Memo: FBI recommended Michael Flynn not have lawyer present during interview, did not warn of false statement consequences
by Byron York
 | December 11, 2018 10:36 PM



Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who arranged the bureau's interview with then-national security adviser Michael Flynn at the White House on Jan. 24, 2017 — the interview that ultimately led to Flynn's guilty plea on one count of making false statements — suggested Flynn not have a lawyer present at the session, according to newly-filed court documents. In addition, FBI officials, along with the two agents who interviewed Flynn, decided specifically not to warn him that there would be penalties for making false statements because the agents wanted to ensure that Flynn was "relaxed" during the session.

The new information, drawn from McCabe's account of events plus the FBI agents' writeup of the interview — the so-called 302 report — is contained in a sentencing memo filed Tuesday by Flynn's defense team.

Citing McCabe's account, the sentencing memo says that shortly after noon on Jan. 24 — the fourth day of the new Trump administration — McCabe called Flynn on a secure phone in Flynn's West Wing office. The two men discussed business briefly and then McCabe said that he "felt that we needed to have two of our agents sit down" with Flynn to discuss Flynn's talks with Russian officials during the presidential transition.

This stinks to high heaven of entrapment.

But I guess thats ok with half the country. Sadly not surprising as, knowingly or unknowingly, the next generation seems to be welcoming Stalinism with open arms.

Isn't this a violation of his Miranda Rights?

So Miranda is not required when the FBI interrogates suspects.  Nice.

I already have you down on that list Bigun.

Just this weekend a younger person was lecturing me on the virtues of  'European socialism' with no clue, as Reagan, or Jefferson, (or Ford?) once said, that a government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.

I am afraid we are in for a very tough time.

HOW IS THIS LEGAL?… Flynn Gave FBI Agents Tour of White House – Was Joking With Them — HAD NO IDEA He Was Being Interrogated!
Gateway Pundit, Dec 11, 2018

They told Flynn not to have his lawyer present.  He thought it was a social visit.

This was on January 24th — four days after the Inauguration

Flynn had NO IDEA he was being interrogated. This is how the Deep State criminals operate.

Flynn thought is was some sort of training session.

In fact Michael Flynn gave the FBI creatures a tour of his White House wing, joking with them, thinking it was some kind of training session!

They set him up. They spied on him! They spied on Trump. They spied on Trump’s daughter. They sent in operatives to spy on the Trump campaign. And then they charged Mike Flynn with lying to investigators when he did not even know he was being interrogated!
