Former Trump Adviser George Papadopoulos Jailed for 14 Days

  • 31 year old former Trump adviser George Papadopoulos has been sentenced 14 days in jail, 12 months of supervized release, $9,500 fine, and community service of 200 hours by the court in Washington DC. The sentencing was based upon the US inquiry on Papadopoulos’s remarks in a London pub. Last October, former Trump adviser pleaded guilty of lying to the FBI about the meeting timings with alleged go-betweens for Moscow. Papadopoulos was inteviewed by the FBI in January 2017 where he claimed that he met the two individuals having Russian ties before joining Donald Trump’s team in March 2016. However, it was later found that the statement was false and he met the two persons  after joining Donald  Trump’s 2016 Presidential election campaign.
