Nothing about Donald Trump says innocent. From his past real estate deals, to his campaign madness, to his current state of doth protest too much, Trump is quite obviously guilty of many things. This is clear by his endless rants about Bob Mueller and the Democratic “witch hunt” out to destroy his administration. But since we need a little more proof than the president’s shady behavior on and off the internet, here’s a bit of damaging information that Trump does not want you to see.
According to reports, a voicemail from Trump’s attorney, John Dowd, to Mike Flynn’s attorneys, implicates the president in obstructing justice. Oddly enough, Flynn fired those lawyers on Thursday.
According to ABC News:
“Government prosecutors on Thursday released the audio recording of a voicemail from President Donald Trump’s then-personal lawyer asking Michael Flynn‘s attorney for ‘some kind of heads up’ about the former national security adviser’s cooperation with investigators.”
The following excerpt from the voicemail were first seen in the Mueller report and has now been fully transcribed. It reads:
“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 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’s still remains, but — well, in any event, let me know and I appreciate you taking the time.”
