    How many times have we heard "THIS IS IT, this is what will bring down Trump, no denying it now, time to impeach and charge him with a crime" only to see it fizzle out to a nothingbuger. This is unreal that the Mueller office would go so far as to issue a public rebuttal to a news story. And yet the MSM ie CNN and MSNBC are STILL trying to find something ANYTHING they can spin about it.

    I hope all the new media that has been calling for Trumps impeachment because of this and any members of Congress that cited this on it's face unsupported story and called for the same will issue apologize for being suckered into it.

    No. At a bare minimum, he violated campaign finance laws.

    And, no, I'm not citing a source for the 50th time--look in this thread,

    And now Buzzfeed is calling for the Mueller office to prove the statement it released. Hey Buzzfeed YOU prove YOUR statement not the other way around. Bring forth your sources else retract the story.

    Two basic ways that circular reporting can happen. Dashed lines indicate sourcing that isn't visible to the final reviewer. In both cases, one original source (top) appears to the final reviewer (bottom) as two independent sources

    Which parts are accurate, burden on the accuser for the acts being accused. And I wouldn't cite the Buzzfeed article as proof of anything. Mueller just said their reporting is not accurate.

    It's exactly what I said it is the Buzzfeed story had no corroboration as I said earlier and has now been debunked.

    Well, Mueller denied the allegations from buzz feed. And since democrats like and trust Mueller, they have to admit that once again they are subject to believe any conjecture that appeals to their hatred of trump



    So who lied to buzzfeed? We seem to have heard more lies coming from those who hate trump, than trump lies himself. Which is saying something. ha ha

    Will sales of tissue paper go up, to dry crying eyes? Just when they think they got him, it gets jerked away.

    Mueller's office must have thought it important to set the record straight in regards to yellow journalism?

    Have you read the statement? No, it is not "debunking" anything.

    WASHINGTON, Jan 18 (Reuters) - U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office issued a statement late on Friday taking issue with a report in Buzzfeed that President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen said Trump told him to lie to Congress.

    "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 special counsel spokesman Peter Carr in a statement.
