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.

"I would think that Carter page aspect of this is... troubling", Wallace said.

The revelation that Carter Page - a former campaign advisor to President Donald Trump - testified that he gave Attorney General Jeff Sessions a heads-up before taking a trip to Russian Federation in 2016 carries potentially grave implications for the nation's top cop.

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.

Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) on Friday slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions for not telling him the truth during his January confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and again in October during a separate congressional hearing.

Sam Clovis was the first of President Trump's nominees to withdraw from consideration after he was among the names of President Trump's campaign officials involved with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe.

Papadopoulos said in the email that he was acting "to arrange a meeting between us and the Russian leadership to discuss U.S. -Russia ties under President Trump", court records indicate.

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. A post on Trump's Instagram account shows the March 31, 2016, meeting taking place, with the candidate, Sessions and Papadopoulos all present.

The email went to "several members of the campaign's foreign policy team", according to the documents. 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.

"I missed my one chance".
