Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office rarely issues press statements. When they do, it is generally a dry follow-up after high-profile actions have been taken by the Justice Department, or routine announcement of legal filings. When Mueller’s team makes an announcement that fits neither of the above criterial, people following the ongoing investigation into wrongdoing within Donald Trump’s presidential campaign should take notice:

This statement, given to The Washington Times, a pro-Trump outlet which routinely takes aim at reports hostile to the President, struck a different tone.

The spokesman said:

“What I have been telling all reporters is that many stories about our investigation have been inaccurate.

“Be very cautious about any source that claims to have knowledge about our investigation and dig deep into what they claim before reporting on it.

“If another outlet reports something, don’t run with it unless you have your own sourcing to back it up.”

In other words, the Trump-loving Moonie Times is fooling readers with uncorroborated fake news, and it very well may come back to bite them in the tochas in a manner that is not only publicly humiliating but legally precarious.

We’re sure that Trump’s press  Sarah Huckabee Sanders has also taken note (hint hint).
