Former Trump Campaign Advisor Subpoenaed by Senate Intel Committee

“There is nothing I have done wrong."

Carter Page, a former Trump campaign advisor has been subpoenaed to present documents and testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.  Fox News reports that he has also been asked to turn over records pertaining to Russian contacts and communications over the last seven years, but believes that the request “virtually insures (sic) some level of false testimony.” Page has denied reports that he plans to invoke his fifth amendment right to silence. Page told CNN Tuesday: "I'm cooperating with everyone in DC who wants my help" to end this "witch hunt." 

Page will be testifying on the role of social media and Moscow's interference in the 2016 election. The hearing, which will take place on November 1, will explore how Moscow was able to leverage social media to target key demographics. With no background in social media, Page said he wants to discuss "the severe fake news that private and U.S. state-funded media organizations defamed me with in the months prior to the election.”
