Michael Flynn and Sidney Powell Return to Court – Powell Confirms Rosenstein Authorized Targeting of Flynn Jr. for Leverage…

Today Michael Flynn and his attorney Sidney Powell returned to federal court for a status hearing before Judge Emmet Sullivan.  Generally status hearings are uneventful; however, this hearing falls on the heels of an explosive filing by Flynn’s defense outlining allegations of serious prosecutorial misconduct; and claims the DOJ is withholding Brady material.

Before getting into the heart of the proceedings, here is Ms. Sidney Powell appearing on Fox News to discuss the events today.  In this interview Ms. Powell confirms something we have previously presented; Rod Rosenstein authorized Robert Mueller to target Michael Flynn Jr. in order to provide leverage for a Flynn guilty plea.

.

Hat Tip Techno-Fog:  The DOJ prosecutor, Brandon Van Grack, has not filed a response to the Flynn defense motion. However, both sides argued some of the specifics today in court.

For scheduling: a date of Sept. 24th, 2019, was set by Judge Sullivan for the written DOJ response to Flynn’s accusations of Brady violations.  Thereafter the defense rebuttal to the DOJ response is due by October 15th; and then a hearing date of October 31st is scheduled for Sullivan to question both teams centered around the filings.  A tentative sentencing date was scheduled for December 18th, 2019, as a matter of formal proceeding.

 

Tone – Judge Sullivan appeared to be open to the defense presentations and established  during his statements that the plea agreement was between Flynn and the DOJ, and did not bind his court.  Therefore Sullivan’s prior order on Brady discovery supersedes any agreement between the defense and prosecution:

Thus the court establishes, despite the plea agreement, the DOJ is still responsible for delivering exculpatory Brady evidence that is relevant to the purpose of court proceedings; including material that should be considered for sentencing.

After hearing from Ms. Powell discussing Brady material showing Michael Flynn did not commit any FARA (lobbying) violation, Judge Sullivan gave an example of how the court considered Brady value around evidence of the FARA violation, or lack thereof.

In prior proceedings (December 2018) the DOJ implied benefit within the plea deal because Mr. Flynn was not charged with lobbying (FARA) violations.

The absence of legal responsibility would be considered a benefit to the defendant by the court.  However, if the actual evidence does not support the existence of a FARA violation then the court would be mistakenly considering a benefit within the plea.   Ms. Powell confirmed the example.

The bottom line is Judge Sullivan is open to reviewing all the exculpatory evidence that is required by his standing Brady order.  This is helpful to Flynn’s defense because it puts the DOJ on notice they must provide a fulsome picture of the Flynn case to both the defendant and the court.

Ms. Powell then highlighted some of the particular concerns surrounding missing Brady evidence.  Example: the DOJ sat on Page/Strzok texts for months in violation of the Court’s discovery order:

Prosecutor Brandon Van Grack then countered Ms. Powell by saying the DOJ “notified the defendant – that such communications existed”

But notice the DOJ doesn’t say they made the texts available to Flynn prior to his plea agreement November 30th 2017, only that they informed him “communications existed”.

Then after Flynn signed the plea agreement; and after the Page/Strzok texts were public; at the second Flynn sentencing hearing (Dec 2018); there were “texts provided that were not available to the public.”

That’s a rather stunning admission, because the DOJ is admitting the special counsel hid text messages from within the batches that were released to the public.  The special counsel later showed those ‘exculpatory‘ text messages to Flynn’s defense knowing they held a Brady value, and knowing the defense would be unable to make them public.

Considering these hidden text messages pertain to evidence of Flynn’s innocence, we can only imagine what those text messages are.

Moving on….

Additionally Ms. Powell highlighted two more documents the DOJ-NSD (Jessie Liu again) refuses to produce:

1) This is new….  A “Russian agent” exoneration memo dated 1/30/17 that apparently originated from inside the DOJ.

And…

2) A DOJ memo clearing Flynn of Logan Act on 2/8/17. (Remember, the “Logan Act” was said by Sally Yates to be a big part of the reason for the FBI to interview Flynn.)

Then Ms. Powell went on to discuss the issues surrounding the missing notes from FBI Agent Joseph Pientka, and the original FD-302 written by Pientka.  The DOJ says they don’t have it.

