The Trump campaign's cocktail of stupid

The Trump campaign's cocktail of stupid

In August 2016, Clovis encouraged Papadopoulos to organize an "off the record" meeting with Russian officials, according to court documents.

Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts, R-Kan., had told reporters that the hearing would be held November 9, but his office has said the details were still being worked out. Sessions was head of the panel.

It's possible Papadopoulos may have been at Trump events that Sessions also attended, including a dinner at the Capitol Hill Club with some members of the foreign policy committee during the summer of 2016, the person said. The Justice Department had no comment.

The lawyer's statement said Clovis opposed any trip to Russian Federation for Trump or his campaign staff but noted that Clovis may not have made his opposition known when "a volunteer made suggestions on a foreign policy matter".

Sessions deflected the questions by maintaining that presidents are entitled to have private discussions with Cabinet secretaries, saying at one point, "I do not confirm or deny the existence of any communication between the president that I consider to be confidential".

"Writing to the Russian contact a week before the Republican National Convention, Papadopoulos proposed a meeting for August or September in the United Kingdom that would include "my national chairman and maybe one other foreign policy adviser" and members of Putin's office and Russia's foreign ministry", the filings said. The source added that Papadopoulos was viewed by those in attendance "as someone who didn't have a lot of credibility".

On pardons, Sekulow says: "I have not had a conversation with the president regarding pardons".

At his Senate confirmation hearing in January, Sessions denied any contacts with Russian officials during the presidential campaign.

Grand Canyon, Yosemite and 15 other national parks may double entry fees
The parks selected for the peak season increase were the 17 most popular park sites that charge entrance fees, Olson said. According to the National Park Service , the peak season for each park would be defined as its busiest five-month period.

Trump himself did not dismiss the idea of meeting the Russian president when it was suggested to him by Papadopoulos in a March 2016 campaign meeting, a source privy to the conversation told CNN Wednesday.

The circumstances of Comey's firing are among many events being investigated by Robert Mueller, who was appointed as the Justice Department's special counsel to look into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian Federation to influence the outcome of the 2016 election.

Podesta, the elder brother of former Hillary Clinton aide John Podesta, announced that he would step aside from powerhouse Democratic firm "The Podesta Group" after coming under investigation by Robert Mueller.

However, if it's true, the email is the clearest evidence yet that the Trump campaign sought to make contact with Russian officials.

Even so, it's unclear how hard Democrats will go after Sessions even if they conclude that he lied to Congress. 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.

At the Senate judiciary hearing last month, Sen.

A Republican official close to Clovis told CNN earlier Thursday that he remained loyal to Trump, adding that Clovis would not have fought the White House in backing away from his USDA nomination if asked.

"I'm in the office early and leave late; it's very smooth", Trump continued.
