The fiancée of George Papadopoulos, the former Donald Trump campaign adviser who pleaded guilty to lying, says he is the "John Dean" of the of the Russia investigation.

Simona Mangiante's comments came in an interview published by The Washington Post on Monday.

"I believe history will remember him like John Dean," said Mangiante, who got engaged to Papadopoulos in September.

Dean, the former White House counsel, pleaded guilty in the Watergate coverup and became a major witness against other aides to President Richard Nixon.

Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in October to lying to the FBI about his Russia contacts, the newspaper noted. He is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

"George is very loyal," Mangiante said. "And he is on the right side of history."

She disclosed she was told by lawyers for Papadopoulos not to answer specific questions about his activities during his 10 months he worked as an informal national security adviser to Trump.

But she warned: "There's a lot to come. He was the first one to break a hole on all of this."

Mangiante revealed she also has been interviewed by Mueller's team of investigators.

Papadopoulos was arrested by FBI agents as he stepped off a flight from Germany at Dulles Airport outside Washington last July. By the next morning, Mueller's team told a federal judge Papadopoulos "indicated he is willing to cooperate with the government in its ongoing investigation into Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election."
