In the plea deal documents released by Mueller on Monday, Papadopoulos recounted a meeting in which he suggested setting up a meeting with then-candidate Trump and some Russians he knew with potentially damaging information about Clinton.

The development comes days after Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and an associate were placed under house arrest on money-laundering charges linked to an investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into allegations that the campaign colluded with Russian Federation. "Completely unrelated to my limited volunteer role with the campaign and as I've done dozens of times throughout my life".

During his confirmation hearing in January, Sessions told Sen.

The TV personality, who has been engaged in a decade-long feud with Trump, was quick to praise Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his ongoing probe into possible ties between Trump's 2016 campaign and Russian Federation.

Last month, Sessions testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that neither he nor anyone else was in contact with Russian operatives during the election cycle.

On Friday, he told The Times that "I had a very brief hello to a couple of people".

The Justice Department did not comment. But on Thursday, the person familiar with Sessions' recollections said, "the attorney general has no clear recollection of this person".

Franken asked: "If there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?"

"Back in June 2016, I mentioned in passing that I happened to be planning to give a speech at a university in Moscow".

"He needs to clarify his testimony before our committee", said Judiciary Committee member Senator Richard Blumenthal.

"The attorney general has been entirely truthful and consistent on this matter", the source said, referring to Sessions' testimony before Congress where he rejected the notion of meetings and interactions with Russians during the campaign season. 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.

Conaway said that Page was "fulsome" in his answers and he answered all of the questions the committee asked. He has denied knowing anything about contacts between the campaign and Russians or Russian government intermediaries. "As far as Sessions seemed to be concerned, when he shut down this idea of Papadopoulos engaging with Russian Federation, that was the end of it and he moved the meeting along to other issues".

Democrats say the filings appear to contradict Sessions' sworn testimony before Congress.

A Sessions spokeswoman declined to comment this week on the March 31 meeting with Trump and campaign advisers, including Papadopoulos.
