Trump Suggests FBI Kept Carter Page's Russia Ties Secret to 'Spy' on His Campaign

Source: Mediate




by Caleb Ecarma | Aug 9th, 2018, 4:35 pm

President Donald Trump suggested that the FBI may have tried to use Carter Page as “an excuse to SPY” on the Trump campaign, as they did not inform the then-candidate about Page’s ties to Russia.

“’Why didn’t the FBI tell President Trump that they had concerns about Carter Page? Is there a double standard here?'” Trump tweeted on Thursday, quoting comments made by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham on Fox News.




Just days before the election in 2016, the FBI filed a surveillance application on Page that said, “The FBI believes that Page has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian government.” Page responded to the allegations by denying his involvement with the Kremlin.

“I’ve never been an agent of a foreign power by any stretch of the imagination,” the former Trump campaign adviser said.

2. Given that reporters were reporting that Page was shady from the minute his name appeared

on the list of foreign policy advisors, it was a very, very poor job at keeping a secret.

7. Trump always makes whatever it is about him

Never mind that the FBI had Carter Page on their radar for 3+ years prior to the campaign.

The FBI didn’t tell Trump about Page being a suspected Russian asset because they didn’t trust Trump with the information.

He pretends they were just picking on poor little Comrade Donnie.

10. Carter Page informed members of Trump campaign staff about his Russian meetings

Page's trips to Russia and meetings with officials there were no secret to Trump and his campaign since Page emailed several of them about his activities, including Hope Hicks. But Trump will try to pin all of the Russian collusion on everyone else in his orbit while pleading innocence and being out of the loop.

... why would the FBI link Page, Russia, and Trump?

Carter Page has been on the FBI watch list since 2012 or 2013.

14. Is shitler blubbering again?

EVERYONE told you not to put that commie mole Flynn in. We see how much heed you paid to that advice.

You were able to get daily classified briefings from our intel people once you were the repug nominee, you could have paid attention to the parts that said your many many russkie buddies were no good. Shitler.

17. They told him about Flynn's problem...

and he hired him anyway. Trump refused to vet his people but somehow its everyone else's fault. Sen. Feinstein was already a part of the govt. and had a driver who presumably was a US citizen that began spying. The FBI had agents that spied for years. Once told he was gone.

18. Melania. Melania? Name sounds suspicious. Foreign. Better watch your back, prez.

Never know who's watching you. Can't be sure of anyone. There are spies everywhere. Ivanka? Maybe they got to her too. Why doesn't the FBI tell you. No, wait. The FBI is in on it too.

21. Melania,

reminds me that during the Cold War, the Russians used beautiful girls to try to get something on you that they could use to turn you. I was no dope, that is why I only dated girls from East Germany.
