In general, it’s really hard to keep up with the lies told by the Trump administration. This is especially true where Russia is concerned.

Trump knows Putin, he knows him not. Ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has had no contact with Russian officials, he quits before he is fired because he had contact with Russian government officials. Jeff Sessions has had no contact with Russian government officials, he recuses himself from the investigation into the administration for which he works and it’s relationship with Russia, because he has had contact with Russian government officials.

Now, ex-Trump staffer, Carter Page may remember a time he was in Moscow last year and while talking to government officials, “something may have come up in a conversation” about America’s sanctions against Russia.

Page was on Good Morning AmericaThursday. When asked if he met with anyone in the Russian government or associated with Russian intelligence while he was in Moscow, Page claimed he merely said “Hello” to a school board member.

George Stephanopoulos questioned about whether Page has ever talked about the U.S. lifting sanctions against Russia, but Page played dumb and told on himself at the same time:

‘I don’t recall every single word I ever said. Something may have come up in a conversation. I have no recollection, and there’s nothing specifically that I would have done that would have given people that impression. Someone may have brought it up. And if it was, it was not something I was offering or that someone was asking for.’

Page’s interview and self-snitching was just two days after The Washington Post disclosed that the FBI received a court order last year for Page because they suspected he was working with the Russians. Federal authorities had enough evidence that a judge was willing to approve surveillance of Page’s communication.

Page continues to deny that he has done anything wrong, but former Assistant Attorney General for National Security, John Carlin states that getting a judge to agree to FISA surveillance is an extensive process that requires a lot of evidence.  Nevertheless, Page maintains that he has done nothing wrong, but The Post’s story is a major red flag and sign that Page’s connection to Russia are an important part of the FBI’s investigation.
