George Papadopoulos: I Had ‘Street Cred’ In Prison Because It Was ‘Trump Country’

Papadopoulos told MSNBC host Ari Melber Tuesday evening that during his jail stint, he was treated like a “fighter” and a bit of a celebrity because the prison was located in the heart of “Trump country.”

“They considered me as [a political celebrity] and as a fighter and that counts for street cred when you get into a place like that even though I was dealing with a lot of doctors, lawyers, businessmen involved in similar crimes like Paul Manafort or Michael Cohen, so it wasn’t a dangerous place,” Papadopoulos stated.
