UPDATE: Judge Sullivan Postpones Hearing on Flynn Brady Material…

Following an extensive 160-page filing by Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell; including extensive exhibits to support her motion to compel Brady material; Judge Sullivan has now delayed the previously scheduled November 7th hearing on the motion(s).

Generally this delay is good news as it provides the Judge more time to review the rather extensive list of exhibits presented by the defense.

Hopefully, the pending inspector general report on the DOJ/FBI FISA abuse issues will be released prior to the next hearing.   There is a possibility that IG report will contain background material on FBI and DOJ misconduct that will be supportive of the defense case highlighting how Flynn was set-up.

        Weisman has been seen lately at the CVS drug store stocking up on lube. He was told there is no lube in jail and Big Bad Bubba is waiting for him. Seems this isn’t the 1st time Mr. Weisman has tried to pull the wool over the blind-when-needed-to-be Justice Sullivan. Maybe this time the Judge will finally have had his filled of being played like a typical house slave to the democratic party.

          For all that Weissman has done in his career as a prosecutor and especially for his roll in this disgusting Witch Hunt / Not-So-Silent Coup, I really hope he goes down in a spectacular ball of flames.

            I don’t think your take is realistic, hopeful, dream-full…but not realistic. Weissman, like Schiff, are soldiers for the “progressives” in today’s political arena. They are the heroes, not the villains, meaning those on the left, democrats and their media propagandists only wish to celebrate and protect their leading warriors.

            Do you think Horowitz’s report will lead to their indictment? Do you really believe those two angry men will be brought up on charges by Durham, face trail and be convicted?

            They will continue their war to the bitter end. And what will be the bitter end?

            Now you must look to the opposing side, the republicans. Do they inspire you to reach your wishes? Name the leaders (who have real power) on the republican side.

            The only real leader on the republican side is…wait for it…President Trump. He stands alone with few others and those others are not the leaders in Congress, they are vocal players who could be leaders, but presently they are not.

            Trump is being swarmed, seriously swarmed by a mob of progressives, much like those who booed him at the baseball game. A vicious man was killed, the leader of ISIS yet Trump gets booed.

            That is what you are up against. We will see how many republicans come to war joining Trump on the front lines as opposed to staying in the shadows mumbling things, but doing nothing to…win!

            Winning is what Trump is all about, putting men to work building their lives for success.

            Lots of men don’t even understand that reality…maybe too many who also vote.\

            My best advice: Gird your loins for the coming real battle. Our side is filled with powerful snakes…find them fast, get rid of them and then keep going forward against the “progressives” who are, in reality “regressives” for our Country.

              Hi RJ-IMO your comment is spot on. No one is going jail…and all this talk of rope and lead, is just that, talk. IDK, but did Judge Sullivan REALLY need to delay this hearing? We’re not trying to verify the discovery of a new chemical compound/element here. The facts are pretty clear-the delay is to find a way NOT to send any of these traitors to jail. I expect a LOT of feigned outrage, etc., but in the end no one is going to jail except maybe Flynn. I sense that a lot of Americans have no clue a coup is taking place.

              The left is playing for keeps, while our side acts like they expect this to all just go away somehow. They are determined to see our POTUS gone. Full stop

                The prosecution can always pull the case, and they will then avoid scrutiny, and avoid the need to make disclosure.

                The prosecution will need to make a decision as to whether the gig is now up, in the light that Ms. Sidney Powell obviously has a good relationship with someone high up in the DOJ, who is feeding her inside information.

            Yeah, I went to check the docket on Pacer, and the hearing was “cancelled,” after having been “changed” maybe three times in the last couple months. In my experience, it’s unusual to cancel a hearing with pending motions undecided, without resetting it. What’s next? That’s not clear. Within the last few days AUSA Deborah Curtis withdrew from representing the US because she will no longer be working for the DOJ. And there was some sort of stipulation as to redactions. A mystery. Sidney doesn’t appear worried or puzzled! Maybe proud of the “comprehensive” comment. Maybe the Gummint is in the process of condeding, but everyone wants to keep that under wraps?

              Good point on “comprehensive” — because let’s face it, that description only applies to ONE side. So, can reasonably be read as a tell.

