Ex-Trump advisor jailed in Russian Federation inquiry — George Papadopoulos

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

George Papdopoulos, a former foreign policy adviser to President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, was sentenced Friday to 14 days in prison on charges stemming from Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe, according to reports.

Foreign policy specialist George Papadopoulos "lied in an investigation that was important to national security", said US District Judge Randolph Moss.

While the President had belittled Papadopoulos following his guilty plea last yea, calling him a "low level volunteer", he was actually one of just five foreign policy advisers for Mr. Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign.

Yet, it is unclear exactly where he got the $28 million figure, although Trump has thrown about similar figures about the cost of the Mueller probe, saying back in May the Mueller investigation will soon cost $20 million.

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, who served as a foreign policy adviser to President Donald Trump's campaign, has been a central figure in the Russian Federation investigation dating back before Mueller's May 2017 appointment.

While the low-end model could be a great entry point for price-conscious users, the iPhone XS is sure to be the star of the show. Since it was nowhere to be found following Apple's accidental leak, hopefully this new video will help fill the void.

As the couple headed for the court, a protester tossed an orange shirt reading, "Team Putin", at the former member of Trump's campaign, who pleaded guilty past year for lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Papadopoulos is the first Trump campaign official to be sentenced as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian election interference.

In his time with the Trump campaign, the delicacy of Papadopoulos's mission to broker a meeting between Trump and Putin was not always reflected in his conduct.

Sessions has claimed he opposed the idea.

American authorities were alerted in mid-2016 after Papadopoulos told an Australian diplomat during a drinking session in a London pub about his meetings with Professor Mifsud. I don't know him.

His lawyers say Papadopoulous acted out of a "misguided sense of loyalty to his master" and to preserve his career options in the new administration.