Judge Sullivan asked Ms. Powell if she was going to withdraw the guilty plea based on the direction she was going.  Ms. Powell said no, and pointed to the possibility of dismissal based on wrongful prosecution; and a case that would never have been brought if all the evidence was visible.

It will be interesting to see the official response from the DOJ to all of the claims and accusations.

The official DOJ response will is due in two weeks, 9/24/19 by high-noon.

It’s worth noting according to Mark Meadows the Office of Inspector General Michael Horowitz has interviewed FBI Agent 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 Flynn interview took place on January 24, 2017. The Pientka 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:

.

The original authorization for the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller was May 17th, 2017.  However, the released Mueller and Weissmann report showed there were two additional scope memos authorizing specific targeting of the Mueller probe.  The first scope memo was August 2nd, 2017, OUTLINED HERE, and is an important part of the puzzle that helps explain the corrupt original purpose of the special counsel.

The second scope memo was issued by Rod Rosenstein to Robert Mueller on October 20th, 2017.  The transparent intent of the second scope memo was to provide Weissmann and Mueller with ammunition and authority to investigate specific targets, for specific purposes.  One of those targets was General Michael Flynn’s son, Michael Flynn Jr.

As you review the highlighted portion below, found on pages 12 and 13 of the Weissmann report, read slowly and fully absorb the intent; the corruption is blood-boiling:

This second scope memo allowed Weissmann and Mueller to target tangentially related persons and entities bringing in Michael Cohen, Richard Gates, Roger Stone and Michael Flynn Jr.  Additionally and strategically (you’ll see why), this memo established the authority to pursue “jointly undertaken activity“.

The four identified targets within the original July 2016 investigation, “Operation Crossfire Hurricane”, were George Papadopoulos, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort and Carter Page. (See HPSCI report):

General Flynn was under investigation from the outset in mid-2016. The fraudulent FBI counterintelligence operation, established by CIA Director John Brennan, had Flynn as one of the early targets when Brennan handed the originating electronic communication “EC” to FBI Director James Comey.

The investigation of General Flynn never stopped throughout 2016 and led to the second investigative issue of his phone call with Russian Ambassador Kislyak in December 2016:

Back to the Page #12 October 20th Scope Memo:

The first redaction listed under “personal privacy” has not been revealed. However, The second related redaction is a specific person, Michael Flynn Jr.

In combination with the October timing, the addition of Flynn Jr to the target list relates to the ongoing 2016/2017 investigation of his father, General Michael Flynn, for: (1) possible conspiracy with a foreign government; (2) unregistered lobbying; (3) materially false statements and omissions on 2017 FARA documents; and (4) lying to the FBI.

This October 20th, 2017, request from Weissmann and Mueller aligns with the time-frame were special counsel team lawyers Brandon L. Van Grack and Zainab N. Ahmad were prosecuting Michael Flynn and attempting to force him into a guilty plea

Getting Rosenstein to authorize adding Mike Flynn Jr. to the target list (scope memo) meant the special counsel could threaten General Flynn with the indictment of his son as a co-conspirator tied to the Turkish lobbying issue (which they did) if he doesn’t agree to a plea. Remember: “jointly undertaken activity“.

The October 20th, 2017, expanded scope memo authorized Mueller to start demanding records, phones, electronic devices and other evidence from Mike Flynn Jr, and provided the leverage Weissmann wanted.  After all, Mike Flynn Jr. had a four month old baby. 

The amount of twisted pressure from this corrupt team of prosecutors is sickening.  A month later, General Flynn was signing a plea agreement:

          It is astounding that the FISA court itself has not dealt with false and misleading representations in its own proceedings.
          Lawyers have an obligation as officers of any Federal Court to prevent the Court from being misled by false evidence. Further, in any ex parte proceeding, such as the secret Star Chamber FISC proceedings where there is no balance of presentation by opposing advocates, the DunJ/FBI lawyers have an extra-heavy duty to tell the truth, to disclose all material facts, and to avoid withholding exculpatory evidence. In ex parte proceedings against unrepresented defendants in a secret Star Chamber court, the judge has an extra heavy affirmative responsibility to accord unrepresented US Citizens just consideration of their Constitutional rights. Here, with the 2-hop rule, the “absent parties” are up to 60 million US Citizens contacted in some way by the GOP, Trump Presidential campaign, and the Trump White House Executive Branch. The FISC has had, and still has, an affirmative obligation to formally withdraw the falsely-obtained Warrant, to discipline the signers of the false “Motions to Spy”, and to discipline the DunJ (Department of UnJustice) lawyers who presented, perpetrated and extended it multiple times.

