YOU’VE GOT THREE LANES WHAT THE COMMITTEE WILL DO, MY COMMITTEE, YOU’VE GOT MR. DURHAM, LOOKING AT CRIMINAL IT, THE U.S. ATTORNEY IN CONNECTICUT AND THE HOROWITZ INSPECTOR GENERAL REPORT THAT I THINK WILL BE COMING OUT IN WEEKS NOT DAYS NOT MONTHS AND I BELIEVE THE REPORT IS GOING TO BE UGLY REGARDING THE DEPARTMENT JUSTICE HANDLING OF THE RUSSIAN PROBE. I’M GOING TO MAKE WITH THE LT. GENERAL NEXT WEEK AND I WANT TO DECLASSIFY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE AND THE AMERICAN PUBLIC TO HEAR THE STORY. I WANT ALL OF THIS INFORMATION TO COME OUT AND I DON’T WANT PEOPLE TO BELIEVE WHAT I SAID, I WANT THEM TO READ FOR THEMSELVES , HOW BAD IT WAS, HOW THE WARRANT APPLICATION TO THE FISA COURT I THINK WAS QUITE FRANKLY A FRAUD ON THE COURT. MARIA: A FRAUD ON THE COURT. THAT WAS SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE MIX LINDSEY GRAHAM ON THIS PROGRAM LAST WEEK UPDATING US ON THE MULTIPLE INVESTIGATION S INTO THE ALLEGED FISA ABUSE AND POTENTIAL WRONGDOING IN LAUNCHING THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION. MY NEXT GUEST IS A CENTRAL FIGURE FORMER TRUMP CAMPAIGN FOREIGN POLICY ADVISOR CARTER PAGE AND CARTER IT’S WONDERFUL TO HAVE YOU.>> GREAT TO BE WITH YOU MARIA. MARIA: YOU HAVE AN ESTEEMED CAREER I WANT TO START THERE BECAUSE OUR VIEWERS KNOW THAT WE’VE COVERED THIS STORY VERY EFFECTIVELY FROM THE GET GO, POKING HOLES IN THIS WHOLE IDEA OF COLLUSION, POKING HOLES IN THE FISA COURT SITUATION, BUT YOU HAVE WORKED WITH THE GOVERNMENT FOR A LONG TIME, BEFORE THEY ACTUALLY TURNED ON YOU. TELL ME YOUR CAREER AS A GOVERNMENT INFORMANT AFTER YOU WORKED AT THE PENTAGON AND AFTER IN THE NAVY TELL US ABOUT IT.>> WELL I GOT OUT OF THE NAVY IN 98 AND I WAS ON A RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP AT A FOREIGN POLICY THINK TANK AND I WAS ACTUALLY THE FIRST TIME IT’S A CIVILIAN AS YOU MENTIONED I SPENT A LOT OF TIME DOING INTELLIGENCE TASKS IN THE MILITARY, BUT THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME WHEN I ACTUALLY DID STUFF AS A CIVILIAN, AND SO ONE OF THE GUYS I WORKED CLOSELY WITH WAS CHRIS STEVENS WHO WAS THE IRAN DESK OFFICER AT THE STATE DEPARTMENT IN 98-99 AND WE HAD A LONG ONGOING DIALOGUE, AND SO A LOT OF SIMILARITIES BETWEEN WHAT HAPPENED WITH HIM, AND THE LACK OF RESPONSIBILITY BY THESE DEMOCRAT ADMINISTRATIONS. THAT WAS DURING THE CLINTON ADMINISTRATION, BUT THE ALSO OF HIS LIFE WAS REALLY A CONTINUATION OF THAT. MARIA: SO THE BOTTOM LYNN IS YOU’VE WORKED AS A GOVERNMENT INFORMANT FOR WHAT, TWO DECADES?>> YES. MARIA: OKAY, AND SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE, THEY OBVIOUSLY TURNED ON YOU, BECAUSE THEY WIRETAPPED YOU.