Carter Page is filing a lawsuit against the DNC over the unverified dossier that launched the Mueller report. The defamation suit was filed on Thursday morning in Illinois and also named law firm Perkins Coie and its partners.

Last week, a federal court confirmed the FISA warrants that allowed Obama era FBI officials to spy on Page were invalid. His lawsuit claimed the DNC, along with its partners, knowingly spread false and unverified information about him to both the FBI and the DOJ through the Steele dossier.

“The defendants’ wrongful actions convinced many Americans that Dr. Page is a traitor to the United States, and as a result he has received — and continues to receive — multiple death threats,” the lawsuit stated. “In short, the defendants’ actions have not only damaged the plaintiffs’ reputations and financial prospects, they have even caused Dr. Page to reasonably fear for his safety.”

This followed the recent IG report, which outlined how the FBI mishandled the situation and led to dozens of corrective actions within the agency.

“We are deeply concerned that so many basic and fundamental errors were made by three separate handpicked investigative teams on one of the most sensitive FBI investigations,” stated the Department of Justice Inspector General. “The circumstances reflect the failure, as we outlined in the report, not just by those who prepared the applications, but also by the managers and supervisors in the crossfire hurricane chain of command, including FBI senior officials who were briefed as the investigation progressed.”

Rep. Gabbard files defamation lawsuit against Hillary Clinton, following ‘Russian asset’ comment

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is taking action against attacks from Hillary Clinton by filing a $50 million defamation lawsuit against the former secretary of state. The 2020 hopeful filed the suit on Wednesday in response to Clinton’s prior accusation that Gabbard was a “Russian asset.”

“I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on someone that’s currently in the Democratic primary. They’re grooming her to be the third party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians, they have a bunch of sights and bots, and other ways of supporting her so far.”

On Thursday, Gabbard said Clinton tried to paint her as a “traitor” to the U.S., which the lawmaker refuted by touting her 17 years of military service. She added if Clinton had the power to make this attack against her, she has the ability to turn on anybody.

Although Clinton did not explicitly name Gabbard in her comments, she said she believes the ambushes are rooted in her outspoken opposition to Clinton’s foreign policy and her endorsement of Sen. Bernie Sanders in 2016.

The representative recently took another stand against Clinton, in defense of Sanders, after the former secretary of state said “nobody” likes or wants to work with the Vermont senator.

“They said, ‘Clinton will never forget.’ That she and her rich, powerful friends, her allies in politics and the media will make sure that you are destroyed. Well, there have been countless hit pieces and smears against me from day one of this campaign. They’ve tried to destroy my reputation and my lifetime of service because I stood up to them.”

Gabbard’s defense team alleged this is the reason Clinton has gone after the 2020 hopeful. They called her “cutthroat” for lobbing so-called “false assertions” at the lawmaker to derail her presidential campaign.

Gabbard said the lawsuit was necessary to keep the former senator and other Democrat elites “accountable” for their actions.

“If you stand up to Hillary and the party power brokers…they will destroy you and discredit your message,” said Gabbard. “But here is the truth: They will not intimidate us, they will not silence us.”
