Trump lawyer sues Buzzfeed for publication of Steele dossier

Cohen's complaint against Buzzfeed names Editor in Chief Ben Smith, reporter Ken Bensinger and editors Miriam Elder and Mark Schoofs, who were the bylines on the article Buzzfeed published accompanying the dossier.

"[Fusion GPS] recklessly placed it 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", read the lawsuit filed in NY state court.

"Your inbox and mine, as you say, are full of all sorts of would-be dossiers, of tips..."

A spokesman for BuzzFeed News responded to the suit in a statement: "The dossier is, and continues to be, the subject of active investigations by Congress and intelligence agencies".

We strongly believed that publishing the disputed document whose existence we and others were reporting was in the public interest.

"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", the statement finished.

Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, released a transcript Tuesday - over the objections of the committee's Republican chairman, Iowa Sen.

The lawsuits were not immediately available on online court resources.

Fusion's lawyer, Joshua Levy, told Bloomberg he had not seen the lawsuit and that he had "not received a letter from counsel on anything".

Cohen has emerged as a figure of interest to congressional investigators probing Russian interference in the 2016 election. He has also talked to the House and Senate intelligence committees.

The largely unverified memos were written by a former MI6 agent and included salacious allegations that Mr Trump consorted with prostitutes during a trip to Moscow in 2013.

The opposition research firm Fusion GPS said in a court filing Monday that the judge presiding over a defamation case involving the firm should recuse himself because of, among other things, his involvement in President Donald Trump's transition effort. "Why waste time talking about something that's not legitimate", he said.

Emergency personnel carry a woman rescued from a collapsed house after a mudslide in Montecito, California, U.S. According to Daily Mail, 100 homes have been destroyed and an additional 300 have been damaged.

Mr Mueller's team has produced two indictments and two guilty pleas by former aides to Mr Trump's campaign. "So, you know, if we can do that in the most appropriate way, I said it was okay for him to do that", Simpson said.

Cohen is a central figure in the dossier, which alleges an effort by high ranking officials in Russian Federation to develop a relationship with the Trump campaign.

According to the Washington Post, the DNC and Hillary Clinton's campaign paid Fusion GPS for the Trump dossier that the Democrats used to promote the narrative that the Trump campaign had colluded with Russian Federation.

Feinstein used her own authority to make public a long set of questions and answers from August between Senate Judiciary Committee investigators and Glenn Simpson, whose political research shop, Fusion GPS, plays a key role in the Russian Federation saga.

Earlier, Republican Senator Chuck Grassley had taken the equally unusual step of seeking a criminal investigation of Steele, alleging he had lied to the FBI over his contacts with the news media about the dossier.

He argued that the Steele report merited publication because the public had a right to know what information about Trump was being circulated among reporters, lawmakers and US investigators.
