Trump Campaign Adviser Gained 'Incredible Insights' During Moscow Trip

Schiff said it's impossible to say whether Russian interference in the election almost a year ago is the reason Republican Donald Trump won the presidency over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Carter Page, a foreign policy adviser to President Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, refused last week to give a congressional committee documents related to the Russian Federation investigation because he said they might not all "match up" with information from earlier wiretaps that caught his conversations.

Sessions appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee during the former Alabama senator's confirmation hearing for attorney general. The former Trump foreign policy aide met with the Senate Intelligence Committee last week as well, and sat for some 10 hours of interviews with the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts with Russian Federation in multiple interviews this spring.

The Senate Intelligence Committee is conducting its own investigation into Russian interference. He said the Russians will be "more clever" in how they hide their efforts to influence future elections.

Page's testimony also revealed that more campaign staff members were aware of his July 2016 trip to Russian Federation than had previously been disclosed, including Jeff Sessions, who is now the attorney general.

Congress has been investigating possible Trump campaign collusion with the Kremlin for almost 10 months, but a top Senate Democrat says she has still not seen evidence to support the allegation.

In a statement Monday, Schiff said that Page had failed to produce the email to the committee before his interview, despite receiving a subpoena for documents. But the details about interactions between his foreign policy advisers and Russians raise new questions about the Trump campaign's dealings with Moscow. The campaign was certainly aware of his connections to Russia because Papadopoulos suggested using them to set up a meeting between Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin at a March 2016 meeting of the foreign policy team with Trump present.

A former British intelligent agent, working on behalf of Democrats, alleged in a dossier compiled before the election and published in January that Page had met with both men.

Page addressed some of the questions about those trips in more than seven hours of testimony last week to the House committee.

MR. SCHIFF: Dr. Page, I'm referring to Bates stamp [REDACTED] in which you relate that you had received insights and outreach from Russian legislators and senior members of the Presidential administration. "Near the end of the dinner, Page approached Sessions to say hello and thanked the then-senator for the dinner, and Page also mentioned he was headed to Russian Federation". He said he discussed "foreign policy things" with the ambassador and that he had some "general" discussions of U.S. -Russia relations with she and other Hungarian officials - though he could recall few specifics.

He has for months said the trip was made as a private citizen, not as part of his role with the Trump campaign.
