'Enough is Enough': Trump Lawyer Sues BuzzFeed, Fusion GPS Over Trump Dossier

'Enough is Enough': Trump Lawyer Sues BuzzFeed, Fusion GPS Over Trump Dossier”

The dossier, which alleged collusion between Trump staff including Cohen and Russian agents, was compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.

The lawyer, Michael Cohen, filed the lawsuit in a NY state court Tuesday, almost a year after BuzzFeed published the dossier commissioned by political opposition research firm Fusion GPS. After he won the election, Fusion GPS allowed the dossier to fall into BuzzFeed's hands, the suit says.

That included a claim that Cohen had traveled to Prague for secret meetings with a Russian official.

Fusion GPS was originally hired to do research during the 2016 Republican primary campaign for a still unknown Republican donor who wanted to defeat Trump.

In an interview with The Daily Caller on Monday, prior to filing the lawsuits, Cohen reflected on the dossier upon its one-year anniversary.

We didn't discount the arguments against publishing salacious allegations - which reporters do all the time in covering lawsuits, internal investigations or reports like Mr. Steele's. It also contradicts Cohen's claim that he became "collateral damage in a USA political operation".

The actions by BuzzFeed and Fusion GPS "are so malicious, despicable and reckless, one can only presume that their motives were intentional", he told CNN.

"Without the dossier, Americans would have found it hard to understand the actions of their elected representatives and government officials", Smith wrote.

Citing the Republican attempt to discredit the dossier, Simpson has called for the release of multiple closed-door interviews he has done as part of congressional Russian Federation investigations, including his interview with Judiciary.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) said Wednesday that new revelations about the infamous Trump dossier raise more questions about anti-Trump bias in the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation.

We strongly believed that publishing the disputed document whose existence we and others were reporting was in the public interest. "This is not the first time Trump's lawyer has attacked the free press, and we look forward to defending our First Amendment rights in court", BuzzFeed said. Any misstep might give his supporters more ammunition to label news outlets as biased. And Republicans have focused heavily on the scandalous aspects of the Steele dossier because they are outrageous and unverified, as part of a strategy to impeach the document as a way to impeach the case that Trump world might have conspired with the Russian interference campaign.

Several GOP-led committees are now investigating whether the dossier formed the basis for the FBI's initial investigations. The company and Smith are defendants in another high-stakes lawsuit in Florida, where a Russian tech company leader says the news organization defamed him and his companies by linking them to the hack of the Democratic National Committee.

"The Supreme Court has made it clear that when it comes to media-related publications on public figures, they are generally immune from defamation lawsuits unless they actually acted with malice".
