Carter Page Takes the Fifth, Doesn't Turn Over Russia Documents

Carter Page Takes the Fifth, Doesn't Turn Over Russia Documents”

The House Intelligence Committee is set to question President Trump's former body guard of two decades on the details of Trump's 2013 trip to Moscow, as well as the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, The Washington Post reported Friday. Page described the conversation to CNN after he finished talking to the House intelligence committee.

After the visit, sent an email to another trump campaign official, and, according to the report, this email was read aloud during a closed-door testimony.

The latest development comes amid turmoil for the Trump administration and the Trump 2016 presidential campaign.

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.

In his brief post-testimony comments Thursday, Page instead focused on his outrage that he was included in a notorious dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steel; Politico reported in the unverified dossier, Page was described as an emissary for the Trump campaign to the Kremlin.

"It was great to have this discussion and have the opportunity to testify", Page told reporters following the hearing.

"You know, it'll come out", Page said.

In March he told Fox News that he did not help the Russians in their efforts to influence the campaign.

Page reportedly mentioned to Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III during a group dinner last June that he was embarking on an trip to Russian Federation.

Special counsel Robert Mueller, who has impaneled a grand jury in his probe of the collusion allegations, charged Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and another aide, Rick Gates, with money laundering on Monday. Sessions had previously said under oath that he had no knowledge of anyone in the Trump campaign communicating with Russian operatives.

But the trip raised eyebrows among United States officials, who believed that Russian operatives tried to use Page to influence Trump's campaign.

Asked about his relationship with fellow campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts with Russian officials, Page told reporters: "I had nothing to do with any of that", Politico reported.
