President Donald Trump’s former campaign adviser Carter Page spoke out about his situation Tuesday on CNN’s “New Day,” detailing his interrogation by the federal government and expressing relief about the truth finally coming out.
“I’m not concerned about a record because the more the record comes out as we’ve seen over recent weeks and months, the better,” Page told host Chris Cuomo. “Now that we’re starting to learn the truth, it couldn’t get any better for me.”
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) put Page under surveillance while former President Barack Obama was still in office after the government requested a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court.
Page discussed his interrogation at the hands of the government and said he was questioned for over 30 hours.
“All I will say, Chris, is I’ve been interrogated over 30 hours in total by both the executive branch and legislative branch of government,” Page said. “Someone leaked that I talked for ten hours to the FBI last March.”
Page also believes the government thought former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was going to win the election when they authorized surveillance on him and thought the truth would never come out.
“I think it’s a cleanup act a little bit,” he said. “They went down this path thinking that Mrs. Clinton was going to win. And so now they’ve got to find something.”
Page said he is a private person and hopes to return to a quiet life after his legal issues are concluded, but not before making up for the “damage that was done” to democracy.
“I’m a private figure. I seem quite outspoken now. I’m hoping to go into the woods some day after this is all said and done,” Page said. “I’m just trying to get the truth out to make up for the terrible damage that was done for our democracy.”
“All the evidence I’ve seen so far, Chris, indicates that there was much more interference by the U.S. government compared to the Russian government,” he concluded.
