On Thursday, newly unredacted court papers show that Michael Flynn told the special counsel’s investigators that people with links to the Trump administration and Congress contacted him in an attempt to interfere in the Trump-Russia investigation. The filing from Mueller’s office is reportedly the first “public acknowledgment that a person connected to Capitol Hill was suspected of engaging in an attempt to impede the investigation,” per NBC News.
Court papers revealed Thursday say that Flynn “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.”
ordered that redacted portions of the Mueller report relating to Michael Flynn must be released to the public by the end of the month. It was the first time a judge ruled that the Justice Department must release blacked-out information from the report.
