New release of the original Flynn 302 shows the reason why they didn’t want anyone to see it for almost 2 years. They lied on the 302.

Ouch! Looks like the FBI is in a really tough spot right about now. Considering they already admitted in court that Flynn was not advised of the nature of the interview.

The original 302 contradicts this. Which means the agents lied in their original report.

Memo: FBI recommended Michael Flynn not have lawyer present during interview, did not warn of false statement consequences

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who arranged the bureau’s interview with then-national security adviser Michael Flynn at the White House on Jan. 24, 2017 — the interview that ultimately led to Flynn’s guilty plea on one count of making false statements — suggested Flynn not have a lawyer present at the session, according to newly-filed court documents. In addition, FBI officials, along with the two agents who interviewed Flynn, decided specifically not to warn him that there would be penalties for making false statements because the agents wanted to ensure that Flynn was “relaxed” during the session.

The new information, drawn from McCabe’s account of events plus the FBI agents’ writeup of the interview — the so-called 302 report — is contained in a sentencing memo filed Tuesday by Flynn’s defense team.

Citing McCabe’s account, the sentencing memo says that shortly after noon on Jan. 24 — the fourth day of the new Trump administration — McCabe called Flynn on a secure phone in Flynn’s West Wing office. The two men discussed business briefly and then McCabe said that he “felt that we needed to have two of our agents sit down” with Flynn to discuss Flynn’s talks with Russian officials during the presidential transition.

The original 302 says they informed Flynn of the nature of the interview.

Memo from Flynn trial admits they intentionally did not inform him of the nature of the interview, in order to keep Flynn relaxed.

Both cannot be true.

Get it now?
