Flynn Filing Shows Mueller Team Manipulated Transcript in Report…

In the Michael Flynn sentencing phase Judge Emmet Sullivan requested the Mueller prosecution team provide records related to the case. [Backstory Here]

Among other evidence, the judge ordered the government to file on the public docket “the transcript of the voicemail recording” from President Trump’s attorney John Dowd to Michael Flynn.  The transcript of that voicemail recording was cited in the Mueller report as evidence that team Trump was trying to obstruct justice by shaping witness testimony. 

Today, the Mueller team released the transcript of the call (full pdf below). However, as originally noticed by RosieMemos the released transcript clearly shows the Mueller team  selectively edited the transcript to weaponized their portrayal of the contact. 

Compare the actual transcript [Source] to the Mueller Report [source]:

[Mueller Report, Volume II, pg 121]

Notice how Mueller leaves out (via edits) the context of the call, and the important qualifier: “without you having to give up any confidential information.”   Clearly Dowd does not want to interfere in Flynn’s cooperation with the special counsel, which is opposite to the twisted claim presented by Weissmann and Mueller’s report.

After attorney Techno Fog shared the new information with Mr. Dowd, Trump’s former attorney provided the following reply:

Additionally, there’s another sketchy aspect to the Mueller team filing today.

It is heavily suspected that Michael Flynn was under a FISA surveillance warrant which seems confirmed by the Weissmann/Mueller report. The FBI admitted to intercepting, recording and later transcribing the Flynn conversation with Russian Ambassador Kislyak.

Judge Sullivan worded his prior order to say: “and the transcripts of any other audio recordings of Mr. Flynn, including but not limited to, audio recordings of Mr Flynn’s conversations with Russian officials.”  It sure seemed like the judge was suspecting additional surveillance.

Within the earlier order, Judge Sullivan asked the DOJ to provide the transcript of the 12/29/16 call between Mike Flynn and Ambassador Kislyak.

Why is this important? Because it appears Judge Sullivan suspects the transcript of the phone call will match statements from Flynn to the FBI. Ergo: Flynn did not lie to the FBI.

Since reviewing the November 30th, 2017, pleading we’ve been pointing out how the FBI admits to intercepting the Flynn-Kislyak call, but the FBI never put a factual transcript in the court record. Why not?  {Go Deep}

Today the Mueller team responded to the request for a transcript from the Flynn/Kislyak call by refusing to provide it.

Look how carefully the Mueller team (Brandon Van Grack) worded this response about FBI recordings of Michael Flynn. Notice how they avoid production, by parsing, there are no recordings “that are part of the sentencing record”.

The recordings are part of the underlying case against Flynn, upon which the questioning took place. However, the FBI is claiming the recordings are not part of the prosecution for “lying to FBI investigators” aspect; therefore, no recordings will be produced.

It will be interesting to see if non-production is okay with Judge Sullivan.

Here’s the full production / non-production from today (Hat Tip Techno Fog):

 

BACKSTORY – The FBI knew the content of the Flynn call with Sergey Kislyak because they were listening in.  The FBI were intercepting those communications.  So when Pence said no-one had any contact on January 15th, the FBI crew IMMEDIATELY knew they had an issue to exploit.

We see the evidence of the FBI knowing they had an issue to exploit, and being very nervous about doing it, in the text messages between Lisa Page and FBI Agent Peter Strzok who would end up doing the questioning of Flynn.

The day before the Flynn interview:

January 23, 2017, the day before the Flynn interview, Lisa Page says: “I can feel my heart beating harder, I’m so stressed about all the ways THIS has the potential to go fully off the rails.” Weird!

♦Strzok replies: “I know. I just talked with John, we’re getting together as soon as I get in to finish that write up for Andy (MCCABE) this morning.” Strzok agrees with Page about being stressed that “THIS” could go off the rails… (Strzok’s meeting w Flynn the next day)

[We’re not sure who “John” is, but we know “Bill” is Bill Priestap, FBI Deputy Director in charge of Counterintelligence. And “Jen” is Jennifer Boone, FBI counterproliferation division]

So it’s the day before they interview Flynn.

