Former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos will be sentenced in September on felony charges he announced he'd plead guilty to last October, reports Politico.


Special counsel Robert Mueller and his defense attorneys both asked the judge Randy Moss for the hearing to happen on September 7, or in October if the judge doesn't have a spot on his schedule.

In July 2017, the Russia-connected Papadopoulos was arrested in secret by the FBI on charges of making false statements and with obstruction of justice for misleading the FBI.

Papadopoulos landed on the FBI's radar after he told an Australian diplomat that Russians had stolen emails from Hillary Clinton that would harm her campaign in May 2016. The Australian tipped off the FBI which began investigating before it was publicly known that the Russians had stolen Clinton's emails.
