A former Pentagon spokesman and Trump campaign national security advisor told Big League Politics Monday that George Papadopoulos, a member of a foreign policy advisory board who plead guilty to misleading FBI agents and described to the Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III his own efforts to meet with Russian government officials was freelancing.
“I was surprised to learn today what George Papadopoulos was up to during the campaign,” said J.D. Gordon, who was also a national security advisor for the 2016 presidential campaign of former Arkansas governor Michael D. Huckabee and the 2008 campaign of businessman Herman Cain.
Papadopoulos was an example of someone on a campaign going rogue, he said.
“Presidential campaigns are like that,” he said.
“He obviously went to great lengths to go around me and Senator Sessions,” the retired Navy commander said. Attorney General Jeff B. Sessions, then a senator from Alabama led the campaign’s foreign policy shop and its team of advisors.
“Very hard to know what every single person is doing, especially since some folks deliberately go around the chain of command or circumvent it,” he said. “Papadopoulos obviously represents an extreme case.”
The former Trump campaign advisor is also connected to a conspiracy theory centered on his role at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
Gordon said that he was lead representative of the Trump campaign dealing with the foreign policy planks in the 2016 Republican platform and he knows first-hand that Campaign Chairman Paul J. Manafort Jr., did not direct him or anyone else to weaken support for Ukraine.
The previous Republican platform was written in 2012, long before the Russian seizure of the Crimea region of Ukraine in 2104.
Gordon said he hopes the narrative about the Trump campaign weakening the platform’s support of Ukraine can finally be put to rest.
“Anyone who keeps insisting that the GOP platform was changed to benefit Russia needs to be investigated by the special counsel to determine the extent of ties they may have to Ukraine–that’s on the record and I will have to leave it there.”
‘WHAT A DISASTER:’ Iowa Caucus Results Delayed in Vote Count Catastrophe
The nation is left with more questions than answers on the night of the Iowa Caucus.
The Iowa Caucus was intended to kick off the Democratic Presidential primary by highlighting candidates with a credible shot of winning the nomination.
Instead, the first-in-the nation caucus seems to be more representative of the Democratic Party’s incompetence, after results for the caucus are delayed for an unforeseen “quality assurance” tabulation process. The development has many election hawks and Democrats howling mad, with many suspecting the DNC is dipping into its bag of old tricks with the hopes of blunting or preventing a Bernie Sanders victory in the caucus.
There are many reports of caucus precinct coordinators being totally ignored when trying to report the results of their local caucuses to the Iowa Democratic Party. At least one caucus organizer was outright hung up on by the party when he called in to report results- while speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer live on air.
This is the moment

The mass of confusion is being traced to the failure of an app designed to report results. Iowa Democrats simply explained the unusual delay as the result of “inconsistencies,” offering little to no in depth explanation for what seems to be third world election practices.
Although we’re inexplicably left without any vote tallies the night of the election, exit polls and crowd sizes suggest that polling frontrunner Sanders has a strong chance to win. Pete Buttigieg also appears set for a strong second place performance. Sanders expressed confidence in a strong performance when addressing his supporters in the state.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appears slated for an embarrassment, outright failing to advance to the “viable” stage in many precinct and regional caucus. It’s not entirely impossible that Biden finishes fourth in the primary, a surprise development that would leave the candidate many assumed to be an easy frontrunner for the Democratic nomination struggling as he lags to New Hampshire and later primary states.
MSNBC talking heads could be overheard referring to the caucus as a “disaster” in a some capacity in leaked audio.

As of late Monday night, the Iowa Democratic Party is yet to report any vote results, let alone declare a winner. Big League Politics is continuing to monitor the situation.
