In an aired visit to Moscow Carter Page a former Donald Trump campaign advisor and founder and managing partner of Global Energy Capital with direct ties to Russia, said that although his post election influence is definitely more limited he acknowledged think tanks were a good channel to continue ‘pushing this agenda’. Carter alluded to a more grassroots approach but only mentioned the bare minimums of what this might look like.

Hillary warned, at what seemed an even more ironic retiring ceremony for Sen. Harry Reid that,
