Carter Page, former aide to President Donald Trump, said he had been "completely blocked" from testifying before congressional committees investigating connections between Russia and the president's associates, The Hill reported Saturday.
Page complained former FBI Director James Comey had testified three times before congressional committees, while his request to testify about the "senseless witch hunt" had gone ignored.
"It is unfathomable that Comey got his third chance in as many months to testify about the senseless witch hunt that he led on behalf of the Clinton campaign and Obama administration, but I have been completely blocked from testifying," Page told the Washington Examiner in an article published Saturday.
Page has previously maintained the Senate and House Intelligence Committees had disregarded his complaints about a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) warrant the administration of former President Barack Obama had to spy on him. In April Page told CNN he had been "the victim of one of the most horrendous civil rights violations in recent U.S. election history."
Page said he was also pursuing legal action against a dossier compiled by former British intelligence agent, Christopher Steele, that led to the surveillance that alleged he met with Russian officials during Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, The Hill reported.
