'Now is his opportunity to get accountability and justice,' attorney Tony Parlatore said

Carter Page, a former Trump aide whom the FBI surveilled during the Russia probe, has filed a $75 million lawsuit against the bureau, Justice Department and former FBI Director James Comey.

The lawsuit filed Friday accuses the FBI, DOJ and Comey of violating Page's constitutional "and other legal rights in connection with unlawful surveillance and investigation of him by the United States Government."

"This case is about holding accountable the entities and individuals who are responsible for the most egregious violation and abuse of the [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] FISA statute since it was enacted over forty years ago," the complaint states.

The FBI had relied on information from former English spy Christopher Steele's since-debunked dossier in an effort to obtain FISA warrants against Page, whom Steele alleged had ties to a Russian influence campaign during the 2016 presidential election.

The lawsuit cites four requests the FBI filed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in an effort to obtain more information on Page as part of its "Crossfire Hurricane" investigation. A 2019 Justice Department inspector general report found that the FBI made a number of significant errors in its applications.

Niether the FBI nor DOJ immediately responded to inquiries from Fox News.

"The facts of this case ... have been relatively well-briefed," attorney Tim Parlatore, who is representing Page, told Fox News on Saturday.

"Between the Horowitz report and various congressional [investigations] on this subject, there are no bombshell revelations in this lawsuit other than Page is seeking to be made whole from the individuals who have completely destroyed his life."

The lawsuit opens with November testimony from former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who said during a November hearing before the Senate Judiciary Commitee that "any material misrepresentation or error in a FISA application is unacceptable," and admitted that the FBI is "responsible for the work that went into that FISA."
