Some docs at the link; I think we've seen them all as part of the Risen case.A former U.S. intelligence contractor tells Circa he walked away with more than 600 million classified documents on 47 hard drives from the National Security Agency and the CIA, a haul potentially larger than Edward Snowden's now infamous breach.
And now he is suing former FBI Director James Comey and other government figures, alleging the bureau has covered up evidence he provided them showing widespread spying on Americans that violated civil liberties.

The suit, filed late Monday night by Dennis Montgomery, was assigned to the same federal judge who has already ruled that some of the NSA's collection of data on Americans violates the U.S. Constitution’s Fourth Amendment, setting up an intriguing legal proceeding in the nation’s capital this summer.

“This domestic surveillance was all being done on computers supplied by the FBI," Montgomery told Circa in an interview. "So these supercomputers, which are FBI computers, the CIA is using them to do domestic surveillance."

"They're doing this domestic surveillance on Americans, running a project on U.S. soil," Montgomery alleged. He did not disclose the classified name of the project but said he revealed all aspects of the project during his interview with the FBI.
"Can you imagine what someone can do with the information they were collecting on Americans, can you imagine that kind of power."

At 10:13 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, Fox News host Sean Hannity spoke with Circa’s John Solomon and Sara Carter, who reported that former CIA and NSA contractor Dennis Montgomery filed a lawsuit against former FBI Director James Comey for allegedly jettisoning an investigation of his report of massive government surveillance of private citizens made two years ago.
Solomon and Carter reported that they interviewed Montgomery in person and that he claimed that the personal information of up to 20 million Americans was collected at some point by government agencies without a warrant.

The birth certificate issue was not raised by Hannity or his guests.
(Although this suit will suffer the same fate as Klayman's other attention-getting attempts, I felt it deserved its own thread.)
