Former US Attorney reveals Papadopoulos gave Mueller four people to be investigated as part of his guilty plea

Appearing on MSNBC, a former U.S. attorney said that it appears that former Trump advisor George Papadopoulos gave special counsel Robert Mueller the names of four people who may now be under investigation — or cooperating with the FBI– as part of his guilty plea.

Speaking with host Alex Witt, ex-U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade said the former Trump advisor may be a “small fish” in Trump’s world, but that he wouldn’t have received the plea deal his lawyers got from Mueller without giving up valuable information — including names linked to Trump.

“He is now cooperating with Mueller’s probe,” Witt remarked. “It’s part of his plea deal. Is it likely at this point that Mueller has gathered a lot more information from Papadopoulos than we are aware of at this point?”

“I think that’s highly likely,” McQuade began.
