Former adviser to trump, was sentenced to 14 days in prison

A former adviser to trump George Papadopoulos was sentenced to 14 days in prison for making false statements to the FBI.

The sentence was handed down by a Federal court in Washington on Friday, September 8. In addition, Papadopoulos was fined $9500 and was sentenced to 200 hours of community service and one year probation.

Former adviser to trump, said that he regretted his actions. In his address to the court he said he made a «terrible mistake» and wants to make amends.

The Prosecutor claims that the false testimony Papadopoulos during his interview with Federal investigators in January 2017, has gravely impeded the investigation. Because of this, the FBI failed to arrest the Professor of the London — presumably, the Russian agent before he finally left the United States in February 2017.
