Report: Former Trump Campaign Adviser George Papadopoulos Is Heading To Prison

Papadopoulos was sentenced back in September for lying to the FBI about their probe into the Russian meddling into the 2016 presidential election. His sentence was put off until an appeals court ruled on the constitutionality behind the appoint of special council Robert Mueller.

U.S. District Court Judge Randolph Moss on Sunday said Papadopoulos waited too long to serve his sentence. It was also unlikely that an appellate court would rule against Mueller's appointment. So far, four separate judges have upheld his appointment. 

Part of his plea agreement was contingent upon the the understanding that he could not appeal his sentencing. He did, however, file an appeal on Nov. 16, more than two months after the deadline to appeal his conviction and/or sentence. He then requested a delay in his sentencing.

“Papadopoulos waited until the eleventh hour to seek relief; indeed, he did not file his second motion — the stay request — until the last business day before he was scheduled to surrender to serve his sentence,” Moss’ order states. “He has only his own delay to blame.
