Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page said Friday that he had told Attorney General Jeff Sessions "in passing" - and "mentioned it to a few other people" - about a planned trip to Moscow last summer during the presidential campaign.
"You know, it'll come out", Page said.
Also, it was only a matter of time before people began speculating who would be cast to play him in the inevitable made-for-TV movie about Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation campaign-meddling investigation.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is facing renewed questions over how much he knew about Russian efforts to interfere with the USA election, after it was revealed this week that he attended meetings with a Trump campaign adviser who claimed to have extensive contacts with Russians.
Democratic Senators Richard Blumenthal (Conn.) and Patrick Leahy (Vt.) issued statements demanding Sessions testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
As part of the inquiry into potential collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and the Kremlin, Mueller's office also announced the surprising news on Monday that his team had gained the cooperation of Papadopoulos, a former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, who has been working with federal investigators following his own guilty plea that he lied to the FBI.

"I did not, and I'm not aware of anyone else that did, and I don't believe it happened", Sessions said. Other aides were wary of the idea before Sessions himself "spoke vehemently against the idea" and asked others not to discuss it, the Times reported earlier this week.
Politico previously reported that Page told then-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, his fellow national security adviser J.D. Gordon, and spokeswoman Hope Hicks about the trip.
Sessions' discussion with Page will fuel further scrutiny about what the attorney general knew about connections between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation - and communications about Russian Federation that he did not disclose despite a persistent line of questioning in three separate hearings this year. Jeff Sessions and "a few people" on the Trump campaign.
When Tapper asked if Sessions, now the United States attorney general, was "the only one on the campaign that knew about the trip", Page replied: "I mentioned it to a few people".
In his traditional Friday appearance on Shepard Smith Reporting, Wallace noted that a new Attorney General might be inclined to get involved in the Russian Federation probe, which Sessions has recused himself from.
"I would think that Carter page aspect of this is... troubling", Wallace said.
