Carter Page Told Jeff Sessions 'in Passing' About Russia Trip

Carter Page Told Jeff Sessions 'in Passing' About Russia Trip

Page, who left the Trump campaign not long after the trip, has been questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and has also appeared before a grand jury as part of the special counsel Robert Mueller's inquiry.

After the trip, the foreign policy adviser sent an email to at least one Trump campaign aide.

Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page said Friday that he had told Attorney General Jeff Sessions "in passing" - and "mentioned it to a few other people" - about a planned trip to Moscow last summer during the presidential campaign.

"Sessions should come back before [the Senate Judiciary Committee]", Schumer said on The Rachel Maddow Show.

"Understandably, it was as irrelevant then as it is now", Page told CNN.

Sessions made similar denials in two subsequent hearings before Congress on Russian Federation since taking office.

In numerous media interviews in recent months, the adviser, Carter Page, has either denied meeting Russian government officials during a July 2016 trip to Moscow or said he met "mostly scholars", the newspaper said. The Minnesota Democrat said the latest disclosure suggests that the American people "cannot trust your word".




Leahy echoed that concern, saying Papadopoulos' account was "impossible to reconcile with the attorney general's appearance before the [Senate] Judiciary Committee just two weeks ago".

"He needs to clarify his testimony before our committee", Judiciary Committee member Sen.

"He heard him out", JD Gordon, a campaign national security adviser who attended the March 31, 2016 meeting, told CNN Thursday. Coal industry advocate tapped for mining regulator Bipartisan groups call on DOJ to scrutinize AT&T-Time Warner merger MORE "absolutely" committed perjury in his Senate testimony on contacts between President Trump's campaign and Russian officials.

The New York Times, citing an anonymous campaign aide who attended the meeting, said Trump "listened with interest" to Papadopoulos' pitch and asked several questions.

In his traditional Friday appearance on Shepard Smith Reporting, Wallace noted that a new Attorney General might be inclined to get involved in the Russian Federation probe, which Sessions has recused himself from.

The White House has moved to distance itself from Papadopoulos.

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.