              I would think rules of procedure put some boundaries on what the judge can “wait” for, e.g. the idea above that he’s waiting for the IG or Durham report. Strictly speaking, that shouldn’t happen — judges act on evidence on the record; they don’t sit back, aware of possible things out there in the universe that MIGHT be presented to them later. As a practical matter, I’d guess Sidney is poised and ready to file it as additional evidence whenever it drops.

                “Only one side” doesn’t accommodate the possibility that a grand jury is investigating the prosecution team for abuses and crimes in this very case, and that its prosecutor has made filings with the judge that are not disclosed on the docket because of their privileged grand jury status, but that “comprehensively” throw in the prosecution’s towel, make all Brady materials available to Judge Sullivan, and give him an opportunity to exercise Article III (Judicial) power in forcing DOJ to publicly disclose all of the hidden evidence of the schemers’ schemes, the liars’ lies, the deep state’s deep stating, the criminal contempt subjects’ contemptible behavior.

                “Cancelled” without rescheduling or stating what is next leaves open the possibility that, what’s next is indictments of the prosecutors, maybe even guilty pleas by one or more of them, who have flipped and will tell all, not just about Flynn’s prosecutors, but damning the coup leaders for all their sins.

    I’d like to believe Judge Sullivan will do the right thing, but the judiciary has made it VERY clear that they support the progressives/liberal/extremists who want to do away w/the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and our liberty and freedoms. In other words, the judiciary no longer rules on laws but on social justice propoganda. They could care less that Gen. Flynn was set up by OVomit and the Deep State, including and especially McCabe, Mueller & Weissmann.

    Judge Sullivan has already called Flynn a traitor when he misunderstood the facts surrounding Flynn’s dealings with Turkey businessmen.

      I wouldn’t immediately take the party line on the “traitor” comment.

      Recall that in that Dec 2018 hearing, Gen. Flynn was accepting his fate and the prosecution’s lies by submitting to a sentence; after the judged intoned the seriousness of what Gen. Flynn was essentially assenting to, Flynn immediately did a 180 and sought delay, fired his lawyers and hired Sidney Powell. The rest is history.

      A judge can’t rule on arguments and motions that aren’t presented to him. I thought at the time, and continue to suspect, that Judge Sullivan thought even then that the charges and the plea deal stunk to high heaven, and he essentially was goading the defense to get off the mat. It’s an adversarial system, which means a judge can do a lot, but also needs the side of righteousness to fight for itself. You can’t rule on motions and arguments that haven’t been presented.

          then you can put some of their actions in perspective- clearly there is a deliberate attempt, and tactics by some in the Left State-run Media to create Fear, Uncertainty, and Distraction. AKA The Pelosi Wrap Up smear, and they believe they can re-use that over and over- Muh Russia to beat Trump, Muh Obstruction to get the Mueller SP, Muh Ukraine, to deflect from Biden/Kerry/Pelosi offsprings corruption and nepotism, and the all hands on deck fight to prevent HRC being caught in email/Clinton Foundation bribery, etc,
          and the all out effort to defeat Barr on FISA gate now… then you can understand the tactics dont change much- and put into perspective whats happened to 90% of the US MSM, who have chosen sides- much as they did in the 60s and 70s- romantically seeing themselves as heroic- “The Years of Living Dangerously”…hmmm.

          Dezinformatzia is a central tactic of soviet style propaganda- and if you recall whom the Left idolizes, and has used for guidance on the ground- Alinsky was HRCs college thesis topic and advisor, Bill Ayers was Obama’s mentor/handler/bag man, with ValJars help in office…then this is purposeful, and will continue-

          and then remember the dictum that power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely- for money and control- thats where we are with uprooting the Deep State institutional Left in DC and NYC and SF/LA/Silicon Valley in particular, where their infowar via search and free speech censorship is underway.

          follow the money trail to sympatico leftists- Soros, Bloomberg, Steyer, the Evil Google Twins, etc.

          then you can see just how big a fight we are in, here, for America.

    1. Flynn case dismissed with prejudice for prosecutorial misconduct.
    2. Prosecutors cited for contempt of court and referred for disbarment..

