Judge Drops Trump Lawsuit Against Christopher Steele’s Company in London

Donald Trump had been hoping his case fell on friendly turf across the pond, suing Orbis Business Intelligence, a company co-founded by Christopher Steele, for claims made about Trump in the Steele dossier.

Trump said the “scandalous claims” ruined his reputation, seeking damages in the suit.

Unfortunately, Judge Karen Steyn ruled that the case was not even worthy of heading into the courtroom.

Case Dismissed

I am sure this is a massive blow to Trump considering the dossier had been debunked.

This was the dossier that was initially ordered by an anti-Trump Republican, then dropped, but it was picked back up by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign to use against Trump in the 2016 election.

That dossier, however, wound up being the focal point of the Russian collusion investigation, including being used as a source to support multiple FISA warrants that were signed off on during the investigation.

Among the other accusations against Trump, there were utterly disgusting salacious allegations regarding Trump and Russian prostitutes.

Judge Steyn ruled, "There are no compelling reasons to allow the claim to proceed to trial.”

The Trump campaign responded, "The High Court in London has found that there was not even an attempt by Christopher Steele, or his group, to justify or try to prove, which they absolutely cannot, their false and defamatory allegations in the fake ‘dossier.’

"The High Court also found that there was processing, utilization, of those false statements. President Trump will continue to fight for the truth and against falsehoods such as ones promulgated by Steele and his cohorts."

I don’t think I am going out on a limb to say that Trump really needed this money, already facing an $83 million judgment against him in the E. Jean Carroll case and a possible $370 judgment against him in the New York fraud case.

Now, all Trump has for his efforts is more legal bills, which are currently eating up his PAC money.
