Carter Page Met With Russian Government Officials In July 2016

Onetime Trump campaign advisor Carter Page told the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday that he met with Russian government officials during a visit to Moscow in the summer of 2016, the New York Times reported Friday night. Page, who testified for more than five hours before the House committee investigating Russian attempts to interfere with the U.S. presidential election last year, had previously meeting with any Russian government officials during that visit. “I had a very brief hello to a couple of people. That was it,” Page told the Times, elaborating that one of the people in question was a “senior person” in the Russian government.
