“Some cable morning shows began their programming Friday with the blockbuster BuzzFeed News report that said President Trump instructed his former attorney, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress about a Trump Tower project in Moscow,” Fox News reported.
On CNN, “New Day” host John Berman said the news was so big it almost caused him to spill his coffee. On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Willie Geist opened the show by calling the BuzzFeed report “a big one.”
President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according to two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter.
“Trump also supported a plan, set up by Cohen, to visit Russia during the presidential campaign, in order to personally meet President Vladimir Putin and jump-start the tower negotiations. “Make it happen,” the sources said Trump told Cohen,” BuzzFeed reported.
However, now the spokesperson for the Mueller Special Counsel team just denounced the BuzzFeed report as being inaccurate. This is a unusual event since the Mueller team has rarely made any public statements.
OUR FREE OPINION
It appears that Trump’s claims about “fake news” are more accurate than some people think. Dan Bongino said on Fox news tonight that the story reeked of red flags from the start. We agree. This is not BuzzFeed’s first untruthful story—their credibility is lost.