          But the FISC has done nothing, so far as we know. This is despite the FISC being forced by Admiral Rogers to admit that 85% of the spying on US Citizens under the “Constitutional protection” of the FISC court has been illegal. Disgusting….

              But while Roberts has special responsibility for the bad behavior of the FISC, the individual FISC judges, and the Chief Judge Rosemary Collyer are also fully responsible for protecting the court from being misled, for disciplining lawyers and evidence-oath-signers who mislead the court, and for withdrawing, nunc pro tunc, any improvidently granted spy warrants on 60 million US citizens. A ruling nunc pro tunc (“now for then”) applies retroactively to correct an earlier ruling.

            Agree, Beau. One thing is still fishy. Does anyone ever mention the possibility that the FISA judges are just as corrupt? How could any of them read that dossier and not say “This is ridiculous!” or at least, question it. It seems as if the verification provided the cover the judges needed to protect themselves.

            Surely, they knew of the corrupt nature of Weissmann, Mueller (heck, anyone living in Massachusetts knew about HIM) and Rosenstein. Do they expect us to believe that everyone in D.C. is oblivious of all that goes on in the Swamp? Good guys know who the bad guys are. The FISA court’s decisions stink.

              BebeTarget, you are on target. The FISA judge(s) clearly must have known this was a “Motion to Spy on a Presidential Campaign for Hillary”. They knew very well the Constitutional issues with spying on a political campaign FOR PRESIDENT. Yet they held no hearings to cross-examine evidence-oath signers. They did not limit the 2-hop spying, so that only Carter Page, Papadopoulous, etc would be spied on. The FISA Court did not ask for specific evidence that Carter Page is a foreign agent (who was actually a CIA/FBI agent who testified for the DunJ before). They didn’t ask for “clarification” of “what is known about Steele/Fusion, and how did Papadopoulous get $10K in marked bills the FBI planned to trap him with, or any recordings of Halper/mifsud or Page relating to the fake representation of “foreign agency”. The FISC played a major role in the coup attempt. If the FISC met its responsibilities under the Constitution to protect Due Process, this entire coup “russia, russia, pee pee dossier” would never have happened. And the FISC is still at it, by failing to discipline those who misled it, and its failure to withdraw the 4 phony “Spy on the President” warrants/extensions.

        Does Rod even wear a hat at all? It seems more like a windsock. Since Comey was held in low esteem by both Repubs & Dems, he wrote the memo to fire him thinking he would be a hero to the masses. The Dems turned on him and thus he placated them by giving them what they wanted to remain in their good graces. Thus, the comment of “you want me to wear a wire, Andy?” is probably legit as the coup plotters were considering outrageous solutions to stop Trump. His name should be changed to Rodless Rosenstein as he has no spine and similarly, jellyfish wear no hats.

          That’s my take on Rosenstein as well. He is to this what Alcibiades was to the Peloponnesian War – someone who switched sides multiple times, and in Rod’s case, whichever way the wind was blowing. When the wind was blowing in the “fire Comey” direction, he went that way, when it blew in the “Get Trump on collusion” direction, he went that way, and when the collusion narrative started to collapse, he changed directions again.

          I think it’s possible that Trump kept him around and didn’t accept his earlier offer to resign so that he would be forced to talk to the IG, since he certainly figured in that probe. Disappointingly, I think he also might have gotten some sort of immunity to come clean and spill his guts on everything he knew in the pursuit of bigger fish. It would definitely be unsatisfying to see him skate, although if it eventually leads to putting others like Strzrok, Comey, Brennan, and various members of the Mueller team in prison, I’ll take it. I’d like his scalp, but there are other scalps I’d like more.

IMHO…focus should go farther back than 2015/2016…how about the fact that neither the FBI, CIA, or DOJ are constitutional in the first place.