Why would Page & Strzok be stressed about “THIS” potentially going off the rails?

The answer is simple: they knew the content of the phone call between Mike Flynn and Sergey Kislyak because they were listening in, and they were about to exploit the Pence statement to CBS.  In essence they were admitting to monitoring Flynn, that’s why they were so nervous.  They were planning and plotting with Andrew McCabe about how they were going to exploit the phone-tap and the difference in public statements by VP Mike Pence.

There’s a good possibility Flynn was honest but his honesty contradicted Pence’s national statement on CBS; and Flynn likely tried to dance through a needle without being overly critical of VP-elect Pence misspeaking.   Remember, the alternative: if Flynn is brutally honest, the media now runs with a narrative about Vice-President Pence as a national liar.  (read more)

    How long will the inquisitive and concerned be stuck on this roller coaster ride? The refusal by the DOJ to release all of the audios and transcripts to Flynn’s tirade prone Judge Sullivan has darkened an otherwise good news day. Is the withheld info exculpatory or inculpatory for Flynn’s defense or damaging and embarrassing to Weissmann/Mueller. What evasive tricks and obfuscations are going on now at the DOJ?

    When will A/G Barr be back in the swamp? He is the last great hope for a fair and just end to this scandalous chapter in U.S.History. Or will it all end in a disappointing, Hillary nothing burger, DOJ whimper?

        absolutely no actions taken.
        The Swamp takes care of its own.
        POTUS + AG Barr + 65 M POTUS voters alone are not strong enough to overcome The Swamp. If they were then they would not allow Christopher Wray/Dan Coats/Judges to delay release of info that would send these critters to Gitmo.

        I love POTUS and I like Mr.Barrs words but , I think this whole thing is a Huber type head fake. No action ultimately….just mistakes made by good people blah blah blah… need to change some procedures…better training blah blah blah

        The Swamp ( some of whom really do believe they are the Guardians) will outlast POTUS and re-emerge in 2025.
        The actions needed to drain the swamp are massive >

        1. Make all censorship illegal + set rules om media ownership.
        2. Indict media figures who KNOWINGLY publish false info on ANY candidate.
        3. A national corruption czar to review media/DNC/RINO corruption and confiscate all assets of all proven guilty. + examine all political funding.
        4. Build the Wall
        5.Destroy the Clinton foundation (pay to play).
        6. Jail the corrupt FISA court members.

        7.Ensure equal justice/rule of law > remove current 2 tier justice system that protects Dems + DOJ/CIA/FBI bureaucrats.

        etc. IT IS A BIG BIG BIG LIST and will tie up AMERICA for a DECADE to fix this.
        Only Donald Trump has the courage and will to do it, but he will run out of time.
        The swamp have already killed 2/3 of Presidency…they are BRILLIANT and folks should recognize that whilst battles can and will be won the WAR cannot if it continues to be fought under current rules and at current PACE.
        The massively corrupt US Media is owned by the swamp and must be vastly weakened /made more objective somehow. I do not pretend to know how that can be done to The Peoples satisfaction but if it is not the Swamp will win.

    It appears to me that Judge Sullivan suspects OR knows there was prosecutorial and/or investigative MISCONDUCT. He could have accepted Flynn’s plea OVER a year ago. It seems to me he is giving the so-called prosecutor(s) more rope to hang themselves. At this juncture, he EITHER files another ORDER demanding the info previously requested OR drops his pursuit for the TRUTH.

      Liberty ONE;
      No, I don’t believe he could. He had both ‘sides’ submitting a request to delay sentencing, due to muh cooperation. Mueller team were using
      using this as PLOY, taking advantage of thecfact that usually, if both sides,are in agreement, the Judge agrees.

      He just gets involved when there is DISAGREEMENT. So, as long as both sides,were in agreementvto delay, he was ‘fine’ with it. I am still puzzled as to why MUELLER team wanted to keep postponing.

