Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Sues Buzzfeed for Publishing Steele Dossier

Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Sues Buzzfeed for Publishing Steele Dossier

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.

Sen Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a former long-time chairman of the Judiciary panel, called Feinstein's unusual move "improper" but said unequivocally that what the senator did was not illegal.

Simpson had requested that his 312-page testimony be released. "And that concerns me", Feinstein said. "The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public".

Steele's work was commissioned by Fusion GPS, on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Simpson would not name the source.

Mr Steele - who founded and runs Orbis Business Intelligence in London - is said to have passed on his findings to both USA and United Kingdom intelligence in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election. These are things that have been explored, but a lot of these things have never been confirmed.

Feinstein said Americans deserve to see what Simpson said.

BuzzFeed powers that be made the decision to publish the dossier, which the Trump camp and conservative pundits characterized as the too familiar taunt, "Fake News".

In a statement to Bloomberg, BuzzFeed claims to have exercised its right to publish the dossier: "Its interest to the public is obvious", BuzzFeed spokesman Matt Mittenthal said.

The dossier is a compilation of memos written by Steele during the 2016 campaign that contained allegations of connections between Trump and Russian Federation, including that Trump had been compromised by the Kremlin.

"I don't want to get into what the President said.I don't intend to have a discussion with the president", Grassley said emphatically.

He continued, "he thought from his perspective there was ... a security issue about whether a presidential candidate was being blackmailed".

Meanwhile, according to Cohen, the allegations about his ties to Russian Federation are not only false, but also hurt his career, which is ironic, given that he works for the president of the United States. However, in January 2017 that former KGB spy chief Oleg Erovinkin, a key source behind the dossier, was discovered dead in the back seat of his vehicle in Moscow. "These muckraking statements are thus without any basis in truth and have only served to harm Plaintiff's reputation as an attorney and have damaged Plaintiff by linking him to the Trump campaign's alleged unlawful acts of meddling with the presidential election".

He also indicated that Fusion GPS didn't manage to acquire Trump's tax documents.

The documents were described as core records concerning the controversial anti-Trump dossier and its handling by the Federal Bureau of Investigation - including witness interview summaries for confidential sources or informants. "We didn't have access to his tax returns".

But he steadfastly refused to comment on the portion of the President's tough tweet that said "Republicans should finally take control!" - with the senator rejecting a reporter's attempt to show him the tweet.

"They were not profitable entities", he said. "I would just like you to acknowledge that partisanship played a role".

Simpson also said he had no "factual reason to believe" the meeting at Trump Tower between a Russian lawyer and Donald Trump Jr. was part of the Kremlin's effort to reach out to the Trump campaign. You guys get approached by the Russians, you don't say anything.
