In a public statement for the first time, the office of the American special investigator Robert Mueller, on Friday night in the media, has defined the information disseminated on President Trump as inaccurate. The internet portal Buzzfeed reported that Trump had persuaded his personal lawyer Michael Cohen to lie in Congress – a crime. These were projects of the Trump company in Russia, whose existence Trump had denied. Cohen has already been convicted of lying and must go to jail in March.
The report, based on the statements of two unnamed employees of the Ministry of Justice, had caused a sensation and caused a sensation. Trump's opponents believed they now had sufficient reason to initiate proceedings to deprive the President of the office.
The wording of the short statement from the Mueller office is blurred, certainly on purpose. The text does not indicate what exactly is wrong with the BuzzFeed report. It simply means that the description of specific statements and the characterization of documents and testimonies are inaccurate. BuzzFeed remained true to his account in his reaction to Mueller's speech.
Interestingly, no other medium was able to confirm the relationship from its sources and enrich it with new details. This and Mueller's statement is certainly used by the president's followers to derail many media as suppliers of "false news", which are not true, but Trump wanted to break down at all costs. The president himself did not label the Buzzfeed article on Friday as a fake, simply pointing out that Cohen had already been convicted of being a liar and a scam.
