Twitter Blows Up Over NYT’s Papadopoulos Story: ‘Remarkable Journalism Here’

The New York Times dropped a bit of a bombshell on Saturday with its report on former Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos. The Times reported that the initial FBI counterintelligence investigation into Russian election meddling and potential collusion between Trump associates and Russian officials was prompted by Papadouplous drunkenly boasting about Moscow having dirt on Hillary Clinton. This blows a hole in the theory that the FBI used the Steele dossier as the basis of its probe. Also, the story noted that Papadopoulos was far more involved in the Trump campaign than campaign officials have led on and that he was far more than a mere “coffee boy.” As you would imagine, the story led to quite a bit of reaction on Twitter: [image via screengrab] — Follow Justin Baragona on Twitter: @justinbaragona
