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

  • Former Trump adviser's guilty plea could rattle White House- Donald Trump

"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.

"I was one of many people on that email chain", the perpetually chatty Page told CNN's Jake Tapper in an on-air interview.

Page said he told Sessions that "I'm glad I was able to meet you before I head to Moscow".

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.

During his confirmation hearing in January, Sessions told Sen. He said one of the people he met was a "senior person", but would not confirm the person's identity.

Sam Clovis was the first of President Trump's nominees to withdraw from consideration after he was among the names of President Trump's campaign officials involved with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe.

Sessions' testimony directly contradicts an Federal Bureau of Investigation affidavit that alleges former Trump adviser George Papadopoulos spoke directly with Sessions about potentially arranging a meeting with then-candidate Trump during the 2016 election.

Last month he reiterated he did not know of any Trump campaign official having contact with Russian officials - a claim Senate Democrats are pushing back on.

"I only had a few e-mails in my inbox from him". "There were questions that elicited exactly the kind of information that the Papadopoulos plea agreement made".

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.
