Trump says recalls little about meeting where aide mentioned Russian Federation

"I changed my travel plans to go to Russian Federation'".

"Let's remember that this is about Russian interference in our election and that is at the very heart of our system of democracy and we're trying to find out whether the Trump campaign cooperated", Franken said. Some members said his testimony will help move the investigation forward, though Page told the committee that the Trump campaign made him sign a non-disclosure agreement.

The attorney general has since said that he interpreted questions from Franken and other senators to be about whether he knew of continuous, improper contacts between Trump surrogates and Russian operatives, and that he didn't. "I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I didn't have - did not have communications with the Russians, and I'm unable to comment on it".

KEITH: And then, this morning, he promptly said that he is also disappointed in the Justice Department.

Conaway said that Page was "fulsome" in his answers and he answered all of the questions the committee asked. "I'm glad the truth is finally becoming known".

The Washington Post also reported earlier this week that Papadopoulos sat next to Sessions during a dinner at the Capitol Hill Club for campaign advisers weeks before the Republican National Convention, according to another person who attended. A source told NBC on Thursday night that Sessions rejected Papadopoulos' proposal to set up a meeting between then-presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Mueller's investigators on Monday arrested Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign manager, and former business associate Richard Gates, on a 12-count indictment charging them with conspiracy and money laundering. Al Franken, D-Minn., asked the attorney general nominee what he would do "if there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign".

In another exchange with Democratic Sen.

There is interest from Democrats on both the Senate intelligence and judiciary committees for Sessions to formally clarify his remarks made before both committees given what's now known about his interactions with Papadopoulos, a Senate aide told CNN.

"I don't know", Sessions responded.

Blumenthal wrote Sessions that he should "immediately come before the Senate Judiciary Committee to update [his] testimony and correct any omissions and any statements that may have been incorrect or misleading".

At his Senate confirmation hearing in January, Sessions denied any contacts with Russian officials during the presidential campaign.

Page traveled to Moscow for a few days in early July 2016, where he gave a lecture critical of USA foreign policy and later met with Russians whom he described as academic scholars and business leaders.
