The White House aide was recently questioning by the special counsel's team probing Russia's involvement in the 2016 presidential elections and a court document ties him to an adviser who already admitted lying about his Russian connections.

"We believe, strategically, Sprint needs to focus on market share gains, which have been moderately successful, but we believe its current valuation should not be above the market share gain leader, T-Mobile", Nispel wrote. "Removing Sessions would be destabilizing to the investigation, and Democrats don't want to upset the apple cart".

Papadopoulos emailed Miller from London on April 25, 2016, after speaking multiple times to a Russian connected to the Kremlin's ministry of foreign affairs to relay an "open invitation for Trump to meet Russian president Vladimir Putin".

"The interviews will ideally be completed by Thanksgiving, or shortly thereafter", said White House special counsel Ty Cobb in an interview with NPR. He indicated that foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos made Sessions aware of his Contacts with Russian Representatives. He responded, "I did not - and I'm not aware of anyone else that did".

That could make the Jewish ultra-conservative a key link in the still-evolving probe - and a top target for Mueller's team, who may hope to get Miller to spill the beans on even higher ups.

Donald Trump may be out of the country, but the Russian Federation investigation is boiling hot after White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller was interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Page told the panel he had informed some members of the Trump campaign about the trip, including Sessions.

Shares of Sprint Corp. were downgraded to underweight at Keybanc Capital Markets following the end of merger talks between Sprint and T-Mobile US Inc. over the weekend. Lawyers for Papadopoulos had no immediate comment.

Photo Carter Page, who advised the Trump campaign about foreign policy, spoke with reporters in Washington last week after being questioned by the House Intelligence Committee. If Rosenstein was ousted or stepped aside, Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand would step into the acting attorney general role; Solicitor General Noel Francisco would be next in line.

And he again denied any knowledge of such contacts in an October 18 hearing. "Now [they] want to know whether Clovis and others reported these activities and others related to Russia, and if so, to whom", this source said. "They can't accuse Trump of politicizing if they're doing the same thing". "We are providing you with notice in advance because we expect you to respond", ranking committee Democrat Rep. John Conyers and his colleagues wrote to Sessions, according to reports in Reuters.

In another hearing on June 13, Sessions said: "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".

"No, I think that's a violation".
