I need help drafting a cause of action with legal basis for a pro se case I have been granted by the US District Court of DC.

I agree with Mr. Isquith that this blog is not the appropriate place to solicit or contract for legal work. Lawyers volunteer their time here to answer general legal questions. You can use the Find a Lawyer button to locate a lawyer. But, the good news is that the work you need is now permitted in DC. Previously, lawyers needed to enter an appearance in a legal case in order to assist a client during a litigation. DC fairly recently changed the rules to permit lawyers to offer limited representation. You are seeking a DC litigation lawyer who is willing to be retained for the limited purpose of drafting a valid Complaint. That isn't that big of an assignment, and the retainer can be much cheaper, because the lawyer doesn't need to include the cost of withdrawing if you are unable to maintain payments. The lawyer is permitted to limit the retainer to the service you wish to purchase: drafting a cause of action. Good luck to you.
Reading an answer on the Internet does not create an attorney-client relationship. You are represented by me when we have both signed a retainer agreement (on paper or electronically) and some money has changed hands. Usually, you will have been asked specific questions about your situation and all potential conflicts of interest will have been resolved. Until then, you have no more right to rely on this answer than if you read it in a novel or on LegalZoom.
A "letter" is not a cause of action. And the fact that you have the authority to file a case does not mean you have a valid cause of action. The fact that an organization or person lied about you does not, in and of itself create a cause of action.
You should probably seek out a lawyer who can practice in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia
