Reconstructing Justice – Flynn Defense Submits Outstanding Sur-Surreply to Counter Prosecution….

In the case against Lt. General Michael Flynn, his lawyer Sidney Powell previously filed a motion to compel (MTC) Brady material from the prosecution (here).  Because the MTC raised stunning, potentially game-changing, legal and ethical issues the prosecution requested the opportunity to file a surreptitious reply to the court; a “surreply”. (here)

Judge Sullivan directed the prosecution to file their surreply, and then granted the defense the opportunity to file a sur-surreply, a response to the prosecution’s last argument. Today Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell filed that response (full pdf below).

Having read thousands, perhaps tens-of-thousands, of legal filings, motions and court documents presenting arguments of material consequence, this sur-surreply to the arguments of the prosecution is artful in its succinct intent of getting to the nub of it.

What makes this articulate reply to the court so effective, in addition to the declared truth within it, is how it is written to both Judge Emmet Sullivan and the public.  This is a motion deserving of a read by anyone who has followed the travesty of the Flynn inquisition in detail or in summary. Do not cheat yourself out of the enjoyment; read it.

The response to the prosecution argument cuts through the chaff and countermeasures and identifies the ridiculous and necessary schemes played by the prosecution, starting with their preposterous position that Flynn’s plea did not require the government to provide exculpatory, Brady, evidence.  Page One:

Flynn’s defense calls out the ridiculous.  The prosecution argues it had no obligation to tell the target about any material favorable to the defense while the prosecution was piling-on pressure to generate a plea agreement.   Then, once the plea was coerced, the prosecution claims they have no obligation to provide Brady material because the target signed a plea.

Flynn’s defense points out the ridiculous nature of the prosecution claiming they don’t possess any FD-302 draft prior to the lengthy back-and-forth, discussion and editorial process within the FBI small group that resulted in the February 15th “official” FD-302 report.

Just because prosecutor Van Grack doesn’t have the original draft in his pocket, “if it did exist”, does not mean the government does not have access to produce the 302 draft everyone knows exists within the FBI’s electronic filing system.

Flynn’s original defense lawyers (firm: Covington, Kelner, Anthony, and Langton Inc.) were the attorneys who advised Flynn on how to complete the FARA paperwork/filing.  When the DOJ threatened to use the FARA filing as evidence against Flynn, and then later against Michael Flynn Jr., in essence the DOJ was accusing Covington of participating in the manufacturing false documentation.

The Covington lawyers held a material interest in the DOJ dropping the FARA aspect to their prosecution; and by extension the Covington lawyers recommending that Flynn accept a plea agreement to remove that legal issue was a profound conflict.

In their surreply the DOJ downplayed this conflict despite the prosecution taking copious and careful notes about it during the time they were using the FARA violation to compel the plea deal.  The defense team does not allow the DOJ to be so obtuse in their sur-surreply.

Every page is filled with articulate facts and sound legal justification that deconstruct the position of an ethically challenged prosecution.  However, this footnote is particularly cogent in outlining the question everyone, including Judge Sullivan, holds in the back of their mind.

The defense team notes the profound conflict of interest that was carried by Mr. Flynn’s original defense team during their interview sessions prior to the plea agreement; and the defense appropriately puts that defense conflict into context amid the pressure simultaneously being applied by the government.

In essence: ‘Nice family you have there Mr. Flynn, it would be a shame if something happened to them; by the way, how’s that new grand-baby getting along?’…

The defense articulates that sometime in the future they will likely file a motion to dismiss this case…. However, in the interim the defense is proceeding on a proper course to determine the scale, scope and backroom shenanigans that took place throughout the FBI and DOJ effort against their client.

The sur-surreply is truly a great read and this motion presents Judge Sullivan with information that not only supports the original Motion to Compel, but also provides important context for how this abusive case metastasized within a special counsel who was purposed on a precondition that targeting Michael Flynn was a priority.

For the prosecution in this case, the continuation of the brady process to discover the background information/evidence might just be a worse option than withdrawing the charges.

Please read the full filing:

.

Lt. General Michael Flynn is very well represented.   It will be interesting to see how Judge Emmet Sullivan responds to these latest developments.

    What should anger all citizens is the threats and endless government budgets are used against anyone charged by the Feds.

    What should terrify all citizens is that this was done to someone so we’ll connected and in full view of the public, media, and judiciary. If they can do that in these circumstances to a General what chance would any of us have.

