Trump's lawyer sues BuzzFeed for publishing Russia dossier

Fusion GPS Trump's lawyer sues BuzzFeed for publishing Russia dossier
Kristine Garrett | 13 January, 2018, 16:51

Fusion GPS' efforts researching Trump were first funded by his Republican foes during the primary campaign. 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.

Cohen also tweeted, "Enough is enough of the #fake #RussianDossier". Most ot08her USA news organizations declined to publish the document because many of its claims - some of them salacious - haven't been substantiated. "My name was included only because of my proximity to the president".

But in the suit filed in New York State court, Cohen claims, "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".

He provided the complaint and a confirmation email from the court system that he had filed the suit to Bloomberg News, but it could not immediately be independently confirmed that the suit had been filed. Cohen said a simple fact-check could have prevented the publication of defamatory claims that he colluded with Russian Federation.

"The dossier is, and continues to be, the subject of active investigations by Congress and intelligence agencies", a BuzzFeed spokesperson said. Its interest to the public is obvious.

A separate lawsuit filed at the federal level in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of NY against Fusion GPS seeks $100 million in damages, makes similar allegations regarding the veracity of the document, but states that the firm was reckless in sharing its contents with the media. The suit did not immediately appear in the electronic court docket.

Josh Levy, a lawyer for Fusion, declined to comment Wednesday morning. They characterized it as an attempt to discredit a crucial source in the investigations by Congress and the special counsel, Robert Mueller, and distract from the central question: whether the Trump campaign knowingly sought aid from Russian Federation.

Trump this week called the probe a "phony cloud over this administration", denying any collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation.

He said that he and Trump "don't talk about" the Russian Federation investigations. "Nobody here talks about her", the White House counselor told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "Cuomo Prime Time". His legal team is preparing for a potential interview with the special counsel and is in preliminary discussions with Mueller's office about the parameters of such a discussion, a person familiar with the matter said Tuesday.

"We can argue about what's prudent and what's not, but it's not a fabrication", he said.

Cohen, who is named in the dossier, said BuzzFeed and several of its staffers defamed him by publishing the 35-page document, which contained a mix of truths, falsehoods and unverified rumors about interactions between people close to Trump and Russian figures.

Simpson told investigators he first spoke with Steele about conducting opposition research into Trump in May or June of 2016. "Somebody's already been killed as a result of the publication of this dossier and no harm should come to anybody related to this honest work". BuzzFeed, Politico, ABC, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal (sub. req.) also have stories.

Since then, congressional probes have revealed that FBI officials involved in the investigation at the time had also expressed personal enmity for Trump and discussed an "insurance plan" in the case of Trump's election.
