this spy.

When Mueller announced he had secured a guilty plea from former Trump campaign volunteer George Papadopolous for lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russians during his brief time on the campaign, many Americans scratch their heads and said “who?”

The guilty plea surprised pundits because no one had ever really heard his name mentioned before in the investigation.

He was arrested over the summer and pled guilty in the beginning of October and the entire affair was kept under wraps.

In the plea agreement, however, there was a clue.

Papadopolous was listed as a “cooperating witness.”

This alarmed observers, as it likely meant he had been wearing a wire whenever he spoke to anyone connected with the Trump campaign as a spy so Mueller could catch them in process-crime lies and then prosecute them as leverage against Trump.

Judge Andrew Napolitano of Fox News said this made the investigation very dangerous for Trump.

Fox News reports:

“The Fox News senior judicial analyst emphasized the seriousness of the guilty plea by former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopolous, who he said most likely “wore a wire” to potentially gather incriminating evidence against other Trump campaign officials. 

Special Counsel Robert Mueller announced the guilty plea on Monday, saying Papadopolous lied to FBI agents about contacts with a Russia-linked professor who spoke of “dirt” on Hillary Clinton in the spring of 2016. 

The professor, based in London, has denied the claims laid out by Papadopolous. Napolitano said the guilty plea by Papadopolous was “very unusual” because it occurred in secret and the judge ordered the plea documents to be sealed. 

Napolitano said for that to happen, prosecutors would need to convince the court that a lack of secrecy would “materially interfere with an ongoing criminal investigation.”

He explained that the judge’s decision was likely based on Papadopolous “wearing a wire” as a cooperating witness.

Napolitano also said it’s telling that Papadopolous was not charged with obstruction of justice, perhaps because he has already provided “significant assistance” to investigators.”

Mueller is using an inside man to rat out Trump officials.

But will it work?

Papadopolous was a low-level volunteer who didn’t have any extensive contracts with the Trump campaign.

Using him as a spy could be a sign that Mueller doesn’t have much in the way of a collusion case and that he’s desperate to make anything stick so he can take out Trump.
