A newly unredacted portion of the House Intel Report reveals Comey told lawmakers that the FBI agents who interviewed General Flynn did not detect any deception.
Comey’s testimony to lawmakers proves he’s lying to reporters today about General Flynn.
In a March 2017 briefing then-FBI Director James Comey had with the House Intel Committee, he told members that the FBI agents who interviewed General Flynn “saw nothing that indicated to them that [General Flynn] knew he was lying to them.”
The report further reveals Andrew McCabe was conflicted because even though the FBI agents had detected no deception in Flynn, the former NatSec Advisor’s statements clashed with what the FBI knew because of wiretapped conversations between Flynn and Russian Ambassador Kislyak.
Perhaps General Flynn just didn’t recall everything perfectly?
It’s obvious they were looking to trap General Flynn in anyway possible.
“Director Comey testified to the committee that ‘the agents…discerned no physical indications of deception. They didn’t see any change in posture, in tone, in inflection, in eye contact. They saw nothing that indicated to them that he knew he was lying to them….’

Comey has been traveling around giving media interviews about his newly released book, “A Higher Loyalty.”
James Comey has told Bret Baier, George Stephanopoulos and Chuck Todd conflicting statements about General Flynn’s interview with FBI agents.
Notice how carefully weasel Comey talks in media blitzes ‘not to my recollection’ or ‘I don’t remember intending to say that.’
Byron York reported:
Comey has been asked about the matter in some of the publicity interviews he has given for his new book, A Higher Loyalty. In those interviews, Comey has denied telling lawmakers that the agents who interviewed Flynn did not believe Flynn had lied.
“No,” Comey told Fox News’ Bret Baier. “I don’t know what — maybe someone misunderstood something I said. I didn’t believe that and didn’t say that.”
“Not true,” Comey told NBC’s Chuck Todd.
“I don’t know where that’s coming from,” Comey told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. “That — unless I’m — I said something that people misunderstood, I don’t remember even intending to say that. So my recollection is I never said that to anybody.”
Investigative reporter Sara Carter also blasted Comey after the newly unredacted portion of the House Intel report was released:
#Breaking @Comey either has a bad memory or lied to @BretBaier about his recollection of the 2 FBI agents who interviewed Michael Flynn about his conversation. The FBI agents did not detect deception in the interview, Comey told Congress. Page 53/54https://t.co/oro5cHyiI2
