Smart Move – Flynn Lawyer Tells Judge Motive Behind Why Flynn Took Guilty Plea…

Many people have wondered why Lt. Gen Michael Flynn took the guilty plea; indeed, even his trial judge, Emmet Sullivan, posed curious questions about the agreement.  Yesterday, in a very smart move on behalf of her client, defense Attorney Sidney Powell informed the court why Mike Flynn took the guilty plea on November 30th, 2017.
Background – As part of ongoing proceedings and consideration Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan had requested a status update about the ongoing cooperation of Michael Flynn in the trial of his former business partner Bijan Rafiekian.   On September 24th Federal Judge Anthony J Trenga nullified the jury verdict against Rafiekian and tossed the case.
Flynn’s lawyer, Sidney Powell, now files a motion to update trial judge Emmet Sullivan. However, in a smart legal move, and using the jury nullification within the status report, Powell also outlined the reason why her client took a guilty plea (pdf link):

As highlighted, Michael Flynn -under pressure from Mueller’s prosecutors- signed a plea to avoid his son, Mike Flynn Jr., being indicted/accused.  As we suspected General Flynn signed a plea deal to avoid seeing his son charged with a fabricated FARA violation.
It is a smart strategy for Flynn’s defense to inform Judge Sullivan -now- of the undue pressure and threat from Mueller’s assigned prosecutor Brandon Van Grack.

First, this information will help Judge Sullivan reconcile many of the troubling aspects behind the Flynn plea.  Against ongoing defense and prosecution arguments about Brady evidence, the highlight in this short status update will not be missed; it will reconcile to the court why Flynn’s defense attorney is seeking supplemental information.
Second, the timing is smart.  Strategically the next time each party squares off in court, Judge Sullivan will have a frame of reference.  Additionally, Judge Sullivan now has the legal insight of his peer, Judge Andrew Trenga; along with the thoughts and information behind why Judge Trenga took the extraordinary step of nullifying a jury decision and dismissing the case.  The DOJ prosecutors facing Sullivan will be on egg-shells.
Mueller’s corrupt prosecutors used legally sketchy FARA violations, and threats therein, against many of their targets.  Those tenuous legal theories have now been dispatched in two separate cases: Bijan Rafiekian (Flynn Intel Group), and Greg Craig (Obama White House).  [Additionally the DOJ dropped the FARA investigation of Tony Podesta and Vin Weber for the same reasons.]
As a result of prior cases showing malicious prosecutions under false FARA pretenses, Flynn’s defense doesn’t have to try and convince Judge Sullivan that Michael Flynn and Mike Flynn Jr. were being threatened by those same heavy-handed DOJ tactics.  It is now self-evident those tactics were deployed; the prosecution would be silly to try and deny their threats were present.
This explanation to Judge Sullivan, in combination with prior judicial outcomes, creates a fulsome and self-evident picture for Sullivan to see what was taking place in the background… without defense attorney Sidney Powell having to try and explain.
It will be interesting to see how the DOJ responds to the requests from Flynn’s defense counsel for further documents.  It will also be interesting to see how the explanation for Flynn’s plea is viewed by Judge Sullivan.   Here’s the recent status report by Powell:
[scribd id=428164045 key=key-72MaqxEAX0BVudqJ35kG mode=scroll]
Hat Tip Techno-Fog for the filing.
.
A second expanded 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:

Page #12 October 20th Scope Memo:


The first redaction listed under “personal privacy” is unknown. 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:

But wait, it gets worse…

~ Mike Flynn Was Under a Fraudulently Obtained FISA Title-1 Surveillance Warrant ~

{Deep Weeds} The official media account of how the intelligence community gained the transcript of incoming National Security Adviser Michael Flynn talking to Ambassador Sergey Kisliyak on December 29th, 2016, surrounds “incidental collection” as a result of contact with an agent of a foreign power. Meaning the Flynn call was picked up as the U.S. intelligence apparatus was conducting surveillance on Russian Ambassador Kisliyak.
If this version of events were accurate (it’s not), it would fall under FISA-702 collection: the lawful monitoring of a foreign agent (Kislyak) who has contact with a U.S. person (Flynn).
In order to review the identity of the U.S. person, a process called ‘unmasking’, a 702 submission must be made. That submission, the unmasking, leaves a paper/electronic trail.  In a 2017 congressional hearing, Senator Lindsey Graham asks Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and former DNI James Clapper about this process. [Watch first 3 minutes prompted]

In the two-and-a-half years following this testimony, there was nothing that would deliver the answer as to: who unmasked General Michael Flynn?

The reason is simple, Flynn wasn’t unmasked – because Flynn was under FISC authorized active surveillance.  Here’s how we know:

♦ First, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok were watching that hearing where Senator Lindsey Graham was questioning Sally Yates and James Clapper.  As they discussed in their text messages the issue of “unmasking” is irrelevant.  “incidental collection” is the “incorrect narrative”:
The “incidental collection” is an “incorrect narrative” because the collection was not incidental.  Flynn was actively being monitored.  Flynn was under an active FISA surveillance warrant.
♦ Second, more evidence of Flynn under active surveillance is found in the Mueller report where the special prosecutor outlines that Flynn was under an active investigation prior to the phone call with Ambassador Kislyak:
Mary McCord was the Assistant Attorney General in charge of the DOJ National Security Division, after John Carlin left in October of 2016.  McCord would have signed-off on the Flynn FISA warrant, or any extension therein, throughout the Trump transition period.
[McCord was also the person who Sally Yates took with her to the White House to confront White House Counsel Don McGahn about the Flynn call and FBI interview.]
♦ Third, from the 2017 House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), when Devin Nunes was Chairman, the four targets of the Trump campaign -under investigation throughout 2016- were outlined:

SUMMARY: ♦In real time Lisa Page and Peter Strzok were saying the “incidental contact” (unmasking) narrative was incorrect.  ♦Then Devin Nunes outlines the targets of the 2016 FBI investigation which included Flynn.  ♦Then Robert Mueller says Flynn was under investigation prior to the 12/29/16 phone call with Kislyak.
Put it all together and…. (1) There was never an unmasking request because the collection was not incidental…. (2) Because the intercept was not incidental. (3) Because the intercept was part of the FISA court granting a surveillance warrant.
The lack of incidental collection is why FISA-702 doesn’t apply; and why there’s no paper trail to an unmasking request.  The intercept was not ‘incidental‘ because the intercept was the result of direct monitoring and FISC authorized surveillance being conducted on Michael Flynn.
There are only three options:

  1. Incidental collection = unmasking request.
  2. Direct intercept / Legal = Active FISA Title-1 surveillance authority.
  3. Direct intercept / Illegal = Active surveillance without Title-1 authority.

All of the evidence from documents over the past two years indicates #2 was the status of Michael Flynn at the time of the Sergey Kislak call.
The incoming National Security Advisor of President-Elect Donald Trump was under active Title-1 FBI surveillance as granted by the FISA court.  That’s how the FBI intercepted the phone call with Sergey Kislyak and why there’s no unmasking request.
This doesn’t deal with the propriety of the FISA warrant, or the legal basis, the legal predicate that must exist prior to granting the FISA warrant.  However, accepting that Michael Flynn was under court approved surveillance reconciles all the issues.
Additionally, this would explain two more issues.  #1) President Obama warning incoming President Trump not to hire Michael Flynn as his Nat. Sec. Advisor; and #2) a very strong possibility that Flynn’s status is the redacted paragraph in the January 20th, 2016, Susan Rice memo.
At 12:15pm on January 20th, 2017, Obama’s outgoing National Security Advisor Susan Rice wrote a memo-to-self.  Many people have called this her “CYA” (cover your ass) memo, from the position that Susan Rice was protecting herself from consequences if the scheme against President Trump was discovered.  Here’s the email:

“On January 5, following a briefing by IC leadership on Russian hacking during the 2016 Presidential election, President Obama had a brief follow-on conversation with FBI Director Jim Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates in the Oval Office. Vice President Biden and I were also present.
President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities “by the book“.
The President stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.
From a national security perspective, however, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.”
[Redacted Classified Section of Unknown length]
“The President asked Comey to inform him if anything changes in the next few weeks that should affect how we share classified information with the incoming team. Comey said he would.”
Susan Rice ~ (pdf link)

I would suggest the redacted section relates to President Trump being under FBI investigation; and/or incoming National Security Advisor Michael Flynn being under investigation and FISA surveillance.  Hence the issues with “sharing information”.
While Michael Flynn being under active FISC authorized surveillance would indicate there’s no need for unmasking of Flynn, there would be a need for unmasking of everyone else captured within the Flynn surveillance.   Hence the dozens of White House unmaskings identified by Devin Nunes in March 2017.
Additionally, Flynn being under FISA authorized surveillance still doesn’t excuse the leak -likely by Andrew McCabe- to the Washington Post about the phone contact between Flynn and Ambassador Kislyak on December 29th, 2016.
There are likely multiple FBI 302 reports on all sorts of contacts by Michael Flynn; as the FBI was conducting political surveillance under the auspices of “investigating” and updating their files.
This FBI surveillance background of Flynn would also reconcile another unusual date within the Mueller report.  An FBI 302 written on January 19th, 2017, before the Flynn interview on January 24th, 2017, about Kislyak:
Flynn was under surveillance and the FBI reports on Flynn’s surveillance did not start with the January 24, 2017, interview of Flynn – As you can see above there are FBI 302 reports that preceded it.  [h/t Techno Fog]  This aligns with Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, Mary McCord, Devin Nunes and Robert Mueller all saying Flynn was under investigation prior to the 12/29/16 Kislyak call.
If Flynn’s defense attorney Sidney Powell can get all of the material requested in her August 30th motion for evidence.  She will expose the fact that General Flynn was under a fraudulently obtained FISA Title-1 surveillance warrant.
In the 19-pages (full pdf below), Ms. Powell walks through the history of the DOJ, FBI and intelligence apparatus weaponization against Mr. Flynn and lays out the background behind everything known to have happened in 2016, 2017 through today.
From the corrupt DOJ lawyers who were working with Fusion-GPS and Chris Steele, including Mr. Weissmann, Mr. Van Grack and Ms. Zainab Ahmad; to the 2015/2016 FISA database search abuses; to the CIA and FBI operation against Flynn including Nellie Ohr; to the schemes behind the use of DOJ official Bruce Ohr; to the corrupt construct of the special counsels office selections; to the specifics within the malicious conspiracy outlined by hiding FBI interview notes of Mike Flynn,… all of it…. Is a stunning filing that many CTH readers are well prepared to understand.