      Have they been balking at actually ‘pulling the trigger’, and having Flynn guilty of a crime he didn’t commit?
      WHY not go ahead and sentence him, they did PapaD?

      Is it because after they sentence him he can talk? They still have an axe over his kids head. WHAT do they gain, by keeping his case in limbo for over two years?

        Dutchman- Do you think it’s possible Flynn rolled and was proactively cooperating for awhile, maybe a long while? It would explain the ongoing delays that kept Flynn out of jail and that may ultimately result in no jail (help those who help Mueller). Also, depending on how he “cooperated”, that could have resulted in Judge Sullivan suggesting Flynn acted in a “traitorous” manner.

        I am not suggesting the above occurred. It is just a scenario that fits those 2 pieces together. I’m sure there are many more possibilities.

          I have no doubt that Flynn has been cooperating with the Mueller Team, singing, perhaps, but not to the extent of composing, otherwise they would have dropped the charges. And I also have no doubt that the hammer they’ve been holding is charging his son with a FARA violation. They’ve already bankrupted his company, forced him to sell his house to pay lawyers, and by threatening his son with prison, got him to cooperate.

          I hope Judge Sullivan holds the DOJ lawyers and Mueller Team in contempt since he didn’t limit his order to documents used in the filing.

          I’m confident that when the Kisylak conversation is finally published, it will show that Flynn didn’t mislead the FBI, but didn’t remember the exact wording of a month old phone call.

    Flynn got screwed and the administration didn’t help him. Big deal he talked to some Russians during the transition. Logan act my azz. You think the Obama admin wasn’t talking to the Iranian’s before taking office? as well as having dialog with Russia before making the ”Reset” Button. Love to have the transcripts on those conversations.

    It’s kind of amazing the poor advise Trump was getting during his transition and early personnel decisions. Pence hasn’t impressed me. He screwed up the Flynn firing, it was totally unnecessary. He’s kind of a stiff and an empty suit. He hasn’t delivered anything when we had the advantage in the Congress. With his experience and connections you’d think he could have influenced Ryan more, when it came to immigration reform, budgets, healthcare etc. He looked like a potted plant, sitting there gap mouthed, collecting flies the time Trump was giving Pelosi and the Chuckie the razz about funding the wall and border security. Trump needs an arm twisting SOB to help carry the load.

      NONE IF THIS WAS NORMAL
      Instead of looking at the abuse of power and Obama totally destroying norms, do you think the Obama people were the tiniest bit worried the Bush people might use the Logan act against them as they were setting meeting and talking to world leaders even before he won. NEVER in their wildest imagination.

      Watch the stupid HBO propaganda video that did on the 2008 crash and election, Obama’s in it, so is Bush, the majority is Bush’s Treasury Secretary, Obama called him two months before the election saying he knows his going to win so you know it’s better they to start talking now.

      Contract that to Obama sicking the DOJ and the Intel community on Trump, lowering the declassification standard leak, the unmasking, doing everything to sabotage Trump’s transition.Pushing the media create the echo chamber of Russia, Russia. Leaking calls with world leaders.

      Pence was in congress not the Senate, the road block was the Senate, not congres, How was Pence to push assh@ls like McCain and Flake and Corker and the Alaska b!tch if Trump couldn’t do it, they had 51 votes. 60 needed to pass a bill and 50 for reconciliation.

        Pence is a soothing counterbalance. Pence brought in a good chunk of voters that were very reluctant about voting for DJT… evangelicals, pearl clutchers, old school GOPers, and those who were worried about DJT’s DC inexperience. He was also from flyover country.

        Pence brought in a number of voters who were inclined to stay at home or to not vote at all for the president’s slot. The choice of Pence was used often by Rush Limbaugh to illustrate the serious intent of Trump and the potential direction of his presidency.

        Pence is an attractive, well put together man and his solid marriage to his appealing wife Karen was a very strong plus to a lot of voters (female, especially) who only saw the tabloid sleaze of Trump’s past rather than his business acumen.

