George Papadopoulos: ex-Trump adviser jailed for 14 days for lying to FBI
10 September, 2018, 13:16
On the day he met with Mifsud, he said, he was supposed to speak to Stephen Miller - a campaign adviser and now a senior White House official - but the call never happened.
In subsequent campaign communications, Papadopoulos was encouraged to pursue a Putin-Trump meeting. "All I can say about this question - because I've been asked a million times - is if I told anyone it would have been discovered by now", he told CNN.
Trump has denied knowing anything about contact with Russians and his campaign. Russian Federation has denied US allegations that it interfered in the campaign and President Trump denies campaign collusion. They are cooperating with investigators and await sentencing. He will also have to pay a $9,500 fine according to Kyle Cheney of Politico.
Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in October to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about meetings with individuals closely associated with the Russian government during the campaign. "My entire life has been turned upside down". "I respect the, I always said I respect Mueller's interest in my profile because clearly it's quite alarming, the fact that I marry George Papadopoulos in the middle of this storm", Mangiante Papadopoulos said.
After Papadopoulos and his legal team left the courthouse in a black Chevy Suburban, his family members hung behind outside the courthouse. "I would have preferred less time in jail, but that's OK". "I think the judge really took everything into consideration".
"As far as I remember, I absolutely did not share this information with anyone on the campaign", Papadopoulos told Tapper.
"So everybody said if you only listened to your mother none of this would have happened", she said.
"Papadopoulos misled investigators to save his professional aspirations and preserve a perhaps misguided loyalty to his master", the lawyers wrote. That was Alex Van Der Zwaan, a London-based Dutch lawyer who worked for the law firm Skadden Arps and assisted Paul Manafort and Rick Gates in rolling out a public relations effort for Ukrainian politicians for whom they worked.

Papadopoulos soon made contact with a mysterious Maltese professor, Joseph Mifsud.
Papadopoulos is the first former Trump aide to be sentenced in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Moscow's interference in the 2016 election. "I think is a very unusual case", Breen said.
George Papadopoulos, 31, pleaded guilty in October to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about key details of his conversations with a London-based professor who had told him the Russians held dirt, in the form of thousands of emails, on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Weeks later, stolen Clinton emails were leaked over the internet by what U.S. intelligence chiefs now say were Russian intelligence actors.
In December 2017, two months after his guilty plea, the Federal Bureau of Investigation had plans for a follow-up meeting with Papadopoulos.
