The former neurosurgeon first claimed to have his own intelligence sources last month, when he claimed that Russian President Vladimir Putin had gotten to know Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas and Ali Khamenei, who is the supreme leader of Iran, during their university days.
Carson said at the time that he had received this little-known bit of information from unidentified “advisors,” some of whom were in the CIA.
