The ongoing probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election continues today with no evidence that Trump's campaign colluded with foreign actors to meddle in the election.
"I made a awful mistake for which I paid dearly and I am terribly ashamed", Papadopoulos said in court.
Papadopoulos acknowledged that he had lied to investigators about contacts with a Kremlin-linked professor who informed him in April 2016 that the Russians had "dirt" on Hillary Clinton and "thousands of emails".
His lies about the timing of his encounter with the professor, including the false claim that it came before he'd joined the campaign, prevented investigators from effectively questioning Mifsud when he was in Washington in February 2017, prosecutors said in a court filing.
J.D. Gordon, former National Security Adviser for the Trump campaign, echoed similar sentiments, while blasting the Mueller probe.
In addition to the two weeks' jail term, Papadopoulos was given a year of probation and ordered to serve 200 hours of community service and fined $9,500.
Former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos exits U.S. District Court after his sentencing hearing, in Washington, U.S., September 7, 2018.
"As far as I remember, I absolutely did not share this information with anyone on the campaign", Papadopoulos told Tapper.
Thomas Breen, Papadopoulos's lawyer, admitted that his client had been "naive" and "a fool", but he also cast blame on President Trump.
The lawyers argued Papadopoulos lied as he was influenced by the President's aggressive sentiments on the probe.
In his pre-sentencing statement, Papadopoulos admitted lying to FBI investigators in January 2017 but said it had been out of a desire to protect his career and a naive loyalty to the Trump administration. "I can't guarantee. All I can say is, my memory is telling me that I never shared it with anyone on the campaign".
While this chapter of the Mueller investigation concludes for Papadopoulos, his testimony and information he provided as part of his plea deal could mean trouble for others in Trump's circle, including Mr. Trump himself. He recalled how he and attorney Robert Stanley and Papadopoulos visited the Federal Bureau of Investigation office in Chicago months ago and noticed the photos of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Trump hanging on the lobby wall. He had discussed with those foreigners the possibility of a foreign trip where Donald Trump could meet Vladimir Putin.
That clashes with what Sessions, a key campaign aide and now Trump's attorney general, told the House Judiciary Committee last November.
President Donald Trump and his allies have repeatedly downplayed Papadopoulos' role on the campaign.
"We don't talk politics", he said.
"It was at best begrudging efforts to cooperate and we don't think they were substantial or significant in any regard", he said.
