George Papadopoulos, a former advisor in President Donald Trump’s campaign, has been ordered to prison by a federal judge who denied his plea for a stay.
Papadopoulos was convicted and ordered to serve a 14-day sentence after he was prosecuted by special counsel Robert Mueller, The Daily Mail reported.
The judge who ordered Papadopoulos to prison, Randolph Daniel Moss, was appointed by former President Obama.
Papadopoulos must surrender to agents on Monday to start his 14-day sentence for lying to FBI agents working on special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
U.S. District Court Judge Randy Moss said Papadopoulos’s legal arguments fell short of what was needed to justify delaying the sentence that was handed down in September, Politico reported.
Papadopoulos lawyers argued that the former Trump adviser should be granted a ‘modest stay’ until an appellate court rules in a separate case challenging the legality of Mueller’s appointment.
But Moss rejected that argument, which he called an “11th hour” request, writing in a 13-page ruling that even if the challenge to Mueller’s appointment was successful – and he doubted it would be – that would unlikely give Papadopoulos cause to undo his own conviction, according to The Washington Post.
