Last week’s release of the court transcript of a pre-sentencing hearing offered a rare view inside special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

But like jazz, what the document doesn’t say is arguably more important than what’s spelled out.

The transcript shows that Mueller’s team was deeply concerned that Manafort – after he had pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate them – continued to lie in hopes of receiving a pardon from President Trump.

As special counsel prosecutor Andrew Weissmann explained to U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson regarding why the government decided that Manafort has breached his plea agreement, “there was an unusual factor.”

“The second unusual factor, which was REDACTED the normal motives and incentives that are built into a cooperation agreement.”
