WATCH: Ex-Trump adviser Carter Page tries to sidestep Russia ties in bizarre interview on British TV

Published

on

Carter Page, the former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign and an oil industry consultant spoke with Channel 4 News about the leaks coming out of the Trump White House prompting questions about the administration’s ties to Russia.

Page alleged in the interview that acting attorney general Sally Yates, who was fired by President Donald Trump earlier this month, “was certainly part of some of the attacks against General Flynn,” the national security advisor who was asked to resign last week.

Interviewer Jon Snow asked whether Page “regrets the passing of General Flynn.” Page responded by describing Flynn as an “individual of great integrity,” to which Snow pointed out that Flynn lied to the vice president. “If you’re working 18-hour days—” Page started before Snow cut in again, “He lied to the vice president.”

Snow later grilled Page over his work with the Trump campaign last year and his alleged ties to Russia. “Let’s get it on the record,” he said before asking whether Page had ever met with various Russian officials. “Totally false,” Page replied.

“You were a foreign policy adviser to Mr. Trump and one presumes it was your life in Moscow that recommended you for that job,” Snow said. “That’s totally false,” Page replied, noting he was one member of a foreign policy team.

Snow explained Trump has called on Page by name, “So he knows of your existence,” adding later, “You must have been fairly key for one like Donald Trump who has the attention span of two and a half minutes to have remembered your name.”

If Trump and Pence are both removed from office over their involvement in the plot, the next in line for the presidency is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

"I'm fine with Pelosi serving as interim president until we hold an election," tweeted activist Bree Newsom. "Both Trump and Pence are implicated in this conspiracy to extort Ukraine."

Trump claims not to ‘know’ Gordon Sondland very well — but the evidence suggests otherwise

Published

on

President Donald Trump attempted to distance himself Wednesday from his hand-selected European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondland. At the same time, Trump claimed that Sondland’s stunning testimony, which alleged that the president had ordered a “quid pro quo” with Ukraine, in fact, vindicated him.

“Was there a ‘quid pro quo’?” Sondland said in his testimony to the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday. "The answer is ‘yes.’”

Sondland further claimed that “everyone was in the loop” and all actions were “directed” by the president.

It was a day of blockbuster day of testimony from E.U. Ambassador Gordon Sondland, in which Sondland — who once gave Donald Trump a million dollars for his inauguration — decided to save his own hide by ratting out not just Trump and his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, but seemingly half the senior staff of the White House.
