Hold the Phone on Flynn Sentencing – Judge Emmet Sullivan Has Questions…

Interesting, very interesting.  As noted in the Flynn sentencing memo last night there were some curiously framed explanations of events surrounding his FBI inquisition.

Now Judge Emmet Sullivan wants expanded information, and wishes to see the actual notes (FD-302) that were mentioned by Flynn; and Judge Sullivan is directing the special counsel to provide all documents created by the FBI surrounding the Flynn interview:

    Maybe this judge (who has done some good stuff in the past) will finally throw this crap back in the SC’s face. SC has been getting away with too much for too long with the judges going along for the ride.

      rf121, and McCabe tells him not to have an attorney with him which was not a good move. Flynn to believing that they were there to actually make him a criminal. We know he wanted to protect his son and that should have been enough for him to hire a real attorney. Thinking our FBI/CIA/NSA would not be this nasty did not occur to him as for many of us before we got informed also thought these agencies were for America and not the Clintons. I do hope the judge will dismiss the whole thing.

        If Judge Sullivan rules that the whole premise of the Special Counsel is based in fallacious origins does he have any power to negate anything/everything Mueller has done, including referrals to SDNY? If so, that may explain the hand-off in trying to hold on to anything AND knowing that the slightly brain-impaired new NYDA is ready to drop everything except all things Trump.

      One of the more perplexing and disappointing parts of the last 3 years and of course the Mueller sham has been to realize and directly observe many judges as accomplices in the crimes being perpetrated. I think this fellow is not one of the tribe, we shall see ? Although it is clear the FISA judges were and still are complicit in much of what has transpired. They can all read just like we can and it is obvious the Dossier should not have been used and anybody going along with it should be prosecuted ! So far not a peep out of any of them or the SCOTUS who oversees them ? So we see how this deeply corrupted system sustains it self, like bacteria multiplying to stay alive ! CYA on steroids.

      Many Judges are a serious threat to our Republic and some need to be prosecuted. Don’t forget about the female judge in Portland last year that deliberately let the illegal alien out the back door, her chambers door, so ICE could not apprehend him and he was there on a felony ! ICE were in the court room to take him and she let the guy go ! Now there is a same exact case in Mass. I believe, of the same thing ! So it seems we can conclude many judges are out of control as well as politicos and agencies. In fact it is clear some are criminals as well just like some in DOJ/FBI and congress !

      I say let the prosecutions begin in all of these events ASAP or it means we have no real laws !

        Well, then maybe the judge can just dismiss the case, since they admitted violating Flynn’s rights to an attorney and the FBI equivalent of a Miranda warning. They CONSPIRED to do it, too, which amounts to another crime. They admitted that, too. If the 302s were lost or destroyed, then the judge could call the agents to court to examine them under oath (and penalty of perjury) in order to recreate the 302s in person. (In a just world)

          I have to watch CNN at re hab, and even though it is on closed caption, I am just appalled that they have ignored any sense of the law, and already have the masses believing the President is a liar on everything, and will be serving jail time soon.. And if he isn’t it’s because he has the courts and crooks in the FBI and DOJ on his side.

        Maybe the FBI agents – Pientka and Strzok – can be called in to testify under oath. Judge Sullivan isn’t going to just hand out a guilty plea with only probation if he thinks Flynn was railroaded improperly and potentially innocent (as we all think Flynn didn’t commit any crime at all). Sullivan is wise to Mueller and Weissman in other cases.

        The SC might play that game, but the Judge is ordering the Defense to produce a Memorandum, and, a 302 dated 8-27-2017, that the D cited in its sentencing motion. This implies that the Defense possesses one or more 302’s the judge doesn’t have, and is likely to produce it. Unfortunately the judge talks about filing under seal — IOW, more secrets from the American.

        Is my memory playing tricks, or did this same Judge order the SC to produce ALL exculpatory information months and months ago. Wonder what he’ll think if some creeps out now…

        If the exculpatory evidence required by Judge Sullivan proves to have been tampered with or destroyed, and no duplicate original can be produced, me thinks Judge Sullivan may tell the prosecutors that because the Brady rule was not complied with, the defendant waived his trial rights without full knowledge of the facts for and against him, thus permitting him to withdraw his plea.

        That will put the entire prosecutions case, including FBI witnesses in an incredible, impeachable, posture.

        If it happens, it will be the right outcome for the bass turds.

