Stunning, Potentially Game-Changing, Court Filing by Flynn Defense Lawyer Sidney Powell…

In a lengthy court filing surrounding the issues of Brady discovery material, Mike Flynn’s lawyer, Sidney Powell, drops some serious evidentiary bombshells on the court.  Ms. Powell brings Lady Justice to the courtroom, and her revelations are stunning. [Full pdf’s below]


We’re going to go through the primary filing and four exhibits to the evidence Attorney Sidney Powell is delivering to Judge Emmet Sullivan which contain some explosive discoveries.  Toplines including:
(1) Lisa Page edited the Flynn 302’s, then forgot when questioned by DOJ officials, then re-remembered when shown her texts. (2) The 302’s themselves were written with lies that do not match notes taken during the interview. (3) The felony leaker of the Flynn-Kislyak phone call is named (James Baker). (4) New texts from Page and Strzok that highlight the entrapment plan. (5) ODNI James Clapper telling WaPo reporter Ignatius to “take the kill shot on Flynn“. (6) The purposeful use of Judge Contreras to take the December 1st 2017 plea agreement; and much, much more.


What’s the objective of this filing?
Attorney Sidney Powell outlines:

Lisa Page played a role in editing the Flynn 302:

The relationship between Judge Rudy Contreras and FBI Agent Peter Strzok was never revealed to the court, or to the Flynn defense team prior to a plea agreement that was overseen by Judge Contreras.

The FBI leaked details of their investigation to the media and then strategized over how they could weaponize the media reports to conduct investigations.   Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Counterintelligence Director Bill Priestap discussed if this approach would work.
The prosecution then intentionally withheld the text messages from Flynn and the public, in their prior releases, showing Peter Strzok and Lisa Page discussing the Strzok & Priestap strategy sessions on using the leaks.   Those texts, clear Brady material, were purposefully hidden by the DOJ, until Sidney Powell went to find them on her own:

Holy cats, this next part is incredible.  The 302’s were modified to make claims that were never made in the interview.  The language was purposefully and willfully made to look like something is wasn’t; and in some cases they made it up completely counter to the actual statement given by Mike Flynn:

[Keep in mind Powell has the interview notes to back up her statement]

Joseph Mifsud phones…. James Baker leaking the Kislyak phone call to David Ignatius and James Clapper saying “take the kill shot on Flynn”.  Good grief:

None of this information was provided to the defense.  All of the Brady material was withheld by the prosecution prior to the high-pressure plea agreement:

Folks there’s so much more in this filing you really need to look at it from beginning to end.  What is screen grabbed above isn’t even half of the devastating and documented evidence Ms. Powell is bringing before the court.
Quite simply the content of this 37-page filing is incredible.
Here’s the primary filing:
[scribd id=431958737 key=key-78UKJcKZP5lxpbvVWeHB mode=scroll]
.
Here’s the timeline provided to the court that gives context to what was happening in/around all of the events included:
[scribd id=431958739 key=key-By95SYnE7xAoruBW0Fkw mode=scroll]
.
Here’s the new text messages that support Ms. Powell’s primary filing. Including texts outlining how Lisa Page made edits to the FBI interview reports (302’s):
[scribd id=431958731 key=key-excpKaXouUtaBLJPHPaf mode=scroll]
.
Here’s the documented edits made to the Flynn 302 as it was debated for several weeks by the FBI ‘small group’.  This includes the edits made by Lisa Page and others to give the appearance of Flynn lying to investigators when, prior to the editing process, Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka readily admit they did not see Flynn as lying (and they had the call transcripts for comparison):
[scribd id=431958735 key=key-Fz6E45RTUsbAdfaJ1v4b mode=scroll]
.
Here’s the questioning of Lisa Page about her making those changes to the Flynn 302’s.  Initially Page can’t remember, then all of a sudden -when confronted with the text messates- she conveniently remembers:
.
[scribd id=431958725 key=key-PniV7dbCVKiV5GEYTmaY mode=scroll]
.
Attorney Sidney Powell has really done an excellent job putting this motion together with a mountain of incontrovertible supportive material to highlight how her client, Michael Flynn, was set-up.
If you take the time to read the primary 37-page motion, and then review the material that supports every assertion within the motion, you will be hard-pressed not to come to the conclusion that Mike Flynn was a victim of seriously unethical, borderline criminal, prosecutorial conduct.
If Judge Sullivan accepts this motion and goes through all of this material I think there’s a pretty good chance he will dismiss this case.  The next round of arguments within his courtroom are going to be very, very interesting.
Phenomenal job by Ms. Sidney Powell.  Exceptional.

  1. Robert Smith says:

    Thank you, Sydney Powell, TechnoFog, and Sundance for fighting the good fight.

  2. Dim Osmab says:

    With all respect, Sidney has more balls than all Obama’s FBI

    • Abolition Man says:

      Please D.O., those are ovaries, adamantine ovaries no less. She has more guts than an army of fiddlers. I can’t think of anything sexier than a smart, good looking woman with a Southern drawl (unless she’s packing; one can only hope.) Dinner with Sidney would be THE finest; how I would love to spend some hours in cocktails and conversation!
      Maybe I am too naive but I believe this country is going to need an independent, citizens commission to look into the corrupt and criminal behavior within our government and the MSM urinalists! Who better than Sidney to run such an operation. Throw in Joe and Victoria and someone like Alan Dershowitz to keep it balanced. Criminal conduct should have loss of position and ALL benefits as consequences, if proven. These scum should not be allowed to retire in comfort on the taxpayers dime after violating the legal and ethical standards that make America great.

  3. Fake Ruby says:

    (3) The felony leaker of the Flynn-Kislyak phone call is named (James Baker)
    Unless Sidney Powell made a grievous error in her court filing posted here (which I doubt), she identifies the leaker to Ignatius of the Flynn call with the Russian Ambassador – not as the familiar FBI General Counsel James Baker – but as Col. James Baker who worked with Halper at the DOD Office of Net Assessment at the Pentagon.
    This Baker is someone who I – who have followed this scandal as closely as anyone – do not recall ever encountering before.

    • Ditto.
      Now we’ve got Department of DEFENSE in on the coup?

    • joshashland says:

      Allegedly the leakersCol. James Baker
      Great catch

    • Fake Ruby says:

      Important addenda (from https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1014237543615774721.html ) :
      5/ I think the first unredacted mention of ONA director Baker in the texts is below. CES is most likely “Compliance Evaluation Subcommittee” of the FBI. I bet they are checking up on the use of Confidential Human Sources (Mifsud? Someone else?). Don’t know who Beth is.
      6/ Remember on March 16 2016, Strzok had his “our guy is talking” text, so he had something in the works and it was clearly a topic of conversation between he and Page. Mifsud and Papadopoulos had had multiple interactions at this point so that’s my guess.
      7/ In fact Baker is directly tied to that “our guy is talking” text. It looks like Strzok got that info directly from Baker.
      8/ 21:06 converted from GMT to EST would be 5:06PM EST. So it seems like James Baker from ONA sauntered over to FBI HQ after everyone was leaving for the day and told Strzok about this project involving a Confidential Human Source
      9/ Fast forward a month to April 10. Strzok is talking about a “storm”, he’s talking about big big problems. And “JB” is involved.
      10/ This is most likely associated with the revelation that raw FISA info was going to private contractors. There are a lot of redactions in the key finding below. But I bet ONA is the one “largely staffed by private contractors.”

      13/ So to recap. Strzok and Baker from ONA were working together on gathering intel, using private contractors and Confidential Human Sources, up until about April 9, when everyone found out about it and the shit really hit the fan.

      17/ So again, were Strzok/Fine/Baker all working together? Or was it Strzok pushing Fine to investigate Baker because of a lingering feud? Whose interests was Glenn Fine trying to protect?
      18/ It’s *possible* that the FBI had nothing to do with Mifsud, Downer, Stefan Halper, Henry Greenberg etc. It’s *possible* that it was all run out of the DOD think tank Office of Net Assessment. That would partly explain why FBI can’t hand over docs relating to Halper
      19/ That mid-April storm is really a turning point. I believe that’s when the “get Trump” operation went underground,.
      The operation went underground between mid-April and July 31, when Crossfire Hurricane officially started and it was back in the open.

      • Bogeyfree says:

        So is there the 3,100,000 searches came from in 2017 alone?
        Or
        1 search on various people every 10 seconds of every hour of every day for an entire year
        When is someone going to list every year beginning in 2009 through 2017 the total number of FIB contractor searches done each year.
        It’s a great FOIA request Tom Fitton and would make a great looking chart for all to see!

      • Jim in TN says:

        I seem to remember Page and Strzok texting about Oconus (sp?) Lures and getting them approved. If that is correct, then the FBI had records of running overseas spies in entrapment in this case.

        • Sherri Young says:

          The OconUS lures text from Strzok to Page was on 12/28/2015.
          Lisa Page was working on a “CPC” issue around that time. The word “policy” came up in her texts. Any insight?
          Looks like she had a late afternoon flight to somewhere the next day on Tuesday 12/29/2015 and possibly returned on 01/02/2016. No idea if that was a family trip or if it was for work.

          • Jim in TN says:

            Nope. That is long before Popadapolous became an advisor. And it is long before Crossfire Hurricane officially started. But it is well after Trump came down the elevator.
            Solomon was convinced things started in that time frame.
            How does that stack up with the Flynn lures?

            • Sherri Young says:

              Don’t know if it stacks up with any Flynn lures at all. Here’s something:
              https://themarketswork.com/2018/05/10/ties-that-bind-stefan-halper-joseph-mifsud-alexander-downer-papadopoulos/
              G”eorge Papadopoulos and Joseph Mifsud reportedly both worked at the London Centre of International Law Practice.
              Joseph Mifsud appears to have joined LCILP around November 2015. Papadopoulos appears to have joined LCILP sometime in late February or early March 2016 after leaving Ben Carson’s campaign.”
              PapaD has said he went from Ben Carson’s campaign to the Trump campaign and started with the LCILP around the same time.
              “How Papadopoulos got the position remains unknown. An article by Medium notes the following:
              The Centre for International Energy and Natural Resources Law & Security existed, at least in name, before Papadopoulos’s arrival and it’s unclear why he was chosen to head it. A list on the website of a dozen people associated with it suggests others were better qualified.”
              Most people cannot move overseas at the drop of a hat. Some lead time is involved. Was he being set up because he was on the Carson campaign and the DS got lucky when Trump strengthened and Carson dropped out? Lots of questions.
              BTW, PapaD’s LinkedIn page is a sketchy mess.

        • WRB says:

          OCONUS — Outside the CONtinental US i.e. anywhere except the “lower 48” , so generally speaking, US territories and foreign countries.

          • Jim in TN says:

            I know it is often used the way you describe, but Alaska is part of the continent. When I lived there, they preferred the word contiguous. Not that government actually cares what people think.

      • fabrabbit says:

        Fake Ruby? So interesting…now a question. Why was Flynn targeted?

    • maggie0987 says:

      Excellent comment Ruby! I, also thought it was the FBI lawyer guy James Baker.
      Very important distinction.

  4. Heika says:

    I am so excited I don’t know what to do with myself. Its the ‘quickening’ and its here at last, on all fronts. The panic is setting in all over the place. Please God, do not let this pot go off the boil. There has to be a time when the old ‘deep six’ is so filled up with lies and deception they simply can’t shove anymore down there. Let it overflow all over the stove and onto the floor.

  5. MakeAmericaGreat says:

    Absolutely devastating. Incredible.
    Thank God Sidney got this case. Nothing against DiGenova and Toensing — who I thought were going to get the Flynn case and I rooted for to get the case — but Powell is the perfect person to handle the case, in part because of her comprehensive knowledge of how Weissmann and his ilk work.
    https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/1187536832587862017
    Right on time. Just as the White Hats made their move during the 2016 election campaign:
    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2016/10/30/white-hats-black-hats-and-humas-laptop/
    We live in remarkable times.

    • MakeAmericaGreat says:

      Just to be clear — what Posobiec is saying in that tweet is that, in my estimation, the White Hats are working to help Sidney Powell with the Flynn case by providing her with critical inside information.
      If I recall correctly, didn’t Sidney seem to have a heads-up about the Mifsud phone recovery in advance? I think she did.
      There are whistleblower White Hats who have stayed out of things up to this point, I believe. But it looks like they’ve finally begun to get in the game.
      Thank goodness.

      • Insightful observation, MAG!

        • MakeAmericaGreat says:

          Thanks BKR!
          Posobiec pretty much said the same, I think, just not in that tweet.
          Posobiec has his drawbacks, IMO. But he has some real sources, particularly in Intel and National Security (he’s former Navy Intel, I think).

      • Dee Paul Deje says:

        We’re not supposed to say it here but, Sept 19, 2018:
        Question: “Flynn exonerated soon?”
        Answer: “In the end, all will be right. Patriots protect patriots.” – Q

        • Dee Paul Deje says:

          Holy shiite, same day:
          ‘Watch those announcing 2020 P running.
          “You cannot attack a political opponent”
          None are protected.
          None are safe.’

        • lotbusyexec says:

          Don’t ever feel bad to acknowledge where your read or find info – knowledge shaming is what Libs/dems do. I trust this audience to take much of what we read on the “outside” with a fine tooth comb – DPD just glad you are hear and spreading the word of TCTH. “Today is going to be a good day.” From the play Dear Evan Hansen 😉

        • Den says:

          Assuming this will be over very soon, I would think that Trump might want to reach out to her for doing his legal team.

