In an interview Tuesday morning with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, Carter Page repeated his claim that he has never met with or spoke to Donald Trump.
The former foreign policy adviser to Trump's 2016 campaign finds himself at the center of the political battle over the Russia election interference investigation. According to the memo released by House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, four separate warrants were issued to spy on Page, who was suspected of being a Kremlin agent.
"I never spoke with him any time in my life," Page said on Good morning America this morning. Stephanopoulos followed up, asking, "no e-mail, no text, nothing like that?"
Page replied: "never."
"What I've seen thus far is just complete ridiculousness," Page said about the claims that he was involved with the Russians. "See, this is sort of spin because I was teaching a course down Broadway here at NYU and I told them a couple of things about what I was talking about in my course, and I gave them a couple of my notes, from the ... or documents I gave my students," Page said. "It sounds — giving documents, to a quote-unquote 'spy' — it sounds a lot worse than reality, but that's reality."
