  • Buzzfeed subpoenas the DNC

    BuzzFeed has subpoenaed the Democratic National Committee for information related to the Democratic hack — their latest salvo in the media company’s efforts to defend itself against an ongoing libel suit connected to their publication of the infamous Steele dossier.
    The subpoena, a copy of which was reviewed by Foreign Policy, was served on the DNC Friday. Aleksej Gubarev, a Russian technology executive, has sued BuzzFeed for libel for its decision to publish a series of memos authored by the former British spy Christopher Steele. Those memos — part of a so-called “dossier” of information about President Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia, include claims strongly denied by Gubarev that his companies were recruited by the Kremlin’s security organs to break into Democratic Party computer systems ahead of the 2016 election.
    BuzzFeed is trying to figure out if the allegations relating to their libel suit are true as part of their defense strategy that could end up revealing details of the dossier and the DNC hack that have not been made public.
    According to a copy of the subpoena reviewed by FP, BuzzFeed is seeking “technical information and data obtained during the investigation into the Democratic Hack, including all host-based and network-based artifacts.” It is also seeking “non-public” analysis and reports into the DNC hack, and copies of the malware that was allegedly used in the attack.
