White House: no sign of collusion in campaign aides' indictments

White House: no sign of collusion in campaign aides' indictments

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders downplayed George Papadopoulos' role within President Trump's campaign, referring to him as a "volunteer".

A Trump campaign supervisor encouraged Papadopoulos to make the trip "if it is feasible" on August 15, 2016.

The White House has acknowledged this one meeting as there is photographic evidence of it from Trump's own Instagram account (Papadopoulos is third from left).

"It was a volunteer position", Sanders said of Papadopoulos' role in the campaign.

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates were indicted by a federal grand jury Monday on 12 counts, including conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading Foreign Agent Registration (FARA) statements, false statements and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign banks and financial accounts.

"He asked to do things, he was basically pushed back or not responded to in any way", Sanders said of Papadopoulos' efforts within the campaign, which included sending out emails that offered to set up "a meeting between us and the Russian leadership to discuss U.S. -Russia ties under President Trump".

George Papadopoulos, a member of the campaign's foreign policy advisory, pleaded guilty on October 5 for lying to federal officials about his connections to individuals with alleged ties to the Russian government, according to court documents released Monday.

"What Papadopoulos did was lie and that's on him, not the campaign", said Mrs. Sanders.

All of the charges fell short of implicating Mr. Trump or campaign officials in conspiring with Russian Federation to affect the outcome of the election.

It's said that those who don't learn from history are bound to repeat it; that's a truism that Donald Trump may realize sooner than later.
