Adviser he once called 'excellent' was really a 'young low level volunteer'

Reports: Iowa's Clovis urged Trump foreign policy adviser to meet with Russians

Former Trump Aide Pleads Guilty to Lying in Mueller Probe

In April, the professor introduced Papadopoulos to a Russian national connected to the Russian ministry of foreign affairs, and they had conversations over Skype and email about setting up a meeting between Trump campaign and Russian government officials.

"It was a brief meeting that took place quite some time ago". Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about the conversations and has been cooperating with investigators, the documents said.

"We will have the opportunity to comment on George's involvement when called upon by the court at a later date", Breen said.

The Washington Post reported on Monday that Sam Clovis was the unnamed "campaign supervisor" mentioned in a court filing that said George Papadopoulos, a foreign policy adviser on the campaign, pleaded guilty to making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Court papers unsealed Monday also revealed an indictment against Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.

He was named along with retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg, former Bush administration inspector general Joseph Schmitz, worldwide affairs professor Walid Phares and energy executive Carter Page, whose ties to Russian interests have also been scrutinized by congressional inquiries.

The campaign supervisor who sent the email to Papadopoulos was not identified in court documents, but the Washington Post and Yahoo News identified the supervisor as Clovis, who now serves as senior White House adviser to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

They also hint at more headaches for the White House and former campaign officials.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov highlighted the absence of allegations against Russian Federation in the indictment against Manafort and another aide, Rick Gates, saying on Tuesday that Moscow had always said it had never meddled in the US election.

On pardons, Sekulow says: "I have not had a conversation with the president regarding pardons". One suspects, from his delivery, that if Jason Voorhees had been listed, Trump would have read his name and said: "Hockey player".

Social media reacts to Carolina Panthers trading Kelvin Benjamin to Buffalo
His rookie season was his most productive as he posted just over 1,000 yards receiving on 73 receptions with nine touchdowns. Former Florida State Seminoles wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin is changing National Football League addresses.

The White House had braced over the weekend for an indictment of Manafort and for allegations of financial misconduct that it could dismiss as unrelated to the campaign or administration.

"Writing to the Russian contact a week before the Republican National Convention, Papadopoulos proposed a meeting for August or September in the United Kingdom that would include "my national chairman and maybe one other foreign policy adviser" and members of Putin's office and Russia's foreign ministry", the filings said.

There's no evidence that the meeting ever occurred, but the email makes it sound like Trump officials put some planning into it (as opposed to suggesting that Papadopoulos conduct the meeting himself, if he felt like it).

"Need to change your name to Not That George Papadopoulos", tweeted @astrosgirlkel. The two men then exchanged emails about a possible meeting between Trump campaign aides and Russian government officials. Sessions, however, did attend, and he and Papadopoulos sat next to each other, according to the source who was in the room.
