Trump's lawyer sues Buzzfeed for defamation over Russian Federation dossier

One year after BuzzFeed published former MI6 operative Christopher Steele's private intelligence dossier alleging Donald Trump's ties to Russian Federation (sometimes known in certain circles as the "pee dossier"), the website's editor in chief Ben Smith is defending the decision. He continued filing memos that described what he was told about Trump's connections to Russian Federation, which, together, make up what has become known as the dossier.

After the election, a co-worker of Steele's - Andrew Wood, a former British diplomat in Moscow - discussed the dossier with Sen.

Cohen is accused in the dossier of traveling to Prague in August 2016 as part of a collusion conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian government.

Gulen, who has lived in self-imposed exile in the United States since 1999, has denied the charges and condemned the coup. Foreign ministry says revise travel plans or act with caution because of risks of "terrorism" and arbitrary detention .

After that briefing, CNN reported that the briefing had occurred, and BuzzFeed published the dossier in full - prompting public awareness of the dossier, which has become a political scourge hanging over Trump's presidency.

At one point, Trump said any collusion was "really with the Democrats and the Russians, far more than it is with the Republicans and the Russians", though he did not elaborate.

Trump and the White House insist there was no collusion between the campaign and the Russians.

Simpson told investigators it was his understanding that the Federal Bureau of Investigation "believed Chris's information might be credible because they had other intelligence that indicated the same thing and one of those pieces of intelligence was a human source from inside the Trump organization". In fact, Steele was so shocked by what he learned from his sources that he felt obliged to report it to the FBI, Simpson says. When asked why he was declining to answer, his attorney, Joshua Levy, said Simpson "wants to be very careful to protect his sources". And Mr. Trump and his allies have seized on the dossier in their efforts to discredit the special counsel leading the investigation, Robert Mueller.

They said: "Heavy rainfall expected later Friday, overnight and into early Saturday with falls of 30 to 50mm expected". Top afternoon temperatures 3 to 7 C., generally, but 8 to 10 C., in southern coastal counties.

Simpson said he and Steele also began referring press questions to the FBI over whether Trump was under investigation, too.

The plaintiffs issued a subpoena to Fusion for a deposition and documents related to its involvement in the production of the Trump-Russia dossier.

He also added that he and Trump did not talk about the investigations. They said he had given false information - but the details are secret, so the matter can't be hashed out in the open. "The transcript of Glenn Simpson's lengthy responses to the Senate Judiciary Committee's questioning speaks for itself".

"Feinstein's unilateral decision was made as the committee is still trying to secure testimony from other witnesses, including Jared Kushner", said Grassley's spokesman. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., who also sits on the Judiciary Committee.
