The Washington Post debunks the Cohen ‘story’.

In a rare move, Mueller’s office denies BuzzFeed report that Trump told Cohen to lie about Moscow project

Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s office on Friday denied an explosive report by BuzzFeed News that his investigators had gathered evidence showing President Trump directed his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress about a prospective business deal 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,” said Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller.

The statement was remarkable on several levels — first, the special counsel’s office speaks exceedingly rarely, and second, the statement seemed to drive a stake through a sensational allegation that Democratic lawmakers suggested earlier in the day could spell the end of the Trump presidency. As earthshaking as the claims in the story were, no other media organizations were able to match them.

How many times has false reports been spun up by the media, how many times have the media rushed to publish these type of stories with the “End of Trump Presidency!” headline?  How many times did Lucy hold the football for Charlie Brown and promise, “This time for sure, Charlie Brown!”.
