Ex-Trump adviser George Papadopoulos sentenced to 14 days in prison

Former Trump adviser George Papadopoulos sentenced to 14 days in plea deal with Mueller probe

He has testified that senior campaign members encouraged him during 2016 to build ties with Russian Federation, including after he told them that Moscow possessed - and could be willing to share - dirt on Trump's election rival Hillary Clinton.

Papadopoulos had pleaded guilty to the crime last October.

Defense counsel in their filings painted Papadopoulos as a naive and eager campaign aid who sought to impress the Trump campaign by setting up a meeting with campaign officials and Russian Federation to discuss whatever Russian Federation allegedly had on Ms. Clinton.

Outside court on Friday, Papadopoulos' lawyer, Thomas Breen, said his client was a "fool" and had acted "stupidly" in lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The $28 million price tag cited by Mr. Trump is likely a reference to the cost of the Mueller probe.

'Deliverance,' 'Boogie Nights' Star Burt Reynolds Dies
After that, from 1978 through 1982, Burt Reynolds was Hollywood's top-grossing star every single year. Reynolds was married to Judy Crane from 1963 to 1965 and Loni Anderson from 1988 to 1993.

In Friday's sentencing, Papadopoulos was also handed 12 months of supervised release, 200 hours of community service, and a fine of $9,500 (£7,350).

"The defendant did not provide "substantial assistance" " after that arrest, prosecutors wrote to the judge, "and much of the information provided by the defendant came only after the government confronted him".

As noted by USA Today, authorities thought that Papadopoulos could serve as a key informant, but it quickly became clear that was not the case. His client was also affected by Trump's cries of "fake news" and his casting of the Russian Federation investigation as a "witch hunt" just days before his FBI interview.

During the hearing, Papadopoulos' attorney Thomas Breen argued that "The President of the United States hindered this investigation more than George Papadopoulos ever did", and that Papadopoulos "was unsophisticated, he was naive, and he was a fool".

Even after his arrest and plea agreement past year, Goldstein said, Papadopoulos continued to be hard, only providing information after being confronted with documents such as emails and text messages.

Bridge collapses in Kolkata, cars fall on the road below
In 2016, Vivekanand Bridge , which is near the busy Ganesh Talkies, collapsed, killing 27 people and leaving 80 injured. Currently, state disaster teams are at the spot and are trying to rescue those trapped with aid from locals.

Prosecutors say those false statements, made during a January 2017 interview with federal investigators, led the FBI to miss an opportunity to interview Mifsud while he was in the United States in early 2017.

Breen described his client as a "patriot", who wasn't trying to help Russian Federation. Jeff Sessions was a fan of his plan to have candidate Donald Trump meet with Russian ruler Vlad Putin. Explaining his sentence, Moss also looked to Alex Van Der Zwaan's sentence of 30 days in prison, and noted how Van Der Zwaan was a lawyer and expressed far less remorse to the judge at his sentencing compared to Papadopoulos.

Sessions has claimed he opposed the idea.

Breen also rejected the idea that Papadopoulos was the victim of a witch hunt or prosecutorial misconduct. We have seen no entrapment. Mifsud's current whereabouts are unknown, and Papadopoulos has denied telling anyone else from the president's campaign about Mifsud's claims.

"We were hoping for no jail time but two weeks is OK", Maria Stamatopoulos said.

Colton Underwood shared a photo on Instagram showing him with Tia Booth during their hot dog party on Bachelor in Paradise . And though Colton is clearly having second thoughts about dating Tia , that sentiment does not appear to be requited.

In subsequent campaign communications, Papadopoulos was encouraged to pursue a Putin-Trump meeting.
