Carter Page Goes Down in Flames in Bizarre New Interview

Adjust Comment Print

Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page bragged that he was an adviser to the Kremlin in a letter obtained by TIME that raises new questions about the extent of Page's contacts with the Russian government over the years. To the best of my knowledge, the president of the United States has never met Carter Page.

Page, who is at the center of the current controversy over the alleged Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department FISA warrant abuses, claimed that the so-called Nunes memo put out by Republican lawmakers proves he was improperly surveilled.

Page insisted, as the memo says, that the FISA warrant relied on a controversial and unverified dossier funded by Democrats and put together by Christopher Steele.

But President Donald Trump argued after declassifying the memo that it showed that "a lot of people should be ashamed of themselves".

Page and Ingraham also discussed a paragraph in the dossier that Page disputed, which said he met with Russian oil magnate Igor Sechin.

Page said the findings in the Nunes memo matched his own long-held belief that the attention on him was politically motivated. On Monday, the House intelligence Committee voted to allow the release the Democrats assessment of that evidence.

That leaves both Wilmer Flores and Jose Reyes to play utility roles, giving the Mets a considerable amount of infield depth. The fact that the Mets signed a third baseman means they don't have high hopes for David Wright contributing in 2018.

Page told Time he "sat in on and contributed to a few roundtable discussion with people from around the world", starting when he met a Russian diplomat at an energy conference in New York City.

The New York Times reporters and The New York Times Company seek to disclose those orders to facilitate the ongoing public debate over the propriety of the surveillance orders and the related investigation being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Page confirmed to ABC News that he is the individual identified as "Male-1" in a 2015 court document submitted in a case involving the Russian spies.

At issue is whether the federal probe into the Trump campaign's Russian Federation ties is infected with political bias, as Republicans say - or whether the GOP is using deceitful tactics to quash the probe, as Democrats insist. "So in terms of, when you say, "Giving documents to a quote-unquote spy"... it sounds a lot worse than reality, but that's reality".
