Qatarlobbyists Sued by Trump’s Fundraiser for Email Hack

 

A lawsuit has been filed by President Donald Trump's prime fundraiser on Monday against Qatar and their lobbyists working for them, alleging they broke into the couple's email account as an aspect of an ongoing fight between Qatar and UAE.

 

Elliot Broidy and his wife Robin Rosenzweig claimed that cyber-criminals from Qatar hacked their email accounts during this year beginning and lobbying team of Qatar in Washington then forwarded the email to press over the city with an aim to dishonor Broidy. HuffPost, Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, New York Times, Associated Press, Al Jazeera and several others have reported stories that seem to be founded on the divulge message.

 

The fundraiser, who has rejected any wrongdoing, accused Qatar for weeks of organizing the attack in revenge for his blunt criticism about the government as well as his support for rival regions as uploaded on huffingtonpost.in dated 27/03/2018.

 

 

Broidy claimed, "it's also clear we believe, I was victimized for my potential political opinion against the state of Qatar sponsored terrorism as well as double dealing.

 

Broidy appointed a cybersecurity team analyst to investigate the attack, shortly after the press started questioning regarding the hacked emails. Broidyaccuses a Qatar's Republican lobbyist, Nick Muzin, in the legal-suit for publishing the hacked emails to journalists.

 

The government of Qatar has indicated in HuffPost's past statement that it is planning a counter legal-suit against Broidy for doing "false statement."

 

Broidy also blamed Muzin, a lobbyist appointed by Qatar, on Monday, of completing the task. "Lawsuit of Broidyis an undeniable endeavor to divert attention from fundraiser's controversial work and is as unstable as the guarantees he made to his clients," Muzin stated in a statement. "I am gratified with the work my agency has carried out with Qatar and anticipated and hope to continue to support pleasant dialogue and development in the Middle East."

 

Team of Broidy has affirmed the validness ofall the leaked emails - however, it also blamed the Qatar government and the lobbyist for sending over tampered or fake documents that seemed to show the involvement of Broidy with a sanctioned bank of Russia.