    Go, Sidney, go!!!!!! We love you, we love Gen. Flynn!!!! Bring down the righteous hammer of Justice!!!

    • amjean says:

      I hope when he is cleared he is offered another high profile job in the administration
      if it makes sense to President Trump.

      • bertdilbert says:

        It would certainly change the impeachment narrative if he got his job back! Splody heads all over the place.

        • Bill Durham says:

          Do all the Bill Barr haters see what he is doing now??? This is why he stayed out of all these SC cases. They are all collapsing and doesn’t have his fingerprint on it. Team Mueller will be left with manafort, gates , skadden lawyer, pappy, and butina. So let’s setup the counter to the impeachment process
          1 sc cases collapsing
          2 sc misconduct
          3 Horowitz report
          4 Rudy g documents dump
          5 Joe digenova comes forward
          6 Barr released a few tidbits
          7 Durham update
          The Dems and lawfare walked into another trap. Lawfare has bungled the kavanaugh case, Russia gate, Mueller report, Mueller testimony, Cohen, Dean, and lewandowsi hearings. Plus Rudy got them on the POTUS non testimony. Trump is a genius at using TDS against the Dems and media. They were on a sugar high this week. And in the next 2 weeks the boomerang strikes. The Dems are rushing to hearings to deflect the bad news coming. They can’t have a kangaroo Court.

          • Donzo says:

            Bull, I emphatically concur with your views. Barr let these monsters within his ranks walk into the trap knowing full well that in their hubris and sense of impunity they would do just that. Powell indicts not only the prosecutors, but the whole cabal. I need to print and “frame” it, an irony of the highest order. We can only hope Sullivan holds them in contempt, but unless he is totally corrupt and perhaps even if he is I don’t see how he can do otherwise.

        • littleanniefannie says:

          Bert, I would like to see Flynn as CIA Director. Wonder how many resignations would be turned in on the announcement? 1/2 by confirmation!

      • Xbonesny says:

        Maybe his old/brief job as National Security Advisor…now that the Stash is out

        • dd_sc says:

          Return him to his Obama era job – Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency.

      Fellow patriots we are experiencing what the CIA does to other countries here in the USA It’s a full blown coup.

      • stripmallgrackle says:

        Sadly, none of this fits easily into simple sound bites. As we witness the IC and assorted guilty types step up the “best Lombardi defense” they can muster, expect any and all exculpatory evidence to be cordoned behind their imaginary “crime scene” tape.
        Trump will have to wait until the Senate trial begins before he can successfully fight the establishment/media complex, IMHO. No doubt, they are very aware of this, as well, and will use every tactic they can concoct to prevent that outcome.

          Or “Fake Russia Hoax Failed. Fake Ukraine Hoax to Follow. Fool Me Once, Shame on You……..”
          I don”t accept that simple sound bites cannot suffice. This is, after all, Donald J Trump, genius and Reality Show Master.

      • It sure is, Chip! I can’t understand why they’re continuing to proceed with it. They’re completely exposed & have already lost. They have no possible moves to extricate themselves. President Trump has already checkmated them.

    • Munchenfez says:

      Ms. Powell is quite the most impressive woman I recall reading about, hearing about or even just seeing. She is awesome. General Flynn, what an astute move to hire her. I wish we had lawyers of her calibre and values available to us in the UK. Now nail the bar stewards to the wall.

    • littleanniefannie says:

      One things the Democrats don’t understand (whether because a majority are either atheistic or agnostic) is that President Trump was sent by God to save the republic.

    How does that rat rosenstein sleep at night?
    Did Flynn know about Joe?????

    • Bigly says:

      It’s sad so much was crazy in January / February 2017 – removing Flynn seems to be the spark that lite the Russia probe, gave the deep state its power to encumber all thereafter.
      What would these last several years been like with Flynn’s removal?

      • Beau Geste says:

        Bigly, the “spark” was the crooked FISC which completely failed in its constitutional Duty to protect 4th Amendment rights of US Citizens. Sundance shows how crooked the FISA Warrants are. Without a crooked, “Where do we sign” FISC, none of this coup could have even started. The FISC has no shame, refuses to discipline those who withheld, misled, lied ( “lacked candor” in FISC and FBI crooked-speak) in its proceedings, and refuses to withdraw the improvidently-granted FISA Warrants it rubber-stamped. The FISC was forced to admit that over 80% of the spying under its Star Chamber auspices was illegal, yet still hides the identity of the illegally-spying “contractors”.
        Who issues FISA Warrants on the FISC Judges who aided political spying and the coup plotters?

        • littleanniefannie says:

          Without the dirt-digging on John Roberts, many of these judges likely wouldn’t have been FISC appointed.

      I’ll respond for Sundance – NO chance! He can’t he’s too valuable and too damn busy with all of the deep state corruption we have here in the United States! There has to be a Sundance is Britain somewhere? Nevertheless we’re hoping and praying for your Brexit!

          It is encouraging that Australia and Ukraine have elected Presidents who were anti corruption candidates.

        • Bubby says:

          Wilderness that is my prayer also. America used to be the world’s leader but the previous four Presidents began following the UN and the EU. Especially obama who’s sycophants bragged about leading from behind! Behind is for fools, cowards and those who hate America! Praise God for President Trump who is leading America to greatness once again!

    “The DOJ prosecutors facing Sullivan will be on egg-shells.” The ones who are left on the case (at least those who have a smidgen of conscience and who haven’t had the foresight to jump from that sinking ship) are on massive doses of anti-anxiety meds.

    • Imagine gov lawyers walking into the Judge Sullivan’s Court Room KNOWING that the OPPOSING Attorney has unraveled the DOJ’s well-laid plans and facing a Judge is who HONEST and having SWWWWEATY PALMS TO BOOT!!! To be a fly-on-the-wall!!!

    Disgusting how evil these americans are….it is no wonder Hilary “had” to win.

    • madeline says:

      One has to wonder if some of this impeachment nonsense is about the Flynn case as well. If illegal surveillance took place with Flynn and the Docs show PDT was surveilled as well it is just another aspect of the criminality involved from the previous Whitehouse.

      • wightmanfarm says:

        Rafiekian’s overturned conviction and Pelosi’s impeachment announcement happened on the exact same day. (9/24/19) I thought the same thing.

      • beach lover says:

        Not only the previous WH, but maybe shows the embedded culture of the IC for years. Just that each administration took it to new heights. Could be why so many even on the GOP side have some concern with our President. He is upsetting the applecart for all of them.

      • 55praises says:

        I am beginning to wonder whether there was a FISA on candidate Trump. We know the CIA can access POTUS phone calls, whether live or archived. It certainly does appear that an ‘all hands on deck’ signal was flared.

    • Mark L. says:

      What has happened to this once great Republic

    • Mark says:

      It was more than just this for the “Hillary had to win” crowd. Way more. This stuff we’re seeing now is just the tip of the iceberg. There’s stuff they’re trying to hide that’d nail their hides to a treasonous wall ten times or more. Over the years, they got complacent (too many corrupt people winning elections) and there’s evidentiary material all over the place. That’s why they’re all in for removing Trump no matter the cost.

  9. Pyrthroes says:

    This whole mess is an abominable tissue of lies. Assuming this plugged-in DC judge does not play along for his own inverse-selection “status anxiety” reasons, mayhap our cheerful, public-servant DOJ will fork over major damages to Flynn.
    But what of Weissman, Mueller, the whole Gangrenous Gang? Just as a recent Washington State academic-discrimination case ruled university officials personally liable for egregious transgressions against non-PCBS campus groups (among others, a Christian fellowship), so this Flynn prosecution cries out for substantive –vs. bureaucratic fol-de-rol– redress.
    Absent personal consequences for conducting malice-aforethought selective prosecutions under color of law, Gangrenous’ reptilian guttersnipes will coil to strike again.

    • DWIM says:

      I certainly can’t agree much more than I do. Apparently must make it personal and devastating for the GG individuals and their families, just like they use in their own operations. Them’s the rules. If that’s them, then play by them until the other side says ‘give’. Reminds me of some of the cold war interactions.

      • Dutchman says:

        In order to put a stop to this Weismann blatant Prosecutorial abuse, and both protect Prosecutors from being personally financially liable for honest prosecutorial errors, while reining in this blatant abuse would be ‘easy, take about 15 minutes’.
        Oh, except it,would require CONGRESS to fix it, by revising the legislation to clarify clear violations of code of ethics, DOJ policies/procedures, rules/regulations and Statutes on prosecutor conduct, such as Brady, cause Prosecutors to LOSE their immunity.
        Congress would be unlikely to do that, as many are former Prosecutors, and they have plenty of ‘notice’ there was a problem, such as the Mueller/Bolger case, and they have done nothing to address it.
        CONGRESS, once again, has the power to legislate, and is the source of the problem.

        • littleanniefannie says:

          I would think the judiciary could take care of Herr Weissmann and send a signal to any other legal types who seek to use the judiciary to accomplish their underhanded and illegal deeds. Disbarment, a lengthy prison sentence and a fine at least double what he made off the Fake Russia charade.
          I am to the point that I might give Mueller a break, provided he takes a series of physical and psychiatric tests. MRI scans of the brain will reveal dementia/Alzheimer’s as will blood tests specific to Alzheimer’s. Psychiatric evaluations will conform these diagnoses. If Mueller has Alzheimer’s/severe dementia then cut him some slack. I truly believe the only thing Mueller contributed to the Special Counsel was his name!

