The question asked of Sessions in Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation was:
'Several of the President-Elect's nominees or senior advisers have Russian ties. Have you been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian Government about the 2016 election, either before or after election day?'
Sessions answered the question as asked, without volunteering any other information, as anyone should do in a court hearing.
"

Sessions was questioned twice. He received a written list of questions. The question you mention was on the written list.

During the verbal questioning in his confirmation hearing, the following exchange occurred:
SENATOR AL FRANKEN: "If there was any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this (2016) campaign, what would you do?"

SESSIONS: "I'm not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians."

It was later discovered that Sessions spoke with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in July and September of 2016.

The July meeting occurred at the Republican National Convention.

The September meeting was a private meeting in Senator Sessions' office.
