Former Donald Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page touted his connections with Russian officials in a 2013 letter, referring to himself as an "advisor to the staff of the Kremlin," Time reports.  

"Over the past half year, I have had the privilege to serve as an informal advisor to the staff of the Kremlin in preparation for their Presidency of the G-20 Summit next month, where energy issues will be a prominent point on the agenda," the letter reads.

Page told Time he "sat in on and contributed to a few roundtable discussion with people from around the world," starting when he met a Russian diplomat at an energy conference in New York City.

The letter was sent during a dispute about edits on a manuscript Page had written.

Page served briefly as a foreign polic adviser to Trump's campaign until Sept. 2016, when  reports emerged of his ties to Russia, including his July 2016 visit to Moscow where he reportedly met with sanctioned Russian officials.

He's been a central focus of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, and now a principal figure in the controversial memo released Friday by the House Intelligence Committee claiming the FBI and Justice Department relied on the anti-Trump dossier to obtain FISA surveillance warrants to spy on him.

He has denied any wrongdoing related to the Russia probe, and has not been charged with any crimes.
