Judge Deals Huge Blow to Firm Behind Anti-Trump Dossier

Judge Deals Huge Blow to Firm Behind Anti-Trump Dossier
A Trump-appointed federal judge said Friday that he will not recuse himself from a lawsuit related to the Steele dossier.

Trevor McFadden, a judge in Washington, D.C., issued the ruling in response to a recusal request submitted last month by Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that commissioned the dossier.

Fusion sought McFadden’s recusal as part of an attempt to avoid complying with a subpoena issued by a Russian businessman who is suing BuzzFeed News for publishing the unverified dossier. The businessman, Aleksej Gubarev, seeks depositions and documents from Fusion GPS as part of the lawsuit.

Fusion has argued that McFadden has several potential conflicts of interest warranting his removal from the case.
