Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page said accusations against him included in redacted applications for surveillance warrants, released by the Justice Department on Saturday, are “a complete joke.”
Appearing on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday, Page told host Jake Tapper the 412 pages of heavily redacted material, including the application in which the FBI said it suspected page was linked to Russian officials and had been collaborating with the Russian government, were misleading.
“You’re talking about misleading the courts. It’s just so misleading, going through those 400-plus-page documents. You know, where do you even begin?” Page said. “It’s literally a complete joke and it only continues. It’s just really sad.”
President Donald Trump also called the documents misleading in a tweet on Sunday morning.
“Congratulations to @JudicialWatch and @TomFitton on being successful in getting the Carter Page FISA documents. As usual they are ridiculously heavily redacted but confirm with little doubt that the Department of ‘Justice’ and FBI misled the courts. Witch Hunt Rigged, a Scam!” Trump wrote.
