Special counsel disputes explosive report on Trump lawyer testimony

But following the story's publication late Thursday night, Democratic members of Congress began pointing to the report as grounds for the President's impeachment.

BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith said in a statement: "We stand by the reporting and the sources who informed it, and we urge the Special Counsel to make clear what he's disputing".

Mr Mueller's ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between Mr Trump's campaign and Moscow has been the subject of frequent stories and speculation.

"The New York Times has not independently confirmed the BuzzFeed report".

Earlier Friday Cohen returned to his Manhattan apartment Friday after getting medical treatment - with his arm appearing to be in a sling on a day President Trump and his team once again branded him a liar.

Rudy Giuliani, Mr. Trump's personal attorney, praised the special counsel for disputing the BuzzFeed story.

The website went on to report that Mueller's office learned about the alleged directive after speaking with numerous people from the Trump Organization and seeing company emails, text messages and numerous other documents.

The Middlesex London Health unit is urging Londoners to get their flu shot following the first death of the season. Unfortunately, 3 additional influenza-associated pediatric deaths were reported during Week #2.

In a report detailing Mueller's BuzzFeed rebuttal, the New York Times completely knocked the foundation from under BuzzFeed's story.

Worth noting, it's extremely rare the office of the special counsel to comment on the special counsel to comment on specific news stories.

Earlier, Ronan Farrow had tweeted his own misgivings about the BuzzFeed story, writing, 'I can't speak to Buzzfeed's sourcing, but, for what it's worth, I declined to run with parts of the narrative they conveyed based on a source central to the story repeatedly disputing the idea that Trump directly issued orders of that kind.

A White House spokesman did not specifically deny the report, but Trump, in a tweet, accused Cohen, who has cooperated with Mueller, of lying.

Davis said he not only wants to follow hie client's instructions, but to "honor and respect Bob Mueller".

Instead, he said, "I actually wanted to come on to talk about the President of the United States threatening a family..."

Giuliani noted that Cohen had pleaded guilty to lying and quoted federal prosecutors in NY who chastised him for a "pattern of lies and dishonesty over an extended period of time".

President Trump's nominee for attorney general, William Barr, is now undergoing confirmation in Congress.

"Our committee is already working to secure additional witness testimony and documents related to the Trump Tower Moscow deal and other investigative matters", said Intelligence Committee chairman Schiff.

"Any suggestion - from any source - that the president counseled Michael Cohen to lie is categorically false".

The criminal complaint does not allege that Mr. Trump or anyone else told Mr. Cohen to lie.

When asked three times on Fox News whether Trump instructed Cohen to lie to Congress, White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley refused to answer the question.

He also will face questions about it in testimony before the House Oversight Committee on February 7. Mueller's team, however, has called him a credible witness. That statement attracted attention given Barr's expansive views of presidential powers and his belief that presidents can't be scrutinized by prosecutors for acts the Constitution allows them to take.

New Report Reveals Trump’s Proposed Border Wall Compromise With Democrats
Leaders insisted Trump needs to open the government before beginning any negotiations over border security or barrier funding. It will be hard for the measure to get 60 votes needed to survive in the Senate, and it seems certain to die in the House.
