Sen. Lindsey Graham on Sunday called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to return to the Senate intelligence panel and "tell us everything you know about Russia."

In remarks on "Fox News Sunday," the South Carolina Republican and member of the Senate Intelligence Committee called for a second grilling in light of revelations that former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos raised the idea of a meeting between then-candidate Donald Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin — and that Sessions quashed it.

"Jeff, you need to tell us everything you know about Russia," Graham said. "So yeah, he probably should come back, and answer the question yet again 'did you know anything about an effort by the Trump campaign to meet with Russia, not just collude with Russia.'"

"This is getting a bit old with Jeff Sessions," he continued, according to The Hill, which first posted the interview.

"I asked a question 'Did anyone ever talk to you about talking with the Russians?' I didn't ask about collusions. So we now know that somebody at a meeting, Mr. Papadopoulos, raised the idea of meeting with Putin. There's nothing wrong with Trump meeting with Putin if he wanted to it. It would be wrong to have the Russians help the Trump campaign."

Sessions told the Judiciary Committee earlier this year he was unaware of any contact between the Trump campaign and Russians.
