  • Trump didn't dismiss idea of Putin meeting

Page said the trips were "completely unrelated to my limited volunteer role with the campaign and as I've done dozens of times throughout my life". News that he had mentioned the visit to Attorney General Jeff Sessions drew headlines, as it complicated Sessions' claims that he did not know about the Trump campaign's Russian Federation contacts.

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.

Special counsel Robert Mueller, who has impaneled a grand jury in his probe of the collusion allegations, charged Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and another aide, Rick Gates, with money laundering on Monday. Various news outlets Wednesday unveiled Clovis as the unnamed "campaign supervisor" in Mueller's indictments, with whom George Papadopoulos exchanged emails about meeting with suspected Russian officials. "I'm not recused from Russia, '" Wallace said. The Minnesota Democrat said the latest disclosure suggests that the American people "cannot trust your word".

Mobile And Sprint's Merger Plans Are Dead
Neither Sprint nor T-Mobile immediately replied to requests for comment by CNNMoney. "We won't stop now". The companies expected to have a better shot at the merger this year under the Trump administration.

According to a document describing charges against the adviser, Papadopoulos attended a "national security meeting" in DC with then-candidate Trump and other foreign policy advisers, on March 31 2016.

During his January confirmation hearing to become attorney general, Sessions told the Judiciary Committee that he had had no communication with Russian officials, only to have The Post reveal in March that he had spoken twice with the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak.

"Once again, developments in the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election have brought to light evidence that you failed to tell the truth about your interactions with Russian operatives during the campaign", Franken wrote in a letter to Sessions on Thursday in which he asked the attorney general to clarify his accounts to the Senate.

According to Kay van Petersen, a Saxo Bank analyst, in the next decade, each unit of bitcoin will be worth $100,000. CME Group's introduction of bitcoin future contracts could bring more institutional investors into the arena.

He added that he had "mentioned" the July 2016 trip "to a few other people", but Page declined to be more specific.

On Friday, he told The Times that "I had a very brief hello to a couple of people". A guy he had never met before, grabs him, 'Hey, I'm out on the team.

While Democrats made clear that the Papadopoulos revelations raise new questions about whether Sessions told the truth to Congress, there was little indication they'd pursue the politically and legally uncertain possibility that the nation's top law enforcement official could be prosecuted for perjury.
