White House: 'Nothing Happened Beyond' Papadopoulos Contacting Prof

White House: 'Nothing Happened Beyond' Papadopoulos Contacting Prof

In yet another twist, George Papadopoulos, a foreign policy adviser for the Trump campaign, was revealed to have pleaded guilty earlier this month.

Sanders pushed back on those findings, saying "any actions (Papadopoulos) took would have been his own" and claiming she was "not aware of that conversation", which was detailed in the documents involving the campaign supervisor and Papadopoulos.

Both the Manafort charges and the Papadopoulos case are part of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign colluded with the foreign power to win the election.

"He was a volunteer member of an advisory council that met one time", Sanders told reporters Monday afternoon during the White House press briefing.

Another one of CNN's fact checks sought to clarify what George Papadopoulos's role was on Trump's presidential campaign.

"There are no activities or official capacity in which the Trump campaign was engaged in any of these activities".

But "Trump's anger Monday was visible to those who interacted with him, and the mood in the corridors of the White House was one of weariness and fear of the unknown, "The Washington Post reports".

She also criticized Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee for their contributions which funded research for a dossier alleging Mr. Trump's connections to Russian Federation.

Sanders was also asked how she could "describe Papadopoulos as having a limited role when there's a photograph of [him] sitting at a table with then-candidate Trump at a national security meeting".

"A lot of them took place well before the campaign ever even existed", she asserted. The press secretary said the White House does think it will wrap up soon because the "facts are on our side".
