Justice Department releases 2017 memo which shows the FBI did not think Michael Flynn intentionally lied

July 10, 2020

  Just yesterday we learned that the judge in the Michael Flynn case is still refusing to drop the charges against him because he is hoping beyond hope that somebody will come forward with evidence that can be used against him.

  Well, somebody did come forward last might but the only problem for Judge Sullivan is it was the Department of Justice and the evidence was a memo from 2017 which showed the FBI did not believe Michael Flynn intentionally lied to the rogue agency. Here is more:

The Justice Department this week provided Michael Flynn’s lawyers with a long-rumored government memo which shows that FBI officials did not believe that the former national security adviser intentionally lied in a White House interview at the center of his legal battle.

The memo, dated Jan. 30, 2017, and published Friday, also said that FBI investigators did not believe that Flynn was working as an agent of Russia.

The memo said that the FBI briefed the Justice Department’s national security division and office of the deputy attorney general on Jan. 25, 2017, a day after the Flynn interview.

“FBI advised that based on this interview, they did not believe General Flynn was acting as an agent of Russia,” the draft memo said.

According to the memo, Strzok and Pientka did not believe that Flynn believed he was lying during the White House interview.

“FBI also advised that although they recognized the statements were inconsistent with the FISA collection, they believed that Flynn believed what he was telling them,” the memo said.

“FBI advised that they believed Flynn believed what he was saying was true,” it continues. “FBI recognized the discrepancy between the statements and the actual calls, but determined that Flynn was not acting as an agent of Russia.”

  I am not sure why it took so long for this draft memo to be released and why this case was allowed to linger on so long but this is the exculpatory evidence we have been hearing about for so long and it does explain why his sentencing was delayed time and time again.

  Michael Flynn was bankrupted while trying to defend himself and when the FBI threatened to go after his family he finally realized he could not fight City Hall any longer so he plead guilty to spare his family. It is time for Judge Sullivan to give up and drop the charges.

    Fifty years ago I thought that Hoover’s FBI was doing some wrong things. Hoover was a Sunday School kid compared to the swamp dwellers we’re finding these days.
