Carter Page, implicated in Trump Russia scandal, does bizarre TV interview

This probably was not such a great idea:

[Carter] Page alleged in the interview {with the UK’s Channel 4 News] that acting attorney general Sally Yates, who was fired by President Donald Trump earlier this month, “was certainly part of some of the attacks against General Flynn,” the national security advisor who was asked to resign last week.

Interviewer Jon Snow [not the guy from “Game of Thrones”] asked whether Page “regrets the passing of General Flynn.” Page responded by describing Flynn as an “individual of great integrity,” to which Snow pointed out that Flynn lied to the vice president. “If you’re working 18-hour days—” Page started before Snow cut in again, “He lied to the vice president.”

Snow later grilled Page over his work with the Trump campaign last year and his alleged ties to Russia. “Let’s get it on the record,” he said before asking whether Page had ever met with various Russian officials. “Totally false,” Page replied.

“You were a foreign policy adviser to Mr. Trump and one presumes it was your life in Moscow that recommended you for that job,” Snow said. “That’s totally false,” Page replied, noting he was one member of a foreign policy team.

Snow explained Trump has called on Page by name, “So he knows of your existence,” adding later, “You must have been fairly key for one like Donald Trump who has the attention span of two and a half minutes to have remembered your name.”

The full interview can be seen on Channel 4’s web site.

      It’s always possible that he’ll have that one last cup of teat with just the right amount of honey and polonium…
