Sidney Powell, the attorney representing former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, claims the FBI manipulated evidence to bring charges against her client.
Powell filed a motion claiming FBI personnel edited their interview records to bring legal action against Flynn.
Flynn’s legal team used text messages from government officials with discovery documents to paint a picture where the FBI cooked up and executed a strategy to entrap Flynn with lying to investigators.
Powell discussed the filing on Fox News:
President Trump responded.
“General Michael Flynn’s attorney is demanding that charges be immediately dropped after they found that FBI Agents manipulated records against him. They say that James Clapper told a reporter to “take a kill shot at Flynn. This has been a complete setup of Michael Flynn….

The president’s Tweet mentions the court filing claims former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told a reporter to take a kill shot on Flynn.
These allegations are outrageous and those involved with the conspiracy to entrap Flynn must be held accountable if proven true.
