Rep. Devin Nunes Sounds The Alarm Key Record In The Flynn Case Is Now “Missing” (VIDEO)

Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, sounded the alarm on Sunday saying that the original documents summarizing the FBI interview where Flynn supposedly perjured himself are “missing.”

“The original report that was used to brief the United States Congress, that report is missing. It’s gone, poof, we can’t find it,” Nunes told Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’s Sunday Morning Futures.

Below is a partial transcript in context:

BARTIROMO: Where is the accountability for all of this, Congressman?

NUNES: Well — well, look, what you see is, behind closed doors, they weren’t as tough as what they were out on the cable news networks, where they were getting paid to pontificate.

In fact, they were quite weak and they were pathetic. And they really cowered down, because that was their opportunity to get on the record, what evidence did they have? And you see, when they’re on the chopping block and they can be busted for lying or misleading Congress, they got very, very weak.

However, you do see some discrepancies. There’s a lot of discrepancies in this testimony, not with just what they were saying out on the — out to the American public, but also what they said on the record in different places.


NUNES: And so we now know that the dossier was leaked. You now see — we have this in our report, by the way, right, the House Republican report that’s still the gold standard report.

We had in there that General Flynn didn’t lie. We had in there that the DNI was responsible for leaking the dossier to BuzzFeed, for confirming its existence to BuzzFeed. And, at that point, that was a classified — supposedly a classified document that would have been leaked, and then confirmed that the U.S. government had it.

So there’s a lot that needs to be looked at here. But, unfortunately, our report back in May of 2018, when it was released, is really — not only is it the gold standard report.


NUNES: It’s the only report that still upholds to any value at all, because the others are — either are under investigation or should be under investigation.

BARTIROMO: That’s correct. It is the gold standard, absolutely.

Let me ask you about this, because there’s news that we still need to break here. And that is the so-called Flynn 302. Now, the 302s is a reference meaning that this is notes that FBI agents took after they met with Flynn.

Explain what you think is in the 302 of Flynn. And why have we not seen the exchanges, the notes that the FBI agents took after their meeting in January 2017, when they ambushed General Flynn? Where is the Flynn 302, Congressman?


NUNES: Well, the 302 is still missing, Maria.

So here is what we know. This report, when it was taken down, after that report was transcribed, we had people at the highest level, the FBI, come and brief us. Plus, we have other sources that also gave us the same information that the FBI agents essentially said, look, there’s nothing to see here, Flynn wasn’t lying.

And that’s what we were told on the record. So we knew this at the beginning of 2017. So you can imagine my astonishment when it began to leak out in the press that General Flynn was being busted for lying to the FBI, and that that’s what the Mueller team, the dirty Mueller team, that’s what they were going to bust him on.


NUNES: And I told people at the highest levels of the FBI and the DOJ, I said, what are you doing here? Like, we have, on the record, from the highest-level people that he didn’t lie to the FBI. So, you know, I don’t care.

If that’s what you’re using, if you’re going to drop the charges on Flynn’s son or whatever conspiracy theory they were pedaling against General Flynn they had no possible way to bust him or indict him for lying to the FBI, because then that means that the FBI had lied to us, OK?

Now, so what happened? What happened is that that report was doctored, Maria.

And that report, we know it was doctored, because the lovebirds, we have the text messages of them doctoring the report. But here is the problem.

BARTIROMO: That’s right.

NUNES: The original report that was used to brief the United States Congress, that report is missing. It’s gone. Poof. It’s out of — we can’t find it.

BARTIROMO: Unbelievable. And it was doctored. OK.

NUNES: And I would think that’s something that we should have, and that’s something that General Flynn should have.
