Senate Dems demand Sessions clarify testimony on Russian Federation

A photograph posted on Trump's Instagram account shows Papadopoulos sitting at the same table with Trump as well as Jeff Sessions, now Trump's attorney general, and several others.

"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.

And during his January 10 confirmation hearing with the same committee, Sessions said that he was "not aware" of anyone in the Trump campaign communicating with the Russian government.

The newspaper said the email was read aloud during the closed-door testimony on Thursday to the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, which is investigating efforts by Russian Federation to tip the November 2016 election in Trump's favor and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. This morning the president said he doesn't remember the details of a March 2016 meeting with his campaign's national security team - a meeting that has taken on increased significance as the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election this week announced the first charges in the inquiry. Leahy asked Sessions later that month if the attorney general had "been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election".

"Back in June 2016, I mentioned in passing that I happened to be planning to give a speech at a university in Moscow", Page told CNN.

Page said the trips were "completely unrelated to my limited volunteer role with the campaign and as I've done dozens of times throughout my life". "Perjury is a very careful standard, but it's something that would be looked at".

Sessions' attendance at the meeting was revealed in court documents released Monday by special prosecutor Robert Mueller. And I warn you, there is some loud helicopter noise behind him.

A Justice spokesperson declined to comment.

But a source familiar with Sessions' thinking pointed out that others in the room recall that Sessions "shut down" talk of a Putin meeting and that Papadopoulos "didn't have a lot of credibility".

Carter Page acknowledged Friday that he was copied on an email chain in which fellow Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos suggested hooking the Trump team up with Russian government officials. He answered some questions from reporters.

Even so, it's unclear how hard Democrats will go after Sessions even if they conclude that he lied to Congress. "It matters what Papadopoulos said" in the meeting, one Justice Department official said. "Sessions needs to be more forthright to our committee and clarify the record and I intend to write to him about it".

"I'm not aware of any of those activities", said Sessions in an indirect response to Franken's question.

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