>> YEAH. MARIA: FAST FORWARD TO 2013 OR SO WHEN YOU ARE AN INFORMANT FOR GOVERNMENT ABOUT A SPY RING IN NEW YORK, INVOLVING THREE RUSSIANS.>> YEAH, WELL LISTEN. IT WAS SOMETHING WHERE THERE WAS A LOT, THEY DID AN INDICTMENT. I SPENT TIME WITH THE FBI IN 2013 GIVING THEM ALL OF THE INFORMATION THEY NEEDED. MARIA: THIS IS UNDER THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.>> IT WAS UNDER THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AND THEN A NUMBER OF TOP OFFICIALS, ATTORNEY GENERAL HOLDER, U.S. ATTORNEY AND JOHN CARLIN IN JANUARY OF 2015 A YEAR BEFORE THE START OF THE WHEN I JOINED THE I WAS A VOLUNTEER ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN, THEY HAD THIS INDICTMENT, AND IT WAS JUST — MARIA: OF THE THREE RUSSIANS.>> YEAH, OF THE THREE RUSSIANS AND SO I WAS ONE OF THE MAIN SOURCES. I’M “MALE 1”. MARIA: THAT’S INTERESTING, BECAUSE WE’RE LOOKING AT A TIMELINE IN 2013 YOU’RE MALE NUMBER ONE AND THEY INDICT THESE PEOPLE AND THE INDICTMENT COMES DOWN IN JANUARY 2015 AND THEY NAME YOU.>> WELL THERE’S THIS BIG THING ABOUT MASKS AND UNMASKING AND I WAS VERY LIGHTLY MASKED AND THERE ARE A LOT OF PROBLEMS IN THAT INDICTMENT AND THEY REALLY KIND OF PUT ME OUT ON A LIMB. MARIA: THAT’S WHAT I MARIA: I’M BACK WITH FORMER TRUMP CAMPAIGN FOREIGN POLICY ADVISOR CARTER PAGE AND YOU WERE TELLING US ABOUT THIS CASE THAT YOU HELPED THE GOVERNMENT WITH. TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED IN 2015 AFTER THE INDICTMENT WAS HANDED DOWN ON THE RUSSIANS.>> WELL REALLY, IN MARCH OF 2016, THEY CALLED ME INTO COME TESTIFY IN THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK. MARIA: ON THAT CASE?>> YEAH, AND LISTEN, THERE WERE SO MANY FALSEHOODS, AND MISREPRESENTATIONS IN THEIR INDICTMENT THE PRIOR-YEAR. I SAID I AM NOT GOING TO LIE IN COURT. SIMILAR TO THE FALSE COURT FILINGS WITH THE DOJ AND THE FBI HAS SUBMITTED IN THIS CASE, AND SO IT WAS A LONG BACK AND FORTH WITH THEM BUT I TOLD THEM, I AM A MAN OF MY WORD AND I’M NOT GOING TO, YOU KNOW, PROVIDE FALSE TESTIMONY LIKE THEY’VE DONALD VERY SIMILAR BETWEEN THE FALSE TESTIMONY WHICH THEY DID AND THAT CASE AGAINST THE RUSSIANS, AND THE FALSE TESTIMONY WHICH THEY DID A FEW MONTHS LATER IN OCTOBER OF 2016 WITH THEIR START OF THE FISA ABUSE. MARIA: YOU NEVER ACTUALLY TESTIFIED IN THE SPY RING CIRCUS IN TERMS OF THAT, BUT THIS ALL GOES TO GOVERNMENT INFORM APTS AND YOU COULD LOOK AT PATRICK BY RNE FROM OVERSTOCK.COM RIGHT?>> WELL BASICALLY GOVERNMENT IS TAKING CONTROL OF PEOPLE’S LIVES I MEAN, I’VE LOST STEPS OF HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND HE LOST A COUPLE HUNDRED MILLION OFF HIS MARKET CAP JUST BASED ON THESE FALSEHOODS. MARIA: YOU MEAN THE STOCK LOST HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS?>> YES.
