Elder Patriot – Last night BuzzFeed dropped the umpteenth bombshell guaranteeing that this time, really, really , really, this time for sure, they had the goods on Donald Trump. He was done, finished. Impeachment was imminent.
The radical leftist clickbait operation lit up the internet after they claimed two unnamed (funny that) law enforcement officers told them there was absolute proof that President Trump had ordered Michael Cohen – his personal attorney at the time) – to lie about the termination date of a building deal deal in Russia.
We didn’t report about it earlier because we saw it as one more round of hysterical media bullshit – for multiple reason.
First, Columbia Journalism Review had previously declared the lead reporter for the story a serial fabulist.
Second, Donald Trump Jr., had already testified before Congress on this real estate deal. And, the junior Trump had already told Congress that the deal was still alive 6 months after the date Cohen’s supposedly told investigators it ended.
Third, BuzzFeed offered no evidence even though they told MSNBC they had seen “documents” including texts, emails, documents, and transcripts with other witnesses within the Trump organization.
“We have seen documents. We have been briefed on documents. We are very confident in our reporting," BuzzFeed News reporter Jason Leopold, who co-wrote bombshell new report, says. pic.twitter.com/5RXOx8rvo0

Except, Donald Trump doesn’t use email and he doesn’t text message.
Finally, we wondered why in the world would anyone consider Michael Cohen a reliable source? He’s facing three years in prison for a myriad of crimes including for lying to prosecutors. The reason he’s only facing three years in prison is because he agreed to work with the special counsel.
Kevin Corke, @FoxNews “Don’t forget, Michael Cohen has already been convicted of perjury and fraud, and as recently as this week, the Wall Street Journal has suggested that he may have stolen tens of thousands of dollars….” Lying to reduce his jail time! Watch father-in-law!

None of this stopped House Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) from immediately blasting the story across Twitter in a typically irresponsible act for the Marxist flamethrower.
The allegation that the President of the United States may have suborned perjury before our committee in an effort to curtail the investigation and cover up his business dealings with Russia is among the most serious to date. We will do what’s necessary to find out if it’s true. https://t.co/GljBAFqOjh

After that, the torch-Trump Demonrats came out of their holes after that:
If the @BuzzFeed story is true, President Trump must resign or be impeached.

Well, a funny thing happened once the special counsel had a chance to review the BuzzFeed report.
A spokesperson for special counsel Robert Mueller released this statement only minutes ago:
“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.”

If I didn’t know better I’d think Trump’s enemies are getting desperate… very desperate. But, that couldn’t be true, could it be?
And, a side note: If we ever wrote such blatantly unsubstantiated claims against a Trump opponent, Facebook would suspend us. Then again, we don’t have to resort to inventing things because their crimes are legendary.
Facebook, we’re waiting for BuzzFeed’s reach to magically disappear the way ours has.