        @SD…Perhaps that will be the outcome. But that could have happened a few months ago. Why were there several sentencing delays? From the time Colyer recused Contreras, Sullivan ordered the exculpatory evidence be turned over. That is when the delay began. I said a long time ago that Flynn would be exonerated. Looking forward to that.

      Judge Emmet Sullivan has several times called out Mueller and his attack dogs. When it was found Mueller had held back on information that Flynn’s lawyers could have used in his defense – the Judge made Mueller furnish ALL information he had withheld. I think the loser in Flynn’s case will end up being Mueller and his thugs — he looks worse with each step in Flynn’s case. Too much information has come to light since the original filings against the General.

      FWIW, Miranda warnings are only required if the defendant/target is “in custody.” If a police officer approaches you in a coffee shop, for example, and begins talking and you confess to a crime, that confession will be admissible.

      Also, it is legal for law enforcement to “lay a trap” for criminals. An example would be a member of the vice squad posing as a prostitute to arrest the “Johns.”

      Here the government would argue that Flynn was not in custody, that Flynn’s statements were voluntary and, as such, no warnings were needed. To show this, the government sentencing memo references the “facts” that Flynn was “jocular” and “relaxed” and offered to give a “little tour” of the office. From the caselaw, these types of facts are accepted by judges as indications that a defendant did not perceive himself to be “in custody.” As such, statements would be deemed “voluntary.” Further, like the vice squad member, the agents merely presented Flynn with an opportunity to break the law. That is allowable and Flynn, according to the government, did in fact break the law by lying.

      IMO, the law should be changed.

          According to common practice, and information already published elsewhere … Flynn copped the plea to BS charges because the FBI/DOJ told him if he did not do so …. they were going after his son, and the rest of his family, and would bankrupt them all with “the process”! They had already destroyed Flynn financially, and the threat of doing it to his family made him do it. Nothing more, nothing less.

          Ask Caputo, from East Aurora, NY about how they work. Caputo has already testified about exactly what, and how, they did it to him. Caputo went public, and refused to plead out … and because he already had ‘gone public’ the DOJ/FBI backed off – but you can bet they are still watching every move he makes!

    Check out the date on the FD-302 mentioned in Flynn’s attorney’s Memorandum. See footnote 23 on page 9. The FD-302 is dated August 22, 2017. But the interview of Flynn was seven months earlier on January 24, 2017. Did Peter Strozk wait seven months to draft the FD-302? I don’t think so.

    Here is something rather curious. Peter Strozk was fired from his position with the Special Counsel on August 16, 2017. That is 6 days before the FD-302 was prepared. Did Strzok wait seven months to write up the FD-302 and then only finished 6 days after he was fired from the Special Counsel’s team? I don’t think so.

    Some funny business went on. Perhaps both Strozk and his partner both prepared FD-302s in a timely manner and they were later compiled into the FD-302 that is dated August 22, 2017. There are text messages where Strozk and Page talk about whether McCabe is OK with the Flynn FD-302. Those text messages were shortly after the interview, not in August. The Judge wants to see the originals.

  24. Hmmm... says:

    The sequence of events surrounding Flynn getting charged has always seemed a bit odd to me. The charges were revealed and the next day the Stzrok texts were revealed which lead to the original judge being forced off the case as well as revealing bias in the agent who interviewed Flynn. It is interesting to me because the texts could have been revealed before the charges were filed which may have changed some minds as to whether or not to charge Flynn at all.

    I see two possibilities for this order of events: It could have simply been a reaction to action of the Special Counsel in order to counter their move or it could have been deliberately held in order to bait the Special Counsel to charge Flynn in order to use it to reveal the blatant misconduct used by the FBI and Special Counsel to make the charges. Despite the lack of success from these optimistic scenarios lately I still lean towards the second explanation.

    It just seems as though the charges being filed ratchets up the liability for prosecutorial misconduct significantly therefore if there was evidence of it then it would be prudent to wait until the charges were filed before revealing that evidence which is exactly what appears to have happened. If the Flynn case falls apart and especially if gross misconduct is revealed it will destroy the credibility of the entire Special Counsel.

        Credit to Techno Fog but the most likely explanation is a composite FD-302. That really would explain everything quite neatly. It’s a tactic Weissman has used in the past and it explains the Stzrok texts about the 302s as well.

        If I understand the idea behind it then it is the perfect tool for them to use. Two agents write up their 302s. Stzrock knows in advance what will happen so he words things in a precise manner. The original 302’s are “lost” and a composite is made using bits of the originals (taken out of context of course) to paint whatever picture they want. Just like the press takes things out of context to mean things they did not originally mean they could do this with the composite FD-302 while maintaining the ability to truthfully say that they wrote those lines.

