Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page says in a newly resurfaced video that he attended "a number of meetings" with President TrumpDonald John TrumpSchiff: Nunes gave Trump "secretly altered" version of memo Davis: "Deep state" existed in '16 - but it elected Trump Former Trump legal spokesman to testify to Mueller about undisclosed call: report MORE.

He was pressed on whether he had ever communicated with the president, including over email or text.

Page said during the ABC News interview on Tuesday that he "never spoke" with Trump "any time in my life".

"I never spoke with him since".

The speech was aired live by Kremlin-connected Russia Today.

A former Trump campaign adviser at the center of the discredited dossier said everything he has seen so far is ridiculous.

"Carter Page is a person who's going out and telling everybody that he was part of the campaign; he had no formal role in the campaign".

After leaving his post as an adviser to the Trump campaign back in October 2016, Page took a trip to Russian Federation which put him back in the FBI's sights. "In terms of actual briefings that's not something I like to talk about".

Both on Good Morning America and during an interview on Monday night's edition of Laura Ingraham's Fox News show, Page played up the significance of a recently released House Republican intelligence memo alleging the FBI's investigation of the Trump campaign is rooted in anti-Trump bias among Obama-era officials.

"The math on that... the 19 percent had a market value of about 11 billion dollars, so if you think I am going to get paid off some way... that seems like a pretty... pretty hefty sum", Page commented.

"It sounds - giving documents, to a quote unquote spy - it sounds a lot worse than reality, but that's reality".

Stephanopoulos also mentioned Page's relationship with Victor Podobnyy, who was later charged with working as a Russian intelligence agent under diplomatic cover.

Victor Podobnyy, a Russian intelligence agent who was claiming to work at Moscow's United Nations mission in NY, tried to recruit Page, according to court documents.
