Former Trump aide George Papadopoulos sentenced to 14 days in prison

Papadopoulos wife and unofficial spokeswoman Simona took to Twitter to share her support of her husband

Three others have either pleaded guilty or been convicted. Moss also noted how his lies were serious, and how Papadopoulos placed his own self interest and his loyalty to a candidate over his loyalty to his country. "All I can say about this question - because I've been asked a million times - is if I told anyone it would have been discovered by now", he told CNN.

Her husband said, "I have no idea, George".

On the day Donald Trump's former foreign-policy adviser George Papadopoulos was sentenced to two weeks in jail for lying to investigators about his contacts with a United Kingdom professor peddling dirt from Russian officials about Hillary Clinton, lawyers in an unrelated case raised the prospect the professor, Joseph Mifsud, may be dead. "The Mysterious Case of George Papadopoulos" airs Friday at 11 p.m. ET.

In addition to the 14 days, Moss sentenced Papadopoulos to: 12 months of supervised release; 200 hours of community service; a $9,500 fine; and a $100 court assessment.

In the interview, Papadopoulos shared new details from his saga that haven't come to light before.

Even after his arrest and plea agreement previous year, Goldstein said, Papadopoulos continued to be hard, only providing information after being confronted with documents such as emails and text messages.

In Delhi , 183 cases were registered under Section 377 and in Maharashtra 170 such cases were registered. In 2009, the Delhi high court had read down the section, calling it a "violation of fundamental rights".

A former adviser to US President Donald Trump whose contacts with Russians set off the investigation into possible collusion with Moscow was jailed on Friday for lying to the FBI.

"While some in the room rebuffed George's offer, Mr Trump nodded with approval and deferred to Mr Sessions, who appeared to like the idea and stated that the campaign should look into it", Papadopoulos claimed in a pre-sentencing statement last week.

The Justice Department has declined to comment about Papadopoulos' assertions.

That clashes with what Sessions, a key campaign aide and now Trump's attorney general, told the House Judiciary Committee last November. Along the way, Papadopoulos fell in love with an Italian model-turned-diplomat, and the couple got married in March.

According to a sweeping indictment handed up this summer, Russian intelligence had stolen emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign and other Democratic groups by April 2016, the same month Papadopoulos was told by a professor that Russian officials had told him they had "dirt" on Clinton in the form of "thousands of emails". In part because Papadopoulos misled the authorities, prosecutors said in court papers, they failed to arrest a London-based professor - suspected of being a Russian operative - before he left the United States in February 2017, never to return. "So, I certainly wouldn't disabuse the notion that he might have been dangling something to see if I would bite or if the campaign would bite".

He had actually met them after joining Mr Trump's campaign.

"I think everyone was a little paranoid throughout this past year", Papadopoulos said. "And then a nervous reaction I had, I blurted out, I heard this information".

"So everybody said if you only listened to your mother none of this would have happened", she said.

Papadopoulos said he remembered a great deal from that meeting with Downer, which he described as confrontational, but he had no memory of discussing the dirt about Clinton. Russian Federation approach Papadopoulos, 31, was an inexperienced London-based oil analyst when he joined the Trump campaign in March 2016 on the Republican candidate's national security advisory board.

"Do you know anything about that?"

Breen said his client's primary interest was brokering a meeting between Trump and Putin, a move he believed the campaign supported. "I might have, but I have no recollection of doing so".

Papadopoulos' lawyer, Thomas Breen, told the court Friday that his client's cooperation had earned him probation, saying he was "unsophisticated, he was naive and he was a fool".

I didn't take any pleasure in watching Nadal go through the motions in that second set - especially in case he did more damage. This is my favourite tournament, my biggest memories on a tennis court came on this court in 2009.

USA investigators were only alerted to Papadopoulos's activities in mid-2016 after he told Australia's ambassador to London, Alexander Downer, about his talks with Mifsud during a late-night drinking session in a London pub.
