Mueller says former Trump aide should spend six months in jail for lying to FBI in Russia probe

Mueller says former Trump aide should spend six months in jail for lying to FBI in Russia probeSpecial prosecutor Robert Mueller has recommended a former foreign policy aide to Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign be jailed for up to six months for lying to the FBI. George Papadopoulos had pleaded guilty to the charge in 2017 as part of a plea deal in one of the first indictments handed down by the FBI and Mr Mueller’s team as part of the investigation into alleged collusion between the campaign team and Russian officials. Prosecutors said in court filings the former aide severely hindered the early days of the investigation because he lied “at least a dozen” times in a January 2017 interview with the FBI about his contacts with a professor called Joseph Mifsud.

U.S. judge apologizes to prosecutors in former Trump aide Manafort's trial

U.S. judge apologizes to prosecutors in former Trump aide Manafort's trialThe rare apology by U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis surprised observers in his Alexandria, Virginia courtroom, who have watched the judge repeatedly criticize the government’s handling of the case while giving leeway to Manafort’s lawyers. “But like any human, and this robe doesn’t make me anything other than human, I sometimes make mistakes.” Ellis had chastised prosecutors for allowing IRS agent Michael Welch to be in court before he testified on Wednesday, saying he did not like witnesses present before taking the stand. When I exclude witnesses, I mean everybody.” Prosecutors had told Ellis he had approved having Welch and other expert witnesses attend the proceedings, a point they repeated in a court filing on Thursday asking for a “curative instruction” to the jury to set the record straight.
