President Trump's Lawyer Sues BuzzFeed, Fusion GPS Over Russia Dossier

President Trump's Lawyer Sues BuzzFeed, Fusion GPS Over Russia Dossier

A few weeks later, Buzzfeed chose to go ahead and publish it, raising questions about ethics as the accusations listed in the dossier remained unsubstantiated. Most other US news organizations declined to publish the document because many of its claims - some of them salacious - haven't been substantiated.

As I say, I don't have really any additional information beyond this except that - I mean, its probably in here somewhere actually, but it's well known in intelligence circles that the Russians have cameras in all the luxury hotel rooms and there are memoirs written about this by former Russian intelligence agents I could quote you. "My name was included only because of my proximity to the president", Cohen revealed in an interview with Bloomberg.

"Even though defendant BuzzFeed expressly acknowledged the unverified (and potentially unverifiable) nature of the dossier's allegations, defendant BuzzFeed published the un-redacted dossier and the article anyway - without attempting to determine the veracity of these reports with plaintiff himself", Cohen wrote in the lawsuit.

Simpson said after Steele produced that first report on June 20, 2016, he was concerned that what he found represented a national security threat and felt obligated to tell someone in government.

It is pertinent to mention several important details from the dossier have since been corroborated independently.

"The dossier is, and continues to be, the subject of active investigations by Congress and intelligence agencies".

"Its interest to the public is obvious".

Among the nuggets which came from the recently-released Senate Judiciary Committee interview of the head of research firm Fusion GPS is this: the firm was apparently baffled by President Donald Trump's finances.

"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".

Fusion's lawyer, Joshua Levy, said he had not seen the suit and that he had "not received a letter from counsel on anything". John McCain, R-Ariz., who gave it to then-FBI Director James Comey.

Citing multiple sources, Sara Carter wrote on her website that the Federal Bureau of Investigation used the dossier, alongside other evidence, to obtain a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, to spy on members of Trump's team. "Nobody here talks about her", the White House counselor told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "Cuomo Prime Time".

Mueller has so far secured two guilty pleas and two indictments in the investigation.

Much of the dossier's content, once entirely dismissed by detractors, have been corroborated: former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's hidden payments from Ukranian interests, Trump's failed business interests in Russia and, of course, the now-infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting between the president's son, son-in-law, campaign chairman and a ragtag crew of Russians and their allies. Fusion GPS' efforts researching Trump were first funded by his Republican foes during the primary campaign.

Democrats have charged that the FBI investigations are meant to be a distraction from separate investigations into the Russian meddling and whether Trump's campaign was involved.

While Simpson claimed that Steele acted out of alarm and not out of political motivation, that argument was undermined by other parts of Simpson's own testimony that showed that Steele was "concerned" about the reopening of the Clinton email investigation, and a news story that said there was no connection between Trump and Russian Federation.
