For months, Democrats and their partisans in the media have singled out Trump associates as traitors and collaborators with the Russians.
Congressional Democrats pounded their chests about getting them to testify and proving once-and-for-all they were in league with a foreign power during the 2016 election.
So why did the Democrats just make one surprising announcement about witness testimony?
Carter Page was a one-time Trump advisor and energy company executive.
He traveled to Moscow in the summer of 2016 to deliver a speech and his trip has been cited as one of the reasons the FBI initiated a counter intelligence investigation into the Trump campaign and their contacts with the Russians.
The FBI even obtained a FISA warrant to spy on his communications – proving that the Obama administration did place Trump associates under surveillance during the 2016 election.
Page was supposed to be the witness who would finally unravel the spool of collusion and treason in the Trump campaign.
The Washington Post reports:
“Page sent a letter to the House Intelligence Committee on Monday in which he claimed that the committee staff told him that he “might not be immediately afforded the opportunity to address the false or misleading testimony by James Comey, John Brennan, et al. as per our previously scheduled appointment for next week.” Page made clear that he’s eager to testify.
Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” morning show reported on the letter and read part of it on the air early Wednesday morning.”
Did the Democrats cancel his testimony because the Russia investigation is now at the point where everyone must put their cards on the table and they will be exposed as bluffing?
