Chuck Grassley Reacts to Latest Flynn Documents…

Many people forget that Senator Chuck Grassley has skin in this investigation.  Grassley has always suspected Flynn was framed.  Back in June of 2018, Senator Grassley was very suspicious of what Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was doing to facilitate the targeting of Michael Flynn when he said:

…”If the facts are inconsistent with the plea agreement, that would be an entirely different kettle of fish.”… (more)

Earlier today Grassley reacted to the previously hidden FBI documents showing that Michael Flynn was targeted for removal by the FBI “small group”.  WATCH:

“If the facts are inconsistent with the plea agreement, that would be an entirely different kettle of fish.”

JUNE 2018 – The Department’s reply to my May 11, 2018 letter seeking information about the circumstances surrounding Lt. General Michael Flynn’s reported conversations with the Russian ambassador and FBI records related to those conversations is insufficient. The letter only recounts a series of publicly known facts about Lt. General Flynn’s plea agreement and relies on improper excuses in refusing to provide the requested information. The Committee requires this information to fulfill its Constitutional function and its charge under Senate Rules to conduct oversight of the Department of Justice.

First, as you know, some of that information was first requested on a bipartisan basis before your confirmation. The Committee has waited patiently for much more than a year for the criminal inquiry related to Lt. General Flynn to conclude. It has been more than five months since his guilty plea. Thus, there is no longer any legitimate reason to withhold facts from the Senate about the circumstances of his conversations with the Russian ambassador and his FBI interview.

Second, the Department’s letter erroneously suggests that complying with Congressional oversight would result in “the reality or the appearance of political interference” in a “pending criminal prosecution.” There is no pending prosecution. The guilty plea was more than five months ago.

The Department’s letter describes in detail what everyone already knows. Lt. General Flynn admitted to the Statement of Offense with the able assistance of counsel. All that remains is for Lt. General Flynn to be sentenced. Simply disclosing facts to the Committee could not possibly “interfere” with the case at this late date, assuming those facts are consistent with the representations that prosecutors arranged for Lt. General Flynn to swear to in federal court.

If the facts are inconsistent with the plea agreement, that would be an entirely different kettle of fish.  (more pdf link)

      It is the Washington Two Step Dance. First, all Information was delayed from 2017 to 2018 so Republicans Congress could not Investigate. Once 2018 Elections happen the Democrats ended all Investigations by turning the Committees towards Trump. Now it is coming out just 7 Months from the General Elections and GOP Senate and Congress Office Holders now express outrage but say they don’t care about any Prosecutions just fix the FISA Court Abuse System? In another 7 Months, President Trump loses and a Democratic Congress and Senate with Mail Ballot Harvesting will make sure no Investigations continues! Even if the President and GOP Senate are Reelected it will just end again. No Accountability!

      I was thinking Grahamnesty but Gowdy serves the same purpose. With very very few exceptions, these hot airbags make much of their “tough” letters to these rogue agencies and their go-nowhere hearings and “investigations.”

      They are solely for plausible deniability and feeding the proletariat purposes. The evildoers on the receiving end play their part, learned at the DC Swamp School of Performing Arts, saying they are cooperating etc. and even on occasion give a modest “mea culpa” about some tangential or procedural issue and promise to “do better,” and the crisis, now averted, quietly fades away.

        I was in an automobile accident years back, a man went through a red light while other traffic was moving, he happened to broadside me pushing my car into 4 people waiting for the light so they can cross. My fear was not me, but hitting the innocent people and perhaps killing them. My point is, it was a clear cut case, the man plead guilty at the scene and later as well, he was crying as they were taking me away by ambulance. It took almost 4 years for the lawyers liars to come to an agreement, my loss of wages my surgeries etc. I can’t imagine this mess a tangled web they have to untangle. I hope these evil bastards get what is coming to them. The man that hit me, I actually felt bad for him from what I recall, he did not do it on purpose, like he said he just zoned out waiting at the light, at least an honest man, it can happen to any of us, but this is intentional, dirty, they thought this through and did not think they would get caught.

