What We Know About Papadopoulos Russia Meet Claim

Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, who is in charge of the committee's Russian Federation investigation, confirmed to CNN that Page gave such testimony, but minimized its meaning.

Sessions's participation in the gathering was detailed in court documents released Monday by special counsel Robert Mueller III. Various news outlets Wednesday unveiled Clovis as the unnamed "campaign supervisor" in Mueller's indictments, with whom George Papadopoulos exchanged emails about meeting with suspected Russian officials.

Senators on Thursday called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to explain why, during his testimony before various committees, he denied the Trump campaign communicated with Russian officials and failed to disclose that a Trump adviser offered to set up a meeting between the candidate and Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2016.

"I'd like to minimize bringing more people into it".

But the chairman of Trump's national security team, then Alabama senator and now attorney general Jeff Sessions, shut down the idea of a Putin meeting at the March 31, 2016, gathering, according to a person in the room. If Sessions were pushed out, it would give Trump the chance to appoint a new attorney general - who would have the authority to fire Mueller and take over the Russian Federation probe.

Sam Clovis, a 25-year Air Force veteran and onetime talk show host from Iowa, served as co-chair and policy adviser to the Trump campaign.

The March 24, 2016 email in question was highlighted in the plea agreement Papadopoulos entered into after lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about the extent of his contacts with individuals like Joseph Mifsud, a London-based professor of diplomacy who allegedly spent months trying to connect Papadopoulos with Russian officials.

"You know, it'll come out", Page said.

Sessions, now attorney general, has testified to Congress that he didn't know about of any people on the Trump campaign having contacts with Russians.

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.

"I would think that Carter page aspect of this is... troubling", Wallace said.

"I actually had a previously scheduled meeting with some top USA military officers thousands of miles away from Washington", he said.

During an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper before the New York Times and CNN reports, Page confirmed that before going on the trip he mentioned his travel plans to travel to then-Sen.

"I missed my one chance".
