Carter Page responds to Nunberg: Some people have been 'intoxicated for a year and a half'

Carter Page on Monday responded to fellow former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg's claim that Page colluded with the Kremlin, implying that Nunberg had a drinking problem.

Page's comments on "Hannity" came after Nunberg gave a string of wild, shocking media interviews earlier in the day, including one in which a CNN host said she smelled alcohol on him.

"There's been a lot of people that have been quite intoxicated for over a year and a half now, so nothing new here," Page told Sean Hannity on the Fox News.

Sarah Kendzior - Good questions about Gates & Manafort being out and about

from the middle of the article......... “The Mafia White House”: My no-holds-barred interview on The Rick Smith Show

SK: One of those is the treatment of Manafort and Gates, who have been given the most lax treatment for two people who’ve committed conspiracy against the United States. We know that Gates is complying, that he’s helping with the investigation, we’re guessing in good faith that he gave up a lot of information in order to get those charges dropped. But, you know, they’re letting him travel around for spring break, and they just let Manafort out to attend a funeral. Back in December, they let Manafort off of house arrest entirely, including with no GPS tracking. This is a guy who has three passports and is hooked up with like every mobster in the world—and they just let him out, like he’s not going to immediately do something awful, and of course he did, and then they had to put him back on house arrest.

And I look at all this like, ‘This is just extreme naivete or incompetence,’ and either one of those makes me very uncomfortable. Maybe there’s some long game that I’m just not seeing, but you don’t let a guy like Manafort out. Not just because he deserves to be punished, but because he’s going to hurt people. He’s full of compromising information. He’s full of murderous intent. This is a guy with blood on his hands. So why are they being so cavalier? Why would he give these guys rights? And I have to say this—I live in St Louis, where people go to jail over a parking ticket and stay there for months because they can’t pay it. That part of me is very angry about it as well.

RS: Well I mean this is about power and money, at the end of it, and there’s also a part of me that goes, to both Manafort and Gates: “Don’t walk near any open windows.”

SK: Oh absolutely! That’s one of the things that’s really weird, is that they’re both assassination targets. They’re both flight risks. I could easily see especially Manafort just hitting the road or honestly probably getting into a boat and cruising on out to uncharted waters. But both of them are potential assassination targets, especially Gates, because he’s said to be cooperating. And if I were, not just Russia—everyone’s like ‘Russia’s going to go and kill him’—it could be Trump’s goon squad, it could be people in the United States who want this shut down.

Gates is in a very vulnerable position. And they go and announce the exact week of when he’s going to be out and about and the city that he’s going to—he’s going to Boston—and I’m like ‘Why? Why would you tell anyone that?’ It’s one thing if he had some, I don’t know, special thing he had to do and for whatever godforsaken reason they’re going to allow him to do it, but why do you announce that to the world? You’re basically almost putting a hit on him. I can’t stand this guy, but I don’t want him to die, in part because he’s one of the most useful witnesses we have. Can you imagine if he gets killed? The kind of conspiracy theories that are going to sprout up in our environment, what Trump, what all his people would do — it would just be a disaster. So I hope they’ve got their eye on the ball here, because if they don’t, we’re in a lot of trouble.
