Human who became meme after Trump dossier suing BuzzFeed

President’s Donald Trump‘s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, is suing BuzzFeed for was published now-infamous Trump dossier.

You may not recollect Cohen, but if you are a denizen of the internet, you surely know that he’s never been to Prague. That’s because when BuzzFeed published the dossier, which claimed Cohen took a nefarious session in the Czech capital, he responded with this tweet.

It sparked a tremendously good meme because, well, posting the exterior of your passport does nothing to demonstrate what postages are( or aren’t) in it.

Thanks in part to the online celebrity it caused, Cohen is suing both BuzzFeed and the company behind the dossier, Fusion GPS, for inducing” false and libelous” statements that brought” harm to his personal and professional reputation, current business interests, ” and caused” the impairment of business opportunities .”

Cohen filed a suit in federal tribunal against Fusion GPS and in nation tribunal against BuzzFeed. In his grievance against Fusion and its founder Glenn Simpson, Cohen charged that the company acted recklessly with the unvetted material.

” recklessly placed beyond their control and allowed it to fall into the hands of media devoted to breaking news on the hottest subject of the working day: the Trump candidacy. ”

Cohen also makes specific note of the accusation about the trip to Prague.

Namely, Defendants published statements accusing Plaintiff of playing a key role in the conspiracy formed by nominee Donald Trump’s presidential campaign team and the Russian government to rig the 2016 U.S. presidential election through meeting with Kremlin officers in Prague, Czech Republic, in August and/ or September 2016 to choose 🙁 1) how to cover-up the crimes committed by Paul Manafort and Carter Page ;( 2) how be paid by the hackers who had been paid by the Trump campaign and the Russian government to undermine candidate Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign; and( 3) how to ensure that the hacking operation continued and cover-up it up from subsequently discovery, if necessary.

But guess what? The suit stimulates the same argument Cohen did on Twitter.

Plaintiff has never even been to Prague, Czech Republic, let alone in August of 2016, and therefore could not have met with Mr. Kosachev , nor could he have met with Kremlin policemen in a Russian parastatal organization.

The Fusion GPS dossier, which contains uncorroborated, salacious allegations about Trump and Russia has been in the background of the debate over the Trump presidency for a year now, but it’s moved to the forefront of the news the coming week. Yesterday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein released the testimony from Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s meeting with the Senate Judiciary Committee. That be coming back the wake of Republican senators recommending a criminal investigation be opened into the dossier’s writer, Christopher Steele, for inducing false statements to federal officials.
