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.
When asked if he ever had any direct contact with Trump in any form - such as a phone call, email, letter or a text - Page told ABC's "Good Morning America" that he has never communicated with the president, and continued to deny reports that he worked with the Russian government. McClatchy reported previous year that in 2008, the U.S. Embassy in Turkmenistan sent a cable to the U.S. State Department describing how Page had met with government officials in the country, which was formerly part of the Soviet Union, about possibly working for their oil companies.
The four-page memo accuses senior DOJ officials of improperly using information from the so-called Steele dossier - which originated as an opposition research document during the 2016 presidential race - to obtain surveillance warrants on Page. A controversial Republican intelligence memo released last week highlighted that Page had been targeted.
Page said Friday the memo revealed "misdeeds against the Trump Movement". He told ABC News he was reminded of a letter he sent to then-FBI Director James Comey in September 2016, after news reports began raising questions about his travels to Russian Federation. "I would never have seen him in the center of concern like this, or playing a role or being seen as an intermediary between the Russian government and a political candidate", the editor said.
Democrats have called the memo misleading, and the House Intelligence Committee voted unanimously on Monday to release a document drafted by Democrats to rebut the GOP memo.
At the heart of the debate is the question of who, exactly, is Carter Page.
