We’ve followed the Michael Flynn story from the beginning and have been hoping the best for him, praying for him and his family after he was swept up in the effort to take down President Trump and pressured to plead guilty to lying to the FBI when he (and even his questioners) knew he hadn’t.

Flynn needed a fighter and he finally got one. His fortunes started to turn when he replaced his original legal counsel with firebrand attorney Sidney Powell. I tell you, if you ever need someone in your corner, she’s the one to have. And she’s got a lot more to work with now that the IG report on FISA abuse in the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign, “Crossfire Hurricane,” has shown horrific misconduct that stomped all over the rights of Americans such as Flynn.

Powell has just submitted a white-hot 27-page addendum to her previous motions, in which Flynn formally asks Judge Emmet Sullivan to allow him to withdraw his guilty plea. Powell is talking tougher than ever, and her demand that the charges against her client be dropped is now based on previously withheld government documents and, importantly, the IG report on FISA abuse. In response, prosecutors have said they will consider no jail time for Flynn (mighty nice of them) and would offer probation instead.

Um, I don’t think they quite heard her. And when they don’t hear her, she gets louder. Powell is telling them Flynn is INNOCENT. She says, “The IG report is replete with exculpatory information that, had it been known to Flynn, he never would have pled guilty.” She wants the charges DROPPED, citing “government conduct dishonestly wielded to destroy the National Security Adviser to President Trump as part of their larger anti-Trump scheme.”

Flynn himself is speaking up, too. He has connected the dots and can see, looking back, what was done to him and why. In the supplemental motion, he wrote, “In truth, I never lied. My guilty plea rankled me throughout this process, and while I allowed myself to succumb to the threats from the government to save my family, I believe I was grossly misled about what really happened.”

    I pray that the judge will straighten up his act and dismiss charges against Lt Gen Flynn. I don't understand how things even got INTO court--since comey admitted (bragged) about conning the Lt. Gen. and since those in the non-inquiry inquiry says he did not lie. You know, the guys on the dem team--they don't believe their own guys? Well, maybe--since they seem to do a lot of lying themselves?

    And I think Paul Manafort should get to go home. He was railroaded, too, and it's horrifying to know he's in prison when there are so many dems who haven't even been charged. Hopefully that is yet. I still say every dem (including all the way to the top) should have to be in solitary confinement once they are arrested--through the trial, then to a real prison for after sentencing (all should be very LONG sentences.) And, not be placed in a white collar day-camp type of prison, but put them where they put Lt Gen Flynn. In fact, Ryker's would be appropriate for them.

    Sure makes me wonder what agenda the IG had. Time to expose the truth.

    Honestly,when that IG report hit the desk of the judge,there is no reason not to exonerate this great #Patriot that has Served his Country&was bullied by our Intel community. Intel community should be on trial not General Flynn. As parents we know how much we would protect our children from the abuse of power from an Intel Agency. Should have never happened&this great man list everything he worked hard to have for his family. It's the right thing to do given the facts,exonerate General Flynn.

    Can we possibly start to see the real crumbling of these wicked people & release the good people like Flynn & others from their bullying. I think jail time would be appropriate. Solitary confinement. We all know, putting these goof balls in jail, they'll put their heads together, to come up with another waste of money & time plan.
