Fox News Host Greg Gutfeld: ‘It Doesn’t Matter’ If BuzzFeed Report on Trump is True

Fox News pundit Greg Gutfeld said “it doesn’t matter” if a report that President Donald Trump directed his former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress — a potential felony — is true, because his critics just want “one thing to stick” to the president.

BuzzFeed News dropped a bombshell story Thursday night that reported Trump directed Cohen to lie to Congress about plans to build a Trump tower in Moscow. Cohen has plead guilty to lying under oath about the deal. If the BuzzFeed News report is true, it would prove that Trump directed Cohen to commit a felony — which could be an impeachable offense.

“It doesn’t matter if the story is true or not,” Gutfeld said on The Five. “Because it was originally about collusion and it’s not even about that anymore.”

Gutfeld added the current reporting on Trump is an effort “to get one thing to stick” to the president.

UPDATE: Gutfeld clarified through a spokesperson that he meant it doesn’t matter if the BuzzFeed story is true or not to those touting such stories. This post has been updated to reflect his clarification.