      • Dixie says:

        I am just so pleased to learn that we might actually have “white hats” who are patriotic Americans working on the inside.

      • I have never discounted Flynn….he is a seriously smart man…..when Sidney came on board, I knew there were great things coming from these two warriors.
        Isn’t this the perfect way to get all this stuff out in the open? it’s not coming from PT, so no-one can allege political motivation……it’s genius!

      • HB says:

        I can imagine her mention of the Misfud phones were a blind side punch to Van Grack and the prosecution.

    • Perot Conservative says:

      Joe is a great, wonderful communicator… but I’m not sure he’s up for the rigors of 20’hour days, day after day.

  6. Heika says:

    Its amazing really. Sidney may well do more mortal damage to their scheme than all the Attorney Generals, Inspector Generals, and all the presidents men (well thats a joke but you know what I mean).

    • MakeAmericaGreat says:

      I think that is the plan. Good guys work through Sidney to help destroy the entire coup.

      • How about a criminal referral for Lisa Page, along with disbarment. Sounds completely criminal and unethical, and it was performed with intent and premeditation, not by “accident”. Maybe part of a RICO scheme along with all of the others who knew of the “editing”, but remained silent or supported it.

        • Trog Luddite says:

          Going back to when I first began reading about this stuff here (when the S/Page texts came out, IIRC), I thought that Lisa P was a key person. I also remembered that whole blurb, “you are sat down and told what you are facing, get an attorney, don’t say anything.”
          Look at how the people who are overly confident that they are safe are acting – writing opinion pieces in the Wash Po, NYT; going on book-selling tours, appearing on TV.
          Miss Page should be a hero of the resistance and she should be appearing on the View, Rachel Maddow, writing books, etc. Yet she is quiet …. too quiet if I’m one of the higher ups. She probably doesn’t have the trust fund or the rich spouse or the right connections to allow her to flaunt the law, so she is sitting quietly like a good potential witness should (and hopefully wearing a wire if any of her co-conspirators try to contact her to obstruct justice by shaping her actions).
          My money is on Lisa Page as one of the first three people to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit the crime of [fill in many] and who outlines the whole scheme in her plea agreement.

      • Dixie says:

        “Good guys work through Sidney”…..BECAUSE there is finally someone they can trust and this speaks volumes.

      • littleanniefannie says:

        She will be “featured” in American History books. Unfortunately, since they are written by as well as chosen by Communist radicals, she will likely be denigrated. My vote says she is head and shoulders The Smartest Woman in the World. The fact that she has teamed up with President Trump makes them the American Dynamic Duo.

  7. Michaela Miller says:

    Wow, thank you Sundance. Any idea when the next round of arguments will be or how long it will take to dismiss this case? Good morning and have a great day everyone!

    • TwoLaine says:

      They will want it out of the news fast, or else their impeachment scheme, as well as all of their other schemes will go to hell in a handbasket real quick.

      • littleanniefannie says:

        This shoots their impeachment scheme all to Hades. Confirmation, absolutely and positively, that President Trump was the victim of a witch hunt. Impeachment is an off-shoot of the witch hunt. The MSM should begin a thorough soul-searching. Their continued denial will parallel the Lori Laughlin case. They may believe they can skate but that ice is going to bust their a$$e$ when they fall and they are going to fall.

    • ristvan says:

      Sullivan scheduled the next hearing for Nov 7. Perhaps he will now move it up.

      • Battleship Wisconsin says:

        ristvan says: “Sullivan scheduled the next hearing for Nov 7. Perhaps he will now move it up.”
        Dismissing the DOJ’s case against General Flynn would be a momentous decision on Judge Sullivan’s part with many legal and political ramifications.
        If I were in Judge Sullivan’s shoes, and if I had decided to dismiss the case, I would take enough time to write a solid justification for that decision.
        By the way, I remain convinced the House of Representatives will follow through with a fast-track impeachment of the president.
        Why? Because in fighting a political war by lawfare means, the best defense is a good offense. Impeaching President Trump is the most powerful lawfare offense the Democrats and their allies in the MSM could possibly come up with.
        Unless it all blows up in their faces. Research has demonstrated that stranger things have happened.

  8. HBD says:

    They never thought Hillary would lose. What a hell of a mess this country would’ve in had she won. The Good Lord was looking out for us.

  9. Devil in the Blue Drapes says:

    It should be noted, the leaker James Baker is COL James Baker at DoD.
    This POS not only injected himself into the coup against Flynn, but has single handedly ruined another man’s career, Adam Lovinger.
    It appears an IG investigation was begun on Baker 9/28/17, but no knowledge of the results.
    Btw, it appears this obama holdover is still employed in Trump’s DoD.

    • Kintbury says:

      Wasn’t he the whistleblower who was looking into the payments to one of the “Oconus Lures”? Fat guy, cannot remember his name.

      • Devil in the Blue Drapes says:

        Possibly Stephan Halper? I don’t know that Lovinger was digging into him per se, but he was uncovering all kinds of pay-to-play re Hillary,/Chelsea friends getting bogus fat cat think tank contracts.
        Just another sham paid by us plebe taxpayers.

  10. Julie for Trump says:

    Ms. Powell went digging really deep. Excellent job. Thank you Sundance for all information and reminders of previous information. Hope mr. Flynn finally gets his name and reputation restored. Pray For Judge Sullivan. He has a tremendous chore ahead of him.

    • Daniel says:

      Would you be surprised if Powell used Sundance’s work as part of her actions? I wouldn’t. Just look at the very real results he has had in previous focal topics in the past? Trayvon? Michael Brown? So many others.

      • lolli says:

        Daniel, I would not be surprised one bit.
        Sundance and Powell are heroes to our Republic!
        God bless and keep them both safe.

      • amwick says:

        Just a little observation, more than once she has used the phrase (IIRC) about sunshine being a disinfectant, in formal court filings. I think, it might have been a wink and a nod.

      • Jim in TN says:

        Before taking this case, she commented here quite frequently. She was very familiar with the details. Quite likely that Sundance’s research has been a good starting point to seek out hidden evidence. But she has gone far beyond the information Sundance has analyzed.

  11. Nowut Ameen says:

    My takeaway is that the court was willingly complicit in the sham FISA process. Contreras should be impeached and disbarred.

    • Mark L. says:

      And who is Contreras’ boss.

    • Heika says:

      Thats my bet too. Been thinking about that right from when he recused himself the old skunk

    • beach lover says:

      Yep.

    • Beau Geste says:

      All of the FISC judges should be replaced. and a “Public Defender” office established.
      The FISC surely knew the FISA on carter page was a political scam to spy on the Trump campaign, and then on the President. The FISC has completely failed its responsibility to protect the 4th Amendment rights. There is no plausible explanation for this behavior. They surely knew the Constitutional issues relating to political spying, but held no hearings on the issue, or to cross-examine the phony fact-allegations of the FISA and its extensions. The FISC has held no hearings to discipline the DOJ lawyers who presented the phony political-spy warrants. The FISC has not withdrawn the falsely-obtained Warrants, as is their duty, even after they have expired, as being improvidently granted.
      A Public Defender office is necessary, with the authority to challenge crooked or political filings, cross-examine alleged “facts”, move to discipline DOJ counsel who present phony FISA applications, and appeal wrongful FISA warrants to the Supreme Court. The Public Defender attorneys would be appointed by the President, and have authority to petition the Supreme Court and the US Senate for removal of FISC Judges who do not respect the Constitutional rights of US Citizens, thousands of whom (unknown to the Court) are within many of these phony warrants. The Public Defender would be authorized, and have a duty, to notify US Citizens who are illegally spied on, that their Constitutional rights have been violated.

    • fabrabbit says:

      Which is why he recused, what 18 months ago?

  12. Daniel says:

    The coupsade to destroy this presidency started with criminal acts by the DOJ and FBI and now it’s going to be the undoing of the coupsade.
    Will this result in overturning or at least reopening the other Mueller cases? What is the status with Roger Stone?
    I hope (big wish) the movement which may convict these players will take with them this in the legistlative branch who coordinated and participated and fast. That would go a long way to end the second crap show we are watching now.

    • littleanniefannie says:

      I would love to see Sidney clean house at SDNY, the main cesspool out of DC. She can do it.
      SDNY is to the US Attorneys Office what the 9th Circus is to the Federal Court System.

  13. tappin52 says:

    WOW! This is amazing. SidneyPowell has more guts and smarts than all of the schlepps in both houses of congress. Take note, JAG man Lindsey Graham! This is how you take down unethical prosecutions.

    • scrap1ron says:

      That’s because the congressional schlepps are failed lawyers, influence peddlers on the take, and grifters.

  14. shirley49 says:

    Sydney is a great role model. Wish Flynn had her from the beginning. Hope he sues the he!! out of them so he can recoup his money and much more. She would make a great Supreme Court Justice.

    • Raghn Crow says:

      Or a superb Attorney General. The DOJ needs a hyper-power acid wash, the FBI needs dismantled and the pieces scattered over the Rockies (or maybe the North Pacific), and the CIA needs Captain Kirk to “beam it up” and then re-beam it out into space, in a wide-pattern dispersal.

        The Obama holdovers from FBI/DoJ/DoS/DoD/CIA/DNI et al need to be loaded onto the Starship from Coneheads, sent to Remulak and made to knarftle the garthok. No golf for them though. Just line the heads up on a shelf for all to see!

  15. Realist says:

    And when it is all revealed all roads will be foung to lead back to that ‘Particularly DEVOUT MUSLIM’ according to ALL his Indonesian school contemporaries Bath House Barry HUSSEIN Soetero OBAMA.

      NO doubt – don’t forget Eric Holder, Valerie Jarret, Loretta Lynch, Susan Rice, Samantha Powers, et. al! List is going to be LONG. Is Gitmo BIG enough?

        Nothing. Not a peep!

      • Your Tour Guide says:

        I have the gut feeling that Jarret is in mucccchhh deeper
        then anyone realizes. Obama was too lazy to actually do
        any real thinking. He left that up to Jarret.
        Limbaugh was talking recently about how the liberals
        disregard all rules until they get what they want. Or, pretend
        that they are paying attention, then do the exact opposite.

Is it because he’s a co-operating witness? Haven’t heard much about Trish Anderson or Jen Boone before and they aren’t REDACTED.

    • tazok says:

      I think it’s (Bill) Priestap, Strzok’s Boss. Long ago to be assumed a cooperative witness. The second redaction above was Lisa saying McCabe, Strzok or Redacted. Too long for ‘Comey’, Priestap seemingly fits, though.

        For a few reasons that it’s not worth getting into, I think there are other cooperating witnesses and have been for some time.

        IIRC, Sundance long ago thought Priestap was a white hat, but subsequently discovered and reported evidence that Priestap was NOT a cooperating witness. He’s in it up to his neck. If he is now cooperating, it’s likely in an effort to reduce his potential punishment and sentence.

        After having bragged about how they abused the existing protocols, Trump, the White House and Flynn in this entrapment scheme, I am surprised that Comey is not on the list.

    I am so proud of her. She is so strong, smart and capable. Her determination and legal acuity make me wonder what were Flynn’s prior attorneys doing for his defense other than taking all his money? Helping to cover up for the government and content to allow an innocent man go to jail?

  21. Devil in the Blue Drapes says:

    IIRC, Sidney Powell was being stonewalled from being granted Security Clearance. Does anyone know if she obtained SC? If not, someone in high places is feeding her these nuggets.
    As to the agent notes she possesses, I recall in one of her early Briefs to the Court, she obtained these from Flynn’s prior attys files. Ya know, the Covington attys who apparently never turned these over to the Court and had Flynn pleading guilty (almost to Treason, which caused Judge Sullivan to explode).
    I posted this up thread, but it warrants its own SD post, as this man, COL James Baker is tied into taking down another good man, Adam Lovinger, a staunch Trump supporter, who got too close to the Hillary Clinton cash cow within DoD ONA.
    A DoD IG investigation was initiated on Baker 9/28/17, of which we’ll probably never know the results.
    Oh, another minor detail….Baker is STILL employed in the Trump DoD! Engelburka Sasse

    • sticknca says:

      I believe the notes you refer to were not provided to Covington until AFTER Flynn had reached and accepted a plea.

      • Devil in the Blue Drapes says:

        Reference please. If memory serves, these files were obtained and prep notes taken (by Covington) in reference to FARA and Flynn’s cooperation in the US v Rafiekian case.
        In any event Covington was ineffective counsel at best or complicit at worst.
        Covington is packed with obama sycophants. Flynn should’ve known this.

        • Jim in TN says:

          Flynn’s cooperation came after his plea. Both claims can be correct, though references would be nice to clear up both claims.

      • willthesuevi says:

        I am with Devil. I have searched and cannot find where Sundance addressed this. ( My search-fu is not very good.) But I know it was addressed.
        If my memory is correct, Covington & Burling as Flynns Counsel were made aware of these notes, possibly verbally, in a half-assed Brady notification. Covington & Burling said it wouldn’t change anything. This was literally right before Flynn agreed to the deal.
        I may be a little off but pretty sure I read it on this site.

        • bessie2003 says:

          This may be part of the reason the filing makes remarks about the former attorneys, Covington & Burling, as having conflicts of interest with their representation of Flynn.

