Special Counsel Mueller is challenging the reporting of BuzzFeed, as to the claim about Trump lawyer/fixer Michael Cohen being instructed to lie to Congress by #BenedictDonald. Could BuzzFeed have gotten it ALL wrong, or is the Special Counsel doing a lawyerly dodge, picking at some of the details, to get #BenedictDonald off the scent? It could be a lawyerly way to make it look like he’s denying the story while actually not denying it. Read it for yourself. Here is the statement – it’s short:
“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,” said Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller.
To me, this is a carefully crafted statement and it must be read VERY carefully!!
