Michael Cohen, Trump's personal atty, files lawsuits against FusionGPS, BuzzFeed over 'dossier'


Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s personal attorney and close confidant, filed a pair of lawsuits on Tuesday, one in state court against the popular website BuzzFeed and the other in federal court against the private investigative firm Fusion GPS.

In both suits, Cohen claims that the infamous dossier of salacious but unconfirmed allegations of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russian agents compiled by Fusion GPS and later published by BuzzFeed contained “false and defamatory” allegations that resulted in “harm to his personal and professional reputation, current business interests, and the impairment of business opportunities.”

According to the federal complaint, Fusion GPS, co-founded by former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson, “recklessly placed [the dossier] beyond their control and allowed it to fall into the hands of media devoted to breaking news on the hottest subject of the day: the Trump candidacy.”

According to the New York state complaint, which names BuzzFeed’s top editor Ben Smith as well as Ken Bensinger, Miriam Elder and Mark Schoofs, Cohen claims “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.”

When reached for comment, a BuzzFeed News spokesperson defended the news organization’s decision to publish the document.

“The dossier is, and continues to be, the subject of active investigations by Congress and intelligence agencies,” wrote BuzzFeed News spokesperson Matt Mittenthal in an email. “It was presented to two successive presidents, and has been described in detail by news outlets around the world. Its interest to the public is obvious.

That it is of interest to anyone is a sign of how messed up people are. I blame the internet.

Buzzfeed is 99% fake news with a globalist agenda. I'm not familiar with Fusion GPS, but because they have ties with WSJ, it's safe to assume the same. If Cohen's lawsuit is accurate and legitimate, I hope the settlement drives both these fake news operations into bankruptcy. There needs to be extreme accountability within the media, which seemingly is increasingly lost amongst these hack "journalists" that do no research or fact checking, and just print BS in the name of copy and clicks. Just wait until the "Russian Conspiracy" does a 180 degree turn and the Clintoons/Democraps are actually the target. That will be fun, but never reported accurately by the corporate, globalist, fake news Ministry of Truth.
