President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, is considering legal action against BuzzFeed for its accusation, without proof, that he conspired with Russian agents during the presidential election, The Washington Times has reported.

Cohen is also contemplating a lawsuit against former British spy Christopher Steele, who authored the 35-page dossier that accused the Trump campaign of working with Moscow to meddle in the U.S. elections and which was posted in full by BuzzFeed.

Other news organizations reported on the existence of the dossier, which is unverified, but did not publish the documents.

Steele accused Cohen of traveling to Prague in August to meet with Russian agents in order to plan a cover-up of the alleged help the Trump campaign gave Moscow in hacking the Democratic Party email servers.

Cohen denied the accusations and showed his passport to illustrate that he had never been to Prague and also produced an itinerary of a trip he took to California at the same time Steele said he had been in Prague.

Steele was reportedly hired by both Republicans running against Trump in the primaries and later by the Hillary Clinton campaign, The Daily Mail reported.

In addition to the accusations against Cohen, the dossier cited sources who said Russia had in its possession compromising personal and business information about Trump's activities in Russia that it could have used against him for blackmail purposes.

Trump has vehemently denied all the accusations and said the entire affair was a political witch hunt against him.

Cohen, who raised millions of dollars for Trump during the campaign, was named earlier this month the national deputy chairman for the Republican National Committee's finance leadership team, the Washington Examiner reported.
