On Thursday, Judge Emmet G Sullivan ordered the Department of Justice to publicly release the transcript of a voicemail message former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn received that was attempting to convince him not to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller
“Defendant informed the government of multiple instances, both before and after his guilty plea, where either he or his attorneys received communication from persons connected to the Administration or Congress that could have affected both his willingness to cooperate and the completeness of that cooperation,” the court filing revealed. “The defendant even provided a voicemail recording of one such communication.”
