Trump Private Lawyer Sues Buzzfeed Over Russian Dossier

Later in the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump's opponent Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee paid Fusion GPS through a law firm for some of the research that resulted in the dossier.

The statement added Cohen will seek "maximum damages" against the defendants.

Michael Cohen also filed a second lawsuit against Washington research firm Fusion GPS, the company that hired former spy Christopher Steele to investigate Mr Trump's business dealings with Russian Federation.

He faulted the company for recklessly distributing the dossier and allowing it to "fall into the hands of media devoted to breaking news on the hottest subject of the day: the Trump candidacy".

Cohen, however, faces an "uphill battle" in court, Seth Berenzweig, founding and managing partner of law firm Berenzweig Leonard, told FOX Business. Buzzfeed published the dossier in its entirety almost a year ago, which it said it obtained from a source it didn't identify.

In a tweet fired off late Tuesday, Cohen proclaimed that "enough is enough" and that he just "filed a defamation action against" BuzzFeed for publishing the "lie filled document" on Trump and himself. As the Russian Federation probe unfolded, Smith ascertained that the dossier legitimacy became further evidenced, writing, "A year of government inquiries and blockbuster journalism has made clear that the dossier is unquestionably real news". It was presented to two successive presidents, and has been described in detail by news outlets around the world. "We strongly believed that publishing the disputed document whose existence we and others were reporting was in the public interest".

A spokesperson for BuzzFeed said in a statement to CNN, "This is not the first time Trump's personal lawyer has attacked the free press, and we look forward to defending our First Amendment rights in court".

Predictions for Every NFL Divisional Playoff Game
Two turnovers, a pair of sacks, six tackles for loss and seven quarterback hurries is plenty of disruption to win a messy game. The Wentz-less Birds will have a tough task this Saturday, as the Falcons are one of the hottest teams around the league.

Last week another attorney working for Trump personally, Charles Harder, sent a cease and desist letter to the publisher and author of the new book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", seeking to stop further distribution.

Buzzfeed News broke ranks and published the 35-page dossier days later. Feinstein's remarks in the transcript clearly state an FBI investigation into the Trump campaign's connections with Russian Federation was already underway when Steele presented his findings, debunking a commonly held Trump campaign theory that the dossier was part of a calculated attack on Trump's credibility.

"Without the dossier, Americans would have found it hard to understand the actions of their elected representatives and government officials", Smith wrote. Steele is reported to have provided the dossier to the FBI in 2016, and some Republicans allege that the document prompted the agency to open a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign.

He said that seems much more likely than the report that a former Trump campaign adviser's drunken boasts - not the dossier - led to the investigation.

Smith made this argument in the op-ed: "I haven't had a single person approach me to say, 'I wish I hadn't read the dossier, and wish I had less insight into the forces at play in America.' Do you feel that way?" 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.

Fusion GPS similarly faces several lawsuits related to its work on the dossier.
