.@PeteWilliamsNBC has obtained the full AG Barr memo re: elections.

Key sections:
"While serious allegations should be handled with great care, specious, speculative, fanciful or far-fetched claims should not be a basis for initiating federal inquiries." 1/2)
@PeteWilliamsNBC "Nothing here should be taken as any indication that the Department has concluded that voting irregularities have impacted the outcome of any
election." (2/2)
@PeteWilliamsNBC Re: "substantial irregularities" full quote:

"I authorize you to pursue substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities prior to the certification of elections in your jurisdictions in certain cases, as I have already done in specific instances."
Re: "substantial irregularities" full quote:

"Such inquiries and reviews may be conducted if there are clear and apparently-credible allegations of
irregularities that, if true, could potentially impact the outcome of a federal election in an individual
State." (2/2)

NEW: Federal prosecutors acknowledge that dates written on former FBI officials Pete Strozk and Andy McCabe's notes were not written by them.

Instead, they say the dates were estimated dates created by a review team and attached by post-it notes and inadvertently scanned in.
As you may recall, in the past few weeks Strozk and MCabe have raised concerns that dates appeared on their handwritten notes filed in the Flynn case that they say they never wrote.

Today, prosecutors acknowledged they were right, they didn't write in those dates.
The prosecutors say it was FBI agents assigned to the Eastern District of Missouri who attached the dates via post-it note as "estimated dates" and then the documents were scanned at FBI headquarters without taking the post-it notes off first.

NEW: Two notorious political operatives, Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman, have been charged by the Michigan Attorney General in connection with an alleged orchestration of robocalls which the AG's office says was an attempt to suppress the vote.

They each face 4 felony counts.
If convicted the two could face as many as 7 years in prison.
The Michigan AG alleges the calls were orchestrated by the duo in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Illinois “all of which reported similar robocalls being made to residents in their states who live in urban areas with significant minority populations.”

NEW: An FBI agent who investigated Flynn recently told the FBI and prosecutors reviewing the Flynn case that he felt Flynn lied to the FBI in his interview to save his job but thought the prosecution of Flynn by Mueller was an effort to “get Trump”, according to a court document.
The agent, identified as William Barnett, apparently told those reviewing the Flynn investigation that the investigation into Manafort, Page, and Papadopoulos were proper because there were investigative angles to follow.
The 13 page interview summary was filed just before midnight tonight by prosecutors seeking to dismiss the case against Flynn.

A dismissal that is being reviewed by the judge who accepted Flynn's initial guilty plea.
