Mueller Report Exposes String Of Anonymously Sourced “Bombshell” Stories That Got It Wrong

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian meddling revealed a string of anonymously-sourced stories about the investigation were inaccurate.

BuzzFeed and McClatchy each added editor’s notes to two stories following the publication of the Mueller report, which also contradicted an explosive CNN report and called into further question a bombshell story in The Guardian.

The Mueller report directly contradicted a Jan. 18 BuzzFeed story alleging that Mueller had evidence President Donald Trump ordered Michael Cohen, his former attorney, to lie to Congress about his exploration of a potential Trump Tower Moscow deal in 2016.
