Mueller says Buzzfeed story on Trump 'not accurate'

A massive hemorrhage of Trump’s base’ Political journalist says Matt Drudge could be turning on the president Cohen Paid To Rig Polls For Trump With Cash In A Walmart Bag And A Boxing Glove

Michael Cohen allegedly paid off a small technology company to try to manipulate online polls in President Trump's favor - with a Walmart bag filled with cash and a boxing glove, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Then on Thursday night, BuzzFeed ran a story based on anonymous government sources that said Trump personally directed Cohen to lie to Congress about the president's push for a Moscow real estate project ahead of the 2016 election.

Fox News pundit Greg Gutfeld said "it doesn't matter" if a report that President Donald Trump directed his former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress - a potential felony - is true, because his critics just want "one thing to stick" to the president.

Deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley appeared on Fox News Friday and attacked a Buzzfeed report published earlier today, claiming Trump told his longtime attorney, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress about real estate dealings in Russian Federation.

Cohen pleaded guilty in November to lying to Congress to cover up that he was negotiating the Trump Tower project in Moscow on Trump's behalf during the heat of his presidential campaign.

BuzzFeed Editor in Chief Ben Smith wrote on Twitter that "we stand by our reporting and the sources who informed it, and we urge the Special Counsel to make clear what he's disputing".

The explosive BuzzFeed report came out around 10 p.m. on Thursday.

Cohen has said Trump had directed him to commit the campaign-finance violations, which Trump has denied.

Although the report has yet to be confirmed, if it is true, the U.S. president could be found guilty of perjury.

Cohen also has said he helped arrange payments at Trump's direction to silence women who claimed to have had affairs with Trump.

Michael Cohen arrives at his home in NY with his left arm in a sling supported by a pillow, January 18, 2019.

The cell phone data is significant because it lends at least a degree of credence to the Steele Dossier, which Trump supporters claim was improperly used to acquire a warrant for surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page as part of the FBI's investigation of Russian election interference. He is scheduled to testify before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on February 7.

"We have invited Michael Cohen back", Senator Mark Warner of Virginia told reporters Friday.

"These allegations may prove unfounded, but, if true, they would constitute both the subornation of perjury as well as obstruction of justice", Schiff said in a statement Friday morning. Giuliani is responding to a Buzzfeed News report saying that Trump directed Cohen to lie to Congress.

He was sentenced in NY for crimes including tax evasion, lying to Congress about the Trump tower, and arranging illicit payments to silence women who threatened Mr Trump's presidential campaign in 2016.

The Democratic chairmen of two House committees pledged Friday to investigate the report, which cites two unnamed law enforcement officials.

Cohen, who was the real estate billionaire's right-hand-man and fixer at the Trump Organization in NY at the time, pleaded guilty past year to charges that he violated campaign finance laws by arranging hush payments ahead of the 2016 election to women who claimed credibly to have had extramarital affairs with Trump.

Cohen, the special counsel's office and Cohen all declined to comment on BuzzFeed News' story.
