Whoops – Rare Statement: Special Counsel Says Buzzfeed Report is “Not Accurate”….

All day the left-wing media have been breathlessly reporting on a Buzzfeed claim citing reports from Michael Cohen.  In a story published Thursday, BuzzFeed cited two unnamed federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation on the matter who said Cohen acknowledged to Mueller’s office that he was instructed by Trump in 2017 to lie to Congress about the now-abandoned real estate deal to build a Trump Tower in Russia.

Except there’s a problem…. well, it never happened. The claim was so ridiculous the Special Counsel spokesperson Peter Carr just made a statement:  #FakeNews.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office on Friday issued a rare statement disputing a bombshell news report claiming President Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie about the timing of discussions over a proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow.

“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,” Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller’s office, said Friday. (read more)

There’s a pattern….  This could also have been “black hat hunting” again.

    What I find odd is that the Swamp issued the above statement debunking the disinformation.

    That’s weird! Everything they have been doing is DISINFORMATION. The Russia Hoax is based on disinformation.

    They benefit from lies and smears. This was a retraction of a smear. Weird ain’t it?

    Dan Bongino may be right. This was canary trap to sniff out leakers. There has been a lot of leaks, this was due to happen.

      I personally think that Mueller is nowhere close to winding up – he’s got to be in place until after Trump leaves office. There may be an interim report coming up as a way of justifying their existence, but the final report people are buzzing about- I don’t see that happening. But if he’s got a report coming up that didn’t include anything about what BuazzFeed reported would have set their base into the streets unless Mueller shut it down. I am leaning toward the Canary Trap, and I’m wondering who in the FBI recently moved onto the investigation team and might be reviewing files and latching on to incomplete investigative threads…I said elsewhere that I think the leakers (‘two senior FBI’ officials, according to BuzzFeed) leaked the Cohen in Prague tidbit, which got them the wrong kind of notice and led to the setting of the trap. They took the bait. They really did tell the BuzzFeed reporters exactly what was reported, so BuzzFeed is not lying with their very forceful defense of their reporting.

      Or it could be some sort of bizarre ‘black on black’ disinformation campaign like Saddam Hussein used – telling one general that they absolutely had WMD’s then telling another general they absolutely didn’t have them. But that’s some multi dimensional thinking that I’m not awake enough to deal with right now.

        Mueller does not have unlimited powers to continue on as special counsel for as long as he wants to. Should Barr be confirmed as the new AG, I believe he’ll have Mueller wind it down. It’s doing great harm to the country and has been ever since Mueller and his goon squad were appointed. When taking facts into consideration, something that the FBI and DOJ are not know to do, but instead preferring to go on nothing but lies and deception(Steele Dossier), Mueller should NEVER have been appointed in the first place. What should have been done, is for Sessions to have appointed a special counsel to investigate the shenanigans going on at the DOJ, FBI and the White House during Obama’s term, as well as all the criminal things Hildabeast was involved in and the attempts to cover it up.

          It looks to me like Mueller’s pattern is to throw out some red meat whenever there is a ‘review’ on keeping it going. I mean, we all know that the Resistance is not going to let him close up shop. What Mueller wants isn’t the issue, the issue is those who hate Trump and are determined to get rid of him or die trying. His job is to drag it out and make it as painful as possible for Team Trump. Every once in a while the procedures require some sort of ‘review’ or status update and when he has one of those come up he puts on a little show to justify his existence.

            The AG has the authority to limit the scope of Mueller’s investigation, something Sessions didn’t do but should have. Okay, so he recused himself because he was involved with Trump’s campaign. That doesn’t mean he couldn’t have limited the SC investigation to the Trump campaign and possible Russian collusion. Instead, Sessions didn’t do that, gave Rosenstein the authority to appoint and oversee Mueller, and as we all know, Rosenstein pretty much gave Mueller and his goon squad authority to do what they wanted, including digging into things that didn’t have anything to do with Russian collusion or Trump’s campaign.

            Also, thanks to both wimps, Sessions and Rosenstein, Mueller hired nothing but democrat political hacks for his team, something that never should have been allowed. This whole thing has been nothing but a farce from day one.

              Let’s hope that if Barr is appointed as the new AG, that he will neuter Mueller and his goon squad as to what they can and cannot do. This has gone long enough, too long as far as I’m concerned.

      “Weird,” I agree Latina. My first thought after hearing about the debunking was that Mueller is attempting to appear unbiased. And IMO, he sure isn’t!

      I dunno. What stands out to me is that the word “inaccurate” (which has a variation of meanings). Why not simply say it was false.

