Investigative journalist John Solomon appeared on Lou Dobbs Tonight Wednesday and pre-announced what would be some very big news. A source told him that either Wednesday night or Thursday morning “handwritten notes” by an FBI agent present at a meeting where they were deciding on the best way to frame General Flynn would be released.
Incredibly, as I was just about to post, the documents were released. CBS News’ Catherine Herridge posted the documents in a tweet which can be viewed below. The notes say: “What is our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?”
Please view Herridge’s and Techno Fog’s tweets below.
I will be posting on this story at 9:30 pm more fully. This is huge. This truly is a game changer.
This is what Solomon told Dobbs (prior to the release of the documents):
I think we’re going to learn tonight or early tomorrow morning, we will see the release of some new handwritten notes that the FBI failed to turn over to General Flynn and his team in over the three-year course in this legal battle. And those notes are going to show that the FBI was engaged in a conversation about how they could trick General Flynn into lying. Rather resolve the issues that the investigation was designed to, there are references in these notes, according to my sources, to quote “play games.” Do we want to resolve this or do we want to catch him in a lie?” If those are in the notes as my sources described them, it will put the FBI’s work on the Flynn case in the darkest possible light. You’ll actually have FBI proof that the FBI wasn’t trying to investigate facts neutrally, it was trying to quote “play a game.”
“Play a game, they were trying to frame a general, General Flynn, and the President’s National Security Advisor for pure political reasons. It’s outrageous. There’s not much of a hypothetical here, is there?”
To which Solomon replied:
“I don’t think these notes will leave any hypothesis left. It will be clear and convincing evidence that the FBI engaged in conduct that it’s not supposed to engage in. This was never designed, at least from these notes, to have been an honest interview. It was designed to try to entrap him. That’s why you see Sidney Powell, the General’s lawyer, using terms like ‘framing’ and ‘entrapment.’ I think these notes are going to make that case pretty strongly.”
Powell joined Dobbs on Tuesday night. Referring to her appearance on his program Tuesday evening, Dobbs added:
“As Sidney Powell said point blank on this broadcast, the FBI was trying to frame her client and I don’t see much room for dispute.”
