2016 ELECTION/LEGAL/RUSSIA: “Donald Trump has said that a dossier alleging that he engaged in ‘perverted sexual behaviour’ and paid bribes to Russian officials to further his business interests is ‘false’ and ‘phoney’, and is seeking to sue for damages in London.

The former US president indicated that he was willing to give evidence at the high court in his case alleging breach of data protection rights by Orbis Business Intelligence over the 2016 ‘Steele dossier’. The dossier, investigating Russian efforts to influence the 2016 US presidential campaign, was compiled by the Orbis co-founder Christopher Steele, who previously ran MI6’s Russia desk.”
