WASHINGTON - A foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump's presidential campaign met Russian government officials last year, The New York Times reported on Friday, citing testimony he gave this week to a US congressional committee.

In numerous media interviews in recent months, the adviser, Carter Page, has either denied meeting Russian government officials during a July 2016 trip to Moscow or said he met "mostly scholars," the newspaper said.

Page sent an email to at least one Trump campaign aide describing his insights after conversations with Russian government officials and others, The Times reported, citing a person familiar with the message.

The newspaper said the email was read aloud during the closed-door testimony on Thursday to the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, which is investigating efforts by Russia to tip the November 2016 election in Trump's favor and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Russia says it did not interfere in the election and Trump has denied any collusion.
