Former Trump campaign volunteer, George Papadopoulos said he would like to testify in front of the Senate about his “suspicious encounters” with certain individuals he met throughout the 2016 election.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Papadopoulos wrote that he would testify about his interactions with Australian diplomat, Alexander Downer, FBI informant, Stefan Halper, “Putin’s niece,” Maltese academic, Joseph Misfud, as well as other U.S. officials who reached out to him. In a second tweet, the former campaign advisor claimed that US intelligence officials, Gregory Baker and Terrence Dudley “both wanted to ingratiate themselves” into the Trump campaign through Papadopoulos.

Papadopoulos was sentenced last week to 14 days in federal prison for lying to the FBI, after becoming a central figure in the Mueller probe. He was also given 12 months probation, 200 hours of community service, and was ordered to pay a $9,500 fine.

Papadopolous’ attorney, Thomas Breen, confirmed his client’s tweet, saying, “we’ll make him available upon a proper request.”
