Rudy Giuliani Speaks to Mueller’s Team About Buzzfeed Article
0

Rudy Giuliani confirmed to Fox News earlier today that he has been in communication with Robert Mueller’s team about Buzzfeed’s recent controversial article. Among other things, the article alleges President Trump instructed Michael Cohen to lie to congress. Robert Mueller’s team released a statement late Friday saying the article was “not accurate.”

Until their comments about the Buzzfeed article on Friday, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office has not made a public statement in over a year. While speaking to Fox, Giuliani commended Mueller’s team for speaking out against the article. He went on to say those responsible for the article are lying.

The Special Counsel investigation began nearly two years ago, in May of 2017. The Special Counsel was launched to investigate allegations of coordination between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. A special counsel investigation is generally overseen by the Attorney General but Jeff Sessions chose to recuse himself.

President Trump has expressed frustration numerous times about then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to recuse himself. The president’s legal team has been highly critical of the nearly two-year-long investigation. They say the Special Counsel has carried on for long enough, and that all the resulting charges have nothing to do with collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia.

Although many in the media have made claims as to when the Special Counsel investigation will finally present their findings, that information is unlikely to have leaked from Mueller’s team. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office has so far seemingly prevented any information from being leaked to the press. The absence of leaked information is highly unusual for a political investigation, but that hasn’t prevented many in the media from wildly speculating about potential developments.
