Trump is ordered to pay six figures to guy who cooked up pee tape hoax: ‘Make it make sense!’

Presumptive GOP nominee Donald J. Trump was ordered to pay a six-figure sum to cover the legal costs from the company founded by the former British spook whom he sued over the infamous “dirty dossier” and its scandalous allegations.

A judge in London, who last month threw out the lawsuit against ex-MI6 agent Christopher Steele’s Orbis Business Intelligence which she said was “bound to fail,” socked Trump for 300,000 pounds which is about $385,000 in U.S. dollars.

According to court documents that were released on Thursday, Judge Karen Steyn rejected a higher amount of 634,000 pounds or about $809,000, saying that it was too high for the one-day hearing,” according to the Associated Press.

The suit, which Trump’s lawyer argued caused reputational damage to the former president over its “shocking and scandalous” false claims, was thrown out by Steyn on February 1, also ordering that Obris’s legal costs be reimbursed.

“There are no compelling reasons to allow the claim to proceed to trial,” she said in rejecting the suit.

The judge also said that she had “not considered, or made any determination, as to the accuracy or inaccuracy” of the dirty dossier, noting that Trump had rejected the salacious allegations which included peeing prostitutes to be “wholly untrue.”

“Orbis said the lawsuit should be thrown out because the report was never meant to be made public and was published by BuzzFeed without the permission of Steele or Orbis. It also said the claim was filed too late,” AP reported.

Trump’s surprise upset of heavily favored Democrat Hillary Clinton was seen as an unforgivable sin by Western intelligence agencies which pulled out all the stops to destroy him, one of them being the dossier that was the foundation for the entire Russiagate hoax, opposition research that was paid for by Democrats seeking to promote the false narrative that President Vladimir Putin and the Russians had “kompromat” or compromising information on Clinton’s opponent.

The leaked 35-page dossier was published by BuzzFeed, a bottom-feeding internet news outlet that made it publicly available in January 2017, only days before Trump took office.  The timing ensured that his time in the White House would be spent dealing with manufactured scandals and Democrat lawfare, particularly the witch hunt by former special prosecutor Robert Mueller that failed to turn up any evidence of Russian collusion.

“It was coming from a credible source, someone with a track record, someone who was a credible and respected member of an allied intelligence service during his career,” disgraced ex-FBI director James Comey who was fired by Trump told ABC News in 2018. “And so it was important that we try to understand it, and see what could we verify, what could we rule in or rule out.”

“President Trump will continue to fight for the truth and against falsehoods such as ones promulgated by Steele and his cohorts,” said Steven Cheung, Trump’s campaign spokesman in a statement after the case was tossed.

The financial penalties are adding up for Trump who is finding out that the courts across the pond are just as hostile as the ones in New York City.
