WASHINGTON The Justice Department recently opened an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the FBI's interview of Michael Flynn while he was serving as President Donald Trump's national security adviser, according to two people familiar with the inquiry.
Flynn pleaded guilty to giving false statements to the FBI during that interview, but recently asked to withdraw that plea, further delaying his sentencing.
Attorney General William Barr asked the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri, Jeffrey Jensen, to look into Flynn's FBI interview, the people familiar with the inquiry said. The inquiry began within the past month, they said.
Around that same time, federal prosecutors on the Flynn case came under pressure from senior Justice Department officials to recommend a lighter sentence for Flynn than they had proposed, according to people familiar with the matter.
A third person familiar with the inquiry said Jensen is broadly reviewing the Flynn case.
Asked about the inquiry into Flynn's FBI interview, a spokesperson for Jensen said, "I can't answer those questions" and directed questions to the Justice Department.

I don’t give a flip what Barr does anymore, a s s h o l e
Here is the only trend I look at and do not believe anything anyone in DC says, points toward or hints at:
Stone - Guilty
Flynn - Guilty
Papadopoulos - Guilty
Gates - Guilty
Cohen - Guilty
McCabe - No Crime
Comey - No Crime
Brennan - No Crime
Clapper - No Crime
Podesta - No Crime
Hitlery - No Crime
How dumb do these people think we are?
Most of you, at least those who post, are childish.
We don’t have public hangings, they don’t arrest judges, and all the other things you scream for like babies.
Barr is a professional and btw there is nothing wrong for our side in this particular story.
Some days you eat the Barr, and some days he eats you.
They know that if they could get away with Epstein in broad daylight (just like JFK) they can get away with ANYTHING.
The FBI can fabricate FD-302s anytime it chooses because shut up.
NBC? This will be well received by supporters of FLynn. Interesting to see NBC flying top cover for Bagpipe Bill on this one. What the heck is going on?
I guess barr needs to vindicate all of Flynn’s FBlie interviewers!
In case you didn’t notice, this story is about reviewing whether Flynn was mistreated.
You want a Justice syste. that reads like a scorecard? I don’t.
Throwing out a bone to shut us up. Why else is this being reported TODAY?
Breaking: Michael Avanatti was convicted on all three counts in the Nike extortion case.
I dont know what Barr is up to but look at these two US Attorneys he has put on the case this week. One to see what the hell happened with Flynn, the other to look into Rudys Ukrainian research. No one is more pi$$ed off about McCabe than me but these two picks dont look like typical swamp justice.
It’s funny because up to this point you are the only one who has mentioned public hangings, arresting judges, and screaming babies.
How dumb do these people think we are?
In their bubble echo chamber, we are gun-crazy, beer-guzzling, sports- and smartphone-consumed, porn-adicted, Walmart-loving hicks.
I don’t believe I’ll be holding my breath.
Flynn’s crime was making public his intent as head of the NSC to clean house and reduce the political holdovers that had ballooned the committee to 400 or more heads. The Swamp was not about to let him do that. He also criticized the Obama administration for their Iran bribe deal.
The piece of “evidence” that got him in the most trouble was when he was invited to a promotional ceremony by RT (Russian Television) and seated at the same table as Vladimir Putin. From then on he was targeted as a Russian agent. This was completely debunked by the Mueller report but not until the DOJ had ruined his life and drained his finances to the point he had to sell his house. When Mueller’s agents threatened to drag his son into the case based on later debunked charges he folded to the advice of his corrupt legal team and took a plea. Sidney Powell is doing everything she can under the law to reverse this travesty.
