Page: 'No concern whatsoever' that FBI has dirt on me

Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page on Friday said he is not worried that federal investigators might find damaging information about him from the year he was under surveillance.

"I have absolutely no concern whatsoever," Page told Hill TV's Krystal Ball on "Rising."
 
Page did not rule out taking legal action against the federal government. When asked by co-host Buck Sexton if he would consider a civil rights claim against the U.S., Page said, "We'll see."
 
"My big battle with [the Department of Justice] DOJ right now is getting them to repair the false pleadings that they've done in the Southern District of New York in this case that I have, where I was just asking for $1 of damages," he said.
 
Page added that the federal government has not admitted any wrongdoing against him.
 
"Not only have they not admitted it, they've continued the abusive process, the false pleadings that they did ... You know, as John is alluding to in this article on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, they're doing the same thing in the Southern District of New York," he said, referring to a report from The Hill's John Solomon that the FBI rushed to find information from informants to accelerate the Russia probe.
 
Page noted that he's already suing the Broadcasting Board of Governors and a subsidiary of Verizon, saying each was "involved in the defamation of myself prior to the 2016 election."
 
Trump's former campaign adviser has been at the center of a federal probe into Russia's election meddling in 2016 due to his ties to the country and a trip to Moscow in July 2016. 
 
The FBI last year obtained a warrant to surveil Page under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) as apart of the agency's Russia probe.
 
Trump's campaign and Page have denied the allegations of improper communications with Russia.
