Veteran journalist Bob Woodward, whose reporting on the Watergate scandal helped force former President Richard Nixon's resignation, told The New York Times on Sunday that he is “thankful” he doesn't have to cover the Russia probe on a daily basis.

“I say to you on the record, I am thankful I don’t have to cover this story on a daily basis,” said Woodward. He added that “the hydraulic pressure in the system is just so great. The impatience of the internet - ‘give it to us immediately’ - drives so much, it’s hard to sort something like this out."

Woodward’s comments appeared in a Times article on the aftermath of a recent BuzzFeed News story that claimed President Donald Trump had told his former attorney, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower project in Moscow. 

However, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office took the unusual step of disputing the report, saying that “BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office... are not accurate."

BuzzFeed has stood by the story following the denial from the special counsel’s office, with both editor in chief Ben Smith and the article’s author, Anthony Cormier, saying that the report is accurate.
