- George Papadopoulos admitted to lying to special counsel Robert Mueller
- He was investigated as part of Mueller’s Russia probe
- He was asking for a stay of his two-week federal sentence
- But a judge on Sunday denied his request and ordered him to jail
Former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos has been ordered to report to federal prison on Monday as a federal judge rejected his last-minute bid to avoid his two week jail sentence.
Papadopoulos must surrender to agents on Monday to start his 14-day sentence for lying to FBI agents working on special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
U.S. District Court Judge Randy Moss said Papadopoulos’s legal arguments fell short of what was needed to justify delaying the sentence that was handed down in September, Politico reported.
