This isn't in the Mueller report as a separate count of obstruction, but maybe it should be. #11. However, it is a court filing.

Note Watergate fans: as Esquire observed, this may change the landscape as there are ... tapes.

Flynn told Mueller that people tied to Trump and Congress tried to obstruct probe
The communications could have affected the ex-national security adviser's "willingness to cooperate," Robert Mueller wrote in court filings.

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn told investigators that people linked to the Trump administration and Congress reached out to him in an effort to interfere in the Russia probe, according to newly unredacted court papers filed Thursday.

The court filing from special counsel Robert Mueller is believed to mark the first public acknowledgement that a person connected to Capitol Hill was suspected of engaging in an attempt to impede the investigation into Russian election interference.

“The defendant informed the government of multiple instances, both before and after his guilty plea, where either he or his attorneys received communications from persons connected to the Administration or Congress that could’ve affected both his willingness to cooperate and the completeness of that cooperation," says the newly revealed section of a sentencing memo originally filed in December.

Flynn even provided a voicemail recording of one such communication, the court papers say.

Prosecutors did not identify any of the people who reached out to Flynn, but said the special counsel's office was in some instances "unaware of the outreach until being alerted to it by the defendant."

No other details were provided in the filing, but the Mueller report noted that President Donald Trump's personal lawyer left a voicemail message for Flynn in late November 2017 that addressed the possibility of him cooperating with the government.

"[I]t wouldn't surprise me if you've gone on to make a deal with ... the government," the attorney said in the voicemail message, according to Mueller.

[I]f... there's information that implicates the President, then we've got a national security issue [so] ... we need some kind of heads-up. Just for the sake of protecting all our interests if we can .... [R]emember what we've always said about the President and his feelings toward Flynn and, that still remains."

[snip][end]

The person in Congress involved in these actions is widely thought to be Devin Nunes.

Coercion and obstruction. Maybe even Witness Intimidation.

Sounds more Organized Crime.

Well drumpf at all are NYC mob.

They're not the mob everyone associates with NE US, it's a different mob. More international. It does overlap with the older mob when they have common goals.

No longer matters if a con does it, if a dem does it they will be hunted down and ended.

Dems CANT do anything about it either, SOA cant put anybody in jail or certainly not for long.

From Justin Amash, just now, on Twitter:

@justinamash
Here are my principal conclusions:
1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report.
2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.
3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances.
4. Few members of Congress have read the report.

I believe he is the first elected Republican representative to officially take this stance.

From HuffPo.

Congressman Amash has been an out spoken and frequent critic of 45. Look for hardcore 45 supporters to dump on him.

He is the first official Republican member of Congress to do so. Big fucking deal...Justin Amash is scum. In the 115th Congress he voted in support of Trump 54% of the time. In the 116th Congress he voted with Trump 91% of the time.


On the FiveThirtyEight page below you will see exactly which way Amash has voted on important bills in this Congress and the previous Congress.

FiveThirtyEight - Justin Amash Voting Record.

Justin Amash is a scum sucking conservative Republican pig. I want him gone as much as I want Trump gone.
