Appeals Court Boots Carter Page’s “Terrorism” Lawsuit Against News Orgs For Linking Him To Russian Meddling

Bloomberg Law reports:

Former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page has struck out again with his lawsuit claiming he was a victim of terrorism in the form of media reports linking him to Russian efforts to influence the Trump campaign.

With just a week to go before release of a hotly anticipated Justice Department watchdog report on the FBI’s targeting of Page in a series of surveillance warrants, a federal appeals court made evident Monday that it saw little, if any, merit in Page’s civil suit.

Page claims he faced a series of death threats as a result of stories published by Yahoo News, the Huffington Post and Radio Free Europe in September 2016 about a federal investigation into whether he may have been the focus of Russian attempts to interfere in the presidential race.

Page was acting as his own lawyer.
