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.

    Ms. Powell, please obtain the Flynn phone call recording, and transcript! How can he plead guilty without seeing those items?

    Sundance / others: I am still unclear why the focus on a 3-month lag in altering the 302.

    Are you implying a further, sinister edit of the Flynn 302 on the body of the document? If so, isn’t there a History / Change Log at the FBI / DOJ?

      The lag was a “deliberative process” to create a document that could be used, as McCabe declared, to “F**k Flynn.” Normally the 302’s, interview notes, are completed almost immediately, and they were, but it took three weeks of massaging them to satisfy the Conspirators that they could successfully use the resultant fabrication to persecute Flynn via prosecution.

      It is supposed to be from the contemporaneous notes taken during the interview in question. It is TESTIMONIAL EVIDENCE. If there is something you don’t think is quite right, you have the option to interview again and make a second FD-302 to reflect that, and, perhaps, in between an INVESTIGATIVE INSERT (another type of file serial like a Memorandum or Letter) documenting why the second interview. When you take 3 months and re-edit what you filed earlier as a true and complete record of an interview, after the fact of its acceptance as true and complete, it degrades as evidence. The three weeks they took before are unusual and would have attracted the attention of an AUSA, in Inspector, or some other curious denizen like a DEFENSE ATTORNEY.

      Now, their bigger problem with this one is it is a SUBJECT INTERVIEW. Let’s fact it–Flynn was the subject of the “investigation.” This means they needed to inform him of his rights. They didn’t do that.

      The more you look at this thing, the systemic and serial screw-ups, you have to start wondering just what IS going on here. Five-will-get-you-ten it is not what they keep telling us it is.

    In 2014 Chief Judge of U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit wrote the Foreword in Sidney’s book, Licensed To Lie. Excerpt below will add to one’s confidence and understanding of Sidney Powell’s lawyering.

    “[Sidney Powell]…is a former prosecutor who represented a defendant in one of the high-profile cases…She was called in by the defense team after the client had been convicted. As she describes her first meeting with the client and his lawyers, they were “[t]raumatized…I seemed to have more testosterone than all of them put together,” she quips. In truth, Sidney Powell has more testosterone than pretty much any roomful of lawyers, be they men or women. Writing a book like this proves it. Not only does she take on, by name, prosecutors and former prosecutors who continue to serve in powerful and responsible p;ositions, she is also relentless in criticizing judges before whom she has practices for years. Few lawyers have the stones to do this.”

    Sidney Powell is more than ready to take on anything and anyone they can/will throw at her — even if she has to go to the Supreme Court to do it — again.

    Very odd to change attorneys just before sentencing. Mystery to me.

    However, if he is still a cooperating witness for the government wouldn’t that mean he is still honoring his plea deal?

    So, any “offense” would have to be in connection with getting as light a sentence as possible, or perhaps sueing the government later for prosecutorual abuse? Where does this go during or after sentencing?

    Sydney will now be confined by attorney/client privilege. So don’t expect her to spill any beans on this site any time soon.

    I do expect Flynn to make an effort to clear his name after sentencing. So, she may be granted more freedom to discuss things after sentencing.

        To “withholding exculpatory evidence” can we add withdrawal because 1) the “evidence” of lying to the FBI is a “deliberative product”, tainted by one Andrew McCabe, who should have been recused from any involvement due to his manifest bias against the Trump administration in general, and Flynn in particular; Pientka’s FD-302 is inadmissible, therefore there is no case; and, 2) Flynn was coerced into a plea deal by the US government through threats to his family, etc. I don’t trust Sullivan to do the right thing, but it would be great if he holds hearings wherein Sydney Powell can in effect put McCabe, Weissman, and the FBI plotters on trial for misconduct.

There was evidence of misconduct by the FBI and prosecutors that Sullivan overlooked time after time. Remember, seeing multiple instances where a police officer or federal agent was caught by the defense making a racist joke or remark on Twitter or Facebook and the case was immediately thrown out! The defendant awarded millions of dollars in damages. You didn’t see that here with Judge Sullivan even with the Strzok and Pages emails, with the illegal wiretapping, with McCabe’s “F*CK FLYNN” comments. No folks, Flynn is about to be slammed and he knows it.

    Many taxpayers and people under investigation learn the hard way by making a major mistake; i.e. they hand over far more information than is requested.
    e.g.; Technically, only seven years of tax records need to be maintained. However, IRS will use every bit of information the people hand over.
    e.g. 2; Inviting police officers into your home minimizes or eliminates an officers need to obtain search warrants, if the officers can spot any evidence of wrong doing.

