Trump Private Lawyer Sues Buzzfeed Over Russian Dossier

Trump Private Lawyer Sues Buzzfeed Over Russian Dossier”

While Fusion GPS has not publicly responded to the lawsuit, a transcript of Glenn Simpson's testimony [transcript, PDF] before the Senate Judiciary Committee [official website] in August 2017 was released by Senator Diane Feinstein Monday, in which Simpson indicated that a member of the Trump campaign provided information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation that verified some of the claims contained in the dossier.

"Although no amount of money can ever remedy the damage that has been sustained by Mr. Cohen, we will be seeking maximum damages for the lies contained in the so-called dossier", David Schwartz, the lawyer representing Cohen, said in a statement. After he won the election, Fusion GPS allowed the dossier to fall into BuzzFeed's hands, the suit says.

Tucker Carlson faced off with BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith tonight and charged that "partisanship played a role" in BuzzFeed's decision to run the infamous dossier.

That included a claim that Cohen had travelled to Prague for secret meetings with a Russian official. Most other USA news organizations declined to publish the document because many of its claims - some of them salacious - haven't been substantiated.

"If Cohen ends up litigating the truthfulness of information in the dossier, it could be embarrassing for him and for the president, since he opens a can of worms that defense lawyers can pick at to make Cohen's past and his involvement with the president very uncomfortable", he said. "My name was included only because of my proximity to the president", Cohen revealed in an interview with Bloomberg. Its interest to the public is obvious.

BuzzFeed spokesman Matt Mittenthal defended the publication of the dossier and added, "we look forward to defending our First Amendment rights in court".

Trump's personal lawyer claims Russian Federation dossier... "Why waste time talking about something that's not legitimate", he said.

At one point, Trump said any collusion was "really with the Democrats and the Russians, far more than it is with the Republicans and the Russians", though he did not elaborate.

Fusion GPS hired a former British spy, Christopher Steele, to compile the dossier.

The document has become a focus of Republican-led investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

The 35-page report drew on information from Russian contacts and concluded that Russia had been "cultivating, supporting and assisting" Trump for at least five years and fed his campaign "valuable intelligence" about Clinton.

Papadopoulos has pleaded guilty to a charge of lying to the FBI and is cooperating with Mueller's investigation.
