"There's clear evidence of the Clinton campaign colluding with Russian intelligence to spread disinformation and smear the president to influence the election", Sanders said.
"It was a volunteer position", Sanders said of Papadopoulos' role in the campaign.
"He reached out and nothing happened beyond that - which, I think, shows, one, his level of importance in the campaign, and, two, shows what little role he had within coordinating anything officially for the campaign", Sarah Sanders, President Trump's press secretary told reporters.
A Trump campaign supervisor encouraged Papadopoulos to make the trip "if it is feasible" on August 15, 2016.
The other news that broke Monday from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged Russian collusion was that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and campaign aide Rick Gates were indicated for a litany of financial crimes.
According to court documents, Papadopolous' false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation concerned his contact with a professor with connections to the Russian government about "thousands of emails" that could damage Hillary Clinton.

Sanders said during Monday's White House press briefing that Papadopoulos was simply a "volunteer" like "thousands" of others during the campaign.
Sanders was then asked by a reporter: "So his activities were entirely of his invention, no one asked him to do any of these things - is that what you're telling the American public?"
She reiterated that the "real collusion scandal" involves the Clinton campaign, Fusion GPS and Russian Federation working to "smear" Trump.
All of the charges fell short of implicating Mr. Trump or campaign officials in conspiring with Russian Federation to affect the outcome of the election.
