Former Trump campaign aide reportedly won’t cooperate with the Senate Intelligence Committee’s Russia probe

Carter Page, a former aide to President Donald Trump’s campaign, told the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday that he won’t testify before the panel for its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, Politico reports.

A source with knowledge of the situation told Politico that Page would plead the Fifth Amendment, which, in effect, gives him the right to remain silent.

However, the Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr and Vice Chairman Mark Warner previously said they may force anyone relevant to the investigation, including Page, to testify before the panel through the use of subpoenas, Politico reports.

The Committee has requested meetings with prominent Trump advisers, including Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, in its investigation of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

    I think this is great, everyone involved with the Obama tribe pleaded the 5th on everything! And the Mueller gang of thugs are going way beyond what they were ask to do, all just for a big fat pay check!! Hellary must want more money from them!

    In Senate hearings it must be hard to judge the better course. On one hand I’ve read articles from attorneys who say to refuse to answer any questions by police (read Senate) – – it just prevents them from twisting statements with memory failures into lies. On the other hand when one gets into politics, which I think usually Senate hearings are, the public response to failing to respond is usually negative and interpreted as being hiding what you have actually done. Maybe this is why so few highly qualified people want anything to do with Washington.