    • Jack Dempsey says:

      Interesting article.
      2 (somewhat off-topic) highlights:
      1. Lovinger was targeted for pointing out that Col. James Baker was funneling DOD money to a business owned by a Chelsea (!) Clinton crony.
      2. Col. James Baker was appointed ONA director, replacing Andrew Marshall, who led the ONA for 42 (!) years before retiring at age 93 (!!!).

    • Beau Geste says:

      Is baker “SES”, so he can’t be fired?
      The SES-infested federal agencies simply ignore PDJT, when they aren’t actively trying to thwart him.
      The claim to make SES employees permanent and un-fire-able is that they have “expertise”.
      Rent dilapidated office buildings in Gary, Indiana for all SES employees. Transfer them to Gary, Indiana. Assign them to document all their “expertise” so it is available to the government. No phones would be provided, but theu would be available by email to any other government employee with any question relating to their “expertise”. That way, the need for their expertise will be recorded, and their responses will be a “valuable asset” which is also permanently recorded.
      Gary very much needs the money, and PDJT doesn’t need the SES obstructors.

      Keep in mind, McCabe’s the one pushing Rosie to go along with his cover-up, and appt an “SC”. He’d do ANYTHING to keep his fat out of the fire and damage General Flynn, President TRUMP and anyone in their orbits. PAYBACK.

  33. Newhere says:

    I just have to say: It is practically tear-inducing joy to read the filing of an individual who is (1) an exceptional lawyer, (2) a razor-sharp thinker, (3) a precise and commanding writer and (4) possessed of a fierce affinity for justice.
    Sidney Powell, I hope you still read CTH comments as we humbly offer our gratitude for your service; you are patriot, a warrior, a lawyer’s lawyer, and I hope someday you get a medal.
    Honestly everyone should read this brief; it’s not terribly long, and it’s the sort of thing you might use to red-pill any half-way lucid friends and family.
    Anyway, a couple qts/comments I haven’t seen in other quick takes:
    I noted w/r/t prior filings that Powell seemed to be carefully side-stepping the issue of the conduct/competence of prior counsel; well here she stopped circling and lodged an attack that might signal more to come. The accusation is precise, aggressive, and sure to reverberate through the glassy halls of Covington’s Penn Quarter office: it goes after them for a non-consentable conflict of interest by continuing to represent Flynn in plea connected to FARA registration charges, after having represented him in the investigation, preparation, filing and defense of the FARA registration at issue. Thems fightin words! And she even threw in that it cost Flynn over $1M, for his trouble.
    The larger point (why Powell brings it up now) is that Flynn didn’t actually receive any “benefit” in exchange for his plea agreement, because on every charge bandied about by the govt he was both innocent and railroaded (broadly paraphrasing). The conflict of interest was one of many damning facts, accumulating into a mountain of a raw deal. But it’s the only mistreatment laid at the feet of prior counsel, and it’s a doozy. By identifying the conflict as “non-consentable,” Powell is saying the conflict is so serious– that the client and lawyer interests diverge so fundamentally–that the lawyers were obligated to resign as Flynn’s counsel, EVEN IF he furnished a written, informed consent. It’s a big shot over the bow, because “non-contestable” essentially pre-empts what would be the natural Covington defense (“we informed Gen. Flynn and he consented to our continued representation ….”).
    This is sort of a lawyerish point …. but the upshot that may have wider interest is that the allegation sure looks like it sets up a claim for damages — minimally, reimbursement of attorneys fees. Over $1m to get railroaded by a swampy DC firm! Just one of many outrages in the brief ….
    So here’s my second thing: Sundance highlights that the objective of the filing is dismissal of the charges. The request for relief names 3 things — production of Brady evidence, an order that the gov show cause for why they shouldn’t be held in contempt, and dismissal of the charges. BUT, at another point in the filing, Powell mentions that certain Brady evidence would be relevant to a motion to dismiss that Gen. Flynn “anticipates” it will file. Which might imply it hasn’t technically asked for one yet. Any lawyers able to clear up the exact posture here?
    A sort of plain-reading take is that Powell essentially is saying “we’re again asking for what they haven’t given us; their conduct so far, including the refusal to comply with the production order, is enough to justify contempt and dismissal and we’re asking for that ruling; but if instead the gov finally obeys the court order at this late hour and hands over what we’re asking for, we expect that based on what we receive we’ll at that point file a motion to dismiss.” In short, dismiss now, or force them to give us more and if they do, we’ll file a motion to dismiss then. Other takes on this?

    • sticknca says:

      Excellent summary. My only addition with respect to the conflict of interest at Covington, it seemed to also indicate a responsibility on the Court to refuse to accept the plea on a non-consentable basis if I read it correctly. She didn’t bring a knife to a gunfight, she brought a belt-fed, light mounted weapon of war.

      • Newhere says:

        Right good catch. This is really an air-tight presentation IMO! I guess there’ll be a hearing then decision … I wonder how quickly things move from here.

        • Mark L. says:

          Up to this point, stalling has been a major part of the formula.

          • beach lover says:

            Up till now… but with all the other information coming out AT THE SAME TIME (not a coincidence, IMHO) I feel the court is starting to get a flavor of how corrupt the past administration really was, and how they had to take down not only Flynn, but take out Sessions, and get Trump on the defense.
            It’s all crumbling at once for the small group. It is connected. If I was Lisa Page, I would be singing like a canary because they have the evidence of what was done and those she tried to protect are going down… she can help the cause, or be amongst the convicted.

            • willthesuevi says:

              beach lover,
              Per Lisa Page I agree.
              I have long thought Lisa Page was never comfortable with what happened. She knew it was wrong and went along anyway. I am not excusing her actions but I think if any of these bad actors are to break ranks she will be the one. I don’t think she is as far gone as the rest of the criminals.
              I think she still has a conscience and needs to listen to it.

      • Beau Geste says:

        Re “anticipated filing”. This may be a “motion to withdraw coerced guilty plea”. If Judge Sullivan does not grand her motion for dismissal and the requested records, a motion to withdraw the extorted (threatening Flynn’s family) guilty plea will place the case in better posture for appeal.
        All DC federal judges are likely long-term deep state, protect-the-status-quo-swamp creatures. How was it that judge Sullivan was “selected” to replace the deeply conflicted Contreras? Pretty secretive, eh what? (Fed court “trust us”)
        Judge Sullivan has stalled looking into this case (as is his duty), and earlier he actually threatened General Flynn. The only check on him is that all the “redacted” materials of the coup attempt could be declassified, during appeal proceedings, revealing him to be part of the swamp (if he denies the motions). He will probably stall before acting on these motions, until he sees what is in the IG Horowitz report, and/or Durham proceedings.

    • GB Bari says:

      Newhere, much appreciation for your observations on the filing. I read it but did not realize the implications of the statements re. Covington. It makes perfect sense; it is certainly a mandatory part of making Flynn “whole” again.

      • Newhere says:

        Wouldn’t be surprised if Covington proactively reimburses his attorneys fees and prays he doesn’t file an ethics complaint with the bar, or even a civil complaint for malpractice — and that’s not just because they’re sure to lose, though it doesn’t look great for them. The PR alone would be devastating (how do you spin $1M in attorneys fees, ignoring a conflict, then pleading out your client for the very work you performed?). And perhaps most important, their insurance — which is a BIG deal for major firms — would go through the roof if a claim is filed.

    But now their entire “House of Cards” is falling down……….they are in a panic.
    Great job Sydney……nice……
    And on a side note……If you remember……Pence had Gen. Flynn fired because Pence claimed Gen. Flynn “lied” to him.
    Pence went on a Sunday talk show and falsely criticized Gen. Flynn by being caught unprepared to answer questions.
    Gen. Flynn knew he was not lying, but took on tor the team, not wanting to contradict the Vice President. This is where most of it began…..Pence
    I have said before…..Pence is “dirty”

    • Deplorable_Vespucciland says:

      Pence is only guilty of being a politician first, looking out for his own skin. It was the crooked Press which got the VP to speak out against the good general; and it was the weasel Comey who initiated the takedown by sending his criminal henchmen into the White House to interview Flynn.
      So, through the collaboration of deepstate spooks and a pravda press an incoming president’s National Security Advisor was summarily removed from his position after campaigning long and hard with the president; and sent into abject poverty and incarceration for no good reason.
      James Comey deserves to be the first domino to be tipped over. The arrogant fool laughed on national TV about how he tricked the new Administration into letting his agents interrogate Flynn without a lawyer present. Comey should be numero uno on the hotseat followed by Brennan, Clapper & Lynch.

      • GB Bari says:

        Using the K.I.S.S. principle, I long ago concluded that Mike Pence is simply not the brightest bulb in the drawer and was easily duped into believing much of the false info regarding Flynn AND President Trump. That’s why IMO, Pence was really silent for a long time during the Mueller investigation, but has in recent months spoken out more forcefully in defense of the President. It took him longer than most of us to know that all of the charges against the President are false and based on fabricated “evidence.”

    • fabrabbit says:

      Gunny66: Pense is dirty? I sure hope not. Many VP’s have quietly undermined their Presidents but I don’t think VP Pense does, nor do I think he’s dirty. I think he does a good job of supporting PDJT.

    The unseen hand of Barr and Durham is all over these recent filings by Sidney Powell. These are the altered 302s that we have all been hearing about for the past year that nobody has managed to produce. How did Powell suddenly to come by them? The other day, Powell produced in a court filing not only the fact that that Mifsud’s Blackberrys contained Brady material, but she had both the device and the sim card serial numbers of both Blackberrys. Who could have possibly given her that information, given that Durham only recently came by them?
    If one starts from the assumption that Mueller was mentally incapable of running his investigation and that Andrew Weissmann was in fact the guy in charge, and that the prosecution of General Flynn is being handled by Weissmann’s minions, everything begins to fall into place. Andrew Weissmann’s criminal tactics are all over the Flynn prosecution. By exposing the corrupt prosecution of Flynn, Barr and Durham have not only an opportunity to bring justice to General Flynn, they help build the public narrative of a vast criminal conspiracy that included Andrew Weissmann and his enabler, Rod Rosenstein, James Comey (remember he bragged about setting up Flynn), and Andrew McCabe (“First we fuck Flynn, then we Fuck Trump”). And by channeling this evidence through Sidney Powell into the Flynn case, Barr and Durham get it introduced into the public domain through court filings. Plus, by having the evidence introduced in the Flynn case, the argument that Barr’s investigation is simply revenge by President Trump is shot to pieces. And who better than Sidney Powel to handle the gutting of Andrew Weissmann? She has literally written the book on his corrupt tactics: Licensed to Lie.
    I now see Powell’s efforts in the Flynn case as only tangentially about exonerating and bringing justice to General Flynn. In a much more profound sense what she is doing as an integral part of the effort to expose the criminal conspiracy to subvert the office of the Presidency of the United States. This seditious conspiracy is in fact an attempted coup d’etat. Barr and Durham — and now with the help of Sidney Powell — are without question handling the prosecution of the most important criminal case in the history of the United States.
    In this construction, General Michael Flynn is fighting the last and indisputably most important battle of his distinguished military career: The battle to save our Republic.

    • beach lover says:

      I like the way you think.

    • MILupper says:

      The prosecutors in Flynn’s case now have to wonder if Powell has all the documents she is asking for in her possession. I believe she has.The filing has too much detail for her not to have them. Ex.- All the dates of the numerous Strozk 302s about Flynn interview.
      Powell is giving them the chance to admit to the illegal prosecution of Flynn which is part of the coup on PDJT.. If they don’t she drops all the documents in further court filings proving it was all a setup to take out Flynn and ultimately PDJT.
      I agree with you Gort- Weissmann is written all over this.

  43. Newhere says:

    Also, THIS is why when Powell came out swinging, I thought DOJ would drop the case and slink away with some pathetic cover story.
    They messed with a honey badger. Natural consequences.

    Perhaps this filing is why the NYT chose to release the article about the criminal investigation at this time. That is, to draw attention away from it.

      What a bunch of weasels. I sure hope the WH has some good spokespeople on this this weekend. Because we know this latest news is gonna clash with what the media and the Dems were wanting in the headlines.

  47. Sundance, “this is criminal conduct by the Federal Government.” Period. And it demonstrates the depth to which Trump’s enemies will plunge, and who they’re willing to take with them – in this case, an Army General. Not only should this case be dismissed, but criminal charges should be pursued against the many actors involved.

  48. Perot Conservative says:

    Borderline criminal? Borderline criminal? CRIMINAL FELONIES ABOUND!!!
    How did she get this information, when.others didn’t?
    I’m no lawyer, was in a relationship with one and assisted on a few cases… but, really …
    1. Fabricating false testimony.
    2. Fraud? (I believe 5 components have to be proven.)
    3. Conspiracy.

  49. Zachary Navarre says:

    The way the MSM SHOULD be covering this story.
    Facts.
    Sources listed/displayed for review.
    Minimum political posturing.
    God bless you, Sundance, for all you do.

    • LCPUSA says:

      definitely would have been lost without Sundance these last several years….

