Mr. Paige left the campaign shortly after trump’s trip, and since then advisers staff tried to distance themselves from him.

In the framework of cooperation with the investigation Papadopoulos confessed to perjury and reported that trump had not objected to meeting with Putin before the election.

«I don’t remember this meeting – confessed tramp. It was a bad meeting that was very long time ago.»
