In the drama that is the Trump administration, the list of players, movers, and shakers is long, and slowly Special Counsel Robert Mueller is working through them one by one. In a damning video, Mueller may have a piece of crucial evidence that could put away one Trump lackey.
Tuesday morning, Carter Page appeared on ABC and claimed he was innocent and never had any meetings or communications with Trump. He said:
‘I never spoke with him since. I never spoke with him any time in my life.’

That’s a pretty large claim coming from someone who was a foreign policy adviser for the Trump campaign. Furthermore, he’s been accused of serving both the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
However, video evidence was tweeted by anti-Trump Democratic Coalition founder Scott Dworkin, and it definitely tells a different story.
‘Carter Page lied to @GStephanopoulos this morning & said he’s never spoken with Trump ever.
Here’s video I found of Carter Page saying he had been in a number of meetings with Trump & that he had learned a tremendous amount from him. #TrumpTreason’
In the video, Page says:
‘I made a commitment not to talk about the internal work that I did at the campaign. I’ve certainly been in a number of meetings with him, and I’ve learned a tremendous amount from him.
‘In terms of actual briefings, that’s not something I’d like to talk about.’

Now, here’s the best part of the video. He was making those comments to reporters while in Moscow. You know, Russia.
Page has claimed that the government obtained a warrant illegally to spy on him and his activities. The GOP memo also insinuates the same. CNN reported:
‘The GOP-crafted memo Page referenced alleges that the FBI and the Justice Department cited, in part, a dossier funded by a law firm on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign to obtain a warrant to surveil Page.’
So, which is it? Did you work for the Trump campaign? It’s hard to believe a foreign policy adviser for the Trump campaign would have never had any communications with the guy who was actually running for president. You’re an advisor. Your job is to advise.
Page needs to get a lawyer and a good one at that considering all the ridiculous things he has said. He has consistently proven himself to be a liar and a poor one at that. The best thing for Carter Page is to learn to keep his mouth shut and refer people to a lawyer or spokesperson – the people you pay to lie for you.
