Another Delay in Michael Flynn Sentencing…

Yet another delay requested by the Special Counsel in the sentencing of Michael Flynn.

No doubt the left-wing media will spin the delay as the continued cooperation of Michael Flynn with Robert Mueller etc (the morale angle). However, with the primary prism of politics and political timing driving Team Mueller, it could just as easily be looked at as yet another delay to push away the ultimate outcome of dropped charges. You decide.

      Both Flynn and Papadopoulous should have grounds to withdraw their pleas given he information already in the public domain and any attorney who allows their client to be sentenced before additional information is declassified and they have the benefit of IG Horowitz’s next report are guilty of malpractice.

      Mueller cannot allow Flynn to be sentenced and then have Horowitz expose a fraudulent FISA scheme spearheaded by Agent Strzok. Think about what that would look like.

      Instead, Mueller needs to see what Horowitz discovers on FBI Agent Strzok, prior to making a final decision on Flynn.

        Greetings, Sundance … My hunch is the same. The IG’s next report could also reveal that Andrew McCabe falsified Peter Strzok’s “302” notes to make Michael Flynn appear guilty. Mueller doesn’t want the egg on his face that would result if he were to sentence Flynn for a crime Flynn never actually committed.

        Treepers may remember that there were two FBI agents present during General Flynn’s “ambush interview” — Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka — each of whom filled out their own Form 302. Senator Grassley requested copies of BOTH and also requested that FBI Agent Joe Pientka be made available to testify. Then, at some point when Senate investigators came to believe the Flynn interview 302 notes HAD been altered by McCabe, Senator Grassley notified IG Horowitz. For more info, here’s a link to Sundance’s June 2018 article … https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/06/08/senate-investigators-suspect-fbi-documents-were-manipulated-by-deputy-director-andrew-mccabe/

        Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t this related to Goodlatte’s request for the 302’s of Flynn’s interview with Strzok? The reason for the denial of the request is there is an an on-going investigation. As long as Mueller keeps Flynn from being sentenced, he can argue the investigation is not closed. (Mind you, I’m not saying that I agree with that argument.)

          This argument not valid, since Flynn has ALREADY PLEADED GUILTY, so NO ‘ongoing investigation’, unless it is an investigation of strozx wrongdoing.
          He already HAD egg on his face, for same reason
          To wit; You railroaded and accepted guilty plea of an innocent man?

          This also exposed a dirty little secret of plea bargaining; wouldn’t be the first time an innocent person has been forced to plead guilty in plea bargain; it HAPPENS.

        @SD…I don’t see the sentencing delay as a Mueller strategy.
        Flynn was sent into this den of conspiracy to expose the doctored F-302s. Lisa Page effectively did the same work from the other side, after McCabe tried to incriminate her and she revealed all the text message evidence. So Strzok is completely exposed.
        I think the sentencing delays have been at Huber’s request. He is building a larger case than just ‘Andy McCabe’. Yes, McCabe had the 302s changed, but he isn’t the ring leader, and the prosecution wants the big cheese. If it was only Andy they wanted, I think Huber would have let the sentencing – the exoneration – proceed. But it is much bigger than Andy.
        Flynn’s exoneration will be an 8.0 on the Richter scale. The perps will become incontinent, and will take some 5-sigma actions; they have some dreadful choices to make.

      They are completely dead to rights when it comes to Lt. General Michael Flynn! The fact that we are getting closer and closer to having it revealed that the 302s were doctored, they cannot at this point have this blow up in their faces. I have a funny feeling that prior to September 24th, we will know exactly what had occurred. By than, Muh Russia, Mueller, the 17 Angry Democrats, MSM etc. will have become fully exposed with everything they have done.

      Rudy has made it clear as day that Mueller has until the 6th of September before he, Sekulow and our President starts dropping MOABs on the head of Mueller and his band of thieves.

      Our President each day this week has been preparing the battlefield with his tweets directed at Mueller and the rest of the POS.

      Flynn will have his charges dropped and can finally say his side of the story because Americans will want him to be honored for everything he has done for our President and our country!

      • Flep- in recent weeks I have come to modify my opinion as to the idea that the Witch Hunt has gone on too long and should have been ended ages ago.

        Instead, I now believe that due to the fact that our President Trump is an amazing and peerless Genius of the first order, there is a very simple reason that he has allowed things to continue building to a crescendo as they have been doing.

        First, thanks to Divine Intervention, we dodged the bullet of the Hag getting elected. Now, the Witch Hunt has completely backfired on them and thanks to the Demon Dems’ insatiable lust for money and power, they have succeeded in revealing the depths of their depravity for all the world to see.

        If you just read Sundance’s articles for the last few years and all the information he has researched, analyzed and reported, we have a treasure trove of living proof as to how the Demon Dems were going to take down our President Trump and the rest of his supporters, aka “The Deplorables.”

        We now know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the CIA, FBI and InJustice Department are evil and corrupt from top to bottom and must be dismantled with extreme prejudice.