    • GB Bari says:

      Everyone here likely agrees with your implorations for justice.
      We have collectively been noting the consistent failure of this government to redress the crimes committed by multiple actors within the DOJ, FBI, State Dept., Congress and CIA.
      At most, those who have been identified as having broken rules, laws, even Constitutional rights of others, have been given an early retirement from their careers, and sent packing along with their accumulated fortunes and fat pensions.
      No arrests, no indictments, no prosecutions. No sentences.
      Some punishment, some justice.
      Exacerbating the frustration of those who understand the facts, relatively few Americans are fully cognizant of the true depth and breadth of the travesties committed by the coup conspirators. There is a dearth of public calls to pursue these crimes and heal the open festering wound this is leaving.
      I’m beginning to believe that the only solution we have to move this in the direction of justice will be starting and continuing a national campaign of protests and demonstrations in support of the President and calling for the exposure of seditious crimes by the coup conspirators along with the corrupt Congress members who have deliberately looked away or even actively assisted and enabled this fraud to continue.

        To imagine that our opposition is unprepared to respond to Ms Powell’s filing with “plausible” reasons/explanations/excuses is naive and unwitting.

Ms. Powell will have to literally corner them allowing NO avenue for escape.

        • Dutchman says:

          Will Hunt;
          Actually, I see it differently. Previous experience over quite a while, to me indicates the,weismann are stupid, and behave like 1st year law,students, who got thrown out for cheating on their exams, while selling drugs out of their dorm rooms,…..and haven’t changed a bit.
          Their strategies are always pushing the envelope, stretching it all out of shape, and it invariably snaps back into shape, tossing them out of,court, on their ass.
          However, like a drunk tossed from a,salloon in the old west, they get up, dust themselves off, and head,right back in to see just how much they can stretch and distort the law, and how many lives they can ruin.
          They are stupid, callous, venal and cowardly, and for Lawfare to be up against S.Powell is like the a High school J.V. Basketball team going against the Harlem Globetrotters.
          She is eviscerating them, and she is doing it patiently, like a surgeon turned torturer, who knows just where to cut, how and when.
          This also MAY shed some light on Flynns earlier defence team. Some have wondered if they were playing for the other side,…but if their client made the dacision not to fight (and to plead) in order to protect jr., they have to respect his wishes,…just sayin.

          • FPCHmom says:

            They were probably being surveilled as well because of they contact with Flynn. Who knows what information the prosecutors knew about them and Flynn’s legal strategy and what they did with that information.
            It is all so corrupt.

        • GB Bari says:

          In addition to Dutchman’s observations, it should be noted that the government’s prosecution team has now been severely admonished several times by judges who have seen through the unethical tactics used against several defendants.
          The Weismann-Van Grack strategy of extortion and threats against defendants and their families in order to extract false confessions against the President has been pretty much discredited and the corrupt lawyers have few options left to convince judges that there is any validity to the prosecutions.

    If Flynn FISA exists, it is more dirty and false then Carter Page’s. So why IG and everybody else are only talking about Carter Page

    • Austin Holdout says:

      The DOJ has not declassified the Flynn FISA application and no one has admitted it exists. Thanks Sundance for pulling these seemingly random facts together to demonstrate there was a Flynn FISA warrant.

      • The Boss says:

        We don’t know if this FISA was included in President Trump’s blanket declassification of “everything” so AG Barr or his designee could conduct criminal probes. I’d guess is was.

        • Dutchman says:

          Its not clear to me, why option #3 isn’t viable; that their survellance of Flynn was totally ‘off the books’, i.e. there,IS no Fisa.
          After all, with Carter Page, they,WANTED it ‘official’ as the,whole purpose was to get the unofficial dosdier into official channels.
          The survellance of Flynn goes back to at least 2014, (pre-Trump) and originally seems to have started as a way to get ‘dirt’on Flynn to disctedit him.
          Like the “politicisation” survellance going on since 2012, they may have been looking to compromise him, threaten him to ‘turn’ him.
          If they had to, they could use “parallel construction to prosecute, for anything they found.
          Maybe this is,why no one has aknowledged he was surveilled under a FISA warrant; cause he WASN’T?
          Which would be far worse for Prosecution. However, if he WAS under a warrant, it makes the lack of Miranda warning by Stroxz and Pietnka GLARING, instead of murky.

          • bessie2003 says:

            To me the phrase in Rice’s memo “by the book” is not only their justification and cover their ass memo, but a reminder to their fellow cabal members to rely on that “we did what we did by the book” as their defense for when this all gets exposed and individual accountability for their acts begin to happen. So it makes sense that there was a FISA warrant in place, otherwise they wouldn’t be able to use that as both justification and defense.

            • Dutchman says:

              Again, that applies to all things “Trump”, and the soft coup.
              But, I THINK they were surveilling Gen. Flynn since long before “Trump” declared.
              Stroxz or McCabe had it ‘in’ for him, because of some harrasment case where they crossed horns.
              The kind of thing where they may have not bothered, BACK THEN.. Anyway, we have no independent confirmation they DID have a FISA on Flynn, if I’m understanding correctly….and nobody seems to want to talk about it,…so I’m wondering.
              After all, all those FBI Contractor searches uncovered in the Judge Colyers report, were on American citisens, and done without any FISA warrant, as I understand it.
              So, I’m wondering,….

              • bessie2003 says:

                Agree.
                Until all is over, said and done, will these blanks be filled in. I’m just thankful for the work and posts of Sundance and all the comments made here that we are even aware of the rough outlines of what has gone on.

                • Dutchman says:

                  Its like a huge iceberg. Gen public sees less than 10%, because Sundance has special devices, he helps os to see,….? Maybe 20%?
                  And we may NEVER KNOW it all.
                  Sessions, for instance. Rat from the beginning, compromised, buffalo’d?
                  Unless he tells, we may well never know “What was UP with that?”
                  And, unless the actives are threatened with serious time, we may never see justice for the peole who ordered it.

    • cboldt says:

      In defense of Flynn’s first lawyers, they are insiders in a corrupt justice system that gives every benefit to the prosecution except “presumption of innocence.” Government gets “presumption of truth” in every move they make.
      Righteous operation of this system depends on ethical prosecution and ethical judges. On top of that, it is near impossible to get rid of the bad ones. See Weissmann’s persistence, and his acolytes.
      Not a problem in just Fed courts. See Smollett case and Waco bikers cases.
      Now that Mueller has shot his wad, Team Flynn can go on offense. It would have been more difficult before that, especially with Team Mueller holding a sword over Flynn, Jr.’s neck.

  16. Ed neal says:

    This whole sketchy business was about the deep state and the military industrial complex trying to use Ukraine as their piggy bank. After the Soviet Union fell, there was internal disputes inside Ukraine about whether to be economically aligned with Russia or the eu and corrupt oligarchs were taking over formerly state owned industries? Obamas crew saw an opportunity and interfered in the elections in Ukraine, with victoria Nuland passing out cookies in Kiev to the anti Russian protestors. But the people elected the pro Russia candidate anyway. So nuland and company armed the dissidents and violently overthrew the duly elected government, claiming that the election was corrupt. Sound familiar? Any election they lose is corrupt. Clearly, this was all about money and surely bidens kid was not the only american profiting from the corrupt government the us backed in Kiev. Along comes donald trump, naively talking about improving relations with Russia. We’ll the deep state can’t have that. The Ukrainian initiative falls apart without the Russian bogey man. So they try to paint trump and his associates as traitors in order to keep their scam going. The mueller initiative fails and trump is pissed so now he wants to investigate who was behind all this treasonous activity. Boy did he touch a nerve! They can’t allow this investigation to go forward because it will expose the corrupt us entities that were behind this Ukraine scam and how they are profiting from it. Ask yourself this question, how is it that the Ukraine was in need of the one billion loan guarantee that Biden was withholding a few years ago and yet now they are buying millions in missile technology from the us? Get it? It is a big money circle, with the us sending our money to the Ukraine, so that they can send it right back to our defense contractors. Hope you didn’t think this was all about democracy and the American way. They need to eliminate trump so they can get back to business as usual.

    • Proud American from Texas says:

      One clue may be that Flynn had spoken to DIA folks before going to Russia AND debriefed them when he returned. Sounds similar to Carter Page being an undercover informant for FBI against the Russians. He worked with the FBI, yet they called him an agent of a foreign country. Flynn, same, same.

    • Bogeyfree says:

      Just look at the results from when Adm. Rodgers conducted just a 6 month audit.

      Barr IMO should have conducted a second audit going all the way back to 2012. Then investigate the Hammer program for its information gathering from 2009-2012.
      Remember the spying or information gathering was a critical tool to the Shake Down Syndicate. It gave them power, influence, control and $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ GLOBALLY.
      Dirt is powerful and in the wrong hands, is why so many have complied, conformed allowing the Shake Down Syndicate to become a network of thousands upon thousands.
      IMO it’s why so many just sit on their hands vs rising up and speaking up to support truth and justice.
      Find the database and IMO it would expose and explain everything.

    Sidney quoted from another case,
     “The  prosecutor is not just another advocate. Rather, he or she represents “a sovereignty whose obligation to govern impartially is as compelling as its obligation to govern at all,” and he or she shares its “interest…not that it shall win a case, but that justice shall be done.”  Berger v. United States, 295 U.S. 78, 88 (1935)).”
    This put everything into focus, for me. (TY Sidney) I felt cold cold anger, thinking about how far off the rails those rats went. But, I have always said that you are a great teacher. This brief was not only brilliant, it was understandable.