        I also know someone who was in a similar mess at the state level (not providing gender, location, etc., to protect them, but this is a good example). A false accusation was made and the person went to court to defend that person’s good name. The outcome was favorable to this person but cost the family over $50,000. Fifty plus grand to defend against a false accusation. I hope the person sues the state to recover the money and damages. What government at all levels has become is such a disgrace.

I heard him tell his story on a local radio station a year or two ago. It’s very similar to what’s happening to Gen Flynn. The head of the division that tried to convict him of a crime was Sally Yates. It’s pretty sick what they put him and his employees through.

    At what point do “behavioral economic” measures –not mere disincentives, arbitrary personal penalties, but substantive institutional changes (“reform” is not the word)– begin to get the DC mule’s attention? These necessarily include radical decentralization; repeal of Pres. Arthur’s Pendleton Act to ensure Fourth Branch performance via personnel turnover; mandated out-sourcing of est. 80 – 90% of administrative/regulatory (bureaucratic) functions to competitive private entities on near-term contracts vs. useless ingrown-toenail quota-hires.

    Call an incoming Administration’s institutional appointments a “spoils system” if you will, but two centuries’ experience with DC’s extreme-malfeasance, lurking-menace “Deep State” careerist clerisy proves that a disinterested, impartial, non-partisan Civil Service is a dangerous myth. Having perspicaciously addressed checks-and-balances in Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches, the Founders perforce neglected every historical State’s underlying mandarinate, its parasitic Fourth Branch substrate which eventually –in about ten 36-year cycles, 360 years– crushes every civil polity, rendering society defenseless when barbarians are at the gate.

    On its face, institutionalizing crucial preventive measures as “reforms” would likely require convening a dread Constitutional Convention for the first time in U.S. history. Preventing an open-ended, out-of-control overthrow of Bill of Rights strictures is not a matter for judicial kritarchs but a profoundly socio-cultural/political exercise in popular sovereignty. Alas for people’s rule, for some two generations this country’s relentlessly collectivist/Statist academic-media-official complex has tirelessly promoted a passive-aggressive, penultimately narcissistic, quota-baby dependency syndrome rendering successive cohorts’ lower quintiles incapable of discerning their true interests. Absent formally enacted, real-world procedural solutions, Franklin’s American Experiment will perish of success– and deserve its fate.

        Garavaglia: General Flynn trusted the system as the America he grew up in, much like I was raised. Unfortunately America morphed into something lesser than the great Nation I was raised to believe was a just society. When one has to worry that their Government will screw them rather than improve every element of society, the system is doomed to never actually rise to the top. It will protect the powerful over all of the rest, while giving a false sense of security to most, and that is what we have today.

        Garavaglia, we have never heard Mike Flynn’s recounting of that conversation. All we have heard are the coup plotters, who have a vested interest in lying about this to convict him.

        General Flynn was NatSecAdv. He has a Deputy Director for the Bureau and Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterintelligence Division show up for a meeting in his office on Day 2. He isn’t thinking “What have I done wrong?”. He is probably wondering what kind of Counter-Intelligence Op is going on. He was probably thinking of this more as a briefing or Sit-Rep than him being a target.

        What would be worth millions of dollars is a and video tape of that meeting. I would love to know exactly what, and how, McCabe and Strozk asked him. You can be just about guaranteed that it is NOT what they said it was.

        FOX has been noticeably altering their coverage and host/ess lineup since the election. Rest assured that this has not gone unnoticed by the general public. It is blatantly obvious that while they may provide talking points that half-heartedly rebut the Russian Hoax and other anti-Trump propaganda, they still continue the dialogue, repeating the lies and keeping them in the public view. FOX media avoids dialogue/narrative/coverage/etc on the blatant corruption within our State. Instead, FOX media focuses largely on fake, anti-Trump narratives while they pretend to defend him. I’ve arrived at the idea that FOX will replace CNN in the airports. They’ve already pulled CNN here at the San Diego airport, and San Fransisco didn’t renew their contract either. Only a matter of time I feel.