        This would explain why the DOJ has refused to turn over the 302s. It explains the odd texts about the 302s. And it explains how the final version was written after Stzrock was fired.

        It would have likely worked without a hitch with the original judge assigned to the case. I do not think it will work this time especially with Weissman’s history. The dog eating your homework excuse isn’t likely to work a second time with a suspicious teacher.

    General Michael Flynn was the Deep State’s first target of the Trump Adminstration. Serving as President Trump’s first National Security Adviser, his tenure lasted less than a month before being forced to resign.

    General Flynn got screwed. At the same time though, Mueller is screwed if Judge Emmet Sullivan does the right thing. The DOJ/FBI’s handling of the Flynn case taints the entire Mueller witch hunt. Michael Flynn should pull a Corsi and sue the bastards. I have a feeling he will, and he will win! We are all going to win if we keep praying for good. God is GREAT!

    Judge Sullivan is working overtime, trying to give Flynn’s lawyers every chance to request a dismissal of charges because General Flynn’s right not to incriminate himself were violated. This whole thing is rather strange, but I already covered that in a post on a different thread. However, it does appear as though General Flynn’s lawyers are trying in around about way, to bring attention to the court that their client’s rights were violated, while the General is still intent on taking the plea deal.

      Flynn lawyers cleverly did contest it in their request for leniency. If Judge Sullivan finds any misconduct with the 302s or anything else he will take the appropriate action – which hopefully will be ultimately dropping the plea. Judge Sullivan has nailed the DOJ (w Weissman ) before for misconduct. Judge Sullivan will do the right thing- whatever he can do as a conscientious ethical judge – he will do it. I trust Judge Sullivan and don’t believe it’s a deep state head fake. I hope Pientka ends up being forced to testify under oath.

      We do not know why Flynn agreed to the plea. People take such deals all the time and the reasons often have nothing to do with innocence or guilt. Flynn has the legal equivalent of a knife at his throat and a team of wild-eyed legal assassins ready to destroy his family when given the order. The General is now at least hoping for favorable treatment by the judge (at least no sentence) and creating the narrative frame that will help support a possible pardon.

            Summary of findings from Mr. Schuelke

            Our investigation revealed that, in addition to the failure to disclose Mr. Allen’s statements on April 15, 2008, that he did not recall speaking with Mr. Persons about Senator Stevens’s requests for bills and that the value of VECO’s work on Senator Steven’s home in Alaska was $80,000 (and not $250,000 as alleged in the indictment), other, significant Brady/Giglio information was intentionally withheld, including the following:
            • Mr. Bottini and Mr. Goeke withheld and concealed significant exculpatory information which they obtained from Robert “Rocky” Williams, a prospective government witness, during pre-trial witness preparation interviews in August and September 2008;
            • Mr. Bottini and Mr. Goeke withheld and concealed significant impeachment information regarding Mr. Allen, their key witness against Senator Stevens, which was obtained from Bambi Tyree by another federal prosecutor during an unrelated prosecution in July 2004; and
            • Mr. Bottini failed to correct materially false testimony given by Mr. Allen during his cross-examination in Stevens which Mr. Bottini knew at the time was false.
            The information withheld from the defense would have significantly corroborated the trial testimony of Senator Stevens and Catherine Stevens, his wife, on the central issue in the case, supported defense attempts to expose Mr. Allen’s CYA testimony as a recent fabrication, and provided additional grounds to impeach his credibility and to question the integrity of the prosecution itself. See United States v. Boyd, 55 F.3d 239, 241 (7th Cir. 1995)(“The gravity of the prosecutors’ misconduct . . . may support, but it can never compel, an inference that the prosecutors resorted to improper tactics because they were justifiably fearful that without such tactics the defendants might be acquitted.” (citations omitted); United States v. Remington, 191 F.2d 246, 251 (2d Cir. 1951)(“Evidence of efforts to suppress testimony of evidence in any form like the spoilation of documents is affirmative evidence of the weakness of the prosecution’s case.”)

      Judge Sullivan will do the right thing. I’m hoping there’s enough for the judge to nail Mueller and Weissman.

      I think Mueller SC thugs misjudged recommending the probation only sentence. If Flynn has been railroaded into a guilty plea with some misconduct the judge will nail them like he did in prior cases. Moreover, the prior misconduct action obviously didn’t deter Weissman and Mueller. Hope Sullivan takes that into account too.

      This could even be the little thread that unravels a lot when pulled.
