This calls for a cup of coffee.

Fresh out of prison, former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos announced Friday he plans on running for Congress in the next midterm elections.


“It is true,” Papadopoulos tweeted. “I will be running for Congress in 2020, and I will win. Stay tuned.”

The 31-year-old politico — who was derided as a “coffee boy” by senior Trump campaign officials who sought to distance him from the President in light of his guilty plea — was released from prison last week after serving a 12-day sentence for lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russians during the 2016 election.

It’s not clear what congressional district Papadopoulos plans to run in or what party he’ll represent. He did not respond a request for comment.
