White House downplays George Papadopoulos's role in Trump campaign

White House downplays George Papadopoulos's role in Trump campaign | 30 Oct 2017 | White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders downplayed George Papadopoulos's role within President Trump's campaign, referring to him as a "volunteer." "He was a volunteer member of an advisory council that met one time," Sanders told reporters Monday afternoon during the White House press briefing. Papadopoulos, who is 30 years old, joined the Trump campaign in early March 2016 as a foreign adviser. The special counsel tasked with investigating [alleged] Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election as well as potential collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin released a statement which says that Papadopoulos "pleaded guilty on Oct. 5, 2017, to making false statements to FBI agents, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1001."
