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:

    Who da thunk it, a federal judge might be the one to pop the lid on the anti-Trump cesspool. Sidney Powell, care to share your opinion on where Judge Sullivan might take this?

      Sydney weighed in on Sullivan quite a while ago. Will be interesting to hear what she thinks now.

      Recall Judge Sullivan was selected as the judge when Contreras was recuse. The Mueller SC were ready for their conflicted Contreras to sentence Flynn.

        So entrapment is a defense for Flynn but proof of entrapment doesn’t really have legal consequences for Mueller, other than losing the case and the obvious political fallout.

    I dont understand why McCabe said the agents that interviewed Flynn didnt think he was lieing and it wasnt a very good way to start. This is used to undermine the trap on Flynn he set??? Was he avoiding something by showing he wasnt nefarious? Why state on the record exactly what would work against him? Say anything but not that, so why say it on the record, can anyone help please?

          LOL yeah, a new 302 dated more than 6 months after the interview, with their boss (Comey) admitting before Congress that directly after the interview they reported to him that they had not gotten even the impression that he lied to them…
          That does not look good.

          Why (re)write the 302 in August.

          And if this was the first time the document was written: how can that be when the interview was in January, human recollection is not that good? Perhaps based upon written notes.

          There is another issue with that: around that time (Jan/Feb/Mar) they reported to their boss that Flynn had not lied to them. Yet when mr. S. writes his August version all of a sudden S. claims that Flynn lied.
          And was this the first version? McCabe was ‘good on’ the F302 in Feb, so there must have already been a Feb. version. If so why an August version????

      Comey said that I think.

      Or did McCabe confirmed this as well? And if so: how & when. AFAIK Comey said this first, so then it’s easy for a Congressman or Senator to later confront McCabe with that, and what is he supposed to say then? Deny it?
      The asking Congressman or Senator no doubt already has a sworn statement from the other FBI agent, so that plus the earlier statement by Comey would be hard to ignore, and McCabe should realize this. At best he can soften it by twisting words.

          Lanahi,
          I strongly agree regarding this individual Flynn criminal proceeding.

          If Judge Sullivan gets to the bottom of this 302 business and finds the August replacement not contemporaneous and suspect, he can tell the State the exculpatory requirements of Brady have not been met. He could permit the plea to be withdrawn.

          That event would put Mulehead in a bad spot as his witnesses to the events at the White House would be
          subject to all sorts of probing questions re the original 302, and their veracity in its production. It makes impeachment much easier for defense counsel. In front of either a jury, or Judge Sullivan, credibility becomes a fatal problem that could then infect other criminal matters, past and future.

          The perfect torpedo to send Muleheads stinking barge to Davey Jones locker.

                Judge Sullivan had a chance to shut all of this down before it began, but instead he folded and allowed the redacted super duper expanded SC order to go unchallenged and now this is the result. He isn’t going to stop this crapshow now as it is entering the final stages.

          Yes the judges order is quite clear. It means both any work notes prior to any 302 and any previous version of that 302, as there must have been because we know that the first 302 was created in Feb and not as late as August.
          Either way there must also have been notes, including those from the other FBI Agent (i.e. made by the good cop.

          We have more written material than only that which has been written by known bad cop mr. S., who himself is currently under investigation and has been referred to DOJ for further investigations (suspicions include lying to the FBI internal auditors as well as to Congress in both verbal as well as in written statements).

            Dr.,
            It appears Sullivan might know a great deal more than he is stating.

            I fully understand the likely reasoning behind the general’s agreement to plead.

            Meeting the Brady requirements is meant as a safeguard. Judge Sullivan smells a rat and has seen this rat before. The rats existence previously is why he has template exculpatory evidence orders he routinely issues.

            The best way to damage Mulehead is not via Congress investigating, or an order firing the SOB issued by PDJT, it’s by getting federal judges to see that the rules of Federal Criminal Procedure have not been complied with and that the state’s credibility is compromised.

            We here all suspect this; if Judge Sullivan knows it, his orders can ruin future prosecutions associated with the execution of the “Insurance policy”.

