Former Trump foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos pleads guilty to lying about contact with Russians
A former foreign policy adviser for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign pleaded guilty weeks ago to making false statements to the FBI as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.
According to court documents released Monday, George Papadopoulos, 30, pleaded guilty to making “material false statements and material omissions” during an interview with the FBI in January as part of its investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
The document said Papadopoulos “lied to special agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, concerning a federal investigation … about the timing, extent, and nature of his relationships and interactions with certain foreign nationals whom he understood to have close connections with senior Russian government officials.”
