Carter Page, one of three Trump campaign members FBI informant Stefan Halper contacted during the 2016 presidential campaign, says James Comey’s FBI left his life in shambles.
The oil industry consultant told Paul Sperry of the New York Post that in the wake of the intense media coverage he received towards the end of 2016, his girlfriend broke up with him during a heated discussion after “freaking out,” over Page being the subject of “fake news.”
“Talking with her later in the evening after dinner, she told me that she didn’t want me staying there anymore, and that our relationship was over,” Page reveals.
Following the break-up, Page says he “booked a last-minute hotel reservation as part of this early chapter of the redefinition of my life.”
“Page believes the FBI’s mole, professor Stefan Halper, was secretly spying on him as part of a “politically motivated” investigation of Team Trump, using fake sympathy to gain his trust — all while fishing for dirt on Page’s ties to Russia, where he’d worked as an energy consultant,” Sperry reports.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if it turned out to be a trap,” Page told the veteran reporter.