        If this story had not been allowed to play out the way it did and the way it continues on a daily basis, no one would ever BELIEVE half of what our Sundance has uncovered as well as his colleagues in the Free Media.

        I think that our brilliant President Trump has known all along what the game was and he has played it brilliantly. He is a true Master of the Universe and there is not one of those evil bastards on the other side who even comes close to his genius.

        God bless our President Trump and Sundance.

      The request to postpone filing even a status report is signed jointly by Mueller and Flynn’s defense attorneys, presumably with Flynn’s permission. Flynn has no grounds to complain about a delay he is requesting.

      Judge Sullivan should have more self-respect than to allow his court to be used like this. He should simply deny the motion for an extension, and insist on having the report by August 24, 2018. He should then decree that Mueller present ALL evidence is the case, including ALL versions of 302’s, including drafts, and require testimony under oath from Strzok and Pientka.

      What your saying is exactly right, when judge asking “ready for trial”, but that’s not what’s pending here.
      There WAS no TRIAL, as defendant Flynn pleaded guilty.
      All that’s pending here, is a sentencing hearing. That’s why this is so unusual.

      And yes, if Flynn exonerated and Mueller totally discredited, this adds to the $ Flynn can ask for when suing mueller: the emotional distress of having this hang over his head all this time.
      There IS ruled regarding ‘speedy trial’, no rules regarding ‘speedy sentencing’; that’s how unusual this tactic is, it’s never or rarely come up, before.

      Will the IG report about FISA shenaningans drop before november? If it does Strzok and his whole behavior in that one would cast more doubt onto the Flynn case and the 302’s from the Flynn interview(presumably changed by Strzok).

          Similar with Papa D, as far as I read it he did not lie to FBI or Mueller, they just pull stuff out of context (as he was indeed not yet working for Trump, while in EU); so the only reason for his plea deal is the entrapment using that FBI/CIA asset posing as some business person (and acc. to Mueller, posing as an Israeli, so somehow PapaD should have know the guy was a spy, although he wasn’t)

        • There is good reason to assume that the Flynn interview was entrapment and worse.
          The more we know about Strzok(who interviewed Flynn) the more it appears there is exculpatory evidence previously not known.

          Some more:
          https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/06/08/senate-investigators-suspect-fbi-documents-were-manipulated-by-deputy-director-andrew-mccabe/
          If you follow all the news from back when Strzoks friend Rudy Contreras was taken off the Flynn case in ’17 then there is no doubt that Flynn with every revelation gets a better position.
          Him pleading guilty in a deal means nothing if exculpatory evidence was withheld.

          Everything Flynn presumably did was anyway not so bad that Mueller had big leverage on him.(compared to lets say Manafort)
          In that context it makes no sense that there are so many delays for such a clear cut case..

          If the Flynn case was dead 6 months ago the whole Mueller probe would be dead already.
          That’s the motive for Mueller to keep delaying.
          For Team Trump and Flynn their motive is to play along until the point where they deem it is time to go for the K.O.

          Would Trump air the final episode of The Apprentice on a Monday morning? Nah
          The goal was to milk the situation until the midterms. They sure have some more playboy bunnies and a fake N-tape ready come October and dems would have regrouped already if Trump had revealed it all at once last year.
          He surely knows most details since a long time and just advances the ball downfield from time to time.

          I also still think that Sessions and Trump are playing games. If Sessions acted in a big sweep it also would have been over already. Hence all the delays and blockading.

          -Midterms ’18 are probably the most important elections for Trump. It will determine how much he will be able to implement until 2020 and beyond-

          Looking at Team Trump from that viewpoint everything makes sense.

      There is no “appeal” from a guilty plea, especially not a plea bargain. If Flynn does not move to withdraw his guilty plea, based on prosecutorial misconduct, habeas corpus or “post-conviction” relief is all the “appeal” he’s got (short of a presidential commutation or pardon). If it goes that far, Flynn’s situation is going to be very very tough–standards are very high/strict for habeas corpus relief. I hope and think it likely that the delays may be Mule-ass maneuvering for a face-saving way to avoid having his entire office shiite-canned. Like maybe he can just throw Stroker under the bus for forging 302s and salvage a tiny bit of credibility for some of his other “angry Demonrat” persecutors.

      Strzok lied to create the lying to the FBI charge.

      The AG is allowing this travesty, this abuse, to continue. SHAME ON SESSIONS. This is garbage. The judge is a disgrace as well.

      I don’t think Flynn was a plant at all. He clashed repeatedly with Bari when the latter was POTUS and Flynn was DNI. He was to become NSA head under Trump and whatever he didn’t already know, he’d soon discover. They had to ensure that didn’t happen.

    Make Herr Mueller appear before the judge. Put him on the record! Ask him about his so-called evidence ON THE RECORD!

      PS. It’s obvious, from what Judge Ellis has said, these judges are being threatened to do Herr Mueller’s bidding. That is banana republic/police state tactics. Are we Mexico run by the cartels? Shut this crap down now! Yes, I had one nerve left and the Mueller clown show is stomping on it.

