Buzzfeed released a bombshell story just over 24 hours ago. The story claimed that Trump ordered Cohen to lie to Congress and the Mueller investigation had physical evidence to back it up.

The story justifiably led to many legislators calling for the impeachment of the president. These same legislators called on the Mueller probe to produce this evidence since this would indeed be a high crime and misdemeanor.

In response the Mueller investigation had this to say:


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


This tells me that because this story was generating so much attention from Congress, the Mueller team did the right thing. Even though it gives Trump more ammo for his “fake news” rhetoric it was the right move. If they do not have evidence of this crime then they did the right thing in disputing this report. The only problem I have is that they are so vague. The statement doesn’t outright dismiss the story but only calls into question “specific statements” without stating what specific statements. Is it the statements about the investigation having evidence? Is it the statements claiming Trump told Cohen to lie?

Also, since this is the first and only time that Mueller has disputed a news article, does that mean all previous reporting is true?

Additionally, the network news programs did a very good job with this reporting. For the most part they all made sure to include the words “if true" when discussing this topic. They didnt just accept it at face value as the truth. As you can see in this video:



Whatever it is the Mueller investigation made the right move to speak up and ramp down bad reporting. Once again proving that Mueller is not just out to get Trump on some witch hunt but rather conducting his investigation with integrity. So now that Trump has agreed with the Mueller investigation maybe he will stop calling this a witch hunt...... yeah, probably not.

The bottom line is that both the Mueller investigation and the main stream media handled this situation perfectly. Will that change Trump or his supporters minds about "fake news"? I doubt it.

So can we stop saying Buzzfeed is a credible news source? And saying the msm handled this perfectly is a massive reach. The threw a bombshell news story hoping it would stick and did what they usually do made a correction.

How many people just read the headline and assumed Trump told his lawyer to lie?

Here is where your whole thread falls apart.

The media has been spewing BS like this for the past 2 years. And the leftists have been calling for impeachment even before President Trump was sworn in.

So no amount of damage control now is going to help you save face after the screeching you and your comrades did the other day.

The best thing for you would be to just admit you've been full of BS for the last two years, you were full of BS the other day and you're still full of BS now.

Hard times for the liberals. Since they elevated Mueller to God status for the past two years, it's difficult for them to come up with anything now.

The entire main stream media is not responsible for this report. I am saying they reacted correctly by prefacing their discussions as “if true”. When this story dropped the rest of the MSM was about as surprised as the rest of us. They did their jobs and started independently verifying the story. Without verification they only referenced it as “if true”. Yes, that is the perfect way to handle a story that is not verified.

Plus, we do not know what piece of the story Mueller is objecting to. The statement merely mentioned specific statements it did not say the entire report was false.

In my opinion, the Mueller team needs to clarify their statement further to let us know exactly what they are objecting to. However, I doubt we will get that before he releases his final findings.

Also. Buzzfeed was just reporting what they were told by these two senior law enforcement officials. It’s not like they just made the story up. If anyone made the story up it would be these two officials.

When the news lies and then you spread it for them as truth that makes you a liar.

It is what it is.

I’m sorry, but you’re wrong.

This is the very first time that any report has said that Trump committed an impeachable offense with documentation to back it up. If that truly existed this is enough by itself to take down any presidency.

Mueller proved his integrity by shutting it down.

Either we are a nation ruled by law or we are a dictatorship. It's getting pretty close to the time when people have to start showing their true colors.

Which is more important, the oath to the Constitution, or loyalty to ones party?

I am waiting for the all out attack on Mueller from the media. They will attack his credibility and denounce his findings. They will even probably make fun of his skin tone, hair and choice of clothing.

By destroying completely any shred of credibility the all Trump hate news media might have had globally?

He should get a Nobel for that alone, regardless of the outcome of his "probe".

You only hate and criticize in other people what you do not like about your own character.

I'm not sure I agree with your projection that liberals have "elevated Mueller to God status" is accurate. Myself and every liberal I know just watch what is going on with feelings of amusement. Mueller is just a cog in the government machine. It could be any special prosecutor causing trouble. It doesn't have to be Mueller.

So when he completely exonerates President Trump of any Russian collusion you're still going to feel the same?

The leak, if it was even a leak and not just made up wholesale junk, came from members of Muellers team. No other source possible. Mueller simply CHA because the last thing they want is a Federal investigation into the source, which is his own team and he knows it, he knows who it is, and would not surprise me if he orchestrated the leaks himself in order to continue to pour fuel on an investigation which 2 years to date has failed to produce much, other than individual corruption that does not involve the President. Mueller is as much a politician as the rest of the idiots in DC and we should all by now recognize that NONE in DC have anything which remotely resembles integrity, much less credibility.

The only thing that has been proven is your incredulous approach to this story.

You are incapable of believing you got taken for a ride.

That’s right, as you said, a fake news story led legislators to move for impeachment. Like the media’s base, like late night comedy, these are the types of people who are led by the headlines of the MSM and No other evidence.

Of course Mueller wants to push them away with a 10-foot pole.

There was no leak.

The FuzzBeed trash was concocted by professional pr smear teams.

It's nothing new especially for failed Democrat garbage trucks with flat tires 🤣