    The AG was a PART TIME job until the 1870’s. The DOJ didn’t exist until the 1870’s. The FBI didn’t exist until 1908. And the CIA didn’t exist until 1947. There is ZERO authority for the any of the activities within any of these organization in the Constitution. Per the Constitution, ALL law made by Congress MUST be made “in Pursuance” to the Constitution…if not, those laws are UNLAWFUL.

    The bottom line is that the existence of the FBI, DOJ, and CIA are incompatible with the Law of the Land – the Constitution. As such, they can not coexist. Solutions are few:

    1. Accept the validity of the FBI/DOJ/CIA and tear up the Constitution.
    2. Acknowledge the Constitution as the Law of the Land and dissolve the FBI/DOJ/CIA.
    3. Amend the Constitution to include enumerated authority for the FBI/DOJ/CIA.

        Great points; however, I would contend that the authority for Homeland Security is NOT enumerated in the Constitution.

        IIRC, Homeland Security was formed in 2002 by Congress. “Homeland security” is enumerated to the DoD and State militias in the Constitution. Congress has NO authority to create a new department and then transfer pre-existing enumerated power to it. Therefore, creation of the Dept of Homeland Security is NOT “in Pursuance” of the Constitution; thereby, UNLAWFUL legislation; thereby. NULL AND VOID….unless the Constitution is amended to transfer homeland security form the DoD and State militias.

        Of note, the Dick Act of 1902 and the Militia Act of 1903 denuded the State Militias despite verbiage in the Second Amendment:

        “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

        2A CLEARLY states that “a well regulated Militia” shall NOT be infringed. Additionally, 2A CLEARLY enumerated that the purpose of the “Militia” is “necessary to the security of the free State.” Therefore, since both the Dick and Militia Acts remove a States’ right to security itself and transfer the authority to the Federal government in DIRECT violation of the Second Amendment; BOTH Acts are unlawful.

        We the People must pull back “the curtain of OZ” and realize that neither the Executive, Legislative, or Judicial branches of the federal government can ALTER the Constitution without amending it.

The role of direct governance (to protect the rights of the people) was reserved to States, Counties, and Townships. The FBI directly interferes with local governments and law agencies. Examples include the FBI seizing jurisdiction from local authorities and asset forfeiture.

        We the People have been conditioned to accept that federal law is supreme (the Incorporation Doctrine). This conditioning has been promoted by a bribed MSM and an agenda-motivated (power/financial enriched) legal class. Additionally, the 16th Amendment made legal the theft of personal property of Americans and the use of these stolen assets to bribe Sate governments to acquiesce to a tyrannical central government. States are now addicted to federal money that inherently comes with attached rules and regulations (conditions via administrative law).

        Squirrel! Our sites are focused on national issues, when they should be focused on the election of local sheriffs who understand their duty to preserve, defend, and protect the Constitution. Sheriffs have the guns. Sheriffs can encourage local militias. In concert, both can DEFY the unconstitutional interference of a tyrannical/out-of-control central government in the live of everyday citizens.

Flynn’s intervention on behalf of Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz was highly unusual, and included a letter in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationary, a public interview in 2015 supporting Gritz’s case and an offer to testify on her behalf. His offer put him as a hostile witness in a case against McCabe, who was soaring through the bureau’s leadership ranks.

      The FBI sought to block Flynn’s support for the agent, asking a federal administrative law judge in May 2014 to keep Flynn and others from becoming a witness in her Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) case, memos obtained by Circa show. Two years later, the FBI opened its inquiry of Flynn…”

    Note 1
    I am paraphrasing here – “We made Flynn and his attorneys AWARE of (not given over but a backhanded acknowledgement) the [Brady] communications before his guilty plea. So now that Flynn plead guilty we don’t have to give Flynn the exculpatory material showing he was innocent.”

    That is some world class, Catch 22, pretzel making, right there! Do DOJ lawyers write their briefs in crayon as well? Are they really that arrogant? Rhetorical question, we all know the answer these days.

    Note 2
    Zoe at Buzzfeed – “Sullivan asks if the government stands by its earlier sentencing representations. Van Grack says they’ll refile something when it’s appropriate — which is very different from saying they stand by what they said before.”

    Many are speculating that the government will ask to drop all sentencing requirements and let Flynn walk.

    From what we have seen from this DOJ, I think they will double down as hard as possible on the Flynn sentencing representations.

