CALIFORNIA/CONGRESS/ELECTION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE: “George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign adviser who pleaded guilty two years ago to lying to the F.B.I. about his Russian contacts during the 2016 presidential election, has filed paperwork signaling that he will run for Congress in California as a Republican to replace Representative Katie Hill. Mr. Papadopoulos, 32, filed his statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday [10-29-19], listing a home address in Los Angeles and specifying that he would run to represent California’s 25th District, which includes Lancaster, Palmdale and other large swaths of the Antelope Valley and northern Los Angeles County…Mr. Papadopoulos filed his papers just two days after Ms. Hill, a freshman Democrat, said she would resign in the face of a House ethics investigation into allegations that she had a sexual relationship with a member of her congressional staff.”
