As part of his plea agreement, he relinquished all claims to status in the United States, and agreed to enter ICE custody at the conclusion of his federal prison term.
In a written exchange with The Washington Post, Page confirmed playing a role in the case but declined to discuss details. He was arrested on January 26, 2015, and accused of serving as an agent for SVR, Russia's foreign intelligence service. But this is before we get to Michael Flynn, Jeff Sessions, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, Jared Kushner - all on the list of Trump associates with Russian ties. Page did not say why he'd provided the man the documents, but said that the documents were publicly available and that he believed any interaction with the man would not have broken the law.
According to the court records, the Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed Page as part of the case against three Russian men identified as agents of the Russian overseas intelligence agency, the SVR. One of them, Evgeny Buryakov, was operating undercover as an executive in the NY office of a Russian development bank.
In December, Donald Trump's son-in-law and close adviser met privately with the head of a Russian bank under USA sanctions.
According to Buzzfeed, Page met with and passed off documents to at least one Russian spy at Moscow's United Nations office in 2013.
In a statement to The Daily Caller, Page alleges that he was improperly unmasked in the Federal Bureau of Investigation document. "I looked at him as if he was one of my students", Page said. I know I would remember if I ever learned a spy was recorded saying "You get the documents from him and tell him to go fuck himself", about me.
U.S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence ranking member Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) speaks with reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., March 30, 2017. According to the court documents, Podobnyy tried to recruit Carter Page, an energy consultant working in NY at the time, as an intelligence source.
AOL plus Yahoo to equal new 'Oath'
Another quipped: "What'll be the metric for Oath's success as a company?" The new name was first reported by Business Insider . However, other government investigations and third-party litigation related to the hacks will be shared by Verizon and Yahoo.
Why did Kushner meet with a Russian banker whose bank is under US sanctions?
According to the complaint filed in 2015, the FBI interviewed Page as part of an investigation stemming from the indictment of three Russian spies working for the Russian overseas intelligence agency.
"Any information I could give is, again, immaterial and all public information", he said during a break in a NY energy conference. "I also promised him a lot". The Associated Press reported that the former foreign policy adviser split from the campaign before the election and the White House says Trump has no relationship with him.
It remains unclear how connected Page was to the Trump campaign.
The FBI, as well as the Senate and House intelligence committees, are investigating Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and any ties between Moscow and Trump's associates, including Page. He previously was a fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, where he focused on the Caspian Sea region and the economic development in former Soviet states. Page gained national attention in July when he traveled to Moscow to give a speech at a commencement ceremony.
Living in the era of hot takes and rapidly flying rumors, you can easily imagine people reading only that much of it, tweeting out the headline and yet another Trump - Russia narrative is launched.
Page has said repeatedly in recent weeks that he would like to tell his story to congressional investigators looking at Russian government efforts to influence the course of the 2016 election and the leak of information about that effort.
