DOJ Reverses Course in FARA Case – Calls Flynn “co-conspirator”, Doesn’t Want Flynn Testimony – Judge Sullivan Intervenes…

Breakthrough – Things Making Sense Now…

Lots of things going on in/around the two legal cases involving Michael Flynn today.  The origination of the DOJ shift in position involves the indirect case (EDVA) where Flynn is/was a witness in the FARA (Foreign Agent Registration Act) case against Bijan Rafiekian and the Flynn Intel Group.

Hat Tip to Techno-Fog for a litany of legal filings assembled today [132 pages here].  This is somewhat complex to explain.

The direct case against Flynn (Judge Sullivan court – Washington DC), where Flynn copped a guilty plea for lying to FBI investigators, has a sentencing predicated on Flynn’s ongoing cooperation in the Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA) case against Bijan Rafiekian and FIG (Flynn Intel Group).  However, in a stunning move today the DOJ prosecuting Rafiekian now says it will not call Flynn as a witness; and further the DOJ state they now consider Flynn an “unindicted co-conspirator”.

From court filings (on behalf of Flynn) we find the reason.  Michael Flynn refused a demand by the DOJ to testify that the Flynn Group FARA filing was completed with knowingly false information and contained “false statements”.

Michael Flynn refused to testify to this DOJ construct because the claim was not true.

Michael Flynn and his lawyers say there was no intentional filing of false information in the Flynn Group FARA submissions; and the FARA forms were submitted based on legal advice provided for their completion.  If there were mistakes in the FARA filing, they were not falsehoods and/or mistakes made purposefully or with purposeful intent.

When Flynn agreed to the plea for lying, he was agreeing with hindsight and accepting the government position that some of the material in the FARA submission was false.  However, Flynn did not admit that anything was intentionally false, but rather an outcome of mistakes made within a process that relied on legal advice.

(Source – pg 6)

It is worth noting here that Flynn lawyers call out former DOJ-NSD Official David Laufman for pressuring Flynn to sign the FARA submission; a FARA submission the DOJ would later claim contained false information.

The DOJ prosecutors wanted Flynn to say that he, the group and Bijan Rafiekian, knew the information on the FARA submissions was false.  Flynn refused; and would not testify to that falsehood in the case.  As a result the DOJ retaliated against Flynn by changing his position to a “co-conspirator” and cancelling his testimony.

The DOJ prosecutors don’t want Flynn to testify (no longer want his cooperation) because his testimony would undercut the foundation of their case against Bijan Rafiekian.

Here’s Flynn’s Filing:

.

So with Flynn’s cooperation now at issue in the secondary EDVA case, in the primary case against Flynn himself, Judge Sullivan (Washington, DC) wants some answers:

BACK TO EDVA – The lawyers for Bijan Rafiekian, also filed motions to dismiss the DOJ indictment based on the prosecutors inability to prove the Flynn Intel Group knowingly acted on behalf of the Turkish government.

Essentially Rafiekian is arguing the Flynn group were hired and advocating for private interests and they had no reason to belief the Turkish government was behind the contract.  This is the essential underpin for the FARA registration.  If the Flynn Group didn’t know they were contracted by a foreign government, they wouldn’t know how to fill out the FARA forms.

Here’s where it gets interesting and a picture starts to emerge.  It is possible, very possible, the DOJ-NSD using their legally authorized database and surveillance access, knew the background principals behind the Flynn Group contract were members of the Turkish Government. [DOJ-NSD head David Laufman knew]  However, Flynn, Rafiekian and their lawyers did not know; and therefore signed a FARA submission that was later shown to be false.

Yes, Laufman -representing the DOJ- knowingly pressured Flynn to sign a FARA submission while withholding evidence the DOJ would later use to prove the FARA submission contained materially false information.  That’s how it looks.

The same David Laufman who sat in on the Clinton email interview.  The same David Laufman who was FBI official Monica McLean’s lawyer when things got sketchy about her work with “beach friend” Christine Blasey-Ford…

… Yes, THAT David Laufman.

In a late breaking development, Judge Anthony Trenga (EDVA) ruled the DOJ has not presented evidence sufficient to establish “evidence of a conspiracy” for the purposes of admitting the hearsay statements of alleged co-conspirator (Flynn).

TECHNO: “Notably absent” from the DOJ’s proffer is “any evidence… that Flynn… has admitted that he made certain false statements in the FARA filing” that was part of the alleged conspiracy.

(Source)

TECHNO: “the FARA statement and related filings do not reflect the existence of the alleged conspiracy to act as undisclosed Turkish agents”

TECHNO: Turkey funding – the US didn’t have the evidence. “the US may not argue or state to the jury that Turkey … funded the work by Flynn Intel Group under the contractual agreement”

Here’s the EDVA Ruling:

.

Bear with me…

Here’s what I THINK is going on…. Keep in mind we saw this in 2016, and we warned about something weird going on in the background, but we did not know what it was.

Now we have hindsight to overlay with our CTH warnings in late 2016 (Oct/Nov).

