In a very rare statement issued by Special Counsel Robert Muellers office tonight, they have disputed the claims made by BuzzFeed news.
BuzzFeed has became known known for salacious hit pieces on conservative influencers and the President of the United States. This is just another account of them not being trustworthy.
The Special Counsel’s office released the following statement below.
“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,” special counsel spokesman Peter Carr said in a statement to BuzzFeed released on Friday night.
It’s very rare to see Mueller’s office respond to stories related to the special counsel’s investigation, but this must have been so bad they felt they needed to issue a statement.
The BuzzFeed report issued on Thursday night made claims that they had proof of text messages and other documents claiming that Trump had asked Cohen to lie for him. It came out later today as we reported that they never even saw any documentation before reporting such a salacious hit piece on the President.
The story cited “two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter.” Watch the video of the BuzzFeed reporters on CNN saying that they have never seen any of the documents or reports, yet they wrote it as factual.
Trump on Friday in the wake of the report accused his former longtime attorney of lying in order to reduce his prison time.
BuzzFeed had released a statement earlier Friday defending the reporters behind the story and saying that it “stands by this story 100%.”
This isn’t good for BuzzFeed or the left for that matter. They have now for the 1,000 time during this Presidency went from celebrating President Donald Trump’s defeat to realizing they have nothing once again.
