Page: I Was On Papadopoulos Email About Linking Russia Up With Campaign

But an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent's affidavit supporting criminal charges against Papadopoulos said he also claimed in an email that top Trump campaign officials, who weren't identified, approved a pre-election meeting with representatives of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Sessions later recused himself from all matters related to the campaign, citing his support for the President's successful bid.

Nonetheless, the court filing on Papadopoulos is now being contrasted with long-disputed answers Sessions gave the Senate Judiciary Committee at his confirmation hearing about Trump's campaign, including the exchange with Franken.

President Donald Trump says he is "disappointed" with the Justice Department and won't rule out firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions if Sessions won't investigate Democrats. News that he had mentioned the visit to Attorney General Jeff Sessions drew headlines, as it complicated Sessions' claims that he did not know about the Trump campaign's Russian Federation contacts.

But he downplayed the significance of the meetings, telling the Times he had "a very brief hello to a couple of people".

The Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday evening. "He said Sessions did not react or comment one way or the other", Conaway said in an interview.

More than 40M fire extinguishers that may not work recalled
The recall affects between 37 and 38 million extinguishers in the USA made from 1973 to this past September. Owners should contact Kidde to ask for a replacement and for instructions on how to return recalled models.

The Democratic senator said he did not know White House adviser Jared Kushner's role in the firing, and declined to weigh in on any potential wrongdoing on Kushner's part, including Kushner's multiple amendments to his security clearance form.

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?"

"I did not, and I'm not aware of anyone else that did, and I don't believe it happened", Sessions said.

The person familiar with Sessions' activity during the campaign said his testimony has been truthful and consistent.

Sen. Pat Leahy, D-Vt., another member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, called on Sessions to return to Capitol Hill. And whether it becomes a problem for him or not may just depend on President Trump and also on Congress. Democrats in the Senate are demanding that Sessions come back and explain this discrepancy - how he could have been in the room for a meeting where someone said this thing and then said he knew nothing about Russian connections during the campaign. "There were questions that elicited exactly the kind of information that the Papadopoulos plea agreement made".

"He had no knowledge of any conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign with any Russian or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States".
