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:
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.
This was after Ben Smith attacked Trump supporters earlier in the day for questioning the sloppy reporting.
