RICOCHET EXCLUSIVE: The FBI has reportedly turned over a note found in Melania’s Trump’s closet to federal prosecutors and attorneys for the House January 6 Special Committee. It is believed to be from Vladimir Putin to Donald Trump authorizing the Jan 6 insurrection. Details have yet to emerge.
Attorney General Garland said that because there is an ongoing investigation, only the New York Times and Washington Post can receive any additional information.
One source said the note is in code and Rep. Adam Schiff has announced that a whistleblower who has seen the note and also knows the code says it is damning evidence of planning for the Jan 6 outrage.
One person on the Mar-a-Lago household staff told this reporter that she witnessed an FBI agent excitedly waiving a receipt for a Versace jacket purchased for the First Lady in an expensive shop on the Via Condotti and that other agents were rushing to examine it. It is unclear as to whether this might be the coded note in question.
MSNBC is planning a special with interviews with code-breaking specialists from federal agencies who will speculate on the content of the note. A spokesperson for Rep. Cheney said that she is troubled but not surprised.
