White House downplays George Papadopoulos' role in Trump campaign
Nov 01, 2017, 00:26
The special counsel tasked with investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election as well as potential collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin released a statement which says that Papadopoulos "pleaded guilty on October 5, 2017, to making false statements to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1001".
"Which I think that shows, one, his level of importance in the campaign and two, what little role he had within coordinating anything officially for the campaign", she said, repeating her attempts to minimize Papadopoulos' role in the President's campaign, which she said was "extremely limited".
The White House insists investigators are looking in the wrong direction.
Sanders emphasized that she's "not sure that the president recalls specific details" of a March 31 national security team meeting at Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.in which Papadopoulos was present.

Mrs. Sanders said that the Trump campaign has always fully cooperated with the investigation, including turning over all of Mr. Papadopoulos's emails.
A Trump campaign supervisor encouraged Papadopoulos to make the trip "if it is feasible" on August 15, 2016.
