Just two days after Boris Johnson became prime minister, President Donald Trump personally urged the UK leader to help him in his quest to discredit the Mueller probe, The Times of London reports.
That call was just one day after Trump made his now-infamous extortion call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.
Trump has also called the prime minister of Australia for assistance in discrediting the FBI's and CIA's investigations into his actions and ties to Russia.