      • jimboct says:

        Sundance is doing the job that Journalists USED to do.
        Dare I say, Sundance had a heavier lift than Woodward and Bernstein. Those two idiots had everything spoon fed to them by Mr. Felt. Sundance had to actually connect the dots and do the research himself.
        If he were working for the Times or Post (Perish the thought!), Sundance would be up for a Pulitzer for his work. Instead, he will always have the eternal gratitude of Patriots across the country and some around the world.
        At some point the MSM will have to cut and run from the Deep State. (If the MSM values their role as the giver of all propaganda to the masses). Someone in the MSM and the Deep State will be held up as a sacrifice. How high up the sacrificial lamb is depends on how much evidence Mr. Durham turns up. As I see it with what we know today, Page is going to sell out McCabe. McCabe will turn on Comey and it gets interesting. Clapper is already signaling Obama so I suspect the venerable Mr. Clapper will suffer a health emergency. Brennan will get burned in this.
        If Durham has a lot we haven’t seen, it rises to the level of Lynch and maybe get into the ValJar / Obama levels. Biden is a separate issue and he will be hung with a major Ukraine / Romania / China scandal.
        It’s getting interesting

    • Kristin DeBacco says:

      I second that wholeheartedly Zachary

      • Chip Doctor says:

        I am grateful for Sundance’s ability to put all these layers on top of each other and then connect the dots for us. I am good at what I do, but simply do not have the ability to organize it into something coherent. I can’t fix my car, heating and A/C, or electrical problems either.
        I have learned my limitations and happily pay my mechanic, an electrician, or heating and air conditioning repair person. That’s what makes the world go around.
        So, this is a good time to remind Sundance’s readers, especially you newbies, to support this site with donations. He is just as valuable and essential as your A/C guy in August!

  50. LCPUSA says:

    old enough to remember that Wictor called this…over 2 years ago. Flynn is the greatest spook of all time and this was a trap.

    • Parker Longbaugh says:

      I guess Wray and Boente were working on new FBI training manuals and somehow, some way, never had a chance to read the newspapers when the redacted texts were released after the Flynn plea.
      Because there is no way they would hide information damaging to their friends in the department.
      When and how did Rosenstein become aware?

    • GB Bari says:

      So Gen. Mike Flynn was willing to have his finances ruined, his life destroyed, his son threatened, and risk imprisonment because he was a master spook laying a trap?
      I don’t buy that at all, especially now that we KNOW the perfidy of those who ensnared him and that it required the doggedness and brilliant work of Ms. Powell to uncover the treachery. That prediction from Wictor was part of the “64 D chess” crap we were constantly baited with back then.

  51. amwick says:

    Down the road, but not in the distant future, I am counting on Ms. Powell sitting down to a long interview (Mark Levin?) where she explains all of this. She is deep in the worst dregs of the swamp, fighting for the good Gen. Flynn, but she also sees things from 30,000 feet…
    I high lighted SD’s screen snip…Ms. Powell is not just fighting against the swamp, rotten creatures and putrid water, all of it, … she is exposing the destruction of our notion of justice

    • Heika says:

      Beautifully written.

    • ARW says:

      I speculated about this in another thread. What appears to be happening is that Durham and crew are investigating what happened with Flynn and have most likely interviewed him several times. In that setting, with Powell as his defense attorney, they are documents. And according to cboldt, she can then use the information in her filings to Sullivan since it was legally obtained.
      Leaked docs are not legally obtained so the above is the only thing that makes. IMHO

      • Tess from Philly says:

        Excellent speculation. Thank you. The notion that a “good guy” was leaking the material was disturbing, but what you’ve stated makes perfect sense.

      • ILOT says:

        I agree ARW. My thoughts were a bit more strategic however, all IMO. I felt Ms. Powell saw weakness in the whole Flynn “process” and took it up as an assault on the folks she detailed in her book who exhibited the same MO. As the Horowitz “review” developed it became a flank if you will. With that we have the IG on the left flank, Ms. Powell on the right flank and Mr. Durham approaching with a frontal assault creating a near full circle of legally shared documents and paper trails. This leaves one option for the dirty players; retreat! All the while looking for one white flag. Someone, somewhere is raising a white flag IMO…who and how many?

I see the faces of our younger veterans every time I go to my local VA hospital for help. Volunteers who will surrender their lives for our country if need be!
      If my government does not clean out these vipers we will have more than a serious structural event, we will have a collapse of a magnitude that will be reverberating for decades!
      What General Flynn went through and is still engaged was known in my day as a “fragging” attempt.
      The Bureau should be more than ashamed. The DOJ should be ashamed.
      Those players who followed the wishes of Obama and who dreamed about a Hillary presidency should face Justice so that “trust might have a chance to be restored” in the minds of our citizens…if at all possible.
      I doubt anyone will ever lay a glove on Obama, but his vile ideology and contempt for the United States will be exposed via the records of history. At the very least, his “soldiers” should go down to extreme disgrace if at all possible!
      I have no doubt if the charges against General Flynn are dismissed President Trump will do his best to make the General “whole” again!

You just cannot give that kind of power to men and women and expect them to use it honestly when they think their cause is just and no one is looking.

  57. Bogeyfree says:

    Once normal Americans get their arms fully around what Sidney is documenting what happened to Flynn coupled with how it IMO also connects with the Russia Collusion frame job there should be MASSIVE outrage and demand for justice.
    EVERYTHING that the left, the FIB, the DOJ, the SC, the CIA and the media has said about Russia Collusion, DNC Server, HRC Server/emails, Seth Rich, PapaD, Flynn, PT, Ukraine etc. should all be questioned and examined by AG Barr and Durham.
    As the FACTS are suggesting a much, much different story than what has been propagated to the American people for the past 3 years!

    • Raptors2020 says:

      The question remains: why? Why go to these extremes? What made Flynn (and PapaD) oh so important? Were they (CIA, FBI, DOJ) jumping through hoops at the command of someone very important (Obama, Hillary); or even more frightening, is this their routine, quotidian contempt for the law and basic decency?

Andy McCabe is in some serious trouble, not buying for a second Lisa Page was editing 302s without her direct superior ordering her to do so, especially when we know there’s a feud between McCabe and Flynn over a previous matter involving Robyn Gritz – it will also explain why DOJ is slow burning his indictment for perjury – they’ve got more on his crook.

    • Your Tour Guide says:

      Anybody want to take bets on McCabe being the
      actual squeeze for Page? She never talks in a coy
      manner to Strzok in all their texts. But whenever she’s
      discussing “Andy” she positively swoons.

      • beach lover says:

        I have been skeptical for quite a while about the “lovebirds”. I think it was the FBIs way to keep a bunch of their text messages from being made public. Other than the one comment from Strzok saying “i love you”.. nothing can be construed they were. And that comment could be made in conjunction with just a friendly admiration. Afterall… they were both in cahoots in this up to their eyeballs.

  60. Will J. says:

    For the first time in quite some time I have hope that there may actually be some justice handed out. Powell is clearly being fed this material direct from inside the DOJ. There is no way she couldn’t be. This allows them to get this info out in court filings as others have stated which is really important in order to crush the Dems counter narrative of DOJ weaponization.

    Amazing that on 5/10/17 McCabe opens the investigation and on the same day the Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenas Flynn. Was Burr privy to the hoax or is this work solely the slight of hand of his twin Mark Warner? DiFi stepped down because she wasn’t willing to insert the knife and twist it. Warner, of course, is. We know of his contacts in GB. When the House of (Obama) cards begins to fall, Warner should be in the first batch. He is the Senate version of the worst of Schiff & Nadler.

    • Kristin DeBacco says:

      DiFi joined the group to buy the knife and then gave it to Burr and Warner and just looked on from behind the curtain. What a Senator to The United States…..

      • Jim in TN says:

        Don’t forget that Di-Fi had other entanglements she had to clear up. Not only did she have to clean up having had a Chinese Spy working for her for decades, she could not afford to have the two crimes entangled.
        Imagine if that had come out while she was conducting a coup against the President.

    • snellvillebob says:

      I believe Feinstein’s reason for leaving was because she released the transcript of Glenn Simpson’s testimony and then failed to tell Senator Grassley of it. After that, it is possible that she was pressured to recuse herself, as they did to Devin Nunes, and quit instead.
      The spy incident was very well covered up for at least 6 years and even the spy was happy with his pension.

      • dd_sc says:

        Feinstein quit the Senate Intel. Committee and moved to the Senate Judiciary. She leaked the Simpson testimony from a Judiciary hearing; then claimed she was jacked up on cold medication.

    • dd_sc says:

      Giving Feinstein too much credit for ethics.
      I think Feinstein left in order to get a member of the small group onto the Senate Judiciary Committee. They would have known hearings were possible once Trump was elected. Note that she was made the ranking member, even though it is Senator Leahy that is the senior senator.
      Indicates the Senate Judiciary Committee was clean as far as the coup and insurance policy was concerned.

  63. Niagara Frontier says:

    I know it’s been asked and answered before but I can’t get the thought out of my head this morning after reading this astounding piece of work by Sundance.
    If they can do this to the President of the United States and to a man of stature like Mike Flynn, what have they done to lesser names, and what could they do to the likes of you and me? It’s too chilling to even contemplate.

    • lolli says:

      Niagara, let’s ask Seth Rich…..

    • Deplorable_Vespucciland says:

      And realize that they couldn’t have gotten away with it without the assistance of a compliant press. One might even surmise that the media was actually in collusion with the deepstate coup plotters from the getgo. Recall how they noisily clamored for NSA Flynn to be fired for “lying to the vice president” about something in some phone call.
      Remember also how the crooked Press clamored for a Special Counsel to investigate the president after he fired the weasel James Comey. Said crooked journalists then went on for years about how our good president was a “Russian agent”. Trump was elected only because of Moscow’s interference, not 63 million brave American voters.
      Bottom line . . . fake news media is still the enemy of a free people.

      • Niagara Frontier says:

        I’m with you 100% but are any of the actions of the crooked press you described illegal, and if not, why not?

      • nhgardengram says:

        We have the power over the “fake news” by stopping our TV subscriptions, not buying newspapers, and not supporting their advertisers. We get the most accurate and timely news right here on CTH. Thank You Sundance. America FIRST!!

    • cboldt says:

      There are lots of cases. Waco, Rady Weaver, the scores of literal retared people set-up by the FBI to start down a bad path so the FBI can do a “terrorist bust.”
      That said, it makes more sense to unload the FULL weight of the government, from all angles, against a BIG target. You or I would not be hit simultaneously by DOJ, FBI, CIA, State Department, Congress and the press.
      That the government CAN do that against the president doesn;t mean it will do so against any one of us. They can get us with a single disaffected minion in say, the IRS.

    • ARW says:

      What I always find remarkable, is not that they did it, but that there are rules and processes and laws that allow them to do it and all they had to do was follow them. And, when they don’t support the objective, the rules and process can be so easily disregarded without consequences (I.e. appointment of special counsel under the guise of counterintelligence). There are no safeguards other than the ethics of those involved.

      • cboldt says:

        Exaclty – those inside the system knows the rules, exceptions to the rules, and its all one big happy club of them vs. the others.
        It’s a dirty business in fact. Anybody who has been inside for any lenght of time learns that and it just becomes “the way it is.” I’ve never been oin a case where one side or the other deserves to be Rule 11’d (civil case sanction against counsel), and it never happens.
        The system is adversarial by design, and the winner is the one who dares to walk over the edge.
        More rules won’t fix it, any more than more gun laws affect the criminals.

        • Kristin DeBacco says:

          cboldt: ” Those INSIDE the system know the rules…” They MAKE the rules for the “good” of the populace.

      • Kristin DeBacco says:

        ARW: Nothing to do with the Flynn case but your comment strikes home after reading: Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI. By David Grann.
        Rules, laws and processes that allows the government and local governments to act like Gods.
        A Must read.

    • Chip Doctor says:

      Niagara,
      That very thought is why many think that justice will never truly be served. If the Feds had gone after me for anything, I would file an appeal based on this. It opens a huge can of worms. It has to happen in order for the wounds to heal.
      Does Barr have the courage to turn over the apple cart? I hope so, because in the words of our President “this must never happen again”.

    • dd_sc says:

      I think that’s part of what DOJ is covering up.
      How many people are sitting prison – even actual criminals – because the FBI was abusing the FISC/FISA.

    • InAz says:

      I hope that every person arrested by the FBI who went to trial and then prison, start screaming about malfeasance by the FBI.

  64. Senator Graham should hire Powell as soon as possible. If not sooner

    • cboldt says:

      Graham is going to pretend this case doesn’t exist. His committee has oversight of FBI and DOJ, and he has been les than curious about how the Mueller persecution was conducted. He was the one who personally offered and advocated legislation to protect Mueller.

      • Blue Wildflower says:

        We received two letters yesterday with Graham’s name on it. He wants money for the senate campaigns. Unbelievable!

      I would rather that Lindsay hire Flynn’s last lawyers. That way justice can be done. ?

  65. Perot Conservative says:

    4:30 AM PST, can’t sleep! A tidbit we haven’t seen. Remember, follow the spouses?
    Who is Joe Pientka’s wife?
    “…The case is being investigated by the FBI’s Washington Field Office. Assistant United States Attorney Jonathan Fahey and Special Assistant United States Attorney Melissa Pientka are prosecuting the case on behalf of the United States”
    Has she helped keep his name redacted?

    • JL says:

      I’m pretty sure Joe Pientka is the quiet guy, that does what he’s told and keeps his mouth shut.
      Or so everybody in the FBI thinks.
      I’m pretty sure Joe Pientka has been talking for more than a year at this point.
      That’s why he doesn’t get called in for testimony, he doesnt get quoted in the media, we don’t know what he looks like, his name is always redacted, and Democrats basically try to pretend he doesnt exist.
      He has been directly involved in every major event from the Hillary email investigation to the present.
      What that guy knows can destroy all of these people.
      And I think he’s talking, if not an outright confidential informant.

