The former Trump campaign advisor dropped a huge lawsuit and it names virtually all the Obama administration folks involved whom we have come to know — James Comey, Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe and others — over his treatment by them. The complaint “seeks relief herein for Defendants’ multiple violations of his Constitutional and other legal rights in connection with unlawful surveillance and investigation of him by the United States Government” and asks for no less than $75 million, according to the Washington Examiner.
Among his lawyers, Leslie McAdoo Gordon.
Now while the government action seems to be taking forever, if it ever comes, this action by Page could force the people involved to finally testify openly and come across under oath for what they did while the government was illegally obtaining FISA warrants against him. They might also be able to point to the the names not specifically included who deserve to be included, the folks behind these guys.
How much is a man’s reputation worth? The investigation smeared his name, while not finding anything to support any connection to the Russians, indeed having evidence to suggest the opposite. But despite that, at least one person lied in order to get the FISA warrant against Page and falsely represented an email to help get that warrant. That’s the one plea in the case that the DOJ has managed to get so far, Kevin Clinesmith, who falsely changed a CIA email that said Page was a source for them to that he wasn’t a source.
