Former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, who was considering withdrawing his plea deal after special counsel prosecutors recommended a six-month jail sentence, has decided to stick with the agreement after all, his wife told ABC News

“George will take responsibility for some inaccuracies during the interview with the FBI,” Mangiante Papadopoulos said in a statement to ABC News on Wednesday, adding that she hopes the judge will not send her husband to jail.

Mueller’s prosecutors recommended jail time because they said Papadopoulos “caused damage” to the investigation by misleading investigators.

In October, Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about conversations he had with a professor, identified in news reports as Joseph Mifsud, who said he had dirt on Hillary Clinton.

FBI Rejects Claims Peddled by Trump That China Hacked Clinton’s Email Server

The FBI is publicly rejecting a right-wing report that was amplified by President Trump, essentially calling it fake news.

The right-leaning news site The Daily Caller reported on Monday that China hacked Hillary Clinton’s private email server and obtained thousands of emails while she was secretary of state.

Trump retweeted the story, saying “Report just out: ‘China hacked Hillary Clinton’s private Email Server.’ Are they sure it wasn’t Russia (just kidding!)? What are the odds that the FBI and DOJ are right on top of this? Actually, a very big story. Much classified information!” the president tweeted.

An FBI spokesman told NBC News, “The FBI has not found any evidence the servers were compromised.” 

The spokesman pointed to an inspector general’s report that quoted a forensic analyst telling the Justice Department that he was “fairly confident” Clinton’s server had not been comprised.