        Repetition is the key to accessing the subconscious. And coupled with strategic placement and celebrity endorsements, repetition is a powerful tool. This media strategy is “textbook” in nature and standard practice for marketing/advertising/sales professionals with a basic understanding of Integrated Marketing Communications. IMC is an actual field of study at universities nationwide. I’m not surprised at all people are responding favorably to the 24/7/365 messaging at the news stand/gas pump/elevator/bill boards/social media/search engines/airports/etc. Large cities/population centers with high concentrations of media are inundated with such messaging and more likely to succumb. It’s like that song you hear on the car radio Monday morning on your drive to work. It’s an awful song and you still hate it by Friday’s drive home, but by that time your singing every word.

        The polls that are released publicly are completely and utterly fake and have no further credibility after the last election. Even the simplest among us understand this.

    Lt. Gen. Flynn needs to get back to the job he was doing before he bravely undertook to expose the whole rat’s nest in the DOJ and FBI; National Security Advisor beginning the investigation and audit of the IC for their corruption and criminal actions against the nation and it’s people! We now know that the IC doesn’t give a red cent for the “will of the people,” they only care about their own wealth and power. Everyone else bedamned! But remember, JFK was murdered by them just days after announcing his intention to “smash the CIA into a thousand pieces.” Hopefully we have enough white hats, and the black hats are too exposed now to use that paradigm again!

    2) Get appointed Special Prosecutor by AG Barr to investigate Ukraine corruption, beginning Before the Ukraine Coup in 2014 to present.

    After either of these I’d like to see her become PT AG in Nov 2020 assuming Barr wants to go back to retirement. If Barr is willing to stay then I’d make her the new FBI Director and put Gen. Flynn back in as NSA Director.

    She would be good on SC but IMO we have other very good conservative judges for PT to pick from so cleaning up the DOJ, FBI and NSA Abuse is paramount for draining the swamp.

      Bogeyfree,

      I agree with you on taking on the Dennis Montgomery case.

      And while the lovely Ms. Powell is at it…how about the William Campbell case, which is currently represented by Victoria T (of DiGenova & Teonsing).

      Both the NSA whistleblower (Montgomery) and Uranium One whistleblower (Campbell) need to be well represented for the truth to finally be revealed about NSA, State and Clinton Foundation.

      When Shakespeare famously wrote “ let’s kill all the lawyers “, he wasn’t referring to Sidney Powell and co , he was referring to the kings prosecutors ( private citizens were not allowed lawyers in the time ) . We have come full circle , James Otis speech against King George and his lawyers ( prosecutors ) is as vital and relevant today as it was in 1765 . The kings prosecutors are Herr Mueller and his dream team and all their brethren that reside in the swamp known as Washington DC . History repeats .

    Much of the swamps bluster is just that and is proven on a daily basis by our great President Trump as he out maneuvers these rats with ease. The same holds true for Sydney Powell and her defense of General Flynn. It’s almost too easy, all it took was the willingness to fight back, win, lose or draw. Everything associated associated with the Beltway is corrupt, especially these august entrenched law firms. Their job it would seem is to seek conclusions that behoove the swamp so that the parasite — DC can continue to feed.

    Now. What will Judge Sullivan do? Long time swamp rat. You can bet he’s compromised in some way. He has family members working at Brooking’s, Cato et al. Maybe family members over at K-Street. Children or grandchildren over at Georgetown U, Harvard, Yale, Columbia being inculcated in all things swamp.

    If he rules against Sydney Powell and Gen. Flynn they’ve got him by the short hairs. If he rules for Powell/Flynn better to be embarrassed than to risk the complete downfall of all things swamp. Same holds true for AG Barr. I believe they know that this country is a tinder-box and they are holding the matches and gasoline. Thinking, free America is paying attention, something a swamp rat never likes.

    KAG! …by restoring “Equal justice under the law.” We’ll see.

      I’ve always assumed that since Powell’s backing him into a corner, he’d prefer to stall until after IG report and maybe even an indictment. That way, he won’t have to go first and can more easily fly under the radar. Profiles in mush.

    This brief is indeed a masterpiece, but I have an idea – let’s elect a good President who would put good people in charge of the DOJ so that the DOJ, instead of defending the indefensible, comes to court and says “Your honor, we did indeed do wrong and we agree with the defense that this guilty plea should be vacated, with no opposition from us.” Yes this is satire, but seriously – what’s the point of electing the right people if the wrong people are under them running things, still, years later. My recollection is that when democrats win they don’t have any trouble getting things to their way, right away.

    Took sundance’s excellent advice to read the entire filing and yes, it was indeed enjoyable!

