Since 2017, former national security advisor Michael Flynn has been going through legal hell. But some good news for Flynn came Tuesday, in the form of newly discovered exculpatory notes taken by his interviewer, now-fired-in-shame FBI special agent Peter Strzok.
A court filing said that U.S. Attorney Jeffery Jensen, who was appointed by Attorney General Bill Barr to oversee the Flynn case, “obtained and analyzed” the document, according to the Washington Examiner.
Acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Michael Sherwin told Flynn’s team that “[W]hile the page itself is undated; we believe that the notes were taken in early January 2017, possibly between January 3 and January 5. These materials are covered by the Protective Order entered by the Court on February 21, 2018; additional documents may be forthcoming.” The letter, which was submitted to the U.S. D.C. District Court as part of the discovery process, can be viewed here.
According to John Solomon at JustTheNews.com, the notes were not made public since they are subject to a protective order. A source told Just the News that the document includes one paragraph of notes from around January 4, 2017, which is the date Strzok sent a request from FBI leadership to the lead agent in Flynn’s case asking him not to close the investigation, even though the shut down was planned earlier. The source told Just the News that the notes are “highly exculpatory.”
