Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page on Sunday called allegations that he was a Russian agent “spin,” a “ridiculous smear campaign” and “literally a complete joke” — but admitted that he had worked as an informal adviser to the Russian government.

Page appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” following the release Saturday of new documents tied to his wiretapping, including the government’s application to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and subsequent renewals.

Page called himself an “informal adviser” to Russia in a 2013 letter.

“I’ve never been an agent of [a] foreign power by any stretch of the imagination,” Page said Sunday.

Page specifically denied having ever communicated with Igor Sechin or Igor Diveykin, Russians who were listed in the documents. »
