Mark Levin is claiming success for forcing this statement from Mueller due to Levin demanding the Justice Department force Mueller and his team to submit to a polygraph as they were the only possible origin of the Buzzfeed reports.

I do believe Levin is why they had to issue the statement, as it was just 30-minutes after his demands that Mueller issued the statement.

Andrew McCarthy: Debunking BuzzFeed and the wages of investigative secrecy

BuzzFeed published an explosive allegation that the president of the United States ordered his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to lie to congressional committees investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. Specifically, in a news story sourced to two anonymous law-enforcement officials said to be “involved in an investigation of the matter,” the site reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had learned, though multiple witnesses and documents, of President Trump’s alleged instruction to Cohen; subsequently, upon being confronted by prosecutors, Cohen had supposedly admitted that Trump gave the order.

As a rule, Mueller does not comment on press reports about his probe. Yet, in a highly unusual move Friday night, the prosecutor refuted the story by reporters Jason Leopold and Anthony Cormier. Through a spokesman, Mueller asserted:

I knew it was a fake coming from Michael Cohen. He is a flake.
