Statement by Carter Page, Ph.D.

, regarding
Dismissal of FBI Director Comey
May 10, 2017

It is encouraging that further steps toward restoring justice in


America have been taken with the termination and removal from
office of FBI Director James Comey yesterday. Although I
have never met President Trump, his strength and judgment in
holding senior officials accountable for wrongdoing stands in
stark contrast to last year when ordinary private citizens outside
of Washington like myself were targeted for exercising their
Constitutional rights. Under James Comeys leadership in 2016,
I was allegedly the subject of an intensive domestic political
intelligence operation instigated by the FBI and based on
completely false allegations in a FISA warrant application.1
While I have been severely bullied by the Clinton/Obama
regime myself, it is unfortunate that Comey did not have the
courage to stand up for what's right when he was also pressured
and perhaps unwittingly misguided by them on these matters.

Yesterdays decision to hold Mr. Comey accountable for his


well-publicized missteps on July 5, 2016 and October 28, 2016
are likely to be just the tip of the iceberg given the completely
fake Russia allegations against myself and others which he
vigorously perpetuated in his Congressional testimonies. The

mistakes that Comey made in all of the various investigations
surrounding innumerable conspicuous crimes by Mrs. Clinton
may thus be eventually eclipsed by the far more serious abuse of
power and terrible judgment seen in their collaborative efforts to
directly influence the 2016 election. Although the details of
these civil rights violations have seldom been recognized given
the prior false and misleading testimony of Comey, they are
preliminarily summarized in the Appendix, below. These
offenses were predominantly displayed while Comeys FBI
allegedly acted as a collaborator with Dodgy Dossier author
Christopher Steele and led the 2016 FISA warrant witch hunt
against me.2 Prompt disclosure of these associated false FISA
warrant documents issued on behalf of the Clinton campaign
now represents an essential step in restoring faith in the
American justice system.

Amongst other instances of collaboration with Clinton


associates related to the 2016 Dodgy Dossier, Harry Reid
previously asked Director Comey to investigate supposed
meetings with sanctioned officials which were cited in that fake
document but which I never participated in.3 When I appealed to
James Comey for justice and sanity in a letter on September 25,
2016, not only were my requests ignored but the illegal
surveillance by the Obama Administration allegedly continued.
I was offered no opportunity for any direct interaction with U.S.

government agents on these matters until after the end of the
Obama Administration on January 20, 2017. The justice system
in the United States must once again recognize equal rights for
average citizens like me as well as powerful politicians like Mrs.
Clinton and Harry Reid, irrespective of a persons political
standing.

Comey told Congressman Adam Schiff on March 20: I try very


hard not to engage in any isms of any kind, including --
including McCarthyism.4 To the contrary, discussions I held
with federal agents under Comeys command that month were
reminiscent of the loyalty tests under FBI Director J. Edgar
Hoover during the original McCarthy era. Agents in March
2017 told me that the Bureaus management was particularly
concerned that I did not subscribe to the fake, politically-
motivated intelligence report commissioned by the Obama
Administration and released on January 6, 2017.5 Worse yet, I
was extensively harassed with an intensive interrogation
regarding each of the completely false allegations of the 2016
Dodgy Dossier. Yet in a lame attempt to maintain some
semblance of legitimacy for himself, Comey never
acknowledged how completely false these allegations against
me were upon being questioned in Congress multiple times and

despite there being absolutely no evidence to support them. The
only basis has been the continued whining lies and false
documents from failed campaign associates of Mrs. Clinton.

Senator Charles Grassley, Senator Lindsey Graham and others


members of the Judiciary Committee have rightfully demanded
answers surrounding the civil rights abuses against myself and
others. As of yet, these legitimate demands have been ignored
and represent a pattern of obstruction.6 In contrast to the lies
from the Clinton campaign and the propaganda of the Obama
Administration, this stands as the most genuinely problematic
interference in last years election. It must now be immediately
resolved with full disclosure of all information surrounding the
illegal, baseless surveillance instigated by the FBI under
Comeys leadership on behalf of Mrs. Clintons failed campaign
in 2016.

Displaying a similar omniscient bias and a characteristic


disregard for the rules of evidence, Comey told Senator Lindsey
Graham last week that Russia is, Certainly in my view, the
greatest threat of any nation on earth, given their intention and
their capability. 7 Rather than his overstepping the Bureaus
lines of domestic responsibility yet again, America and myself

must now be immediately relieved of these false Russia
conspiracy theories. Until this is resolved, the risks to American
civil liberties and U.S. foreign policy will remain as a tragic
legacy from the Obama Administration.
