Unsealed documents might have the FBI facing consequences as the information appears to find them having the goal of getting General Michael Flynn fired or prosecuted. This was apparently the main goal of the top FBI officials who wanted General Flynn interviewed.
This was revealed on a handwritten note in the documents unsealed. The agents, whose identity we do not know, wanted the former national security adviser to “admit breaking the Logan Act.” This is something that restricts the communications between foreign governments and the private citizens. They wanted to see if Flynn would lie and catch him in it, then use it against him as deemed fit.
Washington Times makes it clear that it’s unknown who actually wrote the note, but then says Fox News suggests it was written by James A. Baker – a former FBI General counsel.
The handwritten note puts a dent in any case the government might have against General Flynn because it paints the FBI in quite a bad set of optics and goals.
Flynn “pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to the FBI about his conversations with a former Russian ambassador about sanctions on the country, but in January he told a federal judge he “was innocent of this crime.”
He filed to withdraw his guilty plea after the Justice Department requested a sentence of up to six months in prison, although the department later relented admitting probation would be appropriate.”
The question now is this- did the Justice Department disclose all evidence to General Flynn before he pleaded guilty? And if not, then why not?
It is currently unknown if the newly revealed documents were available or even disclosed back then, so now many wonder if this will be reviewed and revised. Will this help Flynn in his attempts to clear his name?
General Flynn pleaded guilty, but has always stated he was honest. There’s something else going on behind the scenes that we simply can’t put a finger on, such as why he pleaded guilty in the first place.
As seen on WT, “I did not lie to them. I believed I was honest with them to the best of my recollection,” he wrote in a January legal filing. Flynn admitted in the same filing he didn’t remember if he discussed sanctions with the ambassador. But in 2017, he offered no rebuttal to prosecutors’ claims that he told a series of falsehoods to the FBI. In fact, Flynn told a federal judge he had violated the law at his plea hearing.”
The situation is ongoing and remains unclear what will happen with General Flynn.
He was last seen posting a video on Twitter of an American flag.
