Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Hot Air: I noted in the [George] Papadopoulos post this morning that his plea deal says he's cooperating with Mueller's investigation. Brad Heath of USA Today made a nifty catch, though, about the possible extent of that cooperation. ... Heath didn't say which filing that passage comes from but logically it's probably from Mueller's motion to seal. The key phrase is "proactive cooperator." Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale asked someone who would know what that phrase might mean: "Papadopoulos is described as 'proactive cooperator.' Former prosecutor tells me that sometimes means "wore a wire."

He was a perfect guy to try to recruit for that -- young, in over his head, outside the Trump inner circle and therefore owing little loyalty to the administration. Mueller may have scared him senseless with threats of a long prison sentence for lying to the FBI and the promise of much reduced charges if he played ball. Possibly he enlisted Papadopoulos to reach out to some of the major players in Russiagate and get them on record confessing to ... what, exactly?

Am I the only person who read this headline and thought "kinky"?

I didn't notice the "pro-active" part. It generally means he did work without being asked or prompted, and possibly even before he was being charged. It might even go back to before Mueller...
