Attorney General Jeff Sessions Now Recalls Rejecting Russia Trip For George Papadopoulos | MSNBC


>>> WE ARE MORE NEW NEWS ABOUT RUSSIA BREAKING NEWS IN FROM OUR NBC COLLEAGUES

THEY ARE REPORTING THAT JEFF SESSIONS WERE REJECTING A PROPOSAL BY GEORGE PAPADOPOULOS WHO TRIED TO USE RUSSIAN CONTACTS TO SET UP A MEETING INTELLIGENCE NATIONAL REPORT KEN JOINS ME NOW >> WHY IS IT IMPORTANT THAT JEFF SESSIONS IS REMEMBERING JUST NOW THAT HE REJECTED THIS PROPOSAL? >> BECAUSE HE TESTIFIED UNDER OATH THAT HE WAS AWARE OF NO DISCUSSIONS WITH RUSSIANS AT LEAST CONCERNING COLLUSION THAT MAY BE WHERE HE HAS WIGGLE ROOM THE GUILTY PLEA OF PAPADOPOULOS CONTINUES

THEY WANT TO CALL JEFF SESSIONS BACK TO CONGRESS EITHER JUDICIARY AND GET HIM TO CLARIFY THIS IS NOW — THIS WOULD BE THE THIRD TIME HE HAS HAD TO AMEND HIS RECOLLECTIONS HE HAD TO SAY HE DID MEET WITH THE RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR ON TWO SEPARATE OCCASIONS SOME ACCUSED HIM OF PERJURY HE REJECTED THAT

HE RECUSED HIMSELF FROM THE TRUMP-RUSSIA INVESTIGATION AND THE QUESTION IS WHAT DID HE KNOW ABOUT WHAT PAPADOPOULOS WAS PROPOSING? THEY SUGGESTED TO RUSSIANED WANTED TO ARRANGE A MEETING BETWEEN DONALD TRUMP AND PUTIN SESSIONS IS SAYING HE REMEMBERS THAT AND HE REMEMBERS REJECTING IT HE DIDN'T REMEMBER ANYTHING WHEN HE WAS UNDER OATH >> AND WHILE IT HAPPENED IN PUBLIC TESTIMONY BEFORE CONGRESS, CAN WE HAVE VIDEO OF IT? LET'S TAKE A LISTEN >> I HAVE NEVER MET WITH OR HAD ANY CONVERSATION WITH ANY RUSSIANS OR ANY FOREIGN OFFICIALS CONCERNING ANY TYPE OF INTERFERENCE WITH ANY CAMPAIGN OR ELECTION IN THE UNITED STATES

FURTHER I HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF ANY SUCH CONVERSATIONS BY ANYONE CONNECTED TO THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND THE SUGGESTION THAT I PARTICIPATED IN ANY COLLUSION THAT I WAS AWARE OF ANY COLLUSION WITH THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT TO HURT THIS COUNTRY, WHICH I HAVE SERVED WITH HONOR FOR 35 YEARS OR TO UNDERMINE THE INTEGRITY OF THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS IS AN APPALLING LIE >> JEFF SESSIONS SAYING HE DOESN'T REMEMBER ANY CONVERSATION ABOUT THAT ONE QUICK QUESTION TO YOU IF SOMEBODY WANTS TO CLAIM HE PERJURED HIMSELF A SECOND TIME, WILL THEY HAVE ENOUGH TO MAKE THAT CLAIM? >> NOTICE THE CAREFUL LANGUAGE THERE

I PROBABLY — BECAUSE I SPENT A LOT OF TIME LISTENING TO PEOPLE TESTIFY, BUT NOTICE THAT HE REALLY DIDN'T ANSWER THE QUESTION HE SAID HE DIDN'T PARTICIPATE IN INTERFERENCE IN THAT CAMPAIGN >> REPORTEDLY THAT WAS BROUGHT UPUP IS ITTING AROUND A TABLE NOT CONSIDERED PARTICIPATING IN THAT SORT OF CONVERSATION? >> I SUSPECT — >> AND HE SAYS HE NOW REMEMBERS REJECTING IT

SO THAT'S PARTICIPATING IN A CONVERSATION, RIGHT? >> WELL, I WILL SAY YOU SAID HE DOESN'T REMEMBER IT IT IS INTERESTING HOW FEDERAL INVESTIGATIONS TEND TO SHARPEN ONE'S MEMORY WHAT HE MIGHT SAY IS I DIDN'T KNOW THAT THAT MEETING WITH PUTIN WAS ABOUT COLLUSION I THOUGHT WE WANTED TO DISCUSS FOREIGN POLICY ISSUES OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT SO THAT'S WHAT I THINK HE'LL DO

I KEPT TELLING SENATORS TO FOLLOW UP OR GET THEIR QUESTIONS ANSWERED >>> AND THAT IS THE SESSIONS POSITION AS I UNDERSTAND IT WHICH IS THAT HE DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THESE TO BE ABOUT COLLUSION WHICH IS WHY THE REALLY IMPORTANT QUESTION IS WHO IN THE CAMPAIGN KNEW THAT HE HAD BEEN OFFERED BY THESE RUSSIANS ON THE CLINTON AND THOUSANDS OF E-MAILS? DID THAT INFORMATION REACH JEFF
