Trump has memory lapse over meeting about Russian officials

Exclusive: Carter Page testifies he told Sessions about Russia trip

During a news conference in February, Trump said he knew of nobody from his campaign who was in contact with Russians during the election.

Although Page said his comment to Sessions was only in passing and the trip was unrelated to the campaign, he statements call into question Sessions' testimony to Congress regarding the Trump campaign and any potential ties between it and Russian Federation.

Papadopoulos - who boasted of his Russian connection in at least one meeting Sessions attended - pleaded guilty to lying about the timing of those contacts, becoming the first person who served on Trump's campaign to admit to committing a crime.

Sessions's participation in the gathering was detailed in court documents released Monday by special counsel Robert Mueller III.

Departing Twitter employee deactivates Donald Trump's account
After the account was restored Trump did not tweet about the vanishing act, but made several posts on other topics. But by 7 p.m., Twitter had learned that a customer support employee, on their last day of work, pulled the stunt.

Sessions' testimony directly contradicts an Federal Bureau of Investigation affidavit that alleges former Trump adviser George Papadopoulos spoke directly with Sessions about potentially arranging a meeting with then-candidate Trump during the 2016 election. 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. "I'm not recused from Russia, '" Wallace said. "I am deeply troubled that this newest revelation strongly suggests that the Senate ― and the American public ― can not 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.

When Tapper asked if Sessions, now the United States attorney general, was "the only one on the campaign that knew about the trip", Page replied: "I mentioned it to a few people".

Nonetheless, the court filing on Papadopoulos is now being contrasted with long-disputed answers Sessions gave the Senate Judiciary Committee at his confirmation hearing about Trump's campaign, including the exchange with Franken. Other officials include Trump's former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
