ABC News reports:
Nearly one year after aspiring foreign policy consultant George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty, the North Side Chicago native was sentenced Friday for lying to the FBI about his activities with the Trump for president campaign.
In a DC federal courtroom, Papadopoulos was handed 14 days in prison and 12 months of supervised release by U.S. Judge Randolph Moss. Papadopoulos was also given 200 hours of community service and a $9,500 fine.
“The President of the United States hindered this investigation more than George Papadopoulos ever did,” Papadopoulos’ attorney said in court. https://t.co/KIqexlay2n
