Carter Page, the former foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump's campaign who has come under scrutiny for past contacts with Russian operatives, testified for 6.5 hours Thursday before the House Intelligence Committee. Page did not have a lawyer with him.

Page was asked about a trip to Moscow that he took during the campaign and whether any campaign officials were aware he was going, CNN reports. He said he told Jeff Sessions, who was leading the campaign's foreign policy team, in passing at a campaign dinner (the only time they met), and Sessions had no notable response.
