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

CNN on Tuesday sought to fact-check White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders's comments in real time during her televised briefing with reporters.

Papadopoulos was indicted for lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contact with a Russian professor, a female Russian national, and someone described as an official in Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

That's narrowly correct if Sanders is referring to the indictments of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates on 12 counts, including conspiracy, money laundering, failure to file financial disclosures, failure to register as foreign agents, and false statements therein.

IAEA's Amano, Iran's nuclear chief hold talks in Tehran
Tehran said it will continue to produce missiles for its defence and does not consider that a violation of global accords. Prior to the meeting with Amano, Iran's president excoriated US policies before his country's parliament.

Mueller's office also unsealed a guilty plea from George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign adviser.

The indictment also said that Papadopoulos was told by the Russian professor in London that the Russians had dirt on Hillary Clinton in the form of thousands of emails.

"Which I think that shows, one, his level of importance in the campaign and two, what little role he had within coordinating anything officially for the campaign", she said, repeating her attempts to minimize Papadopoulos' role in the President's campaign, which she said was "extremely limited".

Copy-Plane Carrying OKC Thunder Team Suffers Damage En Route To Chicago
The Oklahoma City Thunder's plane landed safely after a mid-air collision that left a huge dent in the nose of the plane. The Thunder were travelling to Chicago to face the Bulls later Saturday following a 119-116 loss to Minnesota on Friday.

When asked about that later in the briefing, Sanders insisted that it was only one meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russian officials, while trying to say that Clinton's campaign was actually involved in colluding with Russia. "That doesn't have anything to do with the campaign or campaign's activities", she said.

"What Papadopoulos did was lie and that's on him, not the campaign", said Mrs. Sanders.

Papadopoulos was one of five people announced to be part of Trump's foreign policy team in March of previous year.

"There are no activities or official capacity in which the Trump campaign was engaged in any of these activities". The dossier relied on a Russian government official and a Russian spy for information. She said the White House still expects Mueller's investigation to end "soon".
