Ex-Trump campaign adviser pleads guilty to making false statement

"We respect Mr. Clovis' decision to withdraw his nomination", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement to pool reporters.

In a letter dated Wednesday and obtained by Politico, Sam Clovis said that he was "eternally grateful and humbled" by the president's nomination.

"Jeff Sessions concealed his meetings with the Russians and he had an obligation to be more forthcoming about meetings that involved Papadopoulos", said Sen.

"The relentless assaults on you and your team seem to be a blood sport that only increases in intensity each day", Clovis wrote. "As I am focused on your success and the success of this administration, I do not want to be a distraction or negative influence, particularly with so much important work left to do for the American people", Clovis also wrote.

Sessions immediately rejected the proposal to arrange a meeting and thought that put an end to the idea, according to a person familiar with the matter who asked not to be identified commenting on private discussions.

UN Atomic Chief Says Iran Implementing Nuclear Commitments
However, the US administration's repositioning on the deal has emboldened hardliners in Iran were against the accord. Salehi said that Iran could resume uranium enrichment of 20 percent within four days if it wished.

Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts, R-Kan., had told reporters that the hearing would be held November 9, but his office has said the details were still being worked out.

J.D. Gordon, a former Pentagon spokesman and Trump campaign national security adviser who attended the meeting, told CNN he was "surprised to learn this week what George Papadopoulos was up to during the campaign".

All three men were investigated as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation to secure the former reality-TV star's victory over Hillary Clinton a year ago.

Court documents unsealed Monday revealed that Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in early October to making false statement to FBI investigators about his contacts with foreigners claiming to have high-level Russian connections.

In September 2016, the Russian Interfax News Agency interviewed Papadopoulos, where he said that the election of Trump would "restore the trust" between the USA and Russia.

She also said that Clovis would have had no authority to prohibit personal travel.

It was, he said, "the first time I'm aware of" in which an FBI director had performed the traditional role of Justice Department prosecutors by announcing on his own the conclusion of a federal investigation - that no charges would be brought against Clinton.

Clovis was a professor of economics at Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa, before he joined the Trump campaign. Also there were Trump and his son-in-law and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner. The charges against Manafort and Rick Gates, who both pleaded not guilty, are related to alleged activity that doesn't appear to involve the Trump campaign.

The position for which Clovis was nominated has traditionally been held by individuals with advanced degrees in science or medicine.

"There's no way he would fight this or cause trouble for the White House", a Republican official and longtime associate of Clovis said. Clovis, who is not a trained scientist, is a climate change skeptic who has said protecting gay rights could lead to the legalization of pedophilia. Likewise, he called Obama a "Maoist" and said Attorney General Eric Holder is a "racist black".
