Senate Dems demand Sessions clarify testimony on Russian Federation
Nov 06, 2017, 00:28
But Pegues reports the court documents unsealed this week claim George Papadopoulos, the former Trump campaign aide who pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts with foreign nationals, offered to set up a meeting with then-candidate Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Trump was also non-committal in response to a question about whether he would fire attorney-general Jeff Sessions, who he has criticised for appointing special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate potential collusion between Trump campaign officials and Russian efforts to manipulate the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
Judiciary Committee Democrats want to question Sessions, who was the Trump campaign's chief foreign policy adviser, about his denials that he knew anything about contacts between the campaign and Russians or Russian government intermediaries.

Also on Thursday, former Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page told Congress in a six-hour, closed-door testimony that he told Sessions he was traveling to Russian Federation during the presidential campaign, according to an account he gave to CNN.
"He needs to clarify his testimony before our committee", Judiciary Committee member Sen.
Page reportedly told House committee members that had mentioned the trip to Sessions, who denied having any knowledge of Trump campaign Russian Federation ties in his Senate confirmation hearing in January. "I am deeply troubled that this newest revelation strongly suggests that the Senate ― and the American public ― can not trust your word". Sessions, who is now the United States attorney general and was an early supporter of Trump's campaign, to say hello and mentioned he was headed to Russian Federation. A post on Trump's Instagram account shows the March 31, 2016, meeting taking place, with the candidate, Sessions and Papadopoulos all present.
Sessions has been quiet on his involvement at the session, despite being asked about it multiple times during several appearances on Capitol Hill.
According to court documents released Monday, Papadopoulos said he was in a meeting with Trump and other advisers, including then-Sen.
Sessions has been dogged over his testimony before Congress about interactions with Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Page said he told Sessions that "I'm glad I was able to meet you before I head to Moscow".
