Donald Trump Jr., in an exclusive interview with Fox News's Ingraham Angel on Monday night, again accused Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Agency, of organizing a series of inaccurate leaks aimed at damaging the White House, saying he is 99.9% accidentally, he is the person who ran my testimony, as I testified "in 2017.
Trump Jr. also compares BuzzFeed's discredged article on Thursday claiming that President Trump has made Michael Cohen mislead Congressional media coverage this weekend around a widely documented meeting near the Lincoln Memorial involving several activists from Colombian professor shouting homophobic insults and an Indian.
"You had a few Catholic students who were on the right march, right? They were wearing a hat on the MAGA, "said Trump Jr.. "They had to throw themselves up because the media want it to be true, they want a bunch of good Catholics – to be white – they want to be enemies."
Many liberal and conservative commentators criticized the students – and in some cases urged them to be personally bullied and school closed – based on initial, incomplete videos at the meeting just to return their comments after a fuller video that the students themselves have been subjected to harassment, and that students do not turn to the Indian man or activists at any time.

Following the publication of the BuzzFeed article, some commentators and leading Democrats said it had raised the opportunity for the president to be beheaded if it were accurate.
"It must be true, Laura," Trump jr added. "They have been pushing this stupidity for two years, they have not found anything … If you're not sure it's true, do not press it for 14 hours straight."
He continued, "This is not the first time it happened. You saw him as soon as I showed, and they said, "Oh, Donald Trump Jr. had information about WikiLeaks," because Adam Schiff probably missed it right afterwards. my testimony before them, and conveniently pulled it out in front of the four, turning the 14th into the 4th, which means I had it six days before the world saw it, unlike four days after the whole world saw it.
By the end of 2017, CNN's senior correspondent Manu Raju reported that Trump Jr. received early private access to WikiLeaks documents – a story that turned out to be completely untrue.
BuzzFeed News Investigative reporters Anthony Kormier and Jason Leopold created the discredited report on Thursday, referring to two law enforcement officials who said that Michael Cohen had admitted at the office of Special Attorney Muller that President Trump had told him to lie to Congress for a potential real estate deal in Moscow, claiming that the talks ended several months earlier to hide Trump's involvement.
The article claims that "internal emails, text messages, and cache of other documents" confirm Trump's instructions to Cohen. But Muller issued his first public statement after more than a year to reject the BuzzFeed report just one day later, claiming in a brief statement that BuzzFeed's story was "inaccurate."
Since then, the Washington Post has reported that Mueller believed that his rare rejection meant that the story was "almost totally incorrect" and that the special lawyer's office immediately "reviewed the evidence to determine whether there were any papers or interviews with witnesses such as those described, those who thought they could have a share in the case.
Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, told Fox News on Monday that his team had communicated to Muller's office last week for the BuzzFeed article, and agreed that a significant portion of it was untrue.
"They've been driving this stupidity for two years. They have found nothing.
"There are no texts and emails or other documents to confirm the BuzzFeed statement for the simple reason that this is not true," said Juliani to Fox News. – Whoever is responsible for this, is lying. He added, "We congratulate them for advocating the truth," referring to Muller's team.

Leopold has been involved in numerous scandals during his career related to his fake reports, including in 2002 for Salon.com for Enron, which he says is "stuffed with inaccuracies and misrepresentation" and another wrong story 2006 for Truthout.org It is supposed to be charged against former George Bush assistant Carl Rove.
In an interview with CNN on Sunday, Cormier refused to explain why Leopold claimed to have seen the documents proving that Trump had ordered Cohen to lie to Congress – contradicts the insistence of Cormier in a separate article interview on Friday that he was not personally documents.
"We can not get into the details there," said Kormier, sitting next to BuzzFeed News Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith, to CNN's Secure Sources, Brian Stellar. "We really can not go further than to endanger our sources."
Leopold did not appear in the interview, which occasionally became tense, as Stell openly criticized BuzzFeed's journalistic practices. Smith claims that Leopold, who was out of public space on Friday, is busy reporting.
In a Friday interview, Cormier told CNN, "No, I did not see him personally," when he asked if he had seen the documents mentioned in the story claiming Trump had told Cohen to lie.
Kormier merely claims that the two sources he quotes are "100% read from this aspect of the special lawyer's investigation."
However, Leopold, who spoke separately to MSNBC, noted that "I do not think we said we have not seen [the documents]"and clarify," I will say we have seen documents and we are informed. "

Leopold later suggested he wanted to say he had seen the documents, but that Cormier did not tell Mediaite: "Yes, Anthony said he did not personally see the documents."
Cormier added in an interview with Stelter on Sunday: "I have another confirmation that this is correct, we are told to stand in our place … The same sources we used in this story are behind him as we do. "
But Smith and Kormier also admitted they were not aware of the exact language Trump would use to instruct Cohen to lie. In the interview, Stelter also rejected Leopold's complimented request for a comment at Muller's office, sent only hours before the publication of the article, as "abandoning the post" from the publication.
President Trump called the BuzzFeed decision to publish the discredited article "shameful", and Vice President Mike Pens blamed Sunday that the media were "obsessed" with the removal of Trump.
"It was remarkable what we saw happening for 24 hours in the media, based on the report that appeared at BuzzFeed," Pens told Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace. "This is one reason why people are so disappointed by many in national media."
