House judiciary Dems intend to press Sessions over Russian Federation

House judiciary Dems intend to press Sessions over Russian Federation

Prosecutors said they must confirm that they are the real owners.

Speaking on CBS's "Face the Nation", Senate intelligence committee ranking Democrat Mark Warner, of Virginia, said he might want to hear more from Sessions.

Another campaign adviser, Carter Page, told the House Intelligence Committee last week that he informed Sessions in July 2016 about his own planned trip to Moscow.

The panel reached an agreement with Page to release the transcript of his interview to the public, and the committee posted the transcript online late Monday.

MR. SCHIFF: You've also testified that, apart from him, you met no one from the Presidential administration, and yet on July 8, of past year, you wrote in an email to the campaign that you had incredible insights and outreach that you received from Russian legislators and senior members, plural, of the Presidential administration. He is at least the second member of the foreign policy team contacted by Russians with offers of help or meetings.

His appearance generated extra attention on Capitol Hill after the disclosure of a guilty plea by another Trump campaign foreign policy aide, George Papadopoulos. Then-Senator Sessions, serving as chairman of the campaign's national security team, also attended this meeting, sitting just a few seats away from Papadopoulos.

The case of Page, an energy consultant and graduate of the Naval Academy, has attracted scrutiny since he was named an adviser to the campaign in March 2016. The new numbers come almost a year to the day after his 2016 election victory.

Questioned by the committee, Page again denied meeting Sechin - but acknowledged he had met with other officials who work for Rosneft, the company Sechin leads, including the head of investor relations.

In a letter sent Tuesday, the lawmakers note that one of the Trump campaign's foreign policy advisers, George Papadopoulos, acknowledged to FBI investigators that he told several Trump campaign officers about his outreach to the Russian Federation government. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has said several times that the answer is one, implying that the foreign policy council was an unimportant body and Papadopoulos was a minor player in the campaign.

Page also acknowledged that he solicited suggestions for his Moscow speech from the campaign. Their conversation, he told investigators, was not about coordination with Russian Federation on the campaign, but largely limited to an exchange of pleasantries.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions will testify before the House Judiciary Committee next week as part of its ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

But Page, who declined to have an attorney present during the testimony to the House committee, said his trips to Russian Federation were "benign" and blasted the congressional investigations as a waste of time and money.

Page also acknowledged to members of Congress that he has had at least four meetings with the FBI related to the Russian Federation investigation.

In keeping with the Halloween spirit, the poll also found that Americans say that Trump is scarier than ghosts, vampires, witches, mummies, zombies and werewolves - but not scarier than the devil.
