Rep Mark Meadows (R-NC) suggested on a Thursday interview with The Hill that evidence in the Mike Flynn case may have been tampered with - something long hinted at by insiders close to the Congressional investigations. 

Meadows, the leader of the conservative House Freedom Caucus and a close ally of President Trump's, said he and other lawmakers are finding evidence of possible tampering, an allegation he previously made at a House hearing where Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified. -The Hill

"Justice should be meted out evenly, and yet we’re finding that evidence could have been tampered with," Meadows said.

In particular, Meadows pointed to the "302" reports - which are summaries of FBI interviews with suspects or witnesses. 

"I brought this up with the inspector general the other day.  Some of those key witness will be asked to appear before House Oversight," he added.

The question about the FBI interview reports, he said, was "were they changed to change the outcome of prosecution decisions. I think they might have."

"We’re not going to yield until we get an answer," he added. -The Hill

During Tuesday testimony in front of a joint hearing of the House Judiciary and Oversight committee, IG Horowitz said he is investigating allegations that FBI officials "edited" agents' 302 forms.

It has been long suspected that fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe had agents edit or delete the "302" forms created after former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn's interview. 

Don't do many predictions, but here goes: the Flynn 302 is a composite 302. The source materials were not just edited but deleted prior to Flynn's prosecution.
There is precedent for this: Mueller's #2 Weissmann destroyed 302s and drafts/notes.

Journalist Sara Carter - known of late for her access to leaks by "white hat" actors in the intelligence community, sat down with Sean Hannity in late January where she discussed McCabe's firing and suggested "there's indicators right now that McCabe may have asked FBI agents to actually change their 302's

Hannity: A source of mine told me tonight that when Wray read this, it shocked him to his core.

Sara Carter: Shocked him to his core, and not only that, the Inspector General's report - I have been told tonight by a number of sources, there's indicators right now that McCabe may have asked FBI agents to...
