Tucker Carlson reacted Friday moments after Robert Mueller, through a spokesman, denied the veracity of a potentially damning Buzzfeed report about President Trump and his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel's office, said that 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."

Carlson reported that Buzzfeed's story claimed Trump told Cohen to lie to Congress about a plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. Trump has been accused of being too close with Russia's president, Vladimir Putin.

Both Buzzfeed's editor-in-chief and Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani responded to the news on Twitter:

Trump's critics pounced after the report broke Thursday night, arguing it could show Trump suborned perjury.

Carlson played audio from earlier Friday of Buzzfeed reporter Anthony Cormier, who said his sources are "rock solid" and that he stood behind this story "one hundred percent."

"Just unbelievable," Carlson said in response to the news.

"If you've been in television, you've seen a level of hysteria I've never seen in 25 years in Washington," he added.