    YMMV, but I say – damn these corrupt people to hell.

Other information, probably classified and NOT submitted by the government. From where, from who, from when and regarding what – is this the information in the Hannity video (@ ~4:21) paraphrasing: “Stay tuned. Things will become more and more apparent as we proceed through the litigation.”

    Starting on line 9, page 12 of the document:
    MS. POWELL: And I do think most of the information I will need to review may be classified. I don’t know for sure, but out of an abundance of caution and to have –
    THE COURT: Notwithstanding the government’s representations?
    MS. POWELL: That’s with regards to what they produced. There is other information.
    THE COURT: Oh. All right. Now you’ve piqued the government’s interest.
    MR. VAN GRACK: Your Honor, again, I’m not — again, in terms of the information the government produced, there’s nothing that the government produced that’s classified, and so — I mean — to the extent –
    THE COURT: But you’d like to know what this other information is, too.
    MR. VAN GRACK: Obviously, there would need to be some sort of — I would assume the Court would want some specificity in terms of the basis for getting a security clearance from the government, which is in possession of the classified information, and is indicating there is no —
    THE COURT: You raise a good point, counsel. Can I speak to the classified information security officer at the bench for a second, please?

    Reads as if Ms. Powell has knowledge of documentation. Is it possible that there is classified documentation that Van Grack was/is unaware of? With luck the swamp rats are in the process of entrapping themselves in a wolverina’s den.

    I’m pleased to see that Sidney Powell plans to challenge the flat-out intentional lying and concealing of material facts by FBI/Comey to President Trump.

    18 US Code 1001 provides “…whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive… branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly and willfully—
    (1)
    falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or device, a material fact;
    (2)
    makes any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation; or
    (3)
    makes or uses any false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent or entry;
    shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 5 years or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as defined in section 2331), imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both. If the matter relates to an offense under chapter 109A, 109B, 110, or 117, or section 1591, then the term of imprisonment imposed under this section shall be not more than 8 years.

    There is no statute that authorizes violation of 18 USC 1001 by an underling such as comey, to the President of the US, his ultimate boss. The FBI lives by the 18 USC 1001 sword, and should also die by the 18 USC 1001 sword, when they intentionally lie to the President or others.

    IIRC, Comey has admitted he was specifically quickly targeting General Flynn before the new President and the White House staff could get legally organized. The coup plotters quickly and abruptly targeted General Flynn in this way with the intent and purpose to avoid having White House counsel present to monitor and protect General Flynn. No “Miranda” warning was given to General Flynn that he was a target (of a plan to first f*ck Flynn, then f*ck Trump). The purpose, and end result of failure to provide a Miranda Warning, Constitutionally required for criminal targeting, was the intended prosecution of General Flynn. I would also like to see Sidney Powell raise the Miranda defense, which the Department of UnJustice (DunJ) would fight tooth-and-nail because avoiding the Constitutionally-REquired Due Process Miranda warning is crucial for DunJ/FBI 18 USC 1001 attacks on innocent citizens who the FBI wants to “get”, but haven’t committed a crime.

    “Compel production of Brady Material,” ”“Must comply with the Court’s standing Brady order,” “FARA violation,” “factual predicate,” ‘Yunis says…more than just theoretical relevance,” “no Logan Act violation,” “longtime suppression of crucial Brady material…”

    This legal banter is not the game of Chess. Chess has a playing field, a set number of players and rigid rules about how each move its made. What is taking play is as Dickens wrote in Bleak House: “here they are — mistily engaged in one of the ten thousand stages of an endless cause, tripping one another up on slippery precedents, groping knee-deep in technicalities, running their goat-hair and horse-hair warded heads against walls of words, and making a pretense of equity with serious faces ….”

    In Brady v Maryland (1963) the Supreme Court ruled that suppression by the prosecution of evidence to a defendant who has requested it violates due process. The farce in this is clear: the defendant (poor soul) has to know such evidence exists.

    Here is Rule 16 of the Federal Rules Criminal Procedures which requires “discovery and inspection.” “Upon the defendant’s request, the government must disclose to the defendant the substance of…” any oral statement, written or recorded statement, defendant’s testimony before a grand jury, books, papers, documents, data, photographs, tangible objects in the government’s possession, custody or control.” Only a rat find’s a “special loophole” in the intent of Rule 16.

