Carter Page sues over FISA warrants issued to spy on him and Trump campaign

 Washington Examiner:

Carter Page sues James Comey, Andrew McCabe, the FBI, and others for $75M

...

 “The more fundamental problem was that the FBI was so intent on obtaining a FISA warrant to enable it to spy on the Trump campaign that it did not fully and accurately disclose to the FISC the evidence it had obtained as to whether Dr. Page was a Russian agent. To persuade the FISC that there was probable cause to believe that Dr. Page was a Russian agent, the Defendants provided false or misleading information to the FISC,” Page’s lawyers told the court on Friday, adding, “The individual Defendants fabricated or intentionally disregarded critical evidence, and misled the FISC, in order to obtain the FISA warrants. This case is about holding accountable the entities and individuals who are responsible for the most egregious violation and abuse of the FISA statute since it was enacted over forty years ago.”

Page’s lawyers pointed to recent comments made by McCabe before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“I was shocked and disappointed at the errors and mistakes that the OIG found. To me, any material misrepresentation or error in a FISA application is unacceptable, period,” McCabe said earlier in November. “The FBI should be held to the standard of scrupulous accuracy that the [FISA] court demands.”

McCabe said that “we are all responsible for the work that went into that FISA.”

...

It turns out the whole Russian collusion hoax was a product of the Hillary Clinton campaign.  They hired others to produce the bogus Steele dossier.  Not only was there no evidence that Page was a Russian spy, but to the contrary, he had worked with the CIA.  They were just using him as a conduit into the Trump campaign.  There is more on the suit in the Federalist.
