Papadopoulos says Sessions supported Putin campaign meeting
Convicted former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos has publicly contradicted Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ sworn testimony to Congress, saying both Sessions and Donald Trump apparently supported his proposal that Trump meet with Vladimir Putin during the 2016 campaign, according to a court filing late Friday night.
The Trump-Putin idea
In March that year, Papadopoulos met Joseph Mifsud, a European professor working in London who claimed to have connections to the Russian government, Papadopoulos’s lawyers said. “Professor Mifsud paid young George little attention until learning of his position as one of Trump’s foreign policy advisers,” they write.
