For the first time about its existence in America has learned from an interview with the Washington Post with Donald trump in March of this year, in which trump suddenly announced the list of his advisers on foreign policy. It was five people – all of them known to the expert community and the General public. It is clear that they were interested in, and in respect of a page was found the following information. He’s 45 years old, he is the founder and managing partner in new York investment Fund Global Energy Capital.
According to his official biography provided by his company, Paige worked at the investment firm Merrill Lynch (she came to the brink of bankruptcy when the crisis erupted in 2008-2009, and was absorbed by Bank of America). Worked in new York, London and Moscow, where he was engaged in transactions that had relation to Gazprom and other Russian companies from the energy sector. Senior positions at Merrill Lynch were not occupied.
In 2008, along with former Manager of Gazprom Sergey Yatsenko, he founded a company called Global Energy Capital. At this company, according to Wikipedia, there is no office – it was the address of father Carter page. Internet Politico writes, citing people from the sphere of Russian energy company Global Energy Capital has not yet implemented any project. The same Politico tried to find out something about Paige from Western businessmen for a long time worked in Russia and had to deal with the Russian energy sector: none of them knew who Paige.
When Carter Paige became interested in mass media, the reporters found his statements and publications, in which he praised what is happening in Russia and criticized America.
Someone can say that he deserved an investigation, which is currently under got. However, the American press wrote: Paige went to Moscow and met with influential people from the “sanctions list”. With them, according to Yahoo News, he allegedly led a talk about the fact that trump, if he becomes President, will help to lift the sanctions.
Trump, in turn, is today the bearer of Supreme state secrets – he, like Hillary Clinton, receives regular briefings from the security services. These secrets he can share with his advisers, and one of them – Paige – according to the FBI, is able to transmit them to Moscow.
Now in the U.S. Congress heard demands to remove trump from secret briefings to senior officials. Some also requires trump to do the cleaning in his office and removed therefrom all persons with suspicious connections type Carter Paige or Paul Manafort – the former head of the electoral headquarters trump, who was forced to resign when it was revealed that he received millions of dollars in business, Viktor Yanukovych. He advised and now deceased dictator: the Philippines – Ferdinand Marcos and Zaire – Mobutu Sese Seko.
“The Moscow connection” trump will spin on and on. But while all only at the level of suspicion and preliminary investigation. Official binani no one imposes – including Carter page. Although before the election there is still time – a little less than a month and a half.
