Trump suggests Republicans 'finally take control' of Russian Federation probe

"My name was included only because of my proximity to the president".

"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", Cohen wrote in the lawsuit filed Tuesday night in NY state court. He provided the complaint and a confirmation email from the court system that he had filed the suit to Bloomberg News.

When reached by phone on Tuesday night, Cohen further criticized the "lie-filled" dossier. "It's the subject of multiple investigations by intelligence agencies, by Congress. It was presented to two successive Presidents, and has been described in detail by news outlets around the world", Rayford wrote.

BuzzFeed spokesman Matt Mittenthal defended the publication of the dossier, adding: "We look forward to defending our First Amendment rights in court".

Cohen also filed a lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan on Tuesday against Fusion GPS, saying the political opposition reports it prepared included "immensely damaging and defamatory statements".

Mr Levy did not identify the person he said had died.

CNN noted that at least nine high-profile Russians have died in the months after the 2016 presidential campaign. Both sessions were held behind closed doors.


President Donald Trump unloaded on a Democratic senator and the Russian Federation investigation in a series of tweets on Wednesday. Simpson did say "the DOJ has rules against law enforcement getting involved in investigations in the middle of a campaign and this was obviously - you know this obviously became a huge issue". The paper wrote that it continues to explore ties between Trump and Russian Federation, citing several people briefed on its research. "Why waste time talking about something that's not legitimate", he said.

Mr Trump said "we'll see what happens" when asked if he would provide an interview to Mr Mueller's team. "We can argue about what's prudent and what's not, but it's not a fabrication", he said. Richard Blumenthal (Conn.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.) said: "The American people deserve the facts".

He said at the time BuzzFeed published the dossier on January 10, 2017, they knew it had been written by Christopher Steele, the former head of the Russian Federation desk for British intelligence, and that then-Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R-AZ) had "acted" on its contents.

On Tuesday, Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen filed two defamation lawsuits, one in NY state court against the popular website BuzzFeed News, which published the Fusion GPS dossier a year ago, and the second in federal court against Fusion GPS itself, ABC News reported.

Whether in public remarks or on Twitter, the President has repeatedly called the special counsel investigation led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller a "witch hunt", dismissing it as a frivolous investigation launched by his political enemies seeking to delegitimize his 2016 election victory.

Fusion hired Steele in May or June of 2016, after exhausting open-source methods of investigating Trump, Simpson said.

But Russia has been linked to similar cyber attacks and disinformation campaigns in multiple elections spanning the entire globe since November 2016.
