Did Sessions mislead Congress about his interactions with Russian Federation?

06 November 2017

A foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump's presidential campaign met Russian government officials a year ago, the New York Times reported on Friday, citing testimony he gave this week to a USA congressional committee.

Also, it was only a matter of time before people began speculating who would be cast to play him in the inevitable made-for-TV movie about Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation campaign-meddling investigation.

The revelations revived questions about Sessions's credibility.

Before being linked to the federal investigation on Russia, Clovis had already attracted significant attention for past statements on both climate change and gay rights. The Minnesota Democrat said the latest disclosure suggests that the American people "cannot trust your word". "When they can't keep their stories straight, it does seems very suspicious to me, so I want the Attorney General to answer questions". Many objected over the summer when Trump fumed at Sessions for recusing himself from the Russian Federation investigation and began hinting he would fire his attorney general.

Sessions made similar denials in two subsequent hearings before Congress on Russian Federation since taking office.

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. In reality, the group met only once or twice and didn't really function.

Still, these results are a reflection of the toll that the legal battle between Qualcomm and Apple is taking. The company started using Intel's broadband modem chips in the iPhone 7 .

Court documents said Clovis told Papadopoulos: "Great work". Revelations that the attorney general was previously in a meeting with former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos and was told about Page's trips to Russian Federation have been raised by lawmakers as a subject of further inquiry.

"He heard him out", JD Gordon, a campaign national security adviser who attended the March 31, 2016 meeting, told CNN Thursday.

Sessions immediately rejected the proposal to arrange a meeting and thought that put an end to the idea, according to a person familiar with the matter who asked not to be identified commenting on private discussions.

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

"He committed perjury. He should not be in that position", Lieu said.

"Was that what you were saying, you don't believe that surrogates from the Trump campaign had communications with the Russians?"

Juergen Klopp's side won at West Ham 4-1 to secure successive league victories for the first time since August. Asked if he still has the club's backing, Bilic said: "It's hard for me to talk about that now". "I don't know.

Sessions replied: "I'm not aware of any of those activities".

"It will come out", he said.

"He needs to clarify his testimony before our committee", said Judiciary Committee member Sen. A guy he had never met before, grabs him, 'Hey, I'm out on the team.

He added that he had "mentioned" the July 2016 trip "to a few other people", but Page declined to be more specific.

"I don't make anything sinister out of it", Conaway told CNN.
