White House: 'Nothing Happened Beyond' Papadopoulos Contacting Prof

But "Trump's anger Monday was visible to those who interacted with him, and the mood in the corridors of the White House was one of weariness and fear of the unknown, "The Washington Post reports".

"There is no evidence Mr. Manafort or the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government", said Manafort's attorney, Kevin Downing.

Ruling out changing the special counsel Robert Mueller, the former FBI Director, at this time, she hoped that the investigations would conclude soon.

The 31-page Manafort indictment unsealed Monday morning does not reference his work a chairman of the Trump campaign.

Sanders claimed that Papadopoulos was unpaid and asserted that his activities were considered "unofficial".

Additionally, Sanders' repetition of the word "volunteer" to show reduced significance rings hollow in light of the fact Manafort also worked on the campaign for free and is now accused of, amongst other things, "conspiracy against the US".

Another one of CNN's fact checks sought to clarify what George Papadopoulos's role was on Trump's presidential campaign.

"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".

"It has to do with his failure to tell the truth".

John. Q Sarah can you just explain what George Papadopoulos' role with the campaign was? And again, no activity was ever done in an official capacity on behalf of the campaign in that regard.

As the first charges in the Muller probe into the Trump administration for their ties to Russian Federation on the election trail have been filed, President Donald Trump is getting mad.

"It was extremely limited".
