Thanks to investigative reporters, the public learned a lot about the Trump-Russia scandal long before special counsel Robert Mueller issued his report. But the report itself reveals that he knew much more. The latest update to the Trump-Russia Timeline at Dan Rather’s News & Guts and at Just Security. incorporates new information from Volume I of Mueller’s report.

Coming soon: Updates based on Volume II (Obstruction).

Here’s a complete list of the Volume I items. The individual entry titles alone tell a story. Interspersing them with the existing Timeline entries makes the saga even more fascinating. And it’s not a narrative of innocence.