        Luckily nowadays they have an electronic filing system and that logs the identity of the person performing any action and date/time of that action.
        Even when you delete a document you can’t delete the audit trail (nor previous versions, unless they use a system where only ‘official’ versions are retained, but that is unlikely, and assumes that the first & only ‘official’ version was made in August).

        And deleting the filing history (the previous versions), or the audit trail is not possible fro normal users. Only when you enter ‘ god mode’ (i.e. as admin) can you remove older stored version and can you doctor the audit trail.

        By they way, when you do, any competent forensic researcher can tell that someone has done that, because we can detect the missing audit trail records.
        And we know who has admin rights…

    The judge may suspect IMO the whole premise of the investigation was messed up…remember the August 2017 scope document where we got to see the allegations about Paul Manafort. Each of the four individuals originally investigated probably had the first generic allegation that Manafort has (allegation of colluding with Russians). So I suspect the 302 was redone later in August to fit the August Scope document…and in Flynn’s case to perhaps adjust for Strzok/Page text messages that Horowitz has found related to 302’s.

    This could be big news! Judge Emmet Sullivan was the same judge that had prosecutors investigated for criminal actions they took in the Sen. Ted Stevens FALSE prosecution. Some on Mueller’s team, including Weinstein, were held in contempt. One prosecutor committed suicide. Others threatened with disbarment and some were suspended. “A federal judge dismissed the ethics conviction of former Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska on Tuesday after taking the extraordinary step of naming a special prosecutor to investigate whether the government lawyers who ran the Stevens case (2008) should themselves be prosecuted for criminal wrongdoing. Mueller was also involved in that horrible attempt by prosecutors to frame Sen. Ted Stevens. Judge Sullivan has absolutely no use for this group of prosecutors. He smells a rat here and is asking for all investigative materials, including 302s. This judge will not hesitate to take action against these crooked prosecutors if he finds evidence of ANY wrong doing.

    A great book by Sidney Powers titled “Licensed to Lie” is a startling and in depth look at the criminal actions of the Mueller criminal prosecutors in the Stevens case and also the Enron case.

The DOJ can’t ignore him, like they do Congress. And, they can’t say “classified”, cause he has the security clearance, can’t say “ongoing investigation”, either.

      Could Judge Sullivan be the Serrica of this big ugly? Its certainly possible.

      We now may be seeing WHY Mueller put off the sentencing for so long.

      And if Sullivan goes nuclear on Mueller team, Flynn has very good chance to be made whole. The damages are self evident, and should be easily quantifiable.

              Two different issues. Whether the officer correctly reports/writes down what was actually said is an issue of proof. He said/he said. Who does the jury believe?

              On the second issue, as I said above, no one is entitled to Miranda warnings if you voluntarily consent to talk to the police. And the police are allowed to offer you an opportunity to break the law. That is not entrapment unless there is some sort of coercion or duress. It is difficult to prove entrapment and I don’t see Flynn proving it here based on what I have read so far. Give me more facts, and I might reconsider.

              The technical issues are “tricky”; at the moment the investigating officers view the interviewee as a “suspect” in a crime, they are supposed to miranda.

              As long as they are only investigating to detirmine IF a crime was committed, or to get ‘backgroung information’, they do NOT need to mirandise.

              Since they already HAD the tapes, and knew what was said, the minute Flynn answered the question “falsely”, technically they probably should have mirandised him, as that point they could be said to know he had answered incorrectly, and to SUSPECT he may have lied, i.e. a crime committed (if he did).

                I concur that the Miranda issue might be “tricky.” One reason I am posting today is to make sure folks here understand it is “tricky.” This is NOT “clear as day” as others have said.

                On your main point, I disagree. I distinguish police procedures from constitutional requirements. Maybe police procedure is to give the Miranda warnings once a person becomes a suspect; but that is not the constitutional test. The legal test is whether the target was under arrest or had a reasonable belief that he/she was under arrest. Miranda warnings are required at that point.

                Even if you are right and Miranda is necessary for “suspects,” I think Strzok and McCabe wiggle away by saying that Flynn was not a suspect of a crime before the interview. There is merit to the argument because the crime allegedly committed was lying which did not occur until he actually lied. Saying that “we suspect that he will lie” is very different from saying he is a “suspect.”

