Default Papadopoulos wants health to testify before Senate

Buenos Aires (AP) George Papadopoulos, the previous Trump campaign adviser who pleaded guilty in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe, is asking for immunity to testify before the Senate thinking ability committee.

Two people comfortable with the negotiations said Friday that Papadopoulos has asked for the immunity as the committee seeks a closed door interview with him. The people requested anonymity because the committee's negotiations on terms are confidential. The committee is checking out Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

It's unclear why Papadopoulos wants immunity after he had been sentenced to two weeks in prison for lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russian intermediaries during the campaign. But he has spent many nights posting on forums, together with his wife, Venting anger about the FBI and insisting he was framed by the U.S. government.

Papadopoulos appeared on Capitol Hill on Thursday for a closed door interview with Republicans in the House who are checking what they say is bias at the Justice Department. He did not receive immunity for that employment.

Republicans left an interview saying he had reinforced their belief that the FBI and Justice Department were biased against Trump when they started the Russia investigation. And Papadopoulos said in interviews Friday on "Fox good friends" That he learned new information in the meeting and is considering pulling out his guilty plea.

It's unlikely that he could do that. Federal law most often does not allow defendants to withdraw a guilty plea after sentencing without proof of some overriding injustice or new evidence.

A lawyer for Papadopoulos would not comment precisely on his request for immunity.

Republicans said they learned new facts from Papadopoulos but wouldn't detail the truly amazing were. They duplicated their claims, Echoed by leader Donald Trump, That the Justice Department made mistakes in 2016 as it cleared Democrat Hillary Clinton in an investigation of her emails and started a probe of Trump's Russia ties.

"these facts continue to lend themselves to the narrative that there were folks in the Obama FBI and Justice Department that prejudged Hillary Clinton's innocence, And prejudged Donald Trump's guilt or guidance with the Russian government and potential collusion, Said State of Texas Rep. Brian Ratcliffe, who attended the interview.

Papadopoulos, Who served as an overseas policy adviser to Trump's campaign, has been a central figure in the probe dating back to before Mueller's May 2017 appointment. He was the first person to plead guilty in Mueller's probe and the first Trump advertising campaign adviser to be sentenced. His case was also the first one to detail a member of the Trump campaign having knowledge of Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election while it was ongoing.

to be able to a sweeping indictment, Russian learning ability had stolen emails from Clinton's campaign and other Democratic groups by April 2016, The same month Papadopoulos was told by a professor, Joseph Mifsud, That Russian officers had told him they had "mud-dirt" on Clinton obtainable "Thousands of writing emails, in order to a New York Times report last year, Papadopoulos then told an Hawaiian diplomat, Alexander Downer, who tipped off states.
