Another thing that the Mueller report shows is that virtually every time Trump claimed that a story was “fake news,” the story was completely accurate.

One of the fascinating aspects of the Mueller report is that it chronicles dozens of instances in which Trump attempted interfere with investigations into him but was thwarted by White House aides either flat-out refusing to do his bidding or telling him they would and then just not following through.
