Trump campaign gave feds the goods on Papadopoulos, says White House

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.

Sanders later said Papadopoulos was a member of "a volunteer advisory council that meant one time over the course of a year".

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.

"It has nothing to do with the campaign's activities", she said of Papadopoulos' plea.

Earlier today Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election revealed its first targets Monday, with a former campaign adviser to President Donald Trump admitting he lied to the FBI about his contacts with Russians.

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".

Mr. Manafort and longtime business partner Rick Gates were charged with conspiring against the USA and money laundering in connection with their work for pro-Russian interests in Ukraine.

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.

"Majority took place well before the campaign ever even existed", she asserted.

"We believe that it will be concluded soon", she said. He said, "The walls are closing in" in the White House, and "everyone is freaking out".
