Factbox: People indicted, convicted, investigated in Trump-Russia probe
08 September, 2018, 06:23
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. The judge said there's no evidence Papadopolous had "any desire to aid Russian Federation in any way". In late April, he told them that Mifsud said the Russians had information that could harm Clinton, in the form of thousands of emails.
He admitted a year ago to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about those contacts.
Kyle Cheney, a reporter for Politico, added that D.C. District Court Judge Randolph Moss also sentenced Papadopoulos to a year of supervision, 200 hours of community service, and a $9,500 fine. "I was not honest, and I might have hindered the investigation".
During his January 2017 interview with the FBI, Papadopoulos misled investigators about when he was told Russian Federation allegedly had dirt on Ms. Clinton. When hacked emails were released publicly that summer - part of an operation that intelligence officials later concluded was orchestrated by the Kremlin - the diplomat informed USA officials and a counterintelligence investigation began.
The Russian outreach to Papadopoulos was part of a sweeping active measures campaign aimed at the United States that also included overtures toward other political operatives, cyberattacks, agitation on social media and more.
The US President has also denied collusion in numerous occasions. I don't him. I saw him sitting at one picture at a table.
Papadopoulos, the first campaign aide sentenced in special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation, acknowledged that his actions hindered an investigation of national importance, a move that the judge in his case said resulted in the 31-year-old putting his own self-interest above that of his country. But he said he was moved by what he viewed as Mr. Papadopoulos's "genuine remorse".
Prosecutors had asked Papadopoulos be sentenced to no less than six months. Because of his loyalty to Trump, "that's the mind set going in there".
Lawyers for Papadopoulos contradicted that assertion. They also said he stumbled through his Federal Bureau of Investigation interview because he was trying to keep alive his shot at a job in the Trump administration.
"14 days for $28 MILLION - $2 MILLION a day, No Collusion", the president tweeted.
J.D. Gordon, former National Security Adviser for the Trump campaign, echoed similar sentiments, while blasting the Mueller probe. But prosecutors said his assistance was negligible.
Far from cooperating to energize the special counsel probe, prosecutors Jeannie Rhee, Andrew Goldstein and Aaron Zelinsky argued, Papadopoulos and his wife gave life to a false narrative about them and the seriousness of his offense.
Not only that, Papadopoulos withheld a cellphone that he used during the campaign, prosecutors said, and provided it only when asked about the phone.
