A bombshell revelation by The Hill’s John Solomon pointed to a document held by the Defense Intelligence Agency which could potentially exonerate retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.
Solomon spoke about the existence of the document, which he said even President Donald Trump was not aware of, in an appearance on Fox News on Thursday.
The “Hannity” panel, which included Solomon, addressed the latest developments in the case of Trump’s former national security adviser who awaits sentencing for lying to the FBI.
U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan has ordered that documents related to Flynn’s FBI interview in 2017 be turned over to him, sparking speculation that the case against him could be tossed out due to the circumstances surrounding Flynn’s conversations with FBI agents.
“Let me say this about Mike Flynn,” Solomon told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday.
“In May 2017, there was a document identified to a small number of people in the United State government. It’s in the possession of the Defense Intelligence Agency,” he revealed.
“For 18 months there’s been an effort to resist declassifying that document,” the award-winning investigative journalist said.
“I know that that document contains extraordinary exculpatory information about General Flynn,” Solomon shared. “I don’t believe the president has ever been told about this document. One lawmaker discovered it but he was thwarted by the Defense Intelligence Agency in his ability to disclose it.”
He called for an effort to be made to release the document and reveal the information contained within it, in the hopes it could “enlighten” Judge Sullivan.
“I think we all should ask for that declassification,” Solomon said. “Get that out. It may enlighten the judge. It will certainly enlighten the American public.”
The extraordinary revelation sparked a cry on social media to get the word out and for the document to be de-classified.

@realDonaldTrump Declassify and force the DIA to turn over Doc that will exonerate @GenFlynn from the phony crimes that the real criminal Treasonists running the Persecutions have in fact committed. #EqualJustice #MAGADC2019

I just want to see this episode closed. Judge Sullivan tosses out the case due to prosectors’ mishandling. Flynn withdraws his plea. Judge clears his name. Finish Fini.
So sick of all corruption in (un)justice system??
