Democrats Demand Sessions Testify Before Senate Judiciary Committee-Again

Former Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page privately testified Thursday that he mentioned to Jeff Sessions he was traveling to Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign - as new questions emerge about the attorney general's comments to Congress about Russian Federation and the Trump campaign. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) has asked the attorney general to once again appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee following the indictments this week of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his longtime associate Rick Gates as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

"I had a very brief hello to a couple of people".

The source added, "At the time, of course, Papadopoulos was some 29-year old that nobody had ever heard of and who struck people in the room as someone who didn't have a lot of credibility".

President Donald Trump's former campaign national co-chair Sam Clovis has ixnayed his own nomination to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's top scientist post. "As far as Sessions seemed to be concerned, when he shut down this idea of Papadopoulos engaging with Russian Federation, that was the end of it and he moved the meeting along to other issues".

Both Papadopoulos' and Page's statements appear to cast doubt on comments made by Sessions to the Senate multiple times since his confirmation hearing in early January, as well as remarks made by the president.

In testimony before the Senate in June, Sessions said he did not "recall" any meetings between campaign associates and Russian officials. However, news reports from March revealed that Sessions had met twice with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the lead up to the 2016 USA presidential election.

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. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., told The Chicago Tribune.