      10 2nd Amendment Cases Scheduled for Supreme Court Conference Review After NYSRPA Loss

      Ducking a true ruling on NYSRPA v. NYC this week, the Supreme Court majority cowered to threats from the progressive left. Court justices will review 10 additional 2A cases on Friday. They must choose at least one and issue an actual 2A ruling, or submit to civil disobedience from the 2A movement.

        Notwithstanding such a risk of civil disobedience, the Supremes, especially as currently comprised with Roberts “leading,” they will use every diversionary trick (standing, mootness, political question, ripeness etc.) they can to avoid any case that looks like it could go against the gun grabbers and for reaffirming the 2d Amendment both as an individual right and as limiting its “infringement.”

        They are largely cowards who do not want to endure the wrath of the unhinges left more than they may worry about some fringe “gun nuts.” All of the Justices are “city folk” who simply do not seen gun rights and issues as do those from non-urban environs.

      Young man I don’t say it but I agree with you a lot! However, the travesty for America is occurring the senate and house! IMHO the USA’s last hope rises in Nov 3 with the election of DJT at the helm with a new DOJ, FBI and new process for FISA surveillance in American born citizens.

      The FBI has been crooked from the day it was founded by J. Edgar himself. I would repeat all of the stuff done under Hoover starting with Al Capone, illegal wiretaps, Martin Luther King, and so much more. Every director since J. Edgar Hoover has merely been trying to keep up with the crap he did. Comey came close with the Hillary mess and trying a coup and President Trump. Hoover already had the dirty laundry on all of the politicians. Comey had to make stuff up against President Trump because had ran his businesses honest and hadn’t been a politician. But Comey failed. Hoover never did…and he did it wearing a dress in his spare time.

It ain’t pretty, but the best efforts of some highly competent folks are being treated undertaken presently, and that’s why the Flynn disclosure has finally occurred.

        You nailed it Don! When this is all over, I think we will find that some people were being used by Trump to get into the networks of these slimes and expose them. There are people we are critical of now who we later will understand played a role in busting the crooks.
        What is some of these people have flipped but are being kept around because they have the confidence of the coup plotters? I think in the end total justice will not be served because they are never going to get Obama. But on the whole, I believe Barr is going to get us justice that will have been worth the wait. I think we are getting close!

    Grassley is just making me angrier. He is all up in arms now that others have done the heavy lifting to get the truth out. He wrote a letter about every nine months or so …but never followed up—now he is offended. Powerful people like him should have been out front demanding Justice in 2018 and 2019.

      Any Republican senator who claims to want to see justice done is betrayed by their abject failure to allow President Trump recess appointments and get his own people in key positions.

      My thoughts exactly. Sullivan has disappointed us before. Many on this site, myself included, tend to see the outcome we would like to see. Somewhere among the many comments on the Flynn case was someone who documented it was damn hard to withdraw a plea of guilty. Damn hard. That said, my money is on Sidney Powell.

        sullivan clearly dislikes General Powell (calling him a traitor in open court, which should have resulted in recusal), and has clearly favored the persecution by acting to prevent disclosure of DOJ/FBI wrongdoing.

        But the new evidence adds some additional defenses, denial of which can keep sullivan in the now-unfriendly public eye. sullivan’s denial of Powell’s commonsense, justice-based earlier motions, by spouting boilerplate/legalistic nonsense in a case of clear intimidation/extortion was not a good look for sullian or the judiciary.

        The DOJ refusal of a Constitutional “Miranda” warning (you have a right to an attorney, anything you say will be held against you…) has been based on a false claim that General Flynn was not a “target”. The withheld evidence shows Flynn was clearly the ‘target’ to prosecute or get him fired. The crooked FBI slime even planned what to do if Flynn asked about whether he was a ‘target’, what would be done with his answers, or if he wanted a lawyer !!! EGREGIOUS MISBEHAVIOR !! And the scheme to avoid a 18 USC 1001 notice, despite clearly attempting to entrap a ‘lie’ under that statute, is a Constitutional violation. These defenses can be added to the defense, for sullivan to try to figure out how to deny them and look even worse…

        Plus there is surely going to be more evidence, which sullivan does not know about yet. Sullivan can stall, but the ‘optics’ of stalling are very bad. Grassley, or even Lindsey Graham, might eventually want to investigate whether sullivan is acting with ‘bad behavior” warranting impeachment. Not a good way for sullivan to end a career.

