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.

Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to investigators as part of a deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is probing Russian meddling in the USA election.

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.

"I did not, and I'm not aware of anyone else that did, and I don't believe it happened", Sessions said in response to questions from Sen. He maintained that his interaction with Dvorkovich consisted of a brief greeting, and that he had learned his views on the campaign while listening to Dvorkovich's public address.

Page's testimony also revealed that more campaign staff members were aware of his July 2016 trip to Russian Federation than had previously been disclosed, including Jeff Sessions, who is now the attorney general.

Sessions' discussion with Page will fuel further scrutiny about what the attorney general knew about connections between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation - and communications about Russian Federation that he did not disclose despite a persistent line of questioning in three separate hearings this year.

Reuters reported on Monday that the committee would hold a hearing with Sessions next week.

Gordon said he does not recall the email but that he had discouraged Page from going to Moscow. But the official acknowledged that some members of the council met for dinner "once or twice or a few times" and did not know how many of those gatherings Page or Papadopoulos attended.

With his Russian Federation ties under scrutiny, Page said in September 2016 that he was taking a leave from the campaign.

The charges are part of Mueller's investigation into alleged Russian efforts to tilt the 2016 election in Trump's favor and potential collusion by Trump associates, allegations that Moscow and the Republican president deny.

Later, it emerged that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had obtained a secret court order to monitor Page's communications during the summer of 2016.

Page has often been contradictory about whom he met on the trip, but his testimony Thursday was under oath.

MR. SCHIFF: Dr. Page, I'm referring to Bates stamp [REDACTED] in which you relate that you had received insights and outreach from Russian legislators and senior members of the Presidential administration. At the Republican National Convention, Page told the committee that he spoke with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and the subject of USA sanctions on Russia "may have briefly come up in some context". "Near the end of the dinner, Page approached Sessions to say hello and thanked the then-senator for the dinner, and Page also mentioned he was headed to Russian Federation".

Only 7 percent of Trump voters say they believe that members of the campaign team colluded with Russian Federation.