  66. Kitty-Kat says:

    I’m glad that President Trump never morally abandoned Gen. Flynn. Whenever I’ve heard him talk about Flynn, he always spoke of him as a “fine man” and never pinned blame on him; instead he said that what happened to him was terrible.

  67. Doc Moore says:

    NICE. Lots of hard work, Sundance. But so what? You’ve created a speculation of how history might read if written by truth-tellers, but there are no truth-tellers. It makes no difference to anyone what happens… The Democrat Criminal machine will do what it damn well pleases. BARR will cover it up. The media will lie about. FOOLS will believe it. Nothing has ever nor will ever change except the names and faces.

    I’m sending this article and the link to this filing to Lindsay Graham. Please join me. He should be bombarded with it. Just bombarded.
    Lindsay, we know you KNOW. How outrageous that the powerful head of the Senate Judiciary Committee is swanning around talk shows, leaving the onerous work of exposing the truth and SAVING OUR REPUBLIC… to bloggers and private attorneys.

    • alliwantissometruth says:

        I want LG to know…WE KNOW.
        Our ignorance is vital…essential to him. LG has been perpetrating a charade and has believed that it suffices for his constituency and his “reputation.” He’s struggling a bit now…sensing the sleeping populace of SC is waking up and seeing this buffoon show for the dishonest treatment of us that it is.
        It needs to become apparent to him that his media “appearances” and histrionics are failing to continue to give him cover. This is about more than President Trump. This is about our Republic.
        Lindsay Graham, head of the almighty Senate Judiciary committee has the power and stature to destroy this Hoax but he’s AWOL. He’s a blowhard lifeguard, lamenting from his chair that somebody else should do something about that drowning man he sees.
        A private attorney has researched and revealed astounding evidence. But LG and his powerful,committee…gee, they know nothing…can do nothing.
        A civilian blogger has researched and revealed an astounding assemblage of detail and information…but thousands of PROFESSIONAL journalists…gee…they know nothing…can do nothing.
        They are comforted by the assumption of our ignorance. I want us to strip them of that. Let’s start with LG.
        Let LG know…WE KNOW.

        • Greeneghis Khan says:

          LImpy Graham definitely needs to be defeated in his senate re-election. Last time he ran was against an ex-con that had been caught with cocaine earlier in their life.
          We need a decent candidate to run against him.

        • Kristin DeBacco says:

          The more he appears on the talk shows, the worst it will get for him. I wish Hannity would not give Graham all that importance as he is sitting on his powerful hands and does nothing. ( and I wish they would stop giving Tulsi all that fake attention. Its a fundraising gimmick for her, that is very clear.)

          • Linda K. says:

            Lindsey actually was on Mark Levin’s radio show yesterday, for the first time in 16 years. Must be worried about something. Or he is trying to act like he is doing somethig besides sitting on his hands.

    This is a pretty big story,yet other than here I can’t find anything in the msm or on the tube this morning about this.

    • cboldt says:

      Most recent story I found …
      Michael Flynn insider narrative emerges in federal court documents – Washington Times – October 22, 2019
      Not a bad article, and it includes content from Sidney Powell letter to AG Barr.
      – In her letter labeled “confidential,” Ms. Powell made some frank comments about Judge Sullivan, referring to the court hearing that led to a delay in sentencing. –
      I think the press will blow this off, ignore it or bury it, pending the November 7 hearing.
      The press is maintaining the impeachment narrative, and undercutting Horowitz and Durham as “attempts to get Trump’s enemies.”
      Again Trump is not permitted to defend himself! It is so transparent.

      • Dixie says:

        Van Grack appears to be a pompous a$$ and just as dirty and corrupt as Weissman. I hope to see their reputations smeared and their means of making a living destroyed because I already know they will never spend a day in jail for the roles they played.

  70. amwick says:

    (in the conclusion, page 36) In addition to dismissing the case, she asks the Court to issue an order to show cause why the prosecutors should not be held in contempt. That seems like a convoluted way of saying that the prosecutors should “pay” for this… Consequences.

    • Niagara Frontier says:

      Contempt? I’m thinking more like there’s a need for permanent disbarment. That these monsters are still licensed to practice law (and some receiving government paychecks to do it) is totally unacceptable.

      • amwick says:

        Oh,,, I am with you on that.. but put this in context… She is really just pointing to a path, and saying please explain why we shouldn’t go there. She is suggesting one little step in that direction, and letting the court decide how far to go… I think the subtlety is brilliant, an example of lawyer-speak. The exact opposite of the TDS screaming libs…

        • Niagara Frontier says:

          Absolutely! I agree totally that her subtle approach might find favor with the judge. I was just expressing what I would like to see happen to these lawyers engaged in criminal activity. Disbarment would just be a start.

      • Kristin DeBacco says:

        Isn’t entrapment a criminal action?

      • mikeyboo says:

        If by disbarment you mean dismemberment, I’m with you.

    Sidney Powell is one of the great moral leaders of our time.

  72. rightmover says:

    BOOM BOOM BOOM?
    Big week ahead?

  73. ARW says:

    Powell did not fully “go there” on the events of Flynn’s FARA registration and previous counsel conflict of interest. She implied there were inappropriate things. so I’m guessing as she develops the argument, and at the right time and venue, we’ll hear a lot more about it.

  74. The Boss says:

      I’ve always said, the justice we all want to see, cannot be accomplished without a key conspirator or two flipping in order to ensnare the big fish like Comey, McCabe and Brennan. Those three must be in handcuffs!

    Today I celebrate 50 years of marriage to a wonderful man. I could not have received a better gift. I am now hopeful that I will see Justice in my lifetime. Thank you Sydney Powell. May God protect you and our VSG President Trump. And thank you Sundance.

  77. Bob Parker says:

    Tremendous commentary Gort!
    I devoured & loved every word of it!!
    Ya know, it’s about God-Damned time that PT’s DOJ has a little tag-team effort in play with Ms Powell & Gen Flynn. GOOD FOR THEM. GREAT FOR US!!
    The bad guys should not be the only ones that team up like this vs. PT. This strategy does seem to make it possible for Fed evidence to surface secondarily via Sidney Powell/Gen Flynn filings & form a sort of foundation for even more “goodies” to come to light over the next week.
    I still hold out hope that Gen Flynn is re-appointed by PT to a top-level cabinet position once he is fully exonerated with a key DOJ role for Ms Powell too.
    This is how you build unbeatable teams!!

    • boogywstew says:

      I can only surmise that Gen. Flynn would be suffering the effects of PTSD caused by this entrapment. I believe he will stay away from government work. He needs to reap a HUGE payday to help mitigate the financial and emotional damage he and his family have suffered.

  78. Bubby says:

    What this all exposes to me is the corrupt synergy between deep state Federal bureaucrats (FBI,DOJ,IC), the msm and the Federal Courts to target a political opponent! They can in concert destroy you, financially, politically, destroy your reputation, get you convicted/jailed and make you a pariah, make you unemployable! If you get caught up in this whirlpool of a police state you will go under. This same corrupt synergy is attempting to destroy President Trump to run him out of office and send him to jail like they tried to do to General Flynn! Think about that? Now that it has been exposed it needs to be destroyed, taken down or it will happen again. AG Barr and SP Durham hopefully will deal with the Federal bureaucrats. But how will the other two legs of this corrupt stool of political assassination be taken down? What Federal Judges will be impeached? What msm will lose their license and be taken off the air? What co conspirator journalists be tried for participating in the coup attempt? What will it take to rid the country of this leftist, globalist, deep state belief that they know better than us? Thank you Sundance without this blog I would know none of this! Godspeed Sundance!

    • cboldt says:

      Knowledge is power. Once you realize just how much the powers that be exploit your gullibility and trust, you are changed.
      The key to turning the coutry around is an awake public. The institutions dread that possibility. The press is key – NEVER trust it. NEVER. It has the most power to prevent an awake populace, and it is determined to regulate what and how you think.
      I got a bit of an awakening when studying cases. I’d go a layer deeper and read the cited cases to see what proposition they actually stood for. You’d be amazed at how intellectually dishonest some court opinions are. Case are sometimes cited (by judges) for the OPPOSITE of what they actually say.

  79. Phil McCoxwell says:

    Sundance, great article as usual. You are awesome. Just one thing I would suggest. In your article I would change “borderline criminal” to “felonious criminal” because what they did is absolutely criminal. I would give them no safe harbor. Not even a smidge. If any one of us modified documents to hide truths and presented them to the court under oath or otherwise, we would be in prison. Period. These criminal pieces of sh it need to feel the same jackhammer force of the law as they have imposed on countless numbers of innocent individuals over their careers. If any of these people walk free, this will happen again and again and our country is done. They all need to do hard time for a long time. The rest of these cretins left hiding in the shadows of the administrative state need to clearly understand what happens when they use their political bias to subvert our nations laws. I hope they are all putting their shi ting pants on right about now. Thank you for all you do.

    • Tall Texan says:

      I hesitate to quibble with Sundance’s command of facts and the English language, but I agree. I would change borderline criminal to blatantly criminal.

  80. JL says:

    The handwritten notes documenting Flynn’s interview are also revelatory.
    The funny thing is, when Strzok was interviewed about the Flynn interview to create that bogus 302, he stated that he (Strzok) conducted the interview while Pientka took notes.
    If we look at the exhibits 9 and 10, we find interview notes from BOTH Pientka AND Strzok.
    Pientka’s notes are about like you would expect, Illegible shorthand, that is only comprehensible to Pientka. Its clear he could barely keep up with the conversation, and the notes are very abbreviated without any detail.
    But Strzok’s notes….wow.
    Strzok somehow managed to write a detailed NOVEL, at the same time he was simultaneously conducting an interview of the National Security Advisor.
    Not only that, Strzok made ZERO mention of his own notes when he was interviewed months later about the Flynn interview.
    When did Strzok write these notes? My guess is he wrote them after the Flynn 302 was drafted, and made sure they supported the 302, in every detail.
    Pientka’s notes support nothing other than the fact that FBI interview notes are worthless, and fuel support nothing but corruption,

    • islandpalmtrees says:

      So true, but I have another question: what if Strzok was recording Flynn? Strzok does not seem to be a person driven by the rule of law.

  81. UncleGrumpy says:

    It’s time for David Ignatius to put his affairs in order. His life is about to quickly change forever.

    • cboldt says:

      The reporters inevitably escape damage. Their employers pay for any defense and DOJ protocol is to NOT demand evidence from reporters as to sources (the soruce here is a leaker), unless as last resport for essential material – see Judy Miller being jailed on contempt for refusing to divulge source.
      What Ignatious published was a leak that was not a criminal leak. The leaker is exposed to loss of employment and other administrative remedies, but not criminal charges.

      • UncleGrumpy says:

        If he agreed to do the “kill shot”, he is toast.

        • cboldt says:

          Only if “kill shot” is taken literally as an assassination. I think it is obvious that “kill shot” here is publication of a story that will lead to being fired. Flynn may have a civil case against Ignatious, but I see no criminal case.
          What that action does in the context of Flynn’s criminal case is show that team Mueller framed an innocent man. Maybe the court is cool with that.

      • islandpalmtrees says:

        True, but I wonder if this is grounds enough to prosecute the prosecutors?

  82. Another absolute Masterpiece of research, writing and analysis by Sundance. I would say he deserves some kind of prize but there is none out there that is worthy of him. I sincerely hope that someday Sundance puts all these articles into a book.
    Looks like Superwoman Sidney Powell is single handedly going to pull down the entire legal edifice of the corrupt Intelligence Community. She is one of the greatest and most fearless lawyers in the history of American Jurisprudence and someday we will look back and remember how she helped to save our great Republic. There are not too many people who would dare to “take the kill shot” on the loathsome Andrew Weissman, may he rot in hell.
    Meanwhile, when this is all over, I hope that the good General Flynn sues the hell out of his former attorneys for MAJOR (criminal?) MALPRACTICE and Negligence..

    • madeline says:

      When Sidney concludes the Flynn lawsuit, I hope she takes a vacation to a place she loves, and upon her return gets a great appointment of her choice to aid in the swamp draining.

      • old deplorable owl says:

        If she takes a vacation, it had better be to a place nobody knows she has even heard of. A place with no rowboats, no parks, no hunting lodges and no convenient dumpsters.

  83. cboldt says:

    A procedural note. This filing is called a “Reply.” It is the third in what is usually a series of three filings – a Motion by one side or the other, a RESPONSE by the other side, and then a REPLY to the RESPONSE.
    That sequence is not rigid, the government can move to come back, but in the usual course, the evidence is what it is, and those three steps is the written material (facts and law) the judge has to work with, to decide the initial motion.
    In this case, the judge has decreed there will be a hearing on this material before he renders his edict.
    The Motion Hearing currently scheduled for November 5, 2019 will now take place on November 7, 2019 at 11:00 AM in Courtroom 24A
    Stay tuned!

    • Tess from Philly says:

      Anybody know if the government can drop the charges at this point? Doesn’t it seem like it would be better for them if the judge never rules on this filing?

