A U.S. District Court judge has ordered Robert Mueller to hand over documents pertaining to retired lieutenant general Michael Flynn interview. The Judge wants to review the documents before he rules on the Flynn case.
District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan requested two documents be turned over from Flynn’s lawyer, a memo that then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe wrote after speaking with Flynn ahead his Jan. 24, 2017 interview with two FBI agents and the FBI summary of notes taken during that same interview. This is due to the fact Flynn’s lawyer claimed FBI Andrew McCabe requested Flynn to not bring a lawyer to the interview.
Judge Sullivan ordered Mueller to turn over all documents by Friday at 3 PM. Sullivan has a history of overturning cases due to government misconduct. Sullivan overturned a 2008 conviction of former Sen. Ted Stevens after government misconduct was revealed.
McCabe wrote in filed court documents,”I explained that I thought the quickest way to get this done was to have a conversation between [Flynn] and the agents only.”
“I further stated that if LTG Flynn wished to include anyone else in the meeting, like the White House counsel for instance, that I would need to involve the Department of Justice. [Flynn] stated that this would not be necessary and agreed to meet with the agents without any additional participants.”
It is possible with the ordering of the documents by Judge Sullivan he may rule the FBI was using unethical forms of interrogation in order to entrap Trump staff.
