And none of them have anything to do with Collusion.

That statement is simply not true. It is self evident that you have not read the Statement of Offense that George Papadoupolous plead guilty to. I have. I invite you to do so and educate yourself before calling me a “hack.”

The Statement of Offense details Papadopoulos repeatedly meeting with and communicating with a Russian Professor and “Putin’s niece” to get thousands of emails containing dirt on Hillary Clinton. The Statement of Charges also detail Papadopoulos’ months long communications with high ranking officials of the Trump Campaign to arrange a meeting with Trump Campaign officials (including Donald Trump himself). They also show the Trump Campaign approved the idea of Papadopoulos secretly meeting with Russian Government officials on behalf of The Campaign, even if such meetings never happened. Papadopoulos discussed with high ranking Trump campaign officials his willingness to make a trip to Russia for such purposes stating “I am willing to make the trip off the record if it’s in the interest of Mr. Trump and the campaign to meet specific people.”

His conviction was for lying to the FBI regarding such efforts to collude. But to say that a conviction for lying about an effort to collude as nothing to do with collusion identifies you as a hack.
