Trump advisor, linked to Russian Federation probe, withdraws candidacy for post

Trump campaign aide met Russian officials in 2016 NY Times

The email was read aloud during Page's closed-door testimony to the House intelligence committee, the newspaper reported.

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.

But an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent's affidavit supporting criminal charges against Papadopoulos said he also claimed in an email that top Trump campaign officials, who weren't identified, approved a pre-election meeting with representatives of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Carter Page met with Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich while in Moscow in July 2016, the former foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump's campaign confirmed to CNN on Friday.

"I know because I was going ask him all about it to get more facts on the record and before the American people".

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". If Sessions were pushed out, it would give Trump the chance to appoint a new attorney general - who would have the authority to fire Mueller and take over the Russian Federation probe.

During a news conference in February, Trump said he knew of nobody from his campaign who was in contact with Russians during the election. Jeff Sessions, when he said "he had connections that could help arrange a meeting between then-candidate Trump and President [Vladimir] Putin".

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

The email, dated March 24, 2016, was highlighted Papadopoulos' plea agreement announced Monday. Among those receiving the email, it has since been reported, was Sam Clovis, who told Papadopoulos: "Great work".

Papadopoulos said he received the information in April 2016 that Russians had "dirt" on Clinton and thousands of emails - about three months before the WikiLeaks organization began releasing troves of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee, according to the court filing. "I changed my travel plans to go to Russian Federation'".
