Trump campaign adviser Page met Russian officials in 2016 Moscow trip

Sam Clovis Yanks Nom As Top USDA Scientist After Revealed To Be “Campaign Supervisor” In Rob Mueller Indictments Exclusive: Carter Page testifies he told Sessions about Russia trip

Sessions has been dogged over his testimony before Congress about interactions with Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign. "When they can't keep their stories straight, it does seems very suspicious to me, so I want the Attorney General to answer questions". But on Thursday, the person familiar with Sessions' recollections said, "the attorney general has no clear recollection of this person". If Sessions were pushed out, it would give Trump the chance to appoint a new attorney general - who would have the authority to fire Mueller and take over the Russian Federation probe.

"I don't know", Trump told reporters Friday on the White House lawn as he prepared to board Marine One for the first leg of trip to Asia. The email went to "several members of the Campaign's foreign policy team", prosecutors alleged.

The March 24, 2016 email in question was highlighted in the plea agreement Papadopoulos entered into after lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about the extent of his contacts with individuals like Joseph Mifsud, a London-based professor of diplomacy who allegedly spent months trying to connect Papadopoulos with Russian officials. Revelations that the attorney general was previously in a meeting with former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos and was told about Page's trips to Russian Federation have been raised by lawmakers as a subject of further inquiry.

Court documents said Clovis told Papadopoulos: "Great work".

"The attorney general needs to explain to our committee what are the obvious implications of his presence at that meeting, and how he can square that with his testimony to our committee", said Sen.

Qualcomm suit claims Apple breached contract, shared proprietary info with Intel

Franken asked: "If there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?"

Last month, Sessions told the same committee he was not aware of any Trump surrogates having contacts with Russian officials.

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".

"It might be worth writing a letter and saying 'What happened?' I wouldn't mind writing a letter, because he was pretty definitive he never had that discussion about Russia", Graham of SC said in an interview. It is rare to see cases for perjury to Congress generally because the exchanges are often imprecise or rather fluid in nature.

A source at the Department of Justice confirmed to HuffPost that Sessions spoke out against the idea.
