- John Dowd: More Evidence Coming that Shows Mueller Report ‘is a Fraud’

Former Trump lawyer John Dowd predicted multiple instances of special counsel Robert Mueller misleading the public in his report will be revealed. During an interview on Fox News, Dowd said he was glad a federal judge released the transcript of a voicemail he left for retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s lawyer Rob Kelner shortly after he agreed to cooperate with Mueller. “We now know the truth,” he told host Sean Hannity.
Mueller referenced parts of the Nov. 22, 2017, voicemail in his final report about how Dowd asked for a “heads up” if Flynn knew information that “implicates” Trump after Flynn dropped from a joint defense agreement with the president.
Defenders of the president, including Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., have highlighted how parts of the transcript were left out, including Dowd saying his request was “not only for the president, but for the country,” he was not asking for confidential information, and he did not appear to be certain that Flynn had decided to cooperate with Mueller’s team.
“We also know this entire report by Mueller is a fraud. And we’re going to find more of these things,” Dowd said. He resigned as Trump’s lead counsel for the Mueller investigation in March 2018.
