So I was supporting the FBI, " Page told ABC News.

"What I've seen thus far is just complete ridiculousness", Page told George Stephanopoulos on ABC News' Good Morning America on Tuesday. "It was just shredded - the Constitution".

Jerome Powell Takes Oath as Fed Chief

Carter Page, the former adviser for President Donald Trump's campaign who was notoriously the subject of Federal Bureau of Investigation surveillance, appeared on ABC's Good Morning America on Tuesday to discuss the GOP's memo describing how the Federal Bureau of Investigation went about getting a FISA warrant targeting him. McClatchy reported previous year that in 2008, the U.S. Embassy in Turkmenistan sent a cable to the U.S. State Department describing how Page had met with government officials in the country, which was formerly part of the Soviet Union, about possibly working for their oil companies. That represented a "troubling breakdown" in the process established to protect Americans from government intrusions into their private lives, the memo said. The letter in which Page's own words appear was recently obtained by TIME.

"These desperate and unfounded calls for my investigation as a private citizen to advance political interests based on nothing more than preposterous mainstream media reports is a true disgrace", he wrote to Comey at the time.

Page is at the center of a controversial memo from Republican Congressman Devin Nunes, released this week.

Page ultimately met with, emailed, and provided "documents" to Podobny about the "energy business", according to the case against Podobny. Page told Stephanopoulos Tuesday morning he "appreciates" that effort. And he actually said he was a very low-level member of I think a committee for a short period of time.

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. But he said he only served briefly and never met Trump.