I suspect the DOJ-NSD knew Flynn was lobbying for clients closely related to the Turkish government.  I suspect Flynn was already under Title-3 surveillance (confirmed by Mueller report) and this lobbying issue likely became the legal predicate for a Flynn Title-1 FISA warrant.  [Go Deep To See] That 2016 FISA warrant, likely approved by FISA Judge Rudy Contreras, allowed the DOJ-NSD -via FBI (Strzok)- to launch a counterintelligence investigation into the people who hired Flynn as a lobbyist.

If my suspicion is correct, in addition to the larger surveillance issues upon Flynn, the DOJ-NSD knew the people who contracted Flynn and Rafiekian were a ‘front‘ for senior Turkish officials (not withstanding possible WH coordination).

(See Page 132 – Flynn Docs)

So when Flynn was confronted by DOJ-NSD head David Laufman, he was being *interviewed* by a DOJ official who knew more about the contract initiator than Flynn did.  The DOJ-NSD and David Laufman was involved because manipulating FARA violations was the method to conduct surveillance (SEE HERE).

David Laufman then pressured Flynn in January 2017 to sign the FARA submission, knowing it contained material that was false, but unbeknownst to Flynn.  This later became the predicate for the FARA case against Flynn and Rafiekian.

However, there’s a twist as highlighted by the Judge Trenga order.

The DOJ (Laufman first) knew the background of the FARA filing was false because they had conducted a FISA Title-1 investigation prior to the Flynn FARA submission; and the DOJ (Mueller team now in 2017) knew the Turkish government was behind the lobbying contract…..

….But the DOJ cannot tell the court how they knew the lobbying contract was from the Turkish government, because they didn’t want to reveal the FISA surveillance; AND the DOJ may have an additional interest in hiding their knowledge of their origination of the lobbying contract by the Turkish government,… because it might have been somewhat coordinated by the Obama White House (pro-brotherhood, and pro-Erdogan).

See the issue?

Slimy bastards.

        Look for Rachel “Ray” Chandler in the News
        An Anon (an anonymous poster) on 8chan posted this comment to the Q board: “Chandler = CHILD HANDLER these people are sick!” (“These people are sick!” is a phrase oft-repeated by Q, when posting.) Q answered this Anon by commenting on his post as follows: “If the records become unsealed much will be revealed. Watch the news for Rachel Chandler.” The unsealed records being referenced are those of Jeffrey Epstein that were unsealed in court recently. In anticipation of the unsealing of Epstein’s records and his eventual arrest, Q dropped this breadcrumb back in March: “WHAT HIGH-PROFILE ‘ELITE’ PEOPLE FUND AND PROVIDE RACHEL W/ HER PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIO? WHAT IS THE STUDIO USED FOR? WHAT IS THE STUDIO REALLY USED FOR? WHO HAS RC BEEN PICTURED WITH? THIS GOES FAR BEYOND SPIRIT COOKING MODELS.” Here, Q is hinting that Ray Chandler’s photography studio is not funded by profits from her photography business, nor is it really used to help beautiful young girls into a modeling or acting career. On the surface, that is what the studio seems to be, but Chandler’s true vocation is hooking up young girls (or boys) with Hollywood studios, media elites, and DC politicians (or even, on occasion, foreign dignitaries). The person Ray Chandler was recently pictured with was Bill Clinton. (Paste this search, courtesy of Yippy.com, into your browser to see how popular enquiries into Rachel Chandler have become.) The statement about her acting as a handler for these children going “beyond spirit cooking models” is a reference to the Satanic Ritual Abuse and the child sacrifice her efforts often lead to. Many children of actors have grown up to be disturbed individuals, while many others have died prematurely as children. What happened to these people?

      The Republican Party apparently does not put out a “press release” to journalists on these types of events. When the position is reversed, the Democrat Party puts together an “explanation” of the event for its media allies so that the lazy and ignorant press is spoon fed their analysis. The Republicans do not do this. If they did, the press is lazy enough that they might very well publish the 5th grade level written analysis of the event, but to ask the press to do the hard work of understanding is beyond their capabilities.

      One reason the Democrat Party is successful with the press is because they do the work that the low IQ lazy journalists refuse to do for themselves. Of course, the Democrat spin will always be there and the press will not question it. It would be too much work and by now the relationship is one of trust and gratitude between MSM and Democrat leadership.

    I’ll just comment on the legal shenanigans here.

    First, is the means by which the DOJ obtained information on Flynn’s activities with regard to his firm’s lobbying efforts. People are quick to assume that all surveillance requires a warrant. This is not true. Non-invasive surveillance, investigation, can be done without any type of warrant, as does not require the physical invasion of of a person’s privacy. Also, as Inovo is a foreign entity, and it is assumed that US IC would have knowledge of the ties that group has with the Turkish government, any communication by that group to interests or persons in the US could be monitored, legally, by the NSA. So, there would be no need for even a Title 3 FISA warrant on Flynn, let alone a Title 1 warrant. While FISA abuse did occur, not everything necessarily involves FISA abuse.

