NEW YORK (AP) - President Donald Trump and his team love to deride unfavorable stories as "fake news." But it's clear from Robert Mueller's report that the special counsel isn't buying that.

While there are exceptions, Mueller's investigation repeatedly supports the news reporting that was done on the Russia probe over the last two years, and details several instances where the president and his team sought to mislead the public.

Whether that's enough to sway Trump's supporters remains unknown. They're still basking in the report's ultimate conclusion that the evidence doesn't support that the president or his team worked with the Russians to influence the 2016 election.
