McCabe 1/24/2017 Memo re: Flynn Call…
Full Document:

Special Counsel (likely Weissmann) exit interview of Peter Strzok…
From the Special Counsel's Report - here is the voicemail in question left for Flynn's lawyer.

Mueller framed it as a possible effort to affect cooperation.

However - the VM asks for a "heads up" Image
McCord's involvement is important.

She knew of Flynn's call prior to the WaPo Logan Act leak of his conversation w/ the Russian Ambassador. (Pretext)

She later joined Yates in the WH meeting. ImageImageImage

The DOJ has filed its Kevin Clinesmith sentencing memo

They want incarceration.

DOJ: Clinesmith wasn't just altering e-mails - he was lying about Carter Page in DMs to the FBI agent.

Thread. ImageImageImage
Why the Clinesmith lie was material:

"It would raise the issue of whether [Carter Page] had those interactions with the intent to assist the US gov't."

It would go to the "loyalties" of Carter Page.

Clinesmith knew FISC needed to be informed.

@AWeissmann_ disagrees 🤦‍♂️ ImageImageImage
Clinesmith's lies "allowed the FBI to conduct surveillance" on @carterwpage thru a FISA application that "lacked probable cause"

He violated the duty of candor to the FISA court. ImageImage

DOJ produces new Flynn evidence - 1/25/17 Notes FBI OGC lawyer notes.

Logan Act: "no reasonable prosecutor" would proceed.

Flynn call w/ Kislyak similar to "other transition teams"

"First time to use [Logan Act]"

Thread. Image
TOP FBI lawyer James Baker:

"How do you assess § 1001 (false statements) when you wouldn't prosecute the underlying crime?"

Big concession that this wasn't about the broader Crossfile Hurricane investigation. Image
Assessment of whether Flynn is in a "covert relationship w/ Russia":

"No, probably not based on facts to date and interview."

Will be necessary to compare this to the Flynn NSLs handled by Clinesmith. Possible predication issues. (See pic) ImageImage

🚨Flynn update - Interview 302 from FBI Agent William Barnett

"BARNETT believed the prosecution of FLYNN by SCO (Team Mueller) was used as a means to 'get Trump'"

Thread. Image
Agent Barnett was assigned to Crossfire Razor (the Flynn counter-intel investigation).

Barnett was later assigned to the Special Counsel team.

Barnett: the predication for the Flynn investigation was "not great" Image
Crossfire Hurricane source (likely Halper) accused Flynn of leaving a 2014 event with an undisclosed person.

Perhaps @RealSLokhova

FBI assessed this information to be not accurate Image

The Ghislaine Maxwell (Epstein) documents have been unsealed.

Will be posting excerpts here -

Starting with allegations of minor being trafficked to Maxwell, Prince Andrew, and Alan Dershowitz (as prev. alleged).

Thread. Image
The trafficking scheme was international in scope - in France, Ghislaine Maxwell ordered her give an "erotic massage" to a French hotel magnate.

Deposition of the victim:

"I was ordered by Ghislaine (Maxwell) to go and give him an erotic massage." Image
Serious allegations -

Maxwell directed the minor to have sex with former MIT scientist Marvin Minsky at Epstein's complex in the US Virgin Islands.

(Minsky pictured.) ImageImage

DOJ has filed its Response to @SidneyPowell1 motion to compel production of documents in the Flynn case:… Image
@SidneyPowell1 DOJ: There were no material changes made after 2/10/17 to the Flynn 302.

These blue-lined insertions [e.g. Russian Ambassador describing a Russian response] are material.

CC @KerriKupecDOJ ImageImage
@SidneyPowell1 @KerriKupecDOJ This curious DOJ argument:

"Even if an earlier draft of the [302] once existed, there is no reason to believe it would materially differ" from the agents' notes.

Even if the original - and now disappeared - 302 "once existed"?? 🤔 Image
