Page said the trips were "completely unrelated to my limited volunteer role with the campaign and as I've done dozens of times throughout my life".

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.

He said one person was a "senior person", but he would not reveal the person's identity.

Also, it was only a matter of time before people began speculating who would be cast to play him in the inevitable made-for-TV movie about Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation campaign-meddling investigation.

As part of the inquiry into potential collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and the Kremlin, Mueller's office also announced the surprising news on Monday that his team had gained the cooperation of Papadopoulos, a former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, who has been working with federal investigators following his own guilty plea that he lied to the FBI. 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.

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. The Minnesota Democrat said the latest disclosure suggests that the American people "cannot trust your word".

Papadopoulos was named by Trump as a member of his foreign policy advisory panel in March 2016, when the candidate was trying to bolster his credentials as he moved to secure the Republican nomination for president.

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.

"He heard him out", JD Gordon, a campaign national security adviser who attended the March 31, 2016 meeting, told CNN Thursday. Jeff Sessions and "a few people" on the Trump campaign. "He was not aware of any continuous exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for Russian government as Sen".

"I don't know", Trump told reporters Friday on the White House lawn as he prepared to board Marine One for the first leg of trip to Asia.

Patrick Leahy, a member of the committee, said.

While Democrats made clear that the Papadopoulos revelations raise new questions about whether Sessions told the truth to Congress, there was little indication they'd pursue the politically and legally uncertain possibility that the nation's top law enforcement official could be prosecuted for perjury.

"I'm really not involved with the Justice Department".
