Judge Napolitano: Manafort Indictment 'First of Many Dominoes to Fall'

Man With ISIS-Like Halloween Costume Sparks Panic at Mall


George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, has pleaded guilty to making false statements to FBI agents.

The announcement was made by special counsel Robert Mueller just hours after his indictment of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates.

According to court documents, Papadopolous' false statements to the FBI concerned his contact with a professor with connections to the Russian government about "thousands of emails" that could damage Hillary Clinton. 

Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Judith Miller responded on "Happening Now" today, arguing that President Trump's continued accusations against the Clintons "are a sideshow."

Miller highlighted that the Papadopoulos news is an acknowledgement of someone in the Trump campaign meeting with someone connected to the Kremlin. 

"Let's not draw any conclusion Papadopoulos s until we see how the investigation plays out," she said. 

Joe Concha of The Hill insisted that Hillary Clinton is "relevant" because of the campaign's efforts to use Fusion GPS to find "dirt" on Trump via Russians. 

Miller said it will now be very hard for Trump to fire Mueller or pardon Manafort or others. 

"Both of those would smack of obstruction of justice. I think it's a political red line that the president may not cross, [though] who knows what Donald Trump will do," she said.