      • GB Bari says:

        Every profession has developed a lexicon over time that best describes the concepts and ideas used in the practice of that profession.
        “Legalese” is a style of writing (or speaking) that heavily utilizes the abstruse technical vocabulary of the law, to the point where a document (or speech) may be incomprehensible to people other than lawyers, law professionals and law administrators.
        Besides a sprinkling of Latin terms, “Legalese” usually includes an abundance of run-on sentences because the lawyers want to keep a series of directly-related thoughts linked together to avoid misinterpretation.

  22. Christopher Johnson says:

    I’m thinking we need a malicious prosecution law. Something to make a prosecutor think twice before railroading someone to advance their career… penalties to include permanent loss of law license, personal asset forfeiture to the falsely accused to help make them whole (if they have to declare bankruptcy… good) and a prison term equal to the one they were seeking to inflict on the falsely accused (you kept them in solitary for two years and were seeking life in prison for an innocent man while withholding exculpatory evidence? Guess what the rest of your life looks like?).
    The penalties need to be absolutely severe enough to make the potential benefits of career advancement due to abuse pale in comparison to the penalties if it’s discovered (and give defense attorneys an incentive to try to doscover it).

    • Toenail says:

      I have thought that this is one area where Sharia Law has some advantages over our system. Under sharia law the penalty for false accusations is very stiff. Somewhere along the line you are discussing but probably more severe. My comment here is in no way a plug for the harshness of Sharia or any suggestion that the more severe law is actually applied equally. Much of the problems with the American form of law is in the unequal application of the letter of the law. I believe there was an intent in the development that our law would have some latitude in application. I do not attempt to judge whether leaving the law with latitude is good or is intended to let the more powerful off the hook.

  23. Steve in MT says:

    As McCabe said: “First we fuck Flynn and then we fuck Trump.” An attempted coup just because Flynn supported a woman who had been sexually harassed. This stuff is frightening.

  24. Frank says:

    There’s a lot of ya-ya back and forth, and yes, the DOJ is corrupt to the point of belial worthlessness. But since President Trump was elected, not a single solitary anti-American collaborator has been hauled off to prison for sedition or hanged for treason. Not a single one.
    I will vote for Trump in 2020, and I’ll vote for pro-Trump candidates to help him. But if we don’t address the corruption directly, it won’t just go away on its own. After Trump is gone, the cancer will grow wildly, trying to make up for lost time. And then what?

      If Bill trained Hillary, he sure didn’t train her in how to generate that cross-over appeal in the electorate, enough that it got him elected to two terms
      Instead of cross-over appeal, half the electorate took one look at Hillary and outright feared her
      And rightly so
      Stalin-in-a-pantsuit … they could see it

      • GB Bari says:

        I thought Clinton was disingenuous and too far left for me to ever support him. But if we take an objective look at #42’s eight years, you’ll find Cigar Bill showed a lot more deference to conservative ideals than any DemonRAT since, and FAR more than his beyotch wife. When Newt Gingrich led the ‘94 House, he got far better treatment from Clinton than any Republican ever received under Ozero (“elections have consequences”).

    • cjzak says:

      Only quibble for me is Hillary being trained by Billy. She zeroed in on him in college as the potential work horse that would carry her to the highest levels of political power in America. She’s the nasty brains behind the schemes, imo. Marry his good ol boy charms and ambitions to her mad lust for power and the whole evil entity of Bill and Hil was born.
      Bad news is she has her own power base now and is still working her evil. She doesn’t really need him for anything anymore. She just hasn’t gotten quite to her goal as of yet—first woman President of the USA. Pretty sure from signals being given lately that she just might want to try again. I never thought she would, but I’m beginning to think I was very wrong about that.

    Am only partly through reading this, and will finish, literally stopped to take my blood pressure once realizing after reading the snippet below the video of Clapper/Yates’ testimony to Graham, in reading the text messages,
    it is becoming apparent that the outgoing administration was very angry at Gen. Flynn for having had conversation with the Russian counterpart which caused the Russians to NOT retaliate by the moves of then President Obama –
    in other words, it is becoming apparent that the outgoing Administration was purposely trying to create world war-like tensions between the Russian government and the incoming Administration. The actions by Gen. Flynn broke their plans and for that he must pay.
    After the blood pressure comes down will finish reading. And still these traitors are pushing the impeachment narrative since all their other plans have come to naught.
    I do appreciate your warning before reading, i.e. – will make one’s blood boil. That’s an understatement!

    • Beau Geste says:

      I think you are right. obama was already angry at General Flynn for opposing syrian mischief. The obama schemers hated General Flynn because he was not part of their evil cabal. Your hypothesis makes a lot of sense.

  40. MLK says:

    In an earlier posting you provided a breakdown of the factions (e.g. Obama; Clinton). A good starting point but, as I’m sure you know better than anyone, just that, an initial breakdown.
    As I’ve mentioned previously, the Flynn entrapment struck me beginning early on as evidencing high level disagreement among the conspirators behind the curtain.
    As we’ve learned now in several instances — and there are likely more — the moving party loaded the gun but hid it internally in draft form. Sounds rather like the spurious allegation currently about the White House “burying” the POTUS’s phone calls on a highly secure server, no?
    In any event, McCabe had a bureaucratic warring history with Flynn that led him (McCabe) to go off the DOJ conspirator farm. The FBI tail wagging the DOJ NSD dog such as it were. He did the same thing right after Comey was fired, rather obvisouly stepping on Rosenstein’s toes, forcing his hand by immediately opening a criminal investigation of the POTUS.
    Think about it, in both instances McCabe had, without authorization, upped the stakes enormously.
    Needless to say, both of these apparently McCabe orchestrated gambits caused the malefactors writ large no end of grief, complicating, if not outright queering, any sort of negotiated (behind the curtain) resolution.
    Now, with hindsight, is it even a close call whether the conspirators made the right move forcing No Profile In Courage (and none too bright) Sessions’s recusal?! Like with Flynn (in contrast a courageous man), so much the better to have waited before executing their coup.
    I distinctly remember that when Mueller was first appointed Special Counsel, there was a renewed narrative-weaving burst that he was going to “Drain The Swamp” per the POTUS’s insistence by prosecuting some FARA violations (lobbying on behalf of foreign governments) on a bipartisan basis. While a counterfactual in extremis, it seems to me that was the plan to put this thing to bed after Trump took the oath.
    In other words, McCabe bit their rhythm, as the kids say. But for his having done so at both key inflection points they would have remained in positions throughout the National Security State to bring down Trump at the right time. Instead, as I’ve explained previously, what they did was consolidate the Republican Party base (and more) behind the duly-elected president, which destroyed the establishment Republican traitors in Congress they needed when the time came to force Trump to either resign or face certain removal.
    Barr released a statement through a spokesman that he was “surprised and angry” that the POTUS mentioned him in the same context as Giuliani. From Barr’s perspective this gave the Democrats/Malefactors an opening to attack him and whatever resolution he and Durham were going to effect. But, it seems to me, the POTUS, OPENLY, its important to add, was holding Barr/Durham’s feet to the fire — holding Barr to his promise to the POTUS to genuinely get to the bottom of the 2016 criminal conspiracy against him and expose it publicly.
    You’ll note that, once again, the Democrats and their Allied Media, along with anyone associated with or inhabiting the mindset of the bureaucracy, emanate the Hapless Trump narrative. He just keeps getting himself into trouble like Dennis The Menace! Who in the world do they think is buying this nonsense any longer?!
    He is a real POTUS. Not a Figurehead/Pitchman for the Permanent Government, as his predecessors increasingly were. They’re just going to have to deal with it. In the meantime, they’re destroying the Democrat Party.

    • Sharpshorts says:

      MLK : “evidencing high level disagreement among the conspirators”
      A fair assessment IMO, each conspirator wants to be number 1.
      The recent squabble amongst the lower ranks re:
      “I initiated the impeachment idea first!” is an addition example of that disagreement.

      • MLK says:

        It’s an enduring feature of collaboration/conspiracy within and among entities, whether criminal in objective or not.
        It’s been palpable from the beginning of this saga that McCabe loathed Comey, and was jockeying to replace him when Hillary became president. I have to say, I can appreciate McCabe’s sentiment, Comey is an archetype of too smart by half bureaucratic operator. Not someone who commands and rewards loyalty.
        I forgot to mention McCabe’s initial self-interested playing it by ear — leaking about Weiner’s emails. Let’s just say the guy was a big problem for the conspirators and even the clean-up crew from the get-go.
        Not for nothing did Lisa Page in her Congressional testimony mention the Chain of Command nature of FBI/DOJ. Sure, this was self-protective on her part but in my view she was signaling something by implication about McCabe vis-à-vis what was supposed to be his boss Comey.

        • Beau Geste says:

          If you are correct that McCabe is the loose cannon on the deck, why dis the DOJ refuse to prosecute what is clear lying and leaking, which the crooked DOJ would use to try to put an ordinary person such as Martha Stewart, Scooter Libby, General Flynn… in jail?
          just my humble opinion: hillary is running the russia=>impeach operation. Mccabe is hillary’s pawn and does what the clinton-cabal (built into the government, Courts, and SES over time since slickwilly’s first “whistleblower” in the oval office), says.

          • MLK says:

            you’re quite right, McCabe belongs to the Clintons. He stupidly took the 675K from McAuliffe — who, by the way, destroyed his 2020 presidential ambitions in the process.
            But, remember, within the Administrative State generally, and the institution of FBI/DOJ specifically, McCabe wasn’t free to freelance (on behalf of the Clintons) without regard to the Chain of Command in a manner detrimental to these other interests. By doing so he was wholly reliant on Hillary winning.
            This is why Comey hung him out to dry publicly on Flynn (“I didn’t think Flynn lied”). Look at it from Comey’s perspective. McCabe was once again swinging at the fences, abusing Comey’s studied role of playing ignorant after having already gotten burned by the same in the Weiner laptop fiasco.
            To answer you other question, McCabe is in a position to harm others (see e.g. Rosenstein wearing a wire), which explains why the other shoe hasn’t dropped on him. Whether he goes to prison or is given a slap on the wrist, I suspect all concerned would prefer it to occur per mutual arrangement via the campaign violation associated with his wife. I’m sure the Clintons would toss Mcauliffe under the bus as a sweetener to all concerned.

