Former Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page privately testified Thursday that he mentioned to Jeff Sessions he was traveling to Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign - as new questions emerge about the attorney general's comments to Congress about Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

Asked who else was informed, Page played coy, saying, "It will come out".

The development comes days after Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and an associate were placed under house arrest on money-laundering charges linked to an investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into allegations that the campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

It is the latest example to emerge of a Trump aide meeting with Russian officials during the 2016 election after initially denying that such contacts occurred.

Output in the construction sector edged into growth last month despite confidence sinking to a near five-year low. A reading above 50 indicates an expansion while one below 50 denotes a contraction in activity.

But the chairman of Trump's national security team, then Alabama senator and now attorney general Jeff Sessions, shut down the idea of a Putin meeting at the March 31, 2016, gathering, according to a person in the room. "I am deeply troubled that this newest revelation strongly suggests that the Senate ― and the American public ― can not trust your word". In that capacity, he oversaw foreign policy George Papadopoulos adviser and encouraged him to meet with Russian contacts.

Both Papadopoulos' and Page's statements appear to cast doubt on comments made by Sessions to the Senate multiple times since his confirmation hearing in early January, as well as remarks made by the president.

"I'd like to minimize bringing more people into it".

Court documents said Clovis told Papadopoulos: "Great work".

Democratic Senators Richard Blumenthal (Conn.) and Patrick Leahy (Vt.) issued statements demanding Sessions testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. He wasn't aware of any ongoing exchanges of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government, the person said.

"He needs to clarify his testimony before our committee", Judiciary Committee member Sen. Jeff Sessions and "a few people" on the Trump campaign.

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.

Following the Post report, Sessions recused himself from the Justice Department's Russian Federation probes - an action that infuriated Trump.
