Judge orders Fusion GPS to answer questions about dossier


Daily CallerRepresentatives of Fusion GPS must answer a broad array of questions about the opposition research firm’s role in creating, investigating and disseminating the infamous Steele dossier, a federal judge ruled.

U.S. District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro issued the decision Tuesday in a defamation lawsuit a Russian tech executive filed against BuzzFeed News, which published the dossier on Jan. 10, 2017.

The trial is scheduled to begin in Miami in November.

You might expect that the trial date means we won't see any revelations about this before the midterm elections. But depositions usually happen before trial, likely well before trial as the lawyers need to prepare based on them. It seems likely we'll see leaks in October.
