They would be the fbi. Papa knows where the money is. Tawils side is bs. If it wasn’t then there is no way authorities would be waiting for him at the airport or going to the unusual/not normal locations. You think papa was thinking about a book back then? I don’t believe everything papa has said but the whole thing stinks from beginning to end. Tawil side of the story stinks.
Why was Pap pounced on in the US by Mueller's gang if it wasn't an entrapment operation? When they didn't find the $10K they had to hastely gin up a criminal complaint, which they lacked.

Politco:
When he was arrested at Dulles Airport on July 27 after coming off a flight from Munich, prosecutors had no warrant for him and no indictment or criminal complaint. The complaint would be filed the following morning and approved by Howell in Washington.
And when prosecutors filed the complaint the next day they got a spoken order from Howell to seal it, but followed up with a written request that they could take to the magistrate in Alexandria, where they showed up almost an hour later than she expected.​
All of it suggests something of a scramble, rather than a carefully prepared plan to take Papadopoulos into custody. (more)​

CTH:

...It would appear Weissmann was well aware of the Cyprus “Tawil operation” and engaged in communication regarding Cyprus. Additionally, he was discussing “Money Laundering and Asset Recovery” w/ FBI.

Taken in combination with hindsight of the search for the cash, and lack of a pre-existing warrant at the airport, this is clear evidence of a coordinated operation to entrap Papadopoulos.

Remember, the preferred approach toward targeting Paul Manafort, Mike Flynn and George Papadopoulos surrounded FARA (Foreign Agent Registration Act) lobbying violations. Papadopoulos has stated the special counsel threatened him with charges of acting as a unregistered agent for Israel. There’s a clear picture here.

#1) Papadopoulos was lured to Israel and paid in Israel to give the outline of a FARA premise (ie. Papadopoulos is an agent of Israel). #2) Bringing $10,000 (or more) in cash into the U.S., without reporting, is a violation of U.S. treasury laws. Add into that aspect the FARA violation and the money can be compounded into #3) laundering charges.

[A “laundering” charge applies if the money is illegally obtained. The FARA violation would be the *illegal* aspect making the treasury charges heavier. Note: the use of the airport baggage-check avoids the need for a search warrant.]

Andrew Weissmann was conducting an entrapment scheme that would have ended up with three violations of law: (1) Treasury violation; (2) FARA violation; (3) Money laundering…. All it needed was Papadopoulos to carry the undeclared cash into the U.S.

However, because Papadopoulos suspected something, and left the money in Greece with his lawyers, upon arrival at the airport the operation collapsed in reverse. No money means no treasury violation, no laundering and no evidence of the consultancy agreement (which would have been repurposed in the DOJ filing to mean lobbying for Israel via Mr. Tawil who would have become a confidential informant and witness).

That operational collapse is why the FBI agents were “scrambling” at the airport and why they had no pre-existing criminal complaint. The entrapment’s success was contingent upon the cash.

Lastly, to repeat, this entire scenario was constructed by the DOJ/FBI team operation in 2017. The members of the Special Counsel were running the entrapment operation; the FBI agents were participating in the operation. This is not *investigating* criminal conduct; this is manufacturing criminal conduct.

Why would he insist on cash then leave it with his attorney in Athens?
Because he suspected he was being set up by CIA operative/Israeli Charles Tawil. Tawil gave him the money for "consulting". Bringing $10K into the US undeclared is illegal. Taking money from an Israeli in Israel makes Papadopoulos an agent of a foreign government, compounding the charges.

I’ll be shocked if it is revealed that the CIA was working with MOSSAD to effect American politics.

Shocked I tell ya.

Too many of these people are shitstains

Brennan was the station chief in Riyadh when the Khobar Towers were bombed, then he was promoted WTF (19 killed)

His clearance was revoked back in August and he still gets on TV acting like he is in the know and makes declarations of guilt about Trump. If these people know something, then fucking say it already, provide the proof....

Does this go in a Trump thread? I don't know.
@JackPosobiec: BREAKING: The Horowitz IG report is now in staff review and is being briefed to principals - @OANN

May explain why Comey et al are now front and center setting their narratives

I was referring to tawil claiming Papa insisted on cash. That's stupid.
 
Pap-D is undoubtedly no angel; both sides probably deal in cash. He may be shady but he didn't know he was being used as a pawn in a coup attempt.
I don't even know that he's shady, exactly. If I had to guess, he does business with people according to their cultural beliefs, not necessarily ours. Cough...cough...

I just read the bit in Papadopoulos's book about the $10,000. He's always come across just a peg or two higher than Carter Page on the dimwit scale, but his retelling of his interactions with Tawil is pretty straightforward. It's nowhere near as dramatic as how it's presented in the articles I've read, even though he's presenting his contemporaneous thoughts with a huge helping of hindsight. I doubt he was as brilliant at the time as he's portraying now.

Here's the part about the hotel meeting:

We go to a hotel near Tel Aviv. For some reason, he books a room in that very same hotel, even though I’m pretty sure he lives in Tel Aviv. Why does he need a room? I don’t ask, but I have a creepy feeling. In fact, I text Simona, who had a worse response to meeting Tawil than I had.
“How do I get out of here? This guy is so weird. I think I might be in danger.”
Then he calls and says I should drop by his room. I’m completely nervous. Why his room? Why not the lobby? It seems like some kind of setup. Am I going to get whacked? I take a deep breath and tell myself that at least Simona knows where I am. That’s good. She’s my backup if, for whatever reason, something goes wrong.
Tawil opens the door to his room, and I step in. There’s a pile of cash on the bed—a stack of what look like $100 bills.
“Ten thousand dollars,” Tawil tells me.
“What’s this for?”
“It’s for you.”
“Why? What am I doing for this money? I still don’t understand our project.”
“It’s a retainer. You’re working as my consultant.”
“Why cash?”
“Why not?”
“We need an agreement.”
“No, I trust you.”
But I don’t trust him. What kind of businessman gives someone $10,000—in cash—without a receipt or a contract? A terrible one, someone used to paying bribes, or a businessman who is not really a businessman.
Later, Tawil told reporters I asked for cash because I didn’t have a bank account, which is just a lie. He also explained the cash by saying, “I have cash. I work in Africa, you know. I need cash.” So which is it? Did I ask for cash? Or did he just have cash lying around that he wanted to use? Nice cover story.

In the end, I take the money. But I am scared. I’ve never seen $10,000 in cash before. And seeing it in Israel, on a bed in a hotel room in Israel is even stranger. Am I being taped? Is that Tawil’s receipt—something he can use as blackmail that might lead to my undoing? Or is he going to finally give me what I’ve repeatedly asked for: an agreement, a contract, a statement of work. That’s what I’m hoping for, something that explains where this money comes from, why I have it, and what is expected of me.

My take is he had help. I think there were people in the MI who knew what was going on with this entire Russia hoax. Papa was being set up without him having any idea as to why. Now Papa probably had hints something was a little off but he had no idea of just how big this thing was going to be. So he is told to take the cash(he turned it down at first), then is told to leave it in Greece. MI let the Russia thing play out but always being one step ahead. Now Papa knows the people who gave him some help will never be known so this allows him to play the card like he is. He comes off smarter than he really is and he gets to be on tv playing up the whole thing. Him and Page were just pawns needed for the bigger operation to work

This. He never would have thought this was a conspiracy since this has never been done before. If anything he probably just felt it was some shady pay for play bullshit that goes on every day in DC.

Agree; he and every foreign interest that wasn't part of Mueller's take-down-Trump operation would have assumed $10,000 cash was routine influence peddling money because of his ties to the Trump campaign.
