Papadopoulos admitted lying about contact with Kremlin-linked professor who said Russians had ‘dirt’ on Hillary Clinton
George Papadopoulos, a former adviser to the Donald Trump campaign, was sentenced to 14 days in prison in district court for the District of Columbia on Friday after he pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents investigating ties between Russian operatives and the campaign.
The sentence was significantly less than prosecutors’ recommendation of six months. Lawyers for Papadopoulos had requested probation, saying he lied not to impede investigation but “to preserve a perhaps misguided loyalty to his master”.
