Mueller tells BuzzFeed to quit lying about Trump

The Fake News media finally went too far with its litany of lies about President Donald John Trump. The latest lies embarrassed Bungling Bob Mueller, which is almost an impossibility.

Fox News reported, "Mueller team disputes BuzzFeed report claiming Trump told Cohen to lie."

Now something happened behind the scenes. Mueller leaked this fabrication to BuzzFeed, but has now reneged. Now, on Friday night, the leak is withdrawn.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller’s office, said, “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.”

The damage was done because first impressions matter.

Mueller should have denied this report the second it showed up on the Drudge Report.

But Mueller is as unethical as he is incompetent. I won't bring up again that taxpayers paid $5.8 million to buy off the victim of his bungled anthrax attack investigation. His failure to successfully prosecute anyone in the BCCI case 27 years ago is evidence enough.

BuzzFeed is sticking by its Fake News.

But Rudy Giuliani said, "Any suggestion – from any source – that the president counseled Michael Cohen to lie is categorically false.  Michael Cohen is a convicted criminal and a liar.... Today’s claims are just more made-up lies born of Michael Cohen’s malice and desperation, in an effort to reduce his sentence."

Mueller leaked this to change the subject from the government shutdown, which is embarrassing Democrats as it is another Acme Rocket backfiring on these Wile E. Coyotes.

Earlier today I wrote, "Shutdown hurts Democrats, so Mueller leaks." It began:
I see where Rick Wilson and his ilk have floated to the top of the swamp again as Bungling Bob Mueller has leaked that he has the goods on President Donald John Trump.
Buzz Feed reported, "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."
That's rich.
Buzz Feed is struggling in court to ward off a libel suit that will bankrupt it if there is justice. The lawsuit concerns its publication of the Russian Dossier -- the fake file that prompted Mueller's witch hunt.
The press in Washington is sure that this time, they have President Trump where they want him.
The rest of the post is here.

Losers. All of them. Democrats. The media. Mueller.

Hang in there. Good triumphs evil. Eventually.

Meanwhile, journalism is still practiced at Fox News.

  1. While working on a project today, I listened to Rush Limbaugh on KSFO, San Francisco - which prides itself on being a "Conservative Station in the Belly of the Beast" and later, local guys KMJ in Fresno - Devin Nunes country.

    Heard a lot of interesting stuff and laughed along with the hosts at Nancy Pelosi's latest prattfall.

    BUT every hour - on the hour - on these Conservative stations, it was "Cohen, Cohen, Cohen" and every other thing the snarky young female "reporters" could come up with, delivered in that breathless "We got him NOW" voice (Most of these "ladies" have voices that could cut glass.) The MOST IMPORTANT part of their "Report" was the lead-off "I'm Xxxx Xxxx" : getting their name on the air.

    Had I not know this was Fake News - on "Conservative" stations - I could have thought President Trump was at least under arrest, if not summarily executed by evening.

  2. A media outlet may wear a litigation in order to achieve its political aims, but the one thing it cannot afford to be is a laughing stock.

  3. When Democrat lawyers are so ashamed of Democrat Media they tell them to shut up, it must make the average Plantation Democrats frustrated. It was a good day.

  4. Don, you are the Man. You called it right away . That was both impressive and bold. I have a suggestion for anyone who plans to read anything by the left wing media, picture it on the front page of the National Enquirer, right beside the one that says, "Alien Found At Local Walmart". I've often wondered, if the destruction of integrity within the media, bothers the men and women who spent their careers reporting the truth. It has to hurt watching the reputation of journalism slipping to the depth of used car salesmen, or congressmen.

    1. Jim, alls I can say is: Based on the volume of emails and texts I’ve received from Trump/RNC the last four days, this madness must be a real moneymaker. Which is fine, as far as it goes, but at some point the goods gotta be delivered. Let’s hope Mr. T’s announcement today does just that.

  8. And not one station other than Fox reports that Bruce Orh informed all the top & middle brass in the DOJ and FBI that the Steele dossier was commissioned by Clinton and written by Steele who had an undeniable hatred for Trump and should not be relied upon. With that knowledge, they used it for the FISA warrants.

  9. Nope. It doesn't hurt or they would show some integrity. They quit being journalists years ago and now they are merely propagandists for the Dimocrat Party. Goebbels would be proud. - GOC

  10. Double Fake News - the Fake News they say (Trump ordered Cohen to lie!) and the Real News they hide (Ohr told FBI the dossier was fake, before FISA).

    I thought the FISA "law" was set up so no Fake Dossier would be used? Those who submitted the FISA application, knowingly using a Fake Dossier, were committing actual crimes.

    Justice demands indictments & trials.

  11. It should be pointed out that if a story came out that one of Obama's henchmen was claiming that Obama told him to lie to Congress, the media would have spent the past couple days trying to debunk the story and discredit the witness.
