I haven’t read the entire Mueller report yet, but after reviewing the highlights the one thing it clearly shows is that the news media was right more often than not about what was happening with the Trump campaign and White House.

There were many examples where President Trump pronounced a news story as “fake news,” but on Thursday the Mueller report proved that the story was indeed true.

What was especially alarming was the testimony of the president’s press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, that she based her characterization that many people in the FBI had lost faith on James Comey – she told the media this in a press briefing - on nothing in particular.

She made it up.

There is some great journalism being done in covering the Trump administration and its misdeeds.

It’s not a crime to be lying to the American people.

It’s not a crime to lie to a journalist.

Maybe it should be.
