'Russia tried to use Trump advisers to influence election'

"The officials we spoke to made clear", Brown added, "that they don't know whether Page was aware the Russians may have been using him as well as the other advisors because of the way that Russian spy services operate". A month later, during a speech to Moscow's higher education institute, the New Economic School, he openly criticized the US, saying it had a "hypocritical focus on ideas such as democratization, inequality, corruption and regime change". There, he criticized the US government's foreign policy. After those reports, people that the U.S. was monitoring changed their behavior, which made it more hard for USA officials to monitor them.

Carter Page was specifically mentioned in the bombshell story.

Page's relationship with Russian Federation began to draw scrutiny during the campaign after he visited Moscow in July 2016 for a speech at the New Economic School.

Smerconish asked Page again to directly confirm or deny the report.

It would also be United's first European final since they lost the 2011 Champions League decider against Barcelona at Wembley. Elsewhere, Ajax reached its first European semifinal in 20 years with a 4-3 aggregate win over Schalke after extra time.

The investigation was opened in late July, according to The Times.

The FBI later got a warrant under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (Fisa) to monitor Mr Page's communications.

Page, who left the campaign in September, appeared in the "Trump Dossier" created by a former British intelligence operative working for a USA political research group.

Page is named in several of the memos. A former banker for Merrill Lynch, Page spent three years in Moscow, where he worked on various energy deals-among them the reorganization of the electric power holding company RAO UES, which began in 2006. Page doesn't oblige and in fact just kind of rambles incoherently about how the accusations of Russian interference are harmful to national security.

And Facebook engineers have created a system that enables wordless communication via tactile actuators worn on the subject's arm. Researchers say this technology would use skin instead of the ear to take in sound and send information to the brain.

Trump campaign veterans have insisted that Page was a minor figure on the campaign. One of the memos asserts that Trump lawyer Michael Cohen met with Kremlin operatives in Prague in August to discuss meddling in the presidential campaign.

The document was reportedly the brainchild of former British MI-6 official Christopher Steele, who is a current co-owner of Orbis Business Intelligence, Ltd., a London-based opposition research firm. Last month, he confirmed that he was one of several Trump allies who privately met with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak during the campaign. But there is reason to question any information provided by Millian. Trump aides insist the president has no relationship with Page and did not have any dealings with him during the campaign. He has also overstated his relationships with other companies, The Daily Caller and other news outlets have reported. Following that trip, the Federal Bureau of Investigation was able to secure a FISA warrant to monitor Page. It is unclear whether any charges will be brought against Trump's former policy adviser.

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and longtime Trump confidante Roger Stone are also under FBI investigation for alleged ties to the Kremlin.
