White House Brushes Off Former Aide's Guilty Plea

	White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders speaks during the daily press briefing Friday Oct. 27 2017 in Washington

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

Sanders would not comment on whether Mr. Trump regrets hiring certain members of the campaign, including former 2016 campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his former business associate Rick Gates, who were both indicted Monday morning on 12 separate counts, including conspiracy against the United States.

Although White House special counsel Ty Cobb said Trump is "spending all of his time on presidential work", sources close to the president said his "anger Monday was visible to those who interacted with him, and the mood in the corridors of the White House was one of weariness and fear of the unknown".

George Papadopoulos, a member of the campaign's foreign policy advisory, pleaded guilty on October 5 for lying to federal officials about his connections to individuals with alleged ties to the Russian government, according to court documents released Monday.

The analyst firm recorded 40 percent annual growth for Apple in Q3 2017 with 11 million shipments during the three-month period. Jia stated that even though the device would launch this week, the pricing structure and supply issues will restrain growth.

Sanders was also asked how well she knew Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty earlier this month to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents who are investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

All of the charges fell short of implicating Mr. Trump or campaign officials in conspiring with Russian Federation to affect the outcome of the election.

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?" Trump spent much of Monday watching TV upstairs in his private residence, "seething", a Republican close to the White House tells CNN.

"We believe that it will be concluded soon", she said. Earlier today, a report from Bloomberg News said the House was considering phasing in proposed cuts to corporate taxes over five years.
