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.

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".
