Senators on Thursday called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to explain why, during his testimony before various committees, he denied the Trump campaign communicated with Russian officials and failed to disclose that a Trump adviser offered to set up a meeting between the candidate and Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2016.
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.

Sam Clovis, a 25-year Air Force veteran and onetime talk show host from Iowa, served as co-chair and policy adviser to the Trump campaign.
Page also told Tapper that he was not in the March 2016 meeting where Papadopoulos initially suggested the Russian Federation meeting. Court documents reveal Papadopoulos exchanging emails with Clovis where they discuss meetings with Russian officials.
