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.

Manafort trial – live updates: Robert Mueller's team ask Rick Gates discussion to be kept secret to protect Russia investigation

Manafort trial - live updates: Robert Mueller's team ask Rick Gates discussion to be kept secret to protect Russia investigationAfter three days of dramatic testimony in the trial of Paul Manafort,, prosecutors returned on Thursday to the nuts and bolts of their case against Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman as they sought to show he obtained millions of dollars in bank loans under false pretenses. Attorneys for special counsel Robert Mueller also got a rare — and narrow — acknowledgement from Judge TS Ellis III that he likely erred when he angrily confronted them a day earlier over whether he had allowed a witness to watch the trial. The judge’s comments and detailed testimony about Mr Manafort’s loans opened the eighth day of his trial as prosecutors began presenting the bulk of their bank fraud case against him after spending days largely on tax-evasion allegations.

Russia calls new U.S. sanctions draconian, rejects poisoning allegations

Russia calls new U.S. sanctions draconian, rejects poisoning allegationsRussia’s embassy in the United States on Thursday called new U.S. sanctions draconian and said the reason for the new restrictions — allegations it poisoned a former spy and his daughter in Britain — were far-fetched. The United States on Wednesday announced it would impose fresh sanctions on Russia after Washington determined Moscow had used a nerve agent against a former Russian double agent, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter, Yulia, in Britain. Russia has repeatedly denied responsibility for the attack, and Russia’s embassy in Washington said in a statement that Washington’s findings against it in the case were not backed by evidence.
