"But there is no doubt in my mind that the judge issued what he thought was a very fair sentence". "I would have preferred less time in jail, but that's OK".

Sessions has claimed he opposed the idea, but Papadopoulos continued to discuss the idea with top campaign officials over the following months.

His mother said on Friday that she "still supports" Trump.

Prosecutors had asked for six months.

The only other defendant in the Russian Federation probe who has been sentenced is Dutch attorney Alexander Van der Zwaan.

"The President of the United States hindered this investigation more than George Papadopoulos ever could", Mr. Breen told the judge. He admitted to lying about those contacts to Mueller's team, which investigators said led them to miss a chance to interview the professor, Joseph Mifsud.

"No offence, but he was unsophisticated, he was naive and he was foolish", Breen said in court.

Papadopoulos, who was sentenced in federal court in Washington, had pleaded guilty in October to lying to FBI agents about the timing and significance of his contacts, including a professor who told him the Russians had "dirt" on Trump's Democratic presidential rival, Hillary Clinton. The judge said there's no evidence Papadopolous had "any desire to aid Russian Federation in any way". The case was kept under seal for three weeks after his guilty plea and made public only when Mueller announced the indictments of campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his top deputy, Rick Gates, for money laundering, illegal lobbying and other charges unrelated to the election.

The 31-year-old Chicago native was a little-experienced petroleum analyst based in London when he joined the Trump campaign in March 2016 as one of a handful of members of the Republican candidate's national security and foreign policy advisory board.

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.

Attorneys for Papadopoulos had sought to avoid prison, instead requesting probation.

"I saw him sitting in one picture at a table with me, that's the only thing I know about him", Trump said, referring to a widely circulated photo of Papadopoulos in a meeting with Trump and several other advisers. He recalled how he and attorney Robert Stanley and Papadopoulos visited the Federal Bureau of Investigation office in Chicago months ago and noticed the photos of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Trump hanging on the lobby wall.

Court documents suggest Mueller's office had hoped to secure Papadopoulos' cooperation, but quickly concluded he could not be trusted when he began meeting with reporters.
