Carter Page, who briefly served as a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, is working on a book he is pitching to publishers "at auction," under the working title of "Politics, Lies, and the Wiretap: Inside the Fight to End the 70-Year Cold War."
The Manhattan energy businessman is one of several individuals who figure in to ongoing investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 elections. Like President Trump, Page has called the investigations a "witch hunt," and, after being named by some Democrats at a public hearing of the House Intelligence Committee, expressed his bewilderment that he hasn't been called to testify.
Page has a full prospectus for the book, which he says will be "infinitely more accurate, exciting and insightful" than any book by former FBI Director James Comey, who is also reportedly working on a book.
"Related to recent discussions with publishers, this provisional draft prospectus includes many details which have remained unreported amid the vast wave of false information discharged by the Clinton-Obama-Comey regime since last year," Page said in an email promoting the book. "The full story including far more detailed information regarding last year's election will be revealed with the publication of this important new book next year."
Of the many advisers to Trump in 2016, Page stands out because media reports say the FBI was able to successfully obtain a warrant to surveil him. To obtain the warrant, the bureau is also reported to have leaned heavily on the so-called "Steele Dossier," which was put together by former British spy Christopher Steele. The veracity of the dossier is widely doubted, however, and Page said the dossier "did not include one single truthful word about me other than the spelling of my name."
The FBI also questioned Page numerous times earlier in the year. Page said he cooperated and agreed to be interviewed without his lawyer present, telling the Washington Examiner, "Our frank and open conversations gave me confidence that there are still logical, honest individuals at the bureau who respect civil rights and the Constitution, despite the recent devastating impact on our democracy by self-centered politicians at the top of the Clinton-Obama-Comey regime."
