"Imagine that --- being framed by our own government and by political operatives who don’t like you. And I think that’s what we’re gonna find out.” That was Devin Nunes, speaking with Maria Bartiromo on this week’s SUNDAY MORNING FUTURES, on the case of former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

It’s highly doubtful that Nunes, ranking member and former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, would be saying something like this unless he already possessed knowledge that it was true. Recall that he was pilloried for his memo debunking the Russia hoax in 2018, though his conclusions were later verified. (It was Adam Schiff’s memo that was discredited.) Just watch --- Nunes will be right about this, too.

If you’ve read Lee Smith’s excellent book, THE PLOT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT, you know that Flynn was indeed targeted by operatives who didn’t like him, as far back as 2014-15. The Obama Department of Justice (“Justice”) didn’t like him because he wanted to lessen the military’s reliance on the CIA bureaucracy, which only slowed them down when minutes counted on the battlefield. He was calling for financial audits of the Pentagon/Defense Department (uh-oh), and he was a vocal opponent of one of President Obama’s most cherished, administration-defining plans: the Iran Deal. They wanted him compromised long before President-elect Trump announced that he would be coming to the White House to work at his side.

By the way, Nunes also told Bartiromo that, judging by information in the IG report that has recently been declassified, the person who needs to be questioned about the bogus “Russian” narrative is Sergei Millian, one of three Russian-Americans who were apparently involved to some extent. He was asked to come before the House Intel Committee, but according to Nunes, “he is hiding somewhere around the globe.” Nunes is still calling for him to come forward, because “either he was, you know, working for Fusion GPS and the Clinton campaign and dirtying-up Trump people, or it’s quite possible he may have been framed.” If he’s afraid to come back to America, Nunes says, “we can guarantee his safety.”

If you are as far “into the weeds” as we are on the origin story of the dossier, we’ve found a detailed article that supports Nunes’ theory that Millian was indeed framed as the source for information that really came from Fusion GPS. One of my researchers just stumbled across this website and plans to check out the archives, as the information there looks really solid.

In the Bartiromo interview, Nunes says of this individual, “He is the source,” but then backs away from that just a bit, saying he’s “one of” the major sources for Steele and Glenn Simpson/Fusion GPS. Millian is identified as “Person 1” in the IG report. Steele told the FBI that "Person 1" was a “boaster” and “egotist” but still used information credited to him in the “dossier.” He said that Millian was the source for his “Russian prostitutes” story and also for the claim that there was a “well-developed conspiracy of cooperation” between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. Millian, on the other hand, does indeed say he was framed by Steele and Fusion GPS and was not a source for the “dossier.” I think it’s likely we’re going to find that the main “dossier” stories came from Glenn Simpson at Fusion GPS and that this Hillary-paid team just put it out with other people’s names on it.

Incredibly, Robert Mueller’s team never interviewed Millian.

As for Flynn, it’s logical to strongly suspect if not conclude from what we know that he was framed. If he was, then it’s also logical to expect the Obama DOJ to have hidden exculpatory evidence that would have put an end to his legal travails. But Christian Datoc at THE DAILY CALLER NEWS FOUNDATION is reporting that President Trump’s FBI Director Christopher Wray also kept that evidence under wraps. We’ve long expressed doubt of Wray’s effectiveness as FBI director; if this is true, it takes his role into a whole new realm. (In an update, FBI Assistant Director of Public Affairs Brian Hale has issued a statement to the DAILY CALLER absolutely, positively denying this.) Whether Wray was directly involved or not, Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell has long maintained that the FBI and Justice Department were continuing to hide exculpatory evidence, or what’s known as “Brady material.”

But in breaking news, court documents have been filed (finally!) that contain important evidence Powell was seeking, and there might be more to come. This is happening after Attorney General Bill Barr assigned the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri to conduct a review of the Flynn investigation. The review “involved the analysis of reports related to the investigation along with communications and notes by [FBI] personnel associated with the investigation,” according to the cover letter sent to Powell and another attorney.

