President Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen is suing Buzzfeed for publishing the unsubstantiated Russian dossier. Cohen believes the dossier has defamed him. Because of his proximity to the President, he is mentioned in the dossier 15 times.
“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,” said Cohen.
“We’re a year down the road now. I, like all Americans — Republicans and Democrats alike — want to know to what extent Russia involved themselves in our democratic process, and more importantly what can be done to stop future involvement by foreign governments,” said Cohen.
Normally being sued would be considered a bad thing. You would be ashamed of being sued because it means you possibly did something wrong. However, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough congratulated Buzzfeed, because apparently it’s an honor to do anything that pisses of Trump and the people around him. Even if it is illegal.
“We need to congratulate [Buzzfeed editor] Ben Smith — when he walked on the set I heard everyone congratulation you, Ben Smith, for being sued by the president. Good on you, son. That’s good stuff,” said Scarborough. “It’s just from his personal lawyer,” responded Smith. “It’s OK, you’re a winner too. My lord,” responded Mika Brezinski.
