Ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes called Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report a “fraud” citing the investigators conveniently left information out of the report to make it appear President Trump’s counsel may have been obstructing justice.
The newly released transcripts were from a voicemail message left by Trump’s former lawyer John Dowd to National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s lawyer Robert Kelner.
Mueller’s team made it appear in the Special Counsel’s report that Dowd was asking for a “heads up” if Flynn planned to say anything damaging about Trump, alluding to possible ‘obstruction’ by his counsel. However, now that the full transcripts have been formerly released by a court order it appears to be all-together different. In fact, it appears that Mueller weaponized the transcript. What I mean is that Mueller left out the most significant parts of the message to make it appear that Dowd (who represented Trump) was attempting to obstruct the investigation.
Mueller had redacted two significant portions of the voicemail message transcript, which according to numerous critics, reveal there was no intention of obstruction. In fact, as Trump’s attorney Dowd was only doing his job.
Nunes tweeted a side-by-side comparison of the Dowd transcript text Saturday and the Mueller report text. It shows that the Mueller report did not disclose Dowd’s full message.
And there’s a reason why – it would’ve taken the steam out of Mueller’s second half of his report that there was a possibility of “obstruction.” There was no obstruction.
