Surveilled Trump Associate Carter Page Vows to Take Lawsuits Up to the Supreme Court

The Donald Trump campaign associate who was surveilled by the FBI said hell take lawsuits he plans to file against the U.S. government all the way up to the Supreme Court.

Carter Page, appearing on “Fox Business” on Thursday, told host Maria Bartiromo: “I think theres a lot more that needs to be done. Were going to take this right up to the Supreme Court, is our plan right now. Theres a lot more follow-up.”

A report from the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz said the FBI abused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and made at least 17 “significant errors or omissions” in the four applications made to surveil Page.

There were “many additional errors in the Woods Procedures,” or guidelines that FBI agents are supposed to follow when requesting FISA warrants.

The warrant applications also relied almost entirely on the salacious and uncorroborated dossier compiled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele, who said he and his colleagues feared Trump being elected president.

Page has been unsuccessful in several lawsuits, including one against the Department of Justice and another against Yahoo.