        I’m not sure Sidney’s huge filing is incredibly hard to digest. Large, substantive filings aren’t necessarily more labor-intensive than smaller ones, and “comprehensive” filings can make things easier than filings with odd gaps and unreconciled evidence. Sidney dished it up on a platter, which makes a judge’s job easier. And when the other side basically sits pat on its original anemic filing — that makes things even easier still. What’s hard is when each side delivers substantive filings that engage the other point by point, which means the judge has to do the same, deciding each material point along the way and (in principle) explaining why one side prevails over the other in a way that addresses all evidence and arguments presented. When only one side shows up (so to speak), and delivers a “comprehensive” filing, it actually can make things easier.

        Interested if Ristvan agrees. But one way to look like it is Sidney delivered a fastball up the middle with no one in the outfield.

        Ms. Powell is just reminding Judge Sullivan (in a very nice way) that she has written one popular book about government malfeasance, this case has intense public scrutiny, and she can write another book which will have even more general public readership and trust.

        Unlike ristvan, I cannot understand why Judge Sullivan would not have a Hearing (even if he has decided to rule to dismiss the case, and discipline DOJ prosecutors) to get answers to specific questions DOJ declines to answer in briefing, and compel answers on the record. And confirm for himself the correctness of whatever he has decided. Cancelling a Hearing rather than postponing it, suggests a desire to avoid public proceedings, and a desire not to risk being surprised or interfered with…which is not a good sign IMHO.

        Sidney Powell “keeps coming up with new, embarassing stuff” that is VERY hard to cover up, ignore, or otherwise deal with. Perhaps Judge Sullivan does not want Powell to surprise government prosecutors at a recorded Hearing, with even more problems and evidence of public interest? DC Circuit Judges are in the most political venue and heart of “deep state” jurisdiction, so are almost by definition more appointable if they can be relied on to not rock the government boat.

        If Judge Sullivan dismisses the case, or orders production of records, there is no timing delay issue, except for “deep state concern” about boat-rocking. But if he denies or limits the motion for records, or otherwise supports the government prosecutors, his decision could be upended by horowitz, or more likely Durham. A subsequent finding that the FISC spy warrants were illegal, that attack on General Flynn was part of an ongoing coup, that the CIA/FBI/DOJ executed a concerted plan to entrap General Flynn and falsify his interview records, and threaten his family to compel a false plea. Perhaps Sullivan is concerned about “protecting” judge contreras, who may have improvidently signed one of the “spy-on-Flynn” warrants, and was apparently recused by other than his own action.

        Cancelling this Hearing is unusual, as is the whole Flynn attack and prosecution.

    My guess is prosecutors have asked for case to be dropped. Due to Powell’s rather convincing documentation. Also – to avoid contempt punishments and disbarment for their own misconduct – Not to mention that the government probably wants to avoid providing Brady evidence; as it would be too damaging to our hallowed institutions and would expose the dirty ways law enforcement has been operating and upending the basic rule of law.

      After Powell’s motion it is in the prosecution’s interest to have the case dropped. If Flynn goes to trial there will be an avalanche of further leaks put on the public record in additional defense motions. It will not be drip-drip-drip, it will be the dam breaking and FBI / IC is desperate to prevent that. The Powell motion was a strong signal to them to give up now Or Else.

          It appears the fbi has been caught in yet another scandal- the purposeful collusion by SES appointees on the 7th Floor to attack those who wont play along…Flynn, first, for daring to defy Obama on several topics.
          Just as FBI and CIA took out Gen Petraeus when he wouldnt play along on Benghazi.

          But the FBI has its own dirty laundry,and despite the hard work of 15, 000 dedicated Special Agents and Analysts, the corrupt management at the top misuses it for power.
          (remember that some time ago the FBI adopted the British Army Staff model- officers could branch out to manager vs street agent, to advance- thus creating a Mandarin class who get along by going along, playing to the Palace at Quantico and the 7th Fl.)

          I would imagine Sidney Powell knows this as this occured about the time the FBI departed its traditional recruiting from within experienced street cops and investigators, and military, and started recruiting lawyers and cpas straight from college to staff up white collar crime.

          Eventually enough turn to suckups, and lawyerly coverups- and float to the top, Strzok, Page, Baker, Priestap. Honorable agents have seen this for a decade, call themselves “dinosaurs” and many have now retired, in disgust.

          ristvan: “Dems have really taken us into uncharted swamp lawfare territory. Deliberately?”

