WASHINGTON (AP) — A sentencing date has been set for former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos.
Court records show that Greek-American Papadopoulos is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 7.
Sentencing memoranda are due from prosecutors and defense lawyers in August.
Papadopoulos pleaded guilty last year to lying to investigators about his contacts with people linked to Russia during the Republican campaign. He then became a key cooperator for special counsel Robert Mueller as Mueller investigates Russian election interference and possible coordination with President Donald Trump’s associates.
In recent weeks, Papadopoulos’ wife has said in media interviews that her husband had nothing to do with Russia. She has also called for Trump to pardon her husband.
