Is this a mere technical error, or something more fundamental about the case against Michael Flynn? Recall that the former national security adviser pled guilty to a single count of obstruction nearly a year ago based on a representation by the FBI that he had materially misled the agents that interviewed him regarding his contacts with Russia. This case should have been over months ago, but the judge in the case all but told Flynn to keep requesting postponements so that he could atone more for his sins before sentencing.
In other words, this case should have been complete and unalterable by now. So what to make of this? Via Twitchy, which has more discussion on the topic:
New letter to the Court from DOJ on the Flynn case.
They misidentified the FBI agents' notes. 🤦♂️
