BREAKING: A stack of new internal FBI documents unsealed Wednesday show that top FBI officials discussed their motivations for interviewing then-national security adviser Michael Flynn in the White House in January 2017 — and openly indicated that their “goal” was “to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired.”
“What is our goal?” one of the notes read. “Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?”
“If we get him to admit to breaking the Logan Act, give facts to DOJ + have them decide,” another note read. Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley called the document’s implications “chilling.”
Michael Flynn, a 33-year, 3-star war hero, is accused of willfully and knowingly uttering false statements to the FBI regarding two different conversations that transpired between himself and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. General Flynn would later come to state that he was coerced into making these false statements, and claims his innocence, stating no wrongdoing on his part. He served for a short time as President Trump’s National Security Advisor from January 23 – February 13, 2017.
The documents released today, show a different story. See the handwritten notes below. There will be more documents released within the next 48 hours and we will update these as we receive them.