            • Beau Geste says:

              McCabe has implied he will take down others if he is taken down. So, if AG Barr and Durham do not prosecute him for very clear, leaking and “lack of candor under oath” (perjury, and separate violation of 18 USC 1001 used by DOJ to bludgeon people they do not like but lack proof to oppress), it will be clear that BARR-Durham are protecting the swamp.
              McCabe is savvy enough to leave a “dead man’s switch” trove of evidence in case he is “Seth Riched”.

  41. Zorro says:

    I suspect that the case will be dismissed without the defense team getting any of the requested documents,
    I wish Flynn could be restored to his old position but would be hounded with cries of using it for “political persecution”.

    • MLK says:

      Behind the curtain, within the mind of the Administrative State, Flynn committed a violation when he stuck his nose into that lady FBI Agent’s complaint (against McCabe).
      In essence, McCabe was delivering payback when he took the new National Security Adviser down. But, not to put to0 fine a point on it, that was a decision that was way above McCabe’s pay grade, particularly in the glaringly obvious broader context and objective.
      Thus, according to the unwritten and hidden from us rules of the Administrative State, both Flynn and McCabe’s travails are paired with each other. Containing the Flynn fiasco, which necessitated indicting him and threatening his son, and then this other prosecution of his business partner, is why McCabe has had the wood put to him.

    God Bless Sydney Powell and may He grant her and Gen Flynn strength to continue this fight and prevail. The soul of our Nation is at stake.

  43. Ausonius says:

    Skimming through the comments here, I am reminded of the importance – the ever-growing importance – of the concept of Amorality.
    We, being moral thinkers, find such people to be immoral. But moral thinking is not involved in their decisions. They are indifferent to the concept. What matters to them is the question: “Does my action promote the agenda of Global Communism/Socialism and increase my position?
    “Good vs. Evil” does not enter their minds: they have excluded such thoughts from their deliberately warped consciences.
    Keep that in mind, as you analyze their actions. It will explain the coldness that you can sense in their faces and way of speaking.

    • GB Bari says:

      What you are asserting is that “they” (assume you refer to the Leftwing Establishment, the Globalists, the DemonRATs, the Uniparty RepubliCONs, etc.) operate entirely from within an amoral position, so the morality of their decisions and tactics is never considered.

  44. Have Gun Will Travel says:

    Mike Flynn is a good man and an American Patriot who dedicated his life to faithfully serving and defending our country. The original surveillance against him is, like that of others, politically based – stemming from his time as the DIA Director and his refuting obama’s dismissal of ISIS and the Islamic extremist threat at large. It carried over into high gear once he became a vocal supporter of then Candidate Trump. It in part began with a similar set-up operation involving Stefan Halper in England that formed part of the basis to begin the surveillance (claims to CIA that Mike Flynn was too close to a former female Russian national at a group dinner). Similarly to the coup attempt against the President, Brennan/CIA’s hand was behind it (and any surprise that the current, manufactured, fake whistleblower is from CIA?).
    It is good to see that justice may have a chance of prevailing in LTG Flynn’s political persecution.
    It was always clear that he took the guilty plea under threat of malicious prosecution of his son – and this confirms it for the world. May he be vindicated soon, and may this act of real justice serve to knock down one more leg of the ongoing corrupt coup and impeachment conspiracies.

  45. Bogeyfree says:

    They must dig deeper on the FISA abuse and go back to 2012 to show the long term pattern of these non compliant searches and ask:
    Why?
    Who was spied upon and how frequent?
    What did they search for?
    Who were the contractors?
    Who allowed the contractors access?
    Then go back to the Hammer program back in 2009-2012. Look at the 47 hard drives turned in by Dennis Montgomery.
    Put these two initiatives together and you have the most powerful database in the world. Able to sway people, decisions, rulings and even countries without firing a shot.
    It would allow unlimited access to power influence, control and $$$$$$$$$$
    And because the database has dirt on everyone who is anybody, they instantly become loyal members of the Shake Down Syndicate (SDS) or be trampled and exposed.
    Now using mid level people, groups and “associations” who are now team members of the SDS, it is easy to apply leverage in order to hide, distract, attack, smear, frame and intimidate at will.
    As as part of the network there is also the “hourly employees” who are the stand ins, the groupies, the lighting, the noise and the paper pushers or the spinners who propagate everything on a moments notice, as they too are leveraged and easily influenced.
    As you can see the SDS is deep and wide and very organized.
    The game is about using this leverage to conduct the Shake Down in order to get the cheese!
    I actually think Barr might on to this and just may be seeing THIS as the real predicate.

  46. arze says:

    Judge Trenga admits he failed to properly instruct the jury. Trenga corrected his mistake — after the jury had convicted Gen. Flynn’s business partner.
    That is why he vacated the judgement against Gen. Flynn’s business partner. He took 39 pages to do that.
    The 39 page opinion is attached to Attorney Powell’s Sept. 30 filing — in which more evidence that Rosenstein approved the scope memo authorizing Mueller to target the general’s son.
    Perhaps of minor note: transcripts of the first conference in June – after Powell took over as Flynn’s attorney — with the Judge Sullivan, show him acknowledging he had been given as a gift from Powell her book, that demonstrates Brady violations galore in government’s wrongful treatment of Sen. Ted Stevens.
    Sullivan said he’d only read the part of “LICENSED TO LIE: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice,” directly involving him and that he planned to read the entire book someday.
    The minor note is, at this June 24 Status Conference, he offered to recuse himself, if the DOJ attorneys prosecuting the case against Flynn felt that would be apropos – the DOJ attorneys raised no objections.
    They were of course Brandon Lang Van Grack, Assistant, U.S. Attorney, U.S. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Special Counsel’s Office; and Deborah A. Curtis, Assistant U.S. Attorney, U.S. ATTORNEY’S OFFICE FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. Curtis mysteriously departed from the DOJ just days ago and is off the case.
    Sullivan, in the status conference, began with acknowledgment of the Powell book.
    “If anyone has any problems with that, speak now, please.”
    In this June 24 status conference Sullivan told the lawyers, in response to Powell’s request for need to see classified information: “we do have a classified information security officer present today.”
    The CIO was tasked with coordinating with DOJ and defense lawyers Powell’s request for Brady material that is classified.
    Sullivan stated: “I’m going to leave it up to defense counsel, government’s counsel, and our classified information security officer to determine next steps, and if the Court needs to get involved, the Court will get involved.”
    And this is where Brady now stands.

  47. Jerry Joe says:

    Reading this article may explain perhaps, some of the continous onslaught for Potus’ tax returns. Always seemingly strange about Carter Page following in interview is his reluctance to pursue, with counsel, his legal claims as outlined Joe DiGenova. Perhaps a review of his tax returns would defeat those claims? It’s been revealed he’s been on the ‘payroll’ in the past… Potus’ challenges to the constant petty, speculative and irrelevant quest to make them public keep further inquiry into one Carter Page at bay.
    Thinking out loud.

  48. mtk says:

    Not to distract from Flynn good news. The only thing I learnt here was the, “Putting of the lipstick on the pig”.
    There was? an on going DOJ investigation of the Podesta Group and it has been dropped.
    Is the like the in same investigative vein the DOJ applied to HRC emails. Read the link article, love the part “All we(Tony) did was in good faith and on the advice of out side consul.” On the advice, of outside… Rich, very rich.
    Is that like… the same circular legal network that all runs through HRC in one way or another.
    So, lets get this right Manafort is sitting in jail, yet whatever Tony was doing needed Manafort to pay him under the table through shell companies to the tune of 2million bucks. Sounds like whatever they where doing was working the Ukrainians from both sides, and lets not forget, Tony walked away with 60 million or more in energy sector shares of a Russian linked consortium.
    Yup, I am getting all warm and fuzzy with taking up the bag pipes.
    Maybe we should all start looking at the Sovereign Person’s Argument and start arguing two tiered justice, means a lost in Faith in the Rule of Law, with no faith, no jurisdiction, no jurisdiction means no governance, no governance means I need to be my own Sovereign.

  50. chojun says:

    Sundance I believe you missed an important point of the recent filing:
    https://twitter.com/Techno_Fog/status/1178802815243735040
    Part of Brandon Van Grack’s plea agreement with Flynn was to get Fynn to lie about knowingly filing a false FARA registration. Van Grack then apparently deleted this.
    This seems like misconduct to me, or at least highly unethical.
    I think Sullivan is going to see this and at least vacate the plea or at worst (for the prosecution) toss the case.

    • Beau Geste says:

      Will they get disbarred? No, the DOJ liars never get disbarred. Will their misbehavior. by officially sanctioned, so they are subject to personal liability for illegal acts and deprivation of civil rights under color of law? No. The Courts protect their lying.
      Without question, the FISC was ethically bound to immediately discipline the DOJ perpetrators of of the false, withheld and misleading FISA applications, and to withdraw ALL improvidently-issued FISA Warrants. Any honest Federal Court has an obligation to do this in “ordinary”, open-court proceedings in which both parties are represented. Because the “defendant US Citizens are NOT REPRESENTED in the super-duper-secret FISA Court, there is an extreme Constitutional duty to protect the honesty of proceedings before the Court.
      The FISC has spectacularly failed its Constitutional duty, by tolerating DOJ misbehavior, withholding, and lying without discipline of the perprtrators and withdrawal of the purloined Warrants. The Warrants should be withdrawn, even after they “expired”, because they were falsely obtained, and shoild not be used to “justify” previous illegal spying.
      Chief Justice Roberts (who is responsible for the FISC judges) should replace them all with judges who respect Constitutional Obligations of the judicial Branch, and protect honesty in court proceedings. Fat chance…….

