The Wall Street Journal: Ex-Trump adviser Carter Page says Russian spies tried to recruit him

WASHINGTON — Former Trump presidential campaign adviser Carter Page confirmed he was the unnamed American consultant targeted for recruitment by Russian intelligence officers operating under diplomatic cover in a high-profile 2015 New York spy case.

Page said in a statement released Monday that he helped U.S. federal investigators during the case, which led prosecutors to charge three Russians in connection with spying.

Interactions between former Trump associates and Russia are the focus of congressional and federal investigations looking into allegations that Russia interfered with the U.S. election. Russia has denied the allegations. Page’s statement marked the first acknowledgment of an interaction between Russian intelligence operatives and an associate of the Trump presidential campaign.
