Carter Page: FBI 'shredded' Constitution by eavesdropping on him

The Pennsylvania Avenue entrance of the J. Edgar Hoover Federal Bureau of Investigation Building is seen in Washington on Nov. 30 2017

The GOP-crafted memo Page referenced alleges that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department cited, in part, a dossier funded by a law firm on behalf of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign to obtain a warrant to surveil Page.

The FBI's surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, which Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee criticize in a memo declassified last week, shows investigators putting a lot of time and effort into a line of inquiry that apparently led nowhere.

"There was a lot of people advising", Page asserted. "We were an informal group".

"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". "Carter Page is a person who's going out and telling everybody that he was part of the campaign; he had no formal role in the campaign".

"I$3 became a liability pretty quick", he said.

The letter, dated August 25, 2013, was sent by Page to an academic press during a dispute over edits to an unpublished manuscript he had submitted for publication, according to an editor who worked with Page. Page has continued to deny the reports. The two exchanged contact information, sent each other documents on energy policy and met several more times to discuss the topic, the documents allege. "For now, his enthusiasm works for me", the recruiter says of Page.




At issue is whether the federal probe into the Trump campaign's Russian Federation ties is infected with political bias, as Republicans say - or whether the GOP is using deceitful tactics to quash the probe, as Democrats insist.

In 2013, Page met with Russian diplomat Victor Podobnyy at an energy conference in New York, Time reported, citing court documents.

Campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told CNN at the time that Page is "certainly not part of the campaign I'm running". And they have been paying attention to him, on and off, ever since.

"I hope they get it", he said.

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".
