Carter Page Held High-Level Hungarian Meetings for Trump Campaign
Despite the Trump campaign characterizing him as a low-level staffer, former foreign-policy advisor Carter Page conducted high-level meetings with Hungarian politicians in the country’s parliament in Budapest in 2016, ABC reported Monday. Page, who has been questioned by the FBI and the House Intelligence Committee over his communications with Russian officials, met with the country’s U.S. ambassador and with a close advisor to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. Orbán and Hungary have been described as increasingly close allies of Russian and Russian president Vladimir Putin. Orbán was the first world leader to endorse Donald Trump's presidential campaign. Questioned on the Budapest meetings during a House Intelligence Committee hearing, Page said he could not remember who he met with or what they discussed.
