The memo also cites then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe as saying that the FBI could not have obtained the FISA warrant without the unverified Trump dossier produced by Steele.

The video clip tweeted by Scott Dworkin, an MSNBC contributor and founder of the anti-Trump Democratic Coalition, surfaced after Page said during an interview Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America" that he has never had any communication with Trump.

After declassifying the memo on Friday, President Trump called the FBI's actions "a disgrace" and said "a lot of people should be ashamed".

Asked about being under the FBI's radar after being part of a Russian recruitment effort in 2013, Page said he was helping the bureau.

Page disputed the dossier, claiming he never met with Russian energy magnate Igor Sechin and was never offered a "19 percent stake" in the oil company to remove sanctions on Russia. "I would never have seen him in the center of concern like this, or playing a role or being seen as an intermediary between the Russian government and a political candidate", the editor said.

The letter, dated August 25, 2013, was sent by Page to an academic press during a dispute over edits to an unpublished manuscript he had submitted for publication, according to an editor who worked with Page. The Steele dossier does not identify its sources and Page has denied any wrongdoing.

Page's extensive Russian contacts again became a focus for investigators in 2016 and a warrant was obtained under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to surveil him. Podobnyy and one of the Russians had diplomatic immunity and left the U.S. The third Russian was arrested and eventually expelled from the U.S.in April 2017. "For now, his enthusiasm works for me", the recruiter says of Page.

"I've certainly been in a number of meetings with him and I've learned a tremendous amount from him".

Page told Fox News Monday night that the letter was "totally taken out of context". I don't think I've ever met him. "He struck me just as someone who had developed some unusual academic views ... and wanted to have them published", the editor says.

Gidley added that, "While President Trump has the utmost respect and support for the rank-and-file members of the F.B.I., the anti-Trump bias at the top levels that appear to have existed is troubling".
