Sanders emphasized that she's "not sure that the president recalls specific details" of a March 31 national security team meeting at Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.in which Papadopoulos was present.

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates pleaded not guilty on Monday to felony charges while another campaign adviser George Papadapoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the timing of meetings with alleged go-betweens for Russian Federation even as the White House distanced itself from them.

Sanders was then asked by a reporter: "So his activities were entirely of his invention, no one asked him to do any of these things - is that what you're telling the American public?" Meanwhile, CNN's fact check read: "Reality check: Papadopoulos' role", and listed that Trump had in the past cited Papadopoulos as an "excellent guy" and that Papadopoulos had attended "at least one meeting".

Manafort and Gates have pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Her comments echoed President Trump's tweet earlier in the day in which he called Mr. Papadopoulos "was already proven to be a liar".


She replied: "There are thousands of photographs [of Trump] with millions of people".

She was responding to a volley of questions on the surrender of Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign manager, who has been indicted on 12 counts by a special counsel investigating into alleged Russian interference into last year's presidential elections.

She said Trump hasn't changed his principles on a tax overhaul.

Apparently, Papadopoulos is co-operating with special prosecutor Robert Mueller and supplying records of meetings with Russian officials to "get dirt" on Hillary Clinton and subsequent meetings with high-ranking Trump officials to allegedly relay that information.

Papadopoulos sent a "High-Ranking Campaign Official" an email titled "New message from Russia" back in June 2016, in which he said the Russian ministry of foreign affairs wanted to meet with either Trump or a campaign official in an off-the-record capacity, according to the prosecutors' statement.