    Hiding evidence, whether exculpatory or inculpatory, is not Chess, nor is it “cricket.” It is a game of cut-throat and to quote Dicken’s once more: “….. even those who have contemplated its history from the outermost circle of such evil, have been insensibly tempted into a loose way of letting bad things alone to take their own bad course, and a loose belief that if the world go wrong, it was, in some offhand manner, never meant to go right.”

    Think upon this: The Department of Justice is a cavernous pit of lawyers all engaged in being overly clever and compelled to succeed and be noticed. Near the top, the agenda lawyers carve themselves out from the rest and became a self-anointed cabal.

    How can any Inspector General monitor the whirlpools and eddies forming among 10,000 lawyers? The individual lawyer at DoJ is charged to proceed with ethical values and conscience fully in control. But the practical, rational lawyer is also self-interested and motivated to become “noticed” within the herd of lawyers at the DoJ. Soon enough, Justice and politics become joined and planning, causes and even plotting become a part of the process.

    Sidney Powell knows the turf, understands the lingo, has a good reading on the egos and is a highly effective destroyer who can out-maneuver the battleships. I will leave it to her to play out her strategy as she sees fit. My hope is that she takes careful aim and puts her shots into the nerve center of DoJ pockets of corruption and political enmity.

    Among all of the points that Sydney brought up I’d like to highlight one (Sundance did as well ) that I mentioned in a previous article on this subject. As I said before when you compare the Pientka notes, the original 302, and the subsequent “deliberative” 302 there might be significant differences. Admittedly that was a speculation on my part based on what I knew at the time, but Sydney has now confirmed that to be a fact. And I quote ” We’ve already, for example, identified material differences between the agents’ notes from their interviews of Mr. Flynn on the 24th and the 302 they produced.”
    This 302 would be the later edited version that was considered a “draft” or deliberative piece that they messaged to make it appear as though Flynn was lying. They needed time to comb through the evidence they’d gather up to that point, they needed to find a “hook” to snag Flynn on and they found it in the background financing of the company Flynn was working for.
    The original 302 wouldn’t have shown this connection or possibly even mentioned it, because it wasn’t known to Strzok or Pientka at the time it was written. That’s the reason they can’t find it, they don’t want to have to explain why they thought he was telling the truth one day and month later deciding he was lying. They were so intent on prosecuting him for a crime, that they had to manufacture one, and what better way to pull that off then force him into a plea deal and get him to forfeit his right to discovery.
    Sydney is an absolute God send and I pray these lying pieces of shite go to jail for a long time…they deserve it Not Michael Flynn.

      The very fact that the FBI writes (and re-writes) form 312’s as “evidence” of actual conversations, rather than actual recordings, is totally corrupt.

      From the Strzok/Page texts, they were discussing and negotiating at high FBI level, what would go on a 302 form which was officially to be the exact evidence of an earlier conversation. Any court should throw out this kind of FBI “post-massaged evidence”.

      They never gave General Flynn notice that he was under criminal investigation. In fact, they INTENTIONALLY entrapped him before the new Administration had a chance to be organized enough to get counsel present. If they had given him a Due Process Constitutional Miranda-type Warning that he was under criminal threat and investigation with a right to a lawyer, General Flynn would have said “no thank you, lets get together when I have a personal lawyer, and White House Counsel present”. Instead, they entrapped him, criminally prosecuted him, and threatened his family to extort a guilty plea to misstatement under 18 USC 1001. This was around the same time that the FBI was intentionally lying to President Trump that Trump was NOT under investigation, in much clearer violation of the same 18 USC 1001 statute.

          This behavior admits evil intent to entrap, not to “find the truth” of the Kislyak-Flynn conversation which the FBI already had verbatim. The FBI rushed to ask General Flynn “trick questions” about a conversation it already had secretly recorded, for the purpose of generating some difference of recollection it could claim was a misrepresentation under 18 USC 1001. The FBI specifically targeted Flynn criminally, to generate a fake crime under 18 USC 1001, knowing the new administration had likely not set up protective procedures, and did not tell General Flynn he was under criminal attack as required by the intent of Due Process under the Constitution. The FBI does not record its fake interviews, it writes “302” repoerts, which in Flynn’s case looks like it was written, negotiated, and approved later by a high-level committee of coup-plotters.

