For months now, President Trump and his administration have been fighting back against claims that he worked with the Russians. Robert Mueller and his team have been investigating any links between the two and have found nothing to back up these allegations.
Now Trump and his legal team are fighting back in a huge way. Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen has just announced a new lawsuit against BuzzFeed News and Fusion GPS because of their dossier that has proven completely false on many accounts.
Cohen came out with some pretty clear thoughts on the issue.
“IT WILL BE PROVEN THAT I HAD NO INVOLVEMENT IN THIS RUSSIAN COLLUSION CONSPIRACY. MY NAME WAS INCLUDED ONLY BECAUSE OF MY PROXIMITY TO THE PRESIDENT.”
Fusion GPS is the firm behind the dossier itself. They have said that it was part of a research effort on then-candidate Trump and his campaign team. However, after a year worth of investigations, nothing of value has been connected back to Trump.
The lawsuit went for BuzzFeed editor in chief Ben Smith, as well as Miriam Elder and Mark Schoofs and reporter Ken Bensinger. All of them were in some way involved with the publishing of the dossier.
The companies involved have refused to admit any wrongdoing on the publication of the dossier.