                Um.. I am re-reading what you wrote — I see that your argument is that Strzok and the other agent should have given the Miranda warning at some point during the interview, after the first alleged lie. I don’t think so, but maybe. In my view, most judges will give law enforcement some leeway.The idea is to make sure the fish is *really* on the hook and that there was no mistake. It is fact dependent. Two hours after the first lie, okay — maybe some exclusions of statements made in the later half of the interview. A few more minutes after the first lie? Probably everything is admissible.

              I should add that Flynn’s lawyers have some arguments here if they want to try and make them. There is a fundamental difference between the vice squad officer posing as a hooker and what Strzok did because the alleged crime is buried IN the speaking to the officers. One could argue that a heightened level of warning is needed where a crime can be committed merely by speaking. This need is enhanced by your point about what is “alleged” to have been said. Given that juries tend to believe police officers, the judges might decide that an extra level of warning is needed.

    The reason McCabe, Strozk, and Lisa Page engaged so openly in email and text communications was because they believed that those communications could be expunged if need be and therefore never revealed. This attitude was part of a culture that arose during the Obama Administration in which the ends justify the means and it later manifest itself in the deception and entrapment of Mike Flynn. The reason the IG investigation has been going on so long is because the Spygate conspirators wouldn’t stop breaking the law, up to and including Comey’s testimony last week. Lynch will get her chance to come clean now.

    I think folks here are focused on the wrong issues. As discussed in my posts above, law enforcement can do what McCabe and Strzok did. Arguably, Flynn was not constitutionally entitled to any warnings and his statements were/would be fully admissible as voluntary statements.

    IMO, the key issue is how did the FBI know what Flynn had said in advance. I think this statement is the one that caught the Judge’s eye: “Before the interview, FBI officials had also decided that, if ‘Flynn said he did not remember something they knew he said, they would use the exact words Flynn used, …'” The question is: how did the FBI know Flynn’s “exact words” in advance?

    Typically, the order of events is reversed. An interview is taken, then later, evidence is uncovered that contradicts what was said during the interview. Generally speaking, law enforcement does not know the “exact words” used by someone in advance. IMO, to an experienced federal judge, knowing the “exact words” in advance indicates that a wiretap was in use.

    So, I predict this:

    Judge question: “How did the FBI know his “exact words?”
    A: Wiretap
    Q. How did the FBI get a wiretap?
    A. Warrant.”
    From there, if the warrant was valid, everything else was “ok.” If the warrant was NOT valid, then the case falls apart. This is *HUGE* because the black hats do not want anyone to inquire too deeply into the validity of the warrant.

      So, if John Doe is approved by an FBI and casually asked, “What time is it?” And John says “Half past noon” when it is clearly after sunset… yeah, John is a felon.

      If anything, White House staff approached by FBI staff with misleading intent would have greater grounds to charge the FBI staffers with violating 18 USC 1001 as the FBI are several echelons below the WH in executive authority.

      Does anybody really believe that if an FBI agent bebopped over to AG Lynch’s corner office (or Comey for that matter) and wanted to chat about yesterday’s conference with Lynch’s staff Assistant Adminstration Secretary of Office Administration (AASOA), and AASOA didn’t see a reason to entertain a subordinate office flunkey question and told them to hit the bricks before it rains (knowing rain wasn’t in the forecast) could be charged with violating 18 USC 1001?

      Totes Legit?

      Aside from from ludicrously trivial, ludicrously asinine.

      Subordinate echelons do not police nor dictate their upper echelons.

      Inexperience and political optics aside, WH should have culled the DoJ and FBI herd the moment this reared its head. There is a chain of command.

      That said, pleading guilty to that which is not illegal (for reasons other than I elaborated above) and having it accepted by a zealous prosecutor should be prima facie evidence of duress and deprivation of civil rights under color of law…. conspiracy too.

    Transcript of Yates & Clappers testimony. I have only copied parts of it. The …. between paragraphs mean I left parts out. Sen Whitehouse is doing the questioning on this.

    **Notice at the end,Yates told the WH she would have to make arrangements for WH counsel to see the underlying documents & then she was fired so she doesn’t know if WH ever reviewed the documents.

