Sidney Powell Discusses In-Depth Background of Michael Flynn Case….

Michael Flynn’s lead defense counsel Sidney Powell sits down for a lengthy discussion with Epoch Times’ host Jan Jekielek.

In the court case against Lt. General Michael Flynn, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit has ordered Judge Emmet Sullivan to grant the DOJ’s request to dismiss. But what will happen next?

In the eyes of General Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell, what are the implications of Judge Sullivan keeping the case open? Is there more exculpatory evidence to come in the Flynn case? And, what are some possible steps to take to strengthen the U.S. Department of Justice as an institution?

  1. A mandate under rule 41 has not issued yet.Rule 41. Mandate: Contents; Issuance and Effective Date; Stay

    (a) Contents. Unless the court directs that a formal mandate issue, the mandate consists of a certified copy of the judgment, a copy of the court’s opinion, if any, and any direction about costs.
    (b) When Issued. The court’s mandate must issue 7 days after the time to file a petition for rehearing expires, or 7 days after entry of an order denying a timely petition for panel rehearing, petition for rehearing en banc, or motion for stay of mandate, whichever is later. The court may shorten or extend the time by order.

    • If the judge is not a party, it is theoretically possible that the court could issue a mandate tomorow, 7 days from the issuance of the order of mandamous, putting Judge Sullivan in contempt for not acting, after tomorrow, when the order becomes enforceable. Sullivan has had jurisdiction to dismiss the case to this point as an ethical matter. This interpretation would imply that the court only 7 days to itself request an en banc. I question that result. However I cannot find a time limitation for the court to sua sponte invoke en banc.

      Sidney may need to move to shorten time on the issuance of the Mandate or get the court to define the time periods used to calculate when the Mandate shall issue.

      • Sidney may like the limbo Sullivan is in and the delay and may use it to get more information out. Flynn may not be worried by his own limbo, at least right now.

        Sidney was criticized a little for not moving to stay Gleason’s Amicus Report. I believe that Amicus report was the final straw and assured the issuance of the writ. Her decision not to try stay to stay it turned out to be a great move.

          When the law is pretty clear about the prosecution holding the power to go forward or withdraw the litigation, looks like another Lawfare trick to try and get by with turning judges into policymakers & legislators.

          We might not have gotten this decision 3 yrs. ago; but Pres. Trump has gotten some conservatives in the DC District Court of Appeals.

          Sue them all, Gen. Flynn, especially Holder’s law firm!!

      Hannity could learn something watching him. The format of his TV show makes it harder to do substantive interviews but it’s still possible. He has plenty of time to do interviews like this on radio but wants to talk about every job he held in the past, where he has lived, his MMA, and laugh with his staff and the guests he has frequently.

        OmegaManBlue, the trouble with Hannity and the producers for his Fox News TV Show, is that they always cram too many guests on the show, and because of that, those guests are never allow sufficient time to speak. They are usually cut off because Hannity constantly interrupts, or they are stopped because and once again thanks to Hannity’s blabbering, have run out of time. Laura Ingram’s show is starting to get like Hannity’s. Even when her guests have time to speak she cuts them off because just like Hannity, she likes to hear herself talk. Tucker Carlson is the only one on during prime time who gets it. He doesn’t load his show with guests and ALWAYS gives his guests ample time to speak. Hannity and Ingram could learn a lot by watching Tucker’s show.

      Jan is excellent. Every time I hear his interviews, he asks the right questions and is able to achieve relevant, fulsome answers. You can tell that the interviewee respects the forum and the host so that the questions and answers are responsive and relevant.

      Like many of you, too many times I hear a Hannity interviewee about to say something interesting and Hannity steps right into the middle of the interesting answer then Hannity asks a different question basically c*ck blocking an interesting point or answer so the interviewee has to answer a different question from Hannity. Hannity then needs to go to commercial break and then a new question and a different subject.

    That was epoch. (both the meaning and the pun are intended)
    Thank you Epoch times’. You are on a roll. Good.

    Next steps are to get epoch information more mainstream – to more and more people.
    i.e. improve the education

    p.s.
    The error by omission in the interview, the mis-justice elephant in the U.S. justice room:
    In addition to DOJ and FBI personnel, unlawful behavior cleanups,
    maybe at some point in near time
    we can get to cleaning up the embedded supreme court ideological bias – and get back to following law.
    It’s like some of them (about 4 mis-think they are empowered to evolve or mis-interpret the legislated, written laws)
    are mis-leading the way by proverbially, obstructing written law and justice – for decades.
    i.e. leading by poor (yet elite) examples – not in a lawful (written law) way.
    (but mis-appearing so, by getting mis-appointed, mis-confirmed, by wearing the robe to mis-look professional, and continually getting a pass at making mis-judgements without a u.s. law basis.).

    Yes, it is big ship to get back onto a correct course in the interest of equal justice for all.

    And part of the current system, does need to have voters be educated – not fooled – prior to, or during, elections
    (which is continuous cycle -which may not last with an progressively, backwards, increase in mis-educations)..

    imho
    ” prove all things,
    hold fast to that which is good.”
    Thessalonians 5:21

    i.e. As wise christian, hard and smart working Grandfather advised to Grandson over 35 years ago,
    ‘don’t take any wooden nickels’. (whatever the words, or forms)
    It’s quite apparent that many people never got such advice and / or do not take it to heart. There is proof in the pudding. See above….

