US President Donald Trump's personal attorney filed two lawsuits Tuesday claiming damages from the publication a year ago of a private investigation dossier that made unverified allegations of collusion between Trump's campaign for president and the Kremlin.
But Mr Simpson's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in August contradicted those claims.
Cohen is mentioned in the dossier as having suspicious ties to Russian figures.
"The dossier is, and continues to be, the subject of active investigations by Congress and intelligence agencies", BuzzFeed spokeswoman Katie Rayford told Politico in a statement.
News reported that Cohen told the committees that his reputation had been damaged by the "entirely and totally false" accusations in the "lie-filled dossier" about the Trump campaign, which was prepared by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent, for Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm.
"It was presented to two successive presidents, and has been described in detail by news outlets around the world".
"They had other intelligence about this matter from an internal Trump campaign source and. they believed Chris' information might be credible", Simpson testified.
Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen have denied all allegations of inappropriate contact with the Russian government. "Its interest to the public is obvious", BuzzFeed spokesman Matt Mittenthal said via Twitter. The final dossier was reportedly circulated in Washington for months before Buzzfeed published the 35-page document in January 2017, along with a caution that its "allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors". In May 2017, Cohen provided a copy of his passport to BuzzFeed that showed it had been stamped for entry and exit to the United Kingdom and Italy. In addition, Cohen claims he was subjected to at least two separate Congressional investigations, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, due to the dossier being published.
An associate of Donald Trump expressed concerns to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about contacts between Russian Federation and Trump's presidential election campaign team, helping to trigger the probe into possible collusion, according to closed-door testimony made public on Tuesday by a senior Democrat.
"We ask you to change course and begin demonstrating true leadership on this national security issue", said the letter, released a year after USA intelligence agencies reported their findings that Russian Federation had sought to intervene in the 2016 election on Trump's behalf.
