Carter Page, former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, said he might have been included in emails with George Papadopoulos, another campaign foreign policy adviser, regarding Russia.
MSNBC host Chris Hayes pressed Page Monday night if Page remembered Papadopoulos telling people Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted to set up a meeting and that he was approached about Hillary Clinton’s emails.
“I know nothing about e-mails,” Page said. “Definitely nothing. I heard nothing about that.”
“A direct question on this particular thing,” Hayes said. “Do you remember Papadopoulos emailing about this stuff?
“There were tons of emails happening on a lot of different things,” Page responded. “I could have been on them. I might have been.”
Page said there were thousands of emails shared during the campaign, but he had not heard anything regarding hacking Clinton’s emails.
Page also said he may have been part of emails chains concerning Russia.
“It may have come up time and time again, there is nothing major,” Page said.
Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to misleading FBI agents concerning his contacts with Russians during a January interview.
Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, was indicted by a federal grand jury on Monday on 12 charges, along with his associate Rick Gates, as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to determine if the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.
Manafort pleaded not guilty to all 12 counts on Monday at a federal courthouse hearing. He is under house arrest and his passport has been confiscated.
