    DNC Refused To Comply With Dossier-Related Subpoena, So BuzzFeed Sued

    DNC Refused To Comply With Dossier-Related Subpoena, So BuzzFeed Sued

    Heh.


    BuzzFeed News sued the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Tuesday to force the release of information that the news outlet hopes will help it defend against a lawsuit related to the Steele dossier.

    BuzzFeed is seeking digital information that could shed light on the cyber attacks against the DNC during the presidential campaign.



    The news outlet faces three separate lawsuit related to its publication of the dossier, which was written by former British spy Christopher Steele and financed by the Clinton campaign and DNC.

    The suit against the DNC seeks information that could help defend against a defamation lawsuit filed by Aleksej Gubarev, a Russian tech executive accused in the dossier of using his web hosting companies to hack into the DNCís computer systems.

    ...

    BuzzFeed filed the suit after the DNC refused to comply with a subpoena that the website issued in November. DNC lawyers expressed concern that complying with the subpoena would put donor information and voter data at risk.

    ...

    BuzzFeed also seeks a full version of a report compiled by CrowdStrike, a cyber security firm that the DNC hired to investigate the breach of its computer networks.

    The lawsuit follows the revelation Monday that BuzzFeed has hired Anthony Ferranto, a former FBI agent and National Security Council official, to conduct an investigation to help verify the dossier. Ferranto, who left the White House last April to work at FTI Consulting, has been conducting interviews and gathering documents in a search for evidence that Gubarev was behind the DNC hack.

    Buzz Feed



    These Left Wing sites are getting embarrassed on a consistent basis. They are going to get their asses sued off for lying.

    A pretty far Left Wing site is having to sue the DNC!!!! It's gold!

    It's a defamation lawsuit filed by Aleksej Gubarev. “Who on God’s green earth is Aleksej Gubarev?” And that is precisely the point, because the realistic distinction between freedom of the press and libelous liability for a publication revolves around the question of whether the subject of the offending article is a public figure. If one is a celebrity, a politician, the CEO of a large company or somebody who courts the public eye, the law grants the press remarkably free reign in terms of how liberal a reporter can be with the truth.

    First, Gubarev, a Russian living in Cyprus, is CEO of Luxembourg-based XBT Holding S.A. and “has offices in Florida and Texas as well as other locations across the globe.” XBT has various subsidiary companies, employing over 300 people around the world including Webzilla, Inc. which is located in Florida. The business provides Internet hosting solutions, network services and web development services.
    From a jury optics perspective, if a Russian national living in Cyprus with various companies worldwide is alleging injury in Broward County, the more likely he is to be held to be found a limited purpose public figure.

    Secondly, and this is where doing research prior to launching a suit may help. While Buzzfeed was clearly following its own corporate culture of trying to get as many hits on a story as it possibly can, Florida has recognized the defense of the neutral reporting privilege, and in those cases it was recognized even where the plaintiff is a private figure. In short, if a responsible, prominent organization or individual makes a serious charge on a matter of public interest against another public figure or organization—and the charge is accurately and disinterestedly reported—the press may have a defense. Smith may have done just enough to fall under this umbrella by pointing repeatedly to the unverified nature of the allegations, but it will be a tough road to hoe.

    I REPEAT WHO CARES IF THIS GUY IS SUING BUZZ FEED, AND BUZZ FEED IS SUING THE DNC? YOU DO GOOD FOR YOU. THE REST OF US DON'T GIVE A RAT'S ASS BECAUSE ITS A CIVIL MATTER. LET US KNOW WHEN IT IS ALL DONE AND DUSTED IF IT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE INVESTIGATION BUT FOR NOW YOUR MAMA COULD HAVE SUED IF SHE WAS MENTIONED, IT DOESN'T MEAN SHIT.

    Buzz feed cares in a huge way or they would not be suing the DNC. I don't think they can survive a big monetary hit when this Russian wins for Defamation and Libel.

    Perfect example of attempting to derail a thread by a coven of regressives.
