George Papadopoulos admitted to the court in Washington DC that he had hindered an investigation of national importance by hiding the extent of his contacts with Russian intermediaries.

Papadopoulos reportedly played a key role in sparking the FBI's probe of Trump's contacts with Russian Federation when, during a night of heavy drinking in a London bar in May 2016, he told an Australian diplomat that Russian Federation had dirt on Clinton, according to the New York Times.

But Senator Mark Warner, the senior Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, which has its own Russian Federation collusion investigation, applauded Mueller's work.

Papadopoulos was the first person affiliated with the Trump campaign to be indicted, as part of the Mueller probe. In late April, he told them that Mifsud said the Russians had information that could harm Clinton, in the form of thousands of emails. "I still have significant questions about how high that information went, and I know the Senate Intelligence Committee would like to hear directly from Mr. Papadopoulos".

In a court filing, lawyers for Papadopoulos had argued for probation, saying he was "ashamed and remorseful" but wasn't trying to undermine the Russian Federation probe when he was "caught off-guard by an impromptu interrogation".

If Tapper was disappointed with this statement, Papadopoulos made it up to him, saying then-Sen.

Asked if he had any comment as he left court, Papadopoulos said, "not yet".

After the hearing, outside the courthouse, Breen told reporters that he thought the sentence was appropriate.

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

"So everybody said if you only listened to your mother none of this would have happened", she said. "I think he learned his lesson". "He was very fair", Kiki Papadopoulos said.

However, Friday's sentence was much lesser than the six months the prosecution had requested for Papadopoulos, The Guardian reported.

Even after his arrest and plea agreement past year, prosecutors say Papadopoulos continued to be hard with investigators, only providing information after being confronted with documents such as emails and text messages.

The FBI cancelled the meeting when it discovered that Papadopoulos had sat down for a media interview about the case.

He gave false statements about his contacts to the FBI, which the FBI said impeded their investigation into the extent that Russian meddling may have worked its way into the campaign.

In court Friday, prosecutor Andrew Goldstein said Papadopoulos' cooperation "didn't come close to the standard of substantial assistance". Instead, they said, Papadopoulos "misled investigators to save his professional aspirations and preserve a perhaps misguided loyalty to his master".

In subsequent campaign communications, Papadopoulos was encouraged to pursue a Putin-Trump meeting. Jeff Sessions "appeared to also like the idea and stated that the campaign should look into it".

CNN's Tapper noted that Session's attorneys said that Sessions stands by his testimony, and denied encouraging a meeting with Russians. Last November, Sessions testified to Congress that he had "pushed back" against Papadopoulos' offer.

In Friday's sentencing, Papadopoulos was also handed 12 months of supervised release, 200 hours of community service, and a fine of $9,500 (£7,350).