    I can hardly wait for the newest previously-hidden records that Sidney Powell says are even worse for the DOJ/FBI.

    The speed of DOJ/FBI corruption revelation is quickening. The DOJ/FBI (with crooked congresscritter, CIA and fake media support) are powerful, but their reaction time to react, combine, get their story straight and plan their perfidy given different interests to divide the spoils/power, is slow.

    The fast OODA conflict strategy developed by John Boyd, promotes rapid decision-making (in a recurring cycle of observe–orient–decide–act). By reacting to and initiating events more rapidly than his opponents, PDJT can interrupt the coup plotter’s decision cycle, force mistakes, and prevail over entrenched but ossified power.

    I think (hope) the PDJT pace and attack from different directions, will speed up.

    Lawfare may be good at stirring the pot so-to-speak but it doesn’t succeed in actually delivering, and its efforts generally backfire. After all, Trump’s numbers went higher thanks to Lawfare’s failed impeachment endeavor. The Kavanaugh hearing was yet another failure. Lawfare ain’t the best and brightest, IYKWIM.

  37. Thank goodness Grassley will be heading the Senate Judiciary committee, once again, come January. Lindsey (do nothing) Gramnesty has been a disaster. Did he investigate his promised investigation into Kavanaugh confirmation hearings? If he did, it has been the best kept secret in DC in years. At this point, the SSCI and Lindsey Judiciary committees are in competition for the most corrupt committees on the Hill.

    So let me get this straight – Grassley is all hot and bothered in 2017-2018, then comes Sidney Powell, crickets for Grassley, et al – until it becomes pretty clear the evidence is finally coming out – due to Barr’s appointment of St Louis DA confronting the bureaucracy – and here comes timely grassley to pound his flesh – I’ve been all over this since the beginning.

    No you haven’t! 18 months is a long time to sit around at $1000/hr. Wtf!?

    Popeye the Sailor I am. I live in a garbage can. Disturbing that Grassley is now speaking. out loud all of these years. His letters have been good and thoughtful. Believe he has the best intentions. But seems to me he does not have the TEETH to cut though all of this crap.
    Almost seems to me he is trying to steal Sidney Powell’s fire right now. I don’t see the point for him to be asserting himself into the conversation.as to what is going down now. I guess he is saying he has been trying. And kudos to him for what he has been trying to do.
    I cannot remember the person who used to grill the IG over my agency. Fear and shaking to have to answer his questions in Congressional testimony. All of us on tender hooks to prepare for testimony in front of his committee. Before the Internet existed I took about 24 binders full of paper to D.C. in preparation for testimony.
    Sorry I am in my cups now. But I am very sad tonight. Wondering where did the ART and CRAFT of SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER GO ? It is a great sorrow. for me to assimilate into my being. This is just so wrong.

    Will someone who is interviewing people in either house of Congress Ask why Covington should not have to return every penny of money General Flynn paid for his “defense” and every lawyer or law clerk who worked on his “defense” not be disbarred or at least have their licenses suspended? It would be interesting to review all of Covington’s income through the period before, during and after the Flynn “defense” for a complete listing of all income to the firm. I dare say that as much money went to the firm from Democrats for the advice to plead to protect Mike jr. as from Flynn for his “defense”. At the very least, they are guilty of incompetence and on the other end, they are guilty of collusion.

    Next question, does impeachment only apply to the President? What would be the corresponding process for other government officials? Whatever it is, each and every one of the FBI/DoJ/CIA officers involved in the Flynn-flam as well as the entire Mueller-Weissmann team should face this same process. If the entire lot is not guilty of sedition they are at least guilty of abuse of power. Fair would be to charge them with sedition, then go after their family members for conspiracy to commit sedition. None of these trials can take place within 600 miles of DC and should not have a jury drawn from nor should it take place in a Federal Courthouse located in a community of more than 250,000 American citizens. The Deep State has not only protected them but enabled them. They weren’t all Democrats either—look at John McCain, Mitt Romney, Richard Burr, et al.
