A spokesperson working for special counsel Robert Mueller has released a stern warning about the mainstream media’s “many” fake news reports regarding the current investigation into President Donald Trump and Russian collusion, reports the Washington Times.
The statement from Mueller’s camp didn’t single out any particular stories. But the Washington Times reports the warning came just after media inquiries about a McClatchy News story last Friday that said Mr Mueller has solid evidence that President Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, did, in fact, travel to Prague in 2016 as alleged by the Christopher Steele dossier.
“What I have been telling all reporters is that many stories about our investigation have been inaccurate,” the Mueller spokesperson said. “Be very cautious about any source that claims to have knowledge about our investigation and dig deep into what they claim before reporting on it. If another outlet reports something, don’t run with it unless you have your own sourcing to back it up.”
If this turned out to be true, it would then validate an important fact in what is known as the Steele Dossier, the widely discredited document paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and manufactured by a foreigner to smear Donald Trump with the false claim that he colluded with Russia to rig the 2016 election.
Cohen has already provided documents to prove he wasn’t in Prague. He also claims he has never been to Prague.
This did not stop the mainstream media from going nuts with a report based on “anonymous sources.”
