Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page said Monday that he has filed a defamation lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) over a dossier that alleges ties between Page and Russia.

Page said on Fox News's "Hannity" that his lawsuit "goes beyond any damages or any financial aspects."

"There have been so many lies, as you’re alluding to, and you look at the damage it did to our democratic systems and our institutions of government back in 2016. And I’m just trying to get some justice," he said.

Page's lawsuit is against both the DNC and its law firm, Perkins Coie, as well as a few of the firm's partners, he said on "Hannity."

The lawsuit concerns a controversial dossier compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele.

That dossier alleges ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, though much of the information has not been verified and has been dismissed by Trump and Republicans. 

Page's name appears multiple times in the dossier, which alleges that Page communicated with Russians during the 2016 campaign.
