Another week has brought another round of new developments in the Russia investigation. Although former Trump adviser¬†George Papadopoulos had sought to delay the start of his prison sentence while challenging Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s authority, this weekend, Federal District Judge Randy Moss shot down those requests and asserted that he must report for his two weeks behind bars Monday morning.

CNN reporter Jim Acosta — fresh off a victory against the Trump administration in regaining his press access to the White House via the court system — was among those to share the news.

Papadopoulos originally pleaded guilty late last year to lying to authorities about his role in the Trump campaign’s connections with Russia. He had personally interacted with Russian Professor Joseph Mifsud about emails the Kremlin stole from the Democrats, but he concealed key details about those interactions during initial questioning, seeking to cushion the Trump campaign against federal scrutiny.

That didn’t pay off.

In the time since his sentencing, he has taken — along with his former boss, President Donald Trump — to peddling conspiracy theories while his legal team fought unsuccessfully for him in court. He’s claimed, for instance, that he was set up all the way back at an initial meeting with Australian diplomat Alexander Downer at which the young aide shared key info that snowballed into the Russia scandal.

There’s no evidence he was set up.

There are sentencing dates for at least a couple of other former Trump associates on the horizon. Former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn will be sentenced in December and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort will be sentenced in February.
