The FBI Spied on Carter Page. Now He’s Suing Them For $75 Million.
There isn’t much a private citizen can do when their own government works against them, but former Trump campaign aide Carter Page is going to try. Page is attempting to get his life back after the FBI spied on him as part of its baseless investigation into alleged collusion between Russia and Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Page filed a lawsuit on Friday against the Justice Department, FBI, and several named individuals who helped obtain the FISA warrants to spy on Page that were based on unverified, salacious allegations in a dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.
Page alleges in his lawsuit that FBI investigators violated “his Constitutional and other legal rights in connection with unlawful surveillance and investigation of him by the United States Government” and that he “was targeted because of his lawful association with the 2016 Presidential campaign of Donald Trump.”
Page is suing numerous individuals associated with the DOJ’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation into alleged Russian collusion, including ex-FBI director James Comey, ex-FBI agents Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Kevin Clinesmith, who pleaded guilty to falsifying evidence against Page.
