Papadopoulos pleaded guilty last year to making false statements to the FBI about his contacts with Russian intermediaries. He is the first campaign aide to be sentenced in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing probe into possible collusion between Russia and the 2016 election campaign of then-Republican candidate Trump.