      • theoldzombie says:

        I don’t think they can since Flynn plead guilty. You can’t drop the charges on someone whose already been convicted. They would have to admit in court that they entrapped Flynn with false evidence in order to cause him to plead guilty. Doing that would immediately end their careers. Would be a good thing of course but I can’t see them doing that.

    • GB Bari says:

      Thank you cboldt for your guidance for those Treepers who are unfamiliar with the process.

  84. DeWalt says:

    Mrs. Powell’s Opus. I think when the Judge dismisses this, she will be hot on Wiesmans trail. To Sidney this is a search and destroy mission. A.W. has done so much damage to innocent people and the Justice System Mrs. Powell is going to leave ashes in her wake. This is the moment she was meant for.

    • Zorro says:

      I know she has better things to do but she should sign up for one of Herr Weissmann’s ethics courses.

      • GB Bari says:

        She should present evidence to the school of Weismann’s lack of ethics and that he is thus a smear on the school’s reputation.

  85. CrewDog says:

    I truly hope that Gen Flynn and anyone else victimized by the Traitorous Cabal can seek recourse in Civil Court to sue the hell out of ALL the Perps and ensure that they/families get to spend the rest of their miserable lives living in “A van down by the river”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXk3teJpzGU
    GOD SAVE THE REPUBLIC!!

  86. Bogeyfree says:

    So if they did 3,100,000 searches on Americans in 2017 alone, I wonder how many times Sidney was searched by the contractors in the past 12 months?
    A few hundred? Maybe a few thousand??
    It would be another great FOIA request.

  87. Shmuel Rosset says:

    Sidney Powell is unbelievable. Licolnesque.

  88. Bogeyfree says:

    So what is Sidney’s next case? How about…….
    1) The FIB contractor spying?
    2) The Hammer/Dennis Montgomery case?
    3) The DNC Server & emails getting to Wikileaks?
    4) Ukraine/Romania?
    5) Uranium One?
    There sure are some real plums out there for her to dig into.
    Make no mistake, when Barr is done doing his part, Sidney will be running the DOJ or maybe in the interim the FIB.

    • boogywstew says:

      She’s a defense attorney, first and foremost. Wasn’t a legitimate whistleblower to the Uranium One case treated similarly to Gen. Flynn? I see her staying with exonerating victims of illegal government entrapment. I believe this is her “calling”. I could see her helping build other attorney’s RICO cases just in the course of her defending individuals. I believe this whole ugly swamp is a form of racketeering with the main purpose of STEALING for personal enrichment from taxpayers, corporations and foreign governments.

      • mikeyboo says:

        Actually, I think it is more than desire for personal enrichment. When you read the text messages between Strzok and Page and the statements of Comey and Brennan, it is clear these people (and others who undermined Pres Trump), regard themselves as absolute heroes. If they were to be hanged, every one of them would die shocked to be so condemned.

  89. k4jjj says:

    This is all the work of Barack Obama. Flynn is THE major adversary of the Kenyan fraud so they had to go out of their way to smear and dirty him. Obama can never sidestep this corruption now. The wolves are nipping at his hate-America heels now. Obama apparently has a Middle East safe house which he will soon need to avoid extradition.
    How does all this corruption take place without Barack Obama in control? It doesn’t. He is the king rat. How many will throw their lives away to protect the king rat?

    • Zorro says:

      Why not throw your life away? After all he has dark skin pigment, doesn’t that trump all decency, morality, and integrity?

    • cboldt says:

      He doesn’t have to be in control, and he lacks the mental power to be in control. All he has to do is practice willful blindness and enable coverup.
      He knew what was going on, he did not object to what was going on, but he didn’t set it up. Too many moving parts. To me, this is like a terrorist operation with autonomous branches. Obama opened the information sharing floodgates and let nature take its course.

    JUICY! Now we get an idea of why President Trump has refused to bend to the calls of a pardon for Gen Flynn. Sidney Powell is truly a Master litigator. She very well may have saved us all!

  92. hokkoda says:

    I don’t know if anybody else remembers this, but didn’t Mueller delay notifying Congress of Strzok’s firing from the S.C. probe for months…until just after Flynn inked the plea deal?
    That also goes to intent. They knew, including Mueller, that if any of this came out before the plea that their case would collapse against Flynn, that the S.C. investigation would implode, and that there would likely be an investigation into their conduct.
    Timing is everything.

  93. dufrst says:

    Arrest them all for conspiracy to defraud the United States!
    With hopefully the Flynn acquittal, the forthcoming Horowitz IG report and the Durham criminal investigation, the Dems will likely accelerate the false impeachment timeline to blunt any impact of the unraveling this whole faux Russia conspiracy.
    The only person that can finally end these horrible series of injustices set upon the President and his supporters is Bill Barr. He has to investigate it all. He has to investigate the intelligence community, the media and the politicians like Schiff who were all involved!
    Honestly, I don’t know how Mueller and his rotten team ended up with the conclusions they did except for the appointment of Barr as AG. Once he was appointed they suddenly closed shop and the report essentially exonerated the President.
    What a crazy time we are in but I pray that justice prevails and all of the enemies of the President and our country get that they deserve!

    • Proud American from Texas says:

      And Schiff on the tube all the time, “I’ve seen conclusive evidence of collusion.”
      Swalwell just as bad. More reason to try and get PDJT. Trying to save their own butts.
      But even if they do, the investigation would continue, right?

      • Your Tour Guide says:

        Swalwell is the one people need to start researching.
        He’s the new kid on the block, not dug in long enough
        yet to make the big graft bucks. Tries WAY too hard.
        He’s not (yet) as accomplished a pathological liar as
        Schiff, but he’s trying hard. There’s gotta be some
        buried scandal on him, some financial irregularities.
        Have the feeling he’d wrinkle like a cheap suit if someone
        would care to do some research and come up with
        anything.

    • Kintbury says:

      I think the cat is out of the bag and I hear their witnesses are connected to the Atlantic Council which is sponsored in part, by Burisma. I think, they will quietly fade away. There will be such an outcry over this and The President’s support will sky rocket.

  94. Ausonius says:

    It is the greatest irony of our “Information Age,” that only a few thousand people know about or care about this story, out of our 300 + million population.
    And that it all depends on lone judge being honest…
    When will General Flynn hold his news conference to detail the blackmail operation against him by The Deep State? Does he dare hold one? And if he does, will it be offered to the population by The Deep State’s Ministry of Truth, i.e. ABC, CBS, NBC, etc. ?
    It is to laugh! And yet the enormity of this crime against a General of our military, blackmailing such a man, shows The Deep State’s overweening arrogance and its complete lack of morality, and this crime also demonstrates definitively the infinite contempt that The Deep State has for the military, for us, even for the very idea of an American nation.

    Before digesting all of it…I have to say: OF COURSE the bastards withheld all of that Brady material from Flynn / his counsel.

    • Spooky says:

      Sorry but I’m not buying what your selling here. All available evidence indicates Flynn was completely hoodwinked and entrapped by an FBI he naively trusted. Nobody puts themselves at risk of having their career, reputation and family destroyed just to smoke out some deep state plot years later. You are overthinking this and assuming some kind of 4th dimensional chess strategy that the facts don’t corroborate.

      • thedoc00 says:

        Exactly. One cannot apply what we have learned over the past 2 years about the DoJ and FBI in hindsight. At the time Flynn was entrapped and even the FISC received the FISA’s, we all had at least positive view of, if not blind trust in the FBI and DoJ.
        That blind trust and public image was (and remains at least for the lemmings) part of the shield the coup plotters counted upon.
        Now it is highly disturbing and criminal that the courts involved and Chief Justice Roberts have not stepped in to correct their errors. There would have been public back lash over the courts being hoodwinked (which would have subsided) but that is far better than the utter corruption that is now being exposed.

The best lawyer in the world can’t plan 1000s of steps exactly like that. I mean just in the Flynn file alone there are 130+ court documents and filings. I think/hope it’s turning out OK, but I think certain things have been fortuitous along the way.

      I keep seeing this “race” angle. It makes no sense to me. Schiff filing articles of impeachment dosn’t stop the DOJ, any more than Clinton being impeached stopped the Clinton Foundation.
      And likewise, arrest and charging Brennan, Clapper, Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Lynch, Yates, Rice, Power, Mueller, Rosenstein, Boente, Senators Warner & Feinstein, Schiff, and add a few of your own favories — that wouldn’t necessarily stop a DEM-directed impeachment process.
      The 2020 election is determinative of the path forward from there, but mostly the presidential election.

        This is where American’s find themselves today. This is where Trump comes to the rescue and with his fellow Trumper’s and defeat the enemy. It then gets back to law-abiders instead of law-breakers.

      • benifranlkin says:

        Ristvan a blogger here has said: Pelosi can’t outrun Barr. With yesterday’s announcement of the criminal investigation into Russia origin and all things 2016 and thanx to Lindsey Graham, the impeachment inquiry has been taken off the front page and the people running it already discredited for running another witchhunt. There will be no impeachment. Barr has won the race.

      • chojun says:

        The race is in the sense that Schiff is trying to hurry everything up so that he can frame Durham/Barr’s efforts as political persecution or a means of obstructing Congress or as some other kind of means of cover-up. Impeachment a year from now will be seen as a desperate, hail-Mary attempt at removing the President so as to both prevent the revelation of Government malfeasance and also to prevent his inevitable reelection. When the public learns of what the Democrats and their bureaucrats have been doing to Trump they will send him back to the White House in a landslide.
        It’s not going to work – the Barr/Durham/Horowitz trio is going to come to the table with a mountain of documentary evidence. Schiff has until now relied on secret proceedings and hearsay.

        • cboldt says:

          Barr and Durham will be framed that way, and indeed are framed that way, regardless of even the presence of Schiff’s charade.
          That race timeline is complete – Durham was tasked and found the evidence before the whistleblower came forward. Not that the timeline matters, the press will make up a narrative.
          Maybe I’m just dense in not seeing a “race” angle. I see two teams running for public acceptance. One or the other will have more on the day it matters, election day, 2020.

      • dufrst says:

        It’s political. The race is about political impact in the 2020 election. If they can impeach and remove Trump before Durham has arrested everyone, they can cast negative aspersions on anything Barr and Durham do in the aftermath.
        Even if they and NeverTrump don’t successfully remove Trump, impeaching Trump and dragging that process through can allow media to focus on the impeachment and trial than on the actual criminal investigations into the conspiracy and thus keep the public in the dark!

          Another proof of Uniparty in play is how Devin Nunes was treated by Paul Ryan v/s Adam Schiff treated by Nancy Pelosi. I don’t know if i should mention treatment of Peter King v/s Omar / Tlaib.
          We frankly need to boot all of the Uniparty GOPe in next election and get all Trumpian candidates to house and Senate. That is the only way to ensure equal justice system for all.
          As usual Sundance comes through for us and unfortunately the sheeple watching MSMs are completely in the dark about this revelations. I have not seen one mention of this on Ms Bartiromo’s shows or in any MSM in the 7:20am to 8:45am slot today.

        • rayvandune says:

          Don’t be so sure. It could get to the point that the only way for a Dem to get re-elected in 2020 would be to “vote their conscience”, and probably a few of them could claim that without actually smirking.

        It’s interesting because almost all emails or ads that appear to be from Trump if you click to donate it goes to Winred website. It seems shady at best, but my guess is the RNC is deceiving it’s donors by making it appear it’s going directly to DJT. That is why the RNC has collected so much in the last few months. They are swindling the Trump donors unknowingly. Pisses me off. This is a new change approved by the RNC. That’s deception at is finest.

      Don’t be naive, koda. Sidney Powell started with Sundance well over two years ago, researched other bloggers, networked with the conspiracy theorists of the airwaves, and applied her considerable knowledge and genius.

      and yes, all that is provable

      • hokkoda says:

        I think you’re wrong, dead wrong. She knows things that nobody finds out about unless they are specifically told…like the Mifsud blackberries…and direct quotes from emails that she does not have access to because the DOJ prosecutors have refused to give them up.
        She has an ally in DOJ, or possibly in Congress, feeding her information.
        Sundance didn’t have a clue about the blackberries until the rest of the community found out back in Sep/Oct, and I remember SD being shocked about this revelation.

    • hokkoda,
      “Powell’s level of insight seems to suggest someone at DOJ is feeding her data…”
      Possibly and almost certainly, but do not forget that Ms Powell is also regulalr reader of CTH and I believe Sundance has also played a huge role for Ms. Powell to connect lot of dots.

      • hokkoda says:

        Good for her, nice to have friends and know smart people. It doesn’t diminish what she is doing. My point is to illustrate the connective tissue that binds the Flynn case with the IG investigation with the Durham criminal probe. What we’re seeing the last 2 days is the AG sort of “tipping his hand” to show that these are not stovepiped events, but are all part of the same, larger, conspiracy. They are all working together, and the AG wants us to know that.

        Brady requires the government prosecutors in charge to share their evidence, which they have refused to do. She is getting her information outside of that chain.

    • Doppler says:

      I agree hokkoda. Things tend to be compartmentalized within DOJ by case and project. We know there was a whistleblower complaint that outed the Strzok Page texts early on, so various people within DOJ had to know about that, not just the IG. Speculation about who that whistleblower is includes Joe Pienka, the second agent at the Flynn interview whose 302 got edited and falsified. Someone leaked those texts to the press, but Mueller or Weissmann were able to keep them muzzled until Flynn pled. White hats have been doing their own leaking. Thank God for those white hats, whoever they are.

