On Thursday’s episode of “The Sara Carter Show,” Former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page first reacted to the news of former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith’s guilty plea before a federal court this week. Clinesmith could face up to six months in prison for altering the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants used to spy on Page in order to obtain dirt on the Campaign, which he admitted to before the Judge.
Page told Carter of Clinesmith’s plea, “Sara, to me and I think, as you’ve been correctly reporting accurately for years now. I’m still not sure now why you haven’t received a Pulitzer prize for your incredible work whereas a lot of people from the New York Times and Washington Post have, but… as you’ve been saying for a long time, there’s a lot more to come.”
He added, “And I think what’s really nice about what happened last Friday. It really was a turning point. And if you read those five pages in the charging document against Mr. Clinesmith and the elements to that… there’s a lot of interesting clues and… having lived through it, I know there’s a lot more interesting clues as well… This is definitely another indication that there should be so much more to come.”
Moreover, Page says he’s feeling more “optimistic” about what’s to come from U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the now-debunked ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal
In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.
Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.
Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.
Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.
Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.
Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
