"What Papadopoulos did was lie and that's on him, not the campaign", said Mrs. Sanders.
The guilty plea by Mr. Papadopoulos and a 20-count indictment against Paul Manafort, a former Trump campaign chairman, gave special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe momentum this week and put the White House on defense against allegations of collusion with the Kremlin during the 2016 presidential race.
Dodging the question, she replied: "I'm telling you he was a volunteer member of an advisory council that literally met one time".
Another one of CNN's fact checks sought to clarify what George Papadopoulos's role was on Trump's presidential campaign.

Sanders emphasized that she's "not sure that the president recalls specific details" of a March 31 national security team meeting at Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.in which Papadopoulos was present.
The professor, the statement indicates, had "substantial connections to Russian government officials" even though Papadopoulos claimed the professor was "a nothing".
"It has nothing to do with the campaign's activities", she said of Papadopoulos' plea.
Sanders said she was not aware of the specific individuals, but she believes he is an example of somebody doing the wrong thing, while the Trump campaign did the right thing by voluntarily turning over emails to special counsel Robert Mueller, an action that ultimately led to Papadopoulos' arrest and guilty plea.
"We believe that it will be concluded soon", she said.
