The Justice Department announced that it has unearthed further information related to the FBI’s investigation of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, including more notes taken by fired special agent Peter Strzok.
H/T: Washington Examiner
Michael Sherwin, the acting U.S. attorney in the nation’s capital, said Tuesday that the documents handed over to Flynn’s defense team included handwritten notes from Strzok taken at a meeting on Jan. 25, 2017; notes from former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tashina Gauhar at the same meeting; an internal DOJ document dated Jan. 30, 2017; and handwritten notes from then-acting Attorney General Dana Boente which were dated March 30, 2017. The notes remain sealed by the court.

The DOJ has produced MORE evidence to Flynn's team.
1) Handwritten notes from Strzok and former Deputy AG Gauhar - from the day after the Flynn interview (1/25/17)
2) Internal DOJ memo (1/30/17; may have cleared Flynn)
3) Notes of former Acting AG Dana Boente pic.twitter.com/NPX0KfXRkg
For reference - we were able to get Gauhar's calendar for the day after Flynn was interviewed (1/25/17).— Techno Fog (@Techno_Fog) July 7, 2020
The notes indicate a meeting Gauhar attended with the FBI at the NSD SCIF.
Suspicion: did they review the original (and missing) Flynn 302 at that meeting? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/ZbftfbDbc2

#FLYNN Newly uncovered handwritten notes filed under protective order today include former Deputy Attorney General Tashina Gauhar whose work is said to overlap Clinton emails and FISA.