It had been reported by THE FEDERALIST that FBI general counsel Dana Boente was the one who blocked release of the Brady material, but Datoc’s source says Boente was acting “in coordination with Wray.” (Again, this has been strongly denied by Wray’s office, but it certainly would explain a lot.) This order to put a hold on Brady material should NEVER have been given, by anyone; the Justice Department has previously ruled that the government has no right to withhold exculpatory material. According to DOJ code, “government disclosure of material exculpatory and impeachment evidence [relevant information both helpful and hurtful] is part of the constitutional guarantee to a fair trial.”

This is just one of the reasons Flynn was treated shamefully. He deserves to have his guilty plea thrown out, all charges dropped (or a Presidential pardon), and restitution for the damages this travesty has caused to his reputation, career, financial condition and peace of mind.

More to come soon –- including, I think, some indictments.

Addendum

Finally, here's an excellent lawyerly take from Andrew C. McCarthy, who has said all along that Flynn should never have been prosecuted. He sheds some light on what was going on with Flynn's original attorneys. This is another must-read for anyone who wants to understand what was done to Michael Flynn, which was a criminal abuse of power.

    You are so right in bringing forth the DOJ's questioning the veracity of the conduct of FBI Director Wray through its investigation of the FBI's handling of the Flynn case. What the Obama Administration has done to anyone connected to our President is criminal and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, no matter how high it goes, including Obama himself if it comes to that.

    I also agree fully with your statement that, "He deserves to have his guilty plea thrown out, all charges dropped (or a Presidential pardon), and restitution for the damages this travesty has caused to his reputation, career, financial condition and peace of mind.". This goes for any other Trump supporter/friend/official else who was framed or otherwise received legal malfeasance by the prior Administration of snakes.

I pray that Stone and Flynn are exonerated and that justice will flow downhill to we little folks who suffer even more. Thank you, please pray for truth to,prevail and my son Ron to be free with his family once again.

    It's been too long for justice. We all knew Christopher Wray is a deep stater. What's the matter with Bill Barr? Why hasn't Barr just order the FBI to declassify and submit the documents to Powell? Much of this stuff was discovered 2 years ago...why does it take so long to get anything done? I have followed this coup from the beginning, and I am just sick that it has not yet been resolved. We need to get these traitors in court, with a fair and impartial judge. Oh, but I believe in fairy tales.

    This I do believe that if all is true (I have no doubt that it is) that all General Flynn has lost should be restored to him with interest and that the folks in our Government who went to such great effort to frame him ( and others) these people should be charged with a crime.

  • David McGillvray

    This Flynn thing is sounding worse than the impeachment Schiff show. It is disgusting to think that so many people in positions of our government have absolutely any morals at all, or parents that cared about their children. Probably all sent to school where socialist training was included in every course, though except for Harvard, was hidden in glittering liberal speech. Harvard was blatant.

    Change topic: Could not the President use his emergency powers to keep meat processing plants to remain open. Or take back the Smithfield plants from the Chinese.

    I can only hope and pray that there will be restitution for General Flynn when all is said and done. This is such a travesty! I never thought I would see this precious nation in such dire straights because of this corruption and outright treasonous behavior! To be honest, I do not have any faith or confidence in Director Wray as I believe he is just as culpable- if he knew this was going on and did nothing about it, he is just as guilty. I pray everyday that God will heal our land and our leaders will gain wisdom and leadership through God's leading. Humankind has obviously failed here in being one nation under God. I can only hope and pray that all involved in the 'bloodless coup' -aimed at taking down a duly elected president, will be held accountable. The trust and faith in the government by the American people is fading- we the people need to see action soon in terms of holding all these corrupt politicians and 'deep state' actors accountable.

