"He didn't say yes and he didn't say no", the official said, declining to be more specific about Trump's response to Papadopoulos.
"Yes or no, were you on email chains with Papadopoulos?"
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders termed Papadopoulos' role with the campaign as "extremely limited".
On March 31, 2016, Trump tweeted a photo of his meeting with the advisory board, with Papadopoulos among a handful of advisers at the president's table.
Page, who told the Senate intelligence committee in May he had "brief interactions" with low-level Russian officials in 2013, traveled to Moscow in July 2016, shortly after Papadopoulos forwarded a request from Russian officials to meet with Trump or someone in the Trump campaign. One suspects, from his delivery, that if Jason Voorhees had been listed, Trump would have read his name and said: "Hockey player".
In May, Papadopoulos had sent an email to a "high-ranking campaign official" with the subject line "Request from Russian Federation to meet Mr. Trump". Sessions, however, did attend, and he and Papadopoulos sat next to each other, according to the source who was in the room. A former Morningside College economics professor, he took an extended leave of absence from the Sioux City school when he joined the Trump campaign as national co-chairman and chief policy adviser in August 2015.
It's unclear how frequently Papadopoulos was in contact with the campaign officials.
In a footnote, the statement notes that the email was forwarded between campaign officials and who wrote they should discuss: "We need someone to communicate that DT is not doing these trips".
If Team Trump can't convince the public that Papadopoulos was a nobody, they'd at least like people to believe that his repeated efforts to set up a meeting between the campaign and the Russian government were rebuffed by more senior Trump officials.
