Jeff Sessions' meeting with George Papadopoulos draws fresh scrutiny

Posted November 05, 2017

Jeff Sessions and "a few people" on the Trump campaign.

Heinrich added it calls into question "whether he is being honest and forthright with the committee and what does that mean for the highest law enforcement officer in the country?"

Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican member of the Judiciary Committee, said it makes sense to ask Sessions to clarify the chain of events and how he reconciles it with his testimony before the committee.

"I don't think he told me the truth", Franken told ABC News. It was the first meeting of then-candidate Trump's foreign policy team at a time when he was being roundly criticized for not having foreign policy credentials and not being able to name any major players who were helping him out. "It matters what Papadopoulos said" in the meeting, one Justice Department official said.

"The attorney general has been entirely truthful and consistent on this matter", the source said, referring to Sessions' testimony before Congress where he rejected the notion of meetings and interactions with Russians during the campaign season. In testimony to the Senate judiciary committee, Sessions has denied knowing anything about contacts between the campaign and Russians or Russian government intermediaries.

Franken asked: "If there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?"

"He had no knowledge of any conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign with any Russian or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States", the unnamed source insisted.

He alleged that Mr Trump's former press secretary and now White House head of communications, Hope Hicks, had made the situation worse by making unequivocal statements suggesting the campaign had not spoken to Russians when they had. In testimony submitted to Capitol Hill investigators, Kushner said he "shook hands" and "exchanged brief pleasantries" with Kislyak. "If I were Sessions, I wouldn't have recalled it either".

During his confirmation hearing in January, Sessions told Sen.

Sessions replied, "I have not seen anything that would indicate collusion with the Russians to impact the campaign".

KEITH: Yeah. And he's - every time you ask about Russian Federation, he says, but what about the Democrats?

"I was very troubled by Attorney General Sessions comments overall", said Sen.

Papadopoulos said he received the information in April 2016 that Russians had "dirt" on Clinton and thousands of emails - about three months before the WikiLeaks organization began releasing troves of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee, according to the court filing.
