The judge who will sentence Michael Flynn on Tuesday ordered a redacted version of the FBI’s January, 2017 interview transcript with the former Trump National Security Advisor released tonight.
It’s a whopper.
Or, more accurately, the lies Flynn allegedly told are whoppers.
The interview notes (in FBI terms called a “302,”) should (but won’t) end the right wing conspiracy theories that Flynn didn’t lie, the FBI intentionally got him to lie, and wrongly convinced him to admit to lying. As usual, the far right has been turning itself into pretzels to support Trump and his cohorts.
This is one more set of facts that make clear Flynn and many, many others are in a lot of trouble.
Twitter is digging in to the transcript and has some observations. Basically, CNN’s Chris Cillizza sums it up: “Michael Flynn lied. A lot.”
