US Attorney General Jeff Sessions says he now recalls a meeting with then-candidate Donald Trump and aides where campaign connections to Russian Federation were discussed, despite earlier testifying that he was unaware of any such contacts.
"My answer stands for itself, I guess", Sessions said.
"But I will not accept and reject accusations that I have ever lied under oath. That is a lie".
The Kremlin denies that and Trump says there was no collusion between his campaign and Russian officials.

Since that hearing, Mueller unsealed a guilty plea from a campaign foreign policy staffer, Papadopoulos, for false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He was part of the foreign policy council that Sessions chaired, and the two are among the men in a March 2016 photograph that Trump posted on social media. Papadopoulos, in pleading guilty to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, has admitted he told Trump and a group of other campaign officials, including Sessions, that he had contacts who could help arrange a meeting between Trump and Putin.
Sessions said that was the version of events he recalled. "Each of those are pretty special, factual situations", Sessions said, "and we will use the proper standards". Sessions asked with a slight smirk. The Justice Department made the announcement Monday in responding to concerns from Republican lawmakers. Democrats on the committee have already signalled that they intend to press Sessions on his knowledge of contacts between Russians and aides to the Trump campaign.
