Mueller Recommends Papadopoulos Be Sentenced To Up To 6 Months In Prison

7

Special counsel Robert Mueller has recommended that former Trump campaign staffer George Papadopoulos be sentenced to zero to six months in prison and face a fine of $9,500.

Mueller stated in a court filing Friday that those penalties “are warranted and appropriate” for Papadopoulos’s conduct in lying to federal investigators.

Mueller wrote in the filing that Papadopoulos chose to lie to federal investigators during a voluntary interview and that he “was expressly warned that it is a crime to lie to federal investigators.”

“The defendant knew the questions he was asked by the FBI were important, and he knew his answers were false at the time he gave them. His lies negatively affected the FBI’s Russia investigation, and prevented the FBI from effectively identifying and confronting witnesses in a timely fashion,” the court document states.

  1. Aha, so now Her´ Mueller has become Judge jury & executioner? Who does this guy think he is? Why are we the taxpayers who are funding his fishing expedition, not been asked permission?

  2. Interesting that Papadopoulos was sentenced to 6 months for lying while Comey was lying “under oath” and is still free and his security clearance not even taken from him.

    And what about Mueller’s won crimes? Is receiving 17 million dollar in illegal cash payments for for his role in facilitating the Uranium One deal (besides other government criminals like Brennan, Clapper, Comey, Rosenstein, Obama, Lynch, Holder, Clinton who also received moitzkes) not a bigger crime?
    And is Mueller’s covering up 9/11 not a bigger crime?
    WHY IS MUELLER NOT INVESTIGATED YET and NOT BEHIND BARS YET?
