Papadopoulos Plea Prompts Senate Call To Question Sessions

Papadopoulos Plea Prompts Senate Call To Question Sessions

"Understandably, it was as irrelevant then as it is now", Page told CNN.

Papadapoulos pleaded guilty earlier this month to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about his dealings with Russians.

Page also told Tapper that he was not in the March 2016 meeting where Papadopoulos initially suggested the Russian Federation meeting.

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.

"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.

"I don't remember much about that meeting", Trump said. The document says when Papadopoulos introduced himself to the group he mentioned having connections that could help the campaign arrange a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

According to court documents released Monday, Papadopoulos said he was in a meeting with Trump and other advisers, including then-Sen.

Franken asked Sessions during his confirmation hearing on Jan 10 what he would do "if there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign".

According to the United Nations , more than 10,000 people have been killed in the conflict. According to a Houthi-run news agency, Sabaa, all the victims were civilians.

A source close to Sessions defended the attorney general, promising he "has been entirely truthful and consistent on this matter".

Sessions repeated that claim in written testimony to the committee, despite multiple meetings with the Russian envoy Sergey Kislyak during the campaign.

"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.

In an eight-page letter to Sessions on Thursday, Senator Al Franken recalled that the attorney general said at an October 18 Judiciary Committee hearing that a continuing exchange between the Trump campaign and Russian government intermediaries "did not happen, at least not to my knowledge and not with me".

"Sessions should come back before [the Senate Judiciary Committee]", Schumer said on The Rachel Maddow Show.

"I think there are many more questions for Jeff Sessions", said Sen. Instead, he is suggesting that the attorney general be allowed to submit updated written testimony, they said.

"I'm really not involved with the Justice Department".