          IMHO, the actions the Democrats in threatening President Trump with impeachment are are part of a deliberate strategic plan for gaining as much political leverage as possible before the 2020 election.

          The Democrats will pass fast track articles of impeachment directly from the floor of the House in the expectation that the Republicans will challenge the articles in the courts and that the Senate will refuse to take up the articles for a trial until the courts have ruled on their constitutionality.

          One of the Democrat’s main objectives is to thwart the president’s nomination of a successor to Judge Ginsburg should she pass away before the election. The other is to energize and motivate their voters to come out in November in the same numbers that twice elected Barack Obama.

    I posted this on the other thread but it applies here as well.

    This earlier posting of the article from Oct 25 at the Gateway Pundit by Larry Johnson does give me some hope that SOMETHING has changed very recently.

    Here is the condensed version to the article but worth the read.

    “I do not believe in coincidence. I do not believe that it is a mere coincidence that these three events occurred late last night:

    1. The investigation of the roots of the plot to destroy Donald Trump and his Presidency is now a criminal matter.

    2. A letter from Inspector General Horowitz announcing that his report on the FISA fraud would be out shortly with no major redactions.

    3. The Government caved to Honey Badger Sidney Powell and allowed her to fully expose criminal conduct by Michael Flynn’s prosecutors.

    What is going on? Two words. Bill Barr.

    The Attorney General has pulled the trigger and altered the landscape in the Russiagate saga. Having been granted full authority by the President to declassify information, including intel from the CIA and the NSA, he has now acted in a powerful, but low key way.

    The announcement that this is now a criminal investigation means that anyone, including FBI agents and CIA officers, who try to hold back information or hide information will be vulnerable to obstruction of justice charges. Criminal penalties attach.”

    Now we get the hearing cancellation and all of this seems to lean or support what Ristvan said above.

    Now if Ty Clevenger posts here and says that in his Ed Butowsky/Seth Rich case that the FBI is now cooperating with his FOIA request then I think Larry Johnson, Ristvan and many just may be on to something.

    Based on all I have read, Flynn was most definitely set up by corrupt FBI agents and prosecutors that were trying to frame Donald Trump. Everything points to that. Mifsud, Halper, Downer, Azra Turk, the comments of Strzok, the manipulated 302, and on and on. Flynn should not be charged with lying to investigators. He said he didn’t remember if he spoke to Kisliyak as he spoke to many leaders at that time as part of the transition.

    They don’t even have any evidence that hasn’t been tainted.

    Interesting that the government has not given up yet. They clearly could have dropped the case but they insist on pursuing it, knowing it is weak at best. They only have a confession based on manipulative methods, lies, and forged documents. That should never stand in a court of law.

    I fully predict the case will be thrown out. What the Judge may do to the real perps here, the prosecutors, remains to be seen. I have seen where swamp people tend to drop this stuff so as to avoid future implications. Drop Flynns case and drop any contempt charges against prosecutors and everyone walks away. This case should be different. Their actions prompted this circus and even allowed the midterm elections to be unfairly manipulated and quite possibly stolen. There were big time consequences to their actions and they should not walk away unscathed.

    Analysis by lawyers on Twitter seem to indicate that the hearing was canceled because Sullivan deemed the Flynn’s (Powell’s) documentation to be comprehensive enough that supporting oral arguments are not necessary at the scheduled hearing.

    This analysis also favors Sullivan making a decision to compel Brady material much sooner than the Nov. 7 date.

    Some are saying that this means Sullivan is about to dismiss the case, and that does not appear to be the indicator here.

      In a sense Sidney Powell has done a DIY Brady production with her latest filing (or more precisely, some insider white hats have done it for her.) And I agree that her filing contains evidence of egregious prosecutorial misconduct.

      But a couple things temper my optimism for a dismissal as the case stands:

      First, unless I missed it, the government hasn’t been heard in response to Powell’s filing, so the extraordinary event of a dismissal based on as yet untested defense allegations seems unlikely.

      Second, at least twice that I recall, under each set of counsel, LTG Flynn has expressly declined to withdraw his guilty plea, which would be the normal relief granted for material Brady violations in a non-trial setting. And of course a permitted plea withdrawal would expose Flynn to the risk of a trial on charges beyond the pleaded offense.