    "When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

    Hiding exculpatory evidence! Isn't this the trademark of one Andrew Weisman - Chief Investigator and author of the Mueller Report. Also the subject of Sydney Powell's book "License to Lie," I think it is Weisman's presence that causes Powell to pursue truth with such conviction.
    With the Deep State as deep as it seems to be, what are the chances we will ever know the truth and the conspirators punished?

  • Robert Mascari

    04/27/2020 12:42 PM

    It is so, so , so disheartening to see all of this "new" evidence, knowing that most likely, nothing will become of it (as pessimistic, aka realistic) as it may sound.
    Bottom line, as long as money and power exists in politics, it will never end.
    Sickening really. Thank God for people like Devin Nunes, Matt Gaetz, Lindsey Graham, Bill Barr, et al, who continually battle for right and just behavior. It almost gives one hope that someone will pay for all of the misdeeds of those on the left, whose unconscionable behavior have been SO in-your-face and yet have no accountability to anyone.
    Sickening, really.

    Mike, I don't know how to get it started, but I would like to get a "go fund me" started to make General Flynn whole again. While he does deserve to sue the Gov for malfeasance or whatever it may be, He needs to be made whole now instead of waiting years and years for due process which may never occur.
    Can you help this along?

    Yes, Mike, there should BE indictments .....and I just read a comment one of your readers wrote, last night, about why this political saga, in reality, is a kind of civil war! When this reader stated that "our system of government is based on the Constitution, but that's not the system that runs the country" he expressed, in a nutshell, what was the insane hypocrisy the impeachment trial was because it boiled down to a system of government that has no desire to have their country run ON the laws of the Constitution wanting to impeach a system of government for VIOLATING but one OF those Constitutional laws!!! INSANITY!!!

"Imagine that --- being framed by our own government and by political operatives who don’t like you.

    Hiding exculpatory evidence! Isn't this the trademark of one Andrew Weisman - Chief Investigator and author of the Mueller Report. Also the subject of Sydney Powell's book "License to Lie," I think it is Weisman's presence that causes Powell to pursue truth with such conviction.
    With the Deep State as deep as it seems to be, what are the chances we will ever know the truth and the conspirators punished?

    It is so, so , so disheartening to see all of this "new" evidence, knowing that most likely, nothing will become of it (as pessimistic, aka realistic) as it may sound.
    Bottom line, as long as money and power exists in politics, it will never end.
    Sickening really. Thank God for people like Devin Nunes, Matt Gaetz, Lindsey Graham, Bill Barr, et al, who continually battle for right and just behavior. It almost gives one hope that someone will pay for all of the misdeeds of those on the left, whose unconscionable behavior have been SO in-your-face and yet have no accountability to anyone.
    Sickening, really.

    Mike, I don't know how to get it started, but I would like to get a "go fund me" started to make General Flynn whole again. While he does deserve to sue the Gov for malfeasance or whatever it may be, He needs to be made whole now instead of waiting years and years for due process which may never occur.
    Can you help this along?

    It's LONG OVERDUE...that the KNOWN FELONS...be held accountable for their
    vicious attacks on innocent people of the Trump Administration. It is going on
    FOUR YEARS!!!!! These people are getting PAID....NO PENSIONS taken away...
    and actually FLAUNTING the law!!!!!!!!!! It is VERY difficult to understand...how FLYNN got indicted...FAST...and no one from Obama Adm or FBI..CIA etc has.

    Yes, Mike, there should BE indictments .....and I just read a comment one of your readers wrote, last night, about why this political saga, in reality, is a kind of civil war! When this reader stated that "our system of government is based on the Constitution, but that's not the system that runs the country" he expressed, in a nutshell, what was the insane hypocrisy the impeachment trial was because it boiled down to a system of government that has no desire to have their country run ON the laws of the Constitution wanting to impeach a system of government for VIOLATING but one OF those Constitutional laws!!! INSANITY!!!

