Gee, I wonder what they wanted to talk about?

Courtesy of CNN:

Less redacted versions of memos released Thursday from the court record in Michael Flynn’s criminal case reveal more details of Flynn’s cooperation with special counsel Robert Mueller.

A voicemail recording exists of a member of the Trump administration reaching out to Flynn and his lawyers while he was cooperating with Mueller, according to unsealed documents in Flynn’s criminal case Thursday. Flynn had told Mueller about multiple examples of this type of outreach, the newly revealed court filings say, and it became a significant part of Mueller’s inquiry into whether the President obstructed justice.

Other documents show that Flynn was among “a select few people” who heard statements among campaign officials about WikiLeaks and spoke to Mueller about those conversations. That included unnamed campaign officials’ discussion of reaching out to WikiLeaks after it had released emails the Russians had stolen from the Clinton campaign.

“The defendant relayed to the government statements made in 2016 by senior campaign officials about WikiLeaks to which only a select few people were privy. For example, the defendant recalled conversations with senior campaign officials after the release of the Podesta emails, during which the prospect of reaching out to WikiLeaks was discussed,” according to the newly unredacted documents.

It was not known how much Flynn had contributed to this part of the investigation, because much of the Mueller report related to this is still redacted because of the ongoing case against Roger Stone.

The memos also reveal that Flynn was an important source concerning contacts between the Russians and the Trump campaign.

So now we just have to determine what the Trump folks wanted to talk to Flynn about, and whether or not they were giving him direction on what to share with investigators or attempting to determine what he had already shared. 

Both could be classified as obstruction. 

No matter how you spin it, this is bad news for Trump and certain folks in his administration.

    “President Barack Obama warned the president-elect against having Flynn serve in his administration during a 90-minute meeting held shortly after the November 2016 election, but Trump administration officials believed Obama was joking about one of his more vocal critics.”<Wrong!

    So they wanted Flynn to commit perjury. Obstruction.

    They wanted Cohen to commit perjury. Obstruction.

    They wanted McGann to OBSTRUCT.

    How much does it take for even Republicans to understand Trump has committed high crimes and misdemeanors. He has committed impeachable offenses.

    Well, one Republicans has already come out and said it.
