Special Counsel Mueller’s Office DEMOLISHES BuzzFeed Claim that Trump Told Associate to Lie


On Thursday funny cat pic site BuzzFeed published another one of its loosely sourced stories that the media unsurprisingly grabbed with gusto. This story claimed that President Trump had instructed his associate to lie to investigators.

BuzzFeed reported that Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, told prosecutors working for Special Counsel Mueller that Trump had told him to lie to Congress about his efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow during the 2016 campaign.

Then, all day Friday the usual suspects on TV and in the media went on the attack against Trump saying that the BuzzFeed report was the “proof” that Democrats needed to impeach President Trump.

But late on Friday, Mueller’s office put out a statement that totally destroyed BuzzFeed’s report.

“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.”

It was signed by a “spokesperson for special counsel Robert Mueller’s office.”

BuzzFeed itself out out the statement via Twitter:

What does this all mean?

BuzzFeed’s story is fake news and the Democrats’ high hopes to “get” Trump have been dashed… again.

Donald Trump, Jr., has had a great laugh over all this:

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino also crowed about BuzzFeed’s predicament:

Trump Junior also pointed out that the media will likely try to dump this whole story as quickly as possible:

Even hardcore left-wingers like CNN’s Jeffry Tobin is admitting that this is a HUGE black eye for the media:

Oh, the humanities.

In any case, this should be the end of BuzzFeed. How does BuzzFeed “News” have any credibility at all.
