Former Trump campaign adviser responds to Strzok-Page anti-Trump campaign
Donald Trump’s former campaign advisor has responded to the bombshell revelation about the Strzok-Page campaign, to say the FBI is “so corrupt right now.”
Carter Page joined Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Monday to react to the FBI’s “media leak strategy” discussed in text messages between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
The disgraced former FBI agent Strzok and his ex-in-house lover, lawyer Lisa Page, conspired to leak damaging anti-Trump stories to the press whilst Strzok was heading the alleged Russia collusion investigating into the Trump Campaign during Spring 2017.
The plot between the two discredit law enforcement officials was exposed in a text message exchange revealed in DoJ documents.
According to Fox News, in a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) cites Justice Department documents showing exchanges between Strzok and Page in April of 2017.
A day after texts between the two showed Strzok wanted to discuss the “strategy,” The Washington Post reported that a FISA judge was convinced by the FBI and DOJ that there was “probable cause to believe [Carter] Page was acting as an agent of a foreign power, in this case, Russia.”
“Well done, Page,” Strzok had also said to Lisa Page, adding that two negative news articles about her “namesake” — an apparent reference to Carter Page — would come out.
Carter Page was surveilled by the FBI for months after the agency obtained the FISA warrant.
“It’s not about me,” he said on Monday. “They’re just trying to get to the Trump administration and the Trump campaign.”
He said that people in Washington are only focused “on their own spin” in the media “for their own personal gratification.”
“This is just a way of tearing down all the great things that President Trump is doing.”
In his letter, Meadows wrote that the texts “should lead a reasonable person to question whether there was a sincere desire to investigate wrongdoing or to place derogatory information in the media to justify a continued probe.”
“I want to fix this terrible thing that [has] happened to our country,” Page said. “It’s just so corrupt right now.”
