Adam Schiff Caught in HUGE LIE About Carter Page’s March 2016 Interview With FBI Officials

Leaker, liar and ranking member of the House Intel Committee, Adam Schiff (D-CA) has some explaining to do.

Carter Page says his interview with the FBI in March of 2016, before the Russia dossier was compiled, had nothing to do with Russian collusion or the Trump campaign, rather he was questioned about events that transpired in 2013 in a case where he was a witness in support of the FBI, reports Paul Sperry.

This statement by Page directly contradicts Adam Schiff’s 10-page memo wherein he claims the former Trump campaign advisor was grilled by the FBI in March of 2016 about his ties to Russia.

Obama’s FBI/DOJ obtained 4 FISA warrants on former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page. One FISA warrant and three subsequent renewals on Page allowed Obama’s thugs to spy on Trump’s campaign.

In an effort to justify using a FOREIGN intelligence spy warrant on an American citizen [Carter Page], leaker and liar Adam Schiff claimed the former Trump campaign advisor was long on the FBI radar for his shadowy ties to Russia. In fact, Schiff said in his 10-page junk memo that Carter Page was grilled by the FBI in March of 2016, before the Russia dossier was compiled, about his Russian contacts.

“The FBI interviewed Page multiple times about his Russian intelligence contacts, including in March 2016. The FBI’s concern about and knowledge of Page’s activities therefore long predate the FBI’s receipt of Steele’s information,” Adam Schiff and House Dems argued in the 10-page junk memo they released in response to Nunes’ devastating FISA abuse memo.

“In order to understand the context in which the FBI sought a FISA warrant for Carter Page, it is necessary to understand … what the FBI knew about Page prior to making application to the court — including Page’s previous interaction with Russian intelligence operatives,” Adam Schiff said.

This is a complete lie according to an interview investigative reporter, Paul Sperry conducted with Carter Page.

Paul Sperry reported:

In an interview with RealClearInvestigations, Page insists that the [March 2016] interview in question – held at then-U.S. attorney Preet Bharara’s office in New York — had “absolutely nothing” to do with the Trump campaign or Russian collusion. Instead of being grilled about shadowy ties, he says he answered questions “related to events in 2013, in a case where I had served as a witness in support of the FBI.”

In 2013, a Russian national working as an unregistered foreign agent at a Russian bank in Manhattan sought information from Page, a longtime energy consultant, related to U.S. efforts to develop alternative energy resources, according to court papers filed by the FBI. Although Page thought the man was a legitimate banker after meeting him at an energy symposium in New York City, he was a Russian agent under federal investigation. He was later caught on surveillance dismissing Page as an “idiot.”

The FBI informed Page in 2013 that the Russians might be trying to recruit him.

A U.S. Naval Academy alumnus, Page cooperated as a witness in that case, which was coordinated with the bureau’s Counterespionage Section Chief Peter Strzok in Washington, and he helped the government convict the Russian spy. Evgeny Buryakov pleaded guilty to espionage-related charges on March 11, 2016. FBI agents, as well as federal prosecutors, huddled with Page around that time to tie up loose ends, he said. “It had absolutely nothing to do with the election interference story, which surfaced months later,” Page said.

Page’s March 2016 interview with the FBI was conducted several days BEFORE Trump announced he chose Page as an advisor, further poking holes in Schiff’s claims.

Schiff claims Carter Page was on the FBI’s radar due to his prior run-in with Russians, even though they never successfully recruited Page.

In the end, the Russians were unable to recruit Page and never received any state secrets from him. Monaghan did not recommend espionage or any other charges against Page, who by all accounts acted as a reliable and trusted witness in the case. Far from being a Russian spy, Page was characterized to the court as someone who helped the FBI catch Russian spies.

The government turned on Carter Page [perhaps it’s an act] simply because he chose to work with Trump.

All of a sudden Carter Page became a national security threat–enough of a threat that the FBI used a foreign court to spy on him as if he was a double agent.

Carter Page’s revelation that his March 2016 FBI interview had nothing to do with Russians or the Trump campaign is another blow to the Russian collusion hoax.

Page’s role in all of this is highly suspicious as well. Was he a plant?