    HUGE: Per His Lawyer — General Flynn Was Targeted Because “He Knew About the Billions Brennan and Company Were Running Off the Books”
    By Joe Hoft
    Published June 30, 2020

    General Michael Flynn had to be removed. He knew too much. He had to be shut down and silenced. He was the primary Deep State target.

    He was going to audit the intel agencies because he knew about the billions Brennan and company were running off the books,” Powell said, referring to former CIA Director John Brennan.

    I apologize if these are already listed above in the comments.
    I have captured Ms. Powell’s excellent suggestions for restoring faith
    in our lying, corrupt judicial system. I am sure she would add more suggestions if given a chance,
    but these will do for starters:
    1. Fire every prosecutor that has intentionally violated the Brady rule to produce exculpatory evidence,
    or criminalized innocent conduct
    or made up a crime against a person,
    or lied to the court.
    2. Conduct independent file reviews of cases for evidence of perjury or illegal behavior by the prosecution through the use of a Conviction Integrity Review Unit or a like body.
    3. Conduct FBI FISA reviews on a regular basis. Agents caught lying on FISA applications should be fired immediately.
    4. Require the FBI to record all interviews.
    5. Require the FBI to Mirandize all interviewees at start of all interviews.
    6. Prosecute agents who lie to the court
    “WE CANNOT HAVE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS TRUSTED WITH THE POWER OF THE SOVEREIGN OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA LYING TO FEDERAL JUDGES”.

Poll after poll, in which I think people really do tell the truth about this matter, report that the vast majority (70+%) of the American people do not think the government truly rules with the consent of the governed. Immediate implementation of the six rules Sidney stated (and 335 was kind enough to list) would do a great deal to change that percentage of disaffected American citizens.

      As to corrupt judges, I have 2 comments:

      (1) The reason Pres. Trump had so many judgeships to fill was either Pres. Ovomit was too lazy and/or Hildebeast needed the openings for donors & paybacks. So all the hopefully conservative 150+ judges Pres. Trump has appointed would have been looney activists under Hildebeast.

      (2) Had Pres. Trump not won, she would likely have had at least 2-3 Supreme Court justices to select in her first term. She and/or Bill promised one spot to Anita Lynch (rumor or true?) Hildebeast would appoint at least 2 more activist judges on the Supreme Court bench, including the first transgender.

      We would know nothing about any of this because the media made their propaganda agreement with Democrats in 2008, if not before.

    Everyone clue up the video to mark 25:19

    Listen closely, (my parphrased emphasis) …
    on Aug 17th 2016 , the FBI slipped in an agent into a Presidential briefing, to assess Mr. Flynn’s character, his weaknesses.

    Just how does that square with ‘by the book’ of January 5th 2017.

    Every CHTreeper, knows Sundance’s time line.
    August 17th is a date that stands out in that time line.
    Consistently.
    And here is Sidney, putting words into discoverable action.
    By the book, my ass!
    For a long time I have been willing to give President Obama the respect deserved of the Office.
    No more… The 25:19 remark destoys that benefit of doubt. Period end of discussion.
    Since President Obama and General Flynn had a massive fallout back in 2014, and in my opinion used his office to railroad him. Over what is anyone’s guess, but since it is actually it is not a guess anymore if the Truth can be told. Mr. Flynn, opposed the President’s Middle East policy shift that benefited the MB’hood.

    An honest reflection then shows, “How that all circles the drain on the witch narratives goals.”
    Every real player with skin in the game knows this fact, they just choose to apply the Mamit Principle. Basically, pretending to not know things, simply because doing so serves and advances an agenda that is reaping huge dividends far outside the narrative focus of ‘Orange Man is bad’.

    And, serious people are wondering why, “Sidney was denied classified review of the evidence.”
    The Brady material narrative is just another narrative to defect the True issue of why Mr Flynn was targeted by the Government.
    He knows where the skeletons are buried and the fallout ramifications. Mr. Flynn is very likely conflicted with this knowledge because of its double sword nature.
    And this is the gambit, the deep state is playing to the max.

    I am hopeful, the Judge Sullivan’s gambit is being based on a contraring principle, that is to dismiss the case is to bury to government’s wrong doing. In essence by Judge Sullivan biting down, he is falling on the sword to expose the extent of the wrong doing that would be swept away by dismissal of the Flynn case.
    Just food for thought.

    I want Lt. Michael Flynn to be free of this morass and the sooner the better but I have to say I’d rather enjoy seeing Sullivan’s continued resistance create obstruction of justice charges against him.

    I can’t help but wonder if he isn’t embroiled in a number of Obama crimes and is under investigation right now.

    Totally agree with the A+ rating for Jan Kejielek, and Superwoman rating for Sidney Powell.

    Also interesting were insights into when she learned what from whom.

    She was totally surprised by Sullivan’s 90+ page opinion denying every Brady request – such a shock when compared to his Ted Stevens opinions, about which she had “bragged” on him in her book.

    She’s learned from someone that there is more damning Brady material still to come, suggesting she has sources somewhere in some investigations.

    Her education about Covington, their conflict due to their role in Flynn’s FARA filing, and their two document dumps on her, and belief that there is more to come. (It would make sense that Eric Holder would be involved in ways we’ve not yet heard of).

    On another note, I watched the Trayvon Hoax today. I know Sundance and many Treepers with longer CTH seniority than I have known this for years, but there is a similar outrage to that case, where subversives in LE and prosecution, in the Democrat Party, and in various “movements,” make s*** up to frame people for political purposes.