    WHITEHOUSE: Did you have the 302 with you when you were in the White House? Did you show it to White House counsel? And had you seen it at the time you went up to the White House?

    YATES: No. The FBI had conducted the interview on the 24th. We got a readout from the FBI on the 25th, a detailed readout specifically from the agents that had conducted the interview.

    But we didn’t want to wait for the 302, because we felt that it was important to get this information to the White House as quickly as possible, so we had folks from the national security division who spent a lot of time with the agents, not only finding out exactly how the interview went but how this impacted their investigation.

    WHITEHOUSE: So did you take that summary with you? Do you have any document with you that described the FBI interview of General Flynn?

    YATES: At the time that I was there, I had notes that described that interview, as well as the individual that was with me — the senior career official from the national security division — had been part of all of those discussions with the FBI.
    ….
    WHITEHOUSE: You could perhaps have waited until you actually had seen the agents 302 from the interview of General Flynn. Why go ahead of that? Why not wait?

    YATES: Well, because this was a matter of some urgency, we…

    WHITEHOUSE: OK. Do you know if Flynn was represented by council at the time?

    YATES: I don’t believe he was.

    WHITEHOUSE: OK. And the scenario that you were concerned about was that you were seeing all these statements coming from the White House that were inconsistent with what you knew, you presumed that the White House was being truthful which meant that Flynn was misleading them.

    YATES: Right.
    ….
    WHITEHOUSE: Was the interview of General Flynn accelerated once you became aware of this information and felt you needed to get his statement quickly?

    YATES: Well, we had wanted to tell the White House as quickly as possible and we’re working with the FBI and in the course of the investigation but certainly, we did…

    (CROSSTALK)

    WHITEHOUSE: And the first thing you know is that you have information that one thing was said and the White House is saying something different. And you know that that information irrespective of who is involved needs to get up to the White House quickly. And so at that point, the decision was made to do the interview so that that was locked down before you went up to White House counsel?

    YATES: Right, so that that would not have a negative impact on the FBI investigation at that point.

    And there was a request made by Mr. McGahn, in the second meeting as to whether or not they would be able to look at the underlying evidence that we had that we had described for him of General Flynn’s conduct. And we told him that we were inclined to allow them to look at that underlying evidence, that we wanted to go back to DOJ and be able to make the logistical arrangements for that. This second meeting on the 27th occurred late in the afternoon, this is Friday the 27th. So we told him that we would work with the FBI over the weekend on this issue and get back with him on Monday morning. And I called him first thing Monday morning to let him know that we would allow them to come over and to review the underlying evidence.

    WHITEHOUSE: And was that the phone call or is there a separate phone call?

    YATES: There was the phone call initially to let him know I needed to come see him.

    WHITEHOUSE: Yeah?

    YATES: Two meetings and then a phone call at the end to let him know…

    WHITEHOUSE: That the material was available if he wanted to see it.

    YATES: … that the material was available. He had to call me back. He was not available then and I did not hear back from him until that afternoon of Monday the 30th.

    WHITEHOUSE: And that was the end of this episode, nobody came over to look at the material?

    YATES: I don’t know what happened after that because that was my last day with DOJ.

    WHITEHOUSE: Got it. OK.

      Flynn did the right thing by taking responsibility for his own action no matter the intents and actions of the government. That had left open the possibility for a judge to see the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help him God. I wish him well.

Little did he or anybody else suspect that the outgoing obama admin would actually be trying to frame the new incoming administration based on wiretapped conversations.

    Simple question – if 302s are dirty, why Muller even try to get Flynn and risc in court, why not just leave him alone?

      It appears to me that 302s and the way they are handled are vestiges of a bygone era. However…Robert Mueller was the head of the FBI for 12 years during the period when we would have expected technology to have become part of the 302 process or whatever replaced it. Robert Mueller is a dirty cop. The current 302 system works well for him.

    Flynn was railroaded. But, they knew about his $ from Turkey before they ever started, thus giving them significant leverage to force a plea.

    Seems that was Mueller MO. Whether Manafort, Flynn, the Russian groups, or Cohen, law enforcement had evidence of their possible crimes before Mueller was ever named SC. Then magically, the SC brings all these indictments giving the media fodder to say what a great job they’re doing and Trump must be guilty by Association.

