Following former Trump advisor Carter Page's six hour closed-door testimony on Thursday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has come under fire by Democrats for allegedly knowing about Russia's involvement in the 2016 election while serving on the Trump campaign.
Special counsel Robert Mueller, who has impaneled a grand jury in his probe of the collusion allegations, charged Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and another aide, Rick Gates, with money laundering on Monday. So, Tam, this was right before the president left for his trip to Asia. And I warn you, there is some loud helicopter noise behind him.
According to documents unsealed Monday, Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty to making a false statement to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, frequently communicated with Russians about arranging a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, and even pitched a potential summit to Sessions and Trump at a meeting of the then-candidate's foreign policy team on March 31, 2016. He answered some questions from reporters. It took place a long time ago.
Sessions appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee again in October. "And that he could arrange such a meeting - and that was ultimately shut down within a few minutes by Senator Sessions, in no uncertain terms".
It's possible Papadopoulos may have been at Trump events that Sessions also attended, including a dinner at the Capitol Hill Club with some members of the foreign policy committee during the summer of 2016, the person said.
Senator Chuck Grassley, the Iowa Republican who's chairman of the committee, said he needs to look at the issue before commenting. Yesterday, he was on "The Larry O'Connor Show" on WMAL. After reports to the contrary, the Justice Department clarified Sessions met with the Russian ambassador twice, and former FBI Director James Comey said Sessions may have met with the ambassador a third time. And this is how the president responded. I'm not supposed to be doing the kind of things that I would love to be doing. Near the end of the dinner, Page approached Sessions to say hello and thanked the then-senator for the dinner, and Page also mentioned he was headed to Russian Federation.
"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. These remarks from the president sort of saying what the Justice Department should investigate run afoul of decades-old traditions when officials from both political parties after Watergate demanded that the Justice Department be insulated from political pressure.