    Now, the Rafeikian/ FIG FARA case had multiple purposes. The first was to involve Michael Flynn in a criminal conspiracy. The second was to maintain pressure on Flynn and keep him on a leash by threatening his son, who was associated with FIG. To do that, the DOJ built a frame for Flynn, et al. And, that is what the current actions of the DOJ are all about. It has nothing to do with the source of the information. Forget FISA. If FISA was used, then the DOJ would not be trying to hide that fact. FISA is the umbrella under which invasive surveillance is made legal. The problem for the DOJ, here, is that they sought to put additional pressure on Flynn by actually prosecuting the FIG FARA case. When Flynn refused to lie, he was placed in the position of seeking other legal help to protect his son. That resulted in the DOJ’s frame-up being exposed and it responded by changing Flynn’s status from cooperating witness to co-conspirator, to up the pressure on him, for his cooperation. The actions of the DOJ, if accurate, are criminal violations. So, the players there have to protect themselves.

    The group, which was responsible for the get Trump operation, relied upon building a frame for every aspect of their plan. It was the basic MO of the group. It initially built the false Russian Collusion frame. It built the Papadapolous/Page frame to obtain FISA warrants. It built the Roger Stone frame. The only person it did not have to frame was Manafort, for his financial antics.

      So where is the “frame-up”, exactly? If all the evidence was obtained by legit government surveillance, then why is it a problem for them to prosecute the FIG FARA case? If I read it right, the point of SD in the OP above was government wrongdoing in collecting evidence on Flynn through illicit surveillance. According to you that’s apparently not true. If what you say is correct, I guess I don’t understand where the government did anything wrong.

      • The essence of the second case is that the persons FIG was talking to were, in fact, representatives of Turkey, and that this was not disclosed as per the FARA law. But the question then becomes if Flynn knew this … or if the information was deliberately withheld from him, in order to entrap him, by government officials who did know.

        Flynn finally got rid of his useless attorneys and brought in someone who will actually fight. And so, he refused to cop another plea – refused to say that he knew that the information on the application was false. This caused the government to inexplicably say that he, mirabile dictu, is now a “co-conspirator!”

        This is sounding more and more to me like unscrupulous prosecutors who are trying to play the Honorable Court for a fool. I could easily see both sets of charges thrown out.

      How can you actually and with a straight face switch your story from, “this person is going to be a witness of how person-X robbed the bank,” to “this person helped person-X rob the bank?”

      It seems increasingly apparent that these people set up Flynn, persuading him that he didn’t need a lawyer as they deceived him by leveraging information that he did not have, thus causing him to appear to perjure himself. And, that sort of thing is against the law.

          I can actually shed some light on this.

          It is permissible to give inaccurate information to a suspect in a criminal investigation in order to get them to change their statement. If the suspect changes his statement, you can not use that statement against him without independent corroborating evidence. Also, if an investigator has substantial evidence that a suspect committed a crime, the suspect usually is not charged with lying or obstruction, if he gives an inaccurate statement. The reason is that the state has to prove that the subject knowingly and intentionally lied. If the investigator knowingly tells the court that the subject knowingly and intentionally lied, without being able to prove it, that is one of a number of crimes. In this case, that appears to be the case.

But it is nonetheless a legitimate thing to object to how the Government is pursuing its case, and I think that his confession should be set aside in favor of a jury trial. I think that was, indeed, a “perjury trap.” If this man is in fact guilty of a crime, then IMHO only a jury should decide so.

    • Maybe that was Flynn’s biggest mistake- hiring a scumbag lawyer.

      It happens all the time.

        It does happen all the time. I didn’t realize how slimy my lawyers were until day of trial, then it’s too late. Absolute panic! Better settle, grrrrrr. Live and learn.

    Almost 2 pm eastern.
    No updates thru MSM on Flynn FARA case yet. Nothing about no conspiracy, no connection to Turkey, how other defendant requesting dismissal.
    These are huge stories and revelations regarding Flynn’s FBI/DOJ treatment and agreements.
    Why isn’t it being published?

      Beyond Flynn being a political mechanism to get to Trump, the MSM don’t care about Flynn. They prefer he just go to jail and be done with it.

  15. I think that’s a very plausible explanation.
    How you know I stole silverware from the pantry?
    Because I saw you while I was stealing a TV set from the study, you low-life.

    We exist in a life-support system for 10,000 attorneys as they continue to slice and dice proper behavior beyond any cognitive capacity to understand it and conduct ourselves appropriately, never mind legally. Seriously, this legal guild is a pox.

  17. So what, if anything, does this development have to do with Sidney Powell requesting a security clearance. My thought is when she asked that in his Mueller case, it may have been meant to extend to this one.

    So, if I am reading this right this is basically a case of entrapment. You said it, Sundance. Slimy bastards! I can hardly wait to see the tables turned.

    Sundance, your characterization of these cretins at DOJ as “slimy bastards” doesn’t seem harsh enough. However, I can’t come up with anything better at the moment.
