George Papadopoulos On A Pardon And Why He Tried To Contact Russia
In this interview with Newsy, he says he reached out to make contacts with Russia reluctantly and only because President Trump wanted it.
George Papadopoulos — the first Trump presidential campaign aide charged in the Mueller probe — spoke with Newsy on Tuesday.
In this interview with Newsy's Chance Seales, Papadopoulos says he was reluctant to establish contacts with Russia.
"But I was working with a candidate that wanted to work with Russia," says Papadopoulos, "so I felt like it was part of my job to do my best to make something happen, whether I personally agreed or I didn't."
Newsy will have more of Papadopoulos' interview Tuesday night on "The Why."
"The Why" airs Mondays through Thursdays from 7-9 p.m. ET on the Newsy channel. Click here to check local listings.