        Pence likely works well with PDJT because he has self-control, stays in his lane and does a good job at what he is tasked with. Is he legacy material? Is he strong enough to bear up to the swamp? Is he popular enough with R voters on his own? Those are entirely different questions.

          Omega…PDJT would not wait to pardon Flynn. Flynn has been in limbo for months. PDJT is a stand-up guy and extremely fair and sympathetic. I believe he would immediately pardon him especially in light of all the other dirt that will come out unless Judge Sullivan takes action on this.

          Mueller is not asking for jail time for Flynn, because he knows none will be assessed regardless of what he asks for, given Flynn’s service to the country.

    Wouldn’t this be the end of it?
    I understand that they do not want to produce transcripts of recordings that they are not using, but the judge was clear that he AT LEAST wanted to have the recording and original transcript of the Flynn-Kislyak call. They are abusing the fact that they do not need to produce OTHER transcripts & recordings in order to not produce the one they have been ordered to produce by the judge. That is a silly game which should incite the judge (in other countries that constitutes contempt of court and they can toss you in jail when you play such games).

    Failure to produce means that the judge has just a few options:

    1] toss the case immediately with prejudice, while voiding plea, issuing an order that bars the government from prosecuting him, or his family, for any other case directly or indirectly related to the case.

    2] the same, but allowing the government a very short time to remedy the situation: i.e. produce the transcript and recording fo the Flynn-Kislyak and just that. Say a week. And remind them of the consequences when they fail to produce it (see #1).

    But accepting that he will not get the evidence underlying or directly related to the plea is NOT AN OPTION. And the Mueller team must know this.

    Note that the ‘failure to file for FARA’ is not an issue because his company did file with the DOJ to report that they were representing Turkey before they did, they just filed under a different statue than FARA (can’t remember the name), on the advice of legal counsel.
    Legally speaking (as to the text of FARA) they DID file with DOJ and as such CAN”T be prosecuted for failure to file.

      Also, they still haven’t produced the ORIGINAL F-302 from January 2017. Just the ‘deliberative work product’ from mid-February. And of course a 302 is not supposed to be the object of deliberation, it should be a recording of facts.

      Where is it? Has that evidence been destroyed? Has the note-taker been questioned under oath in court? Have the audit logs at the FBI been checked?

      What happened after Weissman destroyed Arthur Andersen and it later went to Supreme Court and their decision was unanimous to toss? Nothing. Not in time for that company that employed 85,000 people in many countries. Nowhere near in time, and NOTHING happened to Weissman. He was allowed to remain practicing law even though he framed Andersen and later conduct ann illegal WH (Witch Hunt) against POTUS DJT.

      How true! Sidney Powell is truly a superstar in the legal world!

      I found it interesting when she talked about a “potentially relevant statutes in an ordinary case” in reference to the findings in Volume 2 of the Mueller/Weissmann report. I think Sidney left out one word between ordinary and case. That word is Weissmann. No case in which Weissmann is involved is ordinary. Look at the number of major cases with Weissmann as a prosecutor the Supreme Court or Court of Appeals have overturned either due to prosecutorial misconduct or ineptness. I strongly suspect Weissmann was chosen first, he was allowed to choose the rest of HIS team and then Mueller was added because he could be “controlled” due to his Uranium One involvement (aka blackmailed).

      In reference to Mueller’s announcement, Sidney said “he did what Comey did except he did it with innuendo and suggestion”. Two similar announcements with diametrically opposite desired outcomes. Comey set out to exonerate Hillary (before she was interviewed) and Mueller set out to shove the House into impeachment proceedings. I don’t know if Mueller has a conscience. I would like to think so but it has not been historically evident. He did, however, look timid and his voice was as shaky as Nancy Pelosi’s hands.

      We need far more Sidney Powell’s in the legal world. I wholeheartedly agree with her proposal that prosecutors be criminally liable for their actions. One thing I would hope that Sidney would include in the proposal would be to call that the Weissmann rule.

