& # 39; We need some kind of heads-up & # 39 ;: the court releases Trump's secret call to Mike Flynn's lawyer just before the former national security advisor snapped
- The government issued the transcript of a voicemail. Trump lawyer John Dowd left for Mike Flynn's lawyer
- However, Flynn's talks with the former Russian ambassador to the US Sergei Kislyak remain closed
- Trump lawyer John Dowd asked for & # 39; heads-up & # 39; in case there was information implying the president
- Flynn decided whether he would cooperate with prosecutors
- He eventually pleaded guilty of lying to the FBI and providing extensive cooperation
President Trump & # 39; s former lawyer John Dowd left a secret voice message to the lawyer of former National Security Advisory Mike Flynn who asked for a & # 39; head-up & # 39; asked if he had any information that the president & # 39; implies & # 39 ;, according to a non-closed document.
The Ministry of Justice released the transcript of a November 22, 2017 voicemail, which Dowd left with Flynn lawyer Rob Kelner at a time when Flynn decided to collaborate with investigators from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
& # 39; I am sympathetic; I understand your situation, & says Dowd in the message that judge Emmitt Sullivan ordered to release and that the government will submit to a court on Friday.
One of President Trump's lawyers asked a National Security Advisory Mike Flynn lawyer for a & # 39; head-up & # 39; in connection with incriminating information
He said it would not surprise him if & # 39; you went to make a deal and work with the government & # 39; – something that Flynn finally decided to do.
He said he understood that Flynn could probably not be part of a joint defense agreement in which defendants share information.
& # 39; If we do, there is information. … implies the president, then we have a problem with national security, or maybe a problem with national security, I don't know … a problem, we have to – we are dealing with, not just for the president, but for the country, & he said, CNN reported.
Special advice Robert Mueller's report on Russian election interference included extracts from the call.
Flynn is waiting for a conviction after providing what the prosecutor said is an extensive collaboration.
Flynn shared with the government a number of times that could have affected both his willingness to cooperate and the completeness of his collaboration, said two US lawyers in a conviction document last year.
Judge Sullivan also ordered Flynn's conversations with the former Russian ambassador of the American Sergei Kislyak to be placed, but they remained sealed.
