Ex-Trump adviser tells panel about ’16 Russia trip
WASHINGTON (AP) — A former foreign policy adviser to President Donald Trump’s campaign has told a House committee he had contact with a high-level Russian official while on a trip to Russia last year.
In a transcript released Monday by the House intelligence committee, Carter Page tells the committee he “briefly said hello to” Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich when he traveled to Russia for a speech. Page also tells the panel he had informed some members of the Trump campaign about the trip and he had planned to share information with them about what he had learned.
Page has often been contradictory about whom he met on the trip, but his testimony Thursday was under oath.
