A former member of Robert Mueller’s investigative team and current FBI official has stated that he believes the Flynn prosecution was an attempt to “get Trump” and the investigation into Russian Collusion was looking for something that was “not there.”
FBI agent William J. Barnett was interviewed on September 17th at the request of Attorney General Bill Barr in a review of the case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

“Barnett thought the case theory was ‘supposition on supposition,’” the 302 stated, and added that the “predication” of the Flynn investigation was “not great,” and that it “was not clear” what the “persons opening the case wanted to ‘look for or at.’”
