According to the New York Times, Donald Trump almost fired Speical Counsel Robert Mueller over a Fake News report.


In the hours that followed Mr. Trump’s initial anger over the Deutsche Bank reports, his lawyers and advisers worked quickly to learn about the subpoenas and ultimately were told by Mr. Mueller’s office that the reports were not accurate, leading the president to back down.

This report appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Reuters and Bloomberg on Dec. 5.
