Campaign adviser says Trump listened to Papadopoulos and 'heard him out'

Jeff Sessions Under Fire As New Revelations Cast Further Doubt on His Russia Testimony

"It was such a nothing event", he said of his conversation with Sessions, who has repeatedly denied knowing whether any aides had any Moscow contacts. "I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians".

"It was totally in passing". Other officials include Trump's former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

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

Asked about the meeting on Friday, Trump told reporters at the White House, "it was a very unimportant meeting, took place a long time, don't remember much about it".

During his confirmation hearing in January, Sessions denied any knowledge that members of the Trump campaign communicated with Russian officials.

Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about interactions with foreign officials close to the Russian government - the campaign's clearest connection so far to Russia's efforts to meddle in the 2016 election.

"I think there are many more questions for Jeff Sessions", said Sen.

'Multiple parties down' in Colorado Walmart shooting, police say
No information has been released about the circumstances of the shooting or who was responsible for the gunfire. Smith said he and other customers had trouble getting the door to open as they tried to get out of the store.

"I only had a few e-mails in my inbox from him". Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn. "There were questions that elicited exactly the kind of information that the Papadopoulos plea agreement made".

J.D. Gordon, a former Pentagon spokesman and Trump adviser who attended the meeting, also recalled that Sessions "shut him down" when Papadopoulos announced that he could introduce Trump to Putin. The email went to "several members of the Campaign's foreign policy team", prosecutors alleged.

They included Sam Clovis, who withdrew this week as a Trump nominee as an undersecretary in the Department of Agriculture. "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".

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

Senator Al Franken, whose exchange with Sessions in January has prompted a continuing dispute, said in a letter to Sessions on Thursday that the Papadopoulos revelations are "another example in an alarming pattern in which you, the nation's top law enforcement officer, apparently failed to tell the truth, under oath, about the Trump team's contacts with agents of Russian Federation".

"I missed my one chance".

"That was the only time our informal committee actually got together with then-candidate Trump".
