New details have emerged regarding the investigation into Russia's involvement in the 2016 presidential election.
After the Mueller investigation, President Trump gave permission for the declassification of important Russian registers with regard to the supervision of the Trump campaign.
But former Trump campaign assistance and former foreign policy adviser, Carter Page, have come forward to claim that he had more contact with the alleged FBI informant Stefan Halper than previously reported during an important period in the Russian probe.
Apart from that, the documents led congress representatives to focus their attention on a text by former FBI agent Peter Strzok to FBI lawyer Lisa Page, in which he questions & # 39; who playing games & # 39; and & # 39; who covering & # 39 ;, according to Fox.
Former Trump assistant Carter Page (left), who was a focus of the Russian interference investigation for his visits and contacts in Russia, has come forward to claim that he had more contact with the alleged FBI informant Stefan Halper (right) than previously reported
Page claims that he met Halper in July 2016 after receiving an overseas seminar invitation and they stayed in touch for more than a year until September 2017 after the Special Council Robert Mueller was appointed as a research college between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Page was a focus of the 2017 Special Counsel investigation into Russian involvement in the elections for his visits to Moscow in 2016 and his contacts with Russia.
Halper is an American academic and retired professor who speculates on a meeting with the advisers to the president in 2016 and has become an informant for the Russian probe.
Halper worked in the UK at Cambridge University, where he gathered senior intelligence officials for seminars when he met Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, another Trump assistant, both suspected of dealing with Russia.
Page claims that Halper was a friend of his during the Russian probe.
& # 39; In that period, amidst frequent terror threats (Halper), one of the few people who would talk to me was. He seemed to understand my predicament and the ceaseless personal security risks that stemmed from the false reports from the consultants of the Democratic National Committee, Page said to Fox.
He claims that he visited the Halper farm in Northern Virginia several times, starting in August 2016.
He said the visits began three weeks after Peter Strzok had officially opened the FBI counterintelligence inquiry into possible Russian election interference at the end of July 2016.
Subsequently, the FBI and DOJ received a watch warrant on October 21, 2016 to check the page.
When asked if the page made it clear that he was not working for Russia, he said: & I am sure that Russia has come forward. We spoke about international relations. I need to have. … I cannot imagine that everything I said could lead to a FISA. & # 39;
FISA is the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that makes it possible to monitor persons with foreign intelligence information suspected of espionage or terrorism.
The page was displayed in the survey for more than a year, but was not burdened with any error. He has sued the DNC for libel over allegations that he has cooperated with Russia.
Congress investigators are focusing their attention on a text message from former FBI agent Peter Strzok to FBI lawyer Lisa Page, questioning & # 39; who & # 39; s playing games & # 39; and & # 39; who & # 39; s covering & # 39;
Text messages between former FBI agent Peter Strzok, who once led the Russian investigation, and FBI lawyer Lisa Page have been re-examined, this time because the edited names have finally been revealed
This text that Strzok sent to Page on October 13, 2016 has been re-examined because it asks & # 39; who is playing games / is afraid to cover & # 39;
Among the released documents from Russia, a previously revealed text conversation between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page has come into view now that the edited names have been revealed by Fox.
Peter Strzok led the FBI investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 elections, but was removed when Robert Mueller discovered his criticism of Trump in personal text messages between Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page who had an extra-marital affair.
The text sent on October 13, 2016 was sent for a tense period before the FBI and DOJ issued a warrant for Page.
The text is about a senior FBI lawyer and an FBI agent & # 39; Gaeta & # 39; – who, according to the market, is an important trader for the file and the author former British spy Christopher Steele.
In it Strzok wrote to Page: & # 39; We received the report on September 19. It seems that (Gaeta) got it in early August. Looking at (Clinesmith) lync (internal messaging service), I answer that it is not clear whether he knows or / when he told them. But (Steve) and (Kate) have talked to (Spencer), they are both good and will remember. It's not about rubbing their noses. I don't care if they don't know. I just want to know who is playing games / are afraid of coverage. getting it in full will never be provable. & # 39;
Based on the closed declaration by Congressional in 2019, Gaeta is supposed to be an FBI agent who met Steele in the summer of 2016 and obtained the first memos at the beginning of July.
Clinesmith is probably FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith. It is not clear whether Steve and Kate refer to employees of the FBI or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The identity of Spencer is unknown and is of great importance for congress researchers who wonder if he was operating outside the FBI and DOJ.
