DUMPSTER FIRE: Unhinged Buzzfeed Editor Ben Smith Stands By Garbage Moscow Tower Report — Attacks Trump Supporters (VIDEO)
BuzzFeed got nuked by Mueller’s office on Friday night after the liberal media platform floated a fake news Trump-Cohen-Moscow report late Thursday night.
BuzzFeed dropped some late night ‘Trump-Russia’ fake news on Thursday after the media and Democrats’ rough day dealing with ‘Air Pelosi.’
The latest fake news story from BuzzFeed had the Democrats and their stenographers in the mainstream media riled up and calling for Trump’s head.
BuzzFeed reported late Thursday night that according to law enforcement sources, Trump directed his former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the proposed Trump Tower in Moscow.
BuzzFeed originally reported that Michael Cohen told Mueller’s team that President Trump personally instructed him to lie to Congress:
On Friday evening, a spokesperson for the special counsel disputed BuzzFeed’s junk report, calling it “inaccurate.”
“BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” the statement from Mueller’s spokesperson read.
On Friday night Buzzfeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith stood by the junk report.
