The Michael Flynn case: FIGHTING BACK!

Less than 2 minute read

September 5, 2019

Don’t look now, but Mike Flynn is fighting back.

With Sidney Powell as his new lawyer as of June, former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, still awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to lying to FBI interrogators (when even his interrogators thought he hadn’t), things are finally starting to crackle in the courtroom. Can I hear an amen!

Flynn’s lawyers have filed a motion against the prosecutors accusing them of hiding exculpatory evidence in his case and asking Judge Emmet Sullivan to find them in contempt of a standing court order, which would mean their dismissal from the case. Powell’s August 30 motion also sought to compel the production of exculpatory evidence, claimed they had singled out Flynn for prosecution and suggested evidence used against him might have been illegally obtained.

It also asked the court to order that prosecutors preserve ALL evidence, including the communications of the special counsel staff.

And you have to love this: Powell’s introductory paragraph cited an article called “Why Innocent People Plead Guilty” and references the statistic that over 20,000 people are in prison for crimes they pleaded guilty to but didn’t commit.

Powell asserted that this kind of shady conduct is pervasive at the Department of Justice --- no kidding --- and said a finding of contempt in this case AND FOR THE INDICTMENT TO BE DISMISSED (emphasis mine) would be a remedy.

She even referenced the 2009 federal case against Sen. Ted Stevens, over which Judge Sullivan also presided. In that case, the judge found those prosecutors in contempt for failing to produce exculpatory evidence, called their conduct “outrageous,” dismissed them from the case, and dismissed Sen. Stevens’ conviction. Talk about deja vu. Powell is brilliant, and the choice of her to handle this particular case is brilliant as well.

For the specific evidence she is seeking –- in its original, unredacted form, not prosecutors’ notes –- as well as her arguments that the evidence against Flynn was obtained through illegal means, here is a detailed article from The Epoch Times, an outstanding source in general on the FBI scandal.

    The wheels of Justice slowly grinding out the Truth. I subscribe to the Epoch Times and it's my Go To source for REAL Journalism. I know it must be true because the NY Times is really upset. Keep up the Heat Gov. Your so needed during this Silent Revolution.

    Not guilty and I think he was blackmailed into saying he was. Hope they drop any charges against him and go after those who really deserve to be found guilty

    Dear Mike,
    Michael Flynn should counter sue the government, and all the people personally for there roll in the illegal Russia Hoax. comey , brenan, clapper, hillary, obama, jarret and all the rest of them! He should be the richest man in America. They actually had a operational name for the crime "operation crossfire" Talk about turning the government on the people! Still no law enforcement? (for Republicans)

    I want to see Mike Flynn completely cleared of all charges and those who railroaded him punished and lose their licenses. This DEEP STATE crap has gone on long enough.

    I cannot see how he loses this fight...and I hope he is awarded a gazillion dollars. This whole episode has been outrageous to watch. I am so ashamed of our DOJ and FBI.

    The amount of stress he has endured, I can only imagine. I hope and pray he has a personal relationship with Jesus.

    The Deep State mentality is so established within the DOJ that abuses of power are the norm, not the exception. Purging these miscreants off the public payroll should have started the very first day of this administration.
    The longer we wait to overhaul federal hiring and retention standards the closer we are to denying citizens of their rights by those sworn to defend them.

    I thought it was a disgrace the way they treated that man. I am glad that he is fighting back. I think that he should sue them also, and get all of the money back that they caused him to spend in legal fees.

    It is about time General Flynn and others started fighting back. This kind of thing has gone on for too long.

    Charges against Flynn should be dismissed and all cost be paid by Mueller!

    I really like this newsletter, but the fact I have to go through Captcha, every time to comment, is a pain and I refuse to do it. Maybe I’m doing something wrong.

    Mike...This is really good news for Mike Flynn. These deep state people were out from before Trump was inaugurated to destroy him and his presidency. It has been blatantly obvious from the time of the 2016 election that the liberal left and the Dems were and did do every no good rotten thing against the Trump administration they could. For Mike Flynn's case to be dismissed would be a wonderful slapdown of these miserable, selfish, dishonest people. They can run black lists or whatever they want but come November 3, 2020 there are millions of Americans that I think are going to render a massive decision against this kind of behavior. I will be one of them! I also think he should sue them bigly for actual and punitive damages for what they have done to him, his reputation and his family.

    Thank God!! I am happy to hear he has a new lawyer who is fighting for General Flynn. I have felt all along he was innocent and being used as a scapegoat by the Mueller team. I hope he goes free, he does not belong in prison. I also hope when he is set free he sues the crap out of Mueller and his vicious team of investigators so they can be personally responsible for their behavior!!

    I'm praying for Michael Flynn & hope he is freed & compensated for all that he's lost. I also hope those that prosecuted him find themselves accountable for ruining his life. Amen!
