FBI Agents Knew Flynn ‘Was not Acting as an Agent of Russia’

In late June, a US appeals court ordered a district judge to comply with a previous decision by the Department of Justice and drop the review of the criminal case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

The FBI knew that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was not a Russian agent, and they believed that he did not deliberately lie to them during his 2017 interview, according to newly released documents provided by the Department of Justice (DOJ) to Flynn’s legal team.

His lawyers wrote in a court filing on Friday that the documents had revealed FBI agents and DOJ officials “knew General Flynn’s statements were not material to any investigation, that he was ‘open and forthcoming’ with the agents, that he had no intent to deceive them, and that he believed he was fully truthful with them”.

A portion of the documents is related to an early FBI interview with Flynn, claiming that the FBI “[…] determined that Flynn was not acting as an agent of Russia”.
