Trump campaign adviser Carter Page acknowledges meeting with senior Russian officials: transcript

Trump campaign adviser Carter Page acknowledges meeting with senior Russian officials: transcript

Page's trip to Moscow has previously been disclosed, but in testimony before the House intel committee last week, the former adviser informed congressional investigators he had notified former campaign manager Corey Lewnadowski and White House communications director Hope Hicks of his travel to Russian Federation.

Seperately, Sessions is due to appear in a closed session before the House Intelligence Committee on November 14, a source familiar with that panel's plans said.

On Oct. 18, Sessions testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that he was not aware of anyone in the Trump campaign that had communications with the Russians.

Papadopoulos also told his superiors on the campaign that he was being offered "dirt" on Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and "off the record" meetings with Russian leaders - which, according to court documents, he was encouraged to pursue.

The Senate Intelligence Committee is conducting its own investigation into Russian interference.

Denver Broncos name Brock Osweiler as their starting quarterback
In 2015 with the Broncos, he went 23-for-42 for 270 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Denver's 30-24 overtime win. His first opportunity will come against arguably the best team in the National Football League, the Philadelphia Eagles .

His appearance generated extra attention on Capitol Hill after the disclosure of a guilty plea by another Trump campaign foreign policy aide, George Papadopoulos.

Last Monday, unsealed court records revealed that Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his interactions with foreign officials close to the Russian government - one of the campaign's clearest connections so far to Russia's efforts to meddle in the 2016 election.

The email appeared to contradict earlier statements by Page, who had said he had only exchanged brief greetings with the senior Russian official, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, after he delivered a speech at a Russian university.

"In a private conversation, Dvorkovich expressed strong support for Mr. Trump and a desire to work together toward devising better solutions in response to the vast range of current global problems", Page wrote, according to Schiff.

Reuters reported on Monday that the committee would hold a hearing with Sessions next week. But the details about interactions between his foreign policy advisers and Russians raise new questions about the Trump campaign's dealings with Moscow.

Tesla Inc (TSLA) Slashes Production of Two Cars, Misses Q3 Estimates
Following the completion of the sale, the vice president now owns 1,736 shares of the company's stock, valued at $589,354.64. The company says it's on track to deliver 100,000 Model S and Model X vehicles in 2017, up 30 percent from 2016.

He said he was unaware at the time that Papadopoulos was making similar proposals for Trump to travel to Russian Federation, though he acknowledged he had received some of Papadopoulos' emails about Russian Federation.

"They're focused on criminal investigations, we're focused on armchair quarterbacking - making sure every witness has been seen, every fact has been checked - and we're going through the policy aspects", Lankford said.

Questioned by the committee, Page again denied meeting Sechin - but acknowledged he had met with other officials who work for Rosneft, the company Sechin leads, including the head of investor relations.

Schiff said it's impossible to say whether Russian interference in the election almost a year ago is the reason Republican Donald Trump won the presidency over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

He has for months said the trip was made as a private citizen, not as part of his role with the Trump campaign.
