More Details on Papadopoulos's Connection to Think Tanks

Here is more from the Washington Post about George Papadopoulos, a former member of the foreign policy advisory panel to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign:

Papadopoulos was an agreeable young man who’d often worked alongside Hudson Institute fellow Seth Cropsey. But most offered no response. Cropsey ignored multiple emails and eventually passed me on to the Hudson Institute press office, which offered careful and uninteresting replies.
George [Papadopoulos]...had been quick to pull up articles he’d written with Cropsey (claiming to have done most or all of the writing) and a photo of himself and Cropsey in a meeting with the president of Cyprus, to prove that he had played a crucial role at the Hudson Institute. But I was still waiting to see emails backing up other claims about his career there.

The article also notes that Papadopoulos exchanged emails with Ivan Timofeev of the Russian International Affairs Council, a "prominent Moscow think tank."

Here is a link to the biography of Seth Cropsey, Senior Fellow and Director of the Center for American Seapower at Hudson.

Did Papadopoulos lie about his think tank experience?
