Donald Trump's Attorney Sues Buzzfeed Over Russian 'Dossier'
1/9/2018 5:31 PM PST
Michael Cohen is suing Buzzfeed over its Jan. 10, 2017 article headlined, "These Reports Allege Trump Has Deep Ties to Russia." The reports, purportedly gathered by a former British intelligence agent, were referred to as the "dossier."
According to the suit, obtained by TMZ, Cohen is particularly pissed about the claims he used his wife's and her father's Russian ties -- she was born in the Ukraine -- in order to set up a meeting with a Russian property developer. Cohen denies the allegations.
In docs, Cohen also refutes the dossier report claiming he met with Russian officials while in the Czech Republic. Cohen says he's never even been to the country.
Cohen calls the reports a collection of "muckraking statements" designed to harm his reputation, and connect him to alleged criminal contact between the Trump administration and Russian officials.References^ Donald Trump (www.tmz.com)
