  • Carter Page Touted Kremlin Contacts in 2013 Letter

Page, who advised the Trump campaign on foreign policy, became the subject of a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant that the Federal Bureau of Investigation sought due to claims made in the Steele dossier which said a Russian official offered Page billions of dollars to pressure the Trump administration to lift sanctions against Russia.

George Stephanopoulos had Carter Page on Good Morning America on Tuesday, and grilled the former Trump campaign adviser over his past claims about advising the Russian government.

The Nunes memo also indicates that information from a paid opposition researcher - former British spy Christopher Steele - was a source cited in the government's application for a FISA warrant.

Large overbearing wheel arches complete the rugged look, which should do well in setting the Santa Fe apart from the competition. A new Safety Exit Assist will also lock the doors if the vehicle detects a vehicle approaching from the rear.

But he declined to say where the president was leaning and White House officials said they could not predict Trump's ultimate decision.

"I was teaching a course... at NYU, and I told him a couple of things about what I was talking about in my course, and I gave him a couple of notes, uh, documents that I gave my students", he said. 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. Page has denied the assertions. The two exchanged contact information, sent each other documents on energy policy and met several more times to discuss the topic, the documents allege. Podobnyy and one of the Russians had diplomatic immunity and left the U.S. The third Russian was arrested and eventually expelled from the U.S.in April 2017. Page says he had subsequent similar meetings, describing them to TIME as "really plain-vanilla stuff".

High Court judge Luka Kimaru had ordered that the IG and DCI present the besieged lawyer in court at 9 am today. A journalist at the court in Kajiado said Miguna had appeared at Tuesday's hearing.

"I don't think I've ever spoken to him". To the best of my knowledge, the president of the United States has never met Carter Page.

"I hope they get it", he said.

The New York Times reporters and The New York Times Company seek to disclose those orders to facilitate the ongoing public debate over the propriety of the surveillance orders and the related investigation being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Meanwhile wages rose at the fastest pace in more than eight years, suggesting employers are competing more fiercely for workers. The U.S. central bank has forecast three rate increases this year after raising borrowing costs three times in 2017.