          And Judge Sullivan refuses to release the Kislyak-Flynn transcript, which the FBI (and potentially Judge Sullivan) assert General Flynn lied about. One of the most critical pieces of evidence, which the FBI and Judge Sullivan want to keep hidden and out of the record.

I used to think Page, Strzok Et al were just elitist snobs with a misplaced sense of patriotism, but the more information that comes out shows just how incredibly corrupt these A holes were.

    People such as Rosenstein and Mueller are criminals with criminal minds. It is a disaster we have people as they are running our highest levels of government. The issue isn’t they are some kind of rogue, but they are the norm.

    Thank God Almighty that Sidney Powell is now representing General Flynn.

    The Fed prosecutors are now GROSSLY OVERMATCHED.

    And I truly hope that Van Whack, et al Fed prosecutors are SEVERELY disciplined (premanently DISBARRED) by the applicable professional Legal orgs.

    General Flynn must not only be exonerated in full, indeed, the Fed’ Gov’t should be made to pony up for 100% of Gen Flynn’s legal expenses incurred on cases that should have NEVER been brought to trial!!

        Agreed Sturmudgeon,
        Perhaps I was a tad hasty in that portion of my commentary. My apologies.

        IF there was a way for our justice system to hold people like Rosenstein, Mueller, Comey & everyone else right on down the damn FBI/DOJ line FINANCALLY RESPONSIBLE to Gen. Flynn in addition to charging them criminally, then I am right there in agreement with you.

        Maybe it’s high time that Gov’t employees are held FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE to the injured party(ies) for their abhorant behavior.

        Consider for starters that McCabe’s forreited pension (the Fed’s contributions to McCabe) would be an excellent STARTING POINT for something like this.

        And others who are now drawing their pension would wake up 1 day to find that some/most/all of their pension has suddenly been ATTACHED akin to how states extract chlld support from one’s earnings.

    So, Flynn may do hard time because under duress he pled guilty to a noncrime when the FIB withheld evidence of his innocence. That evidence is now deemed immaterial because he pled guilty. And now DoJ may also go after Flynn Jr because Flynn Sr got a lawyer to try to get him out of his bad deal. Justice is blind, they say. Also demented.

    The question of who is listed in the redacted names in the October scope memo is intriguing. Based on the names that were unredacted, we can see that these are listed alphabetically, presumably not to imply that one person listed is worthy of more suspicion than another.

    Names that would fit the alphabetical scheme are Erik Prince and Donald Trump, Jr., with one further short name in the list.

    We know from news reports that Erik Prince was investigated by the Special Counsel for a supposed Trump-Putin back channel involving a meeting in the Seychelles with Kirill Dmitriev. Also, Prince has said he learned he had been unmasked by Obama officials. Perhaps there was even a FISA on him. But given the separate set of circumstances of Prince’s alleged involvement, naturally the Special Counsel would have sought specific authorization to investigate Prince from Rosenstein. Prince said he cooperated with the Special Counsel investigation.

    Likewise, the Special Counsel would have wanted Rosenstein’s specific authorization to investigate the Trump tower meeting by Donald Trump, Jr. with the Russian lawyer that seems obviously to have been arranged by Fusion GPS to try to dirty him up. So almost certainly Donald Trump, Jr. is listed in a scope memo.

    With respect to the allegations against Michael Flynn, Jr., these were not related to Russia at all. So he is probably not actually listed in the October scope memo. The Special Counsel would have worked with anti-Trump people in the US Attorney for DC to coordinate using Flynn, Jr. as leverage against General Flynn. Similarly to how Michael Cohen’s matters that had nothing to do with Russia were actually handled by the US Attorney for SDNY coordinating with Mueller’s team.

    Transposing all this to the present gets interesting. They all know that we know and Obama knows that we know that it was all him/Val. They also know Biden is just looking for the right banana peel and that Warren carries a lot of baggage. They would love to run Michael for president but they are not sure there isn’t a jumpsuit out there with Obama’s name on it; curtains for Mike.. Last night in N C made them breathe even harder.

