Courtesy of The Hill:Carter Page to @CNN's @ChrisCuomo: "I've been the victim of one of the most Horrendous Civil Rights violations..." https://t.co/3FeN6FEzWh— New Day (@NewDay) April 27, 2017
A former campaign adviser to Donald Trump said Thursday he was “the victim of one of the most horrendous civil rights violations” during the 2016 presidential election.
“I have been the victim of one of the most horrendous civil rights violations in recent U.S. election history,” Carter Page told co-host Chris Cuomo on CNN’s “New Day.”
Page’s comments came after Cuomo pushed him to disclose how he became involved in Trump’s campaign, first claiming that it is confidential and then saying he doesn’t want to create issues for other people.
Page denied the allegations against him, saying they have caused “a complete firestorm based on this completely false narrative.”
Later Cuomo offered Page the opportunity to clear up any misunderstandings, this was his response.
Yeah any problems that Carter page is now facing are the direct result of his own actions and his own statements to the press.[email protected] to fmr Trump aid Carter Page "Sometimes I scratch my head and wonder why you're doing" these interviews https://t.co/pBm6kNqPve— New Day (@NewDay) April 27, 2017
