White House downplays George Papadopoulos' role in Trump campaign

  • House committee to question former Trump bodyguard over Russia dossier report

Papadopoulos, who is 30 years old, joined the Trump campaign in early March 2016 as a foreign adviser. "That doesn't have anything to do with the campaign or campaign's activities", she said.

"What Papadopoulos did was lie and that's on him, not the campaign", said Mrs. Sanders.

"The real collusion scandal, as we've said several times before, has everything to do with the Clinton campaign, Fusion GPS and Russian Federation". "There's clear evidence of the Clinton campaign colluding with Russian intelligence to spread disinformation and smear the President to influence the election". Meanwhile, CNN's fact check read: "Reality check: Papadopoulos' role", and listed that Trump had in the past cited Papadopoulos as an "excellent guy" and that Papadopoulos had attended "at least one meeting".

Ruling out changing the special counsel Robert Mueller, the former FBI Director, at this time, she hoped that the investigations would conclude soon.

Papadopoulos sent a "High-Ranking Campaign Official" an email titled "New message from Russia" back in June 2016, in which he said the Russian ministry of foreign affairs wanted to meet with either Trump or a campaign official in an off-the-record capacity, according to the prosecutors' statement.




"It has to do with his failure to tell the truth". A lot of them took place well before the campaign ever even existed.

Those emails revealed that Mr. Papadopoulos lied to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about his attempts to arrange meetings between Russian agents, and even Russian President Vladimir Putin, and top officials in the Trump campaign.

As the first charges in the Muller probe into the Trump administration for their ties to Russian Federation on the election trail have been filed, President Donald Trump is getting mad.

MS. SANDERS: It was extremely limited; it was a volunteer position.
