Former Trump campaign associate Carter Page spoke with Sean Hannity Thursday night on the escalating scandal surrounding potential “spying” during the 2016 election; saying he “wants the truth out there” about the now-debunked Steele Dossier.
“They used you to backdoor their way into all things that were Donald Trump’s campaign. Your reaction?” asked Hannity.
“Absolutely right, as you’ve been saying for the last couple of years… They accused me of being responsible for WikiLeaks in conjunction with Paul Manafort who I’ve never met or spoken with in my entire life,” said Page.
“I want the truth out there, the quicker we can get to the bottom of this the better,” he added.

BOMBSHELL: Clinton-Financed Russia Dossier USED TO SPY on Trump Campaign
The unverified dossier alleging connections between President Trump’s campaign and the Russians was used as evidence by the FBI to gain approval from a secret court to monitor members of Trump’s team, this reporter has learned.
A large portion of the evidence presented in the salacious 35-page dossier put together by former British spy Christopher Steele, has either been proven wrong or remains unsubstantiated. However, the FBI gained approval nevertheless to surveil members of Trump’s campaign and “it’s outrageous and clearly should be thoroughly investigated,” said a senior law enforcement source, with knowledge of the process.
Multiple sources told this reporter that the dossier was used along with other evidence to obtain the warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, known as FISC. The sources also stressed that there will be more information in the coming week regarding systemic “FISA abuse.”
“(The dossier) certainly played a role in obtaining the warrant,” added another senior U.S. official, with knowledge of the dossier. “Congress needs to look at the FBI officials who were handling this case and see what, if anything, was verified in the dossier. I think an important question is whether the FBI payed anything to the source for the dossier.”
