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".

Do you smell blood with the way the Cavs are playing right now? "It wasn't like we were just out there [trying to lose]". The Raps shot 53.5 percent from the field on the road against one of the best defensive teams in the league.

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.

Additionally, wages rose from the same time previous year by 2.4 percent but slowed somewhat from last month. Wages pressures in October were flat, however, with average hourly earnings falling by a penny to $26.53.

"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.
