U.S. intelligence surmises Donald Trump’s counselor for foreign affairs might be involved in backlog compromises with the Kremlin. Yahoo News reported this with the reference to a source in the American special services.
Trump’s aide Carter Page visited Moscow two days ago, perhaps for negotiations with the Russian side about support for his chief during the U.S. presidential race. At a recent briefing, the U.S. intelligence expressed serious concern over possible influence of the Kremlin on the U.S. presidential election. The intelligence employees maintain Page could have negotiated with the highly-ranked Russian officials who fell under Western sanctions due to the Russian aggression in Ukraine.
The report by the U.S. intelligence says that Trump’s counselors might be especially interested in friendly relations with Moscow.
Trump’s electoral campaign HQ never commented on Page’s visit to Moscow.