"Imagine that --- being framed by our own government and by political operatives who don’t like you. And I think that’s what we’re gonna find out.” That was Devin Nunes, speaking with Maria Bartiromo on this week’s SUNDAY MORNING FUTURES, on the case of former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

It’s highly doubtful that Nunes, ranking member and former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, would be saying something like this unless he already possessed knowledge that it was true. Recall that he was pilloried for his memo debunking the Russia hoax in 2018, though his conclusions were later verified. (It was Adam Schiff’s memo that was discredited.) Just watch --- Nunes will be right about this, too.

If you’ve read Lee Smith’s excellent book, THE PLOT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT, you know that Flynn was indeed targeted by operatives who didn’t like him, as far back as 2014-15. The Obama Department of Justice (“Justice”) didn’t like him because he wanted to lessen the military’s reliance on the CIA bureaucracy, which only slowed them down when minutes counted on the battlefield. He was calling for financial audits of the Pentagon/Defense Department (uh-oh), and he was a vocal opponent of one of President Obama’s most cherished, administration-defining plans: the Iran Deal. They wanted him compromised long before President-elect Trump announced that he would be coming to the White House to work at his side.

By the way, Nunes also told Bartiromo that, judging by information in the IG report that has recently been declassified, the person who needs to be questioned about the bogus “Russian” narrative is Sergei Millian, one of three Russian-Americans who were apparently involved to some extent. He was asked to come before the House Intel Committee, but according to Nunes, “he is hiding somewhere around the globe.” Nunes is still calling for him to come forward, because “either he was, you know, working for Fusion GPS and the Clinton campaign and dirtying-up Trump people, or it’s quite possible he may have been framed.” If he’s afraid to come back to America, Nunes says, “we can guarantee his safety.”

If you are as far “into the weeds” as we are on the origin story of the dossier, we’ve found a detailed article that supports Nunes’ theory that Millian was indeed framed as the source for information that really came from Fusion GPS. One of my researchers just stumbled across this website and plans to check out the archives, as the information there looks really solid.

In the Bartiromo interview, Nunes says of this individual, “He is the source,” but then backs away from that just a bit, saying he’s “one of” the major sources for Steele and Glenn Simpson/Fusion GPS. Millian is identified as “Person 1” in the IG report. Steele told the FBI that "Person 1" was a “boaster” and “egotist” but still used information credited to him in the “dossier.” He said that Millian was the source for his “Russian prostitutes” story and also for the claim that there was a “well-developed conspiracy of cooperation” between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. Millian, on the other hand, does indeed say he was framed by Steele and Fusion GPS and was not a source for the “dossier.” I think it’s likely we’re going to find that the main “dossier” stories came from Glenn Simpson at Fusion GPS and that this Hillary-paid team just put it out with other people’s names on it.

Incredibly, Robert Mueller’s team never interviewed Millian.

As for Flynn, it’s logical to strongly suspect if not conclude from what we know that he was framed. If he was, then it’s also logical to expect the Obama DOJ to have hidden exculpatory evidence that would have put an end to his legal travails. But Christian Datoc at THE DAILY CALLER NEWS FOUNDATION is reporting that President Trump’s FBI Director Christopher Wray also kept that evidence under wraps. We’ve long expressed doubt of Wray’s effectiveness as FBI director; if this is true, it takes his role into a whole new realm. (In an update, FBI Assistant Director of Public Affairs Brian Hale has issued a statement to the DAILY CALLER absolutely, positively denying this.) Whether Wray was directly involved or not, Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell has long maintained that the FBI and Justice Department were continuing to hide exculpatory evidence, or what’s known as “Brady material.”

But in breaking news, court documents have been filed (finally!) that contain important evidence Powell was seeking, and there might be more to come. This is happening after Attorney General Bill Barr assigned the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri to conduct a review of the Flynn investigation. The review “involved the analysis of reports related to the investigation along with communications and notes by [FBI] personnel associated with the investigation,” according to the cover letter sent to Powell and another attorney.

