Then-Deputy FBI Director, Andrew McCabe, the White house said at the beginning of February 2017, the office was under the consideration of the national security adviser at the time, Michael Flynn, for a possible Logan Act prosecution about conversations with the Russian Ambassador before Donald Trump was sworn in as President, the government records post by Fox News show.

McCabe was on the rarely prosecuted, a 200-year-old Statute followed, the bars, the American citizens, from employment with a foreign government without authorization from the current U.S. government.


The records also show that Flynn reported on two separate occasions in the days prior to his White house burning, the FBI agent told him the bureau investigation was closed.

Both incidents raise questions about the underlying offense which formed the basis for the first, FBI and DOJ investigation, Flynn.

The general was retired and later fired by the White house for misleading the Vice-President on communication with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian Ambassador, during the transition, before Trump was sworn in.


Flynn was never charged with wrong-way communicates with Kislyak, but in December 2017, pleaded guilty to a single count of making false statements as part of a plea deal with the Prosecutor’s office.

On Tuesday, Flynn and his legal team are back in court, after she claims special counsel office of the public Prosecutor held back evidence. Fox News has reached to McCabe’s legal team for comment.

In an Aug. 30 court filing, Flynn ‘ s new attorney, Sidney Powell wrote in Order to produce “The Prosecutor in this case repeatedly have failed Brady evidence despite…the clarity of this court… their ethical and constitutional obligations…specific requirements for documents, the state attorneys, exculpatory, and… these requests are made, several times.”

Brady evidence refers to all the exculpatory evidence prosecutors are obligated to turn over, as in the case of the Supreme court in Brady v. Maryland.

Powell has claimed that the members of the special counsel team prosecuting the case, pressed under the direction of Prosecutor Andrew Weissmann “in the affirmative, under the evidence, the (hidden Brady material), the credibility of its primary witness, dispute destroyed timid your entire case against M. Flynn, while at the same time at the same time put unbearable pressure on him to comply with his confession and the Manipulation or control of the press, to extort your progress of this, please.”

The filing also shows contact, reports Fox News, between Weissmann and the other senior Department of justice officials, which was in the fall of 2016 before the presidential election, and almost a year before Robert Müller to the special counsel.

Powell, Flynn’s lawyer, said the court, the justice Department official Bruce ear was a back-channel to the FBI and shared the anti-Trump dossier with the Ministry of justice officials, joined later by the special counsel team.

The ear gave a closed-door transcribed interview last August with the release of details of its 2016 meeting with the British ex-spy Christopher Steele, who authored the dossier, which is later used to secure surveillance guarantee for a Trump campaign aide. The interview was part of the Republican-led house oversight and judiciary Committee probes.


In a series of questions about his meeting with Steele, which you on 30. July 2016, and who he shared the information that the ear is referred to both McCabe and Weissmann.

A separate motion by Flynn’s accused legal team, the law enforcement of the withholding tax interview, the original FBI summary of Flynn’s known as a 302.

The published version of the 302 shows, it was found from the mid-February 2017-nearly three weeks after the interview took place.

The prosecutors have taken the position that it was Flynn ‘ s original legal team for the relevant records, and in December 2017, Flynn, the responsibility for his actions, accepted under oath.
