The comment by Sessions to a House of Representatives panel did not reveal any new link between the Trump team and Russian Federation but it was another example of the top USA law enforcement official offering a different version of events as lawmakers try to work out if the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation in the 2016 election.
After that meeting, Sessions said, he did not have "any further knowledge" of additional contacts between the campaign and Russian officials. John Conyers, mentioned to Sessions that he was once on President Richard Nixon's "enemies list" - and said the current conduct by the administration is reminiscent of the Watergate era. He said recently that officials there "should be looking at the Democrats" and that it was "very discouraging" they were not "going after Hillary Clinton".
Earlier this year, the department appointed a special counsel, the former F.B.I. director Robert S. Mueller III, to take over the government's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and the possible involvement of Trump campaign aides.
The panel's investigation into Russian meddling has been stalled for weeks amid disputes between Republicans and Democrats.

Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee advised Sessions in a letter last week that they meant to press him on what they said were "inconsistencies" between the attorney general's past statements and the new revelations.
Papadopoulos, who pled guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts with Russia, told the Trump campaign meeting that he had connections with Moscow and could help arrange a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to court documents.
Sessions said although his Justice Department will consider investigations into Hillary Clinton, he could not say whether he would recuse himself from the matter, contradicting his previous statements on the matter.
Mr. Sessions declined to say whether he was recused. Sessions supervised the advisory group on which Papadopoulos sat and reportedly rejected his suggestion for Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin to meet.
The Attorney General is set to testify before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

Of course, the reason is clear, which is that the Syrian regime does not have enough military capabilities due to its losses. This is in addition to military gatherings, which the Lebanese party Hezbollah established in other posts in Syria.
"It's time for Jeff Sessions to name a Special Counsel and get answers for the American people". The Justice Department made the announcement Monday in responding to concerns from Republican lawmakers. But he said he had no memory of that conversation.
Prosecutors' findings - including a potential recommendation for a broader inquiry, led by a special counsel - will be reported to the attorney general or the deputy attorney "as appropriate", according to a Justice Department letter sent to key House Republicans.
President Donald Trump himself has repeatedly used social media to urge the Justice Department to investigate the deal, including in a series of Twitter posts this month in which he lamented not having more direct influence over the affairs of the law enforcement agency.
Gordon has also said that Papadopoulos went around him and Sessions and that they did not know he had continued to try to arrange such a meeting.
