MSNBC host Chris Hayes gave President Donald Trump's former foreign policy adviser Carter Page an introduction he likely was not expecting Monday evening as he sat down to discuss the indictment of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and the guilty plea of another former Trump campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos.

"Congratulations for not being indicted," Hayes said after introducing Page.

"Of course not!" Page quickly responded with a laugh.

What does Page have to do with the investigation?

While Page played down Papadopoulos's role in the campaign, he also admitted that he was likely included in some email correspondence with Papadopoulos, who pled guilty earlier this month to charges of making a false statement to the FBI about his communication with the Russian government.

“Look, there is a lot of emails all over the place when you’re in a campaign," Page said.

"Yes or no. Were you on email chains with Papadopoulos?" Hayes pushed back.

"Probably a few, yeah," Page replied.

"Were you on email chains about Russia?" Hayes pressed.

"It may have come up time and time again. There is nothing major, yeah," Page told him.

Page testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee for over five hours during closed door meetings on Friday and is scheduled to testify before the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday.

He vehemently denied any wrongdoing or Russian collusion on Monday evening.

"I'm very, very open and happy to give all the information I can in the interest of really getting the truth out there. ... I think the truth will set a lot of people free," he said.
