Papadopoulos: On Putin Meeting Proposal, 'My Recollection Differs' From Sessions'

Share

At that meeting, the Maltese professor, who had ties to Russia, told Papadopoulos the Russians had obtained a number of Hillary Clinton's emails.

The aide, George Papadopoulos, said recently in an interview and court filings that Sessions, an early and influential adviser to President Donald Trump's campaign, welcomed the idea.

He said that at the time of the meeting, more seasoned foreign policy experts were being "scooped up" by other Republican campaigns, and that Trump did not have "elite" people working for him.

The former adviser also said the Trump campaign team was "fully aware" of his efforts to broker a summit with Russia's President Vladimir Putin.

"I don't think he was committed either way", Papadopoulos said of Trump.

Papadopoulos, the first campaign aide sentenced in special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation, acknowledged that his actions hindered an investigation of national importance, a move that the judge in his case said resulted in the 31-year-old putting his own self-interest above that of his country.

Ex-Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos suggested Sunday his testimony to special counsel Robert Mueller "might have helped move something towards" demonstrating collusion between the campaign and Russian Federation.

"All I can say is that my testimony might have helped move something towards that, but I have no idea".

Outside the courthouse Friday, Breen said Papadopoulos didn't recall ever telling anyone in the campaign about the fact that Russian Federation had dirt on Clinton in the form of emails.

Papadopoulos said he told Halper he had no idea what he was talking about.

During his Federal Bureau of Investigation interview on January 27, 2017, "George found himself personally conflicted during the interrogation".

The DNC, which is suing Russian Federation, the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks for interfering in the 2016 election, said in a court filing Friday that it believes all the defendants in the case have been served 'with the exception of Mifsud (who is missing and may be deceased).' The lawyers didn't elaborate.

"My recollection differs from Jeff Sessions'", Papadopoulos told Stephanopoulos.

In light of journalist Bob Woodward's upcoming book about turmoil inside the White House and a remarkable op-ed in the New York Times by a "senior administration official" about a "quiet resistance" in the administration, Warner said Mr. Trump is not a president who "understands our system of laws and rule of law".

The former campaign aide insisted his location in London meant his communications were conducted "99 percent over email".

Weeks later, stolen Mrs Clinton emails were leaked over the internet by what U.S. intelligence chiefs now say were Russian intelligence actors. "Are you interested or not, or I just don't want to continue this exercise if it's fruitless".
