“Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page called the recent indictment of former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith the “first step on the road to justice” on Tuesday, four years after the feds began spying on Page in 2016 and his life was “overturned.”

Friday was just a first step on the road to justice because it was the first time that I started to see some semblance of justice from the DOJ and FBI with the fact they were acting in accordance with Crime Victims’ Rights Act, a law that was totally avoided and not respected throughout last four years,” Page told “Mornings with Maria.”

Clinesmith is expected to plead guilty to making a false statement in the first criminal case arising from U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the investigation into links between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign, two sources close to the matter tell Fox News.

“The charging document against Mr. Clinesmith, it really is just the tip of the iceberg in so many ways,” Page said.

“It was false conspiracies and made-up lies paid for by Democrats,” he continued. “I actually sent Mr. Clinesmith a letter in April 2017, you know, to your point about media, there were some media leaks and lies and misrepresentations, on the Rachel Maddow Show on ‘MSDNC,’ and sure enough I get more threatening calls from Oklahoma that night.” (Read more: Fox News, 8/18/2020)  (Archive)
