Giuliani Reacts to Statement from Mueller’s Office: The Press’ ‘Hysterical Desire to Destroy’ Trump Has Gone Too Far

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani praised Robert Mueller‘s office tonight for putting out a statement pushing back on BuzzFeed’s reporting, and he went on a tear against the media.

Mueller spokesman Peter Carr said in a statement, “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.”

So far the President himself has been going on a retweet spree, but Giuliani tweeted tonight, “I commend Bob Mueller’s office for correcting the BuzzFeed false story that Pres. Trump encouraged Cohen to lie. I ask the press to take heed that their hysterical desire to destroy this President has gone too far. They pursued this without critical analysis all day. #FAKENEWS”

He also called on the DOJ to “reveal the leakers”:

BuzzFeed is standing by its report.
