He told Cohen to give FALSE testimony about building a Trump Tower Moscow, aka the Moscow Project.

There's a reason Mueller had Cohen plead guilty to THIS crime.

It's #WitnessTampering + #Obstruction.
#WATCH: Barr said a President suborning perjury would be #Obstruction.

Q: "A president persuading a person to commit perjury would be obstruction. Is that right?"

Barr: "Yes."

Q: "...a president...convincing a witness to change testimony would be obstruction...?"

Barr: "Yes."
#REDFLAG: Mueller's Office takes the rare step of PUSHING BACK on Buzzfeed News' reporting.

They seem to dispute the "description" and "characterization" of corroborating documents and testimony in the article.

But not necessarily the central premise...

#FTR: Trump hasn't yet said anything himself claiming victory over Buzzfeed News' reporting...

But he has RT'd RWNJs, including one who said "More Buzzfeed B.S." - but BFN has had incredibly reliable reporting and won every lawsuit for publishing the mostly corroborated Dossier.
#NEW: BuzzFeed News' Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith says they stand by they reporting and urges the Special Counsel to specify exactly what parts they're disputing.

On TV, Ben Smith just said that the reporters are CURRENTLY working on more to THIS story...
#NOTE: Ken Dilanian has caught something important.

Mueller said Cohen made "false statements...in accordance with Client-1's DIRECTIVES" in the sentencing memo.


Cohen lied to Congress, AS DIRECTED by Trump.
#ALSO: Worth noting that this is another totally valid read of the 11/30 Cohen Sentencing Memo line highlighted above...

Unlike G. Conway, however, I don't believe it's "clearly" referencing the payments ONLY...as Mueller specifically says "in EACH each."
#NEW: BuzzFeed News says they've RE-confirmed their story since last night, in an updated statement.

Ik it's not likely, but I wish Mueller's office would specify the inaccuracies.

This news is too important for Trump supporters to claim victory over...
#RELATED: The duo that helped take down Nixon and expose Watergate to the public, Woodward and Bernstein, made a big mistake once.

The Washington Post was disparaged by the WH.

But they weren't fired nor did they lose respect. They continued reporting.
