George Papadopoulos files to run for disgraced Dem Katie Hill’s Congressional seat

Two days after disgraced former California Rep. Katie Hill formally resigned from Congress, one of the star victims of the infamous Russian collusion delusion hoax and conspiracy theory filed paperwork to run for her seat.

“George Papadopoulos, who confirmed he was considering a House run after being released from jail in December, filed a statement of candidacy with the Federal Elections Commission on Tuesday,” Roll call has confirmed. “The document lists his party affiliation as Republican.”

Of course, anyone who’d been watching Papadopoulos’s Twitter account likely saw this coming from miles away, as he’d foreshadowed it numerous times leading up to Tuesday:

If his candidacy is approved, he’d reportedly face an uphill battle because of all of the GOP competitors also vying for the seat, including former naval officer Mike Garcia, Lancaster City councilwoman Angela Underwood-Jacobs, Los Angeles County Sheriff‘s Sgt. Mark Cripe, former congressional aide Suzette Martinez Valladares and Santa Clarita resident Charles Patron.

And that doesn’t include his Democrat rivals like Santa Clarita assemblywoman Christy Smith, who responded to his entrance into the race by talking trash.


Left-wing media outlets that reported Papadopoulos’s announcement were also quick to note that he served a stint in prison for lying to the FBI.

Case in point via the New York Daily News:

“Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his 2016 contacts with a mysterious Kremlin-linked professor who told him the Russian government had obtained stolen Democratic emails and planned to release them, according to former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.”

Not included in any of the reports were his long-held allegations that he hadn’t purposefully lied — that he’d simply misspoke.

Nor did the media cover credible allegations that he was ensnared in an entrapment operation pieced together by corrupt officials within the Obama FBI to ruin then-GOP presidential candidate’s President Donald Trump’s chance at the presidency.

“It’s all trumped up, folks. No pun intended. None of it’s real. All of it was made up,” renowned conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh explained during an appearance last year on Fox News.

“It was simply created to permit an investigation, just like Comey telling Trump the dossier existed served as the mechanism to get the media in the clear to report on the dossier. This thing is more fake… This whole investigation is more fake and more phony — more connived — than you could possibly imagine.”

While these allegations haven’t been proven, they’re considered credible for two primary reasons. One, the Department of Justice is currently investigating them as part of its probe into the origins of the collusion delusion hoax. And two, the collusion delusion hoax turned up no evidence linking the president’s 2016 campaign to Russian operatives.

In the audio clip below, Limbaugh explains the whole hoax from beginning to end:

Speaking with Fox News host Laura Ingraham earlier this month, Papadopoulos alleged that the Obama administration’s actions against him and the president, not to mention the other “beautiful” lives affected by the Russia probe, are tantamount to treason.

“Basically how I would summarize this, the grand statesman under Rome, Cicero, you know what he said? He said a nation can survive the ambitious and the fools, but it can’t survive the treason from within,” he boldly stated.

“What I think happened in 2016 and all of the events surrounding the 2016 campaign and the spying that took place on me and Michael Flynn and others was tantamount to treason.”

It was part of a “deep state” plot by “an intelligence agency with an ax to grind” against first GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and now President Donald Trump.
