What You Need to Know About Carter Page




The Nunes memo, to be released as early as today, is a political hit job authored by the White House and its closest ally in congress, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. The memo purportedly claims that the FBI illegally investigated Trump aid Carter Page. A cursory Google search on Carter Page quickly reveals his deep, long, and complicated ties with Russian oligarchs, “consultants,” and political operatives — you know, what we used to in a more innocent time call “spies.” Carter Page was actively and successfully recruited by Russian spies long before he served on the Trump campaign. Investigating him and all other attacks on American sovereignty is the FBI’s bread and butter, not a left-wing conspiracy.

This Nunes memo, Trump hopes, is the fire alarm that will create so much chaos that no one will mind as he continues to roll out his slow-motion Saturday Night Massacre. But it won’t work. The American people see right through it.
