Former Trump campaign aide sentenced - and his lawyer blames Trump

Former Trump Aide George Papadopoulos Has been Sentenced For Lying to the FBI and he Throws Trump Under the Bus

Donald Trump's former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos got 14 days in the hoosegow today after pleading guilty to lying to feds.

Prosecutors asked for a sentence of as long as six months in jail, telling Moss that Papadopoulos failed to provide "substantial assistance" to investigators and disclosed what he did only after he was confronted with his own records.

"Judge said he believed Papadopoulos was genuinely remorseful but didn't agree to a probation sentence because he needed to send a message about the seriousness of lying to the FBI", Cheney wrote in a subsequent tweet.

United States investigators were only alerted to Papadopoulos's activities in mid-2016 after he told Australia's ambassador to London, Alexander Downer, about his talks with Mifsud during a late-night drinking session in a London pub.

George Papadopoulos admitted to the court in Washington DC that he had hindered an investigation of national importance by hiding the extent of his contacts with Russian intermediaries. At the time of the F.B.I. interview, he said, he was being considered for a job in the Trump administration and was concerned about where the escalating investigation might lead.

"I made a awful mistake, but I am a good man who is eager for redemption", Papadopoulos said.

LGBTQ activist Anjali Nazia said the Supreme Court had paved way for bigger judgements ahead. That the law must not discriminate is one aspect of equality.

Papadopoulos told CNN in a late Friday interview that Trump "gave me a sort of a nod" and "wasn't committed either way" at that meeting - but that Sessions "was actually enthusiastic" about a Trump-Putin gathering.

Sessions has claimed he opposed the idea, but Papadopoulos continued to discuss the idea with top campaign officials over the following months. "A great day for America!"

George Papadopoulos, 31, pleaded guilty previous year to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation to hide his contacts with Russians and Russian intermediaries during the presidential campaign.

"He struck me as someone who was validating rumors", Papadopoulos said of his April 2016 meeting with Joseph Mifsud, the mysterious Maltese professor who told him that Russian Federation had a cache of Hillary Clinton's emails.

Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in October to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his dealings with Joseph Mifsud, a London-based professor who told him in 2016 that Russian Federation had damaging information on President Trump's campaign rival, Hillary Clinton.

He did not elaborate on the $28 million price tag he cited, though it appeared to be about the cost of Mueller's investigation.

He called it "a disgrace" and the writer " gutless " during an event with sheriffs at the White House on Wednesday afternoon. He accused the media of trying to undermine the Trump administration and said he found that "incredibly disturbing".

Papadopoulos' conversations with Mifsud were not related to seeking dirt on Clinton, the lawyers said, but an effort to broker a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Papadopoulos soon made contact with a mysterious Maltese academic, identified as Joseph Mifsud. "I don't know Papadopoulos".

Out of the 35 people and entities so far charged, Papadopoulos is one of five who have pleaded guilty and will be the second to be sentenced.

Papadopoulos' attorneys said in court papers their client is "ashamed and remorseful", but they insisted his lies did not harm the Russian Federation investigation.

Breen also rejected the idea that Papadopoulos was the victim of a witch hunt or prosecutorial misconduct.
