Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it's first reported.

Robert Maxwell acquires the U.K.’s Daily Mirror and five other British newspapers. 

One of his new writers, Joe Haines, says he can prove the new owner is a crook and a liar. Since Maxwell promises not to interfere in reporting, Haines probably thinks he can get away with publishing his story.

Instead, Maxwell turns Haines to the “dark side.” Haines becomes a loyal supporter of Maxwell and even writes his authorized biography.
