Man With ISIS-Like Halloween Costume Sparks Panic at Mall

George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, pleaded guilty to making false statements to FBI agents, special counsel Robert Mueller announced yesterday.

On "America's Newsroom," Fox News correspondent James Rosen shed some light on the details surrounding the Russia-linked professor with whom Papadopoulos lied about having contacted.

According to court documents, Papadopoulos' false statements concerned his contact in the spring of 2016 with a London-based professor who claimed to be connected with high-level Kremlin officials. 

The professor spoke of the Kremlin possessing "dirt" on Hillary Clinton in the form of "thousands of emails."

Rosen reported that Papadopoulos tried to broker a meeting between Russian officials and Trump, but a top campaign official, believed to be Paul Manafort, rejected the idea.

The Telegraph has identified the professor as Joseph Mifsud, honorary director of the London Academy of Diplomacy, an affiliate of University of Stirling in Scotland.

Mifsud characterized the claims against him as "incredible," and called it a "laughingstock" that he attempted to introduce Papadopoulos to a female relative of Vladimir Putin.

The unsealed documents indicate that Papadopoulos has been cooperating with Mueller's investigators since being arrested in July at Dulles Airport in D.C. 

President Trump downplayed the role of Papadopoulos in the campaign and called him a "liar."
