George Papadopoulos Sentenced to Two Weeks in Prison for Lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation

"I think about it still". Mifsud's current whereabouts are unknown, and Papadopoulos has denied telling anyone else from the president's campaign about Mifsud's claims.
"So everybody said if you only listened to your mother none of this would have happened", she said.
That was because, in January 2017, shortly before Papadopoulos was interviewed by - and lied to - the FBI, Trump proclaimed that the Russian Federation investigation was a "witch hunt" and "fake news", one his lawyers, Thomas Breen, told the court. He's the second defendant to be sentenced, after lawyer Alex van der Zwaan got 30 days behind bars.
U.S. District Judge Randolph Moss ordered the incarceration, saying that he couldn't avoid imposing prison time given the gravity of the investigation.
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.
'Young and ambitious' Federal Bureau of Investigation agents quietly opened a probe into Trump campaign officials possibly colluding with Russia after they were tipped off by an Australian diplomat that Papadopoulos had spoken about Russians having dirt on Clinton.
He said Papadopoulos' deception required investigators to scour more than 100,000 emails and gigabytes of data to reconstruct the timeline of his contacts with Russians and Russian intermediaries. The committee indicated that a private investigator had been used to find Mifsud, who had disappeared for months, and was told the Maltese professor may be dead.
George Papadopoulos, the former foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump's presidential campaign, has been sentenced to prison.
"No offence, but he was unsophisticated, he was naive and he was foolish", Breen said in court. Mifsud allegedly told Papadopoulos that the Kremlin had "dirt" on the Democratic Party's nominee, Hillary Clinton, in the form of "thousands" of "emails of Clinton".
In addition, they said Papadopoulos did not provide "substantial assistance" and only came clean after he was confronted with his own emails, texts and other evidence. In court papers, Breen wrote that during a March 2016 meeting attended by Papadopoulos, Trump nodded with approval at the idea, and then-Senator Jeff Sessions "appeared to like" it and said the campaign "should look into it". Mifsud introduced him to others who ostensibly had connections to Russian President Vladimir Putin - including a woman who claimed to be Putin's niece.
Attorneys for Papadopoulos had sought to avoid prison, instead requesting probation.
"I see Papadopoulos today, I don't know Papadopoulos, I don't know". 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.
Papadopoulos told CNN that he hopes to return to politics in the future.
"The message is for all of us to check our loyalty, to tell the truth, to help the good guys", Breen said.
