President Donald Trump on Friday mocked the two-week prison sentence given to former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contact with Russian operatives before the 2016 election, despite declaring hours earlier: “I don’t know him.”
Papadopoulos, who was sentenced to 14 days in jail, is the first Trump adviser to be sentenced as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and potential collusion between the Kremlin and the campaign.
14 days for $28 MILLION – $2 MILLION a day, No Collusion. A great day for America!
