A senior FBI official's handwritten notes from the earliest days of the Trump administration expressed concern that the bureau might be "playing games" with a counterintelligence interview of then-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to get him to lie so "we could prosecute him or get him fired."

Multiple officials confirmed to Just the News that the author of the notes is William Priestap, the now-retired FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence and the ultimate supervisor for fired agent Peter Strzok, who led the Russia probe.

Wow.— Rep. Doug Collins (@RepDougCollins) April 29, 2020
The evidence couldn’t be any clearer: The FBI completely set up General Flynn.
He should be exonerated, and the rogue FBI agents MUST be held accountable.https://t.co/yRpvxkIwVn
The truth has officially come out.— Ryan Fournier (@RyanAFournier) April 29, 2020
General Michael Flynn was setup by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Their goal was to get him to lie so they could prosecute him or get him fired.
Each and every person behind this should be prosecuted IMMEDIATELY!