It had been reported by THE FEDERALIST that FBI general counsel Dana Boente was the one who blocked release of the Brady material, but Datoc’s source says Boente was acting “in coordination with Wray.” (Again, this has been strongly denied by Wray’s office, but it certainly would explain a lot.) This order to put a hold on Brady material should NEVER have been given, by anyone; the Justice Department has previously ruled that the government has no right to withhold exculpatory material. According to DOJ code, “government disclosure of material exculpatory and impeachment evidence [relevant information both helpful and hurtful] is part of the constitutional guarantee to a fair trial.”

This is just one of the reasons Flynn was treated shamefully. He deserves to have his guilty plea thrown out, all charges dropped (or a Presidential pardon), and restitution for the damages this travesty has caused to his reputation, career, financial condition and peace of mind.

More to come soon –- including, I think, some indictments.

Addendum

Finally, here's an excellent lawyerly take from Andrew C. McCarthy, who has said all along that Flynn should never have been prosecuted. He sheds some light on what was going on with Flynn's original attorneys. This is another must-read for anyone who wants to understand what was done to Michael Flynn, which was a criminal abuse of power.

    You are so right in bringing forth the DOJ's questioning the veracity of the conduct of FBI Director Wray through its investigation of the FBI's handling of the Flynn case. What the Obama Administration has done to anyone connected to our President is criminal and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, no matter how high it goes, including Obama himself if it comes to that.

    I also agree fully with your statement that, "He deserves to have his guilty plea thrown out, all charges dropped (or a Presidential pardon), and restitution for the damages this travesty has caused to his reputation, career, financial condition and peace of mind.". This goes for any other Trump supporter/friend/official else who was framed or otherwise received legal malfeasance by the prior Administration of snakes.

    I’m hardly surprised,just sad it takes so long. My son, a country Dr. Alabama has been treated by the FBI,BCBS,and Federal Judge Axon, in similar and very harsh fashion, as he has been jailed for something he didn’t do but they planted and set him up because he wouldn’t cooperate and,put his patients in harms way. I pray that Stone and Flynn are exonerated and that justice will flow downhill to we little folks who suffer even more. Thank you, please pray for truth to,prevail and my son Ron to be free with his family once again.

    It's been too long for justice. We all knew Christopher Wray is a deep stater. What's the matter with Bill Barr? Why hasn't Barr just order the FBI to declassify and submit the documents to Powell? Much of this stuff was discovered 2 years ago...why does it take so long to get anything done? I have followed this coup from the beginning, and I am just sick that it has not yet been resolved. We need to get these traitors in court, with a fair and impartial judge. Oh, but I believe in fairy tales.

    This I do believe that if all is true (I have no doubt that it is) that all General Flynn has lost should be restored to him with interest and that the folks in our Government who went to such great effort to frame him ( and others) these people should be charged with a crime.

    This Flynn thing is sounding worse than the impeachment Schiff show. It is disgusting to think that so many people in positions of our government have absolutely any morals at all, or parents that cared about their children. Probably all sent to school where socialist training was included in every course, though except for Harvard, was hidden in glittering liberal speech. Harvard was blatant.

    I can only hope and pray that there will be restitution for General Flynn when all is said and done. This is such a travesty! I never thought I would see this precious nation in such dire straights because of this corruption and outright treasonous behavior! To be honest, I do not have any faith or confidence in Director Wray as I believe he is just as culpable- if he knew this was going on and did nothing about it, he is just as guilty. I pray everyday that God will heal our land and our leaders will gain wisdom and leadership through God's leading. Humankind has obviously failed here in being one nation under God. I can only hope and pray that all involved in the 'bloodless coup' -aimed at taking down a duly elected president, will be held accountable. The trust and faith in the government by the American people is fading- we the people need to see action soon in terms of holding all these corrupt politicians and 'deep state' actors accountable.

    "When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
