Had contacts with Russian officials: Trump's campaign advisor

  • Natalia Veselnitskaya the Russian lawyer who met Donald Trump Jr in Trump Tower in June 2016

Attorney General Jeff Sessions will appear in front of a House Judiciary Committee panel on November 14, where he is expected to face questions about communications between the Russian government and President Trump's election campaign, Reuters reports.

Page has been open about some of his contacts with Russian officials during and before the 2016 presidential campaign, including with former Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak.

"Page - after being presented with an email he sent to his campaign supervisors, and which he did not disclose to the committee prior to the interview and despite a subpoena from the Committee - detailed his meetings with Russian government officials and others, and said that they provided him with insights and outreach that he was interested in sharing with the campaign", Schiff said in a statement. Page said he also told Sam Clovis, another campaign aide.

Schiff called the Russian links to Papadopoulos and Page two parallel efforts by the Trump campaign to make contacts with Russian interests.

The New York Times first reported that Page notified campaign officials about his meetings in Moscow, but the transcript, which is more than 200 pages long, discloses the names of those advisers - Tera Dahl and J.D. Gordon - and the identity of the Russian official, Dvorkovich. Investigators revealed Monday that Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to investigators in connection with the Russian Federation probe.

Sessions reportedly rejected the proposal.

Zach Miller has epic touchdown taken away with bogus review after injury
Alvin Kamara continued his red-hot rookie campaign with another touchdown, this one coming from eight yards out to make it 7-0. What seemed to be a touchdown catch for Miller was overturned on the field and ruled an incomplete pass.


A barrage of reports over the weekend divulged what was framed as a major new development in the Russian Federation investigation: former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page admitted that he met with a senior Kremlin official during a July 2016 trip to Moscow.

"These facts appear to contradict your sworn testimony on several occasions", the Democrats on the House judiciary panel, led by Rep. Jon Conyers Jr., of MI, wrote in a letter dated Tuesday. "We have not yet received a single meaningful response to any of the letters", including ones sent directly to the department. Now, Veselnitskaya wants to share her account with the Senate Judiciary Committee on the condition that her testimony be made public-a condition that the committee has not yet agreed to, Bloomberg reports.

"Jeff, you need to tell us everything you know about Russian Federation".

Congress has been investigating possible Trump campaign collusion with the Kremlin for almost 10 months, but a top Senate Democrat says she has still not seen evidence to support the allegation.

Committee Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, hasn't yet asked Sessions to return to testify. Sessions, who is now the U.S. attorney general and was an early supporter of Trump's campaign, to say hello and mentioned he was headed to Russian Federation.
