Has he flipped? Carter Page answered questions about Trump-Russia for ten hours without a lawyer
Former Donald Trump campaign adviser Carter Page has spent ten hours discussing the Trump-Russia scandal and investigation with federal authorities, raising questions as to what or whom he may have given up. Moreover, Page met with authorities without an attorney present – raising a whole other set of questions.
Page has met with the authorities five different times for a total of ten hours, according to a new Washington Post report (link). Now that the meetings have leaked, Page is confirming that they happened. He’s also asserting that he spent the meetings pleading his innocence while framing the entire Trump-Russia scandal as a hoax perpetrated by Hillary Clinton and President Obama. But no one – not even Carter Page – is stupid enough to submit to hours upon hours of questioning from federal investigators about a traitorous scandal without having an attorney president.
So what’s really going on here? All along, Page has gone on television and admitted to various self incriminating things, acting as if he knows that he can’t face any consequences for anything he says or does. Either he’s delusional beyond belief, or he’s already flipped on Trump and he knows he’s off the hook for everything.
Again, this doesn’t mean Carter Page has flipped. It simply means that either he’s flipped, or he’s one of the very dumbest people on the planet. Even he may not be as mind numbingly dumb as he’s acting.
