BREAKING: The Michael Flynn Sentencing Memo has just been released. It's only 13 pages and much of it – the good stuff – has been redacted.
#Maddow #inners
Mueller's office re Flynn: "Given the defendant's SUBSTANTIAL ASSISTANCE ...a sentence at the low end of the guideline range—including a sentence that does not impose a term of incarceration—is appropriate and warranted."
Flynn Sentencing Memo: Flynn provided firsthand info re the content & context of interactions between the TRUMP TRANSITION TEAM and Russian government officials – including about the DEC 2016 UN Security Council vote criticizing Israel.
ICYMI: Mueller asked witnesses about Kushner's role in a controversy re a DEC 2016 UN Security Council vote condemning Israel. "Jared called Flynn and told him to get on the phone to every member of UN Sec Council and tell them to delay the vote.”
Recall: Jared Kushner spoke with Mueller before it was publicly known that Flynn was cooperating & had named Kushner as the “very senior member of Trump Transition Team” who directed him to contact the Russian ambassador re the UNSC vote on Israel.
FLYNN has also assisted the SCO investigation concerning links or *coordination* between the Russian government and individuals associated with the TRUMP CAMPAIGN and on a range of issues including between TRUMP Transition Team members and Russia.
FLYNN Sentencing Memo: "Several senior members of the transition team publicly repeated false information conveyed to them by the defendant about communications between him and the Russian ambassador regarding the sanctions.”
Dec 29, 2016 at Mar-a-Lago: KT McFarland conferred with FLYNN by phone re his Russian sanctions conversations with Kislyak then emailed info re the calls to Bossart, who forwarded her email to 6 Trump advisers, including Priebus, Bannon, & Spicer.
Flynn Sentencing Memo: Flynn provided firsthand info re content & context of interactions between TRUMP TRANSITION TEAM & Russian government officials – including about efforts [led by Kushner] to delay the DEC 2016 UNSC vote criticizing Israel.
DEC 2016: Kushner, FLYNN & Bannon met w/ MBZ in NY, after which Erik Prince met w/ MBZ as a Trump transition representative & asked MBZ to set a meeting for them w/ the head of RDIF, [an arm of Russia's VEB Bank whose CEO met w/ Jared in DEC 2016].
FLYNN Sentencing Memo: The defendant has assisted the SCO investigation concerning *coordination* between the Russian government and TRUMP CAMPAIGN/Transition Team members...participated in 19 interviews with SCO or other DOJ offices, provided documents--
Dec 2016:
-Kushner tells Russian Amb Kislyak he wants a Kremlin back channel
-Kushner, Flynn, Bannon, Erik Prince & Kushner pal Rick Gerson meet in NY w/ Nader & UAE Crown Prince MBZ, who sets up the Seychelles mtg with Putin envoy, Kirill Dmitriev
Mueller is probing whether the covert Four Seasons meeting [between Kushner, FLYNN, Bannon, & MBZ] and the Erik Prince Seychelles meeting were efforts to set up a Russian backchannel for the Trump admin. "Kushner's guy" Rick Gerson attended both.
