“It seems to me Sen. [Al] Franken has been very good in outlining the various instances where there was more than one contact on behalf of Sessions,” Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, told CNN. “Whether he remembers it or not does not mean that it didn’t happen. I think some of that needs to be developed further. “
“I think that the request has been made by Franken, and I think he should come back and clarify it,” Feinstein continued, referencing Sessions.
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office announced last week a former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, George Papadopoulos, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia.
Carter Page, a former Trump campaign adviser, also told lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee he traveled to Russia in 2016 and told Sessions about the meeting.
Sessions told lawmakers during congressional testimony in January he wasn't aware of any communications between members of the Trump campaign and Russian government officials.
