"I made a terrible mistake but I am a good man".
Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about the timing and significance of his contacts with the Russians.
Defense lawyer Thomas Breen said his client was affected by Trump's cries of "fake news" ahead of the interview and was torn between wanting to cooperate with investigators and wanting to remain loyal to the president.
Moss said he had planned to give Papadopoulos a 30-day term but was persuaded by his courtroom expression of remorse to reduce the sentence.
In court Friday, prosecutor Andrew Goldstein said Papadopoulos's cooperation "didn't come close to the standard of substantial assistance". "I respect the, I always said I respect Mueller's interest in my profile because clearly it's quite alarming, the fact that I marry George Papadopoulos in the middle of this storm", Mangiante Papadopoulos said.
George Papadopoulos was the Trump campaign adviser who triggered the Russian Federation investigation.
The young political operative maintains that he never alerted the Trump campaign about the Russian dirt.

It's stunning enough to have a former campaign aide to the president of the United States sentenced as part of a foreign counterintelligence investigation.
But the attorney said "the president of the United States hindered this investigation more than Papadopoulos ever could". He emphasized that Papadopoulos' lies to investigators came a week after Trump's inauguration, at a time when the onetime policy aide was seeking a senior role in the administration and the president had begun dismissing the Russian Federation investigation as a lie.
Papadopoulos apparently raised the possibility of setting up a meeting between Trump and Putin during a national security meeting in March 2016. "No Collusion. A great day for America!"
"14 days for $28 MILLION - $2 MILLION a day, No Collusion".
Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, just handed a 14-day prison sentence for lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, detailed multiple run-ins with shady foreign operatives in a CNN interview.
Sessions has claimed he opposed the idea, but Papadopoulos continued to discuss the idea with top campaign officials over the following months.
He said he lied not to impede investigation but "to preserve a perhaps misguided loyalty to his master". Jeff Sessions "appeared to also like the idea and stated that the campaign should look into it".
A hearing on the DNC lawsuit is scheduled for September 13 in Manhattan federal court.
Before he was sentenced, Papadopoulos spoke to Judge Randy Moss for about three minutes, reading a speech in which he admitted he was wrong, ashamed and regretful. "Of course I'm remorseful, I'm contrite and I did lie [to the FBI] but you know you're just taken off guard, I guess, in such a momentous occasion where you're potentially sitting there incriminating the president".
