White House on Mueller Investigation: 'Facts Are on Our Side'

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders will address the media at 1 p.m.

He told the Federal Bureau of Investigation a London-based professor had "told him about the Russians possessing "dirt" on then-candidate Hillary Clinton in the form of 'thousands of emails, ' but stated multiple times that he learned that information prior to joining the campaign", according to court documents.

Both the Manafort charges and the Papadopoulos case are part of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign colluded with the foreign power to win the election.

In a stunning moment Huckabee Sanders actually described former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who worked for the campaign for more than five months, as someone who was hired "to handle the delegate process. and he was dismissed not too long after that".

Mueller's office also unsealed a guilty plea from George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign adviser.

Mr. Papadopoulos's offers were repeatedly rebuffed by the campaign, although one official told him to go to Russian Federation in order to gather dirt about Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

"Today's announcement has nothing to do with the president, has nothing to do with the president's campaign", Sander said.

Speaking of Papadopoulos's role, she said: "It was extremely limited, it was a volunteer position".

"It has to do with his failure to tell the truth".

"What Papadopoulos did was lie and that's on him, not the campaign", said Mrs. Sanders.

The professor, the statement indicates, had "substantial connections to Russian government officials" even though Papadopoulos claimed the professor was "a nothing".

By Lalit K Jha Washington, Oct 30 (PTI) The White House today claimed that there is clear evidence that former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton colluded with Russian Federation to spread wrong information about President Donald Trump.

"Chief of Staff John Kelly said this special counsel investigation has been very distracting for the president".

Sanders said that the White House isn't expecting such differences of vision to delay the tax package, which Congress will begin considering in earnest this week. She said the White House still expects Mueller's investigation to end "soon".
