Trump legal claim over ‘sex party’ allegations in Russia dismissed

US

Donald Trump’s legal claim over allegations he took part in “perverted” sex acts and gave bribes to Russian officials has been dismissed by a High Court judge.

The former US president, 77, had brought the data protection case in the UK after claims were published about him in the so-called Steele dossier before the 2016 election.

Mr Trump’s claim was against Orbis Business Intelligence – founded by Christopher Steele, who previously ran the Secret Intelligence Service’s (MI6) Russia desk.

Mr Steele was the author of the dossier which included allegations Mr Trump had been “compromised” by the Russian security service, the FSB. Mr Trump denied the claims.
