Radio and television host Mark Levin blasted Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office for its statement regarding the inaccurate BuzzFeed report about President Donald Trump.

While reactions poured in on the “rare public statement” from Mueller’s office following the report which claimed Trump directed his former attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress, Levin argued that it was only to “cover their a**es.”

“They didn’t do anybody any favor,” Levin told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on “Hannity” Friday, referring to the statement released by the special counsel’s office earlier Friday evening, following a day filled with calls to impeach the president over the revelations in the report.

“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,” Mueller spokesman Peter Carr said, apparently vindicating Trump and dousing the firestorm created by the initial article.

But Levin slammed the special counsel’s office for issuing the statement later in the evening while sitting back all day as liberal media outlets tripped over each other to prove to America that the president should be impeached.

“They sat there all day long while this false reporting was going on, while the president was being smeared, while the reporters, so-called, and their friendly Democrats on Capitol Hill were saying this is an impeachable offense,” the  “Life, Liberty & Levin” host said.

“They didn’t release this rare statement just because they’re good people,” Levin said of Mueller’s office. “They released it to cover their a**es because they don’t want a leak investigation.”

Levin argued that the Justice Department should have launched a leak investigation into the report because if the information the BuzzFeed reporters claimed was true, “the only place these documents, texts and emails could have come from was Mr. Mueller’s office.”

He pointed out that a leak investigation would have pointed right back at the special counsel’s office, which they certainly would not have wanted.

Levin also slammed the media which he said “disgraced themselves” with reporting on the BuzzFeed story, and called on outlets like CNN and MSNBC to “clean house” and have their executives “get off their high horses” and stop trying to take down Trump.

“It’s all intended to drive toward impeachment,” Levin said, adding that these attacks on Trump in the media are “dragging down the Republic by dragging down our president.”

“You want to try to take him out, wait for the next election,” he said, calling out the report as an example of “yellow journalism.”
