Carter Page told Russian TV he was in ‘a number of meetings’ with Trump

Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page says in a newly resurfaced video that he attended “a number of meetings” with President Trump.

The video clip tweeted by Scott Dworkin, an MSNBC contributor and founder of the anti-Trump Democratic Coalition, surfaced after Page said during an interview Tuesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that he has never had any communication with Trump.

“I made a commitment not to talk about the internal work that I did at the campaign,” Page says in the 2016 clip when asked whether he had ever met Trump.

“I’ve certainly been in a number of meetings with him and I’ve learned a tremendous amount from him.”

Page made the remarks during a press conference in Moscow in December 2016.


Page said during the ABC News interview on Tuesday that he “never spoke” with Trump “any time in my life.”

He was pressed on whether he had ever communicated with the president, including over email or text.

“Never,” Page replied.

Page is at the center of a GOP memo released last Friday alleging surveillance abuses at the Department of Justice (DOJ).

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.  

Trump claimed in a tweet over the weekend that the memo “totally vindicates” him in the investigation into Russia’s election interference and possible ties between his campaign and Moscow.

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. That document now goes to Trump, who has five days to block its release if he so chooses.
