Former Trump adviser Page wants McCabe subpoenaed to testify before Senate

"I think it's another example of the complete double standards," said Page. "So many Trump supporters, including myself, were dragged in front of not only the U.S. Senate ... but the House."

Former Trump 2016 campaign adviser Carter Page says former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should be subpoenaed to testify Tuesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, after backing out over coronavirus concerns.

"Hopefully a subpoena is issued today," Page told "Just the News AM" host Carrie Sheffield. "It's now Monday morning, and I hope that is resolved so that he can show up and be held to account and answer for these terrible problems that were created."

McCabe was set to testify before the committee on the FBI's now-discredited Trump-Russia probe. However, the committee postponed the hearing over McCabe's coronavirus concerns, after two GOP members, Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), tested positive for the virus in recent days. 

McCabe's attorney said the alternative, to testify remotely via video camera, would be too complex and contentious. 

"I think it's another example of the complete double standards," said Page. "So many Trump supporters including myself, were dragged in front of not only the U.S. Senate, which is what's in question here, but the House."

Page, on whom the FBI illegally eavesdropped, also expressed frustration about being a target in special counsel Robert Mueller's years-long collusion probe.
