Documents released last week have helped fill in the timeline of events that preceded a leak to The Washington Post that is central to the federal case against Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser.
House Intelligence Committee transcripts released Thursday show that several Justice Department officials, Obama White House officials and others in the administration denied being the source of the leak, which WaPo columnist David Ignatius published on Jan. 12, 2017.
The Justice Department also released emails and interview transcripts that show when FBI officials began discussing the Logan Act, an obscure law that the FBI and Justice Department initially wanted to apply to Flynn’s case.