    Mr. Lovinger had been an analyst at the Pentagon for more than ten years when he was detailed to the White House at then-National Security Advisor Flynn’s request. Mr. Lovinger voiced concerns internally regarding the Pentagon’s Office of Net Assessment for prioritizing academic reports (one of which was written by Stefan Halper) at the expense of real threat assessments. He was recalled to the Pentagon, accused of mishandling sensitive information, stripped of his security clearance, and suspended. As it turned out, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service conducted a thorough examination of his electronic devices, but “[a]gents found no evidence he leaked to the press, as charged, or that he was a counterintelligence risk.”

        Trump-supporting Pentagon analyst stripped of security clearance loses appeal
        Adam Lovinger, the Trump-supporting Pentagon analyst stripped of his security clearance, has lost his appeal.
        A Defense Department administrative judge denied his request, finding after a closed-hearing that he mishandled secrets. The Personnel Security Appeal Board agreed in a final decision.
        Mr. Lovinger, who remains suspended without pay, has one last shot.
        He has filed a whistleblower reprisal complaint with the Defense Department inspector general against his then-boss, James Baker, Director of the Office of Net Assessment (ONA). If the IG concludes he was a victim, then the secretary of defense would reinstate his security clearance.
        “As it turns out, one of the two contractors Mr. Lovinger explicitly warned his ONA superiors about misusing in 2016 was none other than Mr. Halper,” his attorney, Sean Bigley, wrote in an ethics complaint last year. It called the contracts “cronyism and corruption.”

          Hillary and Bill, the Bush family, and Bernie and Liz Warren are all involved in the scam to some degree or other.

    I hope people appreciate how invasive and what a Title-I counter-intelligence warrant authorizes. This isn’t just phone calls and emails people. This is lasers and room audio (bugs in walls, cars, planes, the White House?, etc). And further, since you are purporting to be tracking a spy of a foreign power, (assumes tradecraft, like dead drops, NOCs, etc) this include every person and everything the target comes into contact. This is everyone associated with the campaign and more.

    • Flynn was a human walking wiretap!

      • trapper says:

        Yes! And so was Carter Page. Walking microphones. And since the warrant allows searches of everything NSA had already routinely scooped up on everyone, it covers up and makes legitimate all illegal searches and info obtained from them that they already had. That’s why Mueller issued so many regular search warrants, to put the stamp of legitimacy on all the materials he already had but that were illegally obtained by the coup crew. This is nothing new. Criminal defense lawyers have been complaining about this cheating for decades, and Mueller was an old cheat from way back.

      And meanwhile, “spies of another foreign power”, China, have been stealing our military and industrial secrets with impunity for decades. It almost makes you wonder if the people who are supposed to stop this sort of thing are being paid to let it happen, and instead are turning their power against anything that would derail their gravy train.

    Since “Flynn was under FISC authorized active surveillance” then does this not mean that Flynn’s lawyers and even the judges Judge Sullivan and Anthony J Trenga involved were also under surveillance?
    Then the government prosecutors were knowingly violating Flynn’s rights? I believe its called the “Color of Law”. If so, then little wonder that the prosecutors were hiding documents requested.

It’s beyond sickening that our government prosecutors have such incredible powers of abuse. When I hear people like this referred to as “public servant” I throw up in my mouth.

    • OmegaManBlue says:

      The thing is this isn’t anything new. To some of us this isn’t a political issue. Prosecutors have been doing these type of things for years. And when they are caught nothing really ever happens to them. We get a little outrage when it happens then everyone moves on.

      • CharterOakie says:

        Hopefully, when more (if not all) of the Swamp is drained, a BIG part of that draining will be the disbarment and imprisonment of lawyers, closure of their firms, and bankrupting of the partners. The Swamp, after all, is overwhelmingly former or currently practicing lawyers.

    Dutchman made an awesome point earlier in this thread.
    When the FBI agents called up Flynn to ambush him, they knew there was a FISA warrant on him. They did not Mirandize him or even warn him he was a suspect.
    How can the same agents who are getting FISA Surveillance information on someone be the same ones who conduct a criminal investigation and not even afford him Miranda protection or warn him he is under criminal investigation?
    That is absolutely criminal behavior by the investigators. They can listen to anything he and his lawyers say under the FISA Warrant, then turn around use that information in, or as a roadmap, in a criminal investigation?

          • CharterOakie says:

            True. My parents-in-law, in their eighties, life-long Republican voters and religious Rush listeners throughout the ‘90s, fell for the MSM packaging of Obama and voted for him.

              • CharterOakie says:

                It’s all a question of what information a person takes in and assimilates. For the WWII generation, such as my now-deceased parents-in-law, TV news was generally trusted. They were computer illiterate, feeble, and not able to do much other than sit in a chair and be fed the MSM propaganda. Further, the impugning of the GWB presidency was non-stop. And further still, there was apparently a desire to prove to themselves that they were not “ray-cist” by voting for the slickly packaged pretender.

      One of the sub-dynamics here is a death match between Obama and Clinton camps to be sure that if anyone goes down, it’s the other. They have always hated each other. He is not innocent. He may have smugly tried to stay a few steps removed. But loosely speaking, I look at it this way: graft, extortion, human trafficking and illegal arms dealing lead straight to Clinton; illegal surveillance and other IC malfeasance and manipulations lead straight to Obama, which puts him squarely on the hook for what that malfeasance was in service to (i.e., the Clinton thread), so in reality, each are on the hook for both. They’re co-implicated, even if they directly ran different angles.

  70. Bogeyfree says:

    I’m thinking Barr may be on to what could be the real predicate. Let’s call it The Shake Down Syndicate.
    Think of this as a global corporation with thousands of employees, where their is a CEO and many senior executives who develop and initiate the Shake Down objectives while enjoying the majority share of the power and cheese.
    Then there are the mid level managers who are leveraged and feed the next largest share of cheese and are the muscle, the travelers, the gatherers, the distractors and the fixers, who do most of the cover, grunt and distraction work. But once they get feed they are locked into the organization forever even post retirement.
    The mid level managers provide the smoke or camouflage and distractions to keep people like PT and Barr from looking/digging into Global Shake Downs. In essence they protect the queen bees.
    Then you have the hourly employees who are the stand ins, the groupies, the lighting, the noise and the paper pushers or the spinners who propagate everything on a moments notice, as they are easily influenced, become very loyal and also get hooked on token pieces of the cheese.
    And bottom line no one ever leaves or speaks about the Syndicate out of fear and exposure.
    This is all driven by obsessed leverage. (Think massive FISA abuse and the Hammer program and just how big that database must be today)
    Leverage is a powerful tool to get power, influence, control and stuff you want such as $$$$$$$$
    I’m thinking Barr figured this out and jumped over all the noise, distractions and went looking for what the real predicate was that would drive so many to an all out frenzy state.
    And IMO he is beginning to see a pattern across the globe and key players that suggests the Shake Down Syndicate is real and has been operating for years?
    The next 2-3 weeks will tell A lot IMO.

  72. When one Federal judge throws out a conviction, as he did, then I’m quite sure that other Mueller-bred cases will be thrown out also, including the one against Flynn.
    This is the downside, and the downfall, of the so-called “Lawfare” tactics, which seek to use the law as a weapon of politics and without concern for what it does to innocent people’s lives. They are using the law as an instrument of extortion. But they can’t stand up to lawyers like Sydney and Rudy, nor to determined people like Trump. The legal theories which they advance do not hold water. Bill Barr carefully detailed what they were up to before he became AG, then officially rejected them after he did.

    • cheering4america says:

      The one case was still in litigation; General Flynn had not only already entered a plea of guilty, but stuck to it when hard-pressed in court, averring that he had not made the plea under duress (which obviously he was, and obviously he had to state that he wasn’t).
      I hope that this travesty can still be unraveled, but I wish this had all come to light BEFORE he entered his plea.
      Can’t help but think that the Mueller small coup group must be wishing that they had agreed to final sentencing long before Sidney Powell entered on the General’s behalf and all of this came to light.

      • Newhere says:

        An elephant in the room — one which Sidney so far hasn’t touched — is that Flynn may have been mis-served by former counsel. You don’t get a redo solely for switching lawyers. She may be able to avoid throwing Covington under the bus. But from DOJ’s filing today, the point you’re making features prominently: Flynn *denied* any duress when given the chance, issued a plea he hasn’t renounced, and nothing has changed here except his lawyer. Of course there’s more context. So far, Sidney’s argument is quite subtle, and may need to shift to address this apparent inconsistency more directly. Her argument (broadly speaking) is two-fold: (1) that gov misconduct is so egregious, it doesn’t matter that Flynn has in the past accepted a plea and statements averse to his interests, because the DOJ conduct warrants dismissal as a remedy and (2) ultimately, it’s the *court’s* order that prevails, which is a tacit way of saying that it doesn’t matter if Flynn took a plea, waived rights or denied duress, because the DOJ’s obligation to produce Brady evidence and refrain from egregious conduct issues from the law and the court and the judge should look at it separately, because if misconduct were present, THAT would explain and obviate Flynn’s admissions.
        I had thought the government would drop the case, because Sidney Powell is correct on the merits, and forcing the DOJ’s hand could be devastating for the Small Group narrative. Their reply brief exploits Powell’s finesse in seeking first a dismissal, rather than withdrawing the plea and/or throwing prior counsel under the bus to explain why Flynn’s defense didn’t identify these issues in prior opportunities.
        Powell never has ruled out withdrawing the plea, so it’s possible she’ll do that. However, her the key predicate to her argument is one that Judge Sullivan expressly agreed with and confirmed in the last status hearing: he affirmed that the court’s Brady order controls, regardless of a plea or a waiver of rights by the defendant.
        Withdrawing the plea would make the posture of the case more logical to those trying to follow along; however, with Sullivan’s affirmation on the court order controlling, she may not need to. The downside to withdrawing the plea might be opening pandora’s box for the DOJ to pile things back on, raise more potential charges, essentially drag it out again to keep putting off a Reckoning for its conduct.
        We’ll see. One thing’s for certain: Gen. Flynn now has the best of the best, and no doubt, Sidney Powell has got this.

