White House: We Have Nothing to Do With Manafort's Indictment

White House: We Have Nothing to Do With Manafort's Indictment”

The guilty plea by Mr. Papadopoulos and a 20-count indictment against Paul Manafort, a former Trump campaign chairman, gave special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe momentum this week and put the White House on defense against allegations of collusion with the Kremlin during the 2016 presidential race.

She responded that he was a campaign volunteer who played a minimal role.

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). Meanwhile, CNN's fact check read: "Reality check: Papadopoulos' role", and listed that Trump had in the past cited Papadopoulos as an "excellent guy" and that Papadopoulos had attended "at least one meeting". And now, Hillary Clinton is pushing back. Both pleaded not guilty.

Speaking of Trump Jr's meeting with Russians past year, she said: "The big difference here is you have a meeting that took place vs millions of dollars being sent to create fake information to actually influence the election".

Her comments echoed President Trump's tweet earlier in the day in which he called Mr. Papadopoulos "was already proven to be a liar".

Papadopoulos was living in London when he joined the campaign, according to the indictment.

Papadopoulos's guilty plea, she said, has nothing to do with the activities of the campaign.

Mr. Papadopoulos's offers were repeatedly rebuffed by the campaign, although one official told him to go to Russian Federation in order to gather dirt about Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

The professor, the statement indicates, had "substantial connections to Russian government officials" even though Papadopoulos claimed the professor was "a nothing".

Three people have been indicted - the first charges in the investigation into whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation.
