Most of this post is taken verbatim from the January 2, 2018 blog post from Martin Longman’s — “The Hunt for Clinton’s 33,000 Deleted Emails” —  boomantribune.com political commentary site.
.
The Supposed “Coffee Boy” — George Papadopoulos — who came on board the Trump 2016 campaign in March-2016 — was much more than a mere “Coffee Boy”.  He had enough “import” within the Trump Campaign in The Spring + Summer of 2016 to (1) make the “edits” on Trump’s 1st foreign policy speech — (2) arrange for the meeting of Trump & The Egyptian President — Abdel Fattah el-Sisi — (3) as well as being the principal for coming up with the idea of arranging for a potential meeting between Donald Trump & Russian leader Vladimir Putin through Papdopoulos’s sources within the Russian foreign ministry.  Papadopoulos was a “player” in the Trump Campaign & no mere “Coffee Boy”.
.
Here you can see all the elements in precisely the right historical window.  Papadopoulos was in contact with the Russian foreign ministry as part of his effort to broker a meeting between Trump and Putin.  His Kremlin handler, Prof. Joseph Mifsud, served as both the go-between with the foreign ministry and the source of the leak on the stolen emails.  There was as yet no suggestion that the hacked material came from the Democratic National Committee’s servers.  The presumption was that they came from Clinton’s private server.  The Russians appeared to be dangling this information to see what Trump’s team would do to win their release.  They also re-introduced Guccifer as someone with inside knowledge of the hacks.  A month later, on July 15, 2016, Guccifer 2.0 made an appearance and tried to take responsibility for the DNC hacks.
.
Overall — to encapsulate the Trump 2016 Campaign “obsession” with Emails — (1) start with Papadopoulos joining the team in March — (2) having a good many “drinks” with Australia’s top diplomat in Great Britain – Alexander Downer – in May wherein Papadopoulos “blabs” that the Russians have a lot of “political dirt” on Hillary Clinton — (3) the DNC itself is hacked in July by Russian operatives — (4) in September Michael Flynn, Sr., Michael Flynn, Jr. & Peter Smith, a wealthy GOP activist, are all searching for that “holy grail” — those “supposed” 33,000 deleted Hillary Clinton emails.
.
Someone – (most likely George Papadopoulos) – gave Fox News Contributor/Guest — Judge Napolitano — this information and it came out garbled partly because it was disinformation and partly because Napolitano didn’t have a full picture of what was going on.  But it became an article of faith that the 33,000 missing Clinton emails were out there somewhere and that they could sink Clinton’s campaign if they ever came to light.
.
This may also explain why Donald Trump Jr. agreed to take a June 9, 2016 meeting at Trump Tower with Russian intelligence assets who were promising dirt on Clinton.  He might have been promised the missing emails or he may have just had that expectation because he lives in the same fever swamps of rightwing media as folks like Napolitano.  Most likely, though, news of the pilfered emails had filtered up to the top by then from George Papadopolous – the supposed “Coffee Boy”.  In fact, either directly or indirectly, Papadopoulos must have been the source for Napolitano’s article.
.
One part of the puzzle I think is solved. The Trump folks knew the Russians had emails — but they didn’t initially know that the source was the DNC and they wrongly assumed that they were from Clinton’s private server.  Nonetheless, they eagerly sought to convince the Russians to deliver the damaging information, and that desire explains a lot of their behavior at the time.
.
Somehow, even after the DNC (and other) leaks started coming out, the belief that the 33,000Hillary  emails were out there somewhere never died. That’s why Michael Flynn, Sr. + “Jr.” & Peter W. Smith were still looking for them around Labor Day.
.
If we’re right about this, it is admittedly an awkward kind of collusion.  But even if it involves a bunch of poorly or partly informed amateurs and an odd mix of campaign hangers-on and high officials, it is a determined effort to truck with stolen material. —- These activities are CRIMES — they involved the interactions of U.S. citizens with operatives of a foreign, adversarial power. And this can’t be stressed enough — the “participation” from within the Trump Campaign was “extensive”, as it involved many individuals @ the very top of that Campaign —> Donald Trump, himself, Jared Kushner, Donald Trump, Jr., Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Stephen Miller & George Papadopoulos.  Donald Trump’s 2016 Presidential Campaign Was — In Reality —- A “Collusion” campaign, from start-to-finish!
