Sessions Rejected Adviser's Proposal for Trump-Putin Meet

Trump didn't dismiss idea of Putin meeting

CNN reported Wednesday that Trump did not dismiss the idea of arranging a meeting with Russia's president when it was suggested in a meeting with his campaign foreign policy advisers past year.

On Wednesday, lawmakers from both parties said Sessions needs to explain the discrepancies. However, news reports from March revealed that Sessions had met twice with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the lead up to the 2016 USA presidential election.

Rep. Mike Conaway, the Texas Republican who is leading the House intelligence committees Russian Federation probe, confirmed to CNN that Page told the committee he had informed Sessions about his trip, though Conaway downplayed its significance.

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.

Papadopoulos was named by Trump as a member of his foreign policy advisory panel in March 2016, when the candidate was trying to bolster his credentials as he moved to secure the Republican nomination for president.

Investigators found thousands of ISIS-related propaganda images and videos on Saipov's cellphone, the complaint said. A law enforcement official said Kadirov was a friend of Saipov's and may not have any role in the case.

Sessions is also under pressure from his boss, who has made clear he thinks the Department of Justice should look into his former presidential rival, Hillary Clinton, and her campaign's behavior with the Democratic National Committee during the presidential primary race.

When Page spoke with CNN's Jake Tapper on Friday afternoon, he said he had only met with academics and a few business people whom he had "known for over a decade".

During more than six hours of closed-door testimony, Page said he informed Sessions about his coming July 2016 trip to Russian Federation, which Page told CNN was unconnected to his campaign role.

Asked under oath at a Senate hearing last month if he believed Trump campaign surrogates had communications with Russians, Sessions replied, "I did not and I'm not aware of anyone else that did, and I don't believe it happened".

"As far as Sessions seemed to be concerned, when he shut down this idea of Papadopoulos engaging with Russian Federation, that was the end of it and he moved the meeting along to other issues", the source said. "If anybody's got any concerns about his meeting, write him a letter and see what he says", said Sen. During the session, George Papadopoulos, a 30-year-old energy consultant, suggested that he could broker a meeting between the campaign and Putin.

Patriots Sign 49ers Quarterback Brian Hoyer To Three-Year Contract
According to Pelissero's colleague Ian Rapoport, the Green Bay Packers were trying to convince Hoyer to sign with them instead. The trade left Tom Brady as the only quarterback still on the Patriots roster.

The New York Times, citing an anonymous campaign aide who attended the meeting, said Trump "listened with interest" to Papadopoulos' pitch and asked several questions.

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

"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 said in a statement.

At the time of that article, a spokeswoman for Sessions declined to comment.

During his confirmation hearing in January, Sessions told Sen.

"I don't know", Sessions responded.
