The WashingtonPost also reported earlier this week that Papadopoulos sat next to Sessions during a dinner at the Capitol Hill Club for campaign advisers weeks before the Republican National Convention, according to another person who attended.
At a June Senate intelligence committee hearing, Sessions testified that he wasn't aware of any conversations between "anyone connected to the Trump campaign" and Russians about "any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States".
Papadopoulos emailed a person described as a "senior policy adviser" on the campaign to tell them of "messages coming in from Moscow". At least two Democratic members of the Senate judiciary committee, Al Franken of Minnesota and Patrick Leahy of Vermont, have asked the FBI to investigate whether Sessions committed perjury during his confirmation hearings.
In a written questionnaire to the Senate Judiciary Committee during his confirmation, Sessions also told the panel he was not in contact with anyone associated with the Russian government - despite the fact that Sessions met twice with Sergey Kislyak, then the Russian ambassador to the USA, during the campaign.
Russian Federation says it did not interfere in the election and Trump has denied any collusion.
The newspaper said the email was read aloud during the closed-door testimony on Thursday to the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, which is investigating efforts by Russian Federation to tip the November 2016 election in Trump's favor and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.
Court documents unsealed this week have renewed interest in whether Attorney General Jeff Session misled Congress when he testified recently that neither he nor anyone else was in contact with Russian operatives during the 2016 presidential campaign, CBS News' Jeff Pegues reports. "I am deeply troubled that this newest revelation strongly suggests that the Senate ― and the American public ― can not trust your word".
On Sessions, Gordon said: "I don't fault the senator for not recalling things Carter (Page) or George (Papadopoulos) may have told him in private settings". 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. "I sent him a letter and I would like for him to come before the judiciary meeting again and explain himself".
On Wednesday, Democrats said Sessions needs to clarify his comments.
He added: "I certainly think it's a legitimate area of inquiry" for lawmakers to pursue. It was the first meeting of then-candidate Trump's foreign policy team at a time when he was being roundly criticized for not having foreign policy credentials and not being able to name any major players who were helping him out.
Conaway said that Page was "fulsome" in his answers and he answered all of the questions the committee asked. In testimony to the Senate Judiciary committee, Sessions has denied knowing anything about contacts between the campaign and Russians or Russian government intermediaries.
Sessions replied, "I have not seen anything that would indicate collusion with the Russians to impact the campaign". And I'm very frustrated by that.
