Trump Adviser Carter Page Describes Meeting With Russian Official During 2016 Campaign

John Hudak, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, said Democrats may be restraining themselves in order to convey an air of seriousness and nonpartisanship.

Sessions, an early Trump backer who led a foreign policy advisory council during the campaign, has been shadowed for months by questions about his own communications with Russians and by contacts of others in the Trump orbit.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's team has questioned Sam Clovis, co-chairman of President Donald Trump's election campaign, to determine if Trump or top aides knew of the extent of the campaign team's contacts with Russia, two sources familiar with the investigation said on Friday. Sprint shares are down nearly 21% in the year to date, while shares of T-Mobile are up more than 2%.

"The interviews will ideally be completed by Thanksgiving, or shortly thereafter", said White House special counsel Ty Cobb in an interview with NPR.

"I believe that he feels that he [Putin] and Russia did not meddle in the election", Trump said in Hanoi. Yet he recused himself in March from overseeing the Justice Department's investigation into potential coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin after acknowledging two previously undisclosed encounters with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

"Democratic folks do not want to make common cause with those on the far-right who want to do damage to the special counsel", said Norm Eisen, the White House ethics czar under former President Barack Obama.

"I did not, and I'm not aware of anyone else that did, and I don't believe it happened". Charging documents in that case indicate that Papadopoulos told the council "that he had connections that could help arrange a meeting between then-candidate Trump" and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The following day, Papadopoulos met with "overseas professor" Joseph Mifsud, who told the Trump foreign policy adviser that Russia had "thousands of emails" that he promised would hurt Clinton's election chances.

That could make the Jewish ultra-conservative a key link in the still-evolving probe - and a top target for Mueller's team, who may hope to get Miller to spill the beans on even higher ups.

"If, as recent reports suggest, you rejected Mr. Papadopoulos's suggestion that President Trump meet with Vladimir Putin at that March 31 meeting - a fact you appear to have remembered only after Mr. Papadopoulos's account was made public - it seems likely that you were 'aware' of communications between the Russian government and surrogates of the Trump campaign", the letter states.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, declined to comment.

Page told the panel he had informed some members of the Trump campaign about the trip, including Sessions.

"No, I think that's a violation".

Miller was one of the unnamed people corresponding with Papadopoulos, and Papadopoulos helped edit a major foreign policy address Trump gave in April 2016, according to the New York Times.
