Cohen Abruptly Drops Dossier Lawsuit

This is a very bad omen my right wing friends. Cohen files a defamation lawsuit against the author of the Steele Dossier. The feds seize Cohen’s records. Now Cohen abruptly drops his defamation lawsuit. Tick tick tick.......

Michael Cohen abruptly drops lawsuit claiming Steele dossier is a lie

Michael Cohen abruptly drops lawsuit claiming Steele dossier is a lie https://thinkprogress.org/michael-co...-57e0cc661dfb/

Think Progress:

Trump’s longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, has abruptly dropped a defamation lawsuit he filed against BuzzFeed for publishing an unverified intelligence dossier put together by former British spy Christopher Steele that details the Trump campaign’s alleged links with the Putin regime.

The timing of Cohen’s move to drop the lawsuit is interesting, for at least a couple reasons. First, it comes the week after FBI agents acting on a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller raided Cohen’s home, office, and hotel room. Cohen’s decision to drop the lawsuit suggests agents may have seized evidence that will make it hard to him to maintain that the dossier is “fake” and a “lie filled document,” as he claimed on Twitter when he announced the “defamation action” in January.

Second, Cohen’s move to drop the lawsuit comes less than a week after McClatchy reported that Mueller possesses evidence that Cohen “secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign” — a claim that, if true, would verify an explosive claim in the dossier about Cohen traveling to Europe to meet with Russian officials and Eastern European hackers shortly after Paul Manafort left the Trump campaign.

The agenda comprised questions on how deniable cash payments were to be made to hackers who had worked in Europe under Kremlin direction against the CLINTON campaign and various contingencies for covering up these operations and Moscow’s secret liaison with the TRUMP team more generally,” the dossier says.

It is called money. As in he has to fight what battle he can afford, which is in the SDNY right now. Interesting how that worked out though, eh.

All the attorney client privilege is still in place, but that doesn't cover joint criminal enterprise...

That wasn't going anywhere, it was just for show, there wasn't a chance of prevailing because the Steele Dossier is all true.

There were in fact two suits by Cohen on this, and both are now dropped.

He was going after buzzfeed who in turn is going after the DNC.

The case that matters is buzzfeed vs the DNC. If they win that buzzfeed would not be responsible and they could then go after the nearly bankrupt DNC.

Has buzzfeed dropped that case?


Man, you guys get excited about the littlest things......look something shiny