    After reading those unimpressive notes of the Flynn interview, I’d rather see the almost $9 billion annual budget for the FBI be re-directed to building an even bigger, better wall. At least we would be able to, with our own adult eyes, observe SOMETHING for $$$ sent to Washington. Stepping back from the trees for a minute and looking at the forest, it appears the $40 milliion in special counsel fleecing, POTUS declassification with nothing revealed, countless delay for a imperfect day of justice and more useless political grandstanding have left all the trees still standing tall, much to the delight of ALL these taxpayer dollar recipients.

    Every one of them is running to the bank EXCEPT POTUS WHO IS NOT TAKING ONE $DIME$ and cashing their checks in exchange for nothing but the hope for some emotional satisfaction and guarantee of more wasteful expenditure. All the praise in the world to POTUS for having the patience to expose this enormous charade and bearing the thorn of malfeasance he would never have knowingly put up with in his prior livelihood. In the private world, shit like this would last one month in a large company, one week in a mid-size company, one day in a small company, one hour in a sole proprietorship, 15 minutes in a household and three minutes in a drug deal gone bad.

    There is plenty of state and local law enforcement and tribunals established to cover the interior of this great land. We have a military charged with keeping us free from all invasion and safe on the high sea. We have a 2nd Amendment to keep all things in check. If POTUS is leading us by good, non-violent example, he is showing We The People the solution is in the demand for a more useful purpose of our taxpayer $$$. The minutiae within those 10 pages of duplicity provide little reason to further fund some corrupt federal police station, top secret court system and sealed criminal legal proceedings.

    At the 6:32 mark Sidney Powell says that lying to the President is a violation of 18 United States Code 1001 and Jeanine Pirro says “It is.” Yet Comey told President Trump three times he wasn’t under investigation! This is new to me I never heard that lying to a President was illegal. Has that been discussed before? How did I miss that and why is no one talking about that law? Need some free legal advice!

      Bubby,
      Title 18 United States Code Section 1001 is the criminal law that the FBI and DunJ (Department of Unjustice) apply when they want to “get” someone, but can’t prove a crime. For example, this was the charge against “Scooter” Libby, Martha Stewart, Papadopoulous and Roger Stone – that they “lied” to a government official (such as from the FBI). No-one should ever talk to the FBI without a lawyer present. Or just say “no thank you”. The FBI makes up their version of a conversation on a later “form 302”, rather than recording the actual conversation. In the case of General Flynn, they even had a committee decide on the “evidence” and wording of the 302, which they then claim is evidence.

      18 USC 1001 provides:
      whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly and willfully—
      (1) falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or device a material fact;
      (2) makes any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation; or
      (3) makes or uses any false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry;
      shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 5 years or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as defined in section 2331), imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both. If the matter relates to an offense under chapter 109A, 109B, 110, or 117, or section 1591, then the term of imprisonment imposed under this section shall be not more than 8 years.

      Comey has admitted he repeatedly lied to President Trump. The FBI has admitted that it covered up material facts from Congress. There are clear intentional, knowing violations of 18 USC 1001 by the FBI and DunJ.

      It is good that Sidney Powell is raising this issue of lawlessness by the FBI/DunJ.

      The FBI also has violated General Flynn’s Constitutional right to Due Process and Equal Protection. The FBI has admitted that they rushed an attack interview with General Flynn before the new Administration could get procedures in place to protect White House personnel with interview-attending law counsel. The FBI admitted it indicated to General Flynn that he was not under criminal investigation so he was more comfortable and relaxed (so they could trick him with their criminal scheming and attack). Had they been truthful with General Flynn that they were scheming to entrap him criminally by getting him to misrecollect a conversation they already recorded and had verbatim transcripts, and had they given him a Miranda-type warning necessary for Due Process, he would have said “how about meeting another day when I have counsel present”. They would not have entrapped him. They are biased, political slime….

  47. Sorry I didn’t have time to read 427 prior comments.
    My one statement is that maybe Barr is sitting on his hands because the Flynn case resolution is the linchpin to bringing down the cabal. And if commenter “Cali” was correct months ago (comment here: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/06/24/michael-flynn-was-not-unmasked-evidence-flynn-was-under-active-fisc-authorized-surveillance/comment-page-2/#comment-7136254) Flynn will bring them all down.
    That being said, some of what Cali stayed seemed OTT. But I’m beginning to think he’s closer to the target than I originally believed.
