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.
Also on Thursday, former Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page told Congress in a six-hour, closed-door testimony that he told Sessions he was traveling to Russian Federation during the presidential campaign, according to an account he gave to CNN.
Sessions was present at that meeting, and former campaign adviser J.D. Gordon told The New York Times that Sessions opposed the idea "and he said no one should talk about" the proposed meeting because Sessions did not want the idea associated with the Trump campaign.
Franken asked: "If there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?"

Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Oregon, told CBS News there is "no question" Sessions needs to appear before Congress again in an open session to "reconcile" his testimony. It is rare to see cases for perjury to Congress generally because the exchanges are often imprecise or rather fluid in nature.
In his traditional Friday appearance on Shepard Smith Reporting, Wallace noted that a new Attorney General might be inclined to get involved in the Russian Federation probe, which Sessions has recused himself from.
