WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A BuzzFeed News report that said U.S. President Donald Trump had directed his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress was false, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on Friday.

"Look, that's absolutely ridiculous," Sanders told reporters during a brief exchange on the White House driveway. She said Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani had addressed this subject and had said in a statement that the report was "categorically false."