    • Beau Geste says:

      Sundance notes that the prosecutors may have some “splainin to do” at the next hearing.
      More important, bothe the crooked prosecutors, and Judge Sullivan (whether he is honest or a swasmp-protector), recognize that the records that Sidney Powell has requested, and others, can eventually be released. Even if Judge Sullivan refuses to require productiin, or the prosecutors abandon the case against General Flynn to try to prevent release.
      If AG Barr refuses production, President Trump can release the records to expose the fraud.
      Judge Sullivan must require production, even if the prosecutors abandon the case to try to preserve their own hides (pun?). Sullivan MUST do this to protect the requirement of honest ethical practice in the Federal Courts. Otherwise, the public will know the Federal Court system protects government corruption, rather than the Constitution.

  83. Midnite says:

    Re-reading Sidney’s motion to compel I’m struck by how methodically she is laying out the case for malicious prosecution, willful violation of the courts Brady order, prosecutorial misconduct as well as multiple ethics violations of the prosecutors involved. Not only is she defending her client, she is laying out a trail of evidence that she hopes will lead the court one unmistakable conclusion.
    I hope that once this case is dismissed she is able to use the courts findings to go after Weissmann and his cronies on both a personal and professional level. Nothing would please me more than to see this bastard spend the next 20 years behind bars…and that wouldn’t begin to repair the damage he’s done or heal the lives he’s ruined.

    • chojun says:

      I did a little bit of research and it looks like Andrew Weissmann allowed his law license in New York to lapse (it was due for renewal within 30 days of March). I think he exited the Special Counsel and hung up his hat due to the mountain of sh*t he had been propping up behind his back. There are several others from the Special Counsel who have also appeared to have either left the public sector or have retired or gone on to work for private firms.
      I think Van Grack will follow suit if he’s not disbarred. The Flynn case I think is the thread that unravels Mueller’s sweater. Next we’ll likely have declassifications involving Papadopoulos that I hope will show entrapment.
      Sidney Powell is going to work with Sullivan to send shockwaves through the justice system. Hopefully in the future malicious, political prosecutions will see a decline.

  84. Mac says:

    I have to bring this up again. There is no evidence that any Title-1 FISA warrant was issued on Michael Flynn. What we DO know, is that the DOJ/FBI attempted to obtain Title-1 warrants on at least three occasions and that two of those attempts were rebuffed. We know that the third attempt was successful and a Title-1 warrant was issued against Carter Page. Now, remember the two-hop rule for surveillance of associates inherent under Title-1. Under that rule, virtually the entire Trump campaign staff and much of the transition team was subject to electronic surveillance under the Page warrant. The FBI did not need a warrant on each of the targets, only on one to open up the entire Trump campaign to surveillance.And, all of the Flynn surveillance, of which we are aware, occurred after the Page warrant was issued. It is much more likely that the Flynn surveillance was conducted under the Page warrant than that a separate warrant was obtained for Flynn. Either way, the result would be the same.
    The surveillance would still be illegal, as the Page warrant was fraudulently obtained.

    • As Micd reminded us in an above post:
      It now seems the General Flynn was under investigation long before was common knowledge. It would have been impossible for me to know this but, if that was the case, and with me being one of two people who would become president, why was I not told so that I could make a change?

        What’s your level of alarm after the resignation of Michael Flynn?
        Evelyn Farkas
        It’s lower than it’s been since the summer, when I was first made aware of all this stuff. I’m like, finally, everybody else sees it! Seriously.
        The reason I was so upset last summer was that I was getting winks and hints from inside that there was something really wrong here. I was agitated because I knew the Clinton campaign and the world didn’t know. But I didn’t think it would happen this fast. I didn’t think Flynn would survive a year, but I thought it would be most of the year.

        …And then the response to the 2016 OIG audit of FARA included in the OIG Report is interesting.

        -snip-
        The OIG Report, however, also cites a view that the limited number of FARA criminal
        prosecutions is indicative of a counterintelligence tool that is underutilized. To demonstrate this, the Report refers to a belief by some FBI staff that the prospect of FARA charges might assist in obtaining cooperation from FARA violators, presumably in counterintelligence investigations. This, again, is most likely indicative of a mistaken conflation of Section 951 with FARA. It might be possible to use Section 951 in this manner; however, given the considerable challenges cited above in developing viable, appropriate prosecutions for FARA-related activity, such a use of FARA to obtain cooperation is unlikely at best. By promoting disclosures that unmask foreign political influence and foreign direction of political activities, FARA is an effective counterintelligence tool. In the alternative, a reluctance to register and disclose under FARA can, in fact, deter a foreign principal from engaging in political activities in the United States in the first place.

    • Moe Grimm says:

      Wasn’t aware of Title-1 limitation. Sundance probably covered this too, but I missed it. Thank you on the way to at this point a very long wait for grand jury/s > first set of indictments. On many counts it’s 23:00 in America.

    • FPCHmom says:

      But as Sundance has written about several times, the warrant to surveil Page was not really for that purpose. It was to introduce the dossier into the whole Russia narrative.
      The Page FISA was for show.
      You are right, they would not have neede it because of surveillance already going on (as Sundance has also noted.)

      • FPCHmom says:

        Correction – I think you have it backwards.

      • Mac says:

        I know Sudance keeps saying that the FBI went to all the trouble of gaining a Title-1 FISAwarrant on Page to introduce the Steele Dossier. However, this does not strike me as being very likely. In the first place the Steele Dossier was total BS and the FBI knew it. But, it could just as easily have been introduced by leaking it, without attempting to get a FISA warrant on Page. It is much more likely that the Steele Dossier was used by FBI in order to OBTAIN the warrant on Page. The FBI had attempted to get at least two Title-! warrants on others in Trump’s orbit and failed. They were likely to fail with Page, as well, unnless they could 1) get a sympathetic judge [which they did] and 2) had some additional “evidence” that Page was a Russian agent. It did not have to be very good evidence, just something to ice the cake. The Steele Dossier was used, largely in desperation.
        Now, while there might have been illegal electronic surveillance going on prior to the Page warrant, the conspiracy was largely cut off from the NSA FISA 702 program by Rogers. That is why there was one or more agents inserted into the Trump campaign to provide intel on it. The Title-1 warrants were to be used to provide legal cover for surveillance of the campaign and a single warrant would cover almost all of the campaign personnel under the two-hop rule. But, they kept failing to gain these warrants, because they could not provide enough proof that the targets were foreign agents. That is what they needed the Steele Dossier for, to paint Page as a foreign agent to obtain the warrant.
        Now, the Flynn-Kysliack intercept occurred AFTER the Page warrant was issued. The Page warrant was issued before the election and the conversation occurred after the election. So, Flynn would have been under the umbrella of the Page warrant at that time.

    • wxobserver says:

      I agree. If they had FISC ordered surveillance on Flynn, they would have had the entire campaign under surveillance. I can think of two reasons for a second warrant on Carter Page. Either because the Flynn surveillance was going to time out, or “just to be safe”.
      Without knowing more we could only guess that Flynn’s warrant (if it existed) had covered the time period of the Kislyak phone call — either 3 months (?) before or after that or somewhere in between.

    • Midnite says:

      I beg to differ on one point as it was James Comey himself who testified that he was not investigating the Trump Campaign, but rather four individuals. Comey is the Master of lying, without actually lying, while he’s lying. We know that they had FISA warrants out on Page, Papa D, Manafort and Flynn or as Comey would say four individuals, who just coincidentally happen to be working with the campaign. Why that man isn’t behind bars right now is…well, astonishing!

    Just floating idea, about FBI, Nellie Ohr, CrowdStrike and the Ukraine. We know from previous reporting that the FBI was exchanging data with Nellie Ohr, and received information from Ukraine but nothing about how the data was moved or were it came from within the country of Ukraine.
    Could it be, data was transferred to and from the Ukraine. And, CrowdStrike was providing the transfer technology from the NSA search results run by Nellie Ohr to a Ukrainian Database.
    This would certainly explain the reaction of the Deep State, to the reference of CrowdStrike in President Trump’s phone call.

  99. Laramie Evan says:

    Hopefully, the judge will also appreciate the context:
    One politician is using his power and influence to get a prosecutor in a 3rd world nation fired so that he can fleece that nation by getting his ne-er-do-well son appointed to the board of a company that has been awarded lucrative and rigged natural gas rights by a corrupt politician and political system. He uses our money — the loan guarantees to Ukraine, and the threat of withholding them — as leverage to line his family’s pockets.
    The other politician pleads guilty to a bogus charge so that he can protect his son and his son and son’s family from rogue prosecutors threatening to bring a corrupt prosecution.
    That is our system. Yet Democrats say that Trump should be impeached for trying to upset this apple cart.
    It remains to be seen whether this corrupt system can be fixed. I’m still betting against it.

    But if it did exist, Mr Flynn has waived that right.

Any one having been to and witnessed a federal trial would have already know this was the cause, this is how the get those guilty pleas. DOJ brings to many charges against too many people to trial them all, so they count on guilty pleas. The DOJ runs the country, if you did not know that before it is clear now, how do they do that , through the agency of the grand jury which they have stolen from the people, and the fact that they own all the judges.

I personally, can only assume that Barr is letting the whole thing run its’ course, through channels, to hamstring the Dems talking points. IMHO

      • Aeyrie says:

        Yes, NQO, the optics are important. We all see that the uphill slog of countering the propaganda mill is never going to stop until they are left without argument by verified facts and evidence.
        Another thing we need to keep in mind is that POTUS and the Patriots are evidently (to me) quietly paying out enough rope for the coup plotters to hang themselves with while they are comfortable thinking they are winning. The quote commonly attributed to Napoleon applies: “Never interfere with your enemy when he is in the process of destroying himself.”

