"It was a brief comment as we were walking towards the elevator after having a dinner together", Page, who testified about his Russian connections Thursday before the House Intelligence Committee, told Jake Tapper on CNN.

Also on Thursday, former Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page told Congress in a six-hour, closed-door testimony that he told Sessions he was traveling to Russian Federation during the presidential campaign, according to an account he gave to CNN.

Page said he told Sessions that "I'm glad I was able to meet you before I head to Moscow".

Senate Democrats have called on Jeff Sessions to clarify just how much he knew about attempts by the Russian government to influence the 2016 presidential election, following revelations that the attorney general was previously in a meeting with former Trump campaign aide-turned special counsel cooperator George Papadopoulos.

Trump Says New York Terror Suspect 'Should Get Death Penalty'
The charges against Saipov, 29, came just a day after the attack near the World Trade Center killed eight people. And he urged Congress to end the Diversity Immigrant Visa programme under which Saipov entered the U.S. in 2010.

Page reportedly told House committee members that had mentioned the trip to Sessions, who denied having any knowledge of Trump campaign Russian Federation ties in his Senate confirmation hearing in January.

Sessions was present at that meeting, and former campaign adviser J.D. Gordon told The New York Times that Sessions opposed the idea "and he said no one should talk about" the proposed meeting because Sessions did not want the idea associated with the Trump campaign. "I believe that's the only thing I ever got".

The March 24, 2016 email in question was highlighted in the plea agreement Papadopoulos entered into after lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about the extent of his contacts with individuals like Joseph Mifsud, a London-based professor of diplomacy who allegedly spent months trying to connect Papadopoulos with Russian officials. "I sent him a letter and I would like for him to come before the judiciary meeting again and explain himself". "There were questions that elicited exactly the kind of information that the Papadopoulos plea agreement made". The email went to "several members of the Campaign's foreign policy team", prosecutors alleged. President Trump chose Clovis to serve as chief scientist at the Department of Agriculture and his choice was met with immediate backlash from Democrats and environmental groups.

Page also told Tapper that he was not in the March 2016 meeting where Papadopoulos initially suggested the Russian Federation meeting. A source told NBC on Thursday night that Sessions rejected Papadopoulos' proposal to set up a meeting between then-presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
