The Trump campaign’s foreign policy adviser who now-President Donald Trump claimed was a low-level coffee boy? Well, according to his fiancee, Simona Mangiante, he may just be the first domino to fall in Russia-gate.

“There is consistent evidence that he was not a coffee boy,” Mangiante told ABC News in a sit-down interview. “He set up meetings with leaders all over the world.”

You may recall that in October, Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. He has since been cooperating with investigators, CNBC reports.

Mangiante, an Italian citizen, noted that she met Papadopoulos in September 2016 while he was still working for Trump’s campaign, and added that his information, which includes emails, will play a significant role in “clarifying all that’s happened.”

Mangiante said that Papadopoulos “set up meetings with leaders all over the world” for senior campaign officials. He was “constantly in touch with high-level officials in the campaign,” including now-former senior Trump advisers Steve Bannon and Michael Flynn, ABC News reports.

Mangiante claims to have seen the emails between the former high-level officials and Papadopoulos, but added that her lawyer has advised her not to reveal the emails as of yet.

Looks like the coffee boy might have all the secrets; now here’s to hoping he spills the beans.
