How do you think Mueller is going to explain this…
The Mueller Report contains a transcript of a voicemail by an attorney for Donald Trump to an attorney for former national security adviser Michael Flynn, that is edited to look incriminating.
The transcript is in the second part of the report where Mueller attempted to pretend President Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice.
If you look at the text of the voice mail that the Mueller Report chose to publish, it gives an entirely different impression from the full transcript.
This is a November 2017 voice mail message left by Trump’s attorney John Dowd for Flynn’s attorney, Rob Kelner:
I understand your situation, but let me see if I can’t state it in starker terms. . . . [I]t wouldn’t surprise me if you’ve gone on to make a deal with … the government. … [I]f . .. there’s information that implicates the President, then we’ve got a national security issue, . . . so, you know, . . . we need some kind of heads up. Um, just for the sake of protecting all our interests if we can …. [R]emember what we’ve always said about the ‘ President and his feelings toward Flynn and, that still remains ….
But here is the full transcript which includes the parts crooked Mueller didn’t want you to see:
Hey, Rob, uhm, this is John again. Uh, maybe, I-I-I-‘m-I’m sympathetic; I understand your situation, but let me see if I can’t … state it in … starker terms. If you have … and it wouldn’t surprise me if you’ve gone on to make a deal with, and, uh, work with the government, uh … I understand that you can’t join the joint defense; so that’s one thing. If, on the other hand, we have, there’s information that … implicates the President, then we’ve got a national security issue, or maybe a national security issue, I don’t know … some issue, we got to-we got to deal with, not only for the President, but for the country. So … uh … you know, then-then, you know, we need some kind of heads up. Um, just for the sake of … protecting all our interests, if we can, without you having to give up any … confidential information. So, uhm, and if it’s the former, then, you know, remember what we’ve always said about the President and his feelings toward Flynn and, that still remains, but — Well, in any event, uhm, let me know, and, uh, I appreciate your listening and taking the time. Thanks, Pal.
If you look at the full transcript, Dowd is very specific about not wanting any “confidential information.”
Dowd was furious over what Mueller did.
“This is clearly a baseless, political document designed to smear and damage the reputation of counsel and innocent people,” Dowd said.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) described Mueller’s actions as an outright “fraud.”
