Ex-Trump Campaign Adviser Jailed

Donald Trump speaks at a campaign rally in Grand Rapids Mich. Nov. 8 2016

Papadopoulos was the first person affiliated with the Trump campaign to be indicted, as part of the Mueller probe.

The DNC's revelation came in court filings Friday in their lawsuit against Russian Federation, the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks for interfering in the 2016 presidential election.

Papadopoulos, who was initially interrogated on January 27, 2017 by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents regarding his work for the Trump campaign, was arrested at Washington-Dulles International Airport on July 27, 2017 and arraigned the following day.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents interviewed Papadopoulos in January 2017, and he lied about his April 2016 conversation with Joseph Mifsud, a Maltese professor working in London who had ties to Russian officials.

"The defendant did not provide 'substantial assistance, ' and much of the information provided by the defendant came only after the government confronted him with his own emails, text messages, internet search history, and other information it had obtained via search warrants and subpoenas", the court filing said.

Three other campaign officials - chairman Paul Manafort, deputy campaign manager Rick Gates and national security adviser Michael Flynn - either have pleaded guilty or been convicted of various crimes but none of the trio has yet been sentenced.

Many have already said that regardless of what is salvaged, the loss will be immeasurable. " Culture is grieving . Another priceless artifact, a 5.5-ton meteorite discovered in Brazil in 1784, was also housed within the museum.

Papadopoulos lied to investigators because he was "caught off-guard by an impromptu investigation" and wanted to "save his professional aspirations", his lawyers said.

As noted by USA Today, authorities thought that Papadopoulos could serve as a key informant, but it quickly became clear that was not the case.

Breen told a rapt courtroom that Papadopoulos has already faced his penalty over the past year, and realized he needed to disavow the Trump administration in favor of the truth.

Papdopoulos's lawyer Tom Breen said "the president of the United States hindered this investigation more than George Papadopoulos ever did".

The punishment was far less than the maximum six-month sentence sought by the Government but also more than the probation that Papadopoulos and his lawyers had asked for.

The sentence drew a quick response from Trump on Twitter, as he scoffed at the two weeks of prison time by comparing it to an unverified cost figure for the Mueller probe.

Democratic Senators Send Fundraising Emails During Kavanaugh Hearing
Kennedy was a solid conservative but sided with the court's liberals on some issues, including abortion and gay rights. The hearing gives Democrats a chance to make their case against Kavanaugh ahead of November's congressional elections.

Defence lawyer Thomas Breen said his client was affected by Mr Trump's cries of "fake news" ahead of the interview and was torn between wanting to cooperate with investigators and wanting to remain loyal to the President.

At that meeting, Mr. Papadopoulos proposed brokering a meeting between Mr. Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. "I think the judge really took everything into consideration".

The Trump campaign adviser who triggered the Russian Federation investigation will find out Friday whether he will be going to prison for lying to the FBI. Papadopoulos says he had nothing to do with the leak.

"We don't talk politics", he said.

In subsequent campaign communications, Papadopoulos was encouraged to pursue a Putin-Trump meeting. Sessions has said the opposite while testifying under oath.

Van der Zwaan was sentenced to 30 days in a Pennsylvania prison and received a $20,000 fine.
