And he was part of a list that was read out in the Washington Post. "There's clear evidence of the Clinton campaign colluding with Russian intelligence to spread disinformation and smear the President to influence the election".

Tuesday's White House press briefing focused mainly on questions about Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation, which White House Chief of Staff John Kelly called "very distracting" to the president, according to The Hill.

"The President said last week, I believe it was last week, and I've said it several times before, there is no intention or plan to make any changes in regards to the special counsel", Sanders said.

Additionally, Sanders' repetition of the word "volunteer" to show reduced significance rings hollow in light of the fact Manafort also worked on the campaign for free and is now accused of, amongst other things, "conspiracy against the US".

Sanders was then asked by a reporter: "So his activities were entirely of his invention, no one asked him to do any of these things - is that what you're telling the American public?"

The White House on Tuesday said it was the Trump campaign that gave the feds the goods on George Papadopoulos, a low-level campaign aide who pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about dealings with Russian Federation.

Mrs. Sanders said that the Trump campaign has always fully cooperated with the investigation, including turning over all of Mr. Papadopoulos's emails.

"It has nothing to do with the campaign, it has to do with his failure to tell the truth". That doesn't have anything to do with the campaign or the campaign's activities.

Throughout the briefing, Sanders continued to distance the Trump campaign from the activities of Manafort, Gates and Papadopoulos.

She responded that he was a campaign volunteer who played a minimal role.

"Majority took place well before the campaign ever even existed", she asserted.
