Carter Page 'blows away' Democrats' case against him in FBI 'witch hunt'

Via Billy

President Trump on Wednesday criticized the FBI's investigation into ties between Trump campaign associates and Russia, calling the investigation a "witch hunt" after Carter Page, a former Trump adviser, said the FBI and CIA are not telling the truth about his role.

"So now it is reported that the Democrats, who have excoriated Carter Page about Russia, don't want him to testify. He blows away their case against him & now wants to clear his name by showing 'the false or misleading testimony by James Comey, John Brennan... Witch Hunt!" Trump said in two separate tweets, referencing former FBI Director James Comey and former CIA Director John Brennan.

Page served as Trump's foreign policy adviser and was reportedly under investigation by the FBI for his contacts with Russia.

In a letter to the House Intelligence Committee on Monday, Page said there has been an "ongoing barrage of false information" spread about him over the last three months, and said he wants to testify as quickly as possible.
