Former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos sentenced to 14 days in prison for lying to FBI
Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos was sentenced Friday to 14 days in prison for lying to the FBI during Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Papadopoulos was also sentenced to 13 months supervised release, 200 hours community service and a $9,500 fine. Before his sentencing, the former adviser said he was “deeply embarrassed and ashamed.”
“My entire life has been turned upside down, I hope to have a second chance to redeem myself,” he said. Mueller’s team had pushed for a six-month prison sentence, while Papadopoulos’ defense had requested probation.

This sentence is weak for the crime committed. They should have made an example of him and made him do real time. The average person would probably get a couple years.
George Papadopoulos, a former foreign policy adviser to President Donald Trump’s campaign, has decided to stick with his plea agreement with special counsel Robert Mueller, his wife told ABC News on Wednesday.
As part of his plea agreement, Papadopoulos agreed to cooperate with Mueller as part of his probe into Russian meddling during the 2016 campaign.
You funny! I'm sure the prosecution would soft-peddle their case once they had the deal they wanted. Buddy got a slap on the wrist, and now they take it up another level. Lather, rinse, repeat if necessary.

Notice how the 'free' press has not covered what Judge decided to go on record about.
He said that the prosecution had not shown any evidence to suggest Papadopoulos colluded with Russians in any way.
Funny how the media would miss that little gem out.
