Mueller’s Team NUKES BuzzFeed’s Latest Junk Report Claiming Trump Directed Cohen to Lie to Congress About Moscow Project
BuzzFeed got nuked by Mueller’s office after they floated a fake news Trump-Cohen-Moscow report late Thursday night.
BuzzFeed dropped some late night ‘Trump-Russia’ fake news after the media and Dems had a rough day dealing with ‘Air Pelosi.’
The latest fake news story from BuzzFeed has 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:
Now the two sources have told BuzzFeed News that Cohen also told the special counsel that after the election, the president personally instructed him to lie — by claiming that negotiations ended months earlier than they actually did — in order to obscure Trump’s involvement.
The special counsel’s office learned about Trump’s directive for Cohen to lie to Congress through interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents. Cohen then acknowledged those instructions during his interviews with that office.
The fake news article curdled over night and fell apart in the morning after the two journalists who worked on the hit piece admitted that they hadn’t even seen the underlying report to corroborate their claims.
It gets better…
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.
