Despite it being a well established fact that misconduct took place in the FBI in order to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page, Democrat House Intel Chair Adam Schiff isn’t sympathetic.
I have to say Carter Page came before our committee and for hours of his testimony, denied things that we knew were true, later had to admit them during his testimony
It’s hard to be sympathetic to someone who isn’t honest with you when he comes and testifies under oath. It’s also hard to be sympathetic when you have someone who has admitted to being an adviser to the Kremlin.
.@RepAdamSchiff is unsympathetic to Carter Page, telling @FiringLineShow that Page “denied things that we knew were true” in testimony, admitted to being an advisor to the Kremlin & “was apparently both targeted by the KGB, but also talking to the United States and its agencies." pic.twitter.com/GkjdGQZWLV

Per DailyCaller, Schiff did not expand on why he thought Page gave misleading remarks during his Nov. 2, 2017, testimony. Page, a former Naval officer, pushed for a release of the transcript shortly after his testimony. He was also never accused in the special counsel’s investigation of making false statements to Congress.
Page responded on Twitter, saying he considers Schiff to be “more untrustworthy and dangerous” than a former FBI lawyer alleged in the IG report to have altered an email about Page.
There have been various allegations of dishonesty regarding FBI lawyer Clinesmith. On information, belief and firsthand experience since 2017, I have actually found @RepAdamSchiff to be even more untrustworthy and dangerous with his misuse of @DNC lies:https://t.co/kMkRYFceGs
