Page Tells Russia Probe He's `Biggest Embarrassment' to Trump

Page Tells Russia Probe He's `Biggest Embarrassment' to Trump”

Trump has said the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller has nothing to do with him.

Last Monday, unsealed court records showed former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his interactions with foreign officials close to the Russian government - the campaign's clearest connection so far to Russia's efforts to meddle in the 2016 election. Page told the committee that he had not worked with the Russians to hack emails or otherwise influence the election. A photo showed Sessions also attended that campaign meeting, and a source told CNN that at the meeting, Sessions vetoed the proposed Trump-Putin sit-down.

Democrats want to question Sessions because, in October, he told the Senate Judiciary Committee that a continuing exchange between the Trump campaign and Russian government intermediaries "did not happen, at least not to my knowledge and not with me".

"He didn't say yes and he didn't say no", the official said, declining to be more specific about Trump's response to Papadopoulos.

They were just 4-7 in their last 11 regular-season games prior to last postseason before reeling off 10 straight wins. Beal is a career 41.2 percent 3-point shooter against Cleveland and had a 41-point outburst last season.

Eighty-six percent approve of the job he is doing; 66 percent approve of how he's handling the Russia investigation; only 42 percent say Russian interference is a crisis or major problem; and 75 percent think Trump didn't know about the contacts with pro-Russian operatives.

Former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page told a number of his campaign colleagues and supervisors about his dealings with Russians, he told members of Congress last week.

Page said that before heading to Moscow, he informed then-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski along with communications director Hope Hicks and J.D. Gordon, who was managing the candidate's national security team.

Gordon said he does not recall the email but that he had discouraged Page from going to Moscow.

Markelle Fultz Out Indefinitely with Shoulder Injury, Re-Evaluated in 3 Weeks
But that will not be the case following Fultz's consultation with shoulder specialists, which ruled out structural damage. Markelle Fultz will take more time before he returns to the court.

Trump has said he does not recall ever speaking to Page.

Papadopoulos continued trying to arrange contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, the court filings say.

For more than a year, questions have swirled about a trip Page made to Moscow in July 2016 during which he delivered a commencement speech at the New Economic School, a Moscow university.

Page has often been contradictory about whom he met on the trip, but his testimony Thursday was under oath. At the Republican National Convention, Page told the committee that he spoke with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and the subject of US sanctions on Russia "may have briefly come up in some context". He said he discussed "foreign policy things" with the ambassador and that he had some "general" discussions of U.S. -Russia relations with she and other Hungarian officials - though he could recall few specifics. Schiff read from a document Page sent back to the Trump campaign after the trip.
