specifically involves trump campaign ties to russia. this comes from george papadopoulos, the campaign's former foreign policy adviser. he admitted he lied to the fbi about his communications with russians and now we are hearing that he is indeed cooperating with authorities, could even more charges be filed against these two men? paul manafort who led the trump campaign for four months and his business associate rick gates who also worked on the campaign. the two just pleaded not guilty in court. right around the same time that that white house held its press briefing. >> today's announcement has nothing to do with the president, has nothing to do with the president's campaign or campaign activity. the real collusion scandal as we've said several times before has everything to do with the clinton campaign, fusion gps and russia. there's clear evidence of the clinton campaign colluding with russian intelligence to spread disinformation and smear the president to influence the election. we've been saying from day one there's been no evidence of trump-russia collusion and nothing in the indictmen
