Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions met Russia’s ambassador during the election despite telling his confirmation he had “no communications with the Russians”.
Mr Sessions stated on Thursday he did not meet “with any Russians at any time to discuss any political campaign”.
Russian interference claims in the election have determined President Trump.
The US intelligence community believes the alleged Russian hacking of Democratic organisations was carried out to help Mr Trump defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Mr Trump’s National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn, was fired last month after he misled the White House about his conversations with Mr Kislyak, allegedly regarding sanctions against Moscow.
According to the Washington Post Reported that Mr Sessions and Mr Kislyak held a private conversation in Mr Sessions’s office in September and had spoken earlier in the summer at a meeting with several other ambassadors.
And his meeting with Kislyak appeared when he was the important part of Trump’s campaign.
Mr Sessions responded: “I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians. And I’m unable to comment on it.”
According to The Justice department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said there had been “absolutely nothing misleading about his answer” at the confirmation hearing.
