A former adviser to trump in jail

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

George Papadopoulos: ex-Trump adviser jailed for 14 days for lying to FBI

He is the first campaign adviser to be sentenced in connection with Special Council Robert Mueller's ongoing probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.

'Young and ambitious' Federal Bureau of Investigation agents quietly opened a probe into Trump campaign officials possibly colluding with Russia after they were tipped off by an Australian diplomat that Papadopoulos had spoken about Russians having dirt on Clinton.

"I made a bad mistake for which I paid dearly and I am terribly ashamed", Papadopoulos said at his sentencing hearing.

Papadopoulos was arrested more than a year ago and pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about his contacts with several people connected to Russian Federation during the campaign.

Papadopoulos was charged in July 2017.

Papadopoulos related the talk of Democratic emails to an Australian diplomat during what The New York Times described as a night of heavy drinking at an upscale London bar in May 2016.

Paul Manafort, another one of Trump's former staff, was convicted last month. Gates pleaded guilty and testified against his former boss. The judge declared a mistrial on the remaining 10 counts, and prosecutors have yet to decide whether to retry him on the deadlocked charges. Papadopoulos was also given 200 hours of community service and a $9,500 fine.

Judge Randolph Moss said he took the "genuine remorse" into consideration for the sentencing. "I know some people will think the sentence is light, some may think that it's heavy".

It also hoped the ruling will be the first step towards guaranteeing the full range of fundamental rights to such persons. A 5-member bench declared a unanimous verdict to end the British-era law.

Papadopoulos' lawyers had urged Moss to sentence him to probation.

Prosecutors working for special counsel Robert S Mueller III had asked the judge to sentence Papadopoulos to six months in prison, saying his false statements "were meant to harm the investigation, and did so".

As he and his wife Simona Mangiante reviewed other overtures from possible spooks from Britain and Israel, they giggled about rumors that they were spies themselves.

"As far as I remember, I absolutely did not share this information with anyone on the campaign", Papadopoulos told Tapper.

Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos, wife of former Trump campaign foreign policy aide George Papadopoulos, said in an exclusive live interview with her husband on "This Week" Sunday that her global political background raised "a red flag" for US investigators. In court papers filed ahead of the sentencing, prosecutors say those lies caused irreparable harm to the investigation during its early months.

Russian Federation has continually denied allegations of interfering in the 2016 election. "There's no doubt about it".

Breen said his client's primary interest was brokering a meeting between Trump and Putin, a move he believed the campaign supported. The judge who sentenced Van der Zwaan, by contrast, did not feel he was contrite about his crimes.

Then, hedging a bit, he added: "I might have, but I have no recollection of doing so".
