Papadopoulos was told by Mifsud that Kremlin officials had told him they had "dirt" on Clinton in the form of "thousands of emails".

Though Sessions testified in November of 2017 that he "pushed back" on the idea, in Papadopoulos' interview with ABC Sunday morning, he described Sessions' reaction to the suggestion at the time as "quite enthusiastic".

He said that at the time of the meeting, more seasoned foreign policy experts were being "scooped up" by other Republican campaigns, and that Trump did not have "elite" people working for him.

"My recollection differs from Jeff Sessions'", Papadopoulos said on ABC's "This Week" Sunday morning.

A judge for the US District Court for the District of Columbia [official website] sentenced former Trump campaign aid George Papadopoulos to 14 days in prison on Friday.

Missionaries of Jesus condemns nuns’ protest
The bishop confined the nun to a guestroom in St Francis Mission Home in Kuravilangad in Kottayam district of Kerala . Terming the allegations against him as "serious", the bishop said only three persons knew the truth.


The former Trump campaign aide appeared on the show Tuesday, four days after he was sentenced as part of his guilty plea to lying to FBI agents investigating Russian election interference. "He was open to the idea and he deferred" to Sessions, then a US senator from Alabama who was advising the campaign. He did tell the campaign in March 2016 he could set up a meeting between then-candidate Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin.

CNN's Tapper pressed Papadopoulos about whether and with whom he might have shared what he learned from Mifsud about Russians' having Clinton's emails.

Papadopoulos admitted past year that he lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about interactions in which people he thought were linked to the Russian government described Moscow having "thousands of emails" containing damaging information about Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. They met randomly in Italy, and Papadopoulos said Mifsud told him he was connected to governments in Europe, including Russian Federation.

"The early date of this contact is significant: Even the Clinton campaign was not yet aware that Russian Federation possessed their stolen emails", Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee wrote in a status report about their investigation.

Weeks later, stolen Mrs Clinton emails were leaked over the internet by what United States intelligence chiefs now say were Russian intelligence actors.

Papadopoulos admitted that he lied to FBI investigators when they interviewed him on January 27, 2017.

Papadopoulos said even his family was concerned about his romantic relationship and suspected his wife was a Russian spy.

The former Trump campaign aide tried to remind "The View" co-hosts about the "context" of that meeting with Mifsud before they flipped the script on his talking points.

Papadopoulos told Hannity it felt like a bomb was dropped on him.

"As far as I remember, I absolutely did not share this information with anyone on the campaign", the ex-campaign aide said, adding, "I might have, but I have no recollection of doing so". "Of course I'm remorseful, I'm contrite and I did lie [to the FBI] but you know you're just taken off guard, I guess, in such a momentous occasion where you're potentially sitting there incriminating the president".
