WASHINGTON (AP) — George Papadopoulos, the former Trump campaign adviser who triggered the Russia investigation, is willing to testify before the Senate intelligence committee, Thomas Breen, his lawyer, said Wednesday.

Now that the criminal case is resolved, Breen said, “we’ll make him available upon a proper request.” Papadopoulos was sentenced to 14 days in prison Friday for lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russian intermediaries.

Breen’s comments come after Papadopoulos tweeted on Wednesday to Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., and the top Democrat on the panel, Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, that he would testify if his lawyers approved. The panel is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether President Donald Trump’s campaign was involved.

The tweet was one of several since the sentencing as Papadopoulos has vented anger with the FBI and implied he was set up in the investigation. He said on Twitter that he would like to talk to the committee about his “suspicious encounters” with an Australian diplomat and a missing professor who were links to his case.

2. HE's been tweeting a bunch of things

Hard to follow-- sometimes it was exculpatory, sometimes confessional. Seth Abrahamson even said he should stop, he was endangering his case.

He was darkly hinting those evil Aussies set him up and sent the diplomat to trap him.

6. He is a yo yo.

One day he says he will cooperate and the next day he says he won't. What a moron. Same with his Italian/Russian(?) wife.