    The same principle applies in reverse to persons facing prosecution.
    Reams and reams of sloppy documentation, sloppy interviews, sloppy analysis, sloppy lines of evidence, or conclusions the prosecution team leaps to without verifying; allow defenders to attack the prosecution’s case, methods, procedures, neutrality, honesty and use of fruit from a poisoned investigation vine.

    I expect Ms. Powell, Esquire to quickly organize, reorder and straighten out the evidence, depositions, and witnesses in this case; especially where the prosecution made major errors.
    Plus her expert review of the prosecution’s case should identify many holes where the previous defense counsels failed to take advantage. Ideally, their malfeasance can be proven.

    It would be a great treat if Flynn-Powell team can turn the tables and aggressively go after Mueller, Weissmann, Strzok and other involved FBI agents and lawyers.

    Month after month we have heard of one special counsel malfeasance, misconduct, poor prosecution handling, failure to conduct a fair neutral prosecution, fair treatment from arrest through prosecution for those charged, complete sharing of all relevant evidence and witnesses, after another.

    I would be very surprised if Ms. Powell, Esquire is unable to turn General Flynn’s case completely about.
    If not at this level, then on appeal. Prosecution malfeasance, incompetence, bias, improper evidence sharing, lies, etc. are all solid basis for appeal.

    As prior cases have proved, Weissmann’s and Mueller’s cases regularly fail higher level court reviews.
    With the levels of outright prosecution errors incurred with General Flynn’s case, Ms. Powell should be able to keep Flynn out of jail waiting for the appeal process.

      Remember, General Flynn admitted guilt, so where is the appeal process?
      Perhaps Flynn-Powell are waiting for the IG Horowitz report, potentially evidencing malfeasance by the mewler coup group, the contreras involvement, or other improper activities?
      To the extent he cares about the integrity of the justice system, Judge Sullivan would also probably like to see the results of the IG report, and the Durham investigation before sentencing or other proceedings.
      Sidney Powell says General Flynn is continuing to cooperate:
      “He is and will continue to cooperate with the government in all aspects,” Powell told SaraACarter.com.
      But the mewler coup group is gone – so this current, continued cooperation could be with Durham, evidencing mewler pressure or threats against Flynn’s family to get Flynn to plead guilty (and provide anti-trump testimony, true or shaded?).

        “Remember, General Flynn admitted guilt, so where is the appeal process?”

        Rule 32 hearing is the request to withdraw a plea.
        If the judge refuses to allow a defendant to withdraw, it can be reviewable on appeal if they can show the judge abused his discretion.

        General Flynn, and others prosecuted by special counsel were heavily pressured to plead guilty.

        When a prosecutor is threatening to ruin a wife or child, that is a form of blackmail.

        Are you telling us that pleading guilty under such pressure is not appealable?
        Especially if the new defense counsel identifies criminal actions of the prosecuting team in their prosecuting the defendant?

    “In hindsight this looks like Weissmann, Mueller & Rosenstein strategically using the investigation as a shield from sunlight.”

    If you’re listening to Dan Bongino, it wouldn’t be “in hindsight.” Bongino called this tactic out from the get-go. The reason they were going after certain individuals is to keep them from being able to speak out. This isn’t much of a leap that the Mueller team (the team that chose Mueller, not the team Mueller chose) would have drafted FBI personnel who would otherwise be compelled to speak… and that’s assuming he wasn’t already a part of the team that selected Mueller in the first place — like Strzok was.

      Judge Sullivan may need to be recused. His remarks against Flynn in December were intemperate.

      He is remembered for overturning Sen. Ted Stevens’ conviction for receiving illicit gifts, basically home remodeling discounts that turned out to be fully-pid-for jobs, with a contractor being squeezed by DOJ on unrelated matters, being let off the hook for these, in return for committing perjury against Stevens.

      But here’s the thing: Sullivan initially convicted Stevens, causing him to narrowly lose reelection in 2008, giving the Senate a 60-seat filibuster-proof supermajority in 2009. Sullivan lambasted the DOJ attorneys for suborning perjury and hiding exculpatory evidence, but failed to jail them for contempt of court, which he had the power to do.

      That’s entirely up to Powell and Flynn.

The eventual result might be not just a light sentence, but a joint motion to withdraw the guilty plea and drop the case.