    Has the SC actually found something that wasn’t previously known that was used to facilitate the Trump set up?

    The FBI have done themselves irreparable damage. How many people when approached by the FBI are going to say:

    “Are you trying to Flynn me?”
    Or:
    “Sorry, I’m not getting Flynned by you guys.”

    >> But, they knew about his $ from Turkey before they ever started, thus giving them significant leverage to force a plea.

    Another issue. They indicated in the press that he had not filed FARA for his work for (the government of) Turkey at all, but that is wrong.
    The allegation now is actually that he was ‘unclear’ (subjective judgment call) in ‘some parts’ (vague) of his FARA filings related to Turkey, misrepresenting the role/influence some Turkish actors would have had on his work (…),
    Ergo they lied/misrepresented to the press what their FARA related objections really were.

    And the point they are making can’t be really proven as it depends on subjective judgement.
    How you can misrepresent the fact that you work for client A when you file that you work for client A is beyond me.
    He did not file that he worked for some Turkish private person, instead the filing says that he worked on behalf of the government of Turkey (hence the need to file the FARA in the first place). No if, buts or maybe. So even that allegation is a lie, a twisting of words.

    Burn baby burrrrrnnnnn!

    • Turkey is the hidden genesis……………IMO, it is why Flynn accepted a plea deal to stop the financial bleeding and legal threats involving him and son’s lobbing activities…..Flynn knew the DOJ had the goods on his activities for the Erdogen factions……

        Apparently not. He filed late (early 2017, he worked for Turkey in 2016), but he did file. Apart from a lot of smoke an mirrors, he did fulfill his legal obligation in that respect.

        Some other related accusations are made in the press about this, but none of those are in any way illegal. FARA simply means that you have to register (even when you think you don’t, it’s rather broad), but there are no other rules.

        Some of that is used by SC team, but none of it is illegal, it’s just used to paint the picture.
        For example:

        >> https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/national-security/mueller-gives-new-details-flynn-s-secretive-work-turkey-n943926

        “…and the defendant’s op-ed about the cleric’s role was valuable to the Republic of Turkey’s efforts to shape public opinion,” prosecutors wrote. Flynn’s decision not to disclose Turkey’s role in the op-ed “again deprived the public of the very transparency FARA was designed to ensure.””

        And is perfectly legal.

        All they really had is that he allegedly filed for FARA past the arguable deadline. As does every Tom, Dick and Harry (most never file, even professional lobbyists), or should I say Tony, John and Hill….

          Good information, thanks! Although the Turkey charges may have been weak, it is information that was known prior to Mueller’s appointment that was handed to Mueller to add legitimacy to his appointment via the ability to make indictments. Same with Manafort, the Russian groups, and Cohen. All the facts were known about possible crimes, but no charges had been filed. Then, that info is handed to Mueller to give cover for their set up.

            IMO, the Mueller team needed to claim foreign connections for their targets so that they could work with the National Security Division at DOJ and the associated Counterintelligence Division in the National Security Branch at the FBI. Those two places seem to be the locations of the primary tumors for this cancer.

            BTW, the FBI website still shows Bill Preistap as the assistant director over counterintelligence. Does not show a new acting.

              Michael Cohen’s foreign link is bogus and shows there was a conspiracy to remove Trump. Lanny Brewer is his attorney. The Trump-Russia hoax depends heavily on the story that Michael Cohen had nefarious in-person dealings in Prague. However, another Michael Cohen traveled to Prague, not this one. The story about this Michael Cohen representing Trump on that trip is fabricated because this Michael Cohen was not ever in Prague.

              Find that dossier and blow this thing up. It is beyond doubt that the FBI found a Michael Cohen’s travel record, made up the story, and leaked it to the press. That’s how they roll.

              Clinton swamp lawyer Lanny Brewer is Michael Cohen’s lawyer.

    The Judge has a purpose for ordering 302’s. This is not about ordinary curiosity.

    Muller has 2 bad options.. He can refuse to furnish 302’s or he can furnish all and let the court see the manipulation.

    This court also has the authority to toss case and even force the Prosecution to pay Flynn’s legal fees.

    I like the bunny trail distraction claiming “Flynn is cooperating”
