Devin Nunes and the big Carter Page contradiction

Carter PAge

"Totally uninterested" is rather hyperbolic, considering the extensive coverage the document has received, but many journalists do indeed wonder whether the memo is much more than an incomplete, politically motivated account.

While President Trump and his supporters have tried to downplay Page's role with the campaign, in March 2016, Trump referred to Page as a member of his national security advisory council during an interview with The Washington Post editorial board.

"Now that a few of the misdeeds against the Trump Movement have been partially revealed, I look forward to updating my pending legal action in opposition to DOJ this weekend in preparation for Monday's next small step on the long, potholed road toward helping to restore law and order in our great country".

Page, a U.S. Naval Academy graduate who had years of experience as an energy consultant in Russian Federation, joined the Trump campaign as a foreign policy advisor.

Page said during the ABC News interview on Tuesday that he "never spoke" with Trump "any time in my life". The letter in which Page's own words appear was recently obtained by TIME. The Steele dossier does not identify its sources and Page has denied any wrongdoing.

Palestinian man shot dead by Israeli forces
Tensions in the region have risen since US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December. Palestinian officials have also condemned and rejected the move.

Podobny, protected from prosecution by diplomatic immunity, has returned to Russian Federation. Page says he had subsequent similar meetings, describing them to TIME as "really plain-vanilla stuff".

"The math on that... the 19 percent had a market value of about 11 billion dollars, so if you think I am going to get paid off some way... that seems like a pretty... pretty hefty sum", Page commented.

Page's extensive Russian contacts again became a focus for investigators in 2016 and a warrant was obtained under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to surveil him.

Stephanopoulos then noted that Page had given documents to someone the Federal Bureau of Investigation later charged with espionage.

Campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told CNN at the time that Page is "certainly not part of the campaign I'm running".

"I was teaching a course down Broadway here at NYU and I told them a couple of things about what I was talking about in my course and I gave them notes, or documents, that I gave my students", explained of his exchange with this person.
