Cleaning out the Bureau - Mission Details:

Michael heads to Darnell Bros to meet up with Lester. They're soon joined by Dave. Dave says the shit is about to hit the fan and says if Michael sorts out a problem for him, he'll get Haines off of his back. Michael asks what will happen if he doesn't to which Dave replies that he will go to jail and Michael will get shot.

Haines joins the group, asking if Dave had briefed them yet. Haines' illegal activity is under threat of being exposed. He wants Michael to destroy any evidence there is against him. However, Lester cannot hack the system and the only way to access it is through the FIB buildings.

Haines' says to Michael that if he does this, he'll make sure all his files are deleted too, giving Michael a clean slate. Micheal agrees but says it's the last thing he'll do for the Haines and the FIB. Michael and Lester head to the FIB building to scope it out.

To gain entry to the building, Lester comes up with a plan. They'll steal an ID badge from one of the janitors. He found a particular guy called Harvey Molina. They wait outside the FIB's parking garage for Harvey to leave in his car and tail him back to his apartment in West Vinewood.

Michael follows Harvey into his apartment and says he'll fill Harvey's pockets with money. All he's got to do is take a little vacation and give Michael his overalls and ID. Harvey agrees and gives Michael a duffle bag filled with the items.

Michael and Lester head back to Darnell Bros where Franklin is waiting for them. Michael tells Franklin of the job and Lester tells them he needs more information, particularly blueprints of the FIB building. Franklin agrees to tail the building's designer, Chip Peterson, to get them.
