The Supreme Court declined to hear a defamation suit brought by former Trump campaign official Carter Page against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and other individuals connected to the Steele dossier.

The Hill reports:

Page had appealed to the Supreme Court after his lawsuit was dismissed in the lower courts on procedural grounds.

The former 2016 Trump campaign foreign policy adviser filed suit in January 2020 against the DNC and law firm Perkins Coie in relation to a dossier compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele.

The creation of the dossier was set in motion by Perkins Coie through the research firm Fusion GPS. The document, which included unverified claims about former President Trump and his associates’ links to Russia, played a role in the U.S. obtaining a warrant to surveil Page.

In December 2019, the Justice Department’s inspector general released a report detailing multiple inaccuracies and omissions in the surveillance warrant applications targeting Page that were submitted to the court associated with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

In his legal filing Page alleged that the dossier “mobilized the news media against Dr. Page, damaging his reputation, and effectively destroying his once-private life.”

  1. I have been doing this job for like a few weeks and my KJH last weekly payment was exactly

    𝙁𝙞𝙣𝙙 𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙝𝙤𝙬 𝙃𝙀𝙍𝙀…

  2. SCOTUS is afraid to wake into political waters where some people were disgusting in their behavior as high priced lawyers. Kevin Kleinsmith should be sued into oblivion by Page. It was his evidence manipulation that put Page out there. Durham has done most of that work.

  3. It amazes me that the Clinton campaign and DNC are able to create a false document that leads to “hamstring a president” leading to an impeachment and contributing to his being voted out of office, and everyone gets off “scot free”. Our country is in jeopardy.
