Trump’s Personal Lawyer Sues Buzzfeed

Trump’s lawyer sues Buzzfeed for defamation over Russia dossier

Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen sued Buzzfeed Inc. on Tuesday for defamation over allegations about him in a dossier the news organization published that was commissioned in 2016 by the president’s political opponents.

Cohen said he also filed a second defamation suit against political intelligence firm Fusion GPS, which compiled the dossier, in federal court. Buzzfeed published the dossier in its entirety nearly a year ago, which it said it obtained from a source it didn’t identify.

The dossier contains unverified claims that Cohen and Trump had suspicious connections with Russian figures. Most ot08her U.S. news organizations declined to publish the document because many of its claims — some of them salacious — haven’t been substantiated.

“It will be proven that I had no involvement in this Russian collusion conspiracy,” Cohen said in an interview Tuesday. “My name was included only because of my proximity to the president.”
