Giuliani: Trump legal team reached out to Mueller after BuzzFeed report

January 21, 2019

President Trump’s attorney Rudolph Giuliani told CNN Monday that the White House’s legal team reached out to special counsel Robert Mueller after a bombshell BuzzFeed report surfaced late last week.

The BuzzFeed report alleged that Mr. Trump directed his former attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the status of a Trump Tower project in Moscow.

After the report was released Thursday, Mueller spokesman Peter Carr issued a statement disputing the story.

Mr. Giuliani declined to tell CNN what the president’s legal team told Mr. Mueller’s team.

BuzzFeed has doubled down on the story since the Mueller statement. One of the report’s authors, Anthony Cormier, told CNN their reporting will ultimately be “borne out.”