    • glissmeister says:

      She already knows. The greater scandal is Flynn got nothing special. What happened to Flynn is business as usual with this culture of lawyers. It’s the norm.

      No, I believe she was able to find this data on her client’s right to discovery. She is the first one to finally defend the man. God bless her.

      • hokkoda says:

        That doesn’t explain how she has access to emails that she is saying the government refuses to give her. They did not tell her about Mifsud’s cell phones, for example. There’s no way they would tell her that or (based on their court statements) even admit they are required to.

        • Kaco says:

          We don’t know if that status had changed. She can’t well submit things she hadn’t officially received. I don’t believe there is any secret feeding to her and it would be a big assumption without knowing all what’s going on in the case,

    1. Anyone uploaded the exhibits? I know the (probably) Pientka notes/302 are redacted. But the others?
    2. It’s a good motion, but I would really caution our side to declaring victory too early. There has been way too much readiness to declare victory, when this is much more of an ongoing fight. Powell has some decent stuff in there, but some of it is argument. It’s not all smoking gun stuff. We’ve had 3 years of “declaring victory” because it is more fun to keep the troops pumped up that way. But it’s not as useful for the amateur analyst crowd on our side.

          There is no “intel”. Have at it, enjoy all the links to left wing media, patriots have ditched Drudge. And we support conservative sites instead of giving Drudge clicks for revenue. Drudge needs to die now. Really, you might as well go to Daily Kos.
          And remember, you can just go to any MSM if you want to see “Government Party” in action. And like Sundance has said, the State Dept leaks to NYT and the CIA links to WaPo. So go there if you really want to see what the government saboteurs are saying.
          Otherwise, people go to Whatfinger or Citizen Free Press and now there’s another one, can’t remember the name. And they, like Sundance here, report what the MSM is saying anyway without giving the MSM the revenue, or the clicks. Support conservative and truthful media. There is no reason to support Drudge. Boycott.

    The fact that so many of these scumbags deliberately and strategically leaked to the press and discussed it is proof of political bias and scheming.

    In the General course of lawyering, the narcissist element in Weisman types has a dreadful visceral reaction to losing a case and losing a former win due to being overturned on appeal.
    I suspect Weismann tunes into this topic here and sees he has been exposed. Enron shows how the narcissist drove to get a false conviction and destroy the defendant. Mueller also had a 100 million dollar settlement attached to his big dirty deed case.
    The Team all knew Flynn was trapped and notes were fabricated. Just like Schiff participating with his Weasel Blower to fabricate charges.

    • Jim in TN says:

      Weissman should be happy. Hasn’t he turned his life over to helping free the innocent? /s

  116. Zippy says:

    “Already had relevant tapes” of the Flynn conversation was already discussed LONG ago on Dan Bongino’s podcast. He also pointed out that the timing of those Russians being kicked out of their “resort” in Virginia for spying was timed to Flynn’s being out of country so he’d be likely to make a call to Russia and the monitoring of his call would not be one originating from within the US and wouldn’t therefore be blatantly illegal.

        No way they dreamed this up in months. This took years of planning. Makes you wonder if this was a contingency plan for some time. Any threat to the status quo, and they would go into an international propaganda mode by abusing the surveillance state.
        As some have pointed out before, the “Russian collusion” narrative was actually created by Simpson (Fusion GPS) back in 2007!

        • Greeneghis Khan says:

          How about this is The Hillary Clinton Cabal aka Clinton Foundation and its Foreign beneficiaries that came up with this plan and was outlined while she was a State. It was intended to be against whomever was the GOP opposition in the General Election, and as has been stated here by others that most of the GOP front runners were under surveillance. It was Trump that won and got the full measure of their treasonous activities. I am sure it morphed on the fly as things played out in real time, but there had to be a core plan for using the system to knockdown the opposition from back in that period.
          Just a thought……

        • loteal2014 says:

          Somewhere on scribed is the democratic playbook for after the election. I believe it’s 53 or 83 pages long. It reveals what their goals are, and how the intend to make things happen. It includes taking out sessions, using media, Facebook, etc. it is interesting. I read it a long time ago and thought nothing of it, but if you read it now. They carried out all of their plans to destroy Trump and continue to do so. Here is a link.

    Once this all comes out and Americans fully understand the deceit and corruption, I hope someone takes a survey asking the following……..
    Do you trust our DOJ and FBI and if you were on a jury where the FBI presented critical evidence to a case would their prior track record now possibly affect your verdict?
    After all of this, my guess is 65-70% would say YES!
    Maybe the best way for PT to restore trust in the FBI is to appoint Sidney as the Director and make Wray the manager of the rest rooms.

    • Wray can’t even be bothered run a TIPS line to stop the murders of 17 schoolkids. What makes you think he can do honest work like cleaning a toilet?

    • toocoolus says:

    • Cynthia says:

      I don’t think Americans will ever be privy to the deceit and corruption; the democrat media will not go silently into that good night . . .

    • Doppler says:

      The reason the jury is there, and the defendant has the right to counsel, is to force the DOJ/FBI to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt to a random group of citizens. Once this is all fully exposed it will be harder to get convictions, but maybe that is a good thing. Each juror can assess in each case who are the lying liars asking for their vote, without prejudice either way.
      How Judge Sullivan rules on Sidney Powell’s motion will be just as important. He rendered a scathing opinion after the Ted Stevens prosecutors were exposed for falsifying Brady material, and earned a reputation for making an explicit order to disclose all Brady material routine when his criminal contempt order in that case was reversed because there had been no such explicit order.
      His opinion will be published and likely become famous in the law, as might appeal opinions that may follow.
      The process by which Strzok pal Judge Contreras “was recused” and Sullivan was chosen to replace him has never been exposed, to my knowledge. If Sullivan lives up to Powell’s apparent confidence he will do the right thing, it was a white hat somewhere who engineered his appointment, from somewhere in DOJ, the Judiciary, or, if Sullivan’s name was randomly assigned or was just “next up” on the case rotation, that white hat was somewhere in Heaven.
      As an African American, a Howard University graduate and Clinton appointee, he can universalize the outrage all citizens must feel when dirty cops and dirty prosecutors abuse their powers. Trump could pick up a fair share of African American voters, if this plays out optimally, because they have earned the right to a deep well of outrage on this topic, if Sullivan does what’s right and makes this universal, not Left vs Right..
      Prayers for Judge Sullivan along with Flynn and Sidney Powell.

        Actually, I think it’s safe to say that these criminals in government (of both the Dem and Repub variety) view us like the Nazis viewed the Jews–as you say “lower forms of life” that are meant to be exploited and discarded so they (the “superior” beings) can obtain and retain power.

      God works in mysterious ways. Perhaps everything is working out perfectly 🙂

    • yy4u says:

      Not sure the Repubs could have won the midterms.
      1-The Republican House and Senate DID NOTHING during the two years they full control. Unlike the Dems when they had the House and Senate and presidency. Instead Paul Ryan did his best to stop Trump and McConnell goes with the Swamp flow.
      2-Health care is a BIG issue for voters. Health care is too expensive. The Republicans ran on repealing and replacing ObamaCare and the House passed it knowing John McCain (or Flake or Sasse or Collins or Murkowski) would vote it down. McCain who had run on repeal and replace ultimately did the dirty deed.
      3. My rep LOST to a Democrat who claimed to be moderate. Scott’s FIRST ad was about how “independent” he was (code for not a Trumpian). I suspect many Trump voters stayed home.
      4. The RNC did not give ANY money to Corey Stewart (VA) running against Tim Kaine.
      He’d defeated the establishment candidate in the primary. The same thing they did to Roy Moore except in Moore’s case, they actively joined the Dems against him. Both would have been solid Trump supporters.
      5. RNC did not fund John James in MI who might have defeated Stabinow had he had some Republican support.
      6. No matter how many votes are found after the polls closed, the Repubs never ever challenge the election of a Dem. Not so the other way around. This should tell us more than anything.
      These are just the sabotages I know about. I’m sure Treepers know about a lot more. I think I read here that the RNC didn’t help the PA candidate either.
      In 2018, Repubs and RNC were working just as hard for the Dems as the DNC and Dems were.

      • Good list. Reading it is a great reminder that it really is The people vs. the government. Which in turn is an even better reminder that we do ourselves a disservice and put ourselves at a disadvantage when we make government bigger.
        Which in turn is the inevitable reminder of why our Second Amendment is so vitally important. (Now why is it that thought occurs to me EVERY DAY as I read these boards?)

    The democrat party was too stupid or arrogant to listen to Mueller. He saw this and much more coming, as he knows the veracity of his own case vs every bit of this information now being revealed. Mueller told the Democrats and that is why he tried to off ramp the who coup as a peace offering to President Trump and AG Barr. The one guy who is now waiting at the bus stop, beside Rosenstein, to be shoved under it now includes Mueller and these two are the wrong guys for Democrats to shove under the bus.

    I always thought Gen Flynn was more of Clapper’s trophy, and honestly didn’t really defend him much since his leadership style wasn’t the greatest when I worked ops in that arena. I was wrong. Gen Flynn has proven to have far more character than other officers I admired at the time…most notably Gen McCraven, who turned out to be an Obama lap dog.
    That said, I hope Gen Flynn sues these traitors for millions and retires to a good quiet life making up time with his children and grandchildren.

    I hope you will consider Sidney for this very important and critical position if trust is ever going to be restored with the American public.
    MAGA

      Agree! The only way!
      The FBI is rotten, reputations around the world damaged.

    • Tom says:

      absolutely – she’s done all of the barr bear’s work for him! and flynn for the next veep, or in claptrap’s old slot, and gabbard for DoD in a national unity government!

        Gabbard? As in Tulsi? Are you nuts?

        • KAR says:

          Tulsi criticized Trump for getting our troops out of Syria. Even though she keeps saying we need to get our troops out of Syria. Complete loop-de-loop. BONKERS!

      • nbkilgore says:

        Gabbard and Hillary are one in the same, they have a long running relationship and the proof is in the Podesta email dump. The cat fight is nothing but a show and it’s just unbelievable how people can be snowed so damned easy. Not picking up on the con jobs being pulled by the left is how we ended up in the crap hole we’re in, dig/research deeper and question everything. The cat fight is no different than HRC standing at a mirror hitting herself and Gabbard is doing the same thing, HRC is Gabbard/Gabbard is HRC! JSMDH!

    • Georgia says:

      Why is Wray still there? Terrible.

    • And for good measure, re-hire Michael Flynn as… hmmm, maybe Director of the CIA?

    • G. Alistar says:

      “ If Judge Sullivan accepts this motion and goes through all of this material I think there’s a pretty good chance he will dismiss this case.” SD. I think there are two other issues MORE important than Powell being appointed as the director of the FBI. 1. VanCrack and the rest of the cabal of corruption need to all be disbarred, arrested for criminal behavior with a $1 million bond…. a $5 million would be ok too. 2. For trust to be restored in the eyes of the American people, there must be the answer to the vital question: what did Obama know and when did he know it??? Accountability does not mean that if you are a democrat that you are above the law any more than LTG Flynn being a Republican means he is below the law.

    • fred5678 says:

      GREAT — let the (colluding??) ambulance chasers pay for Flynn’s suffering, not the taxpayers via a suit against the government!!!

      • zorrorides says:

        Fred, no – both FedGov and Flynn’s former lawyers must each pay in full. Flynn gets much money. Justice!
        Then criminal charges against every conspirator.

  145. Reading this and the Federalist post this morning, I wonder if anyone is looking into which of those “high-level” traitors met with Obama just prior to framing Flynn. You don’t just get simultaneously “weaponized” law enforcement agencies eager and willing to overthrow the President, and working together on it; you need the one man who could and did pursue it, could and did tell them to do it. Obama was Comey’s and everybody else’s object of “higher loyalty”.

    • Harry:
      Sidney Powell, in her court filing, alluded to this meeting with Obama on Jan. 6, 2017.
      As she detailed therein (paraphrasing): it was a briefing of President Obama (presented by Comey) on the nature of a particular ‘salacious and unverified’ document re Donald Trump.
      In attendance were: Obama, Comey, Biden, Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Clapper, Brennan.
      All major players. Remember, Sally Yates was Acting AG at that time.

      • swimeasy says:

        Agree donaldthegreat. I believe this was the meeting that Sundance had detailed where Susan Rice memorialized the discussion and Obama’s decree of ‘by the book’ as a ‘get-out-of-jail-card tactic if they were discovered.

  146. Sorry if it’s been mentioned before. Who do we think the redacted person in the text on January 23 part of her brief? RR? Everyone else is unredacted, why not this one?
    Also, I haven’t seen anywhere how Ms. Powell got these new texts released.

  147. Pokey says:

    “Attorney Sidney Powell has really done an excellent job putting this motion together with a mountain of incontrovertible supportive material to highlight how her client, Michael Flynn, was set-up.” Pretty much sums up everything. The person who has actually pursued the truth has been a lawyer from the private sector. Thank God for a few real Americans.
    Not one Bureaucrat in that stinking town has done anything worthwhile as of yet. Imagine that! The vast majority of our Government is staffed by people who spend their careers working at enlarging and perpetuating our Government and that crowd is used to getting all of the promotions for their ‘good work’. The only thing Bureaucracies know is that the Demcommie Party and its adjuncts in Big Media are the Big Supporters of the cause of Big Government. 🙁
    I really liked composing my last sentence. 🙂

    • Helen Pearson Souza says:

      I have admired Ms. Powell since reading her book on the Enron scandal. You could tell she was outraged by the government’s conduct then. She must have been super charged when she read this new scandal. Because so many of the original corrupt DOJ/FBI were the very same ones caught up in the Arthur Anderson scandal. That scandal she pursued to the Supremes and won multi million dollar settlements for those victims. I hope she does no less for General Flynn. Plus this time, I hope she can send some to prison and at least get them disbarred.

