Carter Page told George Stephanopoulos he never met Donald Trump

After leaving his post as an adviser to the Trump campaign back in October 2016, Page took a trip to Russian Federation which put him back in the FBI's sights.

During an interview on Good Morning America on Tuesday, Carter Page admitted that he served as an adviser to the Kremlin before joining Donald Trump's campaign for president.

The memo also cites then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe as saying that the FBI could not have obtained the FISA warrant without the unverified Trump dossier produced by Steele. A controversial Republican intelligence memo released last week highlighted that Page had been targeted.

Page later popped up in Trump's presidential campaign. Page admits talking to the undercover Russian spy but said he did not realize that the man was an intelligence agent at the time and that he did not share anything sensitive.

"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".

Of course, that wasn't Page's only connection to Russian Federation. When asked what he thinks those documents would show, Page said, "I have no idea".

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

But that seems at odds with what Page told a reporter during a question-and-answer session after a speech he gave in Moscow in December 2016.

Carter Page's words are coming back to haunt him. Podobnyy and one of the Russians had diplomatic immunity and left the U.S. The third Russian was arrested and eventually expelled from the U.S.in April 2017.

During the interview, Stephanopoulos pointed out to Page that he gave documents to a Russian agent whom the Federal Bureau of Investigation had charged with espionage. During their meeting, Page provided documents to the diplomat which he claimed on "GMA" were just notes from a course he was teaching at New York University. I think he is an idiot and forgot who I am.

Gidley added that, "While President Trump has the utmost respect and support for the rank-and-file members of the F.B.I., the anti-Trump bias at the top levels that appear to have existed is troubling".
