Twitter Has a Field Day After Carter Page’s House Testimony In Russia Probe Is Released

This evening, the House Intelligence Committee released the testimony given in a closed-door hearing by former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page last week. The interview with the committee was related to the ongoing investigation into Russian election meddling and whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials.

Prior to the release of the 200+ page transcript, we had already been given reports that Page’s testimony included some juicy tidbits such as revelations that he met with Russian officials during a trip to Moscow and he informed Jeff Sessions about the trip during the campaign. Page also told CNN’s Jake Tapper that he told a “few people” about his Russia trip.

Of course, considering that Page met with the Intel Committee for seven hours, it was a given that we’d get some more details. And did we ever! One thing Page told the lawmakers is he raised the idea of then-candidate Donald Trump visiting Russia during the campaign, likening it to Barack Obama’s Germany trip in 2008.

As folks flipped through the dozens of pages of testimony this evening, we got tons of reaction to what they found in the transcript.