  148. Ms. Powell is trying to elucidate this evidence so clearly that the Judge will have to – HAVE TO – either logically dismiss all charges, with prejudice, or twist himself into ridiculous knots trying to rationalize not dismissing them.
    So, Judge. Are you going to be logical or are you going to be ridiculous? Hmmm

    • Matthew LeBlanc says:

      He is full blown Swamp so he will do what the Swamp tell him to do. It could be to cut bait and let this one go for the good of the Swamp. Maybe they tell him to dig in. Either way he is tied into it somehow or his big fat mouth wouldn’t have called Flynn a traitor in open court.

      • Mr. T. says:

        There is no way a finding of guilt by a judge or a jury would hold up in an appellate court. The judge needs to stop wasting the taxpayers money and dismiss the charge with prejudice. This dog and pony show has gone for far too long.

        • Matthew LeBlanc says:

          I agree but if Swamp thinks guilty plea stands helps Swamp for now regardless of future consequences (dismissal at appeal) that is what he will do.

      • Alan S Blue says:

        1) Emmet G. Sullivan hates *hates* prosecutorial misconduct. (He’s famous for it)
        2) He went on the “Traitor” rant, took a break, came back, and immediately apologized something like “I must have misread the dates.” Meaning he thought Flynn was still active duty -and- taking money lobbying for Turkey. (AKA: direct Treason) But … the dates were wrong. (Not treason to do precisely that as a private citizen) The -press- locked on the rant and spread it far and wide.

      • DJ says:

        ” Either way he is tied into it somehow or his big fat mouth wouldn’t have called Flynn a traitor in open court.”
        ———————————————————————————————————————-
        Yeah, I was following the tweeted semi-live courtroom reports that day and was pretty stunned when he did that. But he did walk it back after taking a break that day. And he may very well be swamp, I don’t know. But he did go hard after prosecutorial misconduct in the Ted Stevens case in which some of the same government lawyers were involved.
        But what if there was another reason for Sullivan stating that?
        Flynn was pretty much set to be sentenced that day and Sullivan asked him a couple times if he’d like another delay and Flynn kept saying no. I think Flynn, at that point, just wanted to get the whole thing behind him. But then Sullivan hit him with the idea that based on the information he had in front of him, he might sentence Flynn to prison time, not probation. And then the comments about being a traitor were thrown.
        Then they took a break in the proceedings. It was after the break that Flynn finally agreed that, perhaps another delay was in his best interest and he took it.
        So what if Sullivan hit Flynn with the traitor thing – knowing that as a retired general, it was about the worst thing Flynn could be accused of – in order to, basically, coerce Flynn into taking another delay.
        Why? Because maybe Sullivan had suspicions that the case was bogus – due in part to the government characters involved – but could not at that point toss the case out because of having no hard evidence of such a thing. And he wanted a further delay in order that perhaps, somehow, someway, such evidence would be presented to the court.
        And along came Sidney…
        Yeah, I know, probably less than one chance in a billion that this could be why, but it was a thought…

        • G. Alistar says:

          This is a fight of epic proportions, Winston Churchill noted that, “truth is so precious in wartime that she must always be provided a bodyguard of lies.” I don’t think it so outlandish at all. we’re you to tell me half of the corruption at FBI and DoJ several years ago, I’d say you lost your mind. Now, I’m convinced that the swamp is real and was lead by Comey, Brennan,Strozk and Page….and it all leads to Obama. The most corrupt or most inept POTUS in history!

        • fabrabbit says:

          I know everyone is calling Judge Sullivan “swamp“ because of his Treason tirade against General Flynn. But it seems to me he has been fair in his handling of the case. If he hates prosecutorial misconduct he will dismiss the Flynn case. Sidney already asked for dismissal (IIRC) so he could do so before the Nov 7 court date. But I’d love to see what the govt lawyers come up with then.

      • noswamp says:

        Maybe he was just playing the game when he called Flynn a traitor.

    • OmegaManBlue says:

      It’s all on the judge now. Sadly lots of judges let this type of thing go on in their courtroom unpunished. They only care the case reaches a conclusion.

    • Brant says:

      And the best thing is, it’s a public record document. We see what he sees. What ever will he do?

    • mikeyboo says:

      cheering4america, I think the choice is far more stark: Judge, are you going to be CORRUPT AND A TRAITOR TO OUR CONSTITUTION or are you going to be an honest patriot?

    • neal s says:

      I hope it is a race between the prosecution dropping all charges, and the judge dismissing the case. If for any reason, those in charge of these prosecutors will not let them drop charges, then I suggest those prosecutors resign.
      Contempt of court should be the least of what happens to the corrupt prosecution.
      Flynn may not be perfect, but in this case he seems to have functioned as a lightning rod which has drawn a bolt which makes clear the corruption infesting much of the FBI and DOJ and other parts of the executive branch.
      Many thanks to Powell for her brilliant work. I hope that PDJT may some day honor her for her work.

  149. Mike in a Truck says:

    Once Ms Powell is done with these creeps, Flynn should have her go ahead and sue his former lawyer(s) for bring incompetent deep state hacks.

  150. Some old guy says:

    If Powell’s characterization of the events are determined to be accurate, then this type behavior SHOULD BE criminal even if it isn’t currently – wow!

  151. NJF says:

    Thank god for Sidney. What I’d like to know is were flynns original lawyers in on it.
    Consider how quickly she got to the heart of the matter.
    Remember McCabe, “first we F Flynn, and then we F Trump.”
    The script has flipped, “first we exonerate Flynn, then we F them all.”

  152. Kleen says:

    Who gave our favorite Attorney, Ms Powell the new information?
    Barr?

    • justlizzyp says:

      Wondering also. Most of what she is showing seems to be derived from very thorough searches of public information, and my hat is definitely off to her for her superhuman efforts. But that is part of what she is arguing is the problem – she had to gather all this information from sources other than the prosecutors, who are legally required to give it to the defense. Hard for them to argue that it was classified if it was in the WaPo. So in a way all their leaking came back to bite them in the bum.
      But the cell phone detail…how could she have known about that?
      She is absolutely crushing this, though, and I am in awe of her courage and tenacity.

    • benifranlkin says:

      Maybe…and I am wondering what’s to stop Barr’s DOJ from dropping the charges altogether on Flynn now and allow Flynn to sue the DOJ for damages?

    • Is it possible that much of it came from the Prosecution – in answer to her specific demands for Brady material? Much happened “under seal” until recently.

  153. Coast says:

    My impression is that his prior team of lawyers were “in on the game”.

    • DonaldsonLJ says:

      They ( Covington ) were and the minute the FARA matters that they had advised General Flynn on became the subject of legal proceedings, they were by professional requirements, obliged to recuse with immediate effect. This did not happen. The charade continued to the detriment of General Flynn. Thank God for Sydney Powell.

      • mikeyboo says:

        “Thank God for Sydney Powell.”
        Amen and Amen!

      • American Heritage says:

        It’s encouraging to know that there are still brilliant, ethical people in this country who are courageous enough to stand up for justice against the formidable enemies of the people and the Constitution. Brava, Sydney! All Americans owe you a huge debt of gratitude.

    • jeans2nd says:

      Single-handedly? Seneca, are you serious?
      C’mon, Seneca, you’ve been here a while, you know better.
      Sundance did the original research, and Attorney Powell has been here more than once.
      Someday ima write a post on Sundance’s original work on all this, and all the others behind the scenes that contributed.
      The cast of characters would make the entire Swamp call for their feinting couches.

      • The Demon Slick says:

        I think Sidney Powell has a source within the government. She knows what to ask for, she seems to know exactly what’s missing when the government does produce documents. I’m sure she does read Sundance. And technofog. And probably that blonde chick Lelilla or whatever. But based on her actions, she sure does seem to know things that they never said. And let’s give General Flynn some credit too, he’s a smart guy.

        • Exfiltration of Wealth says:

          She not only reads here, prior to her becoming counsel for Flynn, she posted here. And I, like many can’t wait for her to start doubt do again.
          I wanna know “who’s next” on her list of defendants!

      • jeans- the word “single-handedly” was not to be taken literally! As you know if you’ve read my posts, I am one of Sundance’s greatest fans. He is truly one of my all time Heroes.

        • MaineCoon says:

          I knew what you meant because I used it too. She was the one in the courtroom, on the front line. No question she read all of Sundance’s research, but she has was front line and center against the government in a courtroom.How lonely is that.

    • dd_sc says:

      Inspector Generals use to be objective 3rd party oversight.
      Like everything else in DC, they’ve gotten kind of swampy the last 40 years or so.
      Obama went most of his first term without IGs in critical positions – like the State Department.

  157. trapper says:

    It occurs to me that Durham, and therefore Barr, know all of this already. Although it is being reported that Durham is conducting a criminal investigation, what we DON’T know is at what point in time it became a criminal investigation, who they are looking at specifically, or who they have turned already.

    • The Demon Slick says:

      My opinion, and it’s only that…. It’s been a criminal investigation for a while. I believe that its bubbling up now because when Durham is requesting interviews with Brennan, Clapper, et al, he’s not going to try and ambush them like the fbi scumbags did with General Flynn. He’s probably notified them that they are the subjects of a criminal investigation. Notify them of their rights. Allow them to prepare and to obtain counsel. You know, normal procedure. Due process.

    • justlizzyp says:

      It occurs to me that yesterday was a coordinated effort. We had the letter from Horowitz, which essentially reassured that the FISA report was NOT being deep sixed. We found out that the Durham review is now a criminal probe. For the first time, Flynn’s defense team was allowed to release something without the DOJ redactions.
      Horowitz’s letter, stating that he expects minimal redactions and does not anticipate having to present two versions, means that any additional redactions that Wray or anyone else tries to slip by will be very noticeable. There was chatter all night about how ‘it is my understanding that the Horowitz report will make clear why Durham’s review became a criminal investigation’ something I heard in multiple reports.

    • Perot Conservative says:

      Right out of the gun Barr knew it was fishy, at his Congressional confirmation he said spying went on, the only question was a proper predicate.
      It could have been criminal for months, they only had issues if someone decided not to answer questions.

  158. Brant says:

    Comments previously on how maybe Sidney Powell got the info (legally) and what questions to ask in her filing was that Barr and/or Durham questioned Flynn (with Powell as defense attorney). They ask the “right” questions and she gets the stuff in a standard legal setting.
    I think I read that from a comment correctly.

  159. Phil aka Felipe says:

    Sidney Powell pulled the pin and lobbed a live grenade into the Judge Sullivan’s courtroom. Gonna be interesting to see how the Judge, Van Grack et al deal with it.

  160. this letter from Sir Mark Lyall Grant interests me the most: From the filing: ( I think this is the basis for a grand unravelling)
    “1:17-cr-00232-EGS Document 129-2 Filed 10/24/19 Page 34 of 37
    31
    Mr. Van Grack knows about this letter, and he questioned people about it. He may have
    seen it and have a copy of it. It was written by the United Kingdom’s National Security Advisor,
    Sir Mark Lyall Grant, and hand-delivered January 12, 2017, from the British Consulate to the
    incoming National Security team in New York. It was not classified. Protocol dictates that it was
    also provided to the then active national security advisor—Susan Rice. This was two weeks before
    the pretextual interview of Mr. Flynn, and it eviscerates the credibility of Christopher Steele whose
    false and unverified assertions mention Mr. Flynn and were used by the FBI to obtain illegal FISA
    warrants that likely reached the communications of Mr. Flynn. It undermines the entire “Russia
    collusion” fable that Comey, McCabe and others used to justify their unlawful conduct. Ex. 7.
    (two pages of Steele dossier). In fact, that letter alone should have mandated termination of the
    FISA warrant, which was wrongly renewed twice after the Grant letter was delivered—including
    once for the wrongful benefit of Special Counsel. Anything obtained as a result of that warrant
    would have to be suppressed and could not be used against Mr. Flynn.”

    • The Demon Slick says:

      Who poisoned the Russians in England? Christopher Steele’s investigation blamed Russia. Putin. Now we know he’s a huge tall tale teller, someone should take another look.

    • maggie0987 says:

      I just re read a year old Huber tweet where he speculated that the UK link was a man called Charles FARR –
      https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/989243767084503041.html
      Maybe Farr had been working with the US swamp re Steele but, after the inauguration, Lyall Grant got in touch with the new Nat/Sec Advisor, Flynn, to set the record straight re Steele and Farr misdeeds and lack of reliability etc.
      As we know, this letter was also given to Obama cabinet holdovers who then immediately went after Flynn. Much more unraveling to be done.

  161. MaineCoon says:

    It’s Sidney Powel who will clear Mr Flynn’s name, will take down the small group co-conspirators, will implicate the entire corrupt media as complicit in the seditious conspiracy, will implode the entire Meh Russia hoax, and all that goes with it, including Meh Impeachment hoax.
    Singlehandedly.
    Will they go to jail, AG Barr? Mr Durham?
    The Great Sidney Powell is still Great.
