VIENNA/WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The letter by Carter Page, who is also the founder and a managing partner of Global Energy Capital LLC, is addressed to OSCE Chairman and German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and head of the organization's Election Observation Mission Audrey Glover. Its receipt was confirmed to Sputink by an OSCE spokesperson.
"The mission from the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights [ODIHR] has received the email you reference," an OSCE/ODIHR spokesperson said.
In his letter, Page cites multiple violations of the election norms and good practices by the "Hillary for America" campaign.
Secondly, Clinton campaign committed a discriminatory and ungrounded media report accusing the advisor of Kremlin ties, according to the letter citing Yahoo News publication as of September 23, which was "almost entirely attributable to 'Hillary for America' campaign." Page claims that some journalists later disclosed to him that story ideas were provided to them by Clinton's team.
Thirdly, a law firm close to Clinton campaign has hired a London-based private agent to investigate Page's trip to Moscow in July, according to the letter. Page calls it "partisan manoeuvres" and says he has been "targeted for potential reprisal merely for vocalizing thoughts in a free academic forum."
The advisor, who had to suspend his campaign activities because of all the above-mentioned allegations, claims that "Hillary for America" has strong connections with US federal authorities, which makes such personal attacks go ahead unchallenged.
Page suggests that "the ongoing series of personal vindictive attacks" aim at distracting public attention in the runup to the election, as they "came at virtually the same time as the contents of Clinton's personal email server were being publicized and scrutinized."
The ODIHR spokesperson added that OSCE cannot make any assessment of the election course before they observe the entire process.
ODIHR assesses the degree to which the voting meets the OSCE commitments and international standards of democratic elections. The Election Observation Mission will issue a report summarizing all their complaints soon after the election.
