Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page says he is a victim of “multiple violations” and is now seeking compensation from those who violate;ated his Constitutional and other legal rights.
From The Gregg Jarrett:
Page filed a whopping 8‑count lawsuit against the Department of Justice and the FBI on Friday, seeking no less than $75 million in damages for being “unlawfully surveilled” during the 2017 Russia hoax investigation.
The lawsuit, filed in the D.C. District Court, seeks compensation for “multiple violations” of Page’s “Constitutional and other legal rights in connection with unlawful surveillance and investigation of him by the United States government.”
The 59-page complaint lists defendants including FBI Director James Comey, Assistant Director Andrew McCabe, and the team of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Also included are former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who earlier this year pleaded guilty to falsifying an email to hide Page’s past service as a source to the CIA, and FBI Agents Joe Pientka, Stephen Somma and Brian Auten, The Federalist reports. Other defendants were identified as John Doe 1–10 and Jane Doe 1–10.
Page, a former Moscow-based investment banker, was unknowingly wiretapped by the FBI for a year, suspected to be a Russian agent. The suspicions were based on allegations in the famous Russia hoax dossier. After an investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, there was no evidence establishing “that Page coordinated with the Russian government in its efforts to interfere with the 2016 presidential election.”
