The New Bombshell and The Case for Michael Flynn’s Exoneration and Prosecution Against the Deep State
If there’s one case in contemporary politics that epitomizes the tragic corruption of the FBI, the politicization of the justice process and the iniquity of the Deep State, it’d be none other than the persistent persecution of General Michael T. Flynn. The investigation into him, as well as his prosecution, is among the most glaring malpractices by the Justice Department.
Back in 2017, General Flynn was charged with "willfully and knowingly making false, fictitious and fraudulent statements" to the FBI when he was interviewed about his perfectly legitimate conversation with the Russian ambassador. He later pleaded guilty to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team in December of that year as part of a plea bargain advised by his lawyers at that time from the controversial Covington & Burling firm. However, the entire process seems now more than ever fraught with knaveries, as many have speculated.
A new bombshell document, handed over to Flynn’s newly-tapped defense attorney Sidney Powell by the Justice Department, seems to contain exculpatory evidence. The document is currently under court seal and therefore unattainable by the general public, but as Powell stated in a supplementary court filing submitted on Friday April 24, it “proves Mr. Flynn’s allegations of having been deliberately set up and framed by corrupt agents at the top of the FBI”.
In that filing, Powell asserted that the document exposes a conspiracy between leadership figures in the FBI and the DOJ “either to create an offense they could prosecute or at least get him [Flynn] fired” in both handwriting and email forms. If true, this would mean Flynn has always been innocent and the whole prosecutorial procedures against him an arrant hoax.
Furthermore, the 2 FBI agents who interviewed Flynn confirmed to have found no indication of mendacity during the interview whatsoever. The apparent truth here is that Flynn didn't try to delude the investigators. So why was he charged? It's unconscionable by any conceivable standard to charge someone for a crime they didn't commit, to begin with, and even much more when you charge them with a matter of your own fabrication.
Powell also stated that the document “defeats any argument that the interview of Mr. Flynn on January 24 was material to any ‘investigation.’” Under federal statute (Section 1001, of Title 18 of the United States Code), making false statements to investigators is criminal and actionable only if the statements are material to the investigation being conducted. Otherwise, the perpetrator couldn’t be prosecuted. If Flynn’s interview falls into the latter case as the document suggests, the charge against him would have been invalid all along.
But why, then, did he admit his "guilt" knowing he’s framed and the charge against him was of a highly questionable basis? Why exactly did the completely guiltless general capitulate and plead guilty? Another explosive revelation: Flynn was coerced into accepting the plea bargain to save his son, Michael G. Flynn, from prosecution.
As Powell wrote in her motion, “Not only did he make baseless threats to indict Michael G. Flynn, he made a side deal not to prosecute Michael G. Flynn as a material term of the plea agreement”, in referral to Gordon Van Greck, the prosecutor specifically responsible for her client’s case. Michael G. Flynn worked for his father’s private intelligence firm, the Flynn intel group, and the Mueller prosecution threatened to charge him for failing to register as a foreign agent in compliance with the Foreign Agent Registration Act (or FARA for short) should the former Trump aide not plead guilty even though there still remains a sound question as to whether such a charge would be viable.
Already embattled financially by the exorbitant costs of legal fees incurred, having been forced to sell his house in 2018 to cover those fees, and guided by his then-incumbent defense team from Covington & Burling, Flynn accepted the terms and “admitted” to lying to the FBI. But while much of the deal was recorded in the plea agreement, this part (that his son wouldn’t be charged if he pleaded guilty) was not. Instead it was required to be maintained clandestine to preclude the prospect of it being presented in court as a Giglio material. This is precisely why the public was generally oblivious to this malfeasance of Deep State prosecutors until the jaw-dropping revelation last month although some preliminarily conjectured.
The entirety of this information by every imaginable measure manifests the egregious mishandling of the Flynn case and definitely scalding for every public official involved in the indefatigable harassment of the ex-Trump aide and the partisan crusade to perpetuate the duplicitous Russian collusion narrative and defame the president. What’s worse is the fact that it was buried, hidden away from Flynn’s defense team as part of a cover-up scheme.
It’s known that under the Supreme Court’s ruling in Brady v. Maryland, the prosecution is obliged to transmit all exculpatory evidence to the defendant, and this new document is no exception. Flynn and his legal team clearly have a right to access it, which would have enabled him to wage an expedient and triumphant legal battle to overturn his plea long ago. Alas, the FBI and the DOJ stonewalled them, preventing them from obtaining it. The FBI and the DOJ even once claimed that the original witness report of Flynn’s interview in 2017 was “missing” and instead released its revised versions.
That isn’t transparent at all. Obviously Deep State bureaucrats were trying their best to realize a Flynn conviction and inflict collateral damage on the Trump administration by inferring a collusion with Russia. Fortunately, they’re appreciably experiencing a setback. After Attorney General William Barr, profoundly perturbed by the murky nature of the case, ordered a review on it in February, putting the widely venerated Jeff Jensen in charge, this revealing piece of evidence emerged and accoutred the Flynn camp for its ongoing legal assay.
Indeed, the evidence will likely exonerate Flynn, but even when he’s exonerated, its duty would still be far from over. Justice was trampled by the men and women at the top of the FBI and the DOJ aided by some of their subordinates. By conniving to incriminate an innocent Trump aide and then engaging in a cover-up attempt to besmirch his integrity and the president’s, they have abused their powers and disgracefully weaponized the justice process to pursue their partisan goal. They must all be held accountable for their wrongdoings. Only when they are will justice be truly served.
