The FBI Interview with former National Security Advisor Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn has been a bone of contention ever since it happened. Former Director James Comey has had various versions of what he believed Michael Flynn did during the interview. Did the FBI agents think he lied? Obviously, there are some who think that Flynn did not lie. Here is how they get to reveal what they saw.
As Written and Reported By Sara Carter:

If asked, Pientka will also give his personal opinion as to whether or not that was actually the case.
