Both on Good Morning America and during an interview on Monday night's edition of Laura Ingraham's Fox News show, Page played up the significance of a recently released House Republican intelligence memo alleging the FBI's investigation of the Trump campaign is rooted in anti-Trump bias among Obama-era officials.

On Tuesday morning, the former Trump campaign adviser told ABC's George Stephanopoulos that "there was no basis" for his surveillance by the Federal Bureau of Investigation despite having claimed in 2013 to being an informal adviser to the Kremlin. President Trump himself cited the FBI's harsh treatment of Clinton as a reason to fire then-FBI Director James Comey. A controversial Republican intelligence memo released last week highlighted that Page had been targeted.

"There was a lot of people advising", Page replied. Page admits talking to the undercover Russian spy but said he did not realize that the man was an intelligence agent at the time and that he did not share anything sensitive.

"I$3 became a liability pretty quick", he said.

The letter was sent during a dispute about edits on a manuscript Page had written. Page has continued to deny the reports.

Says Page, "Does that make me an evil villain, as some of your sources would like to have you think?"

Page was on the FBI's radar long before the 2016 Steele dossier, according to Time.

The New York Times reporters and The New York Times Company seek to disclose those orders to facilitate the ongoing public debate over the propriety of the surveillance orders and the related investigation being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. I don't think I've ever met him. McClatchy reported previous year that in 2008, the U.S. Embassy in Turkmenistan sent a cable to the U.S. State Department describing how Page had met with government officials in the country, which was formerly part of the Soviet Union, about possibly working for their oil companies.

Gidley added that, "While President Trump has the utmost respect and support for the rank-and-file members of the F.B.I., the anti-Trump bias at the top levels that appear to have existed is troubling".
