At one point during Monday's daily press briefing Huckabee Sanders literally refused to mention that Paul Manafort was the campaign chairman.
Court documents unsealed Monday show he admitted to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about meetings with Russian intermediaries.
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.

Meanwhile, CNN's fact check read: "Reality check: Papadopoulos' role", and listed that Trump had in the past cited Papadopoulos as an "excellent guy" and that Papadopoulos had attended "at least one meeting".

"There are no activities or official capacity in which the Trump campaign was engaged in any of these activities".
She reiterated that the "real collusion scandal" involves the Clinton campaign, Fusion GPS and Russian Federation working to "smear" Trump. The dossier relied on a Russian government official and a Russian spy for information. 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.
"We believe that it will be concluded soon", she said.
