Page FISA Facts

This table attempts to capture the description of the information in each Carter Page FISA application, as described in the DOJ IG Report on the topic. The italicized information was deemed to have no supporting information in the Woods file. The bolded information was deemed to be inaccurate (though the comment about George Papaodpoulos’ FBI interviews appears to be accurate by my understanding). I have not carried over earlier claims into later columns, as I’m not sure whether it was all retained. But this table should should what new information the FBI brought with each application.

Note that this table does not reflect information the IG Report deemed to have been inappropriately excluded.

Efforts of RIS to influence upcoming 2016 elections

George Papadopoulos Details

In or about March 2016, George Papadopoulos [footnote omitted] and Carter Page (the target of this application) were publicly identified by Candidate #1 as part of his/her foreign policy team. Based on reporting from a friendly foreign government, which has provided reliable information in the past ... the FBI believes that the Russian Government's efforts are being coordinated with Page and perhaps other individuals associated with Candidate #l's campaign. In or about July 2016, the above-referenced friendly foreign government provided information to a senior official within the U.S. [government] regarding efforts made by the Russian Government to influence the 2016 U.S. Presidential election. Specifically, according to this information, during a meeting in or about April 2016 between officials of the friendly foreign government and George Papadopoulos ... Papadopoulos suggested that Candidate #l's campaign had received some kind of suggestion from Russia that Russia could assist with the anonymous release of information during the campaign that would be damaging to another candidate for U.S. President (Candidate #2). It was unclear whether Papadopoulos or the Russians were referring to material acquired publicly or through other means. It was also unclear from this reporting how Candidate #l's campaign reacted to the alleged Russian offer. Nevertheless, as discussed below, the FBI believes that election influence efforts are being coordinated between the RIS and Page, and possibly others.

Papadopoulos is a current subject of an FBI investigation.

As of March 2017, the FBI has conducted several interviews with Papadopoulos. During these interviews, Papadopoulos confirmed that he met with officials from the above-referenced friendly foreign government, but he denied that he discussed anything related to the Russian Government during these meetings.

Page informing Russian Minister he was Male-1

 Page met with the FBI CHS on a particular date in October and made statements that led the FBI to believe that Page continued to be closely tied to Russian officials, including the suggestion that "the Russians" would be giving him an "open checkbook" to fund a foreign policy think tank project. The description also stated that Page told the CHS that he may be appearing in a televised interview to discuss the potential for change in U.S. foreign policy toward Russia and Syria in the event Trump wins the presidential election.

6 redacted investigative results (one involves trip to Russia)

In December 2016, Carter Page made statements to an FBI CHS (summarized in Chapter Ten), distancing himself from his October suggestion of establishing a Russian-funded think tank, citing funding issues as a reason, which the FBI assessed was an indication that Page was likely trying to distance himself from Russia as a result of media reporting that continued to tie Page to Russia.

Page downplayed his interactions with Dvorkovich during his March 2017 interviews with the FBI. During these interviews, Page characterized his interaction with Dvorkovich in July 2016 as a simple introduction in passing and a brief handshake.

At a later point in the interview, after the FBI explained to Page how Page could be viewed as having a source-handler or co-optee relationship with the Russian intelligence officers, Page claimed that he believed that he was "on the books," but that he only provided the Russian intelligence officers with "immaterial non-public" information.

Also during the interviews, Page denied ever meeting with Sechin or Divyekin.

According to information on its website, Gazprombank was founded by Gazprom to provide banking services for gas industry enterprises.

Christopher Steele details

Four allegations from Steele:

Dossier compiled on Hillary

Alleged meeting with Igor Sechin

Intermediary between Manafort and Russia

Russia releases emails to WikiLeaks to swing voters, a move supported by Page

In addition to the specific information pertaining to Page reported in this application, [Steele] has provided other information relating to the Russian Government's efforts to influence the election that do not directly pertain to Page, including the possibility of the Russian's [sic] also possessing a dossier on Candidate #1, which the FBI is currently investigating.

Steele is a former [redacted] and has been an FBI source since in or about October 2013. [Steele's] reporting has been corroborated and used in criminal proceedings and the FBI assesses [Steele] to be reliable. [Steele] has been compensated approx. $95,000 by the FBI and the FBI is unaware of any derogatory information pertaining to [Steele]

Steele’s reporting relies on a Primary Sub-source who uses a network of sub-sources; neither Steele nor the Sub-source has direct access to the sub-sources

[Steele] reported the information contained therein to the FBI over the course of several meetings with the FBI from in or about June 2016 through August 2016.

[Steele], who now owns a foreign business/financial intelligence firm,

was approached by an identified U.S. person, who indicated to [Steele]

that a U.S.-based law firm had hired the identified U.S. person to

conduct research regarding Candidate #l's ties to Russia (the

identified U.S. person and [Steele] have a long-standing business

relationship). The identified U.S. person hired [Steele] to conduct this

research. The identified U.S. person never advised [Steele] as to the

motivation behind the research into Candidate #l's ties to Russia. The

FBI speculates that the identified U.S. person was likely looking for

information that could be used to discredit Candidate # 1 's

campaign

As discussed above, [Steele] was hired by a business associate to conduct research into Candidate #l's ties to Russia. [Steele] provided the results of his research to the business associate, and the FBI assesses that the business associate likely provided this information to the law firm that hired the business associate in the first place. [Steele] told the FBI that he/she only provided this information to the business associate and the FBI. Given that the information contained in the September 23rd News Article generally matches the information about Page that [Steele] discovered during his/her research, the FBI assesses that [Steele's] business associate or the law firm that hired the business associate likely provided this information to the press. The FBI also assesses that whoever gave the information to the press stated that the information was provided by a "well-placed Western intelligence source." The FBI does not believe that [Steele] directly provided this information to the press.

In or about late October 2016, however, after the Director of the FBI sent a letter to the U.S. Congress, which stated that the FBI had learned of new information that might be pertinent to an investigation that the FBI was conducting of Candidate #2, [Steele] told the FBI that he/she was frustrated with this action and believed it would likely influence the 2016 U.S. Presidential election. In response to [Steele's] concerns, [Steele] independently, and against the prior admonishment from the FBI to speak only with the FBI on this matter, released the reporting discussed herein to an identified news organization. Although the FBI continues to assess [that] [Steele's] reporting is reliable, as noted above, the FBI has suspended its relationship with [Steele] because of this disclosure.
