"I made a awful mistake for which I paid dearly and I am terribly ashamed", Papadopoulos said at his sentencing hearing.
Papadopoulos was the second person ordered to prison in the sprawling, 16-month Russian Federation collusion investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and came just over two weeks after two former top aides to Trump were convicted of felony crimes in cases that grew out of the probe.
"I made a terrible mistake, but I am a good man who is eager for redemption", Papadopoulos said.
Prosecutors had asked for six months. Despite constant attacks by the president, Mueller and his team "are conducting a serious, professional investigation" into the 2016 Trump campaign's contacts with Russians, Warner said in a statement.
But he said incarceration was necessary because Papadopoulos had lied on a matter of grave national interest and the public needed to understand that lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation is a serious matter.
Washington, Sep 8 (UNI) The former Trump adviser whose remarks in a London pub sparked the U.S. inquiry into possible collusion with Russian Federation has been sentenced to 14 days in jail, said a BBC News report.
The sentencing, coming almost one year after he pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents, ends an important yet mysterious story line in the examination of whether anyone from Trump's team conspired with Moscow to influence the presidential election.
He said Trump had impeded the inquiry by calling it a "witch hunt" and "fake news".
At one point, Thomas Breen, Papadopoulos' lawyer, presented a curious line of argument for leniency during the sentencing. "I respect the, I always said I respect Mueller's interest in my profile because clearly it's quite alarming, the fact that I marry George Papadopoulos in the middle of this storm", Mangiante Papadopoulos said. Told by the professor, Joseph Mifsud, that a Russian operative was "Putin's niece", Papadopoulos credulously repeated that assertion in an email to Trump campaign officials, prosecutors said. He said at least a dozen times he learned of it before joining the campaign, according to court documents. However, they wrote, the claim that his lies harmed the investigation are "speculative and contrary to the evidence".
"14 days for $28 MILLION - $2 MILLION a day, No Collusion. A great day for America!" he said, unsuprisingly, in a Tweet.
Prior to a campaign rally ahead of of Papadopoulos' sentencing, the president sought to distance himself from his one time campaign advisor.
Papadopoulos was the first person affiliated with the Trump campaign to be indicted, as part of the Mueller probe.
For a time, Papadopoulos also looked to be a key informant.
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.
Before he was sentenced, Papadopoulos spoke to Judge Randy Moss for about three minutes, reading a speech in which he admitted he was wrong, ashamed and regretful.
The US President has also denied collusion in numerous occasions.
