Trump Fires Back after Mueller Disputes Accuracy of Report

January 19, 2019

WASHINGTON (AP) — Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office has issued a rare public statement disputing the accuracy of BuzzFeed News’ report that said President Donald Trump’s former attorney told Mueller that the president directed him to lie to Congress.

BuzzFeed, citing two unidentified law enforcement officials, reported that Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about a Moscow real estate project and that Cohen told Mueller the president personally instructed him to lie about the timing of the deal.

The statement by Mueller’s office on Friday night doesn’t cite any specific errors. In it, the special counsel’s spokesman, Peter Carr, said, “BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the special counsel’s office, and characterization of documents and testimony” is not accurate.” BuzzFeed spokesman Matt Mittenthal said the publication stands by its reporting.
