This memo, posted by RonIsXenu, is dealing with Michael Meisner, who was the B1 (Intell Bureau) agent who finally went to the feds with his story of their burglaries of the fedreal offices, tapping IRS meetings, etc, which produced the raid of July 1977. His code name here is "Herb."
The story of how they tried to imprison him and how he finally escaped to the feds will be found in the Stipulation of Evidence.
Of note, there is mention here of handwriting samples the feds might want to make the connection to him (from logs in federal buildings). The feds did that. They asked for them from a guy who worked in the Legal Bureau of the DC org by the name of Rick Moxon. The FBI noted how Moxon gave them false samples and cited his obstruction of the investigation. He is now the cult's lead attorney.
