"Today's announcement has nothing to do with the president, has nothing to do with the president's campaign or campaign activity", Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said at her Monday afternoon briefing.
Sanders's assertion is at odds with the indictment issued by the Special Counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, which states Papadopoulos was encouraged to meet with Russian officials by campaign officials.
The indictment also said that Papadopoulos was told by the Russian professor in London that the Russians had dirt on Hillary Clinton in the form of thousands of emails. Papadopoulos, Huckabee Sanders claimed had an "extremely limited" role.
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?" "That doesn't have anything to do with the campaign or campaign's activities", she said.
Those emails revealed that Mr. Papadopoulos lied to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about his attempts to arrange meetings between Russian agents, and even Russian President Vladimir Putin, and top officials in the Trump campaign.
Papadopoulos was one of five people announced to be part of Trump's foreign policy team in March of a year ago. The plea details his conversations with campaign officials in trying to set up a meeting between Russian nationals with someone in the Trump campaign-though it's not clear Papadopoulos was ever successful or even taken very seriously by his superiors.
Sanders said that the real Russia collusion scandal is that of the Clinton Campaign and the Democratic National Committee paying for Russian intelligence against their opponent Donald Trump. The dossier relied on a Russian government official and a Russian spy for information. The press secretary said the White House does think it will wrap up soon because the "facts are on our side".
