Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page sued the Department of Justice, the FBI, and multiple government officials for $75 million for "unlawful spying" on Friday.
"Dr. Page was targeted because of his lawful association with the 2016 Presidential campaign of Donald Trump," the lawsuit reads.
The lawsuit alleges government investigators violated Page's "constitutional and other legal rights in connection with unlawful surveillance and investigation of him by the United States government" in Crossfire Hurricane.
Crossfire Hurricane was a counterintelligence investigation opened in July 2016 to investigate possible connections between Russia and the Trump campaign.
🔦 In December 2019, an inspector general of the Department of Justice found two of the four applications to wiretap Page from the FBI were "not valid."
