As reported by washingtonexaminer.com

Newly unredacted portions of the House Intelligence Committee Republican report on the Trump-Russia investigation contain previously unknown information about what then-FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers about the Michael Flynn investigation.

Comey briefed the House in March 2017. In that briefing, he told members that the FBI agents who interviewed Flynn, then the national security adviser, “saw nothing that indicated to them that [Flynn] knew he was lying to them.”

But the House report also says the FBI’s then-deputy director, Andrew McCabe, called the Flynn case a “conundrum,” because while the FBI agents did not see anything to indicate Flynn was lying, Flynn’s statements were nevertheless at odds with what the FBI knew about a wiretapped conversation between Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in December 2016.

“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,'” the report says, quoting Comey.

This is huge for Flynn’s case. It is quiet possible that Flynn truly did not know he was lying and misunderstood the line of questioning.
