Carter Page has stoutly denied on many occasions that he held “secret talks” in Moscow on his infamous trip there on 7-8 July 2016. But a high ranking Russian official and economist, Mikhail Delyagin, said that he did. #steele #carterpage #russiagate
1/ Here’s the link to the Russian web page, which is dated 11 July 2016, a few days after Page’s trip to Moscow. It is headlined: “Counselor Trump [Carter Page] and Gazprom held secret talks in Moscow - and sat on the podium.”
2/ This is further evidence of the credibility and importance of the Steele dossier, which alleged that Page did have secret talks in Moscow. Steele’s sources, however, told him that the talks were with Sechin, the head of Rosneft, the Russian Federation’s giant oil company.
3/ Delyagin says the secret talks were with Gazprom--which makes more sense, since Page had contacts with Gazprom from his time in Moscow when he worked for Merrill Lynch.
4/ The head of Gazprom is Alexey Miller, who is also close to Putin (though not quite as close as Sechin). Gazprom is even more important to Putin for geopolitical reasons than Rosneft.
5/ The amazing Christopher Steele might, of course, turn out to be right about Page having had “secret talks” with Sechin as well.
6/ But in any case, it is significant that Delyakin alleges (in a post that has been deleted and had to be retrieved from archives) that Page did hold “secret talks” in Moscow--which Page has denied.
7/ Stedman says he will be posting more of his findings about Page in the new future. Stay tuned.
