When Buzzfeed’s explosive report broke that Michael Cohen told the special counsel that he was directed by Trump to lie to Congress, we knew Trump would lose it. He did not fail to disappoint either in the Twittersphere.
On Friday evening, Trump took to Twitter to express his frustration with Buzzfeed’s reporting, which in all fairness has been disputed by even the special counsel. However, it’s important to note that Buzzfeed continues to stand behind its story 100 percent.
‘Remember it was Buzzfeed that released the totally discredited “Dossier,” paid for by Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democrats (as opposition research), on which the entire Russian probe is based! A very sad day for journalism, but a great day for our Country!’
So, let’s talk about this briefly. The Trump dossier, put together by Christopher Steele, alleged Trump had colluded with Russia and that Russia even had incriminating information on Trump.
There have been key parts of the dossier that have been confirmed, despite what Trump may want to tweet.
It has been confirmed Cohen traveled to Prague to meet with Russian officials.
Additionally, it was confirmed that Russian diplomat Mikhail Kalugin was a Russian spy.
The same dossier also alleged that Manafort worked for pro-Russia Ukrainians and received payments. We all know that has been confirmed.
Furthermore, the special counsel did not specifically note what parts of the Buzzfeed report were inaccurate.
Twenty-two minutes later, Trump took to Twitter again to add this:
‘Fake News is truly the ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!’
As you can expect, the reactions to Trump’s tweets were mixed You can check them out below.
