Flynn's possible prosecution under the Logan Act, and the Trump circle's arguments against that is a recurring theme in the Mueller report.
A few instances in a thread. ⬇️
"The FBI investigative team also believed that Flynn's calls with Kislyak and subsequent denials about discussing sanctions raised potential Logan Act issues and were relevant to the FBI's broader Russia investigation."
Volume II, page 30.
This line appears in the section "DOJ Officials Notify the White House ofTheir Concems About Flynn":
"The President asked about Section 1001 [false statements], and McGahn explained the law to him, and also explained the Logan Act."
- Volume II, page 31
