The left wing site BuzzFeed published a report on Thursday night this week which was the latest gotcha piece on Trump which was sure to end his presidency. Democrats and people in media ran with it for 24 hours, suggesting this was the one, this was the story they had all been waiting for.
Then something amazing happened.
The special counsel in the Mueller investigation, which never comments on things like this, released a statement saying the report was wrong.

Mueller team disputes BuzzFeed report claiming Trump told Cohen to lie
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office on Friday issued an extraordinary statement disputing a bombshell news report that claimed President Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie about the timing of discussions over a proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow.
“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,” Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller’s office, said.
The statement is remarkable in that Mueller’s team rarely issues statements in response to news stories. But BuzzFeed’s story sparked immense interest from Democrats, who called for renewed investigations and even suggested the allegations could be a basis for impeachment proceedings.
Democrats and their many allies in media fall for this garbage every time and it’s easy to understand why.
They want it to be true.
