Judge In Flynn Case Demands that FBI Produce the Original Interview Notes

Why did the interviewing agents say he didn't lie? And why was no official record of this interview filed until seven months after the interview, after Muller had taken over?

Chuck Ross:

The judge presiding over the Michael Flynn case is ordering a review of key FBI documents before deciding on a sentence for the former national security adviser.

Judge Emmet Sullivan wants to review a memo put together on Jan. 24, 2017 by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. He also wants to look at FBI notes from that interview.

Flynn's lawyers revealed Tuesday that McCabe wrote he urged Flynn to meet with FBI agents without an attorney because it would be the "quickest" way to complete the meeting.

...

District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan on Wednesday ordered Flynnís lawyers to hand over two documents: 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.

That summary, known as an FD-302, was compiled on Aug. 22, 2017 by the two FBI agents who interviewed Flynn. It is unclear why the summary was put together seven months after the Flynn interview.

...

Sullivan also ordered the special counsel to hand over any other memos or interview notes relevant to Flynn's interview....

Sullivanís interest in the documents appears to have been spurred by claims that Flynnís lawyers made in a court filing submitted Tuesday night.

Pointing to the McCabe memo, they noted that McCabe nudged Flynn toward meeting with the two FBI agents without an attorney present. He wrote that he told Flynn that a two-on-one meeting would be the "quickest" option....

McCabe also wrote in the memo that he and other FBI officials decided before the meeting that Flynn would not be warned ahead of the interview about the penalties of lying to the agents. McCabe noted that "they wanted Flynn to be relaxed" and "were concerned that giving the warnings might adversely affect the rapport."

Ross deems it "unlikely" that the documents will be released for public viewing, alas.

I saw this yesterday. Look how this "Aggressive Moderate" reacted to an except from official court orders:
