Former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page, acknowledged that the FBI questioned him as part of the agency’s probe into the president’s ties to Russia.
Page called the discussions, which totaled about 10 hours in March, “extensive” and claimed accusations that he colluded with Russia were Democratic lies. An anonymous source told The Washington Post of the meetings in which Page denied any wrongdoing.
The Post reported earlier in 2017 that the FBI sought to monitor Page’s communications as part of an investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia in 2016.
Reports have surfaced of Trump associates coming under investigation, but Monday’s story in the Post is the first to reveal questioning on the level that Page experienced.
