Carter Page appeared on Fox News with Laura Ingraham last night to break open the FBI’s case for the FISA warrant on him.
Recall that the Steele dossier, funded by the DNC, was used by the FBI to get the FISA warrant in order to surveil Page.
Their argument was that Page, a Trump campaign adviser, had been in contact with Russian officials.
The dossier names one Russian in particular: Igor Sechin.
But Page set the record straight: “No, I’ve never met Sechin in my life.”
We know the Russians were feeding lies to Hillary’s campaign which were in turn fed to Chris Steele for his dossier.
The gist: the warrant to surveil the Trump campaign was based on political lies to benefit Hillary. Period.
Here’s more from Daily Caller…
Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page said Monday in an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham he never met a Russian official who allegedly offered him money in exchange for lifting sanctions, as claimed in the infamous dossier compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele.
Page, a former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser and subject of a FISA warrant that was sought after by the FBI due to claims made in the Steele dossier, said he had never met a Russian official named Igor Sechin, who, the dossier claims, supposedly offered Page billions of dollars in return for him pressuring the Trump administration to lift sanctions against Russia.
Donald Trump Jr., who was previously on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” earlier Monday night, stated that Carter Page was in no way an essential part of the Trump campaign. During Laura Ingraham’s interview, Page agreed with that point.
Later in the interview, Page said he had never met Sechin.
“You could tell that there were positive opportunities on the horizon in terms of U.S., Russia relations,” said Page.
“Was that Sechin? Was that Igor Sechin?” asked Ingraham.
“No, I’ve never met Sechin in my life,” Page responded.