        Exactly, nice one Fannie… Powell is terrific. Wouldn’t to be in her crosshairs. How Weisman was allowed to work for Mueller was criminal, even to keep his law license and walk the streets freely following Enron. We can thank RR for this. Mueller’s job was to cover up. Something is rotten there….there are claims that the FISA/spying goes back to 2012 when Herr Mueller was in charge. It doesn’t reflect well that Bush had Comey and Mueller during his tenure.

        There’s a time and place to use those words to describe criminal activity. Same with treason. The hyper-sensitive left is hyperventilating about the word “spying” as we all know.

        As a result, we see the AG use words like “jejune” to describe some of the juvenile, legal logic in the Mueller-Weissman report.

        We see his use of the word “review” rather than “criminal investigation” to describe what US Atty Durham is doing in CT and what he himself is doing in terms of Spygate.

        We also see his use of the word “issues” to describe what US Atty Huber is “bringing to fruition” as they relate to Hillary Clinton.

        All are valid synonyms used in proper context. Same with spying. Right now, I see the AG using with deliberate purpose easily understandable words to help prepare “the body politic” grasp the enormity of what’s going down. So when the time is right, we’ll see prosecutors and former prosecutors roll out the bigger criminal charges.

    I think there is a qualifier in the question from Dickerson to Pence that no one is talking about. Dickerson asks Pence if anyone in the Administration had contacts with Russians who were trying to influence the election. Pence replied, “Of course not.” That statement would have been true regardless of the Flynn contacts. At the time, Flynn could not have known that any Russians were trying to influence the election. All Pence had to say, “You asked if we had talked to any Russians who were trying to influence the elections. At the time, I knew of no Russians who were interfering in the election. Yes, Flynn talked to Russians, but we had no knowledge of any Russian interference.”

    Seems the Mueller report is one twisted document:
    From page 61 of the Mueller report:
    “Throughout 2016, the Trump Campaign expressed interest in Hillary Clinton’s private email server and whether approximately 30,000 emails from that server had in fact been permanently destroyed, as reported by the media. Several individuals associated with the Campaign were contacted in 2016 about various efforts to obtain the missing Clinton emails and other stolen material in support of the Trump Campaign. Some of these contacts were met with skepticism, and nothing came of them; others were pursued to some degree. The investigation did not find evidence that the Trump Campaign recovered any such Clinton emails, or that these contacts were part of a coordinated effort between Russia and the Trump Campaign.”
    a. Henry Oknyansky (a/k/a Henry Greenberg)
    In the spring of 2016, Trump Campaign advisor Michael Caputo learned through a Florida based Russian business partner that another Florida-based Russian, Henry Oknyansky (who also went by the name Henry Greenberg), claimed to have information pertaining to Hillary Clinton. Caputo notified Roger Stone and brokered communication between Stone and Oknyansky. Oknyansky and Stone set up a May 2016 in-person meeting. Oknyansky was accompanied to the meeting by Alexei Rasin, a Ukrainian associate involved in Florida real estate. At the meeting, Rasin offered to sell Stone derogatory information on Clinton that Rasin claimed to have obtained while working for Clinton. Rasin claimed to
    possess financial statements demonstrating Clinton’s involvement in money laundering with Rasin’s companies. According to Oknyansky, Stone asked if the amounts in question totaled millions of dollars but was told it was closer to hundreds of thousands. Stone refused the offer, stating that Trump would not pay for opposition research.”

    What the Mueller report leaves out is that Oknyansky ( aka Henry Greenberg ) was an informant for the FBI for 17 years and was in the United States on a parole visa obtained for him by the FBI.

    The Mueller report also leaves out that they had Caputo’s text messages clearly indicating that Caputo did not attend the meeting

    Lots of comments above and I won’t try to address things I’ve seen. But I don’t see how Dowd can believe that his call to Flynn’s attorney was privileged and even if it was, why he would not have been more careful given the sensitivity of the call – i.e., he should have assumed that whatever is privileged can still end up in public, and his voicemail seems kind of sloppy and should have been clearer; it actually seems casual and unrehearsed. I don’t get that.
