Trump Private Lawyer Sues Buzzfeed Over Russian Dossier

"Just filed a defamation action against for publishing the lie filled document on and me!"

"A year of government inquiries and blockbuster journalism has made clear that the dossier is unquestionably real news", Smith wrote, arguing that putting forth the unverified document in full gave Americans a far better understanding of the Russian Federation probe and the actions of elected officials.

Michael Cohen, longtime attorney for President Donald Trump, filed two defamation lawsuits Tuesday evening against Fusion GPS, the research firm that compiled the infamous Russian Federation dossier, and BuzzFeed, which published it.

The filings were also made against Fusion GPS, the political research firm that compiled the dossier, and Buzzfeed one day before the statute of limitations would have expired. "It was presented to two successive presidents, and has been described in detail by news outlets around the world", BuzzFeed News spokesperson Matt Mittenthal said in a statement.

He argued the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election has become the "central challenge to Mr Trump's presidency" and that publishing the dossier a year ago was in the "public interest".

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.

"The innuendo and misinformation circulating about the transcript are part of a deeply troubling effort to undermine the investigation into potential collusion and obstruction of justice", Feinstein said in a statement.

The 14-day RSI is now sitting at 53.51, the 7-day is at 47.85, and the 3-day is spotted at 24.93 for Dajin Resources Corp (DJIFF). A value of 50-75 would signal a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would indicate an extremely strong trend.

Asked about special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into meddling in the 2016 election, Trump insisted there was "no collusion", invoking Clinton's July 2016 interview with the FBI, calling it "a very serious breach".

Senate Dianne Feinstein on Tuesday released the 312-page transcript of Simpson's appearance, saying she needed to combat "innuendo and misinformation" being spread about the interview.

Cohen said he told the panels that he never engaged with, was paid by, or communicated with anyone representing the Russian government, or anyone else, about hacking or interfering with the US election, hacking the Democratic Party, or about creating fake news stories to assist the Trump campaign or to damage the Hillary Clinton campaign. "Consistent with the intended objective of "oppo research" to publicly discredit its target, Steele's briefings were created to generate interest in the Dossier and secure its eventual public dissemination".

Of particular interest to the House committee are text messages sent between the FBI agent who initially led the investigation into Trump, Peter Strzok, and FBI lawyer Lisa Page. He specifically denied one of the best-known allegations against him - that he secretly met in Prague with a Russian official last summer. Fusion was first commissioned to investigate Trump in 2016 by the Washington Free Beacon newspaper, which has said that none of the information it received from the firm was included in the dossier.

However, Buzzfeed remains strong in battling with Cohen in court in regards to the Russian dossier.

A new report by Senate Democrats, being published later today and previewed here by the New York Times, says Russian interference in the 2016 election fits into a pattern of meddling over almost two decades. The news organization also faces a lawsuit by Aleksej Gubarev, a Russian technology executive named in the dossier.
