"All I can say is my testimony might have helped move something towards that".
Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos, wife of former Trump campaign foreign policy aide George Papadopoulos, said in an exclusive live interview with her husband on "This Week" Sunday that her worldwide political background raised "a red flag" for us investigators.
He pleaded guilty in October to making false statements to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about his interactions with a Russian national and the Maltese professor.
The Trump campaign adviser who triggered the Russian Federation investigation will find out Friday whether he will be going to prison for lying to the FBI.
Papadopoulos, 31, was an inexperienced London-based oil analyst when he joined the Trump campaign in March 2016 on the Republican candidate's national security advisory board. He hasn't returned since.
"I made a terrible mistake but I am a good..." "I hope to have a second chance to redeem myself".
Russian Federation has denied US allegations that it interfered in the campaign and President Trump denies campaign collusion.
Papadopoulos brought the idea up at a campaign meeting with Trump and future Attorney General Jeff Sessions, with Sessions later testifying before Congress that he had "pushed back" against the idea.

After Moss sentenced him, Papadopoulos could be seen in the courtroom embracing his wife, whispering into her ear, as reporters and members of the public slowly filed out.
Already at that time, Breen noted, Trump was calling the allegations of Russian interference in the election "fake news" and a "political witch hunt" - terms he continues to use for the Mueller probe.
United States investigators were only alerted to Papadopoulos's activities in mid-2016 after he told Australia's ambassador to London, Alexander Downer, about his talks with Mifsud during a late-night drinking session in a London pub.
According to Bloomberg News, the committee indicated that an investigator had been used to find Mifsud, who had disappeared for months, and was told the Maltese professor may be dead.
Papadopoulos said Trump gave "a sort of a nod" when he raised the idea of the meeting, but that Sessions was "actually enthusiastic" about it taking place.
According to the New York Times, George Papadopoulos played a key role in sparking the FBI's probe of Donald Trump's contacts with Russian Federation after he told a diplomat that Russian Federation had dirt on Hillary Clinton.
In October, Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the timings of his meetings with a Kremlin-linked professor.
Papadopoulos also made a similar claim about Sessions last week in court. Papadopoulos says he had nothing to do with the leak.
He will also have one year of supervised release.
