Full text document Robert Mueller sentencing recommendation for General Michael Flynn former Trump National Security Advisor

Redacted document Robert Mueller sentencing recommendation for General Michael Flynn former Trump National Security Advisor

Reps. Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows react to the release of documents from the Mueller probe recommending no jail time for former national security advisor Mike Flynn on ‘Hannity.’

“Everybody is going to focus on what is redacted, but let’s look at what is not in there. There is no suggestion that Michael Flynn had anything to do with collusion,” Meadows explained. “He was with the transition team, he was part of the campaign, and yet there is no mention of collusion.”

“I think it is good news for President Trump tonight, even though they said he substantially cooperated, I think he substantially cooperated to say that there was no collusion,” he said.

CNN’s take somewhat different says, Tuesday’s documents did little to add to Mueller’s mosaic of ties between Trump world and Moscow, given his reticence to prejudice other investigations. But what the filing did have in common with Mueller’s past practice was the sowing of new intrigues, open loops and what have become known as “breadcrumbs” that offer tantalizing clues about the direction he is headed.

The network, choosing to focus on redacted information, went on to say the document provided few definitive answers, but its line after line of blacked-out text offered eloquent testimony on the breadth of the Mueller investigation and appears to dispel expectations that he is nearly ready to wrap up. That’s because he withheld the most crucial details that would have blown open the case to protect ongoing and future inquiries and potential prosecutions.
