Devin Nunes and the big Carter Page contradiction

Republicans concede key FBI 'footnote' in Carter Page warrant Devin Nunes and the big Carter Page contradiction
| 08 February, 2018, 01:03

The memo alleges the unverified anti-Trump dossier - funded by the Clinton campaign and the DNC - was the driving force behind the warrant to conduct surveillance on Page.

And in November 2017, Page told the House Intelligence Committee he was invited to speak in Russian Federation after joining the campaign, and that senior campaign officials knew about the engagement. "You also have to show he's violating a criminal statute", DeSantis added.

The Nunes memo also indicates that information from a paid opposition researcher - former British spy Christopher Steele - was a source cited in the government's application for a FISA warrant. Was it just some pretextual (sic.) thing, or was there honestly something where they thought he was violating the law?

Both Nunes (who was part of Trump's transition team) and the Democrats have reasons to spin the analysis, either to suggest the FBI's investigation was never legitimate or to downplay whether the FBI omitted information that might have caused the court to reject the application.

But as Stephanopoulos pointed out, that were "a lot of people" advising the Kremlin doesn't change the fact that Page was one of them.

Carter Page, the former Trump campaign adviser who is the focus of a Republican memo alleging the Federal Bureau of Investigation abused surveillance rules to spy on him, said on Tuesday he's never communicated with the president. "And when I actually saw it, it was even worse than I could have possibly imagined".


"That does lead people to believe - is this guy working with Russian Federation?"

Of course, that wasn't Page's only connection to Russian Federation. "So it's pretty insane", Page said. Page noted that he served as an "informal, unpaid adviser" of Trump's.

"Carter Page is a person who's going out and telling everybody that he was part of the campaign; he had no formal role in the campaign". He left the campaign in September 2016 amid controversy.

"I sent a letter to [former FBI] Director [James] Comey on Sunday, Sept. 25, 2016, two days after the defamatory articles came out against me", Pge said.

Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page says in a newly resurfaced video that he attended "a number of meetings" with President TrumpDonald John TrumpSchiff: Nunes gave Trump "secretly altered" version of memo Davis: "Deep state" existed in '16 - but it elected Trump Former Trump legal spokesman to testify to Mueller about undisclosed call: report MORE. "If you have any questions about this witch hunt" - which is what I called it - 'please don't hesitate to contact me.
