Trump campaign aide met Russian officials in 2016: NY Times

According to documents unsealed Monday, Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty to making a false statement to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, frequently communicated with Russians about arranging a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, and even pitched a potential summit to Sessions and Trump at a meeting of the then-candidate's foreign policy team on March 31, 2016. Jeff Sessions as well as "a few people" on the Trump campaign. The trip was "completely unrelated to my limited volunteer role with the campaign and as I've done dozens of times throughout my life".

Sessions' failure to disclose those meetings ultimately led to his recusal from the Justice Department's Russian Federation investigation, and functioned as one of the many missteps that triggered the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller. Earlier this year, Jeff Sessions, though, testified before Congress that he had no awareness of any Russian connections during the campaign.

"It was terrific to have the opportunity to help clear the record as to the falsehoods from the dodgy dossier, which started this whole thing against me in the final two months before the election", Page told reporters after his marathon session, referring to the Trump-Russia dossier produced by former British agent Christopher Steele.

Josh Chafetz, a professor at Cornell University Law School, said lawmakers could try to use "various other tools in the congressional arsenal", from reducing Justice Department appropriations to refusing to confirm appointees reporting to him. He said one of the people he met was a "senior person", but would not confirm the person's identity.

Franken asked: "If there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?"

A source familiar with Sessions' comments to Congress told ABC News the attorney general "has been entirely truthful and consistent on this matter".

Reported testimony from former campaign policy adviser Carter Page only adds to questions about what Sessions knew.

"He needs to clarify his testimony before our committee", Judiciary Committee member Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican, asked Sessions: "Did anybody in the campaign, did you ever overhear a conversation between you and anybody on the campaign who talked about meeting with the Russians?" He wasn't aware of any ongoing exchanges of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government, the person said. Papadopoulos made the offer during a meeting that both Sessions and Mr. Trump attended in March 2016.

Russian Federation says it did not interfere in the election and Trump has denied any collusion.
