BuzzFeed subpoenas the Democratic National Committee for documents related to the Russian dossier

November 6, 2017

  BuzzFeed was the original the original “news” outlet which published the mostly debunked Russian dossier which is at the heart of the investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Because of this BuzzFeed is being sued for libel.

  In recent weeks it has come to light that the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign (recently it has been alleged that for all intents and purposes these two entities were one and the same) were behind the funding of the Russian dossier.

  In the wake of this news, and possibly because of this news, BuzzFeed has issued a subpoena to the Democratic National Committee for documents related to the Russian dossier because they believe the document was being peddled by higher-ups in Washington. Here is more:

BuzzFeed has subpoenaed the Democratic National Committee for information related to the Democratic hack — its latest salvo in the media company’s efforts to defend itself against an ongoing libel suit connected to its publication of the infamous Steele dossier. The subpoena, a copy of which was reviewed by Foreign Policy, was served on the DNC Friday.

“One prong of our strategy is to prove that the dossier was being acted on and circulated by officials at the highest levels of government; but we would be remiss if we didn’t use every tool to determine the truth of what actually happened — and whether, as the dossier claims, Mr. Gubarev’s servers were behind the DNC hack,” Matt Mittenthal, a spokesperson for BuzzFeed News, told FP.

  Maybe, just maybe, the tables are beginning to turn. The Democratic National Committee could not be reached for comment…

    Ever since Hillary’s tale began to unravel, I’ve actually enjoyed reading the news. I loved the revelations that have just come from Donna Brazile.

    So, here I sit, popcorn in one hand, cold drink in the other watching a wonderful spectacle unfold. My dream is to see Hillary Clinton sentenced for her crimes (any of them, I don’t care which) before I die.

      It has been fun watching this unfold, hasn’t it?! I still hope that someday she will get what is coming to her.
