President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, has reportedly filed a defamation suit
against BuzzFeed after the news outlet published the unsubstantiated collection of memos known as the Trump-Russia dossier last year, according to Bloomberg News.

Cohen is also reportedly suing Fusion GPS — the intelligence firm that commissioned the research into the alleged ties between Trump and Russia — and its cofounder, Glenn Simpson, Bloomberg reported.

"It will be proven that I had no involvement in this Russian collusion conspiracy," Cohen said to Bloomberg on Tuesday. "My name was included only because of my proximity to the president."

The infamous dossier, authored by former British spy Christopher Steele, has been a thorn in the side of the Trump administration because of the dossier's salacious and explosive allegations — most notably the allegations of collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian officials. BuzzFeed published the dossier in full last year.

In a statement to Bloomberg, BuzzFeed claims to have exercised its right to publish the dossier: "Its interest to the public is obvious," BuzzFeed spokesman Matt Mittenthal said. "We look forward to defending the free press and our First Amendment rights in court."
