Flynn Case Begins to Completely Blow Up
Attorney General Bill Barr is now wise to the fact that the District Court for the District of Columbia is hostile territory. Despite Barr having placed his own man, Timothy Shea, at its helm, the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office still throbs to the tune of “Resist” and the jihad against Trump conducted there by Robert Mueller’s legal terrorists. This is where the crimes against Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, George Papadopoulos, and General Michael Flynn went down, not only because of inflamed prosecutors but because many of the Judges there, Amy Berman Jackson in the lead, are also partisans of the coup.
That is why Barr sent the Flynn file out to the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri, Jeffrey Jensen, for a review of exculpatory evidence which might have been hidden by the FBI or DOJ previously in Flynn’s case. Now, that undisclosed evidence has begun to be disclosed. In a filing on Friday, April 24, Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, disclosed two pages of it. Then four more explosive pages were disclosed Wednesday, and more of the material is on the way, possibly on Thursday or Friday of this week and continuing thereafter.
Everyone who has seen the documents says they are explosive and document a scheme to frame up General Flynn, perpetrated by the FBI’s James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Joe Pientka, and Lisa Page followed by an absolutely corrupt prosecution led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
There is a context to the releases. The FBI had FISA intercepts of calls between the Russian Ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, and Flynn apparently discussing Obama’s expulsion of Russian diplomats and sanctions based on the bogus claim that Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. election on behalf of Donald Trump along with an upcoming UN vote. They had a transcript of the intercept, obviously forwarded by Obama’s intelligence crew, furious that such a conversation had ever taken place. It occurred in the last days of Obama’s term, as Flynn was preparing to assume his post as President Trump’s National Security Adviser. The DOJ plan was, as the new documents say explicitly, to “get Flynn to lie about it, so that we can prosecute him or get him fired.” It was a planned ambush, a perjury trap.
Barack Obama absolutely despised Michael Flynn for calling out and exposing the fact that Obama armed Isis and Al Qaeda in Syria in order to overthrow Bashar Al Assad. As far back as 2014, MI6’s Sir Richard Dearlove and Stefan Halper, key players in the coup against Donald Trump, outrageously smeared Michael Flynn, by lying that he had fallen for a KGB honey trap when he engaged in a discussion about Russian intelligence history with a Russian historian, Svetlana Lokhova at Dearlove’s Cambridge Security Initiative. They hated the fact that Flynn thought Russia and the United States could cooperate in defeating the very terrorists Obama and his British masters were arming.
Obama forced Flynn out as DIA Director in 2014, fired him, and warned Donald Trump explicitly not to hire him. Trump made Flynn National Security Advisor, knowing that the intelligence community was rotten. Flynn knew where the skeletons were in the closets, and his charge was to reorganize and right the ship. As the result of the FBI visit, a follow-up visit by Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates warning that Flynn had possibly violated the Logan Act, a never prosecuted statute, and accompanying press hysteria, Flynn resigned from the Trump Administration. The public statement said he had lied to Vice President Pence about his conversations with Ambassador Kislyak.
We already knew from previous disclosures Flynn’s new attorney Sidney Powell has pulled from a kicking and screaming DOJ and FBI that Deputy Director Andrew McCabe practiced calling Flynn to set up the interview about what he said to Kislyak. You don’t need an attorney, McCabe told Flynn. Both agents who went to see Flynn at the White House were instructed to make the interview jovial and relaxed, not to alert Flynn to any danger.
We already knew, according to Jim Comey’s snide and obnoxious performance before a fawning Resist audience at the New York’s 92nd Street Y on December 9, 2018, that he sent the agents in without following normal procedures for an FBI investigative team to enter the White House, because he thought he could take advantage of the “chaos” of the incoming Trump Administration. He was doing something he would not “have gotten away with” in the Clinton or Obama Administration. That line got Comey appreciative giggles at the 92nd Street Y. Comey added that Flynn had no idea why his agents were coming.
We also already knew that Agents Joe Pientka and Peter Strzok returned from their White House interview of Flynn and said that they did not think Flynn was lying. Per their instructions, they did not advise him of his right to an attorney, they did not advise him he was in legal jeopardy, they did not provide the warning normally used by FBI agents that telling a lie or being less than forthcoming in the interview could result in a prosecution under 18 U.S.C. § 1001, and they did not show him the transcript of the intercepts. All of these are standard procedures for the FBI under our Constitution. We also knew that their original 302 of the interview, the report normally written immediately after such an interview occurs, has disappeared and is nowhere to be found. Instead, there were various versions of the 302 which had been “edited” by such as Lisa Page.
In pursuit of an initial major scalp, Robert Mueller went after Flynn full Torquemada. He threatened him with an indictment under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. He threatened to put Flynn’s son in jail for years. Mounting legal fees from Flynn’s white shoe D.C. law firm, Covington and Burling, bankrupted Flynn and forced him to sell his house to pay legal fees. To save his son, Flynn pled to making a false statement in his interview with the FBI at the White House.
Sidney Powell is now asking Judge Emmett Sullivan to exonerate Flynn based on outrageous government misconduct. Flynn is also seeking to withdraw his guilty plea.
The documents filed on Friday, April 24, have the Mueller prosecutor of Flynn, Brandon van Grack making a gentleman’s agreement with Flynn’s former attorney, Robert Kelner, of Covington, to not include the non-prosecution of Flynn’s son formally in the written Flynn plea deal. It was an “off-the-record” agreement that was to be kept secret. Since Flynn was scheduled to be a government witness in his former partner’s FARA criminal prosecution, that side deal was meant to blind his former partner’s attorneys to the actual terms of Flynn’s deal with the government and hinder any impeachment. It is a straight up and clear violation of the exculpatory evidence disclosure rule of United States v. Giglio. The four documents released Wednesday evening are the beginning of the document trail on Flynn’s setup. They are internal documents of the FBI conspirators in the process of preparing their scheme. The first document from Peter Strzok includes numerous what-if’s for the call from McCabe to Flynn. For example, what if he says, “Am I under investigation?” The second document consists of exchanges between Strzok and Page concerning how to minimize the normal warning about false statements under 18 U.S.C. § 1001. Page suggests how to soft peddle it.
The last document in this disclosure consists of a page of written notes, apparently by someone troubled by the “plan,” not because it is wrong, but because if the White House figures out that the FBI is playing games with Flynn, “it will be furious.” The writer says the only way to “protect the institution” is by not playing games.
The writer notes that he or she agreed that Flynn should not be shown the transcript of the call, a normal procedure by the FBI, but now is having second thoughts. It is here that the scheme discussed is most directly reflected by the writer. “What is our goal? Truth/admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired? … I don’t see how getting someone to admit their wrongdoing is going easy on him. If we get him to admit to breaking the Logan Act, give facts to DOJ and have them decide. Or, if he initially lies, then we present him with [the transcript] and he admits it, document for DOJ, and let them decide how to address it.” The writer, whoever he or she is, is, in all probability, reflecting a discussion where following normal confrontation procedures for a witness by showing them the evidence was dismissed as “going easy on Flynn.” Separately, numerous sources have told the media that U.S. Attorney John Durham is investigating the leak of the Flynn–Kislyak intercept transcript to Washington Post reporter David Ignatius. That leak of classified information is a felony. It was part of the orchestrated setup of Flynn’s White House interview by the FBI.
