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. You get the documents from him and tell him to go fuck himself.

Of course, that wasn't Page's only connection to Russian Federation.

"I certainly have been in a number of meetings with him and I've learned a tremendous amount from him", he said.

"Yes, we have 100 examples of leaks from our committee that we feel could only come from the other side", Nunes fired back.

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) encouraged Page's willingness to have the court transcripts released on "The Ingraham Angle" and urged the court to acquiesce with The Times' request.

When Yahoo News reported in September 2016 that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was probing Page's Russian connections, Trump campaign communications director Jason Miller told the Hill that Page had "never been a part of our campaign, period". Asked by Chris Hayes how many Kremlin bigshots and spies he'd encountered there, Page giggled. They don't wear ID badges, you know.

Melania Trump Refused to Pose for a Joint Picture With Her Husband
The First Lady has had a tough time as of late, with rumours about her husband's infidelity rife and her every move scrutinised. President Trump will tout the Republican tax cuts at a Blue Ash manufacturing company Monday afternoon.

However, when he was asked about his role with the Kremlin in Tuesday's interview, he made it seem like he was just one adviser among many, maintaining that The Kremlin was "bringing people from around the world" to help with the economic summit that was held in St. Petersburg.

President Trump famously feuds with the press, including The New York Times. Which may even be true. To win approval, investigators needed to provide probable cause that he was "knowingly engaging in clandestine intelligence gathering activities for or on behalf of" Russian Federation.

"Look, the probable cause, based on all the evidence that keeps dripping out and now has been substantiated with the Friday, you know, first memo, is that it was based on dodgy dossier which was, you know, a political stunt", Page responded.

GOP Coverup? Report Says Trump May Use Nunes Memo to Fire Rosenstein
NPR's Carrie Johnson reported that Democratic leaders in Congress rushed to respond to Trump's potential move against Rosenstein. President Donald Trump "would be inclined" to permit the release of a memo written by Democrats that rebuts a Republican.

"So you were recruited at one point by a Russian agent, then you wrote yourself that you were an informal adviser to the Kremlin". She adds bluntly but accurately: "Every one of them has lied when asked about their Russian contacts". But the memo actually reveals that the FBI's probe of the Trump campaign was triggered not by the Steele dossier, but by the actions of another Trump adviser, George Papadopoulos, who reportedly bragged to an Australian diplomat in May 2016 that the Russians had political dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Meanwhile, British dossier or no dossier-and it's worth noticing that Nunes memo makes no attempt to prove its contents false, merely attacks author Christopher Steele's presumed motives-it would have been gross dereliction of duty for USA intelligence not to give Carter Page a long, hard look.
