Defence Filing in Dossier Defamation Case

Published: 2017 April 29

NOTE: I'm sharing a copy of Steele's defence filing here for the simple reason that I don't want to have to sign up to Scribd in order to get a PDF of the document (and I reckon neither do you). It comes by way of this story at The Guardian.

Aleksej Gubarev was identified in the Steele Dossier as a victim who was coerced by FSB into helping break into computers as part of the Kremlin's efforts to interfere in the 2016 US presidential election. After the dossier was published by BuzzFeed, Gubarev chose to file suit against Steele & Co. in the UK, and BuzzFeed in Florida. The attached is Steele's defence against Gubarev's claims in UK court. Steele admits he gave a complete copy of the dossier to the UK government, and sent an encrypted copy to his US client (Fusion GPS) to be hand delivered by Fusion to the US government, as represented by US Senator John McCain. Steele flatly denies giving a copy of the dossier to BuzzFeed.
