Trump says recalls little about meeting where aide mentioned Russian Federation

"It was a very unimportant meeting - took place a long time - don't remember much about it".

"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.

"He heard him out", JD Gordon, a campaign national security adviser who attended the March 31, 2016 meeting, told CNN Thursday.

The meeting in question occurred on March 31, 2016. "If I were Sessions, I wouldn't have recalled it either". An Instagram picture on Trump's account shows Sessions attended the meeting at which Papadopoulos made the suggestion.

His critics pointed to an exchange he had with South Carolina 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. It was subsequently revealed that he had conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Conaway said that Page was "fulsome" in his answers and he answered all of the questions the committee asked.

KEITH: Yeah. And he's - every time you ask about Russian Federation, he says, but what about the Democrats?

On the other hand, games that output at 1440p will be supersampled down to 1080p when the console is connected to a FHD display. We're learning today that the Xbox One X doesn't merely make a "4K or 1080p" proposition.

During his January 10 confirmation hearing, Sessions said he was "not aware" of anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign coordinating with the Russian government when asked about such ties by Franken. Al Franken, D-Minn., that he had no communications with Russian officials during the campaign.

"Sen. Franken, I'm not aware of any of those activities".

Under pressure, Sessions later recused himself from the Department of Justice investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The source said Sessions was not aware that Papadopoulos had been offered "dirt" on Clinton or emails.

A source close to Sessions defended the attorney general, promising he "has been entirely truthful and consistent on this matter".

Sessions' discussion with Page will fuel further scrutiny about what the attorney general knew about connections between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation - and communications about Russian Federation that he did not disclose despite a persistent line of questioning in three separate hearings this year.

Trump on Friday repeated his urgings that the Justice Department and FBI investigate Clinton. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that he held an "extremely limited" role in the campaign and described him as a "volunteer" that did nothing in an "official capacity". Timofeev represented that he was close to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. And whether it becomes a problem for him or not may just depend on President Trump and also on Congress. Democrats in the Senate are demanding that Sessions come back and explain this discrepancy - how he could have been in the room for a meeting where someone said this thing and then said he knew nothing about Russian connections during the campaign.

"He now needs to come back before the Committee, in person, under oath, to explain why he can not seem to provide truthful, complete answers to these important and relevant questions", Leahy, a former chairman of the Judiciary Committee, told The New York Times.
