The March 24, 2016 email in question was highlighted in the plea agreement Papadopoulos entered into after lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about the extent of his contacts with individuals like Joseph Mifsud, a London-based professor of diplomacy who allegedly spent months trying to connect Papadopoulos with Russian officials.
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. "I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians". 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.
Special counsel Robert Mueller, who has impaneled a grand jury in his probe of the collusion allegations, charged Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and another aide, Rick Gates, with money laundering on Monday.
Sessions appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee again in October.
Asked about a meeting in which aide George Papadopoulos suggested arranging a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump told reporters on Friday: "I don't remember much about that meeting".
TRUMP: You know, the saddest thing is that because I'm the president of the United States, I am not supposed to be involved with the Justice Department.
"You know, it'll come out", Page said. He also testified that he was "not aware" of anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicating with the Russians.
The person familiar with Sessions' activity during the campaign said his testimony has been truthful and consistent.
Sessions has been dogged over his testimony before Congress about interactions with Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Page said it was the only time he met Sessions.
"He needs to clarify his testimony before our committee", said Judiciary Committee member Senator Richard Blumenthal.
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.
"It might be worth writing a letter and saying 'What happened?' I wouldn't mind writing a letter, because he was pretty definitive he never had that discussion about Russia", Graham of SC said in an interview.
Mr Gordon described the notion of the Trump campaign colluding with Russian Federation in the 2016 U.S. election as "the biggest hoax in history".
Conaway said that Page was "fulsome" in his answers and he answered all of the questions the committee asked.
During his confirmation hearing in January, Sessions denied any knowledge that members of the Trump campaign communicated with Russian officials.
