Robert Mueller’s life took a dramatic turn because of what happened on this one day

Special Counsel Robert Mueller may have just struck gold.

His rigged witch hunt flailed about for 18 months.

But in just one night everything may have changed.

Buzzfeed set off a political shockwave across Washington with a bombshell report.

Reporters Jason Leopold and Anthony Cormier reported that special counsel Robert Mueller possessed documentary evidence that Donald Trump ordered Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about when a deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow fell apart.

Buzzfeed reports:

Now the two sources have told BuzzFeed News that Cohen also told the special counsel that after the election, the president personally instructed him to lie — by claiming that negotiations ended months earlier than they actually did — in order to obscure Trump’s involvement.

The special counsel’s office learned about Trump’s directive for Cohen to lie to Congress through interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents. Cohen then acknowledged those instructions during his interviews with that office.

This revelation is not the first evidence to suggest the president may have attempted to obstruct the FBI and special counsel investigations into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

But Cohen’s testimony marks a significant new frontier: It is the first known example of Trump explicitly telling a subordinate to lie directly about his own dealings with Russia.

There are several red flags with this story.

First, the reporter Jason Leopold has been found to report fake news in the past.

Second, no other media outlet has been able to confirm this reporting.

Finally, when Michael Cohen pled guilty to lying to Congress, he said he did so out of blind loyalty and not because he was ordered to do so by Trump.

This story has the potential to fizzle out like so many other supposed Trump “bombshells.”

    Greatest President in several decades. And you can’t accept that. He’s corrected almost all of obummer’s screw ups and attempt to destroy America! You lost and Ginsburg is finished. Trump will appoint another justice and the conservative rule by law and the constitution will be in force for a very long time!!

  3. Pat says:

    All you anti-Trump armchair quarterbacks are a hoot. We could combine all of your comments into one and still not find a shred of truth. President Trump is being allowed to live rent free in your heads and you’re not even smart enough to realize it. ????

  4. Pat says:

    You’re watching waaaaay too much CNN, MSNBC and BUZZFEED.. You’ve let them blind you to the truth.

  5. Fact the wall according to the Dems is a waste of money. OK it s true. and so is at least 2 trillion dollars of the rest of the budget, lets get rid of it, and the tax payers will all be better off.

  6. Groege says:

    sorry if he did not run for president, no would care who he paid to sleep with him. There is no law that say it cannot be done. He is a business man and so building things in Russia is not against any laws. If dealing with Russia and China were illegal, most business people would be in jail know. Get your facts correct.

    LIES LIES LIES

  8. Steve Richards says:

    Exactly. Words, at least in this instance might actually mean what they mean. Inaccurate doesn’t infer it’s a COMPLETE lie. To that end….Mueller didn’t say anything was untrue. Then again Mueller hadn’t said much either way. The real question here is. With all the leaks in Washington, if they really had sonething….we’d have heard something by now….!

  9. Dr. J.D. says:

    You are just spreading right-wing propaganda. Trey Gowdy: ““You’ll never hear me refer to [the] Russia [investigation] as a hoax or a witch hunt. I’ve always said Mueller should be given the time, independence and resources to complete the job he was assigned,” Gowdy said, adding that “it is in our country’s best interest for Mueller to complete the investigation as soon as possible.”
    AND . . .
    President Donald Trump’s attorney general nominee, William Barr, told a Senate panel Tuesday he would not interfere with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Barr later added, “I don’t believe Mr. Mueller would be involved in a witch hunt.”

    As you will notice, Brenda, when you tell the Truth about Trump, the most common reaction is just to call that person “stupid” or “ignorant” or to foolishly claim that information comes from MSM or some other source that is not trusted. Instead of calling people like Brenda names (ad hominem attacks), try to show evidence that Brenda is wrong – -whereas most of you have NOT! Deplorable Lanie tried to his/her credit.

    If you cannot see how terribly Trump has conducted international affairs, how he has been discovered this week advocating getting out of NATO (what Putin wants), the dropping of sanctions against a Russia mob boss (Deripaska), of trying to remove all sanctions on Russia but congress stopped him; of having FIVE secret meetings with Putin and demanding no evidence of what was said, illegally destroying notes on the meetings; of pulling out of joint military exercises with an ally, South Korea and getting NOTHING for it; of betraying our ally, the Kurds, and abandoning them by pulling out of Syria – – – almost all Trump’s international actions are EXACTLY what Putin wants.

  11. Timothy says:

    The actual evidence that Trump was involved in Cohen’s lie was taken from court papers of when Cohen plead guilty to lying to Congress – -and it did indicate that this was verified or corroborated with other evidence that Trump influenced Cohen to lie.

    This week there has been at least five major scandals about Trump surfacing, including how he illegal confiscated and destroyed the notes of the interpreter in one of his five meetings with Putin. Including his defrauding voters by saying he did not have business dealings with Russia, when he did. Including his numerous crimes of campaign laws with Cohen, and not mentioning the campaign and tax laws violated in paying off his mistresses. If Trump were not president, he would be indicted right now.

  12. reality check says:

    Excuse me Keith, Trump used the word “collusion” but the accurate legal term is “conspiracy” and IT IS CLEARLY ILLEGAL, EVEN NUNES TOLD DONORS THIS.

    #2. if Trump destroys everything at this point, will just mean more charges of “obstruction of justice,” of which he has plenty already.

    #3. Trump LIED continually about have “NO business in Russia” with the latest evidence showing clearly that he was working a deal for Trump Moscow, which would have meant hundreds of millions of dollars for him. He also gets millions from Saudi Arabia business bribes, and refuses to do anything about brutal MURDER by Saudi Prince. Trump also continually violates the emoluments clause by his millions taken in at his DC hotel, which he should have divested himself from by law, along with other deals worth millions by Jared and Ivanka.

    Truth is in the eye of the beholder.
    Everyone is right in their own eyes
    But all spirits are tested by God.
    Just who is innocent until Proven to be guilty???

  14. Jerry Oxendine says:

    It backfired, didn’t it! These snivelin’ little el pinko, snot-nosed DUMMYCRATS are so DESPERATE to find SOMETHING–ANYTHING to hurt President Trump, and it BACKFIRED on ’em. Like so much of the other detritus put forth by these scumbags, it was a LIE, a cowardly lie!