    • Battleship Wisconsin says:

      General Flynn has now become a foot soldier in the lawfare battle of war President Trump is having with the Democrats and with the Deep State. Whatever outcome in this unfolding courtroom drama which can force early release of some good portion of the Sundance Sunlight Document List through Sydney Powell’s demand for access to currently classified information, but without engendering a risk of producing legally prejudicial impacts on future indictments of Spygate perps, is the outcome we should be hoping for.

    • SAM-TruthFreedomLiberty says:

      Barr just stopping the case is not possible, and if he would do it, make it look like he “circumvented Justice” in a partisan fashion. General Flynn and his team are clearly working to implode the evil parts of the DOJ, the special counsel, from within. The brady material they request is directly connected to the origins of spygate.
      I notice a lot of people demanding Barr to interfere in this and that and make statements that protect Trump. This would backfire easily and make anything further coming out of the DOJ worthless in the public perception. President Trump worked hard on making a big distinction between the weaponized Obama DOJ and Trump DOJ. He can defend himself like Flynn and his attorneys can defend themselves.

    • bodieisland says:

      Barr does not make all decisions, they hide behind “The DOJ declines to__________. fill in the blank with, give Brady info, look for info, prosecute Comey, McCabe, etc. This is what hamstrung Sessions, the runaway DOJ train. I’ve read articles where he gave specific orders to persons X, Y, Z, and they just said NO! or “I can’t hear you….. Those people screaming at Neilsen at lunch?? came from DOJ’s Democratic Socialists of America group. It’s on tape from Project Veritas. They can’t be fired and they know it, Except POTUS just put out an EO to clean up the rules of firing. YAY!!

    I get a certain powerful sense of calm satisfaction when I run across someone who is as solidly competent as Sidney Powell.
    Ms Powell, if I ever spot you sitting beside me on a plane, I’ll be offering you an adult beverage, my treat. Mrs Monadnock is aware of your good work, and heartily approves of this.
    Thank you for what you’re doing for Gen Flynn.

    • I really would like to know what ristvan think about it-Spooky..

      • ristvan says:

        Since you asked and I just arrived…
        There are two development as of now.
        Yesterday’s supplemental update by Ms. Powell explaining to Judge Sullivan why and how Van Grack coerced the Flynn plea by threating Flynn Jr with FARA. And Van Grack saying in court Flynn pled to a false FARA when the formal charging doc for the plea had nothing whatsoever about it, which is gross prosecutorial misconduct.
        Second is today’s Van Grack pound sand reply, which I just finished reading in its entirety. It argues (foolishly) three things:
        1. Flynn’s plea included foregoing further discovery. That is a stupid argument because they tried it before and Judge Sullivan already rejected it.
        2. Some of the Powell list of requested documents are not relevant—see the Van Grack specifics in attachment 1. The problem is, that is for Ms. Powell, NOT Van Grack, to determine. Van Grack tried that line once before, and it turned out the irrelevant documents Sullivan eventually forced them to supply WERE relevant. That fact is noted in Powell’s request to Sullivan to which this is the reply.
        3. Some of the requested documents were previously supplied. That is just an outright falsehood. One example: Sidney requested the original FBI 302, not the version McCabe revised several months later. Van Grack replied, previously supplied Pientko’s handwritten notes from the Flynn interview. BUT those ARE NOT the subsequent original formal 302 based on those notes. Van Grack is trying to hide more prosecutorial misconduct (original to later revised formal 302). Not a good look.
        IMO Judge Sullivan is not going to be a happy camper. And Sidney’s coming response to this BS (not a technical legal term, but fitting) response is going to be epic.

        • willthesuevi says:

          Thank you ristvan. I am not an attorney but when I read Liu, Van Grack and company’s reply I thought, these people cannot help themselves. They have to keep poking the bear. What a bunch of arrogance on display.
          Not sure this is going to end well for them.

        • Proud American from Texas says:

          Any chance this is purposeful to have the case thrown out so info stays hidden?

    • ..and do not forget -HUG- from all of us. We love you Ms.Sidney Powel true justice .warrior.!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • pacnwbel says:

      I second that statement Mr, M.

  105. Shyster says:

    The big picture more important question is that with Flynn under a FISA Warrant (meaning that the FISA Court found probable cause that Flynn was illegally acting on behalf of a foreign power) what plausible or half way believable excuse could the FBI/CIA or other intel agency have for not giving Trump and his campaign a defensive briefing. This is the key line of inquiry that needs to be fully and thoroughly, and I mean under oath, explored. Pushing this issue to the fullest will result in only a single conclusion. THEY WANTED TO SPY ON TRUMP AND THE ENTIRE TRUMP CAMPAIGN, THE ENTIRE TRANSITION TEAM AND ONCE IN THE WHITE HOUSE, EVERYONE FLYNN AND THE ADMINISTRATION INTERACTED WITH.

    • Midnite says:

      Don’t forget the story Sundance ran just the other day about how they were purposely abusing FARA in order to obtain legal FISA spy warrants. When we finally get a chance to see all the unredacted FISA’s you can bet the one commonality between them will be FARA violations.
      I think at least part of the explanation for not providing a defensive briefing is covered in Susan Rice’s letter to self. That excuse will go something like this “We think DJT is a Russian asset, we think his campaign staff are Russian assets….giving a defensive briefing to possible Russian assets is against the rules, so we’re going to “go by the book” on this. I think SD was right it wasn’t so much a CYA as it was justification for all their actions before and after the election.

    Barr (and Durham) is currently in the Dems crosshairs, along with Pompeo. They desperately need to dirty him up, he should leave sh!t alone that is taking care of itself.

    Reports: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was on the Trump-Ukraine phone call

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was one of the Trump administration officials who was in on the president’s July 25 phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, according to media reports.

    Yes, SD, very sickening. Go get em Sidney!

  110. TwoLaine says:

    Did Congress ever do any oversight of the corrupt cabal who got admitted abusing the FISA system? Mary McCord and team? Were they called on the carpet? Lose their pensions and livelihoods? Anything?

  111. dustahl says:

    Who is the head of the cabal and minions of the deep state.
    Obama? Heads of Multi National Corporations, Globalists outside the U.S. There must be a power structure of sorts.

    • Mr e-man says:

      George Soros is the head of the snake. By the way, his fingerprints are all over Ukraine.
      His cancerous dealings have now metastasized all over the world. Hundreds of sub groups and funding to tackle every area of resistance to his global scheme. Taking over Secretary of State positions to control elections, indoctrinating kids in schools and colleges, mass media control, politician control. etc.

      • Brian Colley says:

        Yeah Soros is rotten to the core going back to the second world war. But i think the CIA is the real. shadow gov. you need look no further than all the wars and countries they have taken down.I mean arms makers and dealers have to make money right. Drugs have to be delivered etc. It truly is a cabal of greed and power.

      • Joemama says:

        I believe that Soros actually works for and is funded by the banking families. He does the dirty work and takes the heat for them, so they can hide in the shadows

      • bodieisland says:

        It’s called The Atlantic Council, and US State dept gives our tax money to help fund them, along with Burisma, Open Society, and many more. Many names we all know are listed among their ranks.

  112. Mr e-man says:

    I think Powell is putting pressure on for the government to drop the case altogether. No need to remove the guilty plea because she can demand docs they don’t want to produce.
    She probably knows there is evidence incriminating the government in these docs. The prosecution is playing a game to continue the malevolent prosecution because they need the Flynn is guilty meme to support all their illegal doings and support the Orange Man bad false narrative.
    At some point they will realize that being able to say Flynn was part of this Trump conspiracy (see, we convicted him) is not worth the exposure of relevant aspects of the coup.
    If Judge Sullivan rules that they must comply, they will drop the case and claim publicly, through their henchmen in the MSM that they didn’t want to expose national security secrets and therefore dropped the case but still claim that Flynn is guilty.
    Powell may want to expose the coup and the evil Weissmann but her first concern is getting Flynn out of trouble. So they either let Flynn off or expose the coup. In exposing the coup they will also most likely exonerate Flynn. So it is a lose-lose for them now.
    I expect the case to be dropped before they are forced to expose their corruption. Can they last through the election to maintain their lies?

  113. willthesuevi says:

    Not sure the “general” public is buying this crap anymore. Two years ago I would have agreed with you. I am seeing a real sea change.

    Sullivan will wait for Huber. He’s not been in a hurry so far and that report may bring more evidence to the case before him. jmo

  115. cali says:

    @Sundance: Thank you for putting it together for all of us as each part by the excellent attorney Sidney Powell unravels the despicable and unlawful actions by the Mueller team against a man who gave his life to serve this country!
    Their actions can only be labeled beyond despicable and hopefully the law will catch up with them and give them their long and overdue comeuppance. They earned to be disbarred and even earned to receive some jail time.
    They inflicted absolute hardship on the Flynn family who lost their home in lieu of paying the legal bills forced on them by these characters.
    It is no co-incidence that Flynn’s prior defense team either willingly allowed the railroading or they were incompetent. No matter Sidney Powell will do right by Mike Flynn.
    That is the reason I did not wanted president Trump pardon Mike Flynn because he was always innocent caught up in a web of criminal corruption and deep state determined to destroy him for the info he has on them.
    Nothing less than total exoneration is warranted, applicable and the correct outcome in the case of Mike Flynn.

    The government ravaged General Michael Flynn and his family.
    rav·aged
    severely damaged; devastated.
    From the French, alteration of ravine – a rush of waters
    If there is ever justice, it is only because people demand it.
    Watch and learn.

  118. Leo colliver says:

    Flynn public comments against the way Obama was micro managing the wars doomed Flynn. Obama’s crew went after him just like they went after Rosen. Going after their families is disgusting low but effective.
