Back in July 2016, just before the formal launch of the FBI's investigation of Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election, a bureau informant met in Britain with a Trump campaign adviser and energy consultant named Carter Page who had just returned from a trip to Moscow.Page told The Washington Post last year that he'd had "extensive discussions" with the FBI.What had Page been doing in Moscow before he met the FBI informant?Aleksashenko says Page left Moscow in 2007 when told he wouldn't be promoted above vice president there; Page says that account is "false" and that Aleksashenko, now a fellow at the Brookings Institution, has been critical of Trump supporters.In 2013, Russian intelligence allegedly made a run at Page. The story is outlined in the 2015 indictment of three Russian intelligence officers, which includes a transcript of FBI surveillance of Victor Podobnyy, a member of the Russian U.N. team who was actually an intelligence officer, talking about a target identified as "Male-1," who was Page.
