Papadopoulos related the talk of Democratic emails to an Australian diplomat during what The New York Times described as a night of heavy drinking at an upscale London bar in May 2016.
It's stunning enough to have a former campaign aide to the president of the United States sentenced as part of a foreign counterintelligence investigation.
This is the first sentence dealt to a Trump campaign affiliate in special counsel's Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the Trump campaign.
US President Donald Trump reacted by taking an apparent swipe at the cost of the investigation into the former aide. "The message for all of us is to check our loyalty, to tell the truth, to help the good guys".
Trump said earlier Friday that he did not know Papadopoulos.
Breen told reporters outside court, "I think we're all somewhat satisfied at this point in time that they know Russian Federation meddled in the election".
31 year-old George Papadopoulos told a sentencing hearing in Washington DC that he was a "patriotic American" who made a mistake by lying.
Papadopoulos has never publicly named those within the Trump campaign he told about the offer of emails from the professor, but he has said he was in regular touch with campaign chairman Paul Manafort, campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and other top campaign officials.
Moss also said he thought it was important that his sentence send the public a message about the gravity of misleading and, "telling lies to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on matters of grave importance to the nation".
If Tapper was disappointed with this statement, Papadopoulos made it up to him, saying then-Sen.
Tracking rain, storms for central Indiana Thursday
On the Mississippi Gulf Coast, 12 casinos that were ordered closed Tuesday were given permission Wednesday to open at noon. A storm surge covered barrier islands as the storm blew through, and some inland roadways were flooded by the rain.
Not only that, Papadopoulos withheld a cellphone that he used during the campaign, prosecutors said, and provided it only when asked about the phone. "It will give him time to think things over". "I think he learned his lesson". "Judge Moss was very fair", she said.
Prosecutors asked for a sentence of as long as six months in jail, telling Moss that Papadopoulos failed to provide "substantial assistance" to investigators and disclosed what he did only after he was confronted with his own records.
"The defendant's lies undermined investigators' ability to challenge the Professor or potentially detain or arrest him while he was still in the United States", they wrote, noting that Mifsud left the U.S.in February 2017 and hasn't returned.
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. Papadopolous' attorney argued in court Friday that Trump "hindered that investigation more" than Papadopoulos did. According to investigators, the meeting was held on 24 March 2016 - after he came in command of the trump. He said Papadopoulos was "riding very high" at the time he lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and that the defendant "had a lot of advantages in life". He publicly contradicted, in his court filing, congressional testimony from Attorney General Jeff Sessions about Sessions' response to the Putin-Trump meeting proposal. A spokeswoman for Sessions declined to comment after Papadopoulos' filing last week.
He appeared in federal court in D.C. before U.S. District Judge Randolph D. Moss, who also sentenced Papadopoulos to 200 hours of community service and 12 months of supervised release.