    So, as Sundance has taught us, context is very important. Cohen is about to testify to Congress. This leak/false story, whatever, is designed to direct the questioning to support a new anti-Trump narrative.

    I think that story getting out about Mueller’s #2 knowing about the dossier has him a little uptight also.

    Here’s another angle to all of this. With the left fearing that Mueller has nothing on PDJT (because there is no there, there), they will now move to accuse Mueller of covering up evidence that the left claims (i.e.wants) to be there because, afterall, he’s a republican. Once someone stops being useful to the left, they will turn on them in a heartbeat.

    The left isn’t going to let go of muh Russia regardless of what comes out of Mueller’s report.

      The “Left” always eats their own, especially when they are no longer useful, turn on them or appear to turn on them. The NAZI, who are part of the “Left”, did the same thing to the SA once they were no longer useful.

    After seeing the stories the MSM has used to fill the void, I suspect Mueller pulled this story until next week because it was major distraction from other planned SJW activities this weekend. The democrats may also be saving this to release on the day of the State of the Union Address.

    Make no mistake, Mueller knew this was coming and was part of the leak.

    We now know Whittaker is par for he course, useless. Let’s see what Barr has in mind when he is finally approved to take office.

    Great article by REX on “desperate Michael Cohen” who was at best, exploiting his relationship with Trump with the Ukrainians and at worst, setting Trump up for Russiagate. As I have said before, it is curious that Mueller is dropping the dime on all the snakes around Trump. At least this is one way to look at. https://www.quodverum.com/2019/01/19/a-des-erate-man-michael-cohen.html

    I don’t trust Mueller or his SC; he is on defense with this Buzz Feed drama story. Maybe the SC does not want a Justice Department investigation into leaking? F.Lee Levin put forth this idea and it makes sense to me : “Imagine how this would go, Mr. Weissmann, have you ever spoken to the press…” .

    This may be the reason for Mueller’s truthfulness regarding Buzz Feed.

    “Now we have a second major revelation involving Fusion GPS, and that is that Mueller officials were actually holding conversations with Fusion GPS in 2016 before the fake dossier paid for by Hillary and connected to Hillary was even put out.”

    Note: this was extracted from a story at Puppet String News.

    We all know that “Buzz Feed” was the first to release the Dossier and Mr. Weissmann was involved with construction of this same Dossier in August 2016 well before it was released by “Buzz Feed”. Add to this that Mr. Weissmann is a key member of the SC.

    I can only wonder why the President has not taken the SC to the Supreme Court and have them agree with shutting it down as part of a seditious act by Hillary Clinton.

    This whole thing is SO OFFENSIVE!! They had a terrorist-sympathizer in the Oval Office for 8 years, a crime syndicate running the State Dept, and various other blutocrats with un-American loyalties in the IC and DOJ ~ but NOT A PEEP! I guess the IC did a really good job with the blackmail scheme. This revolution needs to get going ~ the voter fraud should be rectified so we can remove these fraud marxists, eliminate all those on furlough, shut down the CIA, FBI, DOJ, AND eliminate all SES members (they ARE the deep state) by changing their salary to $1/year, and break the back of that union. This govt is too big and too corrupt. That scum Strzok is STILL working with the CIA, with access to classified info! Hey, Strzok: I’d rather smell like the Trump supporters in Wal-Mart than like the rear of a mullah’s robe like you! Dung-beetle.

    I really “enjoyed” the montage of all of the talking heads uttering the word bombshell. My Gawd. So glad I never bear actual witness (turn on my TV) to see any of this bullshit, I just smirk at it vicariously. I’m not the smartest person in the room, far from it. But I have never had trust in the methods and the motives of the Special Counsel and the members of the team. But it would have made MUCH sense to me if the SC team, acting to investigate the President, the members had been VETTED just like a jury is selected. IT IS TOO STRANGE that this SC Team ended up with so many BAD actors that Captain Obvious Mueller wasn’t even aware of (supposedly) until IG Horowitz put out there on a platter.
    I do believe there will be an end to Mueller’s endless colonoscopy into the internal workings of President Trump. Whatever his report puts down in words I think it will go down in history as another “there was only a single gunmen who shot JFK,” Saddam really did have weapons of mass destruction, etc.
    Why Mueller peeped up about this latest from Buzzfeed is not sitting well with me. That Mueller has come out of his “cone of silence” to debunk something in the news, when he has not let loose his granite jaw for anything else in this ENDLESS SAGA bugs me. Can’t put my finger on why.
