Carter Page Is Happy About All Of Trump's 'Lies' Coming Out In The Open

The “lies” about connections between the president’s associates and Russia are “finally coming out into the open,” according to a former Trump campaign aide whom the FBI accused of being a foreign agent.

The ex-adviser, Carter Page, told Fox News that the bureau made “false allegations” to obtain a court warrant under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to spy on him last summer. Investigators used the warrant to monitor his communications. “I’m very encouraged by all this new information that’s coming out about some of these unethical practices and potentially illegal practices,” Page said. “When you introduce false evidence in a court of law, including the FISA court, that is illegal.”

Eric Bolling, guest host of “The O’Reilly Factor,” asked whether “there was some false evidence about you introduced to the FISA court to obtain that warrant so they could surveil you.” Page replied that “there’s certainly a lot of indications.” He cited a British spy’s “dodgy dossier” that featured various charges against Trump campaign officials. The documents were “completely false; based on a private investigator people associated with the Clinton campaign hired,” according to Page.

“I’m very encouraged that all of the lies that have been a drag on this administration are finally coming out into the open,” he said. “So many people have lied against me from the Clinton campaign and many of their surrogates ... let’s see what actually comes out.”

The FBI is investigating Russia’s alleged attempts to influence last year’s U.S. election, and whether anyone associated with the Trump campaign colluded with those efforts. The House and Senate intelligence committees are holding hearings concerning the scandal, which has already forced some members of the president’s team to resign.

Trump continues to deny charges that he has a cozy relationship with Vladimir Putin, despite his frequent praise of the Russian leader. According to U.S. intelligence agencies, Putin ordered last year’s cyber attacks on computers used by Democratic National Committee officials and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman.
