Then-National security Advisor, Michael Flynn, FBI agents said at the White house on 24 January of 2017, “not really” when asked if he had tried to convince her to escalate, the Russian Ambassador, a brewing dispute with the US over sanctions, released by the Obama administration, according to an explosive new FD-302 witness report, just hours before Flynn are set to be sentenced.
Flynn granted to other seemingly ambiguous answers to FBI agents’ questions, and at various points suggested that such talks could have happened, or he couldn’t remember if you did that, after the 302.
The document contained only a few definitive statements made by Flynn, who later pleaded guilty to false information about his contacts with the Russian Ambassador, in conjunction with the White house.
Flynn was charged with misconduct as a result of the substance of his telephone conversations with the Russian Ambassador-and a Washington Post article published the day before his White house interview with the FBI agents said that the FBI had Flynn’s call bugged, and disabled him for the behavior of any wrong.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller submitted the heavily redacted witness report documents FBI agents’ fate interview with Flynn on the late Monday night, shortly after U.S. district judge Emmet G. Sullivan issued the order Monday requiring that prosecutors turn to the public about the document.
Sullivan had ordered to contact the special counsel, the memoranda about all of the documents of the government and “memo” in connection with the interrogation of Flynn last week, after Flynn’s lawyers, in a bomb submission, claimed the FBI had to interview advised not to bring him, a lawyer for the White house, and apparently sought him out to convince, you’re on his side.

Sullivan’s, on Monday, said that the Miller had the team from confidential arguments under lock and key to the redactions you would need to make to the 302. Sullivan ruled that the redactions were reasonable and “strong presumption in favor of public access to judicial records,” the 302 could be made public, Monday.
The newly released 302-the was completed on Feb. 15, 2017, just two days after Flynn’s resignation, after he misled the Vice President of Pence about his communication with the Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak — found that Flynn said the agent, “not really,” when asked if he had said, Kislyak, not to escalate the diplomatic conflict over sanctions with the US government.
Flynn-who sold his house in Virginia this year, his legal bills mounted — explains in his confession, almost 11 months later, to know that his comments on the question, a lie to FBI agents.
“I don’t remember,” Flynn said officials in the White house, according to the 302, which places the comment in quotation marks, indicating that the agents were quoted directly, Flynn. “It was not ‘do nothing.'”

The document concluded with the statement that, “Flynn said, he didn’t do a lengthy discussion with Kislyak, where he would have asked him, ‘something.'”
Flynn, in fact, had asked to leave Kislyak”, the escalation of the situation in response to the sanctions imposed by the United States to Russia, which had on the same day,” according to the Prosecutor’s office, said Kislyak “to moderate response to the sanctions as a result of his request.”
Flynn also denied to investigators that he had asked to vote in Russia, said in a certain way at the United Nations, that it be only calls of countries were requests for information, as they planned to.
But Flynn has since admitted in his confession that in mid-December 2017, a “very experienced member” of the trump transition team directed Flynn to contact with foreign governments, such as Russia contacted via a un vote on Israeli settlements, and Flynn, in turn, the Russian Ambassador. The Associated Press, the “very high” official was trump sons-in-law, Jared Kushner.
The Flynn 302 released on Monday further claims have been advised Flynn, on the “Art of the interview” before it began.
But in a lengthy court filing on Tuesday, Flynn’s lawyers claimed that the former FBI assistant Director Andrew McCabe pushed Flynn to a lawyer during the interrogation, and finally to his confession on a single charge of lying to Federal authorities.
One of the agents carried, fired the Flynn-interview, Peter Strzok, from the Russia probe at the end of July 2017, for its apparent anti-Trump bias.
