Carter Page files a lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee over the Russian dossier

January 30, 2020

  Last week it was reported that the Department of Justice admitted two of the FISA warrants used to spy on Trump aide Carter Page were invalid and never should have been issued because there was no probable cause to continue spying on him.

  Now it looks as if Carter Page is going to start fighting back, it is being reported here that he has filed a lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee and others entities which funded the discredited Russian dossier which was used as justification for the FISA warrants. Here is more:

Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page filed a lawsuit Thursday in federal court against the Democratic National Committee, law firm Perkins Coie and its partners tied to the funding of the unverified dossier that served as the basis for highly controversial surveillance warrants against him.

The suit was filed in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of Illinois’ Eastern Division Thursday morning, and was described by his attorneys as the “first of multiple actions in the wake of historic” Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuse.

“This is a first step to ensure that the full extent of the FISA abuse that has occurred during the last few years is exposed and remedied,” attorney John Pierce said Thursday. “Defendants and those they worked with inside the federal government did not and will not succeed in making America a surveillance state.”

He added: “This is only the first salvo. We will follow the evidence wherever it leads, no matter how high. … The rule of law will prevail.”

  Hillary Clinton also helped to fund the dossier but there is no mention of her in the article linked above, one has to believe Carter Page is too smart to include her in the lawsuit…if you know what I mean.

  Despite James Comey and others in the FBI claiming the IG report vindicated the agency and the individuals involved we now know this is certainly not the case and it is good to see somebody is going to start fighting back.

    Yep… leave Hillary out of it… meanwhile isn’t someone trying to serve her? The one presidential candidate she called a Russian agent…. The secret service won’t let the server of the suit near her.

      Yes, Tulsi Gabbard if I am not mistaken. You would think she had been around long enough to know how dangerous it is to go after Hillary…