    Two Sidney quotes especially struck me:

    “…playing cat and mouse with the Due Process Clause…” She is of course accusing Van Grack and the others of this, but Pelousy, the Sack of Schiff, and the rest are doing exactly the same thing as we speak!

    And this – remember it – this is also a strength Durham has on his side:

    “Having such concrete evidence as to the prosecution’s [in Durham’s case it will be the defense] thinking process is rare; having it in text messages and sworn congressional testimony is priceless.”

    Be of good cheer this week!

      My favorite part is the end where she says basically she knows she can have the case dismissed but she would rather wait and continue to compel the government to produce this hidden Brady material. Good for her, as the government will likely at this point try to drop charges to avoid their actions seeing the light of day

    That is, in fact, a fascinating read. The fact that the DoJ is fighting so hard to continue this prosecution while stonewalling production (or even trying to locate and produce) exculpatory Brady material should alert and inform all of us that Barr is not at all engaged in draining the swamp or righting past wrongs. It does not support the hope that Strzok, Page, Comey, Brennan or others will ever be charged with anything. Just the opposite.

    Sullivan better step up to the plate and prove he is more than just hot air with his statements about process. If he falls back to the typical US Attorney’s bullshit “But he pleaded guilty!!!!” Whiny justification for railroading someone using the vast power of the government, then he is sending a chilling message to Americans: If the DOJ targets you, you have no rights to unconflicted counsel – in fact the government can purposefully create a fatal conflict that guarantees counsel will sell out their client to avoid malpractice, misconduct and disbarment by coercing them to sign a waiver with no knowledge of what they are waiving, or that they can not, under law, sign away their rights. Also, you have no rights to see exculpatory evidence before talking the plea – a mind-bending concept that you could be railroaded into pleading guilty for a murder you didn’t commit, even while the prosecution had the murder weapon, a signed confession, videotape, dna evidence and witnesses that someone else did it — because you hadn’t been charged yet, you and your counsel would never get to know any of that until after your plea, and if the government had its way – EVER.

    This is a morally repugnant case, and one the DOJ should drop and drop now. If the evidence Powell suggests exists comes out, it will utterly destroy the reputation and confidence in the DOJ and the US court system. Perhaps Sullivan should force its exposure regardless of the government’s actions. The people need to know what “their” justice department actually thinks about “justice for all.”

Holder used his connections at DOJ to get a sweet heart deal for Chiquita after they were shown to have paid death squads $1.7 million, provided automatic weapons and ammunition to “solve” a labor dispute. More than 4000 people were killed in Northern Colombia.

    Thank you for posting this incredibly interesting and informative Sur-Surreply from Sidney Powell. I worked in the courts for a number of years and have read numerous filed motions and documents. This one is incredibly succinct, easy to read and sheds light on issues the layman can understand. As you say, ‘a fun read’. How interesting, that Sidney Powell and Judge Sullivan should be in the same courtroom once again on similar issues they have previously litigated hears earlier. That being the famous Sen. Ted Stevens railroading by government prosecutors. Its fascinating how this Sur-Surreply reads exactly like the facts pointed out in “Licensed to Lie”. The outrageous actions of federal prosecutors in that case used to falsely and maliciously prosecute a sitting senator for political purposes. As in this case, it was disgusting. Judge Emmet Sullivan recognized the government misconduct (criminal in my opinion) and overturned the conviction referring the prosecuting attorneys for review by the ethics committee and disciplinary action taken. As I recall one of the prosecuting attorneys committed suicide. The rest are despicable charlatans in the mold of Andrew Weismann. We are now engaged in a fight for the very soul of this republic. It’s amazing just how many well meaning people don’t realize this truth. Thank you for this post. God bless Sidney Powell.

    By Page 15 of Sidney’s brief, I couldn’t get the Rollings Stones out of my head. Her brief is TOO WELL WRITTEN.

    I’m afraid Judge Sullivan must hang his hat on the conflicted defense counsel to avoid that rabbit hole, as Sidney implicates, of a prosecutor leveraging defense counsel against its client. Even the ultimate puppetmaster, we so desperately want identified and executed, understands there is no pay grade barring this exit strategy.

    Perhaps Judge Sullivan escapes without full Brady disclosures, Liu and Van Strock are left to be further gored by Sidney’s Texas star, Lt. Gen. Flynn walks away somewhat exonerated but insulated and we can’t get any satisfaction that something will ever get done…
