Simona Mangiante — fiancée of former Trump campaign national security adviser George Papadopoulos — told the Washington Post that Papadopoulos "is on the right side of history" in the Russia probe. “I believe history will remember him like John Dean,” she said, referencing Nixon's White House counsel who pleaded guilty and then became a key witness in the Watergate investigation.

The bottom line: "Without offering specifics, Mangiante said there is much more that has not yet been told publicly about Papadopoulos’ 10 months as an informal national security adviser to Trump," the Post reports.
