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.

"He lied under oath at least twice and most recently, both Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, based on their testimony and their statements, they show that Jeff Sessions contradicted himself when he said he was not aware of any campaign official talking to the Russians", Lieu said in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer. "Completely unrelated to my limited volunteer role with the campaign and as I've done dozens of times throughout my life".

"Understandably, it was as irrelevant then as it is now", Page told CNN.

Franken asked Sessions during his confirmation hearing on Jan 10 what he would do "if there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign".

Taylor Swift's new album, Reputation , has already set hearts on fire with numbers like Look What You Made Me Do and Gorgeous . It's clearly a love song about her boyfriend of one year, Joe Alwyn , but the words run deeper than that.

Sessions made similar denials in two subsequent hearings before Congress on Russian Federation since taking office. "I am deeply troubled that this newest revelation strongly suggests that the Senate ― and the American public ― can not trust your word".

Last month he reiterated he did not know of any Trump campaign official having contact with Russian officials - a claim Senate Democrats are pushing back on.

Leahy echoed that concern, saying Papadopoulos' account was "impossible to reconcile with the attorney general's appearance before the [Senate] Judiciary Committee just two weeks ago".

"I was one of many people on that e-mail chain", Page said.

Army Deserter Bowe Bergdahl Will Not Serve Prison Time
Bergdahl, now 31, was captured by the Taliban and spent almost five years under brutal captivity by the insurgent group. At the time of Bergdahl's release, Obama said the US does not leave its service members on the battlefield.

"That was the only time our informal committee actually got together with then-candidate Trump". "There were questions that elicited exactly the kind of information that the Papadopoulos plea agreement made".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders acknowledged the resignation Thursday.

During his January 10 confirmation hearing, Sessions said he was "not aware" of anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign coordinating with the Russian government when asked about such ties by Franken.

"He had no knowledge of any conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign with any Russian or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States", the unnamed source insisted.
