Page was a central figure in former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election. Mueller did not find any wrongdoing by Page and was unable to substantiate the anti-Trump dossier’s claims about him.

Last year, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz issued a long-awaited report finding that the FBI made repeated errors and misrepresentations before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) as the FBI sought to monitor Page in 2016 and 2017.

“Although my name was cleared by the Horowitz report, I don’t know if I will ever get my reputation back,” Page said. “The multiple parties involved in the Russia collusion hoax — including the DNC [Democratic National Committee], the mainstream media, FBI and Justice Department — must be held accountable.”

He added: “I still have many questions about that investigation. If you value your privacy, reputation and right to political expression, you should, too.”

Horowitz’s report also confirmed that the FISA applications to monitor Page relied heavily on the now-infamous Trump dossier, authored by ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, commissioned by opposition research firm Fusion GPS, and funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign through law firm Perkins Coie.

Last month, the FISC also released a newly declassified summary of a Justice Department assessment revealing at least two of the FBI’s surveillance applications to monitor Page lacked probable cause.
