On Friday night, a bombshell report was released as Special Councel Robert Mueller’s office, in a rare move, commented on a BuzzFeed News report circulating about President Donald J. Trump.

The Buzzfeed report, released Thursday, cited two unnamed federal law enforcement officials who said Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, told Mueller’s office that Trump instructed him to lie to Congress about an abandoned real estate deal to build a Trump Tower in Russia.

Mueller’s office responded to the report on Friday night.

“BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” said spokesperson Peter Carr.

Shortly after Carr’s statement was released, Trump retweeted several posts from others who were commenting on the revelation.

Later in the evening, a tweet directly referencing the report said: “Remember it was Buzzfeed that released the totally discredited ‘Dossier,’ paid for by Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democrats (as opposition research), on which the entire Russian probe is based! A very sad day for journalism, but a great day for our Country!”

He then tweeted: “Fake News is truly the ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!”

Trump also retweeted a post from his son, Donald Trump Jr. Trump Jr. posted a video of clips of President Trump, captioned, “Very proud to have a President do what what he said he was going to do. For decades now @realdonaldtrump has been signaling the alarm against the hollowing out of America. Other countries have been “Dumping” and screwing over America for too long. Time to get tough!”

President Trump commented in his retweet: “Just a son who loves his Dad. Nice!”
