President Trump responded with a flurry of tweets Friday and Saturday to Friday evening's news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller denied a BuzzFeed News report alleging his investigation had compiled evidence Trump directed Michael Cohen, his former personal attorney, to lie to Congress about the Moscow Trump Tower project. Many of Trump's posts were retweets from friendly voices like his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., and commentators Geraldo Rivera and Dan Bongino. In his own tweets, Trump called the BuzzFeed report "disgraceful" and blamed it for a "very sad day for journalism." He also tweeted on familiar topics including the Steele Dossier, the stock market, immigration, and his perceived persecution at the hands of the press.