      So, while I would be unsurprised to see dismissal as the ultimate outcome, I would expect to see either a procedural step in which the prosecution attempts to rebut Powell’s filing, or a very quiet conference resulting in an agreement by the government to withdraw the charge in the interest of justice.

      (I’ll save what I really hope happens in the case, and to these outlaws diguised as government lawyers, for another thread.)

    Third: my sentencing recommendation — Rosenstein and Comey to Florence ADX Supermax, Brennan to general population in USP Marion, Simpson to D.C. Jail 30 days, Strzok and McCabe to a gentleman’s prison like Lompoc FCI where they can receive public scorn in plain sight.

    Perhaps Sullivan, Horowitz, Barr and Durham are also waiting for the Supreme court to rule on qualified immunity so as to avoid opening some cans of worms which may not need to be opened. That’s happening in December isn’t it?

    Where’s Huber? It would be nice to see him sharing a cell with Sessions. Such refined company.

    Sidney Powell is a brilliant attorney, but what’s more, she is excellent at uncovering the truth that no one else would do! I pray true justice is served to those who did this to Gen Flynn, America cannot tolerate any less.

    Maybe we ought to encouage Ms Powell to offer her stellar legal acumen and capabilities to POTUS. Seems she did a world of good for Gen Flynn against the dark side in a comprehensive manner…might be able to do the against the pelosi and the dems for the President.

      Ms. Powell may have had a discussion with PDJT which went: “Mr. President, I want to use the evidence which has been revealed to date to destroy the predicate for the Special Counsel and coincidentally exonerate Gen. Flynn. It may even put the MSM tits in a wringer.”
      Boom!!
      Mifsud’s phones appear. More emails appear. Judge Sullivan dismisses the case against Gen. Flynn, and devotes the rest of his life to tormenting corrupt lawyers. (Not sure if that qualifies as a redundancy?)
      Thanks for reading. I just recovered from Sundance’s dark thoughts about Pelosi’s schemes.

    So there is this huge argument going on between Dr. Janda and Kevin Shipp all over the Dennis Montgomery issue.

    Dr. Janda has 2 new video interviews with Binney and Wiebe that are very interesting. Also interesting that both Binney and Wiebe said they just recently spoke with Montgomery and the stuff they have seen and heard needs to be investigated.

    I really wish Sundance would delve into this more as this spat has bubbled up in the last 30 days when Sidney retweeted the American report article back on Sept 27.

    Coincidence??? I doubt it.

    BS
    This what DC Federal judges do when they want more instructions. Howell is on the phone with Obama, Holder and Powers as we read to layout the tactic to put Flynn down.

    “Deputy Director McCabe, General Counsel James Baker, Lisa Page, Strzok, David Bowdich, Trish Anderson, and Jen Boone strategized to talk with Mr. Flynn in such a way as to keep from alerting him from understanding that he was being interviewed in a criminal investigation of which he was the target.” (from Powell’s filing)

    So what exactly was the “criminal investigation” of which Flynn was the target at the time Strzok/Pientka (S&P) interviewed him? Per Powell, S&P’s notes and 302s, even massaged, show that they asked Flynn ZERO questions about the 2016 campaign or Russian campaign interference/collusion. S&P asked only about Flynn’s calls during the transition; the FBI had transcripts of intercepts and knew these calls were legal. The Logan Act was not in play. Did the FBI have a legal pretext for conducting the interview, and if so, what the heck was it? That seems to cut to the rotten foundation of this whole farce.

    The fabricated allegation that Flynn lied about his legal Kisylac calls WAS the pretext for part of Rosenstein’s OSC authorization. If the original interview was made on an illegitimate basis, Rosenstein can hardly make it legit post-facto using as his basis the poisoned fake fruit of the interview itself.

    Can you write a post about the motivations / true purpose behind the Flynn defense? It seems obvious to me that Flynn has never been fighting this fight for himself. There’s obviously a bigger reason behind it all, but I’m just not sure what it is? Was Flynn used from the get-go as a way for Trump admin to get info on the origins of the Russia-hoax setup that otherwise could not be gotten?

    There’s just no way Flynn (and his lawyers) have been spending this much money and time fighting in a case where he already plead guilty. Someone help me.