        So, then Judge Ellis has a lot of decisions to make for sentancing. What are his options, at this point?

        He literally said to the prosecution that this was a witch hunt. Will he reccommend monetary restitution only? There was never an audit by the IRS, and Manafort never was given the opportunity to retroactively register as a Freign Agent. I am not even sure he needed to, as Manafort was a registered lobbyist, from what I read.

        The banking fraud is another story…not sure what to make of that. But seeing that Manafort was in solitary confinement for this long, could Ellis just blow up the sentance?

    I have noticed a pattern.

    Each time a Mueller target pleads, or is just interviewed, the media rats run with how they “flipped” and are going to “get” Trump. McGahn, and Cohen being the latest.

    Remember when we were told Papadopoulus had flipped, cooperated, and even WORE A WIRE! GASP! it must be curtains for Trump.

    According to Mueller’s letter, he is asking for 0-6 months in jail, for Papa, while pointing out that Alex van der Zwaas who also pled guilty, got 30 days. So all Mueller is asking for is 30 days and a $9500 fine,

    and Mueller said Papa “Did NOT provide substantial assistance.”

    If Papa had not met Mifsud, Halper, or Tawil, Mueller would have had NO CASE on Papa. And it sure appears all three were government informants, directed by someone, my guess is Strzok.

    George Papa if you are listening, if I were you I would go to trial, you have an entrapment defense.

    My guess is if Team Mueller can’t entice you to plead guilty to SOMETHING,
    THEY WILL DROP THE CHARGES BEFORE THEY RISK EXPOSING THE GOVERNMENT SET YOU UP WITH GOVERNMENT “INFORMANTS.”

    Ever want to commit a peaceful act of resistance? A “We Are Flynn” moment? Like flooding SC Mueller’s offices with an abundance of our personal details, so blindingly dull that even the most committed intern would #walkaway. If these unelected investigators want to see our elected leaders’ dirty laundry, someday all of ours, too, maybe we should give them precisely what they want. Drown them in confessional nonsense. You want to surveil my personal life? Here’s hours of boring audio, I forget where the good parts are, so you’ll have to listen to all of it. You get the idea. …

  30. At some point, either you’ve got the evidence to convict…or you don’t.

    Inspector Javert bags another one! Of all the people Javert (Mueller) went after, only Dr. Steven Hatfill got away. He lost his job and his reputation — somehow the media found out about his fibbing about one of his degrees — but he got $4.6 million from us (the taxpayers) when Mueller failed to bag him. Still I wonder if Dr. Hatfill wouldn’t have rather had his job, reputation and life as it was before Mueller’s FBI put him in the crosshairs for something he didn’t do.

    He plead guilty. There are no charges to drop anymore.

    The default event will be sentencing.

    Now, it’s totally possible something else is going on. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re waiting to see who has control of congress. Dems take control, Flynn pleads guilty because investigations halt. Reps take control, Flynn attempts to change plea because it all comes out.

    Allowing this whole mess to last this long is a travesty. The investigation should never have been dependent on who controls congress. There should have been special counsels appointed more than a year ago.

    The only remedy now is declassification. It must be done.

      Until the plea is accepted in court it can be revoked, if you don’t believe me find and take a look at how many questions (and what sort of questions) a person has to answer in the affirmative to the presiding judge have the plea accepted.

    Maybe they want to wait until they can get maximum political benefit. Everything hinges on the midterms. Right now they’re handling Papadopoulos, Manafort, and Cohen. The president may commute their sentences or even pardon them down the road, but not right now. It’s hard to imagine the president allowing Flynn to spend one night in federal prison. If the president pardons Flynn in September or October than Mueller can immediately subpoena the president or release a report alleging obstruction right before the election to turn out the democrat base.

      Not if the 302’s are declassified. We already have one FBI agen who can attest to the interview and the consnsus that Flynn was innocent. Corroberating texts from Page on the timeline.

      “(g) Your client agrees that the sentencing in this case may be delayed until your client’s efforts to cooperate have been completed, as determined by the Government, so that the Court will have the benefit of all relevant information before a sentence is imposed.”

      Flynn has agreed to all delays in sentencing.

    I wrote this in the Cohen thread … Politico article says sentencing hearings might reveal parts of the investigation that Mueller would like to keep under wraps.

    Flynn might be OK with all of the delays because he doesn’t want to go to prison any sooner than absolutely necessary.

    Cursive signatures should be legible, i.e. readable, when applied to a legal document, else the document should be declared null and void. See signature of Robert Mueller, this article.

    General Flynn has a constitutional right to a speedy trial. Oh…wait…Mueller has tossed our constitution and replaced it with “do whatever it takes to get Trump and CYA.”

    I believe the Flynn team is OK with the delay because the longer it takes, the more truth congress, judicial watch, and the handful of investigative reporters bring to sunlight. Thus I believe the longer it takes for the sentencing the more favorable the result for Flynn.
