Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page told Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Monday that he is suing the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Perkins Coie – the law firm used by the DNC and the Clinton campaign to funnel money to Fusion GPS.

Fusion, in turn, launched an expansive opposition research effort against Trump – hiring Nellie Ohr, the wife of a (formerly) high-ranking Department of Justice official, along with ex-MI6 spy Christopher Steele, who assemled the “Steele dossier” – which utilized Kremlin sources.

The dossier was then used by the FBI to obtain a FISA surveillance warrant to spy on Page, while the agency bolstered the warrant application with MSM news articles written by reporters who were fed information by Steele, in what Sean Hannity described as a “fraud” on “four FISA judges.” Interestingly, an un-recused Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein – who is overseeing the Russia investigation – signed off on Page’s FISA application and subsequent renewals.

Of note, both Rosenstein and Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson have suddenly refused to speak to Congressional investigators, with Rosenstein bailing on scheduled testimony last week and Simpson’s lawyer announcing his client plans to invoke his fifth amendment right not to incriminate himself.

Rosenstein’s decision not to testify may be due in part to statements made by former FBI top lawyer James Baker, who told Congressional investigators in early October that Rosenstein wasn’t joking about secretly recording President Trump right around the time former FBI Director James Comey was fired, then trying to impeach Trump by invoking the 25th amendment with the recordings.

“As far as Baker was concerned, this was a real plan being discussed,” reports The Hill’s John Solomon, citing a confidential source.

Baker meets with Perkins Coie

In September 2016, Baker – then the FBI’s top lawyer, met with Perkins Coie at a meeting during which he received “documents and a thumb drive” related to the Russia case, according to Solomon.

Baker was interviewed by lawmakers behind closed doors on Wednesday. Sources declined to divulge much about his testimony, other than to say it confirmed other evidence about the contact between the Perkins Coie law firm and the FBI.

The sources said Baker identified lawyer Michael Sussman, a former DOJ lawyer, as the Perkins Coie attorney who reached out to him and said the firm gave him documents and a thumb drive related to Russian interference in the election, hacking and possible Trump connections. -The Hill

Of the lawsuit, Page said: “I’m just trying to get some justice in terms of getting some disclosure.”
