 In Conflicts Of Interest, Russia   Last Updated: August 2, 2017

The FBI obtained authorization to monitor Carter Page, a former Trump campaign advisor and investment banker in Moscow:

The FBI and the Justice Department obtained the warrant targeting Carter Page’s communications after convincing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court judge that there was probable cause to believe Page was acting as an agent of a foreign power, in this case Russia, according to the officials.

The FBI is currently investigating Russia’s involvement in the 2016 Presidential campaign as a whole.

When George Stephanopoulos asked Carter Page if he ever discussed the possibility of Trump easing sanctions on Russia during an interivew on Good Morning America on April 13 2017.  Page Responded by saying “absolutely not.  I never offered that, nothing along those lines.”  He then added, “I don’t recall every single word that I ever said…something may have come up in a conversation, I have no recollection and there is nothing specifically that I would have done that would have given people that impression.”
