Papadopoulos said Mifsud invited him to a British hotel for breakfast, where the professor claimed he had information that the Kremlin had some of Clinton's emails.
The documents recount the call Trump placed on his first full day in office to the then-acting park service director, Michael Reynolds.
Though Sessions testified in November of 2017 that he "pushed back" on the idea, in Papadopoulos' interview with ABC Sunday morning, he described Sessions' reaction to the suggestion at the time as "quite enthusiastic".
Papadopoulos was the second person ordered to prison in the sprawling, 16-month Russian Federation collusion investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
CNN's Tapper pressed Papadopoulos about whether and with whom he might have shared what he learned from Mifsud about Russians' having Clinton's emails.
Papadopoulos lashed out Monday on his Twitter account against Alexander Downer, the former Australian ambassador to the United Kingdom, who reported that the campaign aide had told him over wine that Russian Federation had damaging information on Hillary Clinton. He added that members of the campaign were "fully aware" of his efforts.
Abby Hunstsman pressed Papadopoulos on the believability of his story, noting people find it unusual he "wouldn't even try and find a way to contact the campaign to let them know that someone had Clinton's emails".

Harding University President Bruce McLarty shared his favorite memory of Jean with students in chapel Friday morning. Reporters pressed the police chief about the officer's mental state when she entered the apartment at 1210 S.
When asked what he had to say about Sessions' statement, Papadopoulos said his memory of the entire saga was very different from the attorney general's.
Papadopoulos replied not doing so was his biggest regret.
"It was at best begrudging efforts to cooperate and we don't think they were substantial or significant in any regard", he said. His fear? That he would be swept into a brewing scandal about Russian contacts and miss out on a job in the Trump administration. The special counsel recommended a sentence of up to six months.
After the judge issued the sentence, Papadopoulos stepped away from the defense table and paused in a long embrace with his wife, Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos.
Bongino said the media is not covering the interaction with Mifsud as the facts appear to bear it out. "In addition, public reports have said he has disappeared and hasn't been seen for months", said spokeswoman Adrienne Watson. Trump has dismissed Papadopoulos as a low-level campaign aide. "Of course I'm remorseful, I'm contrite and I did lie [to the FBI] but you know you're just taken off guard, I guess, in such a momentous occasion where you're potentially sitting there incriminating the president".
Ahead of his sentencing, Papadopoulos asked the court to give him probation for his charge of lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, claiming he was "young" and lied out of "misguided loyalty to his master".
"I actively sought to leverage my contacts with the professor to host this meeting", Papadopoulos said, referring to a professor who is believed to be a Russian government operative.
