Senate Dems demand Sessions clarify testimony on Russian Federation

In testimony before the Senate in June, Sessions said he did not "recall" any meetings between campaign associates and Russian officials.

During more than six hours of closed-door testimony, Page said that he informed Sessions about his coming July 2016 trip to Russian Federation, which Page told CNN was unconnected to his campaign role.

On Friday, he told The Times that "I had a very brief hello to a couple of people". Page said the trips were "completely unrelated to my limited volunteer role with the campaign and as I've done dozens of times throughout my life".

Sessions made similar denials in two subsequent hearings before Congress on Russian Federation since taking office.

Sessions' attendance at the meeting was revealed in court documents released Monday by special prosecutor Robert Mueller. "I am deeply troubled that this newest revelation strongly suggests that the Senate ― and the American public ― can not trust your word". "I sent him a letter and I would like for him to come before the judiciary meeting again and explain himself". Among those receiving the email, it has since been reported, was Sam Clovis, who told Papadopoulos: "Great work". "There were questions that elicited exactly the kind of information that the Papadopoulos plea agreement made". Jeff Sessions, when he said "he had connections that could help arrange a meeting between then-candidate Trump and President [Vladimir] Putin". "He was not aware of any continuous exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for Russian government as Sen". Leahy asked Sessions later that month if the attorney general had "been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election".
