Michael Flynn Hires Attorney Sidney Powell as Legal Counsel…

This is excellent news.  Last week Michael Flynn fired Covington & Burling LLP as his legal counsel.  Today it is being reported that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn has hired former U.S. Attorney Sidney Powell.

This is an excellent development as Sidney Powell is one of the few legal advocates with a firm grasp on the surrounding dynamic.  Additionally, Mrs. Powell is smart to the tricks and corrupt tactics of Andrew Weissmann and the assembled crew of Robert Mueller.

It will likely take several weeks for Powell to review the case file (must be rather large), and given the background of corrupt FBI activity, hopefully Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and Sidney Powell can mount an offense.

Recent Background – Last week the DOJ released the FBI agent report (FD-302) written after their interview of Michael Flynn on Jan 24th, 2017. (Full pdf below) From prior testimony we know that FBI Agent Peter Strzok did the questioning and FBI Agent Joe Pientka took notes.

However, for some reason, within the report they are continuing to redact the name Joe Pientka. [Could be due to ongoing employment]

It’s worth noting according to Mark Meadows the Office of Inspector General Michael Horowitz has interviewed Joe Pientka extensively; prior attempts by congress to gain testimony from Pientka were blocked by the FBI and Rod Rosenstein.

FBI Agent Joseph Pientka was never interviewed by the joint House judiciary and oversight committees (Goodlatte and Gowdy). The reason, as explained by Meadows, was simple; Pientka was on Weissmann and Mueller’s special counsel team. Congress was not allowed to interfere in the Mueller probe. In hindsight this looks like Weissmann, Mueller & Rosenstein strategically using the investigation as a shield from sunlight.

The interview took place on January 24, 2017. The report was written Jan 24th, 2017. The wording was then deliberated by the small group, approved by FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and entered into the record on February 15th, 2017. Here’s the report:

.

Prosecutor Brandon Van Grack filed a cover letter in 2018 attempting to explain the reason for the Flynn interview on January 24th, 2017, and a delay in the official filing of the interview notes (FD-302) until February 15th, 2017, and then another edit on May 31st, 2017.

To explain the FBI delay, Van Grack claimed the FD-302 report “inadvertently” had a header saying “DRAFT DOCUMENT/DELIBERATIVE MATERIAL” (screen grab)

What the special counsel appeared to be obfuscating was a process of deliberation within the investigative unit, headed by FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, surrounding the specific wording of the 302 report on the Flynn interview. Likely how best to word the FBI notes for maximum damage.

In late 2018 Prosecutor Brandon Van Grack was attempting to hide the length of the small group deliberations within the FBI. In hindsight it seems he did not want the court to know Andrew McCabe was involved in shaping how the Flynn-302 was written.

However, we know there was at least a three week deliberative process in place, seemingly all about how to best position the narrative, because we can see the deliberations in text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok: See below (note the dates):

The text message conversation above is February 14th, 2017.

The Michael Flynn FD-302 was officially entered into the record on February 15th, 2017, per the report:

The interview took place on January 24th, 2017. The FD-302 was drafted on January 24th, and then later edited, shaped, and ultimately approved by McCabe on February 14th, then entered into the official record on February 15th.

It was a deliberative document from the outset. Thanks to the Strzok/Page text messages we know the 2018 cover letter from the Special Counsel is misleading. The Feb 15th, 2017, date was the day after McCabe approved it (three weeks after the FBI interview).

May 17th, 2017, Robert Mueller was assigned as special Counsel. Then, the FD-302 report was re-entered on May 31st, 2017, removing the header; paving the way for Mueller’s team to use the content therein.

    Sydney Powell is one of the sharpest lawyers I have come across. I saw her interview on Mark Levin show and thought she was outstanding as an insider on the corruptions of her department and those interacting with it. She will be the lightning rod we all need and pray that God protect and keep her and exonerate Gen. Flynn, and rightly so. He was used as a bargaining chip in the ever searching of the demented Mueller cabal, to indict duly elected President Donald J. TRump, without cause and without evidence of any crime or infringement of the Law. Because Gen. Flynn is an upstanding Patriot and citizen of the U.S.A., he was not affected by their coercion and witness tampering attempts against our President Trump. God bless and keep Gen. Flynn. I believe with the rest of the declassification of all records pertaining to this witch hunt, all the rats in Washington, D.C. will be exposed for what they are, vermin hunting for garbage because that is their nature. They are sewer dwellers and hate the light of day.

