CNN fact-checks White House briefing in real time

The guilty plea by Mr. Papadopoulos and a 20-count indictment against Paul Manafort, a former Trump campaign chairman, gave special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe momentum this week and put the White House on defense against allegations of collusion with the Kremlin during the 2016 presidential race.

"It has nothing to do with the campaign's activities", she said of Papadopoulos' plea.

The White House has acknowledged this one meeting as there is photographic evidence of it from Trump's own Instagram account (Papadopoulos is third from left). And he was part of a list that was read out in the Washington Post.

At the time Trump described him as an "excellent guy" so was clearly familiar with his work.

Manafort and Gates have pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Ruling out changing the special counsel Robert Mueller, the former FBI Director, at this time, she hoped that the investigations would conclude soon.

This season Miller was having quite a nice year thus far on the field catching passes from rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky . Head coach John Fox announced after the game that Miller had a dislocated knee and is now at the hospital.

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

The Press Secretary also repeated Trump's current favourite go-to line, that the real investigation should be about Hillary Clinton, Uranium One and the pee dossier. "There's clear evidence of the Clinton campaign colluding with Russian intelligence to spread disinformation and smear the President to influence the election".

"He asked to do things, he was basically pushed back or not responded to in any way", Sanders said of Papadopoulos' efforts within the campaign, which included sending out emails that offered to set up "a meeting between us and the Russian leadership to discuss U.S. -Russia ties under President Trump".

Court documents released Monday showed that Papadopoulos lied to federal agents about his contacts with a professor whom he knew had substantial links to the Russian government.

Trump had been expecting the Manafort indictment, but was taken off guard by the news that Papadopoulos had been cooperating with Mueller.

A Trump campaign supervisor encouraged Papadopoulos to make the trip "if it is feasible" on August 15, 2016.
