Russian spies tried to recruit Trump campaign aide Carter Page in 2013

  • Trump campaign adviser met with Russian intel operativeMore

Carter Page: Former foreign policy advisor to Trump campaign who advocated warmer relations with Russia and criticized USA sanctions; has business ties to Russia through his consulting firm, which focuses on oil and gas in Russia and former Soviet republics; invested in Gazprom, a large Russian natural-gas company.

He reportedly met with Victor Podobnyy, a Russian intelligence official whom the US government later charged with acting as an unregistered agent for a foreign government.

"Similar to my experience in the Navy such as on USS Alabama, the service I've provided to this country in areas that are classified such as any federal investigation I may have supported is not something that is appropriate to talk about", Page said over email.

The court filing said Page was interviewed in June 2013 by Federal Bureau of Investigation counterintelligence agents.

"The Buryakov case resurfaced in headlines last week when President Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner revealed he had met with the head of the same bank".

The release noted Buryakov pleaded guilty last month to conspiring to work as a Russian spy without telling United States officials.

Sindhu, however, had a two points lead, 11-9, going into the break, and the match was set to be a thriller. She gained an 8-6 lead with the help of six consecutive points and the momentum swung in favour of her.

A USA intelligence official told BuzzFeed that investigators will interview Page at some point, but that he is a low priority for the investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. He got hooked on Gazprom thinking that if they have a project, he could rise up. This is intelligence method to cheat, how else to work with foreigners? "You promise him a favor for a favor".

Page, who was an energy consultant working in NYC at the time, is referred to in the filing as Male-1, which states that Podobnyy tried to recruit him. "While Page's interactions with Podobnyy are a clear example of contact with a Russian spy, Page said in a statement that he believed Podobnyy was" a junior attaché at the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations".

Two of the three Russians charged in the 2015 case were operating under diplomatic cover and evaded prosecution. White House press secretary Sean Spicer said last month that the campaign had sent Page cease and desist letters past year, demanding he stop associating himself with it.

Page told ABC News he cooperated in the case, and felt the Feds "unmasked" him by describing him in January 2015 in a manner that would be known to energy insiders. The dossier claimed that Russian officials had been working for years to cultivate Donald Trump as a presidential candidate, compiling damaging information to serve as blackmail while also offering lucrative financial deals in exchange for Trump lessening the economic sanctions crippling Russia and its energy industry. I know I would remember if I ever learned a spy was recorded saying "You get the documents from him and tell him to go fuck himself", about me.

A Republican congressman who's emerged as Russia's top defender on Capitol Hill will meet with President Donald Trump at the White House Tuesday.

Page told the Federal Bureau of Investigation that he gave Podobnyy his business card and shared emails passing along his opinions and general documents about the energy business, according to the complaint.
