BREAKING: New unsealed FBI notes reveal perjury trap for Gen. Flynn

WASHINGTON—According to unsealed FBI notes released Wednesday reveal the intent of the FBI’s January 24, 2017 interview of Flynn:

“What is our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute [Flynn] or get him fired?”

The notes reveal that they planned to get Flynn removed: 1) Get Flynn “to admit to breaking the Logan Act”; or 2) Catch Flynn in a lie. Their end goal was a referral to the DOJ, not to investigate Flynn's contacts with the Russians. They discussed the potential of the interview occurring over the phone with McCabe – with an FBI agent to be posted to take notes.

The shocking new developments came as no surprise to Rep. Elise Stefanik  (R-NY) who tweeted the following response to CBS News' Catherine Herridge's tweet:


Powell credits the Brady process and "incessant pounding on prosecutors for proprietorial misconduct" and lots of hard work with the progress made.  This story is still developing.
