Carter Page Admits to Advising the Kremlin and Trump, but Doesn't Understand the FBI's Suspicion 
Aaron Rupar, ThinkProgress 
Rupar writes: "During an interview on Good Morning America on Tuesday, Carter Page admitted that he served as an adviser to the Kremlin before joining Donald Trump's campaign for president. But he doesn't think the FBI had good reason to view that as suspicious."

SEE COMMENTS: 
What this story omits is that from about 2013 to 2106 Page worked for the FBI as an informant and a witness in prosecutions of several Russians. The FBI knows him quite well and has since 2013. That is why he is surprised that the FBi wanted a surveillance warrant against him. 

Here is the press release from the DOJ on the case in which Page was undercover for the FBI, recording key conversations used in the prosecution. Page is not named -- after all, he is a secret undercover asset -- but the references are certainly to him.

In the FISA warrant, Page was a patsy. The FBi needed a FISA warrant to spy on Trump's campaign team, This requires someone who has connections with foreigners and is involved in a crime. Page fits that bill -- as the FBI undercover agent. The warrant allows the FBI to follow Page's contacts where ever they lead -- that is, to everyone in the Trump campaign and transition team. 

This article is simply poorly researched. It is more of the one-sided propaganda that we expect to see from democratic publications. I think it is important to consider all sources. The source I've cited is an official press release from the DOJ, southern district of NY. It ends:

" U.S. Attorney [Preet] Bharara praised the investigative work of the FBI’s Counterintellig ence Division."

This refers to Stzrok and his informant Carter Page.


Of further interest to this subject is the letter Carter Page wrote to Mark Warner to correct his false statements about Page following Page's senate testimony. He makes clear in this letter that he was the confidential informant in the Preet Bharra case and that the FBI exposed his identity and thus jeopardized his life. Here's the relevant heading:


Felony #1: Illegal leaking of my identity as “Male-1” in U.S.A. v. Evgeny Buryakov, Igor
Sporyshev, and Victor Podobnyy – On April 3, 2017, reporters at ABC News3 and BuzzFeed
News4 requested to meet in order to inform me that U.S. government operatives had unlawfully disclosed my identity as Male-1 in this 2015 case.

I'm really tired of partisan bullshit in this matter. Let's see the original documents and the full testimony.
