George Papadopoulos — the first Trump presidential campaign aide charged in the Mueller probe — spoke with Newsy on Tuesday.
In this interview with Newsy's Chance Seales, Papadopoulos says he was reluctant to establish contacts with Russia.
"But I was working with a candidate that wanted to work with Russia," says Papadopoulos, "so I felt like it was part of my job to do my best to make something happen, whether I personally agreed or I didn't."
Newsy will have more of Papadopoulos' interview Tuesday night on "The Why."
"The Why" airs Mondays through Thursdays from 7-9 p.m. ET on the Newsy channel. Click here to check local listings.