      I believe it’s important to cause weissmann/mueller as much pain as possible. For decades the Left has made it costly and difficult for decent people like LTG Flynn to be part of our politics.

      We need more good people like him and less, far less, like the perps at the center of this scam. They must feel the pain. They must be punished otherwise the Left, not normal good Americans, will continue to burrow into the bureaucracy like good Gramsci drones and hollow out what’s good in our system.

      This is more than a court case, it’s another battle for good against the craven fanatics on the Left ISO the DS.

      Full disclosure, I would like to see the perps punished for the personal satisfaction of seeing evil punished, but more importantly, we need to affirm the same system of justice applies to all citizens.

    Not being a lawyer I have wonder what kind of legal predictament Mueller succeeded in putting Flynn in. I am suspicious that much depends upon judge Sullivan. I don’t trust Sullivan and consider him 100% swamp.

    Maybe Ristvan might be able to explain to us the legal difficulties Flynn faces in trying to walk back his guilty plea.

      It goes back to what Mueller did to Arthur Anderson. Once you are ACCUSED of something bad, the world reacts and you are out of business, whether it is true or not. This is the tactic of the left, to intimidate and coerce those they have chosen to be their pawns in the game of chess against our President Trump. They threaten them with all kinds of things, and they, not being attorneys, fear the worst. They don’t capitulate with the enemy but resist until their last hope is gone. As in the case of Gen. Flynn, his son was threatened and that is when he drew the line. I don’t blame him, though he is not guilty, but if he keeps his guilty plea, he must know about something we aren’t aware of that will sink the accuser in the end. So trust the process and the new attorney that will straighten out all the kinks they have tried to put into this false arrest and condemnation of innocent people! Remember, they use the shadow boxing technique to intimidate these innocent people into saying and doing things out of fear of what might be, instead of dealing on an honest basis, which is totally antithetical to these vermin. What we don’t realize is what we don’t see, in that these vermin use things out of context, twist and bend the rules, make up their own rules, withhold exculpatory evidence and all kinds of dirty tricks to build an image of a legal monster that is threatening to devour these victims. What they don’t want you to see is the one that will dispel the false image of a monster and bring it down to the fact that THEY, the vermin, are the REAL MONSTERS and take them out! Keep praying and keep the faith!

        Oh, and BTW? Arthur Anderson was judged not guilty of the accusations that Mueller brought against them, but it had already destroyed their company, putting 85,000 employees out of a job, affecting their entire families and the credibility of this great company that had been a standard in the accounting and insurance business! The SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA THREW OUT THIS CASE! JUDGED THEM NOT GUILTY! But by then, the damage was done and Arthur Anderson was gone. They had accomplished their goal of destroying a great American company with their ungodly underhanded tactics! This is what this vermin do to anyone they target. They spin their tales and woe to anyone that gets in their way. They all need to be taken into custody for their false accusations, destruction of the American economy through subversive and illegal false accusations, unsubstantiated, obviously. All the while they defend the guilty like Whitey Bulger, putting innocent people in their place to take the fall instead! These vermin will rue the day they chose to be evil when they meet God face to face and melt in His presence before they are cast into Hell for eternity to burn forever for their unrepentant crimes!

            These vermin are psychopaths, they have no feelings, no empathy, no consideration of anyone else, no conscience. They do what they do because they love evil and they love destroying others, regardless of what it takes. The end of the spectrum is Ted Bundy and the like. Though these people don’t physically kill someone, they kill their lifestyle, they kill their desire to live and kill any motivation for going forward and if they can, they destroy (kill) their family, with the fallout of false accusations and mistreatment mentally of those they target to destroy. This is a mental disorder, a spiritual condition brought on by opening ones self to evil and being raised to do so either by abuse or by strong teaching, reinforced by physical abuse…mental abuse, emotional abuse, etc…Hitler was abused by his father, told negative things. His response when he got older was to retaliate against ‘the world’ for persecuting him through his mentally deranged, drunken father. I understand R. Mueller’s father was a Nazi, as well. From that, you can tell what the outcome of his future would be, with a tainted view of the world in front of his eyes at all times…his desire to conquer the world, the known laws and restraints, by twisting the rules and disregarding them, making up his own parameters and leaving out pertinent and exculpatory evidence that would exonerate his victim. It’s a murderous heart that we see a clear picture of in R.M. and his cabal of cohorts that are of like mind and spirit. The DOJ needs to be purged of such individuals before we can return to a system of true justice in this land.
