Mueller uses George Papadopoulos’ tweets against him in court filing

“Following the defendant’s sentencing, he made a variety of public statements that appear to be inconsistent with his stated acceptance of responsibility at sentencing,” they wrote.

In one instance prosecutors pointed to, Papadopoulos tweeted from his public Twitter account that the FBI’s investigation was “the biggest case of entrapment!” The next day, Papadopoulos said he was considering withdrawing his guilty plea because he believed he was framed.

Several days later, he tweeted that he had been sentenced “while having exculpatory evidence hidden from me.”

…And on November 9, prosecutors wrote, Papadopoulos tweeted that his “biggest regret” was pleading guilty.

…His lawyers argued in their motion that he should be allowed to stay out of prison “pending appeal,” but Mueller’s office said there is no pending appeal in his case.
