Mr. Clovis was drawn further into controversy this week when George Papadopoulos, a Trump campaign official, plead guilty to misleading Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about a series of meetings he took with Russia-linked individuals during the 2016 election. A post on Trump's Instagram account shows the March 31, 2016, meeting taking place, with the candidate, Sessions and Papadopoulos all present.
Reported testimony from former campaign policy adviser Carter Page only adds to questions about what Sessions knew.
Sessions "needs to come back before the committee, in person, under oath, to explain why he can not seem to provide truthful, complete answers", Senator Patrick Leahy, the panel's senior Democrat, said in a statement.
"The political climate inside Washington has made it impossible for me to receive balanced and fair consideration for this position", Clovis said in a resignation letter to Trump, according to a Politico report. Sessions, who is now the USA attorney general and was an early supporter of Trump's campaign, to say hello and mentioned he was headed to Russian Federation.
Last month, Sessions told the same committee he was not aware of any Trump surrogates having contacts with Russian officials.
"I was one of many people on that e-mail chain", Page said.
During his January confirmation hearing to become attorney general, Sessions told the Judiciary Committee that he had had no communication with Russian officials, only to have The Post reveal in March that he had spoken twice with the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak. Other aides were wary of the idea before Sessions himself "spoke vehemently against the idea" and asked others not to discuss it, the Times reported earlier this week.
CNN had also reported that the encounter Page described occurred at a dinner at the Capitol Hill Club, at which Page approached Sessions to say hello and mentioned he was headed to Russian Federation, according to a source familiar with the meeting.
The Justice Department declined to comment, and Trump denies any collusion. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that he held an "extremely limited" role in the campaign and described him as a "volunteer" that did nothing in an "official capacity".
"Attorney General Sessions should come back before Congress and answer questions in light of recent revelations", said Senator Ron Wyden. However, news reports from March revealed that Sessions had met twice with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the lead up to the 2016 US presidential election.
