Trump campaign adviser Page met Russian officials in 2016 Moscow trip

Trump campaign adviser Page met Russian officials in 2016 Moscow trip

A post on Trump's Instagram account shows the March 31, 2016, meeting taking place, with the candidate, Sessions and Papadopoulos all present.

He told Tapper his interactions with Papadopoulos during the campaign were limited to a "couple of brief conversations" and a "few emails".

Sessions appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee again in October. So how does this new information that he was in this room, that he knew about this, how does this complicate situation for Jeff Sessions?

"He needs to clarify his testimony before our committee", Judiciary Committee member Sen. 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.

Page said his own Russia trip was unrelated to the campaign, but the revelation comes amid questions over Attorney General Jeff Sessions' testimony to Congress about the Trump campaign and Russia, particularly after Page had said he mentioned his plans to travel to Russia to the then-senator. Papadopoulos proposed meeting with Putin and Trump.

Sessions' attendance at the meeting was revealed in court documents released Monday by special prosecutor Robert Mueller.

The committee has asked Page to produce more documents, according to members, to comply with the subpoena they previously issued.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley said Thursday he was still learning all the details about the Papadopoulos matter.

"All I can tell you is this, there was no collusion, there was no nothing", he continued.

The Justice Department did not comment.

J.D. Gordon, the director of the Trump campaign's foreign policy advisory team and a meeting attendee, told The Daily Caller that when Papadopoulos suggested a meeting with Trump, the real estate magnate "heard him out".

Papadopoulos has pleaded guilty to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about contacts with people who claimed to have ties to top Russian officials, in the first criminal charges alleging links between the Trump campaign and Moscow. He later acknowledged that he met then-Russian ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak twice during the campaign. In testimony to the Senate Judiciary committee, Sessions has denied knowing anything about contacts between the campaign and Russians or Russian government intermediaries.

The White House has moved to distance itself from Papadopoulos.

A person familiar with Sessions' thinking said that Sessions "has no clear recollection" of Papadopoulos at the meeting, though he does recall shooting down a proposal to meet with Putin. The call for more testimony came amidst revelations that Sessions may have committed perjury during his confirmation hearing.

Last month, Sessions told the same committee he was not aware of any Trump surrogates having contacts with Russian officials. 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?"
