Im­pris­oned Pa­padopou­los freed after 14-day sen­tence

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - WASHINGTON -

Ge­orge Pa­padopou­los, the first per­son sent to prison in the Rus­sia in­ves­ti­ga­tion, has been re­leased.

That’s ac­cord­ing to the Fed­eral Bureau of Pris­ons.

The for­mer Trump cam­paign for­eign pol­icy ad­viser was sen­tenced to 14 days in prison this year after he pleaded guilty to ly­ing to the FBI about his con­tacts with Rus­sian in­ter­me­di­aries.

Spe­cial coun­sel Robert Mueller’s team rec­om­mended in­car­cer­a­tion for Pa­padopou­los be­cause they said he be­grudged his co­op­er­a­tion and his lies harmed the probe.
