Michael Flynn

A word on Jeff Jensen

Featured image Yesterday I noted that Attorney General Barr has tasked Jeff Jensen, the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri, with a review of the case brought against former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. In addition to stints with PriceCoopersWaterhouse as a CPA, with the FBI as a Special Agent, with the Eastern District of Missouri US Attorney’s office as an Assistant United States Attorney, Jensen also worked, »

And now, the Flynn review

Featured image Attorney General Barr has reportedly tasked Jeff Jensen, the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri, with a review of the case brought against former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. We have closely followed the Flynn case, which seems to have involved an operation run against him by the Comey FBI and Obama holdover Sally Yates. One should think that such a review is long overdue. The »

Flynn sentencing delayed (again)

Featured image We have closely followed developments in the prosecution of former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, set up by James Comey and others in the early days of the Trump administration. Having pleaded guilty to one count of making false statements to the FBI, General Flynn moved for dismissal of the case on the ground of egregious government misconduct. That motion having been denied, General Flynn has moved to withdraw »

Flynn files sworn statement

Featured image Earlier this month new counsel for former Trump NSA Michael Flynn brought a motion seeking the withdrawal of his guilty plea to one count of making false statements to the FBI. I briefly noted the motion and embedded the PDF here. General Flynn has now filed a sworn statement in support of the motion. I have embedded the statement below. Politico’s Josh Gerstein has a good story on it all »

Flynn seeks to strike guilty plea

Featured image With sentencing scheduled on January 28 and the government asking for imposition of a sentence from 0 to six months, Michael Flynn has filed a motion to withdraw his guilty plea (motion embedded below). Politico’s Josh Gerstein has an excellent story on the motion and pulls this quote from it: “The government’s stunning and vindictive reversal of its earlier representations to this Court are incredible, vindictive, in bad faith, and »

Judge takes cheap shot at Gen. Flynn’s lawyer

Featured image In his post about Judge Emmet Sullivan’s decision refusing to find prosecutorial misconduct in the case against Michael Flynn, Scott noted that Sullivan berated Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, for lifting a portion of her brief to the court. Scott added that Sullivan’s accusation “is misplaced,” but did not discuss the matter further because it was not the subject of the post. Jonathan Turley takes up Sullivan’s accusation in this article. »

Flynn filleted

Featured image General Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to one count of false statements in the Mueller miasma. After pleading guilty to the charge on two separate occasions, Flynn retained new counsel, proclaimed his innocence, alleged prosecutorial misconduct, urged the court to hold the prosecutors in contempt, and sought dismissal of the case against him based on government misconduct. Having chosen to forego a motion to withdraw his guilty plea and to waive »

In the Flynn case, DoJ seeks delay

Featured image I wrote most recently about developments in the case against former Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn in “In the Flynn case, you’ve got to be kidding me.” General Flynn is the preeminent victim of the Russia hoax; the case against him was set up by the dirty Comey brigade in the senior ranks of the FBI (including Comey himself), with the assistance of Acting Attorney General Sally Yates. Flynn »

DoJ responds to Flynn

Report: Judge Sullivan cancels hearing in Gen. Flynn’s case

Featured image Judge Emmet Sullivan reportedly has cancelled a November hearing he had scheduled in the case of Gen. Michael Flynn. Judge Sullivan said he is cancelling the hearing “in view of the parties’ comprehensive briefing concerning Defendant’s Motion to Compel Production of Brady Material.” In other words, he has all the argumentation he needs to rule on this motion. In this post, John discussed and embedded Flynn’s reply brief in support »

More Bombshells From the Flynn Prosecution

Featured image General Michael Flynn still awaits sentencing. Meanwhile his new lawyer, Sidney Powell, is tormenting the prosecutors and the FBI, uncovering corruption in the FBI and the Department of Justice that, she credibly alleges, included the framing of General Flynn. Is that too strong? I don’t think so. Yesterday Powell filed a reply brief in support of her motion to compel the production of more exculpating material by the prosecution, and »

Calling Mr. Mifsud

Featured image The full story of the plot by the FBI and the CIA, along with others in the Obama administration, to swing the 2016 election to Hillary Clinton and then, having failed at that, to disable President Trump’s administration, has not yet been told. And it may never be. U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation represents the best hope that most if not all of the true story will come out. Durham »

The Powell factor in the Flynn case

Featured image Former Assistant United States Attorney Sidney Powell now represents Michael Flynn in the criminal case that still awaits his sentencing. This past Monday Powell and Flynn appeared together in court for a status hearing before Judge Emmet Sullivan. A partially redacted transcript of the hearing is posted here on Scribd. Margot Cleveland commented on the hearing last week in the Federalist column “Michael Flynn Attorney Suggests Special Counsel Withheld Key »

Judge Sullivan stands down

Featured image Judge Emmet Sullivan ordered the government to produce transcripts of recordings in the case against Michael Flynn, over which he is presiding. Before getting to the government’s excused defiance of this order, I want to reiterate a point that has consumed my interest because of its revelatory qualities. It is thanks to Judge Sullivan that we have the unedited transcript of Trump attorney John Dowd’s voicemail message to Flynn lawyer »

The Flynn tapes

Featured image You may have read last week about newly unredacted files arising from Michael Flynn’s cooperation with the Special Counsel under his plea agreement. NBC News, for example, reports that “Flynn told investigators that people linked to the Trump administration and Congress reached out to him in an effort to interfere in the Russia probe[.]” NBC News quotes from a newly unredacted portion of the government’s sentencing memo: “The defendant informed »

Washington Post magnifies Sullivan’s false claim about Flynn

Featured image It’s too early to say what President Trump’s legacy will be. However, one part of his legacy is already cemented. He has caused a large segment of America to despise the mainstream media. The mainstream media deserves to be despised. Consider the Washington Post’s treatment of Michael Flynn’s sentencing hearing earlier this week. At the hearing, Judge Emmet Sullivan suggested that Flynn might have committed “treason” by lobbying for the »

Flynn’s fate (10)

Featured image The sentencing hearing before Judge Sullivan in the case of Michael Flynn was weird beyond belief yesterday. Judge Sullivan came across as a loose cannon, sounding off like a barroom loudmouth vaguely aware of the relevant facts but not too careful about them. Byron York provides a good summary. In its editorial today (accessible here via Outline), the Wall Street Journal tactfully characterizes the hearing as a “fiasco.” Flynn is »
