Mueller's office disputes BuzzFeed report that Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress
Special counsel Robert Mueller's office disputed an explosive story from BuzzFeed News as "Not accurate" Friday night, after the news outlet reported the President had directed his personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress, for which Cohen was later prosecuted.
"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 a statement from Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller's office.
It's highly unusual for the special counsel's office to provide a statement to the media -- outside of court filings and judicial hearings -- about any of its ongoing investigative activities. Ref. CNN.
