Just when you thought you had seen it all — on Friday the Special Counsel’s office released a statement declaring that the latest “bombshell” story about Trump was a total hoax — you know, like the hoax Russian dossier that got the ball rolling on the destroy-Trump bandwagon.
I don’t have time to recite all the nonsense leveled against Trump, but rest assured, when the attack comes from Ben Smith and Buzzfeed, it is probably not just nonsense but utter nonsense. In the 2012 election, I broke a story about Obama’s education at Harvard being funded by an Arab billionaire, and Ben Smith personally “debunked” my story without actually explaining away the facts I presented. You can read about that in Part 2 of “Why We Needed Trump.”
In this case, Smith and his known fabricator of news Jason Leopold reported that President Trump had directed his attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about a proposed hotel project in Moscow.
Not true, said Mueller’s office. Not that it came as any surprise to people with brains. The anonymously “sourced” story was just the latest Deep State attempt to take down the president.
