Page Testimony Offers New Details On July 2016 Trip

JeffSessions

Last Monday, unsealed court records showed former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his interactions with foreign officials close to the Russian government - the campaign's clearest connection so far to Russia's efforts to meddle in the 2016 election.

Page's comments provide the latest confirmed contacts between members of the Trump campaign and Russians during the presidential race.

Court documents state that Sessions and Trump were at the March 31, 2016, meeting at which Papadopoulos made the proposal to arrange a meeting with Putin.

Prior to his Russian Federation trip, Page said he notified several campaign members, including then-press secretary Hope Hicks and then-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Page then traveled back to Russian Federation after Election Day past year.

The two men had a brief interaction at the commencement ceremony, where Dvorkovich also spoke, Page said.

Papadopoulos and Page both served as members of candidate Donald Trump's foreign policy committee.

Here too, Page kept the campaign clued in on his plans and sent an email to the campaign flagging the speech request asking if they had any "thoughts on how you'd prefer me to focus these remarks".

The new details come from Page's closed-door testimony last week with the House Intelligence Committee, which is investigating Russia's interference in last year's election. Some of his meals were also taken care of, according to Page's testimony, though some he paid for himself.

The 30-second video has been viewed thousands of times on social media since it was posted Saturday. Freitas was one of 23 ejections and two arrests Saturday night, according to Miami-Dade police.

The statement follows the first official charges being approved by a federal grand jury in the Russian Federation probe led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, against Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and a business associate, Rick Gates.

During his testimony, Page said he "briefly said hello to" Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich after speaking at Moscow's New Economic School in July 2016.

Of the claim in his email to the campaign that he conducted outreach with Russian legislators, Page said he was referring to a "couple of legislators" he believed were sitting in the audience of his speech because their children were graduating from the university. When reporters began asking around past year about his Moscow trip, campaign officials stressed he had no formal role in the campaign.

Page, in his testimony, called himself "the biggest embarrassment surrounding the campaign" and described the firestorm that arose out of the Russian-related allegations against him as "the darkest of the dark clouds over my head".
