Carter Page sues FBI, DOJ for $75M Over Russia Hoax Unlawful Surveillance

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.”
