#MuellerReport edited messages to make them appear more damaging,
full transcript of this phone call reveals Dowd’s message was pretty typical for a lawyer and he clearly states he’s not interested in any confidential info.
What else did they manipulate
Should be noted this is now the second manipulative edit by Mueller’s team. Rtskhiladze lawyer demanded a retraction of the inaccurate portrayal of their client and noted the special counsel had all of the interactions but didn’t disclose them. http://www.documentcloud.org/documents/5977239-Modified-ASB-Letter-to-WPB-Re-Mueller-Report-

From Conservative Treehouse:
In the Michael Flynn sentencing phase Judge Emmet Sullivan requested the Mueller prosecution team provide records related to the case. [Backstory Here]
Among other evidence, the judge ordered the government to file on the public docket “the transcript of the voicemail recording” from President Trump’s attorney John Dowd to Michael Flynn. The transcript of that voicemail recording was cited in the Mueller report as evidence that team Trump was trying to obstruct justice by shaping witness testimony.
Today, the Mueller team released the transcript of the call (full pdf below). However, as originally noticed by RosieMemos the released transcript clearly shows the Mueller team selectively edited the transcript to weaponized their portrayal of the contact.
Notice how Mueller leaves out (via edits) the context of the call, and the important qualifier: “without you having to give up any confidential information.” Clearly Dowd does not want to interfere in Flynn’s cooperation with the special counsel, which is opposite to the twisted claim presented by Weissmann and Mueller’s report.
